For those people who have let the years go by without exercising or eating a balanced diet the results can be devastating. Stepping onto the scales and finding you are obese or even worse morbidly obese, drives people to despair. Don’t let this happen to you.

With regular exercise and a good, healthy diet the pounds will soon fall off you. Check out the following five top tips for getting in tip top shape:-

Number 1
Although it doesn’t sound like the right thing to do, eating more often really works. Spacing your meals out during the day and evening can actually help you lose weight. Many people just don’t have time for breakfast but this should be one of the main means of your day. It fires your metabolism into action and makes dieting much easier. Take your time when eating. The slower you eat the fuller you’ll feel.

Number 2
Try and include protein foods like turkey, low fat mince, chicken and fish into your daily diet. Throw out any fast food, fizzy drinks, crisps, instant meals now. It’s essential to take in carbohydrates for energy so start buying more vegetables, beans and whole grains.

Number 3
Another important tip for losing weight is to drink plenty of water. Water is necessary to help digestion and absorb food. It also regulates blood circulation and body temperature. Water carries oxygen and nutrients to the cells while taking away waste and toxins. Since it doesn’t contain any calories, water can act as an appetite suppressant, so if you are feeling peckish, try a glass of water.

Number 4
A good suggestion when you’re on a diet is not to eat before going to bed. It’s virtually impossible for the body to burn excess calories once you are asleep. Whatever type of food you eat late at night is just going to lie on your stomach.

Number 5
Finally, exercise. It’s well known that if you don’t exercise on a regular basis, fat is going to be stored in the body which will quickly pile on the pounds. Make exercising fun and see the change in the shape of your body as well as becoming lighter in weight. Try cycling, it’s quite relaxing and you can see things you wouldn’t normally see especially if you were in a car. Going to a gym can also be very beneficial. The gym is a great place to meet new people and discuss new ways of trying to lose weight.
