If you have a minimal weight issue, then losing it quickly should not be all that difficult.

Muscle will weigh more than fat does which means you won’t see too many changes at first. This article will teach you all about losing weight.
Make sure you are eating enough calories each day to make sure you are losing weight the proper way. Starving yourself is not a successful way to diet and keep the weight off.

You can’t resist french fries, can you? French fries are bad for those trying to lose weight. Baked fries, however, can be a way of still enjoying french fries while sticking to your diet. Cut potatoes up into individual fries, add some oil, pepper and salt to them for taste, and them bake them in the oven for a half hour at approximately 400 degrees. Use a spatula to loosen them, turn them over and let them bake for approximately 10 minutes. They are great with ketchup and have lower fat content, so you won’t miss the deep-fried ones. These “French Bakes” are from Laurel’s Kitchen cookbook.
