Drop that bag of your favourite potato chips, lose the pizza parlour’s number and forget those crazy hot wings. You need to eat healthy food to lose weight. Cut the extra fat and eat more whole grains. Adding fruits and vegetables to the diet will also help in feeling full without packing all those calories.

Watch the Calories
Often we overeat without realising it. While eating something, always refer to the packaging for nutritional data. Sometimes your favourite snack is bursting with calories without you being aware of it. Guidelines for daily consumption of calories varies between 2000 and 2500 in various countries, make sure that you consume around 500 calories less than what is recommended.

Walk is underrated. You can lose an extra 250 calories per hour with the help of brisk walk. Ideally walk at least for an hour though more is better. The more you walk, the more you lose and the healthier you get.

Along with walk, do some exercises as well. If you have strong knees, you can do sets of 20’s in jumping jacks several times a day. You do not need to do heavy exercise but half an hour a day can keep that metabolism going all day. Try to do light exercises even at work and do not sit on your chair for more than half an hour at a time as it slows down your metabolism.
