    Hi CollegeGirl

    In my opinion, no weight loss tips are truly successful on their own. Lots of water is not necessarily a good way, because how much water a person needs depends on the BMI of the person. 6 small meals maybe hard at times, especially when you are stuck at school or office and have no chance to eat, and then you need to eat more when you have the chance. Well, dieting is a good way to lose weight, but then it is hard to stick to a diet. For example, something like this:


    2 egg, low fat Cheddar cheese omelette - 320 calories

    2 slices wholemeal toast with thin smear butter - 200 calories

    Large slice melon - 47 calories


    Spicy Turkey Salad recipe - 304 calories


    Muesli or honey nut Health Bar "Sainsbury" - 180 calories


    Baked potato with 100g "Heinz" baked beans &/or Cottage cheese if desired - 300 - 400 calories (350 average)

    Large helping salad fruits &/or vegetables - 100 calories

    Another weight loss tip is to do interval and turbulence exercise.

    Turbulence Training is a fresh plan that requires finishing three 45-minute exercise sessions each week with marginal equipment. It is an increasingly trend-setting fitness plan with the intention of helping you in the reduction of weight.

    Interval training is the fitness world’s equivalent of a visit to the in-laws. The shorter and more intense the visit, the better. An interval is a short period of exercise performed at a given intensity for a specific length of time. Each interval is separated from the next interval by a short rest or lighter activity. There are no strict rules on how long or how intense the interval must be, however, changing the interval length or intensity changes the way your body works and responds to exercise.

    But people have a short willpower. It may be strong at the beginning but will eventually fade as time goes on- as they realize that going on a diet is not actually as easy as they think it is. Of course, the strength of willpower differs from one person to another. This is the reason why there are people who can actually maintain a diet and exercise program for 1 year and there are people who can only maintain it for few months. Nonetheless, willpower is a big factor that dictates someone whether to continue losing weight or not.

    And in my opinion, besides sticking to a diet and exercise plan, it is the ultimate willpower to stop yourself from overeating that is the #1 tip to lose weight. But that is the hardest part if you are accustomed to eating lots of food even though your body does not need it. It is partly because of the delicious taste of the food causing a craving for more. There are certain ways to fight this craving ad I found one that maybe helpful. It is a type of chocolate that can actually suppress your appetite. It will can provide Good Energy that promotes a healthy weight by providing energy while burning fat. And it helps suppress cravings for sugary snacks.

    Good luck!

    PS: Information on the Special Chocolate that I mentioned can be found on the website in the source box. Recently, they are giving away a one month free trial.

    I have been through it all and know what's it about. The main thing is to stick in there. You can't be an addict to food and never exercise if you want to live a healthy life and keep the weight off. I've worked out, done every diet, and all types of classes.

    Nothing works, besides dedication and intelligence towards the subject of losing weight.

    First, depending on how much weight you need to lose, your diet is the first concern. You can't eat 10,000 calories a day and expect the weight to come off, even if you are exercising a lot. Which brings us to the next thing. Duh, Exercising...

    This is a must especially if you need to a lot of weight. Get at least 30 mins of some good hardcore exercising. Do some cardio, in the long run, it's good for the heart.

    However, I find the most hardest part of losing weight/keeping it off, in my diet. It's so hard to keep your fingers out of the cookie jar or those chocolate goodies. I've found a great addition to help any one out, it's a natural weight loss supplement called Proactol. Now don't get all crazy on me and say diet pills don't work. That is true, but not in this case. This one isn't meant to burn pounds while you sit on the couch. It's an appetite suppressant, along with being a fat binder. I saved money on the pills at theweightlossplace .com along with getting some good info. It basically makes those fingers not go towards the cookie jar. For me it's the best pill I've tried and I've tried cupboards full. Now this doesn't mean you have to follow my foot steps but I've successfully lost roughly 70 pounds and keeping it off til this day.

    Well good luck and remember what I said, Dedicate.

    [Well]I Once Was Fat But Now Iam Very Fit With A Very Tight 8 PAck[But]I Would Say Go To The Gym 4 Days Out of the Week[MAny]Ppl Say 3 out of the week!

    I would PAy Attention To Food That Are High In Fiber(&]Caluim

    Like Rassberries Spaghetti,whole[or]Split peas Cooked Be very creative with you food watch out for salt (&] Never fry!!

    Always Bake Like BAke Chicken Is Great,Safe,And Healthy(&]the best thing about it is It do not contain [grease]!!

    If wantting to loose fat fast i would suggest that

    Drink More Water Every Day. Many places suggest 8 cups (2L) of water a day. It also depends on your weight (1L/20kg would be good, more if it's hot or you're ill). It sounds like an absurd amount of water, but actually, you can drink tea without sugar to make up some of the quota. In fact tea, especially green tea, rev up your "metabolism" (actually cause a temporary increase in calories burned).

    also 1.lift weights or do cardio<,>2.Keep Metabolism Steady.3.Eat Smaller Dinners

    Have you watched paul mckenna, he says eat slowly and concentrate on the food and chew about 30 times until its liquid, drink about 1-2 liter of water every day to get rid of toxins inside and if you craving for junk food just drink lots of water or fruit. Plus exercise until you're breathless.
