Lose Weight Quickly

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.

Lose Weight Fast

Perhaps you saw it coming for quite a while, and knew it would get to this point. Or, maybe you looked in the mirror one day and all of a sudden realized just how much weight you have put on over the years. Chances are good that the second scenario is more likely. Most of us don’t want to be overweight. And while we may have a few clues as to how we got here, it still comes as somewhat of a shock. Either way, you have finally made the decision to shed those extra pounds once and for all, and you want to lose weight fast.

Hold on! That is an admirable goal, but you need to step back for a moment and put things into perspective. To put it another way, you need to be realistic and specific. How much weight you want to lose and how quickly will play a bog role in which diet and exercise program you choose.

You still have to be realistic though. If you want to lose 20 pounds in 2 weeks, then you’re not going to have much luck. Not only that, but any diet that makes such promises is most likely lying at best, or bad for your health at worst. It simply isn’t safe to lose that much weight, except for a few rare exceptions, and only if you are doing so under the guidance of a qualified medical professional.

Most experts agree that losing 1 or 2 pounds per week is safe and effective. However, you may be able to bump that up to 5 pounds in the first week in some cases. For most people, 1 to 2 pounds is ideal. It’s not only relatively easy, but you will be more likely to stay on such a diet. If you have a choice between losing 20 pounds over two months, only to regain it; or losing 1 pound per week over the course of 6 months, but keeping it off forever, which one would you choose.

The good news is that you don’t really have to choose. You can still lose the 20 pounds, but if you take the right approach, you will be able to keep it off. It’s all about a simple formula: 3,500 calories is equivalent to 1 pound of body weight. That means if you take in 500 calories less per day for a week, you will lose 1 pound. Or, if you burn off an extra 500 calories per day, you will lose a pound.

So, here’s the real “secret” to lose weight fast: do both! Take in 500 calories less and burn off an extra 500 calories. That’s 1,000 calories per day in your favor. That’s a loss of 2 pounds per week, or just over 100 pounds in a year’s time. And the best part it is that it won’t be nearly as hard as if you were depriving yourself, and that means you will be able to keep the weight off for good.

How To Lose Weight Naturally

Have you had just about all you can take from the diet industry? If so, then you are not alone. It seems as if they are always thrusting a new diet pill, secret concoction or gimmick our way; in the hopes that we will buy into their inflated promises…at least one more time. While the truth is that some of those weight loss products really do work, more and more people are wondering how to lose weight naturally.

This type of thinking is actually much more healthy in the long run. Let’s say there was a safe pill for weight loss. All you had to do was take it once a day, and then you could whatever you want and sit on the couch watching television. You could drop 25 pounds by just taking a pill, what would be so wrong about that?

There are two main problems with all diet pills (and we’re not counting the potential of harmful side effects, either). First, you will never develop good eating habits if you pop a pill and be done with it. But then what happens if you stop taking the pills? Not only would you gain all of the weight back, but you would probably gain more because you would be accustomed to eating without any regard to the consequences. The second problem is that even though you would be losing weight, all of that bad food would be taking its toll on your overall health. Again, we’re not talking about the side effects of the diet pills themselves, but rather the harmful effects of the unhealthy food itself.

The question of how to lose weight naturally has a fairly simple answer. It’s really just a matter of burning more calories than you take in, and making sure what you do take in is healthy for you. Furthermore, you shouldn’t take any synthetic supplements or drugs in your efforts to drop those extra pounds.

Food is the key to natural weight loss. Choosing foods as close to their natural state is the quickest way to ensure you are eating right. For example, a carrot is better for you than a big piece of fat-laden, sugar-added carrot cake that’s covered with another layer of fat and sugar in the form of frosting. Does that mean you can’t eat carrot cake? Not at all, but it does mean that you shouldn’t kid yourself that you’re eating healthy because there’s a trace of vegetable matter in the piece of cake.

Fresh fruits and vegetables (frozen is also a good choice), whole grains, healthy fats and lean protein are the cornerstone of a healthy diet for weight loss. Your fruits and vegetables should cover a wide variety of colors to make sure you’re getting as many vitamins, minerals and micronutrients as possible. Unprocessed whole grains are better than processed; for example, oats are a better choice for how to lose weight naturally than oatmeal cookies. Avoid white flour and white rice as well.
