Cutting 300 Calories A Day Shows Health Benefits

Cutting 300 calories out of your diet each day will not only help you lose weight but may also help prevent cardiovascular diseases. The benefits of calorie-cutting come after researchers studied 200 people who were at a normal weight or slightly overweight but in overall pretty healthy condition. The average weight loss by cutting 300 calories per day for two years was around 16.5 pounds. Those studied also experienced better insulin and protein levels and improved lipid levels. Duke University’s School of Medicine hopes that continued research into calorie-cutting could help people avoid heart disease and diabetes.

Could you cut 300 calories, or around two cookies, out of your diet each day?
