Shed extra weight safely and effectively with these tips.

To complete this How-To you will need:

Exercise
Water
A high-fiber, low-calorie diet
Smaller portions
Breakfast

Warning: Always consult a physician before attempting to do any exercise or diet plan.

Step 1: Reduce calorie intake

Reduce your calorie intake. One pound of fat contains approximately 3,500 calories. To lose two pounds per week, you will have to burn or decrease your daily calorie intake by 1,000 calories.

Step 2: Exercise

Exercise for 30 minutes a day to burn calories and build muscle. The more muscle you have, the more calories you burn.

Step 3: Drink water

Drink plenty of cold water. It helps increase your metabolism. Six to eight glasses a day is recommended.

Tip: Avoid drinking high-calorie sugary beverages such as sodas, juice, sports drinks, and alcoholic beverages, which contribute to weight gain.

Step 4: Eat fruits and vegetables

Eat a low-calorie, low-fat diet. Choose foods high in fiber such as fruits, vegetables, and grains to help you feel full longer.

Step 5: Limit portions

Watch your food portions, especially with foods high in calories and fat.

Tip: When dining out, ask your server to portion half your meal in a to-go container so you're not tempted to overeat.

Step 6: Eat breakfast

Eat breakfast. It gives you energy, jumpstarts your metabolism, and helps keep you from overeating later in the day.
