Part-2 - Drink two to three liters of water everyday. Drink plenty of water because runners often get dry mouths as they run plus you want to stay hydrated, all the cells of the body need water to function properly. Drinking other liquids also provides your body with a source of water, but note that diuretics cause your body to expel water,by urinating frequently. Diuretics include caffeinated drinks (coffee, tea and soda) and alcohol.

Stay away from sugary drinks, especially sodas. All those colas and fizzy drinks are filled with plenty of sugar and sugar means calories. The more you avoid these sugary drinks, the better for it is for you. So if you must drink sodas, then stick to diet sodas.

Always make a habit to eat only when you are hungry. A lot of people are tempted to eat when food is in front of them .Party is often use as an excuse to stuff our selves. We should be aware of the effect of a whole week of dieting can be ruined by just enjoying one day’s party food. When someone offers you something to eat do not refuse it completely just break of a nibble or just take a little bit so that you tend to mind your manners and at the same time can watch your diet.

Smoking should be avoided if you want to loss weight. Smoking as such may not contribute or affect weight loss but smoking can lead to other conditions like erratic eating habits and depending excessively on things like coffee.

Have your friend walk around the neighbourhood with you, wash the car or maybe even do some gardening instead of going to the beach and doing nothing all day, choose to do something more exciting that helps you keep fit, healthy and looking good at the same time. Look for opportunities to use your body that focuses on slowly developing good life long food and exercise habits. There is no set time frame for results; dieters should take each step of the program at their own pace. Choose a nutritionally balanced plan with enough calories to keep you from feeling famished.

Walking is always a good form of exercise to start with. We use many muscles while walking. Walking helps relationships flourish, makes one forget worries, and eases the mind. It stimulates the brain, aids digestion, and helps the blood flow evenly throughout the body. Walking at a moderate pace yields longer workouts with less soreness - leading to more miles and more fat worked off on a regular basis. High intensity walks on alternate days helps condition your body. Walking is a great form of exercise. Other exercise options includes attending local gyms, community pools, and exercise classes.
