12. Switch to lower-fat milk.

Switch from regular milk to 2 percent fat. If you already drink 2 percent, go down another notch to 1 percent or skim milk. Starting at 150 calories for a cup of whole milk and working down to 2 , then 1 percent and finally to skim milk, each step downward cuts the calories by about 20 percent. Gradually declining the milk fat content will allow your rich palate to adjust subtly to a less rich milk. Once you train your taste buds to enjoy skim milk, you'll have cut the calories in the whole milk by about half and trimmed the fat by 95 percent.
