Keep track of your calorie intake. In order to lose weight, you have to burn more calories than you consume. Keep a notebook listing your calorie intake.
Eat more often
Eat five to six small meals per day, rather than two or three large ones. This will prevent overeating at mealtimes as well as regulate your metabolism.
Eat more fat-burning foods, such as whole grains, fruits and vegetables, seafood, and egg whites.
Eat less salt
Maintain a low-sodium diet. Salt makes the body retain water, making stomachs bloated.
