here is a list of good things to do to help loose weight;
1, try to consume less than 1000 calories per day
2, never be hungry, (it will encourage you to eat something unhealthy) so keep lots of fruit near.
3, always eat breakfast, if you measure 40grams of a sensible cerial and add skimmed milk it should come to only 150 cals aprox. the healthiest meal of the day.
4. what ever you choose to have for dinner, halve it and fill the space with salad, (if you can't stand up long enough to prepare it, you can buy it pre-made)
5, steaming food is very healthy, microwave a good second, just always make sure any oil coming out the food has somewhere to go/drain rather than going back into the food.
6, consuming extra fiber is great. the less time food is in the body, the less fat can be absorbed.
7, try to drink extra fluids. water and diet fizzy is great (but fresh fruit juice has a suprising amount of calories), drinking more fluid will help the fiber work and help to stop you feeling hungry.
8, try to keep yourself busy. if you have nothing to do you will spend all your time thinking about the food you shouldn't eat.
everything above has been tried and tested. and when my boyfriend followed all those tips, he lost 30lbs in 9 weeks.
i wish you all the best. good luck.
