1.Start off slow.
“Don’t jump into a fad diet or heavy exercise. I lost over 20 kilograms and started by drinking water instead of sugary drinks and walking more,” wrote user KevinW.
2. Say no to sugar.
“The biggest improvement for me (about 45 kilograms lost) was cutting out the majority of sugar, especially processed sugar, which is in everything these days,” wrote one user.
“Soft drinks are huge and same with fast food. There’s six grams of sugar in a Big Mac BUN alone.”
3. Drink a glass of water in the morning.
“When you wake up in the morning drink a large glass of water and spend 10 minutes just stretching before you start getting ready for work/school/whatever,” wrote user Gold8erry.
