Dieting for weight loss consists of 3 main components.
First of all, you need to get into a calorie deficit. Basically, this means that you need to burn off more calories through exercising and metabolism than you take in through food and drinks! This is simple mathematics. If you do not burn off more calories than you take in, it does not matter how healthy you eat. You will still weigh the same! Want to be skinnier? Then make sure to get into a caloric deficit! Of course, remember not to ‘starve’ yourself, because getting into a caloric deficit is a two part equation – exercising and dieting. Also increase the intensity of your exercises and don’t starve until you become a skeleton.
Second of all, when decreasing your calories over time to get into a calorie deficit, reduce those calories mainly from simple sugars and carbohydrates in your diet. These are the biggest culprits that cause you to gain weight.
Third of all, use this trick – drink a glass of water after meal. Many women accidentally mistake thirst for hunger, and then eat too much. To prevent that, take a glass of water AFTER your meal! (Make sure not to take before, or you will feel bloated, eat too little during that meal, and start snacking and before you know it, your calorie intake will be going out of control!).
