Kick your weight loss efforts into high gear with these 5 easy rules.

Trying to shed a few pounds (and keep them off)? Do it the right way – these tips can help.

Rule #1: Eat!
Taking in fewer calories will promote weight loss, but cutting back too much can bring your metabolism to a screeching halt. Slow and steady is best: reduce your current intake by about 500 calories per day to lose one a pound per week.

Rule #2: Move
Regular physical activity keeps your metabolism working at a higher rate. Increasing your lean body mass also means you’ll burn calories more efficiently. Try to get in at least 30 minutes of physical activity each day.

Rule #3: Unplug
Research supports that eating meals while distracted by the computer, phone or TV can lead to overeating. Take a break! Enjoy food with nothing but family conversation or some peace and quiet.

Rule #4: Hydrate
Lack of fluids can lead to dehydration and fatigue. Stick to primarily calorie-free drinks to help with weight loss.

Rule #5: Get Some ZZZZZZ’s
Sleep deprivation can trigger increased activity of the hormones that promote eating. To make matters worse, it’s harder to make healthy choices when you’re tired. Avoid late-night munchies (those calories add up fast) by closing the kitchen and hitting the pillow.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this …

    Лично мой опыт такой. Впервые в моей жизни, сказав человеку по телефону обидные слова, я тут же перезвонила ему и попросила прощения, потому что почувствовала его боль как свою. Повстречав того единственного, мне захотелось ради него стать другой, меняться и внутренне и внешне, т.е. искоренять свой эгоизм. А не переделывать его под себя, создавать то, что бы я хотела в нём видеть (модную причёску, хорошего бизнесмена, галантное и безупречное поведение и т.д. и т.п.). Не говорить: «вот это мне в нём нравится, и это я принимаю, а это нет», и начинать в мягкой форме давать нравоучения. Зачем лепить выдуманный идеал, чтобы потом с ужасом узнать, что это не тот?
