I could not lose the weight after changing of so many diet.

I had my 2nd child in Feb of 2010. I couldn t lose the weight. In august I was 155 and I quick smoking, stopped drinking soda, eating sweets and cut out fast food entirely. It is now December and I am down to 125. Is that normal for making so many changed in my diet ? Before this weight loss I was smoking a pack a day, drinking 2-3 large soda s from mcdonalds, a couple other soda s thruoghout the day and eating alot of fast food. Now I m drinking lots of water, eating fruits. Baking meals at home with low fat meats, or turkey. Plus Im not skipping meals I m eating at least 3 meals a day and sometimes will have a snack or 2 throughout the day. Just wanted to make sure that this is normal for this kind of change.

You will lose weight when you burn more calories than you consume. Hence eating less and being more active help in losing weight

Sound eating habits keep you out of putting on weight

Try to cut down on foods high in fats and sugar

Stay motivated to lose weight

Slow weight loss is the safest and most effective.[one to one and half pound per week]

Reducing calories intake by 300 per day and increasing the physical activity to burn 200 calories per day results in weight loss of 400 Gms per week.

Regular aerobic exercise like brisk walking, jogging or swimming, is a key factor in achieving permanent weight loss and improving health

Incorporate few simple measures to burn calories effectively. Like- taking an after dinner walk, using stairs instead of escalators or elevators, parking the car farther away to have a longer walk etc

Fry or sauté foods in a non-stick cook wear with low-calorie fat.

Baking or boiling is recommended instead of frying.

Eat high-fiber foods.

Use sugar substitutes while sweetening foods and beverages
