Your weight not only affects your physical appearance, it can also affect your health, quality of life and even your self-esteem. Many people, who lose weight fast, find enormous positive changes in their life. That is why so many people are searching for ways to lose weight fast - yet, wish to do so in a healthy way, instead of using a "fad" diet.
It is always a good idea to talk to your doctor about a recommended weight loss program. He/She will be able to determine if certain weight loss techniques are okay for you to follow, depending on your health level.
In general, to lose weight fast, without detriment to your health, you should consider changing 2 different aspects of your life:
1. What You Eat.
2. Your Activity Level.
Here are 7 fast weight loss tips that usually can help anyone:
1. Decide on a diet food plan that you can live with. If planning "diet meals" seem too tedious, consider a "diet food plan." Two excellent diet food plans available are the New Nutrisystem Advance Diet or the Jenny Craig Diet Food Plan.
2. Add just 15 minutes of "activity" to your day. This could be as simple as setting a timer for 15 minutes and walking in place. Or, turn on the MUSIC and start dancing. Whatever you decide to do to add "activity" make sure you set a timer for at least 15 minutes. This will insure you don't "quit" before the 15 minutes are up.
3. Set a realistic goal and write it down. Even when you wish to lose weight fast, writing the goal down will actually help you visualize it better and give you the proper mindset to losing weight.
4. Increase muscle tone. Many weight loss experts claim muscle burns more calories. Try to incorporate a few muscle-building exercises into your day. Two easy exercises that you can start, without equipment, are:
1. Pushups - do just a few, add a few more every few days
2. Squats - again, do just a few, add a few more every few days
These two exercises will begin to increase your muscle tone, and if you have added the 15 minutes of "activity" a day, you are on your way to increase your body's muscle tone.
5. Add more fiber to your diet. Buy whole grain bread (not white EVER!). Eat oatmeal or whole grain cereal at breakfast, etc. Adding fiber to a meal will make you feel satisfied or full, faster. As an added bonus, it usually helps the digestion system "move" digested food & waste out.
6. Grill, Broil or Roast your meats. Or, if that is not possible, use just a small amount of PAM or spray oil, to quickly stir-fry your meat. In addition, choose lean meats.
7. Increase your "fluid" intake. This could be filtered water, green tea, white tea, low sugar juice (mix half juice with half water). This keeps your body hydrated. Many times people feel "hungry" when they are actually slightly dehydrated. In addition, keeping your body hydrated helps your body digest food better (including FATS), and it helps it get rid of toxins better.
Simply using the above 7 fast weight loss tips, can help you quickly drop the pounds. It is not so drastic as a "fad diet", nor do these tips impact your life to the point of being inconvenient. This way, you will have a better chance of not returning to old "fat" habits that may lead to gaining more weight, than when you started your weight loss goal!
