Well here are some ways which will help you stick to your decision of loosing weight.

Drink plenty of water

Drinking Water acts as a very important catalyst in losing weight.

Water acts as an appetite suppressant as it keeps your stomach full. Drinking plenty of water helps fend off dehydration which very often leads to false cravings thus activating your hunger and ultimately leading to weight gain.

Drinking plenty of water also helps your body metabolize stored fat by helping the kidneys flush out waste. When you don’t drink enough water the liver becomes less effective at metabolizing fat thus once again leading to weight gain.

Eat regularly

When you eat 5 times a day you will never feel hungry, make sure these meals are short meals .Don’t over eat in any of the meals. Learn portion size control!

Eat lots of fibre

Eating food rich in fibre helps bulk you up making you feel fuller for longer.Fibre is found only in plant foods. Our bodies cant digest food rich in fibre easily so the food simply goes through the body.

In addition, high fiber foods are typically low in calories and filling, so you are reducing your calorie intake overall.

Good fibre foods include: strawberries, apples, figs, chickpeas, potatoes, (with skins) broccoli, brown rice, beans, bran and nuts.

Consume more good fats
