The first thing you should do, is to avoid getting stressed about losing weight. If you allow this thought to take over your life, then you are bound to end up gaining weight rather than actually losing it.
Get rid of all the sugary and fatty foods in your diet. You need to do this, to eliminate the fat content in your body. Once you have cut down on these foods, your body will start to wear away at the existing fat. However, in order to overcome this you need to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.
Remember to drink as much water as you can, since it will help you keep your stomach full, while keeping you hydrated as well.
Always eat your food slowly, spending more time chewing it. When you eat food quickly, your body can’t tell you timely when its full, and this almost always leads to over eating.
Remember to work out, while focusing on cardio. Lifting heavy weights is not always the answer. Work out with moderately heavy weights, but focus on doing ample repetitions in each set. At the same time, you should be focused on doing cardio. The more you sweat, the more fat you burn, and the faster you get closer to your goal of getting lean.
Once you end up losing all the weight you wanted to, remember to maintain your body weight. Stick to your plan and follow it for as long as you can.
