Are you getting ENOUGH calories? One of the biggest weight loss "killers" is caloric intake. Do not skip a meal. Your first meal of the day should be the biggest and healthiest. It is the meal that will jump start your metabolism and set the tone for the day.
If you are trying to lose weight, get in some exercise anytime you have the opportunity. Even if you have a busy work schedule, you may be able to get in a short walk during lunch or do a few sit-ups or lunges during your coffee break or on your way to the restroom.

If you are focusing on a healthy and permanent weight loss, you will need to institute long term alterations in the way you approach nutrition. Sure, you can lose weight quickly with a crash diet, but for most people the weight is quickly gained back when food intake is slightly increased. For long-lasting weight loss, eat meals that are smaller and well-balanced five to six times each day. Not only is this plan easier to follow than a restrictive diet, it also provides life-long results.
Consider working with a personal trainer when you are trying to lose weight. Whether you choose a one-time consultation or ongoing support, a trainer can help you create a regimen that works for your goals and your health. Long-term work with a trainer can also keep you engaged and motivated in your exercise routine.
