    Make a "super grocery list" every time before you go to the supermarket, which includes only a small or none (depending on your weight) amount of sweet/sugary food. Don't let yourself go down a certain isle if you know that it has a sweet you'll tempt yourself to break the "super grocery list" with. Don't buy anything that is not on the "super grocery list".

  • Drink a lot of water it is substantial for your organism and it will help you to get rid of harmful toxins.
  • Take the stairs as much as you can, not only is it great exercise but it will help you get leaner legs.
  • Eat lots of fruits and veggies.
  • Don't eat meals up to two hours before bed.
  • Drink low fat milk or soy milk.
  • Going to the gym and lifting weights is also a great way to help get in shape. Doing many repetitions at low weights will help build endurance in your muscles, and they will not get too big!


  • Don't starve yourself; it's not worth it to lose weight, and doing so will cause your body to go into starvation mode, where it tries to store more (and burn less) fat.
  • This will be a slow process, expect to lose 8 - 10 lbs in the first two weeks but after that expect to lose 1 - 2 lbs.
  • If you are highly overweight or have other health conditions, talk to your doctor first.
