In diets that you have tried before that were only focused on fat loss you did things like working out every day - even twice a day sometimes and eating in a way that you normally never would have done. This type of change is to quick and unrealistic. Even though doing those things may provide results - you aren't going to live like that for ever which means you will go back to your old diet and begin gaining unwanted fat.

Choose food from lean meat, fruits and vegetables but only ones that you know you would like to eat. These is no sense in forcing your self to eat foods you hate. Also many diets leave us feeling very hungry. Try spreading your calories through out the day. There are many five to six meal a day plans that work great for fat loss.

For activity start off small. Try playing a sport you like on a weekly basis or you can go for a walk around your neighborhood a couple of times a week.
