Got this idea from Real Age. Food fact: you can lose 10 lbs a year by cutting 100 calories in a day. Genius! It's staring us right smack in our faces and we didn't have an inkling whatsoever. Or, we just don't know how much is 100 calories and how does it look like. Well, I know for a fact that 1 cup of rice is 150 calories and 1 slice of white loaf bread is 75 calories. Here's a list on how to save 100 calories per day and lose 10 lbs. in a year.

From Lisa Young, RD.
Eat only half a candy bar or energy bar (both pack a lot of calories).
Use 1 tablespoon of salad dressing instead of 2 (toss the salad really well and you won't even notice the difference).
Choose small 1-ounce pitas instead of the larger 2-ounce size.
Spread 1 tablespoon of peanut butter instead of 2 on bread or crackers

Leave the last few bites of pasta on your plate.
Use one pat of butter instead of three on a baked potato.
Order a tall cappuccino instead of a grande the next time you visit Starbucks.

More ideas from RealAge

Scramble one egg for yourself, not two.
Make all your sandwiches open-faced -- omit the top slice of bread.
Skip the last three bites of any main course.
Snack on one fist-sized bunch of grapes, not two.
Grab five Hershey's dark chocolate Kisses instead of ten.
Choose a white wine spritzer over a 5-ounce glass of wine.
Have a 6-inch Roast Beef sandwich at Subway instead of a 6-inch Classic Steak & Cheese.
Order a small cup at Dairy Queen instead of a small cone.

Can you think of your own o how to save 100 calories a day? I have one. Take diet pop instead of the regular soda. Another one is, scrape off the mayo in your sandwich. Eat plain popcorn instead of buttered. There are several ways to cut down 100 calories a day. Put them to use so you may look and feel slimmer.
