    Reduce Calorie Intake

    First thing you need to do is to decrease your daily caloric intake to form a caloric deficit. You can consult an online basal metabolic rate calculator. The free calculator will give you an approximate figure for the number of calories required without any exercise to sustain your current body mass. Now reduce your daily intake to about 500 to 1000 fewer calories than your basal metabolic rate.

    Chew your Food Longer

    To reduce the calories you get from your food and to assist in the digestion you should chew your food at least 8-12 times. Eat slowly and chew it more. Your body doesn't realize that you've had enough to eat until several minutes after you've had it. While eating quickly you may end up eating more than you needed.

    Try Some Kicks

    Water

    Drinking more water lowers the amount of fat stored in the body. If you don't drink ample water then as a result, your kidneys may pass most of its unfinished work to your liver. One of your liver's functions is to help your body burn stored fat for energy and it can't perform that job fully if it has to do the kidney's job also. So it is always recommended to drink lots of water when you are hoping to lose weight quickly.

    Drink Green Tea

    Studies show you can burn 35-to-43% more fat during the day when you drink 3-to-5 cups of green tea. If you do not have time to make your own green tea then you can simply take a green tea diet pill supplement.

    Walk More

    Walk more to lose more. If you don't have time to go on an exercise program , buy a pedometer, and try to get in 10,000 steps a day to burn an extra 100 calories or more everyday which adds up to you losing over 10 pounds a year with minimal effort on your part.

    Lift Weights

    You burn more calories when you lift heavier weights. You'll get a much greater after burn effect from lifting heavier weights because of the high intensity and your body's metabolism will burn more fat to help your body recover from your heavy weight training workout.
