To jump-start you on your road to weight loss and a healthier life, reduce portion size by dividing your 8-inch (no larger) dinner plate into four sections. One fourth gets whole grains, one half gets veggies and one fourth gets lean protein. No skyscrapers! Also check out these simple tips on how to burn fat faster:
1. Get EGCG. Green tea's potent polyphenol zaps fat. Harness it with a 500 mg pill daily.
2. Move more. Enjoy a morning and afternoon walk. Get into chores. (Making the bed can burn 12 calories and vacuuming the living room can burn 25 calories.) Extra activity creates real weight loss.
3. Boost metabolism. Spice up food with chilies to burn more calories.
