Today I would like to give some tips about how to lose weight. Firstly, you must keep your own personal food diary and determine your weight loss goals upfront. It is important that you determine a healthy weight for you age and height. Sometimes people want to lose weight to become very thin; this is not good for your health, so before you start ensure you know what are your weight loss goals. People who keep food diaries, according to a study published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, lose an average of 2.
75 kg more than people who don’t keep a record of everything that they eat. So force yourself to write down the good, the bad and the ugly. Then, you must avoid skipping meals. The same study found that people who ate at least 3 meals per day lost more weight than people who didn’t.

You also must to eat vegetables for nutrition and to help you fill up more quickly. When you make your lunch or dinner plate contain at least 50 percent vegetables, you can have other richer dishes on your plate in smaller portions.
That’s all I want to talk about.
