Have you been struggling to lose weight? What if I told you that there are some simple things that you could be doing now that would greatly increase your chance for weight loss success? Well there is!

Here are 4 weight loss secrets that if you knew when you started could have made you more successful in your bid for weight lose:

  1. Eat more, especially for breakfast

    Skipping the “most important meal of the day” may seem like an easy way to cut calories, but in fact breakfast is one of the biggest secrets to weight loss. A fiber-rich breakfast composed of quality; whole foods like oats, fruit, and yogurt can mean the difference between a starving body, and an energized day. Eating breakfast not only allows you to get a good start on your day, but it kick starts your metabolism early on and keeps it going through the day. A solid breakfast also helps you not overeat at other meals.

  2. Protein, please.

    Everyone knows that protein can play an important role in muscle gaining efforts, but not many people know that it can also have a significant impact on weight loss as well. Supplementing your low calorie diet with high calorie pure protein will lead to muscle growth and therefore a faster metabolism. Protein supplements vary drastically from pure whey to carbohydrate loaded protein shakes that are formulated for weight gain. Shopping with a reputable source like will ensure that you are getting the most appropriate protein for your personal needs.

  3. A little goes a long way

    Most newbie dieters feel like that if you can’t dedicate an hour of every day to working out that doing it all is not worth your time. Well, this is completely false and another great secret. Even 10 minutes of exercise a day can in the long run help you shed pounds. By not getting discouraged every time you are too tired to trek to the gym, and just doing some living room aerobics can really keep your metabolism and weight loss efforts on track.

  4. Relax

    If you’re stressed out about gaining weight or sticking to a diet, likelihood is you’re doing yourself in. Intense stress causes your body to release a hormone known as Cortisol at unusual times throughout the day, which causes the body to retain fat around your belly. By seeking out relaxing activities throughout the day like a bubble bath before bed, morning meditation, or a quiet evening walk, you can help keep your stress levels in check and continue losing weight.

Weight loss is tough - learn from what has worked for others. It’s not too late to apply these four secrets today.

Good luck!

These are good tips.
Another good tip. Do not eat until you are feel full. The food takes a while to digest so you start to feel full about half an hour after intake of food.
