There's no need to make drastic changes with the No-Diet Diet. You can lose pounds by making smart substitutions. The plan is based on simple math: To lose a pound a week, cut 500 calories from the foods you eat each day. Cutting 500 calories a day is not as tough as it sounds. We've listed painless ways to save 50 to 300 calories. You'll learn calorie-saving trade-offs you can apply to any meal.

</TD></TR><TR><TD vAlign=top colSpan=2>

Instead of regular milk, cheese or yogurt, switch to reduced fat.

Avoid eating too much mayonnaise: Use a low-fat variety or mustard.

Limit fattier cuts of meat. Skipping two ounces of pork sausage saves 150 to 200 calories.

<LI>Don't drink your calories. Trade alcohol and soft drinks for water or beverages containing artificial sweeteners.

If you omit fewer than 500 calories a day, you'll still lose weight--just more slowly. The beauty of the No-Diet Diet is that even small changes add up over time.

Thanks for the tips! I know my mom has (and continues to) lose weight just by cutting back on a lot of little things like this article mentioned, and by adding some more walking into her routine. She's never gone on a "strict" diet like Atkins or Weight Watchers, but has been very successful at losing and maintaining her weight!
