CuriousJockAZ saidDon't go for the quick and easy fix that doesn't last. What you need is a diet & exercise program that you can stick to, and a lifestyle change that will get results and keep you on a health & fitness-minded path. Lose the weight the right way, and implement a diet & exercise program that will keep it off.
He's right bud. a first good step tho, is try cut out all the things you eat that have "added" sugar (tea and coffee counts). Look on the ingredients. If suger is listed, find an alternative (even something as simple as a loaf of bread has added sugar),
These are empty calories. They don't make you feel full or satified, but translate into a LOT of kilojoules of very quickly digested energy. If the body isn't burning this energy right then, it stores it as fat.
Try also avoid artificial sweeteners as well, they train the pallet to expect food to be sweet.
Other than that, all I can suggest is start doing brisk walking. it's the best sort of activity to kick off fatty acid degradation (fat metabolism).
More intensive training forces the body into a stress state triggering glycolysis (carbohydate metobolism) or the emergency conversion of protein to glycogen via Ketosis which burns protien as an assist to fat metabolism., if you're not on a high protien diet this will degrade muscle tissue.
