Can you really lose weight quickly? That is the question that many of us ask. We live in a time and in a society where we want and expect almost instant results. It is no different when we think about losing weight and getting in better shape.
The problem is that the manufacturers of weight loss and fitness products know that about us too. They gear their advertising campaigns around the idea of telling us what we want to hear.
They make claims and promises about how we can lose weight quickly if we just use their product. But, have you ever noticed what is on the side of the package?
Whether you’re talking about a exercise gadget or a supplement there is always a disclaimer that says that the product will deliver the results it promised if you use it with a sensible diet and exercise program.
Now, I’m not saying that is a bad thing but it does kind of make you wonder how much of the result comes from the product itself and how much comes from the “sensible diet and exercise”.
I personally think you can lose weight pretty fast and without a ton of hassle if you do it the right way.
So, what is the right way? Well, first of all the right way for you would be to talk to your doctor first. Only he can let you know what is the right way for you.
Your doctor should be able to tell you what types of eating plans and exercise plans that would be best for you based on your health needs and current health.
So, I can’t speak for you or tell you what to do but I can tell you what I did and what worked great for me. Hopefully it will inspire you too and it may even work for you.
So, what did I do to lose weight? Well, it was pretty simple; I ate more of the right kinds of food more often during the day and I exercised.
Not necessarily fun or easy but it worked for me and it works for millions of other people… and it may just work for you too.
The only thing you need to determine is what types and quantities of foods you should eat. Again, this is something you should discuss with your doctor.
Here is the plan I used:
1. I ate 6 small meals a day. Each one of them consisted of a few ounces of lean meat (chicken, fish or shrimp) along with a cup of greens (usually spinach) and a few ounces of carbs (usually rice). The exact foods you choose as well as the exact amount will depend on your body type and your weight loss goals.
2. I drank more water throughout my day.
3. I walked. I either walked around my pool when it was really hot or I would walk around the block if it was a little cooler.
That’s it. That’s all I did. I stopped eating out, I stopped eating too much of the wrong things and I gave my body what it needed.
My results? Pretty good, I lost 6 pounds in one week, almost a pound a day just by doing what my body needed me to do. As far as I’m concerned, that is the only way to lose weight quickly.
