If you are losing weight rapidly you are usually losing water and muscle from your body rather than fat.So it is important not to lose too much muscle as you will need a good metabolism to help your body continue to lose weight.If you lose muscle tone you will more likely see a decrease in calorie loss.

Exercise is needed for effective weightloss.

If you want to keep the weight off in the long term it is essential to include exercise of 4-5 30 minute sessions per week.This can also be divided into smaller sessions which research shows can also be effective in helping you to reduce your weight.

It is important to choose a form of exercise which you enjoy and to ask a friend to join in with your exercise activities.Some examples of exercise are walking,cycling,running,swimming and cardio exercises.If you are making small errand in your area ,try and leave your car at home and walk instead.

To help you lose more weight it is advised to do some weight training at your local gym, as the more muscle you have the more calorires you will lose.Just remember to keep your body moving throughout the day which can also increase your metabolism.It is also a good idea to start your exercises early in the morning before you consume any meals as this will burn more fat and boost your metabolism throughout the day.

Choose your foods wisely.

Some weight loss diet tips for choosing the right foods is to reduce the amount of fat that you eat.Only consume fats that are non saturated and don't exceed 25 per cent of fat in your calorie intake.

Try to stay away from sugar as this can prevent you from losing weight.Foods that contain sugar will increase your calorie intake which means you will have to work harder to reduce your weight.

Choose foods that are high in fibre which will make you feel full and eat less.Foods high in fibre are fruit and vegetables and wholegrains.It is also important to eat your foods slowly which can help you feel full as well.Drinking enough water everyday will help deliver vital nutrients to the cells in your body and can help with cravings and also make you full.
