Thousands of experts popping up every now and then make the weight loss even more complicated by their nonsense expertise. These quacks make things even more complicated when mixed with heavy advertising. Well; after stumbling through the thousands of cases; I have simply noted down some of the biggest points and the easiest one too. Please no fad diets, no crunches, no starvation. These are the as simple weight loss rules as it could be.<br />With thousands of diets, all with different rules, and conflicting advice on the best way to lose weight, it’s hard to know what works and what doesn’t. So regardless of the diet you’re trying, try these ten rules I follow and you’re sure to see the pounds fall off!<br />1. Choose low fat foods …<br />Simple weight loss rules <br /><ul><li> Know what you are eating and choose the one that is low on fat. So next time you visit to the shopping store; do care for the label. Read it carefully and analyze the amount of calorie it would eventually turn out to be. You Got the point; cut back on choco and cookies ; that’s the best way to cut down extra calories. </li></ul>Do your weekly shop online, and look up the fat content of what you are buying. If there are no fatty foods in the house, you won’t be able to eat them. I so cut back on cookies and chocolates after I stopped bringing this stuff home!<br />2. Pick healthy snacks …<br />Pick the healthier one<br />Substitute choco bars, cheese sticks and crisps for fruits, nuts, and other healthier stuffs. Just give it a week time; surely you would notice a considerable difference. Replace all the unhealthy stuffs with the natural and organic food stuffs. Always carry fruits with you so that you don’t hop on candy bar when you feel hungry.<br />Swap your chocolate bar and crisps for fruit, cheese sticks, and nuts, and you’ll notice the difference within days.

Stand up for 10 minutes in every hour …<br />Take a walk.<br />Walking boosts your metabolism; means better digestion. Make a routine of walk every morning; if not possible take a break during office hours and walk for few minutes. <br />Standing boosts your metabolism, so you’ll digest your food much faster.

It helps the body to kick start the metabolism thus allowing the body to burn calories at steady speed; allowing body to process food efficiently for energy not for fat. <br />Fruit and vegetables are often very filling, but low calorie, and so they will make sure you get to eat enough but without going over your recommended daily amount! Grapes, bananas, apples, oranges are my favorite and they are easy to take whenever you go too.<br />5. Give yourself a medium portion, and skip seconds …<br />It’s too easy to start with a small portion and pick at some more later, justifying it by how little you had earlier. Instead, eat a medium amount, and then stop. <br />10 Steps to Lose Weight Safely<br />1) Ask Your Doctor About Sensible Goals<br />Your doctor or other health workers can help you set sensible goals based on a proper weight for your height, build, and age. Men and very active women may need up to 2,500 calories daily. Other women and inactive men need only about 2,000 calories daily. A safe plan is to eat 300 to 500 fewer calories a day to lose 1 to 2 pounds a week.<br />2) Exercise 30 Minutes<br />Do at least 30 minutes of exercise, such as brisk walking, most days of the week. The idea is to use up more calories than you eat. You need to use up the day's calories and some of the calories stored in your body fat.<br />3) Eat in Moderation and Use Portion Control<br />Many Americans eat too much of even low-fat foods. Most restaurant portions are large enough for two or even three people. Check portion sizes on food labels and refer to the recommended portions on the Food Guide Pyramid. Some people find that measuring food for a week or two helps them learn healthy portion sizes.<br />4) Eat Less Fat and Sugar<br />This will help you cut calories. Fried foods and fatty desserts can quickly use up a day's calories. And these foods may not provide the other nutrients you need.<br />5) Eat More Fiber-Rich Foods<br />Fiber-rich foods are more filling than other foods--so people tend to eat less. Insoluble fiber also may hamper the absorption of calorie-dense dietary fat. In addition, studies have found that diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol and high in fiber are associated with a reduced risk of certain cancers, diabetes, digestive disorders, and heart disease. So, reaching for an apple instead of a bag of chips is a smart choice for someone trying to lose weight and stay healthy.<br />6) Tips for Cutting Calories and Fat<br /> * Eat plenty of vegetables, fruits, and grain products such as bread and rice.<br /> * Eat only small, single servings of foods high in fat or calories.<br /> * Eat less sugar and fewer sweets.<br /> * Drink less alcohol or no alcohol.<br /> * Choose foods whose labels say low, light or reduced to describe calories or fat.<br /> * Choose 1 percent or skim milk products and reduced fat cheeses.<br /> * Replace ice cream with fat-free frozen yogurt.<br /> * Replace sour cream with fat-free or low-fat plain yogurt.<br /> * Make sure fish, poultry, and meat are lean. Trim skin and fat.<br /> * Broil, roast, or steam foods.<br />7) Eat a Favorite Rich Food--Sometimes<br />That may keep you from craving it. But eat only a small amount. Make sure your other foods that day are low in fat and calories.<br />8) Eat a Wide Variety of Foods<br />Variety in the diet helps you get all the vitamins and other nutrients you need.<br />9) Watch Out for Promises of Quick and Easy Weight Loss<br />Fad diets aren't good because they often call for too much or too little of one type of food. As a result, you may not get important nutrients you need daily. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't true.<br />What About Diet Pills?<br />Diet pills you buy without a prescription won't make a big difference in how much you lose each week or how long you keep the weight off. If you do use them, read the label carefully. Because of possible side effects, such as elevated blood pressure, never take more than the listed dose. Also, be careful about taking cough or cold medicines at the same time as diet pills you buy without a prescription. These medicines may contain the same drug used in diet pills, or a similar drug with the same effects. If you take both products together, you may get too much of the same type drug. This can hurt you. Before taking a cough or cold medicine while using diet pills, ask your pharmacist if it's OK. Prescription diet pills may help some people. If you use them, follow the doctor's directions carefully.<br />10) Before Signing Up for a Weight Loss Program, Ask Questions<br />Does the company:<br /> * Explain possible health risks from weight loss?<br /> * Explain all costs?<br /> * Include weight control over a long period?<br /> * Have proof of success, not just praise by other people?<br /> * Give a clear, truthful statement of how you're going to lose weight, including how much and how fast?<br /> * Teach how to eat healthfully and exercise more?<br />
