Losing weight is a goal for millions of people all over the world. The diet and fitness industry is a multi-million dollar money-maker that doesn’t always have your best interests at heart. I will give you 7 weight loss tips that you can implement for free – including the number one secret that can turn your body into a fat-burning machine!

1. You don’t always have to eat less to lose weight. When we think of a “diet” we almost always picture a strict regime of tiny portions and tasteless food, coupled with hunger pains. If you eat the right foods – foods which can be very tasty as well as nutritious – you can eat more than enough to keep you satisfied all day.

2. You don’t have to become a gym bunny to lose weight. The alternative to eating less has always been seen as huge amounts of exercise. It’s absolutely NOT necessary to join a gym, employ a personal trainer, or buy expensive equipment or DVDs in order to get your body on the road to weight loss.

3. The science to losing weight is all about calories in versus calories out. This simple concept has been confused and garbled by fad diets and programs which want you to count points, carbs, GI, red and green days, and goodness knows what else. The science is really very simple: burn more calories than you eat, and you will lose weight.

4. Most diets and plans for losing weight are designed so that everyone follows the same “program”. But you’re an individual, and what works for Julie next door may not work for you. Your weight loss will depend on you finding out your personal calorie need level, and planning your food to that level.

5. If you want to successfully lose weight, you MUST plan your meals. Eating “off plan” (that is – eating something naughty instead of something healthy) often happens when we fail to plan. Travelling, eating with friends, eating while at work, special ocassions – all these situations and more can trip you up. Good planning will enable you to overcome these situations. Remember, “if you fail to plan – you plan to fail!”
