    Easy Tips to Lose Weight

    Set Practical Goals: Short term changes are typically driven primarily by water. For most people it is hard to lose more than 1 to 2 pounds per week. Trying to lose too quickly can lead to serious health issues.

    Quick Rule of Thumb on Calories: Each pound is equivalent to 3,500 calories, so a 500 calorie daily deficit would lead to losing 1 pound per week.

    Beware of Sugar: Your body processes carbohydrates differently than fats and proteins. Eating foods with a high glycemic index (those heavy in sugar and other quick-acting refined carbohydrates) will cause your blood sugar to quickly spike then crash, making you hungry again sooner. Whereas fats and proteins are processed slower and give you a sense of satiety which lasts longer. Calorie counting doesn't work for most people because it requires too much time, effort, and discipline. Eating vegetables and foods with a higher fat and protein content and less carbohydrates means you shouldn't need to count calories, as your body won't tell you that you are hungry when you don't need food. There are literally sugar candies in grocerie stores which are marketed using the label "a fat free food!" The "low fat" healty food marketing gimmicks came out of large agribusinesses creating demand for their frankenfood products.

    Skipping & Binging: If you skip meals it often leads to binging later at night.
    Diet & Excercise: Most of what drives gain or loss is what you eat, but it is hard to function by cutting calories excessively. If you have reduced your calories to 1,200 per day, then rather than trying to reduce calories further it is better to try to increase calorie expenditure. Exercising will both make you feel better and make it easier to sleep at night.
