Three Easy Ways to Lose Weight

I swear by these strategies from my new book, Slim for Life. Trust me, they work.

1. Wreak havoc

Next time you're full but can't stop picking at your plate, wreck it. Don't put it in the garbage; we've all had that Miranda moment from Sex and the City where we'll still eat it out of the trash. Pour salt on it or put your drink on it, just ruin it. People have issues with wrecking food because it feels wrong, but let's get real: It's not going to children starving in Africa, it's going to the trash. It's not worth cellulite, muffin top, cancer, or heart disease.

2. Amp it up

Drinking an espresso or 200 milligrams of caffeine 45 minutes before you exercise is a known performance enhancer. You will work out harder, you will work out longer, and it helps your body to mobilize fat stores. People love to demonize me for suggesting this, but caffeine has proven health benefits and will dramatically increase your burn. You want to lose weight? This is it.

3. Get out of your chair

Simply standing up burns one and a half times more calories than sitting. If you think about how that adds up over the course of a week, a month, a year, it's a big deal. And there's no excuse not to do it. So whether you're waiting at the doctor's office or making a phone call at work, stand up!

Good advices by Jillian Michaels.. I wanted to get rid of my belly fat, lose weight and have a slim, fit, healthy body, following program worked perfectly well with me : Program has a software to find the most suitable nutrition and exercise plans, thousands of healthy recipes to follow. You do not need to follow diets with starving, no need to do heavy exercises. I highly recommend it.
