I need to lose some weight?

See Doctor first... Helpful diets include natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and leafy lettuce (with little or no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits contain natural sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, regardless of where it comes from.

Then, cut down on the bedtime goodies, especially sweets and carbs. On your way! Read more...

Unfortunately . Unfortunately there are no magic pills to lose weight. If there was everyone would be on it. Diet and exercise are still the best course of action. Plastic surgeries such as liposuction and tummy tucks (witch hazel) are effective for body contouring but not very good at weight loss. The amount of skin or fat removed usually account for a lot of weight loss and if there hasn't been a change of lifestyle (diet and exercise again) you will most likely regain most of it. For people who are significantly overweight and have associated medical problems, weight loss surgery such as a gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy offer very effective solutions. Read more...
Low carb diet. I've found a low carb (no starch or sugar) ketogenic diet containing about 60+ grams is protein and below 40 grams of carbohydrate along with cardio exercise and yoga the most effective for weight, fat and girth loss.
