Weight loss is what happens when you burn more calories than you eat. In other words, weight loss is what you can expect when your rate of physical activity is greater than your rate of calorie consumption.
You could eat less food, but when the feelings of hunger are unbearable, exercise is inevitable. Mere exercising will not work either, as eating right is the key to weight loss.
A simple solution is to continue eating foods that make you feel full, but choose foods with less caloric density. The recipes below provide a low calorie intake, but make you feel full for longer period of time, making them perfect for weight loss.
