    Metabolism boosting foods are discussed below.

    Losing 10 lbs a month is a good and safe target. Any faster weight loss is likely to be temporary only and in most cases you regain it all.

    Running, jogging, cycling, swimming, dancing, push ups, sit ups, squats, brisk walking and power walking all help for weight loss but dieting helps more.

    You can always eat negative calorie foods for weight loss and below is a list of negative calorie foods that will boost your metabolism.

    Negative Calorie Fruits:











    Negative Calorie Vegetables:




    cabbage (green)




    Chile peppers (hot)




    garden cress


    green beans







    These foods don't actually have negative calories but when you eat these foods raw or slightly cooked your body burns more calories digesting and processing them than what is in the food itself.

    For a healthy weight loss add some of these foods to your diet each day. Most of them are full of healthy nutrients such as fiber, antioxidants and enzymes as well as vitamins and minerals.

    You can see further details in a web search for "list of negative calorie foods".

    Most people would tell you diet and exercise more. Well I've got a way you can lose 40 pounds in 2 months. Want to know why! 1. Set Up Realistic Weight Loss Goals. Don't set a weird goal like 10 pound a day no. 2. Drink Plenty of Water. Drink about 6-8 glass of water per day. 3. Chew More Slowly when You Eat. If you eat 5 smaller a day you will accomplish your goal, but pleas don't eat three enormous meal. That would actual get you fatter. 4. Exercise at least 30 minuets per day. Pleas stay away from pills they could kill you, some pills could help but there is a few that do help. If you follow this correctly you will achieve your weight goal.

    The most effective way at losing weight while remaining in a healthy state is by exercising. Keep a stable diet and try to incorporate different types of exercise, such as running, into your day.

    Quit snacking in between meals.Do not fall for snacks in between meals. This is especially true for those who have to travel a lot. They feel that the only time they can get a bite to eat is snacks and junk food. The main problem with most snacks and junk food is that they are usually less filling and contain a lot of fat and calories. Just think about French fries tempting but terribly fattening.

    I've lost 5 kilos in my first week. It's my 10th day and I have included salad with some protein (eg. egg/ lean chicken) as you suggested. After 4 years of trying, the fat is finally coming off. It truly feels like magic!

    Hi 50 to 55% of your diet should be carbohydrates. It is a myth that you

    should try and avoid carbohydrates when you are on a diet. Rather the other way round I

    should say. Carbohydrates are a ready source of energy and so 50 to 55% of your diet

    should be carbohydrates.
