When it comes to healthy
diet and weight
loss, little things add up. Make a smart
choice here, a subtle change there, and next thing you know, you're losing
weight — or keeping it off.
Good habits start in your pantry and refrigerator.
Try these simple substitutions: mustard for ketchup, homemade salad dressing
for "fat-free," mixed nuts for pretzels and brown for white grains
and fresh fruit for dried.
You'll make health gains without sacrificing flavor.
