What Is a Good Way to Lose Weight?

To lose weight, burn more calories than are eaten, exercise and limit salt in the diet, as stated by WebMD. Burning 500 calories more each day than are eaten results in a weight loss of 1 to 2 pounds in a week's time.

Eat more vegetables to help satiate the appetite and feel fuller, as recommended by WebMD. Drinking plenty of water can help provide a feeling of fullness, and removing tempting foods from the home can eliminate temptation and potential cheating. Eating only while seated at a table and only from a plate can reduce so-called "grazing," which is mindless eating. A daily diet journal can also help.
