    Diet and exercise - boring but proven.

    Start by not even changing your diet. Just eat less. Eat sensibly sized single portions.

    Then when you've mastered that, begin to increase the amount of physical activity you do. Use the stairs, not the lift. Ride a bicycle to work. The trick is to find a physical activity you enjoy - it makes it much easier to keep it up in the long term.

    Having mastered eating less and exercising more, your next task is to improve the quality of the food you eat. Plenty of vegetables and fruit, rice, oats, wholegrain breads, fish, chicken, cut back on red meat.

    Increasing your metablism through these three steps is the name of the game. You'll look better, feel great, and it'll do wonders for your private life.

    The best way to ensure that you lose weight is to count calories. You can look for formulas to calculate how many calories you are approximately burning a day at thedailyplate.com.

    One pound is equal to 3500 calories, so you need to burn 3500 more calories than you consume to lose a pound. The best way to do that is to lose 1 to 2 pounds a week with a 500-1000 calorie deficit.

    Lastly, strength training is very important.

    The key part to keeping the weight off is to make sure that the diet you are on now to lose weight is one that you can stick with for the rest of your life.

    consistency...it is a lifestyle. A clean diet and fitness of some form will keep your physique in check...there will be times when you will have a cheat meal but yo-yo dieting is horrible. instead of staving or extremely restrictive diet, changing your diet and cleaning it up will keep you on track!

    Everyone wants an easy answer to weight loss.

    It doesn't get easier than the obvious answer that people choose to ignore.

    Count calories. Eat less than you burn. If you burn 2500 a day, eat 2000. You will lose 1 pound every week. This is simple math. Eat less, burn fat. Eat more, gain fat.

    Once you understand that there will never be a shortcut other than this method, you will be able to control your weight forever.

    Studies show that no diet is superior to any other, when a calorie deficit is in place.
