10 Healthy Food Swaps for Losing Weight

Replace your sour cream topping with Greek yogurt.

Standard toppings for baked potatoes are butter, margarine, or sour cream, but you can save calories and fat by trying nonfat Greek yogurt on your potato instead. And, Greek yogurt has the same thick and creamy consistency of sour cream.

Two tablespoons (1 ounce) of nonfat Greek yogurt has only 24 calories and no fat, compared to 50 calories and 5 grams of fat for sour cream, 140 calories and 16 grams of fat for margarine, and 200 calories with 23 grams of fat for butter.
