10. SWAP DESSERT/ SNACKS/ COOKING/ MAYO FOR GREEK YOGURT

11 Food swaps to lose belly fat

Swap sour cream, heavy cream or mayonnaise with Greek Yogurt. You’ll reduce fat and calorie content, and will boost calcium. Research by the University of Tennessee found that dieters who ate 3 servings of yogurt a day lost 22% more weight and 81% more belly fat than dieters who only ate yogurt once a day. It is thought that the ability of yogurt to decrease belly fat is partly due to its high calcium content. Yogurt is also rich in B vitamins and high in protein.

  • Ice cream: For a sweet treat, swap ice cream for frozen yogurt.
  • Sour cream: When you swap sour cream with Greek yogurt, you’ll barely notice a difference. It’s super easy to use yogurt instead of sour cream when making dips or serve it on top of baked potatoes or with Mexican food.
  • Baking: Swap eggs or oil with yogurt. Baking with non-fat yogurt reduces fat content, while maintaining a dense, rich texture. Reduce the amount of oil or shortening by half, and add 3/4 of yogurt for each cup of oil or shortening removed. Or top your cupcakes off with Greek yogurt frosting instead of buttercream or cream cheese frosting.
  • Heavy cream or milk: Add yogurt to dishes that need a touch of dairy such as mashed potatoes, curries, soups, sauces or pasta, instead of heavy cream or milk. To prevent curdling, add the yogurt after you’ve taken the dish off the stove, gradually reheat if needed.
  • Mayonnaise: Swap mayonnaise with yogurt in dishes such as potato, tuna or chicken salad, and salad dressings like Caesar or ranch dressing. The added tang from yogurt makes it more flavorsome.

  1. Sorry i am not trying to be a total jerk i am very intrigued by this website i love it, it is very helpful and useful!! But i was just noticing in this specific section there is a couple things that i was thrown off by and maybe i am being knit picky but when you are saying to swap foods for another i would expect the bad food to be first and the good food to be second, for instance the first item swapping oats for sugary cereals to me sounds like i should be swapping oatmeal for cocoa puffs which i do not think is your intention, the paragraph explanation under the header does coincide with your title but it is still a little offsetting, maybe i am the only one that is thinking this way but i feel it’s a little backwards, also i noticed a typo in the very first sentence of this “swapping your regular sugary cereal for rolled outs…. i think should be oats?? I do apologize i may come off as a little over analytical but i do enjoy this site greatly and i am citing this with good intentions.

  2. Sweet. I always eat old fashion oats for breakfast. not the artificial kind. I always prefer brown rice than white rice, add mix vegetables, tuna, lemon, little soy sauce, and chile. that stuff is yummy, lol.
