You want to know the secret to fast weight loss? Of course you do - roughly two thirds of the population would like to know how and be able to lose weight fast. It is not that complicated, but it does call for determination and desire. You must have a burning desire to lose weight and the determination to follow a plan and see it through till you reach your goal and continue on beyond that. I say go beyond because if you stop when you reach your goal and go back to your old eating habits your weight will return and your effort will have been for nothing.
So what is the secret?
The secret is not really a secret; you will surely have heard or seen comments about healthy foods and junk food and know that the two don't go together. So the key to losing weight is to eat healthy food and make sure you get sufficient exercise. To lose weight your body must burn more calories than it receives by way of food. It is as simple as that.
What Should I do?
There are good diet plans available which are designed to help you lose weight quickly and safely. There are also others which will lose weight for you, but with a possible health risk. At the bottom of this article you will see a link to three recommended weight loss programs, one being a vegetarian program.
On the other hand you can do a good deal for yourself by making healthy meal choices.
Your diet should include a variety of foods:
Fruit - apples, berries, grapefruit, kiwi fruit, oranges. Grains-whole wheat flour, oatmeal, brown rice. Vegetables - broccoli, carrots, pumpkin, black beans, potatoes, cabbage. Milk-yoghurt, soft cheese, ice-cream. Meat and Beans-lean meats, fish, poultry, nuts, black beans.
The above is a very small list of the foods you can choose from. If you are interested in devising your own menus you may like to go to the USDA site; http://www.mypyramid.gov/ which has a lot of information on healthy eating.
You came to this article looking for fast weight loss. Yes, you can lose weight quickly, up to 9-10 pounds per week or may be more, but that is not without some risk. Rapid weight loss can lead to difficulties for some one who has pre-existing health problems or is obese. Losing weight too quickly can also mean that your skin will not adapt rapidly enough to the changes in your shape and will develop unwanted wrinkles. To avoid this, limit weight loss to 4-5 pounds per week and apply a moisturizer to your body each day. The surest and safest way to lose weight is to follow a sound balanced diet. The cost is a small investment to make to improve your health and well being.
