Simple Swaps for Weightloss

When I made the choice to stop eating junk and to start eating clean a few years ago, I learned how the small changes really do lead to some pretty big changes.
So big that I lost 45lbs from clean eating alone!

I would tweak my diet here and there and try to think up healthier alternatives or versions to my favorite junk food.

Here are some samples of my simple swaps!

Old Breakfast vs New Breakfast
Cinnamon Toast Crunch vs Oatmeal with Splenda with pecans or fresh fruit
Pancakes with sugary syrup vs Protein pancakes with sugar free syrup
Cinnamon rolls vs Special K Protein Cereal
Bacon with cheese grits vs 2 scrambled eggs with 2 slices turkey bacon

Old Lunch vs New Lunch
McDonalds double cheeseburger vs Healthy Choice steamer meal
Ham & cheese sandwich with mayo vs Turkey sandwich with lowfat cheese on whole wheat with mustard
Fried chicken tenders vs Grilled chicken salad with fruit
Slice of pepperoni pizza vs Lean Cuisine Pizza
Philly cheesesteak sub vs Roast beef sub from Subway

Old Dinner vs New Dinner
Fried Chicken from KFC vs Rotisserie chicken from local deli (sans skin)
Meatloaf with mashed potatoes vs Lean 6oz steak with baked sweet potato
Fried catfish vs Baked lemon garlic tilapia
Olive Garden seafood fettucini vs Olive Garden minestrone soup with side salad

Old Dessert/Snack vs New Dessert/Snack
Ice cream vs Greek yogurt (Freeze in your freezer)
Chips vs Rice Cakes or Fresh fruit
Blueberry Muffins vs My healthy banana energy muffins
Milk chocolate vs My peanut butter energy balls
