TEN TIPS TO FOLLOW FOR WEIGHT CONTROL

#1 Set yourself a weight goal and invest in a digital weight scale and diary. Weigh yourself first thing in the morning and use the diary to record your weights and make notes of what you're eating.

#2 Eat mostly super nutritious soups and keep cold water on hand in the fridge for drinking.

#3 Start the 5:2 diet. Whether you're fasting days are consecutive or non-consecutive is up to you and what suits your body.

#4 Breakfast: on the fasting days, go early in the day to the gym with an empty stomach.

#5 For those who like their breakfast, on non-fasting days eat a high protein meal such as fried egg and salmon.

#6 At the gym, warm up with aerobics then do the weight training.

#7 To reduce the inevitable hunger pains, try eating an occasional apple and drink an adequate amount of liquid.

#8 Leave your car at home and walk and ride your bike as often as you can.

#9 Try to avoid eating out as much as possible. Also, only eat when you're hungry, NOT because the clock says so.

#10 NEVER EVER GIVE UP ON YOUR WEIGHT GOALS.

The reasons behind what I have suggested above are explained in more detail in the main article.
