How To Lose Weight For Teens

Mar 20, 2008
While it's not advisable to lose weight rapidly, it's the way most people want to do it. Especially teens. But sometimes a quick weight loss is the best plan to jump start a long term program.

If you are interested in losing weight, as quickly as possible, you will want to continue reading on. One of the many ways that you can go about achieving a fat weight loss or rapid weight loss is by reducing the foods that you eat. When reducing your food consumption, it is important that you only reduce your consumption a little bit.

A detox is a really fast way to jump start your plan, followed by a low carb diet. This isn't a long term plan, but it's a great way to get started. After you've lost a few pounds, you can switch to a low calorie/low carb diet plan. You'll want to keep your carbs at this point down to about 100 carbs or less.

Unfortunately, many individuals who want to achieve fast weight loss think that they need to stop eating altogether, even if it is for two or three days. That is something that you do not want to do. Once you resume eating again, you will likely gain all of your weight back, almost automatically. It is also important to mention that starving yourself is dangerous to your health.

In conjunction with lowering your food intake, it goes without saying that you need to reduce the amount of sweets or junk food that you eat. For quick weight loss, you will want to completely wipe out junk food from your diet, even if it is only for a short period of time. This means that if you want a snack, you should grab an apple or an orange instead of a chocolate bar or a bag of chips. With candy and other sweets being high in calories, you may see a fairly large decrease in your calorie consumption by eliminating them from your diet.

Exercise is one of the best ways to start losing weight. The thing about using exercise to achieve fast weight loss is that it is a little bit tricky. With exercise, you may not notice a significant weight loss right away. For instance, it typically takes most individuals at least a week or two to notice an improvement in their appearance with the use of exercise. With that in mind, the more overweight you are, the sooner you may see a decrease in your weight, often quickly. Although your first thought may be to start exercising as much as possible, right away, you may want to refrain from doing so. If you aren't usually physically active, it is best to start out slow. This should significantly reduce your risk of injuries.

Another one of the many ways that you may be able to achieve fast weight loss or rapid weight loss is with the use of a cleanse. These cleanses are commonly referred to as colon cleanses or detox weight loss cleanses. Cleanses work by removing toxins and extra weight, actually waste, from your body. It has been said that most individuals have at least seven or eight pounds of waste stored in their bodies. A weight loss cleanse or a colon cleanse should help remove those toxins from your body. Should you decide to try a colon cleanse or a weight loss cleanse, to help you achieve a fast weight loss, it is important that you read all directions given to you. Some cleanses have a strict diet that you must follow.
