Easy Ways To Lose Weight Fast

Is it true? Are there really easy ways to lose weight fast? Well, I guess that really depends on two main things: how much weight do you need to lose and what do you consider “fast”?

If you only need to lost a few pounds, say 2 up to 10, than you can probably drop that weight pretty quickly and easily. If, on the other hand, you need to lose 15 or more pounds and you want to do it in a week or two, you may not have realistic expectations.

There are some easy ways to lose weight fast, but most of them will only involve losing some water weight and will only result in losing a few pounds. The water weight will usually come right back as soon as you starting eating normally again.

The fast methods don’t usually include actually losing excess body fat. Losing the excess body fat, as opposed to only losing water weight, is the only real way to lose weight and have it stay off (at least as long as you don’t just go back to your old habits of eating).

Many of these fast weight loss plans will revolve around some sort of liquid fasting or cleansing. There are many variations but the general theory is the same:

1. You will greatly reduce, or eliminate completely, eating solid foods for several days.

2. During that time you will ingest only liquid shakes or some sort of cleanse mixture. There are many recipes online that you can try. The idea is to provide your body with the nutrients it needs and/ or help you flush toxins out of your body.

For the most part, these types of weight loss plans are good for getting off to a quick start but if you need to lose more than 10 – 15 pounds, it’s unlikely that you will get the results you want from just this method.

I don’t mean to be the bearer of bad news but any significant weight loss is going to take some time and it is going to be the result of a combination of watching what you eat as well as some sort of physical activity.

Pills, potions and gadgets will only get you so far, from that point on you will need to get more exercise and eat less (also eat better).

But, having said that, don’t make the mistake of thinking that to lose weight you need to go hardcore. Some simple lifestyle changes can make a big difference. The most important thing to remember is that unless you want to gain the weight back right away, you have to make permanent lifestyle changes.

Just going on a “diet” will only allow you to lose weight, but if you don’t make permanent changes you will just gain it all back sooner or later.

There may not really be such a thing as easy ways to lose weight fast if you have a lot of weight to lose. But there are some simple things you can do to make changes to your life that will result (maybe not in quick) but permanent weight loss.

The Fastest Way To Lose Belly Fat

Have you been looking for the quickest way to lose belly fat? There is a program that can give you a flat stomach in just two weeks. This program doesn’t include shakes, pills or potions and the only cash outlay is $30 at your local sports store. This article isn’t about trying to sell you some magic pill; it’s simply showing you how you can lose that excess fat around the tummy.

This routine does require a stability ball that costs around $30 and you can get one from your local sporting store. These balls come in various sizes between 18 and 26 inch and you will need to choose the right size for your height. Studies have shown that people who work out with a stability ball build twice the muscle fibers as those who do regular crunches without a ball. Using a stability ball for your exercises will definitely help you to lose that excess belly fat much faster.

When you purchase a stability ball it will come with an instruction manual that will outline various exercises that you can do with the ball. The exercise instructions usually come with diagrams to illustrate how to do each exercise. In this article I will outline a couple of exercises that are great to do with the ball to help lose that fat around the stomach area.

The first exercise is called the Ball Curl. Sit on the stability ball with your hands behind your head. Next you want to roll your body down until your bottom is just off the ball and your lower back and middle are on the ball.

The next exercise is called the Pike and is a bit more complicated. Lie on the top of the ball with your legs together and the ball should be under your thighs. Keep your legs straight and then contract your abs and lift your hips up toward the ceiling, rolling the ball to the shins. Hold this for one second and then lower.

The ball is important in the plan to lose fat around the stomach but it isn’t the only tool that you need. If you really want to lose fat fast then you also want to do some cardio workouts at least three times a week. With a cardio workout you should warm up for three minutes, follow this with three minutes of regular paced exercise and then two minutes of high paced exercise. Repeat the three minutes regular and two minutes high exercises for a total of 45 minutes finishing with two minutes cooling down exercises. Cardio workouts might include running, brisk walking, cycling or a cardio machine.

Lastly, you need to reduce your intake of calories. You can exercise all you want but if you continue to eat too many calories then you’re not likely to lose any weight. You need to eat 500 fewer calories than you would to maintain your weight. So if the required calories to maintain your weight are 2700 then you should only eat 2200 to lose weight. The required amount of calories to maintain your weight will depend on your sex, height and age.

If you follow this program for two weeks you will see a remarkable difference in your stomach fat. You should lose at least an inch from your weight and lose around five pounds.

This really is the quickest way to lose belly fat!
