Lose weight programs are available but these may not help you if you are not strong to see them through. There are simple things that you can do yourself to start losing weight without spending too much money on weight loss pills, supplements, and other expensive stuff.

You can easily do this by having a notebook and writing down all the kinds of foods that you eat each week. Once you have completed the list, it's easy to see which foods you have been overdosing on and make those the first target to either reduce or do away with altogether.

Since your body is already adjusted to the level of calories you have been eating, it is not wise to drastically change it by starvation or denying your body such calories abruptly. Your body would go into shock and register drought. Your metabolism adjusts to just burn the few calories you have adjusted to.

Once you stop dieting, your body will regain much more fat than you ever had before. Your body will want to keep stocks of it to avoid its experience in the previous drought. It is therefore good to replace the foods delisted. Find healthier alternatives rather than reducing your calorie intake altogether.

4. Make a weekly menu
From the healthier foods that you have identified or done research online on, create a DIY personal diet plan or menu, only this time with more healthy and natural foods. Your menu should be such that it gradually reduces the number of calories in the food over time. This will help increase metabolic rate such that it continues to burn the extra fat in your body thus losing fat. This menu should be stuck to and followed strictly.

The body then retains a lot of water in some very unsightly areas. This friend is a dead weight you don’t need. You can start seeing instant results in weight loss by simply drinking lots of water per day.
