Lose Weight Fast And Easy

OK, so you were just watching t.v. (or listening to the radio or reading a magazine) and you saw an ad that promised that you could lose weight fast and easy. But, since you are an intelligent person, you have your doubts.

Is it really possible to lose weight fast and easy? Is there really a system, a supplement or an exercise machine that will work like that?

Well, I don’t pretend to be an expert but I can tell you from my experience I’ve never found anything for weight loss that really delivered the way it was supposed to.

I have found that some exercise programs, eating programs or supplements might help a little, but I’ve never found one that will do it all as quickly or as easily as the advertising would have you believe.

I have bought many types of products over the years to get in better shape. Everything from exercise equipment, to workout DVD’s to a supplement and I can tell you one thing that I’ve noticed on all of them: they have disclaimers.

While not necessarily a bad thing, when you buy a weight loss supplement that promises you can lose weight “without dieting or exercise” and then you read the side of the bottle where it clearly states something like: “In conjunction with a healthy eating plan and exercise” you kind of have to wonder if the supplement is really doing anything at all.

I mean if you used the same healthy eating plan and exercise without taking the supplement, would you see the same results? Is it the supplement that is making the excess fat disappear or is it the healthy eating plan and exercise?

Like I said above, I’m no expert so I don’t know but it does kind of make you wonder, doesn’t it?

Of course, you should always talk to your doctor before you start any type of eating plan, exercise plan or taking any supplements. If you have any restrictions your doctor will let you know.

So, you may be wondering, does that mean that I have to work hard to lose weight? Well, based on my own experience, the answer to that question would be “no”. You see, recently I went on a “diet” where I just gave my body the foods it needed to run at it’s best.

I ate several small, healthy meals throughout the day and I actually lost weight! Yes, that’s right, you heard me, I ate more food and I lost weight.

I lost almost a pound a day! And the really cool thing was that I did it in a healthy way; I just gave my body what it needed. I increased my metabolism so I was burning fat throughout my day and I lost weight.

I hope that I’ve shown you that while there may not be any shortcuts to weight loss, you can lose all the weight you need to lose just by giving your body what it needs. Keeping your body functioning at it’s best while losing weight sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

If you want to lose weight fast and easy I would recommend you talk to your doctor first for some ideas and then see about eating your way to a better body. Sounds odd, but it worked for me, it will probably work for you too.

The Fat Smash Diet

The Fat Smash diet plan is a diet created by Ian Smith and it is a 90 day program that became quite popular when Celebrity Fit Club was the big thing on TV. This diet claims that you do not need to count calories to lose weight and you will not feel hungry. However, such claims seem too good to be true, so are they?

Let’s take a look at this diet in more detail and how it actually works. This weight loss program does actually have all the good things that a good diet should have. With this diet you need to follow a healthy eating plan combined with exercise to lose weight. It doesn’t make promises of losing lots of weight without any effort; it shows you how to put in the effort to make changes to lose weight. Ian Smith has a good, solid foundation for this diet and also puts a high focus on the benefits of having a good support system of family and friends. It can sometimes be difficult to stay motivated while dieting so a good support system can help to encourage you to stay on track.

Many weight loss programs focus on either the diet itself or on an exercise regime. It is important that you combine these two aspects for the best weight loss results and not just focus on one or the other. The Fat Smash diet suggests that you undergo a detox first to give you an initial burst of motivation as it will help to kick start your weight loss. The detox stage lasts around nine days and during this time you may actually not feel the best as your body has some symptoms of the detox. You may experience nausea, headaches and tiredness so it is best to begin this diet at a time when you can cope with these symptoms.

The Fat Smash diet program is divided into four parts. The first part is the detox stage and during this stage you will eat mainly fruit and vegetables. Some of the dishes suggested in the diet have a Japanese flavor and you can find many of the ingredients at your local store. The second stage of the program will add lean meat, eggs, fish and other foods into the diet. In stage three you will have bread, wheat, pasta and even some deserts added to your diet. Phase four actually includes some pizza and other fast foods. During all four phases it is recommended that you eat little and eat often. Eating this way will help to boost your metabolism which will enable you to lose weight faster.

This diet also suggests a number of different activities that you could do to get the required exercise. If you follow the diet but don’t include exercise then you won’t see as good results as you would if you do include exercise. The Fat Smash diet program is actually quite a good diet program for losing weight if you stick to it and follow it through, including the exercises. If you are looking for a good diet program to help you lose weight then this one might be the answer.

Juice Recipes For Weight Loss

There are a lot of juice recipes for weiight loss available today. It’s mostly just a matter of finding one that you find easy to make and you like the taste of it. This is a tried and true method for weight loss and if you go about it in the right way, you can have success too.

It’s really easy, when you are desperate to lose weight, to get caught up in one fad diet after another. Some of these fad diets may actually help you lose some weight, but you do have to ask yourself two very important questions before you decide to give it a try:

1. Is the weight loss solely the result of water weight loss? If so, you will most likely just gain back any weight you lose. What you really want to do is find diets that will help you lose unwanted body fat and not just lose pounds of water weight.

2. Is the diet something that you can reasonably expect to stay on for a lifetime? Now, this can be a little tricky because sometimes a short term diet can still be a good thing if you use it as a springboard to healthier habits and don’t expect it to be the answer to your weight loss prayers.

Juice recipes for weiight loss can actually be good for you for your lifetime. Alone, it won’t be enough to lose hundreds of pounds, for most people, but it can be a great addition to a healthy eating plan and a strong workout regimen.

Combining the benefits of a juicing diet with these other two components can really help you achieve all your weight loss goals.

Here is just one of many juice diet recipes. If you are really interested you can find many other recipes. To get the most out of your diet you may want to consider investing in a juicer so you can get the freshest juice possible:

This recipe makes 4 servings:

1 cup strawberries, sliced
1 1/2 orange juice
1 whole mango, peeled and cut
2 kiwi peeled and cut
1 to tablespoons of honey
1/2 seltzer

Mix the ingredients together (except the seltzer) on puree until smooth. Pour into a glass and stir in seltzer. Serve over ice if desired.

There are a few “tools” that will make this a little easier to accomplish. Of course one of the most important things is a good quality blender.

Next, having a juicer so you can have fresh juice to use in all your recipes would be nice. And don’t just get stuck on the idea of fruit juices, vegetable juice can work great too and it will also give you that much more variety.

This is just one of many recipes you can find, or create, that will help your weight loss goals along. Since many people don’t get enough fresh fruits and vegetables in their daily diet, this is an excellent way to introduce more healthy foods into your diet on a daily basis.

Look online, in your local library or book store, or even get creative and come up with your own recipes. There are almost unlimited options when looking for juice recipes for weiight loss. You can lose weight, eat more healthy and never get bored, how neat is that?

Your Personal Healthy Eating Weight Loss Plan

Ugh! If you have spent any amount of time looking into losing weight, then you are probably sick and tried of seeing so many fad diets. Sure, they all sound great! They promise to shed pounds quickly, and all you have to do is follow their “secret” plan. The real secret is that all of the plans that work only work because you take in fewer calories than you burn. That’s the only way to do it. But what fad diets like to do is add some sort of gimmick. This gimmick is meant to distract you from what’s really causing you to lose weight. Unfortunately, it’s the gimmick that makes a so-called healthy eating weight loss plan so hard to stick to.

Maybe you have tried more than your fair share of these kinds of diets and you feel as though you couldn’t try another one if your life depended on it. Listen up! Your life may actually depend on it. But the good news is that you don’t have to rely on some sort of wacky fad diet to start eating healthy.

A lot of people that sell their special diets are going to be mad, but here goes…you don’t need them! You really don’t. However, there are a few good diets out there, you just need to have a good idea of what you’re looking for. And what that is, is a healthy eating plan.

So, while you may be thrilled with the idea of being able to eat all of the greasy double cheeseburgers or cabbage soup that you like, the reality of such diets is different. First, healthy eating means balance. Fad diets that focus on one type of food, or eliminate whole groups of foods (low-carb diets, for example) do not provide the balance your body needs. Second, while these diets sound good and may feel great at first, the harsh reality is that the novelty will wear off much more quickly than you expect.

What all of this means is that you will never look at new diets the same way again. Instead of judging them on their crazy claims, you will be able to judge them on how healthy they are. After all, you are unique, and what works for one author may not work for you. That doesn’t make that particular diet bad, it just means you may need to alter it slightly to fit in with your health goals. When you stop and think about it, this is a much more realistic approach. It also means that you will be much more likely to stick to the diet because you have made it your own.

Don’t misunderstand, though, you can still try new diets. But as you are trying them, remember that you are trying to turn it into your own personal healthy eating weight loss plan. It’s pretty easy to do once you get the hang of it. Plus, once you start seeing how much better and long-lasting the results are, you’ll be glad you took the time to do it.
