Healthy Diet Tips And Much More



Need To Lose Weight Fast

Have a big event coming up soon? Want to be able too lose a few pounds before it arrives? Well, if so, there are some things you can do if you need to lose weight fast.

Please don’t think that you are going to drop 20 lbs. in a week, you’re not. Even if that were possible, and I’m not sure it is, it would be unhealthy for you.

Your better bet is to start early. I mean, come on, let’s face facts, we know if we have a wedding or a class reunion coming up. We have plenty of time to lose weight if we really want to, don’t wait until the last minute.

If you just want to lose 5 – 10 pounds in a few weeks, that is much more realistic.

Now, I’m going to warn you, some of these tips are borderline unhealthy. For many people, if they aren’t done to extreme or for too long, they are fine but you have to talk to your doctor first.

Getting your doctors ok is the best way to ensure success and that you don’t end up in the hospital. Talk to your doctor and run any type of weight loss plan by her before you start, not after.

So, if you need to lose weight fast, here are some tips I recommend:

1. Find a healthy cleanse or fast. Sometimes you may accomplish both at the same time. There are many recipes online that will allow you make a cleansing drink. You can then go on a diet for a few days which will consist mainly of a liquid diet with only a little bit of solid foods.

Always make sure you talk to your doctor first and always make sure you stay on such a program for no more than 2 or 3 days.

This can help you clean out your body and purge excess toxins out of your system. Most of the weight loss you see will only be water weight and you will gain much of it back when you go off the cleanse, but it may be enough to help you fit into that new suit or dress for your special event.

2. Drink more water. At first you may actually get a little bloated but after a day or so you should see you are losing water weight. That is because you are going to the bathroom more frequently.

You will also flush excess toxins from your system. Another benefit is that you are keeping your body well hydrated which will improve the appearance of your skin and hair.

3. Do not starve yourself. Instead eat 5 or 6 small, nutritious meals daily. When you do that you are keeping your metabolism working more efficiently and burning hot all day long.

That is the best way to lose weight more quickly. I lost 6 pounds in one week using this method and the best part was that I lost excess body fat and not just water weight.

Just include the right balance of lean protein, carbs and fat. Find out how much of each you should have by talking to your doctor first.

If you need to lose weight fast make sure you talk to your doctor, stay healthy and use these ideas as a starting point.

Fast Ways To Lose Weight

Most of us have had to wage our own little battle of the bulge at one point or another in our lives. To increase your odds of success the next time, here are some tips on the fast ways to lose weight.

Now, be aware, that these tips are going to be the best options you will have for fast ways to lose weight, the healthy ways only. Some of the tips I will give you may actually be a little borderline but they should be ok if you only use them for a short time to jump start to your weight loss.

Here are some important things to keep in mind:

1. Many times you can jump start your diet with a cleanse and / or a fast. Of course, before you start any type of diet, cleanse or exercise program you absolutely should talk to your doctor first. There can be dangerous side effects and that can be compounded if you already have some health issues.

A cleanse will enable you to cleanse your body of a buildup of fecal matter and toxins. It may sound gross but it can be a good way to lose some weight right off the bat.

Be aware, though, that this type of weight loss is almost always water weight. As soon as you start eating solid food again, you will just gain it all back. It is more about cleansing your body that any real weight loss.

2. Many people can actually benefit from eating more. That may sound weird but few people eat enough good food throughout their day to keep their metabolism firing hot all day long.

When I started eating 6 small, nutritious meals a day I lost weight. I lost 6 pounds in one week. It was challenging at first but it did work.

The best part of it was that I was giving my body what it needed… in other words I was losing weight in a healthy way.

3. Drink more water. Few of us drink as much water as we should. It’s recommended that you drink half of your body weight in ounces of water everyday.

For example, if you weigh 200lbs. you should drink 100 ounces of water daily. It can’t hurt to discuss this with your doctor too. Believe it or not it can be dangerous to drink too much water too. Find out what the right amount is for you.

4. Exercise. If you hate the idea of going to the gym than you must rearrange your thinking. There are a lot of exercising options that don’t require a gym membership. Find one or more that you like and then do them on a daily basis.

In our society we tend to over think things. We seem to think if we can’t do a marathon we can’t workout at all. Not true. Even small changes can make a big difference over time. Start small if you have to, but start.

The most important tip I can give you is to have realistic expectations. Fast ways to lose weight may be possible depending on what you mean by fast and how much weight you have to lose. But in most cases slow and steady weight loss, in a healthy way, will get you where you want to be and will make it easier for you to keep the weight off.

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.

Diets To Lose Weight

There are so many different diets to lose weight out there that trying to figure out the best one for you is absolutely mind-boggling. There’s the milk diet and the chocolate diet and the soup diet and other extreme diets that will help you lose weight, some very quickly, but, they just do not teach you how to eat better for the rest of your life.

One of the best diets to lose weight is not a diet at all. It is a lifestyle change. If you just make some simple changes with the types of food you eat, watch your portion sizes and get a little exercise everyday you will lose weight.

Here are some simple guidelines. If you drink a lot of pop, stop. Switch to water or green tea. If you switch to green tea get the flavored stuff, it just tastes better. Flavor your water with a little lemon or lime juice. Not only will this give the water some flavor, citrus is a natural diuretic and will help with any and all water weight you have.

If you eat out a lot, stop. Start cooking for yourself more. If you do not consider yourself a good cook then learn a few simple meals and practice. The more you do it the better you will get. Eat a lot of salads, too. They are easy to make, you can just go buy a bag of pre-washed salad greens and add what you want. Throw in 3 ounces of grilled chicken breast, canned tuna or salmon fillet and you have a great meal.

A secret…try a Greek, raspberry or balsamic vinaigrette. They are all very low in carbs just be sure to measure out the correct serving size. A little vinaigrette goes a long way. Or learn to make your own low-fat, low-carb salad dressing. It is totally up to you.

Eat five or six small meals a day. This may seem like a real big pain in the backside but if you plan things out and do it right it will make putting these meals together a snap. Just cook a bunch of chicken all at once and portion it out or buy the small cans of tuna. They are already three ounces, hey, look ma, no measuring!

Keep the already portioned chicken in the freezer and just thaw it out in the microwave when you need it. I would not recommend pre-cooking fish though, it takes no time to cook and is much better if you eat it right after it is cooked.

If you eat a lot of bad carbs, stop. Bad carbs come in the form of all the processed food you see on the shelves at the market. Breads, cereals, anything made from white, flour, white sugar, and even white rice are all considered to be bad carbs. all they do it raise your blood sugar and then add to the fat around your middle.

Like I said, making small changes in the way you eat and what you eat is one of the best diets to lose weight that I have found. Follow these tips and you will soon be losing weight, too.
