Keep these in Mind:

Some other information you need to keep in mind. Weight on the scale is one thing but your body mass index number which is the amount of fat in your body. Your BMI should be 25 or lower. Also if your mid section is more than 40 inches you could be at risk heart disease and diabetes.

The More Activity the Better:

There is only one way to lose weight fast. Change how active you are. Take it slow if you are overweight or out of shape and increase the intensity over a couple of weeks. If you want to lose a pound a week you need to exercise about 60 minutes every day.

Stick With It:

Stay consistent with your workout routine. To help stay the course, tell other people about your weight loss goals or keep a diet and exercise journal. When you reach your goals, reward yourself so you have something to look forward to.

Add Protein:

By adding protein to your diet it will help suppress your appetite. This will help with those cravings you have through out the day and help you stick with your diet. Some examples of foods with protein are fish, eggs, beans and meats.

Other things to consider:

If you are just starting out or considerably overweight. Start out with cardio workouts like an exercise bike or elliptical machine. These are very low impact and will help with the pressure put on your Joints.

Stop drinking alcohol. The calories in alcohol really add up extremely fast. It could also contribute to some bad food choices.

Like all things when you first start a new exercise and diet program you need to consult with a doctor.
