Try to replace the sugary drinks you normally drink with water. Rather than reach for a soda, a packaged juice, or another cup of coffee, sip water instead. Carry a water bottle with you so you always have water on hand. Try to have more water throughout the day remove most other drinks. Add fresh sliced lemon or cucumber to your water to make it more flavorful.Staying fully hydrated while eating a healthy diet, exercising, and getting enough rest will help you lose weight and keep it off, but simply drinking more water and making no other changes is not enough to burn off fat.
Follow a healthy meal plan. Have three meals a day, preferably at the same time every day. Try not to skip any meals, as this can throw off your appetite and cause you to reach for unhealthy foods. Plan to eat every 4-5 hours so your body has enough nutrients and energy. Have a good breakfast, a larger lunch, and a nutrient-rich dinner every day so you can establish an eating routine. For example, you may have breakfast at 8 or 9 am, lunch at 12 or 1 pm, and dinner at around 5 or 6 pm every day. Search for new recipes that focus on clean eating online by looking at healthy food blogs and websites. Go for healthy, clean meals when you eat out. Look for options on the menu like a salad with whole grains and vegetables or a sandwich on whole-wheat bread. Substitute fries on the side for a salad or a healthier option. Try to stick to clean eating as much as you can when you eat out so your diet does not get thrown off.Have healthy snacks once a week to start. Try having at least 1 healthy snack a week and then gradually, replace most of your unhealthy snacks with healthy ones.

The recommended amount of calories a day is 2,000-2,400 for women, and 2,600-3,000 for men. Subtract 250-500 from your recommended daily amount and focus on eating that many calories every day.Your calorie intake may fluctuate based on your age and lifestyle. Athletes need more calories than people who do not exercise. Use a calorie tracker on your smartphone to see how many calories you’re consuming.Changing your diet has a big effect on weight loss but exercise needs to be worked into your daily life. Clean eating is a great way to maintain a healthy weight, but it should be complemented with exercise.

Exercising can help you maintain a healthy lifestyle overall and promote weight loss. As you exercise, you should notice that eating clean is helping you feel strong and energetic for your workout.
