Losing weight can be difficult. With all the dieting, exercising and avoiding, there is a lot to think about, and it can be hard to stay on track. So why not make it a little easier by making seven simple changes to your daily life?

Sometimes little changes in the way you eat can add up to big calorie cuts. So here’s a list of seven easy ways you can change your diet to lose weight:

Cut down on your carbonated drinks
Start by cutting back on the number you drink every day. Then stop drinking them on weekdays. Then stop drinking them all together. Cutting down on your carbonated drinks can save you hundreds of calories a day.

Subtract the starch
An easy way to eat fewer starches it to cut all of them in half. Subtracting half the starches from your plate every time you eat will add up to a lot of weight loss over time.

Skip dessert
Every time you eat desert, you’re adding an additional 200 to 400 calories to your meal. Every now and then, skip it.

Dress down your salads
Salads are low-calorie and healthy—until you load them up with dressing. One easy way to cut calories is to cut down the amount of salad dressing you use.

Go Greek
There are three great reasons Greek yogurt is so popular: It tastes great, it’s good for you and can be used in a lot of different ways. It can serve as a substitute for cooking oil, mayonnaise, sour cream and more.

Don’t eat everything
There is no such thing as a “clean plate club,” so stop trying to join it and make a point to always leave something on the plate.

Say no to seconds
If you do eat everything on your plate and are still hungry, help yourself to some more vegetables, but say no to second servings of carbs and meat.
