Calories Count!

Small changes add up to BIG rewards.  Spring is a good time to give up something, like a food infatuation, such as cookies, ice cream, or chips.  Remember calories count and 3500 calories = 1 pound of body fat.  Therefore, reducing caloric intake by 250 calories per day can result in a 2-pound weight loss within 1 month.  That’s 2 cookies or a bowl of ice cream.  You can even try decreasing 500 calories a day, which would be a 1-pound weight loss within 1 week or 4 pounds in 1 month.  What can you give up for just 30 days?
