The number one tip for you to start losing weight is to drink water. It really is simple and easy. Before, during and after each work out you can easily get in a glass or bottle of water. Before and after each meal you can easily drink a glass or bottle of water. All of this water is going to help get your body functioning properly, keep your body hydrated and help you to burn off the fat quicker as well.

Changing Your Plate

Changing your plate can be done in a couple of ways. First, you can literally change your plate. Choose a plate that is smaller. If you are limiting yourself to a serving or two, you will be getting less food which helps with weight loss. The other way you can change your plate is to make sure you change what you put on your plate. You should have about forty percent of the plate with protein and twenty percent grains. This is going to help you stay full after you finish your serving.

When you think of losing weight, you may envision that you need to jog or run a lot. However, most men who are trying to lose weight, don’t just want to lose weight. They also want to build up muscle. Jogging isn’t going to do both of these things for you, at least not very quickly. The faster way for you to lose weight and build muscle is through weight lifting.

Mindful Eating

Have you ever really ate mindfully? Think about this for a bit. Do you pay attention to each bite you put into your mouth or do you just chow it down as quickly as you can? Do you slowly chew your bites or do you eat fast? Are you paying attention to what you are eating and how much or do you eat while watching television or playing on your phone? You can tell the difference between these questions. Determine which ones would use your mind to eat and those are the ones you should be doing if you want to start losing weight.

Metabolic Conditioning

You want to lose weight and build muscle and you can do this. You should use metabolic conditioning. This can be done with a variety of exercises. The purpose of this type of conditioning is to burn off as many calories as you can while you are working out and after you finish the work out as well. Some ways you can do this is by doing full-body lifts in reps with moderate weight lifting. You will then combine that with appropriate tools for conditioning. You can talk to a trainer or look these appropriate tools up for your weight and height.

Eat Less

This one may seem like common sense but if you want to start losing weight just eat less. This doesn’t mean that you need to starve yourself. When you put the food onto your plate, you generally think that you are going to eat it all. What if you were to leave one bite of each of the types of food on your plate? This may not sound like a lot less calories or fat but when you add it up over the course of days or weeks it will be.

Think about these easy ways to start losing weight and start doing them. It is easy and simple and you can do it.
