Exercise

You should exercise 60 minutes each day, it not only is good for your body but helps burn off the calories you ate. The thing about exercising more is it makes you more hungry, but instead of just snacking you could eat a salad or any type of vegetables for lower calories and they keep you full for a longer time.
