1. Eat all the time  

When you cut back on your caloric intake, your body will start to send out endless chemical and psychological messages to you trying to get you to eat more – which is why you always feel so hungry and miserable when you try to diet. Eating small, frequent healthy meals and snacks helps stave off binges.

2. Con your cravings  

Our sensory memories make it so that we crave fats and sugars. Conning your cravings with healthy low fat and low sugar imposters will reduce the likelihood that you will make unhealthy choices.

3. Repeat what you eat  

Having the same well-planned, healthy staple for at least one meal every day can often take away the danger of choice.

4. Forego the fat  

It takes more than twice the energy for your body to burn off fat than it does for it to burn off carbohydrates or protein. If you want a trimmer body, trim the fat in your diet.

5. Trash the temptations  

If temptations are within arm's reach, resolve might as well be on another planet. Get rid of everything unhealthy in your house and workplace.

6: Don't let fast food be your failing  

One study concluded that the high fat levels in fast food cause a dependency reaction in your body similar to heroin addiction. Grit it out and go cold turkey. The cravings will lessen over time.

7. Stop thinking of exercise as a four letter word  

When you cut back on your caloric intake, your metabolism will slow down. The only thing that you can do to increase your metabolism is to exercise; and it will stay elevated for up to 24 hours after you stop exercising. The key is to find something that you enjoy. If it feels like torture, you will never stick with it.

8: Throw away your calendar  

Ask yourself, when you have lost weight quickly before, did you keep it off? Stop trying to achieve those massive weekly weight losses like you see on network T.V. Aim to lose 1-2 pounds a week and your odds of keeping it off will increase tremendously.

9: Make changes in two-week baby steps  

Make just one or two big changes at a time in the way you eat or in implementing an exercise plan and then give your body time to adjust. When the last changes you make start to become second nature, throw another change or two into the mix.

10: Stop striving for mass-media promoted body ideals  

Shaq is never going to be a professional race horse jockey and a professional race horse jockey is never going to play in the NBA. Most of us will never have bodies like supermodels, but we can all be happier, healthier and imperfectly fit.
