-- One of the best ways to lose weight fast is to choose the right combination of diet and exercise. Ugh - how many times have you heard that? Between this 'common sense' advice and extreme advice like using laxatives or fasting to lose weight, is there a middle ground? You would think that in our modern age, there are new techniques and research that have identified the best ways to lose weight.
Well, you can lose weight, but if you are going to totally skip doing workouts and exercises in the gym, it is just going to take you much longer. But you can make a very good start by working with how you approach your meals; if you want to lose weight, you are going to have to learn one key concept: portion control. It's not that you eat all wrong, you just are eating too much.
Restaurants today almost always give you enough food for two people - so why not begin the habit of splitting your meal with a friend? If you eat a hamburger and fries at a typical casual dining spot, your giant burger and bucket of fries can be easily divided in half, with more than enough for two people.
Start leaving some food on your plate - make a vow to leave at least 2 bites of each item. Slow down your eating and drink at least one big glass of water with every meal. Set your fork down between bites. Most of us eat like hungry wolves - remember, it's not your last meal.
Start using portion control when you eat; slow down and hydrate with a big glass of water. This technique is easy to do and is one of the best way to lose weight.
