Guest Post: Tips For Fast Weight Loss
Without a doubt, the quickest way to lose weight is to eat as little as possible, replacing food with water and other diuretics. Other fast-acting solutions include many of today’s most popular diet programs which will cut out the majority of your food or have you drinking carrot juice for a week straight. For many, fast weight loss is achieved through specific diet pills which help to speed up the body’s metabolism and curb cravings.
Most of the ideas for quick weight loss are neither healthy nor safe. Eating as little as possible, while it may drop the numbers on the scales, is not good for the body’s overall function. Your energy levels will drop, muscle discomfort will increase, and if these habits are followed over long periods of time, major body systems can even start to slowly shut down, as they are no longer able to function at their highest level.
For those who need to lose ten pounds in a week, that goal is not realistic unless you plan to starve yourself for the entire seven days. Excessive exercising, combined with very little food, large amounts of water, and plenty of coffee will no doubt help you lose weight quickly, but unfortunately most of what you lose will be water weight which will pop right back up as soon as you resume normal eating habits. More importantly, such unhealthy eating practices do nothing to help you to establish long-term healthy weight loss habits.
Try not to wait until the last minute to lose weight. If you have put on extra weight and it is your desire to have a slimmer, healthier body, start building smarter diet and exercise habits today. There are healthy ways to accomplish your goals, but it will take some time. Try not to let yourself get into a stressful conundrum where you need to lose weight fast for a special occasion because this will only lead to the temptation to starve yourself, or to start taking potentially harmful weight loss pills and diuretics.
The quickest healthy way to lose weight quickly is to immediately change all bad habits. Cut sugars and sweets from your diet. Drink a lot of water, especially before meals to cut down on hunger and appetite. Chew gum to curb cravings. Reduce the amounts of carbs, replacing them with more protein and healthy fats such as peanut butter, olive oil, and nuts. Eat more salads, fruits, and vegetables. Exercise 30 minutes to 2 hours every day. Finally, get enough sleep.
Weight loss can be achieved in many ways. The question is whether you will do it in a healthy manner or a unrealistically fast manner. Before attempting any major weight loss, consult a physician or nutritionist for thorough and wise assistance.
