Keep your calorie count down simply by buying fewer unhealthy foods.

Reducing the amount of unhealthy food in your diet can help you to keep your daily calorie count to a healthy level. A simple way to reduce the amount of unhealthy foods that you eat is to simply buy fewer of them.

For example, if you tend to buy five large bags of potato chips every month, buy fewer by purchasing just three bags instead. After some time you can try to further reduce this amount to just one bag. Do the same for other unhealthy foods. Cut down on the number of chocolate bars or packets of sweets that you usually buy. Your weight will thank you for it!

No more splurging

You will also find that you will be saving money too. Unhealthy food can make a big dent in your budget, especially if you tend to splurge on it regularly. Consider saving that money and when it has added up to a considerable amount, use it to purchase something that can aid your weight-loss efforts. Running shoes, skipping ropes or even a pedometer are some suggestions.

Store unhealthy foods in a difficult-to-reach sight

It can also be a good idea to store the unhealthy foods that you do buy in a place where it will be very difficult to access. It will thus require more effort to access and you may just be tempted to forego the temptation to give in. Definitely worth giving it a try!
