How To Lose Weight Fast

Losing weight quickly isn’t too difficult if you have a certain amount of will power. Everyone knows weight management depends on the ratio of energy spent (exercise) versus energy stored (eating).

 However, it is neither fun nor necessarily safe to go on an extreme diet and exercise program in order to lose weight fast. So we must turn to evolution and biology. We can tune our bodies up to burn energy more readily and we can slightly increase our daily exercise without being overwhelmed by the urgent desire to eat.

The first thing you need to do to lose weight fast is to slightly alter your eating habits. In order to avoid wearing out your will power, continue to eat whatever you want on the weekends. Even if it isn’t so healthy. During the week you must eat slightly less, stay away from white breads, stay away from processed sugar and stay away from caffeine and soft drinks.

 But most importantly, you must eat a big breakfast, a light lunch and a light dinner no later than 6 P.M. In between your regular meals you should snack every hour on very small portions of low fat snacks; low fat cottage cheese, half an apple, half a bagel, etc. This ensures that your body feels confident that you always have nutrition coming in. For this reason, you body will begin to burn energy more and more quickly instead of storing it as fat.

To further increase your metabolism you must exercise, especially in the morning before you eat breakfast and at night an hour after dinner. This ensures that your body will burn energy all night long. Do not exercise excessively. Take a brisk walk for 20 minutes. Do 30 sit ups and 20 push ups. Any time you walk somewhere, try to walk slightly faster than you usually do.

 Don’t make yourself breathless but just nudge your heart and lungs to use a little more energy. You should do some light activity for 20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes at night. The rest of the day just increase your pace in any physical motion you make. Take stairs instead of the elevator, take two stairs at once instead of one. Walk quickly across the crosswalk. This will increase the amount of energy you use in the day but will also encourage your body to up your metabolism.

Do not try to lose a lot of weight in one week. This isn’t healthy and will result in weight gain as soon as you revert to your normal lifestyle. However, if you pursue this program reasonably, depending on your body type, you could lose between 5-10 pounds in 2 weeks. That’s pretty quick! The longer you follow the program, the faster your body will burn energy and within a month, you may find that you no longer need to watch what you eat so carefully. And that, my friends, is how you lose weight fast.
