Free Fast Weight Loss Tips

These free tips will help you to lose weight fast.

  • Drink plenty of water. Make a habit of taking a drink of water on a regular basis. Also make sure that you drink a glass of water at least 30 minutes before a meal.

  • Don't skip meals. Tempting as it is, your body is likely to interpret regular missed meals as a move towards starvation.

  • Eat little and often. But follow the next two rules as well, otherwise you're likely to come unstuck.

  • Eat when you are hungry. Don't wait until the sound of your stomach rumbling wakes up the whole neighborhood. Just recognize when you feel hungry and eat something.

  • Don't eat when you're not hungry! You likely eat out of habit. Just because it's normally time for a meal doesn't mean you are hungry.

  • Stop eating when you're full. Notice when your body says "that's enough" and stop eating. Even if there is food left on your plate. It's OK to leave food on your plate. Next time, consider a smaller portion. But this time, feel happy to leave some food if you're no longer hungry.

  • Don't watch television or read while you are eating. Savor the taste of the food. Eat consciously rather than on auto-pilot. You'll enjoy your food more when you start to taste your food again.

  • Read the labels. Sugar contains "empty" calories but is often hidden on food labels. Watch for corn syrup, glucose, fructose, lactose, honey, molasses as well as plain ordinary sugar. Be especially wary of low fat foods - they often more than make up for the lack of fat by increasing the sugar content.

  • Above all, remember that it's OK to slip from your diet once in a while. Just because you eat badly occasionally doesn't mean that your whole diet plan was a waste of time.
