    Be More Active

    Be creative and add some extra physical activity to your daily routine. Adding a little physical activity to your daily routine will help you to start losing weight quicker than you can imagine. All the extra calories you burn by doing these little activities add up to you losing more weight.

    Walk More

    Buy a pedometer and try to walk 10,000 steps a day to burn an extra 100 calories or more. This adds up to losing over 10 pounds a year with minimal effort on your part.

  • 5

    Drink More Water

    It is always recommended that you drink lots of water to have a healthy body. Drinking more water lowers the amount of fat stored in the body. If you don't drink ample water, your kidneys may pass most of its unfinished work to the 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.

    Sleep Well

    According to a study done by researchers at Laval University in Quebec, people who slept more than 8 hours and those who slept less than 6 hours were more likely to gain weight than people who slept the normal 7 to 8 hours. Make sure you get the right amount of sleep and don't sleep for too long or too short a while.

    Have Water or Vegetable Juice before Meals

    Drinking a glass of water or vegetable juice before your meals will suppress your appetite so you will not eat that much and can lose weight fast.

     

  • 8

    Chew your Food Longer

    You should chew everything you eat at least 8-12 times. Eat slowly. Your body doesn't realize that you've had enough to eat until several minutes after you've had it.

    Lift Heavier Weights to Burn Fat Faster

    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. Also, your body's metabolism will burn more fat to help your body recover from heavy weight training.

    Don't Sit Down for More than 4 Hours

    Try standing up for at least 10 minutes within every 4 hours. According to researchers at Missouri University, sitting down or being virtually inactive for longer than 4 hours slows down your metabolism, making it easier for you to store fat.
