    If you are going to start a weight loss program, there are some points to consider.

    One should always keep in mind that weight loss takes time and is not going to happen overnight. It requires a change in eating habits. It doesn't mean that weight loss requires eating less. It means you have to keep an eye on the calories you are taking and how much your physical activity and other works help them to burn.

    Weight Loss Tips

    [1.] Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. In provides hydration to your body and help you feel full.

    [2.] Eat fruits and vegetables rich in fibers, vitamins and antioxidants. They fill up your stomach fast and are also low in calories and help to keep your calorie count low.

    [3.] Taking small frequent meals help to balance calorie intake throughout the day, instead of eating 3 big meals, try to eat 5 - 6 smaller meals throughout the day.

    [4.] Walk 20-30 minutes daily after your last meal. These will help you to speed your metabolism up before the food has a chance to get settled in and lower your body fat storage.

    [5.] Whenever you feel laziness, take several deep breaths and try to do something creative to keep yourself busy.

    [6.] When you slip up on your diet or weight loss program, pick yourself back up immediately and make a renewed commitment to your weight loss goals.

    [7.] Cardio exercises are the real secret to lose body fat. Cardio Exercises are the only ones proven to burn calories at a sustained rate and hence qualify to be the best Weight Loss Exercises ever.

    Most of the above are sound, but I need to post a rider to hint no. 1.

    Drinking 8 glasses of water per day has been suggested as a health and weight loss tip for a long time, but it was never based on proper empirical scientific evidence. It began as someone's 'good idea' and got absorbed into popular culture as an urban myth.

    There are numerous cultures where the amount of water drunk is way less than that, and the people are normally very trim and healthy. The only requirement re drinking is to drink when thirsty. Sometimes it is possible to mistake thirst for hunger, so it may be a good idea to have a drink when you think you are hungry and see if the hunger sensation goes away. Apart from that, don't worry about it. If you are thirsty, drink. If you are not, don't.

    Agreed. Moreover drinking excessive water may throw salt out of balance, so you crave junk food.
