French Toast – Calorie Savings
How to Save Food Calories and Lose Weight If You Enjoy Eating French Toast
Calorie Savings – Weight Loss – French Toast
French Toast is not the perfect diet food if you want to lose weight.
Don’t forget, in order to reduce our weight, we need to reduce calories-in until they are less than our calories-out. Exercise helps us to increase calories-out but we can also reduce calories-in by making better food calorie choices.
Higher Calorie Example – French Toast
- 3 slices French toast with syrup contains about 800 calories.
- Once a week, that’s 41,600 calories, per year
Choose Lower Calorie
- 2 x 6″ buckwheat pancakes with 1 tbsp syrup contain 325 calories.
- That’s 16,900 calories per year.
If you substitute pancakes for French Toast in this way, you save about 24,700 calories, per year.
Weight Reduction Consequences of this Calorie Saving
24,700 calories per year is the equivalent of 7 pounds of weight.
