Don't have time to diet?

Portion control is an essential skill for effective weight loss. Chicken breast is great for you, but not if you eat more than you need. Some foods are better for your body than junk food, but they'll still cause if you overeat.
 Stick to these portion sizes when planning your meals:
    • 1 serving of cereal = size of your fist
    • 1 serving of a starch (rice, pasta, potato) = half of a baseball
    • 1 serving of cheese = 4 stacked dice
    • 1 serving of fruit = baseball
    • 1 serving of margarine or butter = 1 dice
    • 1 serving of meat, fish, poultry = a deck of cards
  1. Count calories.  With the availability of mobile apps like the one at calorie counting .com it has become easier for people who are busy to track their calories. If you have a smartphone, calorie counting will take no more than a few seconds; your totals are stored so that you can review them.
Most people can reduce their daily intake by 500 calories per day to see a healthy weight loss of about 1 pound per week.
  1. Move more. This doesn't necessarily mean that you have to exercise For some people, exercise works against them. If you complete a hard workout in the morning and then spend the rest of day sitting or lying on the couch, you will probably end up burning fewer calories from movement than a person who does not exercise and who makes non-exercise activity a part of their daily habit.
  2. So start losing those extra pounds today.
