Replacing unhealthy foods with healthy ones is an easy way to lose weight and feel better

So many complicated diet plans, so little time. That’s why food and drink swaps work so well for dropping pounds. Every time you reach for any of the fatty, sugary or doughy foods and beverages listed below, simply swap it out for the healthier alternative. In every case, option B is just as tasty and satisfying, and choosing it will make a big difference to your waistline and your overall health in the long run.

 

Whole grain bread

Whole-grain bread instead of white bread

White bread is stripped of a lot of nutrients before it’s even baked. Whole-grain bread, on the other hand, is still full of bran and germ, which contain vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, protein, and fiber.

Club soda

Club soda instead of pop

Drinking just one can of pop accounts for nearly all of your recommended daily intake of sugar. Club soda has the same satisfying fizzy taste, but without the empty calories. For some added zing, squeeze in some citrus juice.

Delicious bowl of nuts and fruit

Nuts instead of potato chips

Kick the salty, fatty chip habit by replacing them with almonds or cashews. Nuts contain healthy fats and more fiber and nutrients than potato chips, so you can eat less and stay full for longer.
