More than the issue of losing weight, keeping your body fit and healthy is another major concern.

Watch Your Calorie Intake If you are not aware before of how much calories you eat in daily basis, you might want to start measuring those now. Create a notebook where you can list all the things that you have to eat by schedule. This will keep you away from eating junk and unhealthy foods.
Cut Down On Sodas Like it or not, the sodas you drink add up to your pounds and can make you go big again, wasting all your effort and hard work losing weight. Whenever you are tempted to drink 12 ounce of soda, keep in mind that it is equivalent to 18 packs of sugar. That’s a lot of toxic sweets to contribute to your bloodstream.
