Not necessarily a lot, just stay active. 2) be aware of what you eat. Not a diet, per se, just awareness. 3) weigh often.

What to do if I have pcos i m planning for a baby is it safe to use con fiber tablets to loose weight?

Fiber?: Fiber is not a method to loose weight. Fiber is essential for good digestive health. Lose weight by eating a healthy well balanced diet with low calories and low fat content.

Losing weight: To lose weight, get ur resting metabolism rate done(weight loss centers do this). This determines the total number of calories you need to lose 1-2lbs/week. Decreasing 500cal/day will give you a 1lb wt loss in 1wk; drink water (1/2 your body weight), eat small meals about 150-200cal 2-4x/(depending on your metabolism rate) and 500cal/meal at night: lean protein/veggies; avoid carbs, . ...Read more

Resistance training is the key, you know boxing is primarily about smarts, speed & fitness. Very glad you're in the sport. ...Read more
