Whole Milk – Calorie Savings
How to Save Food Calories and Lose Weight By Drinking Fat-Free Milk
Calorie Savings – Whole Milk
Choosing the right milk to drink is important 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 – Whole Milk
- 1 cup whole milk contains about 150 calories.
- Once a day, this adds up to 54,750 calories, per year
Choose Lower Calorie – Fat-Free Milk
- 1 cup fat-free milk has 90 calories.
- That’s 32,850 calories per year.
If you substitute fat-free for whole milk in this way, you save 21,900 calories, per year.
Weight Reduction Consequences of this Calorie Saving
21,900 calories per year is the equivalent of 6.25 pounds of weight.
