1. Losing weight, or losing fat?
First of all, you need to decide if you want to lose weight, or if you want to lose bodyfat. Losing weight is simple. Just stop drinking any fluids (water etc) for a few days, or simply chop off a leg or two. I guarantee the scales will show you losing weight, but it is far from a healthy option! Losing bodyfat is equally simple and MUCH healthier! So I will go into a bit more detail about this. UPDATE: If you want to know more about the ways to measure your body weight or body fat levels, take a look at my 2 part article telling you all you need to know (Body Composition part 1 – Body Weight)
