Make Sensible Substitutions
In fact, it's even more lethal than the fries you bypassed, which would have been 230 calories and 11 grams of fat. A smarter solution would be to enjoy your potato with Butter buds, broccoli and a tablespoon of fat-free cheddar cheese. It's every bit as good without being bad for you. In order to save calories when substituting, you have to make wise choices. Opt for the grilled chicken sandwich with Dijon mustard on a whole-wheat bun instead of a fried chicken sandwich with mayonnaise. Instead of the fettuccine alfredo, go for whole-wheat angel hair with marinara. Draw on your nutrition knowledge to make the healthiest choices. Remember, jumping from the frying pan to the fryer isn't going to get you any closer to your weight-loss goals.
