The most daunting task of a person that a person can ever come face to face with is the challenge of losing those extra pounds especially when you’ve not necessarily lived a healthy lifestyle for a while. But with all the fad diets and tips that are out there, amongst conflicting opinions and so on and so forth, one can tend to get confused as to which methods to lose weight are indeed the most practical and viable.

So, here is a list of tips that will bring your weight under control slowly (and if followed with a degree of practicality) will work for you as well:

1) Drink at least eight to ten glasses of water a day as this will flush your bodies of fat and impurities, resulting in gradual weight loss. If you would like speed up the process then drink some green or herbal tea as this will aid in further fat loss as well.

2) Divide your meals into five or six smaller meals (as opposed to 3 large ones) as this will not only speed up your metabolism but will also prevent from getting too hungry between meals.

3) Increase your vegetables and fruit intake as they contain essential vitamins while decreasing the fat intake (to about 20 grams) as well. Increasing your fiber intake is also an excellent idea by opting for whole grain pasta and bread.

4) Successful fat loss is not just about eating right but exercising for at least 30 minutes a day.

5)Keep track of how you snack by not eating anything for at least two hours before you go to bed.

6) Cleansing your body of harmful impurities (by using fruits such as the Acai berry) is an important part of weight loss. Harmful chemicals that are ingested add layers of fat to our body as well as clog our organs and in cleansing our bodies with these types of nutrients, one can increase their chances of weight loss without a doubt.
