Losing weight is all about motivation. If I were you, I will do exercise daily and eat a well balanced diet. You can also undergo sugar free diet. You will just replace your sugar consumption with natural sweeteners. I personally use this weight losing process and it actually works. I lose 10 pounds now. By the way the name of the natural sweetener that I used is natvia.

By looking the other healthy and active people you can be motivated for the weight loss.
You can start a regular exercise plan, eat an effective and healthy diet, play some sports, participate in some physical activities for your weight control purposes.

Initial weight loss is largely due to loss of water, and you need to drink an adequate amount of water in order to avoid dehydration. The process of burning calories requires an adequate supply of water in order to function efficiently; dehydration slows down the fat-burning process. Burning calories creates toxins (think of the exhaust coming out of your car), and water plays a vital role in flushing them out of your body. Dehydration causes a reduction in blood volume; a reduction in blood volume causes a reduction in the supply of oxygen to your muscles; and a reduction in the supply of oxygen to your muscles can make you feel tired. Water helps maintain muscle tone by assisting muscles in their ability to contract, and it lubricates your joints. Proper hydration can help reduce muscle and joint soreness when exercising. A healthy (weight loss) diet includes a good amount of fiber. But while fiber is normally helpful to your digestive system, without adequate fluids it can cause constipation instead of helping to eliminate it. Drinking water with a meal may make you feel full sooner and therefore satisfied eating less. Note, however, that drinking water alone may not have this effect. In order to feel satiated (not hungry), our bodies need bulk, calories and nutrients.so please drink clean and filtered water and to know about water filtration click here: - WATER FILTER REVIEWS AND INFORMATION

With reference to the thread title, I disagree. To be pedantic, the thread title should be losing fat mass, not weight. I have gained weight in the last 6 months, but I'm not complaining as I've put on pounds of muscle and body fat at an all time low. You really have to be precise here, and I'd tell you why.

People associate losing weight with restriction, eating less, and other fads that the body easily adapts to, like "training" for a marathon, zumba, or playing a little badminton here and there. The idea is that, whatever tips the scale downwards, works. It is not so simple, and the weight you initially lose is typically not the type of weight you want to lose. Even in the long term, all these cardio activities fall flat on effectiveness.

Losing weight without understanding what is lost, and what side effects that might have on health is just like missing the forest for a tree. Easily remedied by reading up on articles that actually quote from scientific journals that are peer reviewed, but of course, most people who throw the term lose weight around loosely are usually too lazy to read up.

The key phrase is gaining a "healthier" body composition. That is at the very least, losing body fat without any decrease in fat free mass. For people like myself, I take it further to gaining as much muscle mass as I like/can.

So stop people in their tracks when they talk about losing weight, because they need to be clear what they are talking about. That might still not prevent them from embarking on unsustainable and unscalable "training", which is no better than a fad they would run out of steam for within a year.

Losing weight seems like a pretty easy concept, when you think about it. You start eating less, exercise more and the weight is supposed to come off.
Keep in mind, Weight loss is such a complex process, the only way we can really wrap our heads around it is to drill it down into a bunch of numbers.

You already know these numbers, probably as well as any weight loss expert: You know that, to lose one pond fat, you have to burn about 3500 calories over and above what you already burn each day.

You don't really want to burn 3500 calories in one day, but rather to cut that down into daily calorie deficits, say cutting 500 calories a day with a combination of diet and exercise.

So, don't think it is fun and if you don't know what actually you are doing then you may create more harm to your body!
