5 Tips To Help Lose Weight

If you have tried everything to no avail, then you have come to the right place. You might have tried starving yourself, crazy diets and doing the macho triathlon man workout to only end up being disappointed. Most people have been there, done that, but do not give up.

Here are 5-tips to help you shed the pounds and keep the weight off even if you think you cannot lose weight.

1. Stay away from the fries.

Sorry but you are going to have to stay away from fried foods. Most foods that are fried are done so in vegetable oil, animal oil or lard. All contain lots of fat and no matter how much they are drained; they still retain a lot of the oil. It is best to regard fried foods as a no-no!

2. No meal skipping.

It has been proven if you skip meals, you are more likely to binge or overeat later in the day. Keep your meals small and eat often. It is better to eat 3-5 small meals than it is to eat fewer meals. You may end up overeating if you do. Use small plates that will make the smaller amount of food on your plate looker bigger.

3. Get an idea of your calorie intake.

Plan out your average meals for the day and then look at the labels to calculate the amount of calories you normally take in. Once you know this number, figure out a way to cut out 500-1000 calories per day. This will give you a 1-2 pound weight loss per week. Simple…right!

4. Eat a variety of foods.

Try to eat from all six of the food groups each day. That would be in moderation, fats/oils, fruits, vegetables, meat/poultry/fish, dairy and bread/pasta/rice. Eat balanced meals and you will feel fuller and more energetic. You do not have to eat foods from all of the food groups each meal, just try to eat from all the groups each day. You might have meat at dinner, but not at lunch.

5. Be a sugar buster.

Cut out the sugary drinks and snacks. That is right. If you cannot lose weight, it is time to get serious. Colas, sweet fruit drinks, cakes and cookies, be gone. Try healthier snacks for a while. You might just learn to love them.

The only person that controls you not being able to lose weight is…YOU! Losing weight healthily and keeping it off takes a lifestyle change. You must change your eating habits and daily actions if you are to shed the weight. It is time to take a stand and make the necessary changes to get to your weight loss goal.
