Winter is a great excuse to hide those few extra kilos under more layers of clothing but carrying extra weight is not good for your health. Here are five simple weight-loss tips which will help you shed the extra kilos.

Simple weight loss tips:
1. Eat more protein. Commonly found in red meats, leafy greens, nuts and soya products, protein keeps you feeling “full” more than any other ingredient.

2. Try not to eat outside of meal times. Ask yourself “Am I really hungry”. Take a drink of water and if you’re still having hunger pangs, try a low-carb snack such as nuts or fruit.

3. It is essential to drink ample amounts of water. Keep your system flushed and hunger at bay.

4. If and when you start a diet don’t succumb in a moment of weakness and “binge”. Instead, try progressively training your appetite with healthy snacks, such as vegetable sticks and dips as opposed to fast food, chips and cheese.

5. Be sneaky and try to trick yourself. Portion control is essential. When eating in a restaurant, share a large main meal with a friend, and eat slowly and savour your food, to allow your digestive system to help control your appetite. Another trick is using smaller bowls and filling them with a normal or smaller portion, which can help you feel fuller.

Have you battled with the bulge and won? What are your top tips for losing weight?

    It's always about weight loss, isn't it? Never 'prevent weight gain'. Do it now - worry about the consequences later.

    Any tips for those of us who have been or are on cortisone medication or injections - as I understand cortisone is a weight gain problem, and its certainly been that way for me.
    Any help would be welcomed.

    Troubadour, my understanding of cortisone is that it traps fluid in the body (I'm not sure if it is between cells or in the cell)but I know it causes 'moon face' too.Some people get as high as kites on it but I get stroppy and could pick a fight in a vacant room. I was recently prescribed cortisone for inflammation behind the eyes and I refused it as I do not like the side effects. I have been threatened with a schedule 2 whilest on cortisone. So as far as I know there is no help for the weight gain with cortisone. I shall watch with great interest incase someone does know the solution to cortisone weight gain.

    I was gaining weight with cortisone injections that I was getting at a hospital. I mentioned this problem to my doctor. Firstly he said that he did not believe that the cortisone injections I was having caused weight gain, but I knew that they were causing it because I had a stable weight for 30 years before this. He said that the only solution was to be extra vigilant with what I was eating.

    When I stopped having the injections the weight gain stopped, but I am still trying to lose the 5kg that I gained. I know that some people gain a lot more than this on cortisone, so I tend to think that because I am a vegetarian that it was not worse for me. I normally stick to wholegrain and complex carbs and don't gain weight. Being on cortisone made me want to eat refined and sugary carbs, so I guess if I had seen it coming and been more mindful to avoid that, it could have helped.

    Suze, these tips can also be used to prevent weight gain. Sensible eating and calorie control are commonly used in the group I belong to to stabilize weight after weight loss has been completed. Follow the same methods to not put on weight in the first place.

    Your stomach is about the size of your own closed fist, if you're eating more than that for a single meal then you're eating too much.

    It's not rocket science.
    For weight control (lose, maintain, gain) you need
    - Balanced nutrition
    - Portion control
    - Exercise

    I have used Herbal life to provide the first two and with moderate exercise I have lost over 10kg. Other people have used other methods with similar success.

    you took the words offa my fingers !!!

    excess calories in = FAT STORED SOMEWHERE

    I used a 'soup every two main meals' and no sugar or cheese [well sometimes] approach and lost 10 kg in 12 months - still use it as another 5 kg to come off.
    Cholesterol etc have all significantly reduced. In addition its all about 'training' the mind and body [stomach] to just get used to it [and enjoy it] otherwise why start ?

    Strike me lucky. There are that many T.V. adds and "Bloody" cooking shows, who are on the band wagon, now about diets. No wonder the poor women don't know what they are doing. Blokes don't worry about it. They just drink rum and diet Pepsi Max, which cuts down your appetite, instead of beer. By the way. Rum won't harm your liver. If you're interested, just ask and I will tell you how to prove it.

    Some brands of Diet Cola can cause kidney damage, even cancer on your kidney.
    I am not stating the brand for obvious legal reasons but It happened to a work colleague of mine. When she saw a specialist the 1st question was "do you drink diet ......." He calls it black death". A few months later a friend succumbed to the same problem and also had a kidney removed.

    Particolor, the trouble is diabetics think Diet Cola is a better alternative. They are not warned of the dangers. Some are simply told to drink "diet" drinks instead of normal. Both people drank the same brand - you notice it didn't name it !! There are a lot of foods and drinks that if we really knew what was in them we would never touch them, let alone consume them. Some Market gardeners don't even eat their produce that they grow for sale. THey have to "push them along" with fertilisers etc. to sell them quickly for their business to be viable. I know of one noorth of Adelaide that doesn't. They grown their own at the front of their yard.

    I have become an "expert" on the reasons we gain weight, the reasons we lose weight, different diets, lifestyles, exercise regimes, the food industry, recent research into obesity, bariatric surgery, "good" foods, "bad" foods - you name it, I've checked it out. I have, lost, gained, maintained - at various times since I was about twelve years of age.

    My family are all short(ish), reasonably active, and tending toward being plump/fat - no matter what we do. It requires CONSTANT and almost obsessive planning and discipline over the long term to just stay healthy.

    At present, I am successfully losing weight by doing the dietician planned, home delivered, "Lite n Easy" program. I successfully lost weight some years ago using their programs. The main advantages for me are:- not having to plan or make each meal, re-learning portion control, no waste food, and less temptations (less shopping expeditions). Financially, I think I am better off - and there are no contracts. I find it hard to eat everything they provide, so am never hungry.

    Please note - I have no connection with "Lite n Easy" (except as a customer) - and I am not suggesting that this is the best or only way for every person. It suits my personality and circumstances.

    I have just about hit the 30kg off....on Low Carbs....so good, so easy to do. Stick under 50g of carbs a day (I do 24g/ 8g per meal) and you will lose. Cheat and it will not work, but get back to it and it's magic...just watch the numbers on the scales go down 100's of grams a day. And you can eat so many things like cream and bacon that you would never think you would have on a diet...and just watch the kg drop off. Forget lofat...doesn't work. Low Carb is so much easier....never eaten so much.

    Low carb works for many people. The late Dr Atkin's was the first to promote low carb - with some people achieving spectacular results. He advised eating unrestricted fats and meats - with an extremely low carb intake (especially in the "induction" phase).

    The downside (for some people) was "ketone breath", higher cholesterol, constipation, saggy skin, and kidney problems. If you do this diet, it is vital that you are checked regularly by your doctor.

    It has now been found that increased protein reduces appetite and uses more calories to process - so, combined with a low carb intake, weight loss can be rapid. it is not necessary to do the high fat Atkin's version. There are many other low carb diets since Atkins.

    Yes, Pardelope, you are right with the side effects, if you don't eat the fat constipation problem is severe. I didn't have kidney problems but severe migraines.
    My cholestoral reading more than doubled in 6 weeks. It is basically the same as the Paleo Diet. I was put on it because although my blood sugar level was in the middle of normal range I make too much insulin. However I wasn't told their are levels in the diet and that you should only stay on the first stage for an absolute maximum of 6 weeks. I was given the 1st stage as a permanent diet.

    And don't forget that the 'late Dr Atkins' died with a history of congestive heart failure and hypertension.

    I would suggest that the success of the diet lies mainly in the fact that if you give up most 'carbs' you are giving up bread, breakfast cereals, cakes, biscuits, pies, pasta (and therefore the heavy sauces that go with it), rice, other grains and not replacing then with anything. An increase in leafy greens and there you go instant calorie reduction and hence weight loss. After all, although fat is not actively reduced, who seriously would tuck into a carton of cream instead of yogurt for example or gorge on 200gms of salami or eat butter by the teaspoon because you have no bread to put it on?

    I dont drink any soft drinks...do not fancy them but Coke is one of the worst as it leaches the calcium out of your bones and it puts on weight due to the sugar. I see where they are now going to use Stevia in lieu of sugar ...still would not drink it.

    yes, paricolor, and what it does to the paint on a car too. It is as good as brake fluid. Never sit a bottle on a car anywhere in case a little has run down the side of the container - I can guarantee you, goodbye paint - hello rust. Warn the mechanics who service your vehicles too. Witnessed that and saw the results very soon afterwards.
    Lets just say, we weren't impressed especially as the rest of the paintwork was in very good condition.

    The so-called diet drinks are poison and addictive. Just ask me! I eventually figured out that the Pepsi max/whatever would kill me before the Scotch did. Not that I ever gained a lot of weight; but I sure felt a difference when I ceased 'using'. I do know that sugar is just about the worst thing for weight gain. All the 'fat free', 'lite' etc. don't work in the way we are supposed to believe; they are full with salt, artificial sweeteners and lots of numbers.
    Good idea to eat fresh, natural food and avoid adding anything in packets and cans which are loaded with sugar and salt and again - the nasty numbers.

    i think many things come into play when you are trying to lose weight.
    I myself have been on a diet all my life, and its not been an easy road i can tell you.
    But i have learnt, those that have had a dysfunctional life, will not lose weight easily, and or problems in general, that they cannot overcome, so moods, will dominate some.
    As it has with me at times.
    but i too have learnt that they stick SO MUCH sugar in every single little product now its NOT funny.
    IN my 1litre of milk i now buy glucose free, try to stay off the sugar for a day nearly kills me.
    I get plenty of help with the diabex(NOT) really not sure this one works at all unless i'm in the right frame of mind.
    So Hormones have a large play in losing weight as well, and me liking my food hasn't helped much either. Cause where do i turn, when i get upset.....I'll let ya guess that one mm!
    Okay enough for now i've vented.....thanks for listening :)

    Drinking more and more water is what a considerable practice to start with your weight loss efforts. Make it work on a regular basis and drink water at intervals of a specified schedule. I'm not saying that drinking more water alone help you reduce weight, but it's an essential part of the process along with other practices like dieting, exercise, etc.

    I think the advice in the intro is a little facile.
    Firstly, lets admit steroids cause weight gain and also change fat distribution - moonface, buffalo neck, fat torso and skinny arms and legs. So, find out if your dose is as small as possible to achieve benefit and when/if can you start gradual reduction. Appetite will also increase, so more volume of food is likely to be eaten.
    Some weight gain is inevitable, the aim should be to limit it as far as possible.

    Whether your approach is low fat or low carb or both, is up to you, but as you're likely to eat more volume I'd recommend focusing on increasing overall bulk with low joule foods - most veggies for a start.
    Eg, with main meal add heaps of low carb veggies/salad and maybe have a second portion. In mixed meals like stews, stir fries hugely expand the veg component and cut the carbs back. Used low fat dressings/sauces eg white balsamic on salads, dry wine in stews.
    An example of low joule dessert could be fruit in low joule jelly with low sugar/low fat yoghurt - large serve will yield little calories.

    For snacks stuff like celery/carrot sticks with dips like salsa, cottage cheese + lf yoghurt + onion + radish + gherkin, or 'skinny (ie ~6% fat) humus. Or a thick veg, or tomato/ gazpacho soup you can swing a few cups of this during the day. Note, if it's commercial, sodium intake may become huge. Worth seeing a dietitian for a plan and ideas for variety.
    Finally, invest in physical activity, if possible.

    I also started making a ginger coction, I scraped off the skin off the ginger and grated it(3oz) to two cups of water and added to boiling water, add some sugar to taste, then add some cardamomom, and cinnamon, sorry i can't spell either, but i'm sure you can guess which i mean, then let it cool, add or leave at that strength, depends how much of it you can handle. but the stronger the beater, as it takes away the pain of the joints. OH works for me a treat, but i'm drinking it, in doses as needed. Try it what you got to lose!

    Rosret and buby. There are some great recipes for turmeric paste, a teaspoon of which assists in knocking on the head (for 6 hrs. anyway)
    the pain of migraine. I, personally know someone who experiences this.
    It is a beneficial treatment for inflammation i.e. joints.
    Try these hints on your medical doctor. Ha ha ha.
    Speaking of whom!!!--- Doesn't matter.
    I've just had two treatments of Bowen Therapy for a number of ailments including neck and low back. It's unbelievable how good I'm feeling and have made appt. for a third treatment.

    It's scandalous that all these 'alternative' treatments, therapies, medicines etc., remain unrecognized by the medical profession and therefore, remain seemingly expensive and, in my lifetime, will not be bulk-billed. (I say "seemingly" as it may cost $60 or more but; one receives pain- free treatment for an hour and more.)
    Perhaps the drug companies have a little input here.

    Justsane. When you say to "see your doctor" -- I'm guessing you mean a 'medical doctor'.
    They are excellent for writing prescriptions or, if making a diagnosis is not too difficult or too time consuming a task, then, they may refer a patient to a 'specialist' or surgeon.
    I believe our general practitioners are ruled by time constraints and when it's not possible for them to reach a satisfactory diagnostic conclusion within that time frame, then perhaps, a prescription will have to suffice until further, or clearer symptoms appear.
    Of course, this is all quite reasonable and understandable.

    I successfully lost 5 kilos in a month by keeping a spreadsheet using a calorie counter from the internet. I am retired so I had time to do this every day. I planned my daily intake each day and I also increased my exercise every day to include at least 20 minutes every 2 days. I reduced portions of everything including my morning coffee. I still had a small glass of red wine every day but I increased fibre with salads mostly of celery which fills you and still had cheese in slivers and, ½ hard boiled egg in these salads. If I went out, which happened 1-2 times a week I chose wisely and ate small serves. I actually lost the weight 3 weeks ahead of plan. I think by keeping the data. I was more motivated to keep to it and some days ate less than planned.

    I have just tipped over into diabetes so have to walk with my bad knee. However, glucosamine and chondotrin (spelling?) seem to significantly help with my arthritis. I also take chia seeds three times a day that greatly help with energy and possibly the arthritis as well (and the 'garbage disposal system' too).

    Hey Denny, I too do Glucosamine with Chondroitin. I was recently told that it's the Chondroitin we require and the Glucosamine is the bit which aids in the body's absorption of Chondroitin.
    Interesting! Well, I thought so.

    Medical experts now advise that people in their 70's must take are when desiring to lose weight, that they not only lose fat, but muscle as well! Dieting in your earlier years is far different to dieting later in life. Smaller, high protein meals, walking, light weight training, will keep strength and muscle tone, so enjoy butter over the chemical concoction of margarine, and whole milk, over watery low fat!!

    Yay!! Hear, hear! Totally agree about the butter being better and keeping away from all the so-called 'low-fat' and 'light'. Bodies are healthier without the additives, the bleachings and the extractions and anything chemical at all.
    Natural food is the only way.

    and brainstraina,
    they really put sugar in everything they can.
    I was told they are even putting it in the water we sometimes buy in a bottle at the supermarket.
    I wonder how true that is?

    BUBY - I had not heard about the sugar being added to bottled water but; that's ok - I don't use it anyway. Hope you don't!! If unsure or don't like the taste of tap/tank water, just boil it and it tastes great.
