Here are some practical tips you can use to get your weight down.
1. Eliminate the Enemy.
The single most important thing you can do is make sure that you do not have the following in your home; bread, potatoes, pasta, chips, savory snacks, cakes, cookies, sweets, candies, chocolates and sugary drinks. This sounds severe but if you can remove these items you remove the temptation and opportunity to consume them.
2. Eat Plenty.
Eat plenty of good foods vegetables, fruit, lean meats, cheese and eggs.
3. Eat Out Less.
It is possible to find good items on the menu, but generally it is much harder to resist temptation when eating out -- so eat at home more.
4. Leave the Car on the Driveway.
Try to walk or cycle for local outings.
5. Play Tennis.
Or any other vigorous exercise.
6. Do it With Your Partner.
It is much easier to change your lifestyle and remove tempting bad foods from the home if your family are all involved. Try to make it a joint effort.
