1. Never skip breakfast. Studies have shown that people that skip breakfast eat larger portions and go in to metabolic starvation. Start the day right with enough protein such as eggs.

2. Drink enough water. The popular W8MD program advocates drinking at least 8 glasses of water or low calorie liquids a day.

3. Take a break in the middle of the meal and wait for 5 minutes before you resume your food. This allows the body’s internal signaling systems to tell your brain to suppress the appetite and increase satiety.

4. Eat lower glycemic load foods. Use this free W8MD glycemic index chart with additional links to understand the glycemic index of foods.

5. Eat frequent small meals preventively.  Use a smaller plate, weigh portions on a scale, or check the Nutrition Facts label for details about serving sizes.

6. Make sure you supply the body with constant supply of protein. If you are average sized person, your body needs about 120 grams of protein a day. This equates to about 30 grams of protein a meal. Most people do not get much protein especially with breakfast as they start with cereals, bagels, toast or other low protein, high carbohydrate type of meals leading to negative nitrogen balance throughout the day leading to muscle wasting.

7. Walk 30 minutes a day. Try to build exercise into your daily life. Go for a family walk, do some gardening, play a pickup game of sports, go to a dance club with your friends, go swimming, take the stairs, or walk to the grocery store or walk in mall.

8. Sleep at least 7-8 hours nightly. If you snore, or feel tired during day, you may want to get checked out for underlying sleep problems such as sleep apnea which can contribute to weight gain.

9. Start by understanding how many calories your body needs for not losing or gaining weight. If you cut down your calories by 500 calories per day for one week, you are expected to lose about 1 pound in a week.

10. Check if your weight gain is related to insulin resistance by using this free W8MD tool and correct it to lose weight and reduce the risk of diabetes.

11. Eat more varied and colorful foods like the colors in a rain bow. Fill half of your plate with fruits and veggies by choosing foods with vibrant colors that are packed with fiber, minerals, and vitamins. Make half of your plate fruits and veggies.

Examples of colored vegetables and Fruits

◾Red: bell peppers, cherries, cranberries, onions, red beets, strawberries, tomatoes, watermelon

◾Green: avocado, broccoli, cabbage, cucumber, dark lettuce, grapes, honeydew, kale, kiwi, spinach, zucchini

◾Orange and yellow: apricots, bananas, carrots, mangoes, oranges, peaches, squash, sweet potatoes

◾Blue and purple: blackberries, blueberries, grapes, plums, purple cabbage, purple carrots, purple potatoes.

12. Reduce your portion sizes. Find ways to limit the calories in your favorite foods. For example, you can bake foods rather than frying them. Use low-fat milk in place of cream. When trying to lose weight, you can still eat your favorite foods as part of a healthy eating plan. But you must watch the total number of calories that you eat. Combined, these habits may be a safe, healthy way to lose weight and keep it off.

If your goal is to lose weight safely, and effectively, without spending a lot of money out of pocket, you may want to consider W8MD services.
