Spice Up Your Condiments
It's time to toss your desk-drawer stockpile of ketchup and barbecue packets: Not only does the same amount of mustard have 12 fewer calories (so cutting out the four packets you use on your fries will save 48 calories), but the spicy yellow stuff has been shown to increase metabolism by up to 25 percent, which can shave off another 50 calories a day, says Dr. Oz. Darker varieties tend to have more metabolism-boosting power, and the capsacin in the hot and spicy varieties will make you feel more full. Spread mustard on sandwiches and on lean meats, and also mix it into dips and salad dressing.
