5 Weight-Loss Tips You Really Want to Know

by Leigh Ann Otte

Happy New Year!

Did you make any resolutions? Weight-loss commitments, perhaps?

If you were brave enough to announce such intentions, your ears have probably fallen off from all the advice you’ve received. But … we bet your eyes are still in place! Are they? Oh, goody, because we’ve got five expert tips that will surely put you on the track to success.

  1. To stay fuller and eat less, begin meals with a high-fiber, low-calorie appetizer. (Examples: salad, tomato- or broth-based soup, vegetables with hummus.)
  2. To burn fat quickly, do aerobic exercise 45 minutes a day, five days a week. (If this is daunting, you may want to work up to it.)
  3. Walk at a brisk pace to burn more calories. Running may burn even more–along the same distance.
  4. Consider exercising in the morning. You may be more likely to stick with it because of fewer distractions.
  5. Think hard before taking “natural” diet pills. They aren’t regulated like normal medicine.
