No need for speed: Weight loss is a challenging process but a rewarding and important one when you are overweight. Speed rarely wins this race. A slow more deliberate process leads to longer sustained weight loss. It starts with mentally getting past this necessity for speed. Otherwise, you will be doomed to fail. Set yourself up for success not failure! good luck!

Cut the Carbs!: A great way to reduce weight over the long-term is to cut out simple and white carbs. Our bodies don't handle them well and they end up just making us hungry again way too soon. Eliminate sugars, white four, rice and pasta, and eat proteins and animal fats instead. Also don't drink any calories! along with regular exercise, you'll see steady weight loss, and you can sustain this for long-term!

Diet and Exercise: The goal is to burn more calories than you consume. Watch your diet-eliminate junk food and don't over eat. Consider liquids as well-soda, alcohol, etc contains a lot of calories. Exercise multiple times a week. If you find an activity you really enjoy you'll be more likely to engage in that activity. Avoid fad diets that could prevent you from getting adequate nutrition. Make healthy choices!

Gradual weight loss is better to keep it off for a long time. Rapid weight loss comes back when you stop the regimen you got there. It is difficult to stick to a regimen that makes you lose that much weight in 2 months. Get into healthy eating habits. Remember u eat 2 live and live 2 eat.

Diet and exercise: Although, most folks are looking for a magic pill or similar advice, the mainstay is really burning calories. This can be achieved by adhering to a weight loss promoting diet. Stay away from high carb products (anything white or made out of white - eggs, sugar, starches, high fat dairy). Aerobic exercises (120-140 beats per minute) 30 minutes/time 5x/week should help as well.

Buy very little food: In order to lose weight, a person must use up more calories each day than he takes in. That means he will be hungry, but should only eat a little (not enough to get full). Losing 1-2 lbs a week is a good way to judge if the plan is working. Save money by drinking tap water and buying uncut veggies, whole wheat bread, and little or no sauces. Small fast-food items are ok (whopper jr. Without mayo).

Dietary Changes: Weight loss is all about calories in (diet) vs calories out (exercise). The safest way to lose weight would be to make some dietary changes that would reduce your current caloric intake (portion control, liquid calories, wise snacks) and also begin some moderate exercise program (walking daily 30-45 minutes). Weight loss takes time but is worth the effort for your health.
