Obviously diet and exercise are the best ways to consistently lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. However, if you're just starting out, or just want to lose a couple quick pounds, there's a few things you can do right away.
1. Purge All The Bad

Sounds crazy, but its been proven that placing your food on a smaller plate will "trick" you into eating less.
3. A Simple Breakfast
Its well known that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This is because it energizes and kickstarts your metabolism at the beginning of the day.

4. Almonds And Water, Walnuts And Water
