junk food across the globe, the obesity epidemic is becoming a
serious issue such that many people are starting to worry about
their health. Let's face it, obesity is highly dangerous as it
can create a lot of complications for your health like coronary
heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes and even cancer.
rid of those huge slabs of fat should be one of your goals as
your lifespan is greatly reduced. It's a proven fact that sooner
or later, obese individuals will face health issues which can
endanger their lives. You better start tackling your weight
issues and also taking care of those preventive measures to
stop your condition from worsening and to make progress instead.
Because if you exercise plus continue eating lots of the wrong
kinds of food, your progress will be stagnant or worst, you
will gain even more unwanted weight. Here are top 5 ways to
lose weight fast.
Burn More Calories Than You Consume
be realistic, if you want to lose weight, you need to spend
your daily caloric intake plus even more additional calories
which are stored as fat. For example, if you consume say 5,000
calories per day, you'll need to burn more than 5,000 calories
daily to lose weight. This is why you'll often hear this phrase
"burn more calories than you consume". This is indeed
so true. To ease your weight loss task, your goal is to lower
your calorie intake but still gives your body the necessary
nutrients for it to function optimally meaning eating more nutrient-dense
low calorie foods.
all calories are created equal. Calorie amount does not mean
anything for instance 200 calories from white bread is not the
same as 200 calories from rolled oats. The latter has much more
nutritional value than the former. You'd better ingest calories
from quality foods nutrition-wise which keep you satiated for
longer period of time, prevent hunger pangs and at the same
time, helps you lose weight faster due to their metabolic enhancing
properties. These foods are known as super foods as they are
nutrient-dense and this plays a key role in elevating your metabolism
which in turn result in faster weight loss. An active metabolism
equals to faster fat burning and higher fat loss.
taking an active role in your grocery shopping and buy the right
kinds of foods like oats, sweet potatoes, greek yogurt, eggs,
chicken breast, fish, cottage cheese, vegetables, nuts and fruits.
These are healthy items to have in your nutrition arsenal. Dave
Ruel and Karine Losier have a great resource about healthy nutrition
and fat burning recipes called Metabolic
Cooking which I highly recommend you to check out.
over the days of big portion meals which result in an excess
of calories in one sitting which does no good to your gut. Your
body can only assimilate a certain number of calories per meal
as the rest will naturally get stored as adipose tissue which
are fat deposits. You don't want that to happen again, so eat
your meals by portion control that is not too much of anything.
Eating a well balanced meal is key for fast weight loss. Don't
worry about getting unbearable hunger pangs as this will not
happen with the foods you will eat. These foods will keep you
satiated for hours and will maintain your energy levels as well,
not creating a spike in insulin levels and a crash later on.
a fist sized portion of each food is recommended. By following
the portion control strategy, you can easily have several small
meals per day. It's not unheard of to see weight loss adherents
eating 4-6 small portion controlled meals every 2-3 hours while
also adhering to an exercise routine and lose weight fast.
Never Starve Yourself
true you can lose weight by starving yourself and cutting your
calorie intake drastically but the end result is only temporary.
There will not only be side effects for your life and health
but you won't achieve anything concrete as far as weight loss
results are concerned. Most people who go on a starvation mode
eventually can't tolerate it anymore and end up in a binge eating
disorder due to their insatiable hunger after following the
starvation strategy. In the long run, these people gain more
weight. So it's useless tormenting your body through all this
ordeal and not gaining anything in the end.
might be a simple tip but trust me, water will help anyone who
wants to achieve weight loss. Water is life and if you don't
consume enough water on a daily basis, you won't lose weight
as fast. But don't expect to lose much weight though simply
by drinking water and not exercising and eating properly. But
coupled with a proper workout routine and healthy nutrition,
water will help you shed the pounds faster.
need enough water to hydrate your body throughout the day and
throughout your exercise sessions which are vital for optimum
performance. Not having enough fluid in your body can lead to
constipation and the latter is bad for weight loss. You should
ensure effective bowel activity for optimum weight loss. So
drink water as your main beverage, go for at least 1.5-2.0 litres
and sip throughout the day. Your body and weight loss efforts
will be thankful for that.
Perform High Intensity Interval Training(HIIT) and Muscle Building
of doing your normal cardio which can be running at the same
pace whether in nature or on the treadmill, try varying the
speeds. For example run at high intensity for 1 minute, then
drop the pace and run at moderate intensity for another 3 minutes
and lastly at low intensity for another 5 minutes for a total
of 9 minutes. Repeat the process again for 3-5 sessions for
a total of 27-45 minutes. This way you don't need to run miles
and miles at the same pace for hours but instead increasing
your pace while achieving same or better results. HIIT is a
great weight loss strategy which can produce faster results.
big mistake made by weight loss adherents is sticking to only
cardio training and bypassing bodyweight exercises or weight
training. If you want to fasttrack your weight loss goals, start
building some muscle. Muscle building will give you the upper
edge as muscle mass naturally promotes your metabolic activity
thus enhancing fat burning. Perform some bodyweight exercises
or lift some weights on your non cardio days.
are not the only ways to shed pounds fast but in my opinion,
