To lose or manage weight, we need to use more calories than we consume. In other words, we need to create a calorie deficit, and every calorie that we manage to save helps us create that deficit. Approximately one pound can be lost in a week with a daily deficit of 500 calories a day.
Here are 10 easy methods that can be implemented into your daily routine that will help cut your calorie intake.
1. Eat home cooked meals
Home cooked meals can help you to cut calorie intake. A study revealed that cooking dinner at home six or seven nights a week resulted in an intake of 150 calories less a day in comparison to cooking at home once a week or less. Home cooked dinners are also associated with the consumption of healthier foods.
