Updated on July 19, 2010

If you find that you do not make any headway in your efforts to lose your fat, you may be hamstrung by some of your activities controlled by your lifestyle. If you make certain basic changes in your lifestyle, you will succeed in your efforts. The following few tips may be of help:

You can climb up or down the stairs instead of using lifts or elevators. You can have a stroll in the nearby park during your lunch time or walk to the shopping mall and so on. In a nutshell, instead of being inactive, you should be more active physically. This will help you in burning more calories to succeed in your efforts for fat loss.

- There are certain diets that build fat. Eating more of foods that contain more of sugar and salt will encourage fat building of the body. Therefore, you should reduce eating such foods. Similarly, you should also avoid foods that contain a high amount of carbohydrates such as ice creams, sweets, cakes and pastries. Processed foods, fried foods and junk foods should be completely avoided. Especially, processed foods contain chemical preservatives that are harmful to your body. They are toxins and if you take processed foods regularly, you may develop several other health complications also. These toxins remain inside the fat cells of your body, making those cells stronger.

- Drinking plenty of water is highly recommended to reduce your body fat. Water is a great toxin-remover. When toxins are removed from the fat cells, they get weak and therefore, reducing your fat becomes an easy task. Water also gives a feeling of fullness of stomach and so, you should develop the habit of drinking several sips of water during your eating. This habit will reduce the intake of your normal food.

- You should also have a good exercises regimen for reducing your body fat. Your exercises regimen should consist of both cardiovascular and weight-training exercises. Cardiovascular exercises burn your calories but they burn your muscles also. So, you should re-build your muscles with weight-training exercises. If you have a good muscle fat, you can burn calories round the clock and this will help you in fat loss. But you should ensure that you consistently and regularly do your exercises.
