This article will give you some useful tips which makes you motivated and to carry on the dieting process.

  • Go to a doctor have a physical checkup. The doctor will tell your body condition. Ask him whether your body will accept the rigorous dieting. If the weight gain is due to some hormonal deficiency means doctor will inform you. The dieting will be effective to the most only when it is because of over eating.

  • Consult a dietitian and asks him for the diet plan. Tell your needs to him, how rigorous your diet must be and also tell him what will adopt your body. If you have already done dieting, tell him its advantages and disadvantages.
  • Set an achievable target. All will think that to cut their body shape. But it is not possible as such. Place a picture how you want to be and place at present picture. This will motivate you to a very high extent.
  • Exercise is the most important thing. You must do proper exercise daily. Dieting alone doesn’t reduce the weight; diet with proper exercise is the best way to lose your weight in short period of time. Do exercise based on the parts which you want to reduce. Always do cardio exercises which will increase the oxygen flow in your body.
  • Keenly monitor your progress. Whenever you reach a milestone, appreciate yourself for the achievement. This is the good way to motivate you. Make note of the weight loss during the span and prepare a chart. The chart will show your progress.
  • Using a calorie meter, check how much calories you have burnt per day and note it down. Dieting doesn’t mean starving, keep this in mind. While dieting you can have three meals a day but the question is, what type of food you are eating? Is it healthy one? Are the foods giving you less calories? Burn many calories to stay healthy. Calories takes must be equal to calories burnt. So nothing will accumulate in your body.
  • Give yourself a gift whenever you reach a milestone. Especially, new clothes with smaller size than the last one.

Try to have support from your friends and family. If they are not motivating put away their words and carry on your process.
