Ten Steps to Losing Weight
8. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. Nearly every major
healthorganization makes this simple suggestion, since most fruits and veggies
are nutritious and naturally low in fat and calories.
9. Cut down on soda and other sugary drinks. Soft drinks provide a lot of
hidden calories without making you feel full. For every cup of soda you replace
with water, you'll reduce your caloric intake by about 100 calories.
10. Keep track of your progress. People who keep records of
theirachievements are more likely to succeed, according to Jane Kirby, RD,
author of Dieting for Dummies. Take time to celebrate not just every
pound you lose, but every healthy decision you make.
