Potato Salad – Calorie Savings
How to Save Food Calories and Lose Weight When Eating Pota
Calorie Savings – Weight Loss – Potato Salad
Choosing the right potato dish is important if you want to lose weight.
Point is, in order to reduce excess fat and lose weight, we need to reduce the amount of calories we consume until it is lower than our calories-out. Exercise helps us to achieve this (by increasing calories-out) but we can also reduce calories-in by making better calorie choices.
Calorie Example – Potato Salad
- 1 cup potato salad contains 340 calories.
- Twice a week, that’s 35,360 calories, per year
Better Calorie-Choice – Baked Potato
- 6 oz baked potato, 1 tbsp ‘light’ sour cream contains 157 calories.
- That’s 16,328 calories per year.
If you substitute a baked potato for potato salad in this way, you save 19,032 calories per year.
Weight Reduction Consequences of this Calorie Saving
19,032 calories per year is the equivalent of about 5.5 pounds of weight.
