Sleep well

Don't sleep too long or too short because according to a study done by researchers at Laval University in Quebec, people who slept more than 8 hours and people who slept less than 6 hours were more likely to gain weight than people who slept the normal 7-to-8 hours.


Walk more

If you don't have time to go on an exercise program , buy a pedometer, and try to get in 10,000 steps a day to burn an extra 100 calories or more everyday which adds up to you losing over 10 pounds a year with minimal effort on your part.

Drink more water

Drinking more water lowers the amount of fat stored in the body. If you don't drink ample water then as a result, your kidneys may pass most of its unfinished work to your liver. One of your liver's functions is to help your body burn stored fat for energy and it can't perform that job fully if it has to do the kidney's job also. So it is always recommended to drink lots of water.

Cut out liquid calories

Liven up the taste of water by adding lemon, lime, cucumber or mint and eliminate soda and sugary drinks such as sweetened ice tea, sports drinks and alcoholic beverages. Such drinks will add lot of unwanted calories to your day. Also avoid full fat milk and go for low fat dairy.

Chew your food longer

Eat slowly. Your body doesn't realize that you've had enough to eat until several minutes after you've had it. You should chew everything you eat at least 8-12 times.
