Inspiration of the article:
There are a lot of weight loss articles out there that delve into complex issues like calorie counting and complex carbs versus simple carbs and after a while all the detailed, and often conflicting, information can leave your head spinning round and around.
These articles can make the whole weight loss process seem so overwhelming that many people just give up and don’t even try to lose weight.
But having excess weight is bad for your health. It can lead to an increase in blood pressure, which in turn increases your chances of suffering a stroke. It can also lead to high blood sugar (diabetes), high cholesterol and heart disease.
Here are seven simple things you can do to start losing weight. They are easy to do. They take no complex thought, no massive amounts of willpower. Anybody can do them.
Then once the weight starts coming off, maybe you will have the motivation to make even bigger changes that can lead to even more weight loss.
Most people these days eat their meals from in front of the TV or computer. This is bad because you can go into a trance of sorts while watching the TV or computer and end up eating way more than you would have at the table.
It actually takes a while for the stomach to signal your brain that it is full. By eating slower you will consume less “unnecessary” food. Eat slowly, chew thoroughly and really taste your food.
Eat too fast and you will strain your stomach and intestines and possibly create uncomfortable indigestion, bloating and cramps.
Drinking more than 4 ounces of liquid with a meal dilutes stomach acid and digestive enzymes causing you not to digest your food well. Instead drink water 30 minutes before a meal – this will also help you feel fuller so you will eat less.
Note: If you want to try a new strategy to approach weight loss, Liz Swann Miller invented the new Red Tea Detox program proven to improve weight loss and reduce weight by burning unneeded pounds from our bodies---switching from carbohydrate fat burning to high-octane burning.
It is based on over a decade of medical research revolving around the cleansing of toxins and the benefits of African red tea. However, there is much more to it than that. The program is very thorough and divided into three parts that help each other: diet, exercise, and mindset. Go there now or follow the button below. I WANT TO TRY

If you eat while you are tired, upset or stressed can lead to improper digestion of food which can lead to more fat being stored on your body.
That’s right, don’t save your heaviest meal for dinner, instead eat a heavier lunch and a light meal at dinner time. This will allow you to more easily digest your food in the evening – having digestion finished before going to bed allows for optimum cellular cleansing and rebuilding during sleep.
Start eating more smaller meals and less big meals. Eating smaller meals frequently throughout the day helps keep blood sugar levels steady and ensures that you have good energy all day long.
Ask yourself if you are really hungry, or have a glass of water to see if you are thirsty instead of hungry. Many hunger pangs are caused by thirst instead of actual hunger. By listening to your body and eating when you are really hungry instead of when it’s the time that you normally eat can lead to significant weight loss.
