If weight loss was an easy matter, there would not be any clinical trials, weight management programs, or even a need to read this article. Through inexperience and impatience, there are innumerous ways to sabotage a weight loss program. Despite eating healthy foods there are a few ways to avoid unnecessary calories:

Unnecessary eating: With all the cool ads, it might seem like you need sports bars, drinks or gels to sustain your workout. But unless you're exercising for two or more consecutive hours, you really don't need the extra calories. A balanced diet and plenty of water is sufficient.

For the food conscious, there are a few oversights that may ease the pangs of weight loss. For example, consuming one less mouthful of high-calorie foods can save up to 100 calories. To help you associate the calories with the foods you eat review the following 100 calorie food conversions:

1 tablespoon of butter, oil or margarine
An ounce of cheese
1 tablespoon of cream
1 jigger of alcohol (Rum, vodka or whiskey)
8 ounces of beer
5 ounces of wine
2 tablespoons of salad dressing
2 tablespoons of pancake syrup
1 slice of bread

Our daily lives are surrounded by extra calories. When you go to Starbucks, instead of ordering the double latte with whole milk, a skim milk should be ordered. Select to consumer more vegetables and fruits over processed foods. It takes ample portions of fruits and veggies to put a dent in the 100-calorie meter. Replace starchy foods high in calories with the following:

4-medium-sized carrots
2 cups of strawberries
7 cups of sliced cucumbers
3 cups of broccoli
3 cups of cauliflower
5 cups of shredded raw cabbage
Light popcorn
10 cups of salad greens
