in the morning if you can wake up pretty early, thats when you have the most energy! drink a bottle of water plug in your ipod or whatever and listen to music as you run! -- thats my first step.
Then you go home, eat a really healthy breakfast like fruit salad or something thats nutritonal.
After that you pretty much clean the house or whatever maybe take a walk while its cool, walk your pet dog, if you have one, i like to spend the morning doing that while its not so hot outside!
After that you wait a few hours being active as can be, then you relax a little and do some sit ups and lift weights to your own schedule... and your own statistics like weight height goals.. or whatever.. thats what i usually do! And then i like to stretch at the beginning of the day.. haha
chew gum - sugar free. It makes you not snack because if you chew it, you dont want to snack because then you will have to spit out your gum! works for me..
thats my trick tip - now read the losing weight 411
EXTRA: breathing for an hour burns 60 calories, so thats a little lift off your chest haha
and sleeping is the same rate :)
excersise at least 60 minutes a day if you can :)
hey, you know what? The most unexpensive weight loss thing to do, is to try to burn more calories than you eat, dont eat unhealthy like a 500 calorie diet! All that will do is make you sick, you NEED to be healthy to lose weight properly. Im trying to lose weight too! So basically here are some tips to speed up your metabolism: Drink 1-3 glasses of green tea a day
Try and eat Chilli peppers somehow, ((chilli DUH )) they help.
8 classes of water a day
the more active you are, the faster your metabolism will grow to be.
did you know that breathing for an hour burns 60 calories all on its own? And SLEEP is very important, try to go to sleep on time and get your ages average amount of sleep,. ask your doctor what a healthy weight for you is, and then after you have reached that goal do sit ups and crutches - among many other core excersises, Run to slim out, and make sure you burn more calories than you eat - had to repeat that!
Fruits and veggies are REALLY low in calories and FULL of nutrition. If you like Tacos? Ditch the hard shell, maybe try a taco salad.. without the shell of course! Lettuce with meat is good, but PLEASE try mixing it with turkey and beef so that it isnt all fat. Chicken salad is good, you want the protein but you dont want fried anything really, once in a while if fine but remember - YOU HAVE TO BURN OFF THOSE EXTRA CALORIES. Excersises excersise excersise. Dont over do it - dont starve yourself, be moderate and stay active. GOOGLE: 100 ways to burn 100 calories, their are some pretty cool things you can do!
Stay away from starchy and high carb foods - mostly white things. Bread is a bad, so try to stick to thin, HIGH in fiber, slices :)
you can google all the stuff and before you know it you will feel so good about it all and IM actually excited to start working out and all that, just because I know what it will do for me!
but if you must go with a diet, try weight watchers...
and the one diet ive tried that worked to get rid of that first 5-10 pounds was the 4 day wonder diet.. :) but its not very healthy and its only for four days: its up to you to keep your diet going!

Well you see here's the thing about losing weight, the fastest way to lose weight is to eat 6 healthy small meals a day. Not eat 1 or 2 meals a day that are ok. The only pills I'd honestly say work, but be aware of the side effects, are pills that have ephedra in them, because they speed up your heart rate and bring your body temperature up, so they actually help you lose weight, rather then do anything to your appetite. HOWEVER I do not recommend ephedra unless you know you have a healthy heart and read up on the stuff prior to taking it. I myself have taken ephedra and used the protein diet to keep in good shape. I do this because the body uses carbs as fuel, and whatever the body doesnt use as fuel, it stores as fat. So if I'm not eating any carbs, then the body has no way of storing any fat, as well as it has no way of getting fuel out of the food that your eating. So your body has to go into a state of survival by using the stored fat as fuel.
personally, i weighed 260lbs. I was one of the heaviest kids in high school,but now im 234lbs. the best method i used was the 4-quarter method(used in football)I did 40 sit-ups and crunches.
1)do 40 of each
2)do 30 of each
3)do 20 of each
4)do 10 of each
I did that for about 6-7 weeks i started off thinking it was helpless but then i started seeing results!! =)

try to have a little lean protein with each meal as protein tends to be more satisfying than carbs or fats

The old fashioned tried-and-true method: eating healthily and exercising regularly.
Fad diets are not the optimal food intake for your body because it very rarely accommodates all the nutrition you need. Portion control is key. Also, keeping fresh fruits and veggies (i.e. healthy choices) around is very helpful. When you have cravings, you will eat whatever you have which may be a carrot instead of potato chips.
Now I cannot dismiss the genetic component factored into your losing (or not losing) weight. If you are fighting genetics, you may have to be more vigilant than others to lose the weight.
Make sure you drink lots of water. Oftentimes the feeling of thirst is misconstrued to be feelings of hunger.
You may consider seeing a nutritionist or a doctor to ensure you do not have a medical issue that is preventing you from losing weight (such as a thyroid problem).
Please keep in mind that weight is not so important as feeling healthy and changing not just the mass of your body but also the shape. Pay attention to the way your clothes fit. It is better to lose less weight healthily than to lose more weight unhealthily and then gain it back again.
Committing yourself to a healthy lifestyle and not being fixated on losing a set amount of weight is the best way. Get active doing things that you love: swim, hike, cycle, yoga, take up a sport. Find a work out buddy or commute to work on a bicycle. Join a gym and get a personal trainer.
Do whatever works and is sustainable for you to be happiest and healthiest. If you find something that gets you active and love it, you'll continue to do it and you won't even notice you're losing weight.

I discovered the booklet to be very informative and convenient to learn. I've misplaced 17 kilos in 12 days, I'm simply worried that I'm wasting an excessive amount of weight, too speedily. I will admit I have not adopted the advisor precisely. I'm now not sticking flawlessly to the indexed meals and meal plans (however usually) and doing little or no undertaking, however the weight maintains flying off. It certainly works and if I'd adopted it precisely I suppose it could scare the dwelling daylights out of me considering that of the quantity that I'd lose. So thank you once more for the know-how. I've certainly not bought some thing like this earlier than considering that they're most likely filled with trash, however 3WD has been a best shock. Get began in these days!

Stop doing fad/trend diets.
They don't work.
All you have to do is watch what you eat and EXERCISE.
Eat about 1200-1500 calories per day. Exercise for about 30-60 minutes a day/lose 500 calories per day to lose 1 lb per week.
Any "quick" methods will have your weight bouncing back to the original and even more weight.
