Do your best to ensure you're not eating after 7 o'clock at night. You're more likely to make unhealthy choices and less likely to sleep as well after a late meal.

Weight Loss Tip: Pass on drinking soda / pop. You'll be amazed by how much weight you drop by simply switching to water.

Weight Loss Tip: Do your grocery shopping with a list and a time limit; that way, you're less likely to stray into the processed foods section.

Don't confuse thirst with hunger. Drink a glass of water when you feel hungry to see if that's what you're really craving.

Get your Zzzzzs. Sleep deprivation alters levels of hormones in the body that regulate hunger, causing an increase in appetite.

Boxed foods normally contain refined sugar and / or some fructose corn syrup derivative. This is very simple sugar that turns to fat very quickly after you eat it. Better to stay around the periphery of the supermarket.

Overweight is defined as having excess body weight for a particular height from fat, muscle, bone, water, or a combination of these factors. Obesity is defined as having excess body fat.
