ways to lose weight

Exercise daily

Regular exercise through an array of activities like walking, biking, running, and aerobics can help in the maintenance of body weight. Weight training also helps in burning the extra fat. 

Count calories

Paying close attention to the amount of calories consumed in a whole day also helps. The best way is to make a calculation – multiply the ideal body weight by 10-12 calories. 

Curb cravings

Avoid overeating as it causes an unexpected increase in body weight. Have self-control. If you feel yourself slipping, remind your self of what you’ve achieved and how giving in to cravings can ruin the efforts. Tell yourself that the temptations are not worth it. 

Regular check on weight

Keep a regular check on your weight because it will help you stay aware of any changes in the body weight, thereby contributing to its maintenance. Weigh yourself regularly. When you get to see the pounds dropping, you are motivated to maintain it. 

Drink as much water as you can

Consuming 8 to 10 glasses of water a day is very effective in body functioning. Drink a glass of water before you eat; filling up your stomach with water will help suppress your appetite. An extra glass of water will keep you from over eating.
