A major key in weight loss is consuming fewer calories than you burn. Do this by omitting simple sugar products, like candy, cookies, and other sugar based products, and by eating fewer foods that contain white flour, like white bread, donuts, pizza, and bagels.

Instead, opt for whole grain foods, non processed foods, low sodium foods, lean proteins, green vegetables, and plenty of fresh fruits!

You can keep your metabolism HIGH by exercising more if you have the time. The more you move, the more you burn calories! The more calories you burn, the more weight you'll lose! That's only common sense!

40 Easy Ways to Burn Calories to Lose Weight

  • Protein has a high thermic effect in the digestive tract, which means it'll help you burn calories more efficiently.

  • Walk your dog more often if you own one. If not, walk your neighbors dog.
  • Do short sprints when you're running errands.
  • Increase weight resistance by using heavier weights.
  • Caffeine (in coffee and tea) can increase the rate at which you burn calories, according to Susan B. Roberts, author of The “I” Diet.
