If you’re struggling to shed those stubborn final kilos before that much awaited reunion dinner, try these swap-outs. Each saves approximately 100 calories – just choose five a day and feel the difference

Eat breakfast and research says you’ll consume at least 100 fewer calories over the course of the day.

Swap white bread for rye and try a little sliced banana instead of butter.

Swap store-brought muesli for rolled oats and add a few frozen berries.

Swap 2 scrambled eggs for 1 poached egg on buttered wholemeal bread.


Ditch the top slice of bread from your sandwich and eat it ‘open’ or go one step further and use lettuce instead of bread to enclose the filling.

Replace 30g cheddar cheese in your sandwich with a smear of avocado.


Try lentil Bolognese instead of the meat variety and you’ll save a hefty 250 calories per serving.
