1. Don’t skip breakfast :

Skipping breakfast will not help you lose weight. You could be missing out on important nutrients and you could be snacking more throughout the day because you’re hungry.

 

2. Eat regularly

Eating at regular times throughout the day helps burn calories faster. It also reduces the temptation to snack on foods high in fat and sugar.

 

3. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables :

Fruits and vegetables are low in calories, low in fat and high in fiber – 3 essential ingredients for successful weight loss. They also contain many vitamins and minerals.

4. Get more active :

Being active is the key to losing weight and keeping it off. Not only does exercise offer many health benefits, but it can also help burn off those excess calories that you can’t lose through diet alone.

Find an activity that you enjoy and fits into your daily routine.

5. Drink lots of water :

People sometimes confuse thirst with hunger. You can end up consuming extra calories if a glass of water is really what you need.

 

6. Eat high-fiber foods :

Foods high in fiber can help make you feel full, which is perfect for losing weight. Fiber is found only in plant-based foods such as fruits and vegetables, oatmeal, whole grain breads, brown rice and pasta, as well as beans, peas and lentils.

7. Read food labels :

Knowing how to read food labels can help you choose healthier options. Use the calorie information to find out how a particular food fits into your daily calorie intake in the weight loss plan.

 

8. Use a smaller plate :

If you use smaller plates, you can eat smaller portions. By using smaller plates and bowls, you may be able to gradually get used to eating smaller portions without going hungry. It takes about 20 minutes for the stomach to tell the brain it’s full. So eat slowly and stop eating before you feel full.

 

9. Don’t ban foods :

Don’t ban any foods from your weight loss plan, especially the ones you like. Banning food will only make you crave it. There’s no reason why you shouldn’t enjoy the occasional treat, as long as you stay within your daily calorie intake.

10. Don’t store junk food :

To avoid temptation, don’t store junk foods at home like chocolate, cookies, chips, and sweet fizzy drinks. Instead, opt for healthy snacks like fruit, unsalted rice cakes, oatcakes, unsalted or unsweetened popcorn, and fruit juice

 

11. Reduce alcohol consumption :

A regular glass of wine can contain as many calories as a piece of chocolate. Over time, drinking too much can easily contribute to weight gain.

 

12. Plan your meals

Try to plan your breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks for the week and make sure you stick to your calorie intake. It can be helpful to make a weekly grocery list.
