7 Simple Weight Loss Tips to Lose Weight Fast

by : Terry Edwards

Without a doubt, dieting and losing weight can be among the toughest things to do in life. If you have been trying to lose weight and are having a difficult time with it, try some of these simple weight loss tips.

1. Make a Diet Journal - Write down everything you eat throughout the day no matter how small it is. This will help you stay on your diet in the long run. You can also use your journal to track your weight loss, your feelings and so much more. You can really get creative here. The main point is to write it down. It will keep you involved and motivated.

2. Drink More Water - I know this diet tips is so basic, but it is because it flat out works. 6-8 glasses of water every day may sound like a lot, but spread out over the course of the day it isn't. Drinking water before meals will also make you seem fuller and prevent you from overeating.

3. Don't Weight Yourself Every Day - Your weight naturally fluctuates day-to-day. Weighting yourself daily can lead to frustration and giving up on days you see no success. Instead, weigh yourself once a week at the same time, like Monday at 7:00am for example.

4. Have A Goal - Set a goal for yourself of where you ultimately want to be at. Now, break the goal down into reasonably obtainable chunks. For example, your goal is to lose 25 pounds in the next 3 months. Break that down into 5 pounds every 2-3 weeks. This makes it much easier to stay on your diet and achieve success when you work with smaller numbers.

5. Never Grocery Shop When Hungry - One of the biggest no-no's there is. You'll only find yourself getting all sorts of foods you know you shouldn't be eating. We've all been guilty of it before, but be sure you grocery shop after you eat.

6. Close The Kitchen - Late evening eating or snacking is a huge cause of weight gain. You eat, go to bed, and the food just sits in yours stomach and turns to fat. Set a time that the kitchen is closed and then stick to it. This tip helped me to lose 5 pounds in 10 days just on its own.

7. Eat At The Table - Always eat at the dining room or kitchen table. Avoid eating in front of the TV at all costs. You get lost watching a show and you just keep eating and eating.

These are just a few simple tips to help you lose weight fast and achieve success with your diet plan. They have certainly helped me achieve results, which I show you on my blog. Put them into practice and I know they will help you too.
