    Want to learn the weight loss tricks that work. It is hard to lose weight, as can be seen by over half the population who is overweight. But even still more than half of people want to lose weight. Then why is it so hard? There is no miracle pill, program or supplement that will help us lose weight fast and effectively. It takes time, determination and motivation. But there are some weight loss tricks that can make the process go by a little bit easier and smoother.

    Take a Before Picture Motivation is a key component when trying to lose weight. It's especially important for those of us just getting started and who have reached a plateau. Start your journey off by snapping a quick candid. Use this picture as a reminder for what you are doing and why you are doing it. It will be especially encouraging once you have lost some weight.

    Buy Healthy Foods One of the most effective weight loss tricks is to fill your cabinets, fridge and kitchen with healthy foods. Don't buy junk foods, processed foods or imitation ingredients. Buy whole, natural, healthy foods. If all you've in your house is healthy foods, it leaves you with one option to eat.

    Prepare Food Ahead of Time

    If you cook your food for the day in advance, it will be ready when it's time to eat. This makes more use of your time and speeds up preparation. Plus if you make larger portions you can split ten and save them for future meals.

    Switch to Small Plates

    Another one of our weight loss tricks includes switching to smaller plates. When you use bigger plates its more likely you will fill the plate, rather than leave empty space. So if you use a smaller plate you will fill a smaller space and consume fewer calories.

    Spice Things Up

    A spicy food like cayenne pepper is one of the secret weight loss tricks. Adding spices to your food will rev up your metabolism, helping you to burn more calories. Plus when cayenne pepper is added to foods, you are less likely to over consume at your next meal.

    Snack Wisely

    Choose whole foods for snacks rather than processed junk foods with no nutritional value. Whole foods such as an apple, carrots, or brown rice require more calories to break down and digest than refined foods. Plus if you have a sweet tooth, you can eat fruits for your snacks and squash your sweet tooth. Even though fruits have sugar, they are filled with other nutrients that the body will use up making it less likely the sugar will be stored as fat.

    Brush and Floss

    Here's a really nifty weight loss trick, brush and floss right after eating. This reduces your risk of unnecessary snacking especially at night.

    Take a Vitamin

    If you're not getting all your essential nutrients through your food you may be eating to satisfy something your body is telling you, you need. By taking a multivitamin you will satisfy your body's deficiency and reduce the amount of food you're consuming. Taking a multivitamin by no means is a way to lose weight, but it may help to eat less.

    Sweat it Out

    Do exercise activities that make you sweat. If you're sweating you are burning calories. The thermogenic effect of exercise raises your body's temperature, requiring your body to cool itself down by burning calories.

    Eat Before You Go Out and Take Food With You

    One of the safest weight loss tricks is to eat before you leave your house, or if you know you're going to get hungry bring food with you. This allows you to control the food you put into your body and you avoid eating junk food while out.
