My best weight loss idea is controlling your fat intake. This is the main focus to losing weight. Because everyone is different, your daily fat intake is different. Your diet should be adjusted based on how physically active you are. For example, someone who's work does not involve much physical activity should eat less fat than those who do. When adjusting your eating habits it should be done slowly. Always read the nutrition facts. Start with 9 grams of fat per serving and drop 1 gram, once a week until you get down to 0. If you do it at a slow pace your more likely to stick with it. Then your brain will be used to it and will never know the difference. The one mistake allot of people make when trying to lose weight is temporary dieting. That's fine if you only want to lose weight temporarily. In order to lose weight permanently you must make permanent adjustments. This worked for me. I lost 60 pounds in 6 months. I went from a size 18 to a size 4.
