Do not skip meals.

Try to portion your food every meals instead.  Eat snacks in between meals too.  Eating small portions is the healthy way to lose weight.  If you have a sweet tooth, you don’t have to give up cakes and chocolates entirely.  Just eat small portions and pair them with fruits during snack time.  Eat dark chocolate instead of white or milk chocolate.  The secret is in moderation not in depravation.

Avoid midnight snacking.

Stock your pantry with healthy options.

Enroll in a gym

Enroll in a gym and get the help of a gym instructor to guide you on the right workout for your goals.

It is also important to have a professional assess your body type so they can advise you on the right workout regimen for you.  An hour a day 3 times a week should be a good start.  As you go along, this can be increased.

If working out in a gym is not your scene, jogging in your neighborhood every morning is a good workout.  If you run at least 30 minutes daily or at least 3 times a week coupled with a healthy diet, you should be able to lose those extra pounds in no time.

Walk as much as you can.

Walking does not take as much pressure as jogging or running.  You can integrate walking into your daily routine like going to the park with the kids or walking the dogs or going to the grocery.  Walking can be fun too.  You can hardly notice that you are sweating out the fats away when you are enjoying nice scenery or chatting with your mate.  Another good thing about walking is that you get to control your pace.  You can choose to go fast or take a leisurely walk around the neighborhood.  You just have to be consistent on the routine for it to be effective.

Enroll in a dance class or a group aerobics class.

Dancing is a fun way to burn calories.  It is also fun when you are with a group.  It makes the workout more bearable when you are surrounded with people who share the same interests and goals.  Being in a class is also good because you get to have a teacher who has the expertise that guide you on the right moves to burn the fats away.

Ditch the elevator and opt for the stairs.

Taking the stairs going up and down your apartment building or office will burn enough calories just as you burn calories when walking, maybe even more.

Weight loss can be achieved by a healthy diet plus exercise.  There is no secret formula or magic pill.  All it takes is healthy dose of fresh fruits and vegetables plus some physical activities.
