10 Ways to Shed Weight for a Sexy 2013

1      Take more steps each day - Get yourself a pedometer and gradually add more steps until you reach 10,000 per day. Throughout the day, do whatever you can to be more active -- pace while you talk on the phone, take the dog out for an extra walk, and march in place during television commercials.  Having a pedometer serves as a constant motivator and reminder.2      Eat smaller portions. By doing nothing more than reducing your portions by 10%-20%, you would lose weight. The portions served both in restaurants and at home are larger than you need.3      Eat some protein at every meal and snack.  You will feel less hungry if you add a source of lean protein to every meal and snack you eat each day. Good sources of snack protein are low-fat yogurts, nuts, peanut butter, eggs, beans, or lean meats such as fish. You should also eat small, frequent meals and snacks (about every 3-4 hours), to keep your blood sugar levels steady and to avoid overindulging.4      Go for low-fat foods. Use the low-fat versions of salad dressings, mayonnaise, dairy, and other products. Other smart substitutions include using salsa or hummus as a dip; spreading sandwiches with mustard instead of mayo; eating plain roasted sweet potatoes instead of loaded white potatoes; using skim milk instead of cream in your coffee; holding the cheese on sandwiches; and using a little vinaigrette on your salad instead of piling on creamy dressing.5      Eat Breakfast Every Day. People who are trying to lose weight often think that by skipping breakfast they will consume less calories and lose weight quicker. Studies show, however, that people who eat breakfast burn less calories because they fail to start their metabolism and they are also more likely to eat too much at lunch in order to compensate for the missed meal.6      Don’t eat late at night. Set a time when you will stop eating so that you don’t give in to late-night snacking. If you need something sweet to eat after dinner then it would be better to have a cup of tea or a small bowl of light ice cream or frozen yogurt. After eating your last meal of the day brush your teeth and you will be less likely to snack again.7      Select your liquid calories wisely. Sweetened drinks add a lot to your daily calorie total while failing to reduce the hunger you feel like solid foods do. If thirsty drink water, skim or low-fat milk or small portions of 100% juice.8      Eat More Produce.  Eating lots of low-calorie, high-volume fruits and vegetables will make it less likely that you eat other foods that are higher in fat and calories. Move meat from the center of your plate and pile on the vegetables or start your meal with a salad or broth based soup.9      Go for the Grain.  Substituting whole grains for refined grains like white bread, cakes, cookies, and pretzels will add much-needed fiber to your diet and will fill you up faster so that you're less likely to overeat. Choose whole-wheat breads and pastas, brown rice, bran flakes, popcorn, and whole-rye crackers.10   Control Your Environment.  If you have cake at your house you will probably end up eating cake. Cut calories by surrounding yourself with healthy food. Stock your kitchen with a lot of healthy options and choose restaurants with healthy menus.
