There are numerous fad diets that you can follow to lose pounds quickly. Unfortunately, most of them will leave you feeling hungry and deprived. Instead, take small steps to change your food and activity habits by tweaking your food choices and lifestyle habits.
Remember, one pound of fat is equal to 3,500 calories. By eliminating 500 calories a day through reducing food calories and increasing activity, you can lose about a pound a week. If you only need to maintain your current weight, shaving 100 calories a day is enough to avoid the extra 1-2 pounds most adults gain each year. By keeping the weight off permanently you will achieve improved health and look great. Try following these simple strategies to help lose weight without dieting.
