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.
  • Did you know that simply taking Vitamin D helps? In a study in the British Journal of Nutrition they found that women who were deficient lost weight at a slower pace than women who weren't.
  • Spend more time outside to help you get moving!
  • 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.
  • Sleeping less than four hours per night over an extended period of time slows metabolism down. Most experts today recommend between seven and nine hours of sleep instead.

  • Use your hands more! Do more daily tasks around the house (doing dishes, cleaning floors, organizing closets) to get you moving more and exercises your brain too boot!

  • Use medium-chain fatty acid oils when you cook, like coconut oil to burn calories and lose more body fat.
  • Snacking in the car is a good way to pack on the pounds. Why? Its harder to pay attention to the amount of food you're really consuming when you're concentrating on other things.
  • Add 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper to your food daily.
