A great tip to follow when losing weight is to make sure you get adequate rest. If you do not get enough rest, certain hormones that affect hunger are altered. This can cause your appetite to increase. Studies have linked sleep deprivation and obesity. Therefore, aim to get around seven to eight hours of sleep per night.
To make weight loss an easy process and ensure your personal success, you should make sure you have plenty of diet-friendly foods not only on-hand, but also ready to eat in the refrigerator. Take the time to clean, cut up and store vegetables and fruits, as soon as they are brought in from the market, so they can be grabbed on the go or any time you have a craving so you aren't even tempted to grab that bag of potato chips or box of cookies.
Use the time you spend working at your desk to tighten you abs. When flattening your belly, you will want to focus on the transversus abdominis muscle. You can strengthen it by sucking your belly button inward as far as you can manage and holding it in next to your spine while you breathe in and out a few times.
