Weight loss tips for today's generation 'Male'

If you’re concerned about your weight, you’re not alone. Some guys know they're carrying around a few extra pounds or more. But others aren’t sure. You want to look good and feel your best, and you've heard about the relationship between weight and health. But just what does it mean to be overweight? And what can you do about it?

If you haven’t had a recent physical examination, you should have one before trying to lose a significant amount of weight or starting a new exercise program if you aren't already active. But first, do a little self-assessment. Take your clothes off and stand in front of a full-length mirror. Take a good look at yourself. Be honest. Do you see fat? If you aren’t sure, try this. Tighten up your abs. Really tight. Now pat yourself on the stomach.
How Do I Lose Weight? 

Too many of us think "diet" instead of weight management and healthy living. Unfortunately, quick weight-loss regimens and special diets often fail. It's hard to stick with a diet that severely limits our choices because most of us like to eat! And we need a well-balanced variety of foods to have the energy to keep going and maintain health. 

That’s why you should focus your efforts on gradual improvement in eating habits and lifestyle for lasting results. Here’s some advice to start you off: eat less and move more. Easier said than done? Just eliminating a few high-calorie food items daily (or even weekly!) and getting more exercise will produce results. Better fitness doesn’t have to mean only carrot sticks and a treadmill. 

1) Most alcoholic drinks are high in calories with little nutrition, so cut back. 

2) For a quick breakfast on the run, skip the donuts or muffins. Try a low-calorie breakfast bar, an apple or two, and some fruity yogurt. How about a nice slice of leftover chicken breast for some protein? or a bagel with a few slices of cheese? Bring a banana or two and some nuts for a mid-morning snack. 

3) Instead of potato or corn chips as a crunchy snack, try pretzels or plain popcorn. But if popcorn without butter sounds like the equivalent of cardboard, try sprinkling a little cheese and black pepper on it. Or, instead of drizzling butter on top, try swirling the popped kernels in a small amount of butter or margarine before popping. You'll get a lot of flavor on each piece of popcorn instead of a lot of fat.
