8 Best Ways to Lose Weight and Keep It Off

Set a clear goal

A clear goal is a goal anyone in the world can measure and understand. Write out your goal and keep it posted somewhere as a reminder when you want to give up.

Drink the right fluids

First, everyone should drink plenty of water—your body needs it to run properly. And there's a bonus in doing that for people who are aiming to lose weight.

Ease up on the processed food

If you're looking at the label on a food item, and you don't know what half the ingredients are, it probably means it's overly processed.

Lift weights

Develop an exercise plan that includes heavy weights. Maintaining muscle mass takes more energy to do than maintaining fat, so our bodies burn more calories at rest.

Do intervals

Study after study continues to show intervals are more effective and time efficient than longer activity performed at a lower intensity.

Do full-body exercises

With full-body exercises, you're engaging more muscle groups, making your body work harder. You'll get more bang for your buck out of each workout.

Track your food

Tracking foods will help you realize how much you're actually taking in a day. It puts things into perspective.

Eat breakfast

A study review published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that those who ate breakfast were more successful with long-term weight maintenance.
