Exercise usually entails losing weight, but it also causes you to gain muscle which is heavier than fat. Don’t be alarmed if the numbers on the scale aren’t decreasing. If your clothes fit better, that’s what really matters.

Make friends who are already healthy and in good shape to aid in your weight loss efforts. Use them to inspire and motivate you. They will be able to tell you the ways they keep weight off.

Take time off the phone and use it for some slimming exercises. As opposed to sitting down while talking, try to move around when you’re on the phone.

Try ridding your diet of red meat to lose weight. Red meats can contribute to the risk of developing heart disease because they are high in cholesterol and saturated fat. Pass on red meats, and instead enjoy lean meats, like chicken, turkey, salmon, or other types of fish.

By paying attention to your body, you can learn to tell the difference between true hunger and cravings caused by emotional needs or boredom. You might be surprised by how often you turn to food when your body does not actually require it.
