This makes it easier to reach the recommended daily amount of water and you feel fuller, so that you eat too much less quickly.

2. Make some simple swaps Make your own light dressing for your salad. It's tasty and it saves 80 calories with a ready-to-use variant.

3. Replace your dessert

4. Measure your portions
