The most popular declarations are those where people say they are finally going to lose some weight. The problem is that right after these kinds of promises are made, they are usually broken for one reason or another. The good news is that the tips we have laid out for you here are easy enough that anyone who really wants to lose weight, is going to be able to stick to them. These don't require anyone going above and beyond, just stay nice and diligent about what they are eating, when and how.

1. Drink plenty of water
There is a reason why this always tops the list of any article talking about being healthier and losing weight. Most people don't drink as much water as they should. While staying hydrated is important, studies show that drinking water can also boost metabolism between 24 and 30 percent for about an hour. This means to make sure and drink water before you eat. Not during, but about a half hour before you eat.


2. Drink black coffee
Not only does the caffeine in coffee boost your metabolism, but it has a ton of antioxidants that are going to help your immune system. Stay healthy and you'll keep working out.

3. Use Coconut oil rather than vegetable oil
While all oils are going to have fat content, coconut oils have very special fats that can help in the burning of your own fats. As with all things like this, knowing when and how much is key.

4. Eat six small meals
People tend to starve themselves when they are trying to lose weight. That or they only have one meal throughout the day and then think they can go with a bigger meal at night. Eating six small meals throughout the day keeps your metabolism moving.

5. Brush your teeth after dinner
This isn't technically a food thing, but rather will help you stop eating. Brushing your teeth is basically closing the door on eating more.

6. Load up on spicy foods
Spicy foods tend to have Capsaicin which is an ingredient that will boost metabolism. This little tidbit can also make sure that your appetite is a bit smaller. 

7. Eat fiber
Eating fiber is good for you and your food circulation but there are some studies that show you can feel a bit fuller when you have a meal that is full of fiber.

8. Go heavy on the fish
If you're someone who likes to have meat in every meal, try something like Salmon more often. Low fat and has plenty of Omega 3s means that this is a healthy choice that will help you lose some pounds.

9. Eat some protein before bed
If you're not buying into the brush your teeth after dinner because you want a snack, then go with something high protein. This will be easier for your body to break down while you're sleeping.

10. Don't drink calories
We all know that high sugar drinks are bad, but they're quite a bit worse than we thought. Calories we drink are worse than what we eat according to new studies. This means it's better to eat snickers than drink a coke.

If you cannot follow all these tips, make sure you follow a few of them. Do these things and you will likely see a loss in weight.
