100 painless ways to cut 100 or more calories a day.

So, how's those new years resolutions coming along? Health related resolutions top the list of adults age 30 to 60, with weight loss being the primary goal.

It's never too late, unless you really are dead, then it's not an issue anymore. (Sorry, but my wife and I saw the movie The Bucket List last weekend.)

In my bookmarks/favorites I saved a website with 100 painless ways to cut calories. It starts off with this:

REACHING YOUR FAT-LOSS GOALS may be easier than you think. To lose a pound of fat a month, all you need to do is cut 100 calories a day from your diet, assuming the intake and expenditure of all other calories remains the same. That's because a pound of body fat is equivalent to about 3,500 calories. So if you cut 100 calories a day for 31 days, you're cutting 3,100 calories--or about a pound.

Wait...a pound a month? Isn't that a little slow? Well, mounds of research indicate that you're more likely to keep weight off if you lose it slowly. Besides, losing a pound a month doesn't require drastic changes in your eating habits. It can be as simple as eating two egg rolls with your Chinese stir-fry instead of three. Here are 100 painless ways to cut 100 or more calories a day. As a bonus, they all reduce fat or sugar, which means, calorie for calorie, you're getting more vitamins and minerals.
