New Delhi: Everyone wants to lose weight and might have tried doing every possible thing to achieve their fitness goal. But we fail to follow the basic weight loss logic of consuming less calories and burning more, instead, a lot of empty calories are consumed on a daily basis.

Here are some simple ways to cut down on your empty calorie intake:

Eat fruits instead of juice

One should eat fruits instead of drinking its juice as it contains more fibre and healthy sugars and also helps reduce the risk of diabetes considerably.

Avoid softened foods

Instead of turning fruits and vegetables into smoothies, meat or chicken into sausages and salamis, consume the natural form of the food, as it is good and healthy for your body. So, avoid softened foods to cut down empty calories.

Take time to chew

One must take time to chew their food as it will make you eat less and is good for digestion as well. Quick eaters consume 10 per cent more food than those who eat slowly.

Get enough sleep

You can keep your calorie intake under check by sleeping on time and getting enough sleep. If you are sleep deprived then you end up eating more which makes you pile on the kilos faster.
