If you're trying to lose weight, you'll have a much easier time if you exercise. Exercise keeps your body's metabolism from going into a deep dive, which is especially important for people as they age. The key is to find a physical activity that you really enjoy and go for it. Love to dance? Sign up for a dance class or the like. Love to ride a bike? Find a way to bike to work or to the store. Even those who don't love exercise - and there are a lot of us out there - can find ways to work physical movement into our lives in an enjoyable way.
A vital step in weight loss success is understanding portion sizes. Get in the habit of reading the nutrition label before you eat or drink anything. Although the carbs and calories may look fine at first glance, you will often be surprised to find that there are two, three or more servings in that one bag or bottle.
