10 Easy Ways To Lose Weight

February 15th, 2010 · 4 Comments ·


Many people have long list of “To Do” items in their resolution before new year. One of the popular to-do things will be losing weight. However, three to four months later, most have either forgot about it or totally given up due to lack of motivation.

It is not too late to lose weight. No doubt, diet plan, workout schedule and joining a gym all are good plans. But, if they only look good on paper, they are still useless if they are so overwhelming that you lose steam after two days. I will share with you some of the easy ways which you can do daily to lose weight.

  1. If you drink tea or sugar, cut down the sugar in it.
  2. Instead of drinking soda, drink water. If water is too plain, add a slice of lemon into it.
  3. Keep the fruit bowl topped up and put it on your desk, in front of TV or any place which you access often.

  5. Have a big salad as one of the dishes in your evening meal, three times a week.
  6. Reduce the size of your dinner plate. The normal size is 10 to 14 inches in diameter. Use 7 to 9 inches diameter plate instead. The less food the plate can take, the less you will eat.
  7. Eat slow. Put your fork and spoon aside every two bites. Stop and sip water frequently. If you eat slowly enough, your brain will catch up to tell you that you are no longer in need of food. Eating too fast may make you eat past fullness.
  8. Replace the fruit flavor yogurt with plain yogurt. If you miss the flavor, add the real fruit and add it into the plain yogurt.
  9. Walk the kids to school. Walk for lunch. Bring your dog for a walk at least 3 times a week. Take the stairs instead of lift or elevator. Get up and walk around the office or your home for five minutes at least every two hours. Get a pedometer and walk more.


  10. Brush you teeth immediately after lunch and dinner. Clean and minty freshness will tell your brain that mealtime is over.
  11. Wash the car yourself once a week. Don’t have car, wash the floor, bathroom tile or windows at home.
  12. Watch 30 minutes less of television program daily.

Now, pick any of the 3 things above and do them consistently for three months. All the activities are small changes. The reason I want you to keep it for 3 months because once you can do it, it will become a habit automatically.

After 3 months, come back and tell me how things going on your end. I would like to hear from you.

    Very nice and informative article, let me share my fitness story with dear readers. I used to be very fit and athlete, but with the passage of time I became lazy and developed a habit of eating and sleeping along with no exercise. Which deposited around 25 – 30 Kilo of fat into my stomach, face, legs and all over my body? Everyday when I looked in the mirror I had thought today I will start exercising, which was clearly a false promising to myself, again with the passage of time I realized now enough is enough I have to do something to get rid of this fat. So I stepped on to the thread mill and started running 40 Minutes everyday at 9 Miles per hour. Right after finishing a marathon every day I then take the free weight and start building my shoulders and biceps, chest and etc. 3 Days continues exercise and 2 days rest which continued over the period of 3 months and I have now lost 22 Kilo of fat and I have started to look young and energetic once again. I recommend everyone who is facing the same symptoms of fatness try to get fit, it is really easy and not difficult at all. Thank you

    You only made one mistake. Three months might make a habit, but you will see NO reasonable weight loss. Remember, small changes = small results.

    A great post, indeed. Though the market is flooded with magic diet pills and diet plans, I believe that one should lose way in a healthy way. Opt for a diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, low-fat milk products, fatty fish such as salmon and tuna. In addition, exercise regularly and have good sleep. All these will not only help you to lose weight, but also help you in healthy living.
