Losing That Extra Weight
Strategies for Successful Slimming
The first secret to controlling weight is being more active. With regular exercise we can burn the calories we consume instead of storing them as fat.
To slim down and stay slim, getting more exercise should be your number one lifelong priority.
2. Trim your diet in mini-steps
Make any diet changes only one or two at a time--enough to save about 125 calories a day. That could mean switching from mayonnaise to mustard on your sandwich at lunch. The next day, use 1 percent low-fat milk instead of half-and-half in your coffee.
When those changes have become habits, add another small change or two.
