Starting a weight loss program? Follow these simple steps to reach your goals.

Eat 5 to 6 small meals a day
Instead of the old way of eating 3 big meals and not eating anything in between, eat 5 to 6 small meals every 3 to 4 hours.

Watch your fat intake
Our daily calorie coming from fats should be of the least amount. Avoid trans fats which do nothing good but increases total cholesterol levels and further increases the risk of coronary artery disease and also deplete good cholesterol (HDL).

Keep it simple
It’s not too hard to stay on a proper diet. Don’t get too caught up with the diet. Just remember anything that is good for health eaten in excess is bad for health. For e.g.: just because protein is good for building muscles doesn’t mean, the more the better. The extra will be stored as fats and by the way excessive protein breakdown strains the liver and the kidney functions.

Control Alcohol intake
It might be surprising to many that alcohol can be converted to fat. When total calorie intake exceeds caloric output, alcohol can be converted to fat. Next time you wonder why you are not losing weight even after a proper diet, it could be because of the alcohol.

Water Water Water
Drink lots and lots of water. Keep yourself hydrated at all times. Drink water before, during and after workouts and at all times.

Follow these simple steps and take yourself closer to your weightloss(Fatloss) goals.

Stay Healthy!
