    What's your slimming secret?

    I see so many things on social media and on television about how to lose weight this way and that. With so many things to out there who can tell what really works. So what works for you? What is a lifestyle/daily diet change that you've made that has kept your weight off long-term? Exercise? A special fruit and veggie shake? More water? Let us hear it.

    Good breakfast; timely eating; never eating to stomach's full; not eating snacks between meal times; limiting the consumption of sweets and oily foods; if either of them are taken in excess, reduce the overall meal intake; drink lot of water; regular walking; yoga for 20 minutes; walking up by stairs up to 3 floors (and avoiding elevator); no alcohol; no fast foods; no Pepsi/ Colas; hardly 2-3 cups of tea (with milk) daily.

    My weight is remaining almost same (+/- 2 kg) for the past 25 years, by divine grace.

      I always tell people the same thing C.V. Rajan....don't eat until you're full, just eat until you are no longer hungry. It's worked well for me.

    If you want to lose weight then count calories. You can eat what you want as long as you don't go over your maximum calorie intake. It helps to eat healthy food as they don't contain as many calories so you can eat more and feel full. If you want to eat more then you need to exercise.

    To keep your weight stable you still need to know how many calories your body needs so as not to put the weight back on.

    I used MyfitnessPal an online weight loss community and it  worked really well for me. I lost 16 lb in 3months and now I know the calorie count of most foods I know how much I'm consuming each day.

      I've always hated when people count cals especially to the point of obsession but as you say, once you know the foods you can eat you can relax and no longer have to count the cals. Thanks for sharing christin53!

    My slimming secret is that I gained weight doing cardio. I started biking once a week and my legs became more muscular. It looked like I lost weight but I gained 25 pounds. To keep the fat off in the cold months I do other cardio exercises as well as some strength training. I need to be muscular to stay lean.

      I have noticed that eating out less cuts down on the bulge. It only makes sense but it is definitely more noticeable than you may realize.

    Definitely more exercise but make it challenging with weights. Also, I use My Fitness Pal app to count calories periodically, and I started eating more pineapple which has bromelain, an enzyme with many health benefits, and can help to keep you slim.

      I did not know that about pineapple. I used to eat it all the time. Maybe I need to make it a habit again. I love it. I've always said it was the perfect fruit...you get both food and drink all in one. Ha!

    You just have to move away from the pastries and sweets and fats not eat until full. Tcetkaa to eat five times a day provided it is not up to the point of fullness. All this with exercise three times a week in the cafe to get a good result
