Count your calories. This is the easiest way to keep yourself in check when it comes to eating.
(P.S. there isn't only one rule)
You first need to get focused on what it is you want to acheive with the weight loss.
If you want the weight off for good you need to change you eating habits permanently and start to find time to exercise everyday.
If you are just losing weight for a special occasion then you just need to make some small changes but exercise more until you reach your weight loss goal, however the weight will return if you don't make a complete dietary change.
And yes there isn't just one rule there are many ways that you can this the trick is finding the one that suits you and works.
Here is my answer which hopefully helps before undertaking exercise and dieting:
* check out for food allergies/intolerances
* cleanse your colon (remove mucoid plaque)
* eliminate unrecognised parasites in your body (ie candida, etc)
* Detox, drink lots of water, sweat it out
* avoid drinking alcohol
* check for hormonal imbalances
* relax. relax. relax
Review any medications that you are taking to ensure that they aren't causing the weight gain and see if any can be switched to a variety that may promote weight loss.
In the world there is no one rule to loose the weight but increase the weight one rule is available eat more and more as you can. LOL....
Count your calories intake
Burn more calories
Eat the right kinds of foods....the foods that we were designed to eat....
*Avoid anything that you can't pronounce...
*If you do eat animals, go as organic as you can. Cows were meant to eat grass not grain...
*Avoid things you wouldn't eat in its natural state (breads, grains, potatoes, ect)
The simple fact is that we, as a species, still haven't evolved enough to handle the types of foods we are eating.
The main rule you're going to need to follow is:
Take in less calories than you burn in a day.
You can achieve this in 2 ways...
Eat less than you normally do
Be more active
Doing one or the other is going to get you close to losing weight, but doing both will help you get there faster. If I were to chose one over the other, I would choose to modify my eating habits first.
The answer is simple. The one rule to lose weight begins with psychology. When your mind is focused and you find the motivation you need to overcome all the obstacles to your weight, you can begin to lose weight.
This element is probably the most challenging part of losing weight and to changing your lifestyle. But once you change your internal programming, your actions will follow.
Most of us know that healthy eating and exercise is what is required to lose weight. If you change your mindset, all the rest becomes easy.
exercise 40 mins a day
drink lots of water
cut out fast food soda etc
Your calorie intake must be lower than the enegy you burn each day. Metabolism must stay high, so do Not starve yourself through the day. Eat small "meals" about 5 to 6 times a day.
For me, the "main" and the "core" golden rule to lose weight is your self-determination. If your mind stay strong enough for reminding you everyday to lose weight, then you will stay confidently with your ideal weight. Weight loss take years, but it is achievable. I used to go through a remarkable fat-slim-fat-slim weight loss experiences and there's once my highest weight reached 185 lbs.........So if you think you want to pursue a better life, then you must learn how to pursue a presentable outlook, of course besides healthy body and smart mind...
Eat One Appetizer Diet Chocolate Chip Cookie with a glass of water before your meal.
I agree with Bendo13. Take in less calories than you burn in a day. Be sensible. Eat enough to make you satisfied but not so much you feel stuffed and don't deny yourself foods you love just eat smaller portions.
One of the things that helped me lose weight fairly quickly without much work (exercise) was to get rid of all sodas, coffee, tea, shakes, etc. All I drank morning, noon and night was water. Within 2 weeks I had lost 6 pounds and I had changed nothing except just to drink water instead of anything else. This actually got me motivated to doing a little exercise so i started walking about 30 minutes in the evening and after 1 month my total weight loss was 10 pounds.
Hope this helps!

Since it is only one* rule to lose weight.
Usually if a person cuts back to 1500 calories a day (cut back if you stay at the same weight after two weeks), they will lose weight.
That is only since I could add one rule. The best way is to cut back on calories and work out. The problem with only cutting back on calories is if you are starving yourself your body will turn you muscle into fat which gives you no real gains. The best way to lose weight is to cut calories to a healthy portion and spend sometime at a gym/track.
Do not give up. And don't give up either. It is a daily moment to moment fight to control your behavior. I am not giving up. And I ain't giving up either.
Commit!! If you don't want it, really want it - you won't get it. Losing weight is a head game.
Drink 7 glasses of water a day
Its a fact that every human being on this earth needs water to survive, but for those who are trying to lose weight; water is an essential addition in dieting. More water in your body means more cleansing of the body organ's impurities. This will have a profoundly positive effect on your body by converting the excess fats in to pure energy.
The most basic rule of weight loss is quite simple: eat fewer calories than you take in!
do everything in moderation! i.e. eat several small meals a day and exercise regularly : )
Proper diet control is very important to lose your weight.
The Strip That Fat program follows all those rules about calorie control, portion control and focuses on eating health meals.

You must practice moderation and discipline 80% of your weight lost is your what you eat, exercise helps about 20%.
*Exercise- 30 minutes- 3X's a week
*Eat Right- Six days a week.
Make a daily eating schedule. Don't eat much. Drink enough water, sleep well, and walk or exercise at least half an hour.
The only and most important rule to weight loss is honesty. Don't lie to yourself about what you are eating and drinking and it will be easy for you to cut out the extras and lose weight without a lot of exercising.
Well, for one,
* you must increase your intake of liquids. And that doesn't mean soft drinks! Or sugary juices....
*drink water, green tea with sugar substitute.
*Cut out the sugar. You wouldn't believe the difference this will make.
*Cut back on white breads. Go whole grain or the 'No sugar added variety'.
*Eat low cal, low point items late in the day or in the evening.
* Excercise more, even if it's brisk walking 20 minutes a day, or every other day.
Balanced diet with portion control, water and Exercise, There is not one rule! You are kidding yourself if you think there is!
BREAKFAST! Within an hour of waking up and make sure it has protein and whole grains...easiest way to rev your metabolism.
When you feel the urge to eat something which you know is unhealthy, high in fat etc.
Ask yourself, “Do I really want this?”
If you are honest with yourself and you are committed to your weight loss (more importantly creating a healthier and better quality of life), you will make the best decision for you.
For me, it's determination. All decisions you have on how are you going to lose weight fail if you don't have determination.
Eat foods that are high in nutrition. You body needs fuel and dieting or restricting your caloric intake will actually cause you to retain fat and gain weight.
You have to give your can clean fuel, so why would that be any different for a high tech machine like your body? Feed yuor body the best fuel you can find. That would be nutrient dense, raw fruits and veggies.
Everything in Moderation.
Don't over eat, over sleep, over play, over work, over excercise.
Try not be addicted or obsessed with a "thing".
Moderate your activities and your food intake. Life maybe short but it's the longest thing we're ever going to do, so take it easy, there's plenty.
the number one rule would be to :
.well u eat smaller portions of wht u normally eat u don't have to stop all the bad stuff just not eat it all the time once in awhile is okay also u wanna watch the salt and the calories only have a certain amount of them per day
One time a doctor told me that the best way to lose weight is to keep ones mouth shut.. YES, he really did tell me that! and I tried, but it didn't work.. lol
there are five words that are the key to weight loss:
we constantly strive to find the magic pill to blast the fat from our bones yet ontinue to say yes to the McDonald's upsize request.
drink more water & walk for 30 mins daily
Doesn't matter what u eat ..u will reduce weight
Water improoves ur metabolism
Body starts gaining weight when it doesn't have any activity
So just with simple walk & use small amounts of sugar & fat
eat more vegetables & fruits in ur daily intake
The rule is only one: Eat less!
And I'm absolutely sure about it. Everything else are only good pieces of advise, exercise, drink water, sleep more, take the stairs instead of elevator... Yes, but only with food reduction.
Rule #1 MODERATION!
That is the key!
In every diet, actual and fad, they all call for you to be moderate in you consumption.
That is the key.
The best way to shed some weight is to monitor your daily intake of calories over a week (or 2) you can then work out the average amount of calories you intake per day then simply deduct a respecable amount from this.
To lose an average of 1Lb a week you would need to cut out around 500 calories per day from your diet. This being said some people would find this hard to just cut back 500 calories. If this describes you then start with a smaller cut back and allow your body to adjust, this way your natural average daily/weekly calorie intake will be reduced making futher calorie reductions easier.
Also foods with lower calories that make you feel full are also advisable to help take away hunger periods. The best advice is to find a path that you are happy and comfortable with and slowly build upon that jumping in at the deepend and cutting out everything in 1 go will usually leave you hungry and disheartened and more likely to give up.
You can also combine this with workouts to futher burn calories.
Eat less calories than you work off through exercise. Simples.
If there is only one rule, the rule should be:
Don't eat junk/processed food.
You can take in less calories than your resting metabolic rate but if all those are made out of junk food, you will still gain fat.
Of course preferably you should add another rule and it would be exercise.
Eat these foods to help weight loss. I used these foods and I lost 30 pounds within 4 months, it sounds crazy but it is true. I lifted every day and followed these easy to find foods to help my weight loss. I am currently 168 pounds with 9% body fat, I used to weigh 195 pounds in the beginning of June 2009 and lost almost all my fat in October of 2009. I am still lifting and still following this diet. I could not be any happier with the results I have seen and is why I wanted to share with all you great hubbers.
I drink 2 ounces of Le'vive juice twice a day! It really works and taste great! I also take other supplements in addition to wearing a reshaping garment that promotes weight loss. I exercise 30-45 mins 3x a week and follow a healthy diet. www.ardysslife.com/mynewbodynow
I lost weight FAST when I started walking 30 minutes a day, cut out fast food, pop, alcohol, replaced mayo with barbecue sauce, things like that and cut out bread. Only eat a single serving, if you are full no matter how good it is stop eating!
