Drinking at least 10 glasses of water is a must. Start your day with a glass of luke warm water and add a few drops of lime juice and honey to it. Don’t be afraid of the honey as although it is sweet it does not have sugar and ha numerous medicinal properties that are great for a good digestion.

Depending on your daily routine see the time you can take out and which exercise you can accommodate during that time. It can be a walk, cycling, yoga, treadmill or whichever form of exercise that suits your body and schedule. If due to some reason you are unable to take out time in the morning, try to shift your exercise in the evening.

- Don’t procrastinate: Always remember the more you postpone weight-loss the harder it would be for you to lose those extra pounds. If you feel you are too tied-up to start exercising today you are sure to feel so even after 1 year. The initiative to lose weight has to come as soon as possible. The sooner you work on those extra pounds the faster you would lose them.
- Don’t start any drastic diet: It is not sensible to start any drastic diets that ask you eat abnormally low quantities of food or to completely remove any item from your diet. The problem with such diets is that they are not healthy for the body and the minute you stop these diets your body does a rebound and the weight comes back faster than you could have ever imagined. Completely removing any food from your diet would increase your craving for the food and you may end up binge eating at the first given opportunity, wasting all the effort you had put in for such a long time.
