Losing weight can be very hard if you don't know how to do it properly. Your body doesn't like change and will try to keep you at the same state. You must gradually force your body to change through the use of proper dieting and exercise.
The first step is to decrease the number of calories you eat during the day. If your provide your body with less calories it won't store excess calories as fat and will start to use fat as energy to compensate for the fewer calories. The best way to do this is to record what you usually eat in a normal day. Write down the food and the number of calories it contains. Add up all the calories for that day. Now subtract 500 calories from the usual amount of calories you eat in a day. The result is the number of calories you should eat daily for effective weight loss.
The next step is to split your meals up into 6 small meals instead of 3 big meals. This will increase you metabolism and provide better digestion. Aim to eat a meal every 3 hours as this is the time it takes for a meal to digest. Once a meal has digested your body will need more food to allow it to complete bodily processes. However, if you don't provide food within 3 hours your body will store extra fat and start to use muscle tissue. This is because your body has survival mechanisms that will keep you alive when you don't have food for long periods.
Lift weights to increase muscle mass. Perform full body weight lifting exercises such as squats and deadlifts, these will stimulate the most muscle. The more muscle you have the higher your metabolism will go. When you have more muscle your body will burn more calories per day automatically, with no additional effort from you. Weight lifting is the best way to really raise your metabolism. One workout will raise your metabolism for the next 48 hours and then once your body has built up more muscle you will have a higher metabolism.
Lastly do cardio on days when you aren't lifting weights. Cardio can be any aerobic exercise such as jogging, rowing, swimming. During this exercise you will actually burn fat. Your body will use it's fat resources as energy during your cardio workouts. The workouts should be 45 to 60 minutes long and should gradually increase in intensity as you become fitter. The best time to do cardio is in the morning before breakfast, as your energy stores in your muscles will be depleted, leaving only fat as energy to be used.
