Counting Calories Can Help Reduce Weight
if exercising is not letting you lose enough weight, then try to work out on you diet.
Here are a few tips to cut down on the extra calories:
Cut portions in half at each meal, and save the remainder for the next day.

Read the labels on every-thing you eat so that you know exactly how many calories are in a single serving (and how big a single serving really is. For example, you may look at the calories on a loaf of bread and find that the 150 calories listed is for a single slice alone, not the two you are using to create a sandwich. Eat only a single serving to cut calories.

Most of your extra calories come from those foods you can't stop yourself from eating once you start. Pick out two offending items (or categories) and allow yourself to eat them only two days per week. For example, you could abstain from chocolate and alcohol except any two days.

Avoid refined sugar, fats, hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils, and products that are heavily processed with chemicals and preservatives you can't even pronounce. If the food contains an ingredient with more than three syllables, it may not be good for you.

Trade in fatty foods for those comprised of complex carbohydrates and protein.

Cook at home rather than going out. You'll save money and get to control the content of your food.

With a little education and some slight changes, you might not even notice you've given anything up at all.
