Pasta Sauce – Calorie Savings
How to Save Food Calories and Lose Weight By Eating Lower Calorie Pasta Sauce
Calorie Savings – Weight Loss – Pasta Sauce
Choosing the right sauce is important if you want to lose weight.
Don’t forget, in order to reduce our weight, we need to reduce calories-in until it is 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 – Pesto Sauce
- 2 oz cooked pasta with 2 oz pesto sauce contains about 500 calories.
- Once a week, that’s 26,000 calories, per year
Choose Lower Calorie – Tomato Sauce
- 2 oz cooked pasta with 2 oz tomato pasta sauce has 240 calories.
- That’s 12,480 calories per year.
If you substitute tomato for pesto sauce in this way, you save about 13,520 calories, per year.
Weight Reduction Consequences of this Calorie Saving
13,520 calories per year is the equivalent of nearly 4 pounds of weight.
