Sticking to 1,800 calories a day is often recommended for most women to maintain their weight, and for most men to lose weight With that in mind, choosing foods high in fiber and containing lean protein and healthy fats ensures you'll have a satisfying day, without going overboard on calories. Trim Portions. If you did nothing else but reduce your portions by 10%-20%, you would lose weight. Most of the portions served both in restaurants and at home are bigger than you need. Pull out the measuring cups to get a handle on your usual portion sizes , and work on paring them down. Get instant portion control by using small bowls, plates, and cups, says Brian Wansink, PhD, author of Mindless Eating. You won't feel deprived because the food will look plentiful on dainty dishware.

It was clear from our tests that body weight, or at least body composition, makes a big difference to triathlon performance. Take a fairly flat race like London Triathlon for example. Based loosely on our tests (and we accept that they're not 100% scientific) a triathlete could stand to improve their race time by at least one minute, probably more, by losing 3kg in bodyweight. Add in some hills and the time savings start becoming much greater. And the heavier or slower you are, the more time you stand to gain from shaving a few pounds off your waistline.

But like squirrels, many people seem to pack on pounds in the winter and shed them come spring. That's likely due to increased activity when the weather's nice. Surprisingly, though, Americans who live in places where you can exercise outdoors nearly year-round aren't necessarily slimmer than the rest. According to a 2008 report, Mississippi has the highest rate of obesity in the country. The state with the lowest obesity rate? Colorado.
