How I lost 100 pounds with madly easy diet food swaps for March Madness Weight Loss Challenge

Hello my friends of this blog on how I lost 100 pounds without gastric bypass surgery or weight loss drugs. Our weight loss challenge for this month is March Madness. Here are madly easy diet food swaps and diet recipes! Before I begin, some thoughts. 

You know that show "My 600-lb Life" where patients with morbid obesity work to lose weight with gastric bypass surgery? Well, one thing I notice on every "My 600-lb Life" is not only how much calorie driven food they eat but how simple it would be to tweak them with diet food swaps. And these aren't yucky diet food swaps. They taste essentially the same. 

Quantity of food also an issue. To overcome obesity, people on "My 600-lb Life" follow a 1200 calorie diet. But the good thing about these diet food swaps is that they allow you to eat more, while still keeping to the 1200 calorie diet. This was an integral part of how I lost 100 pounds. Here are my best diet food swaps for our March Madness weight loss challenge. 

Light butter or real butter mixed half and half with light olive oil

45 calorie a slice bread (this can cut calories by up to 75%)

Joseph's lavash or pita or Fold-It protein wraps in place of bread or tortillas

grapefruit or berries in place of other fruits

whole fruit instead of juice

vegetables instead of fruit (sweeten foods with sweet potatoes of squash)

Beef instead of pork, chicken instead of beef, fish instead of chicken

falafel and hummus instead of meat

Stay tuned for more on how I lost 100 pounds without gastric bypass or weight loss drugs.
