Break FastEarly in the Morning: Never skip breakfast. You have high chances of overeating later, if you skip the important meal of the day. Make a healthy and balanced breakfast that keeps you energized and feels full for long time.

Mid Morning: Aim to lose 1 pound a week, which means, you should reduce your daily intake by 300 calories and you should burn 200-300 calories per day for a week or more. Add more number minutes of exercise per day and add an extra day to your exercise schedule. For instance, if you are working out for 3 days for 45 minutes; try increasing your schedule to 4 days of 1 hour each.

Noon: Pack or eat lunch that is filled with good amount of vegetables and protein. As with breakfast, never skip lunch. Your body’s metabolism needs energy every two hours.

Evening: Prepare healthy and light dinner that consists of herbs, vegetables and grains. Healthy meal need not always be complicated. Look for simple dinner menus that can keep you going.

Post Dinner: Aim to walk for 15-20 minutes after dinner. This is good to burn calories as well as give you a sound sleep at night.

Night: This is the vulnerable time when you may feel like eating out of boredom, exhaustion or emotion. Stick to a hobby that will distract you of such thoughts or simply hit the bed early. A good sleep is an effective way to burn calories. Inadequate sleep leads to unnecessary weight gain. Keep such unwanted calories gain with better and sound sleep.
