10 Tips For Losing Weight Faster

fast weight loss 10 Tips For Losing Weight FasterLosing weight is about choices, motivation, and determination. It is not a rocket science. These 10 simple steps will help you lose weight faster.

1. Look at the Food Labels: Make it a habit to look at all the food labels of anything you eat or buy. Understanding what goes into you body can help you make choices not only on tastes, but also on health.

2. Use A Food/Diet Log: Utilizing a food log (see examples from Amazon here) will help you know what is going good and what is going bad with your diet. By noting down everything that you eat, you will be able to see your progress and be able to see problem areas. In addition, it becomes more difficult to eat unhealthy foods if you have to write them down after your meal or snack.

3. Consume More Fiber: Fiber makes you feel more full, and as a result you will eat less.

4. Stay Away From Crash Fad Diets: You will most likely recognize these when you have to question the health and realism of the diet. These diets may help you lose a lot of weight fast, but most likely it won’t be fat that you are losing; instead, water and muscle weight will be lost.

5. Eat smaller meals: It is better to eat 5 to 6 smaller meals per day, instead of the customary three large meals. This way you can avoid over eating (because it takes about twenty minutes for your brain to register that you have eaten enough) and, in addition, your metabolism will stay elevated.

6. Make Better Food Choices: Exchange unhealthy foods with healthy foods. For example, you can choose multi-grain bread instead of white bread.

7. Utilize A Non Stick Pan: With a non-stick pan, you will need less oil to cook food, and this will cut calories and fats.

8. Limit Your Alcohol Intake: Alcohol, especially beers, have a lot of empty (useless) calories. These type of calories are hard to get rid of. Reducing alcohol consumption can go a long way to reducing calories and in losing weight.

9. Avoid sugary drinks: It is too easy to consume a lot of calories when you drink them. Someone can drink a can of soda in only a few minutes, and gain unnecessary calories, carbs, and sugars in those few minutes. Instead, opt for healthy juices and water.

10. Exercise: To lose weight fast, this is a must. There is no way around it. Get motivated and try to work out three times per week for about twenty minutes each time. Once this becomes a routine, it becomes a part of life.

Losing weight is not easy because it takes dedication and motivation. Stay on track, make healthy decisions, and track your progress.

Exercise is the one that most people miss. It’s probably the most effective technique when it comes to losing weight, and yet so many people fail to exercise regularly. The thing that people need to realize is that regular exercise is a must if you want to lose a substantial amount of weight. So, suck it up and start working out people!

The only thing I’d add is that you need to change your diet bit-by-bit. First is to start replacing your favorite foods with lower calorie versions that are just as tasty (hopefully healthier). Lower fat cheeses, ice creams, lower fat turkey dogs instead of hotdogs, there are some really delicious products out there. If make yourself believe that you’re not denying your old habits, the small changes will stick and you can add more.

I was someone who had problems with weight, too. It is very hard to try to deal with loss, but we lack the discipline to realize that dream. At least not with the existing tips above, can help people like me to find a way to deal with the body more easily. Although in reality, it’s not an easy thing.

Thanks for the great post. It’s comforting to see that weight loss can be achieved just by changing your lifestyle. You’re absolutely right, crash fad diets don’t work, they just make you miserable.

Exercise is obviously very important, not just in a diet where you are aiming to lose weight but it should be incorporated into everyones way of life.

Exercise intensity is something I would recommend people get right. By exercising at the correct intensity for you plan, you will most likely find that you may not need to exercise for long periods.

In my opinion, these two tips:
4th tip (Stay Away From Crash Fad Diets) and 6th tip (Make Better Food Choices) are the most important for successful weight loss, because many people are snacking, snacking is one of the biggest weight loss mistakes, also fad diets are unhealthy, these diets can cause side effects.

That’s why i would go for healthy diet plans, such as Dash Diet plan!

A great post with good advices. I learnt the hard way that changing the lifestyle (exercising instead of watching TV) and the bad eating habits (not eating junkfoods between meals) are the best ways to lose weight permanently.

Regarding the exercises. It’s important to concentrate on strength building exercises. That way you are increasing your metabolic rate which will mean that you’ll be burning more calories for longer periods of time.
