How to lose weight

By exercising daily you increase your metabolism, you keep your heart healthy and you increase your chances of reducing your weight.
Several studies show that the amount of food you eat depends on the size of your plates. The bigger the plate the more food you will eat. There is a psychological connection between the size of the plate and the amount of food you eat regardless of how hungry you are.
Reducing your food servings will help you lose weight but being selective on the foods you eat will help you lose weight faster.
Research indicates that people who sleep less than 7 hours per day tend to accumulate more weight than people who sleep normally. There is a scientific logic behind this and has to do with hormones released during sleep.

Many people tend to completely abandon their favorite foods from their diet especially when the foods carry a lot of calories. This is not recommended because eventually you will give up and eat those foods in larger quantities. You better keep them in your diet and have them as a 'reward' for achieving your weight loss goals.
They say that 'Prevention is always the best cure', and this is true for weight loss as well. Instead of being tempted you better save yourself from the trouble and remove any junk food, sweets, full fat foods and drinks from your kitchen and fridge. Instead replace those foods with fresh fruits and vegetables.
