How to lose weight

Although many people who lose weight may eventually gain it back, it's a myth that this happens to everyone. The successful weight losers report four common behaviors: they eat a low-calorie, low-fat diet, they monitor themselves by weighing in frequently, they are very physically active, and they eat breakfast.
The first step to weight loss is setting a realistic goal.To reach your goal safely, plan to lose weight gradually.
There are some things that you need to do: change your eating habits, increase your physical activity and watch out for the number of calories.
Here are some tips for eating out and staying slim:
* Ask for nutrition information (for example, calories, saturated fat, and sodium) before you order when eating out.
* Choose foods that are steamed, broiled, baked, roasted, poached, or stir-fried, but not deep-fat fried.
* Share food, such as a main dish or dessert, with your dining partner.
* Take part of the food home with you and refrigerate immediately. You may want to ask for a take-home container when the meal arrives. Spoon half the meal into it, so you're more likely to eat only what's left on your plate.
* Request your meal to be served without gravy, sauces, butter or margarine.
* Ask for salad dressing on the side, and use only small amounts of full-fat dressings.
