An easy way to cut back on calories without feeling deprived is to cook or bake with artificial sweeteners.
You can shave 360 calories from a cake recipe that calls for 1 cup of sugar by using an artificial sweetener in place of half of it.
(You can't replace all the sugar with a substitute. Start by replacing half, and if the food doesn't brown correctly or is too heavy in texture, increase the sugar-to-sweetener ratio.)
Not all substitutes will do for baking.
