Cut the Cheese

Cut the cheese…out of your diet. Regular cheese is high in fat, which means it’s very calorie-dense, and unfortunately most restaurants take a no-holds-barred approach when piling the stuff onto plates. Each deli slice on a sandwich costs you about 100 cals, and a generous layer of gooey, shredded mozzarella or cheddar atop a restaurant entrée could easily tack on 400 calories. Switch to reduced-fat varieties at home and order your sandwich, salad, or entrée sans cheese a few times a week when dining out to save yourself thousands of calories.
