Trying to lose weight and get fitter? Want faster and better results? Here are some tips.

1. Eat on time
It’s important to be consistent with your mealtimes. DO NOT eat breakfast at 9am on one day and at 11am on another. Your body will be expecting nutrition, and if it doesn’t get it on time, it will go into starvation mode and start storing fat.

2. Start your meal with a salad

When your first course is a salad filled with healthy veggies, you’re less likely to overindulge with your main course and dessert.

 3. Acknowledge your progress

Acknowledge your victories like clothes fitting better and more energy, and use that to motivate yourself to get fitter.

4. Stock up on healthy snacks
Thoroughly check your kitchen to remove all unhealthy snacks. Replace them with healthier snacking options like fruits, nuts and dried fruits.

5. Get a buddy

The best way to stick to an exercise plan or make sure you eat right is to team up with a friend, colleague or cyber pal. That way, both can keep a check on each other and motivate one another to stay on course.

6. Eliminate sugar completely
Sugar is one of the chief contributors to weight gain. So cut it out completely. Use honey, maple syrup or healthier fruit sugars to make your coffee or tea sweet. Satisfy your sugar craving with a fruit, or a low-cal chewing gum.

7. Do more cardio
You already know that the key to losing weight is burning more calories than you eat. Cardio is an effective way to burn more calories, and you may not have to cut many calories from your diet.

8. When eating out, order smaller portions: 
Many restaurants serve half portions of their entree dishes. Either order those, or share your order with a friend. This way you’ll eat less, and avoid unnecessary calories.
