1. Keep track of what you eat. 

Dieters who keep track of everything they consume lose twice as much weight as those who do not.

2. Set realistic weight loss goals. 

One to two pounds per week is a good average.

3. Motivate yourself. 

Get a dress or pair of jeans that are too tight and hang them in your kitchen instead of the closet to keep yourself inspired.

4. Move it to lose it. 

People who do physical activities such as walking or biking for two to four hours a week lose extra pounds.

5. Avoid hunger. 

Eat regular meals and snacks. Try to add some protein foods such as yogurt, tuna, or chicken for most meals since protein helps you feel full.

6. Pay attention to portions. 

When making your plate put smaller portions of food. It would also help to use a smaller plate. Portion control is a major key in losing weight effectively.

7. Enlist the help of family and friends.

Dieters who have support from friends or loved ones lose weight faster than those who do not have support from others.

8. Clean out your pantry and refrigerator. 

Get rid of the foods that sabotage your weight loss.

9. Stock up on “impulse fruits” and produce. 

Fruit such as grapes, small apples, bananas and pears are easy to eat without much cutting or slicing. Place a bowl of vegetables such as carrots, broccoli, and cucumbers in your refrigerator and snack on them to take the edge off of your hunger.

10. Get plenty of sleep.  

Sleep deprivation increases levels of a hunger hormone and decreases the levels of the hormone that makes you feel full. Lack of sleep also plays havoc with your fat cells and leads to overeating and weight gain. 

11. Drink plenty of water. 

Drinking 16 ounces, or two glasses, of water before meals may help you eat less.

12. Do not eat after 8 pm.  

What you eat late at night will not burn off before going to bed and will cause weight gain.
