are losing those unwanted fabs on your
belly and thighs by skipping meals
.
But remember that this would not last
long
.
Your body cannot tolerate having
insufcient food to fuel the energy that
you use up everyday
.
If you get used to skipping one or two
meals a day, your stored calories will be
used up instead of the energy that should
have been provided by your meals

plan or program, stick to it and make

dieting rules

Exercise.
Leave your car if you are only going a
few blocks from home, take the stairs
instead of the elevator, jog, cycle or
skate

shedding pounds with these mundane
activities

It does not matter how much weight you
plan or need to lose
.
What is important is
that you set realistic goals for yourself
.
Go slow

If you have already lost 5 or 6

lose the next 5 pounds

Eat healthy, drink lots of water, have
enough sleep and exercise
