Wouldn't it have been great if we could lose those extra kilos without actually having to slog for hours at the gym? With the market flooded with different kinds of diets and routines, it becomes difficult to assess the right one. But by following the 'killer' tips given below, it is now possible to lose, and also maintain, weight in a holistic manner! 
 
Tip 1: Half the battle is won if you know exactly how much you need to lose. Be specific, find out the extra kilos, and set a healthy weight loss target. 
 
Tip 2: It is very important that you devote a specific time to your body in terms of fitness. Assigning a particular time slot in the day would help you stick to your agenda. 
 
Tip 3: Your kitchen needs to remain stocked. Not with chips and aerated drinks but healthy stuff like green vegetables, fruits, cereals and grains which in turn, would make you enjoy home-cooked healthy meals. 
 
Tip 4: Try avoiding unnecessary snacking or going out for late dinners. This does not mean that you put an end to your socializing, but give your tummy a break from the same. 
 
Tip 5: A healthy weight loss program would need some amount of workout. Include a balanced session of cardio and weight training to derive maximum benefit. 
 
Tip 6: Inculcate a healthy way of cooking. Use less oil, low salt, fresh food, and see the results for yourself. Opt for healthier cooking habits for a healthier lifestyle.
 
Tip 7: It is imperative to have one active hobby other than moving from the bed to the office chair. Go out for weekend trips, enroll in a dance class, or go walking with your dog. You'll have fun on your weight loss journey.
 
Tip 8: Drink plenty of water. It is a universal truth that there is no alternative to the benefits of water. Carry a bottle everywhere so that it ultimately becomes a habit to have at least 8-10 glasses per day.
 
Tip 9: Today's lifestyle is full of stress but find a way to combat it. Take to yoga, meditation, listening to music or reading a book; in time, you'll see its benefits rubbing on to your weight loss program.
 
Tip 10: Plan healthy vacations. All programs go for a toss as soon as a vacation comes along. Try to stick to your plan of action, and follow the healthy lifestyle even on a holiday. Eventually, these will stay with you for as long as you live.
