My fitness secret for burning more calories

Don't do the exact same exercise for the exact same time and intensity every day. Vary the times and intensities and even activity. Your body is smart and if you do the same thing all the time your body efficiently burns fewer calories for the same time and intensity than it did before.

Eat and drink water BEFORE you are hungry and first thing in the morning!

Don't wait until you are famished to eat. When you get up in the morning start with 1 glass of water and a banana or some small food item. Thinking this way promotes small meals through out the day which is proven to help with weight loss.

Keep a food diary

I have found that I am most successful at maintaining my weight if I track my food. At first it can seem tedious but eventually you get in the habit and if you are brutally honest with yourself it really helps keep you from overeating.

No more white sugar and white flour

I was so stuck at a certain weight. I was exercising, eating within my calorie range, but as soon as I stopped white sugar and white flour I have lost six pounds, which is a lot for me, being stuck for over 5 months!

Make Small Weight Loss Goals

Instead of looking at the 100lbs you want to lose by the end of the year, make smaller goals to loose 1.5-2lbs a week. That way when you reach your goal early or on time you are more motivated to keep doing the right things.

The 400 Rule

I have used this strategy for a long time and it works for me. I eat basically 400 calories at each main meal and one 100-200 calorie snack. If your calorie allotment is higher eat three 400 calorie meals and 2-3 snacks at 100-300 calories depending on your calorie range.

Downsize

Basically everything in moderation. I eat just about anything I want, even at buffets, I just don't take huge amounts. You hear it on 'The Doctors':
"Everything in moderation, some things on occasion."
