Top 10 Best Ways to Lose Weight

A list of easy ways to lose weight and keep it off.
The Top Ten
1 Get a Life

The more time you spend doing something other than eating, the less time you spend eating (thus, the less you eat) and the less you eat out of boredom or anxiety.

Weird thing is, I'm not looking to lose weight, I'm trying to do the opposite, since apparently, I don't weight enough. It didn't mean much at first, but then I lost 6 pounds in 2 months -.-

If you choose the right activities, such as raking the leaves or cleaning windows, this too will help give you some exercise.

2 Drink Water

Most of your body is made up of water. Water has 0 calories, and if you drink water 30 min before eating, you'll eat less because you are hydrated. And being hydrated helps you because as the comment below me said... Your body gets confused between hunger and thirst. So, drink up!

Drink lots of water if you want to lose weight. Wait a sec... didn't a list on this site say there was such thing as diet water?

Your body is often confused between hunger and thirst, so have a low calorie drink before you immediately eat food.

3 Walk More

Not only will you save on gas, you'll get your exercise. Instead of driving, walk to the store, take the bus and get off a few stops early. Sweep the leaves and shovel the snow instead of using power tools. ALWAYS take the stairs.

When school started (back in September), I was in 197 pounds 5 foot 10! And I've been having 1 hour and 30 minutes of walking each day at school, and I had school 5 times per week... And ever since until NOW, I'm 180 pounds and 6 feet 1.

4 Switch to Low-Cal

A friend of mine lost 50 lbs cutting out staples like potatoes, bread, and pasta! Eat none of those ever and avoid sweets and alcohol and you'll lose weight!

This is all true. Pills and surgery won't KEEP the fat away, at least not forever. This has definitely been put to a lot of thought.

It's the most simple way. If you like veggies you're in luck, because they are the lowest foods and best for you.

5 Add Food, Don't Subtract

Instead of taking away food from your diet, try adding healthy options like vegetables and whole grains. You'll be fuller after a meal and will be consuming fewer calories. Don't forget to add fruits to your desserts or breakfast cereals.

Contrary to smaller-portioned meals, you still get to eat as much, so you won't be hungry. And you'll lose weight!

6 Chew Gum

So true here. I chew gum every day now, and it helps me control hunger a lot. I always used to think I was hungry, but I wasn't, and I'd grab a piece of gum and I'd be all good.

Sometimes you think you're hungry, but if you just chew a piece of flavored gum, that hunger goes away.

Chewing gum is good if you think your hunge. But it can bring back a lot of calories.

7 Use Smaller Portions

Put your food on a smaller plate, use small forks and spoons. You'll be eating less cereal if you use a smaller bowl. Much of eating is psychological- take the advantage back.

Plates made today are a lot bigger than they were decades ago. Just need to do the math.

You can easily make 2 meals out of most restaurant portions nowadays in the U.S.

8 Swim
9 Sweat

Fun fact: Without sweat, we would all die.

10 Turn Off the T.V.
The Contenders
11 Drink Diet Soda Instead of Regular Soda

Ok people tell me diet is worse but the problem with regular is you can taste the sugar and nothing else and with diet you don't get that so and look at the sugars in some drinks it scares me. The only drink I like that is not diet is coca-Cacloa life because is have natural flavors

Diet sodas actually way worse for you than the regular. You should buy regular soda if you like soda and just savor the taste and perhaps cut down on the it

Any kind of soda is real bad for you. This shouldn't be on the list

12 Stop Eating When You're Full

When food taste so good people sometimes don't care if they are full. They will still eat for the taste. It's a habit that isn't hard to quit

13 Eat Dinner Before 6:50

Studies show that if you wait three hours after you've eaten to go to bed, then you won't be as fat. You body burns away fat faster when your awake.

Then that's under the assumption I sleep at... 9:50?!

14 Workout While You Watch

Make movement part of your evening routine. Dance to American Idol, do tricep dips and crunches to Survivor...

15 Skip a Meal Out

Don't eat out as often. Try bringing your lunch instead of going out for it. When you need to go out, try the healthier food choices.

Ok this is telling you to skip a meal and this is very unhealthy

16 Get a Dog

They're like workout machines!

17 Do a Sport You Enjoy With Music

Music actually makes you perform better when doing physical activity.

18 Be Patient

It's always easier to keep the weight off than to lose it. Once you see the scales drop, your motivation will increase and the job will be easier.

19 Don't Work Out

Switch to activities you enjoy such as hiking, biking, or walking, instead of "working out". Activities you enjoy are less scary than "exercising".

20 Cut Out Fried Foods

I am a big eater and that's the problem for many of us. We start off doing great but diets are hard. Finally I made the decision to simply cut out the fried stuff (other than maybe once a month) and always bake things instead. I didn't really change the amount of food I ate, just how I prepared it and over the course of a year I lost fifteen pounds and didn't even notice it.

21 Share Portions

When you go out to eat, split a large meal between 2 people, same with desert, a pint of beer...

22 Go to the Gym
23 Get Good Sleep

When we deprive ourselves of sleep, all sorts of things happen: we look for comfort from warm fatty foods, our judgment is affected and we don't stop eating when we should. But really, if you're sleeping, you can't be eating.

Sleeping is good for me because when I sleep my mouth stop chewing food

24 Cut Out Sweets
25 Intermittent Fasting
