How To Lose Weight And Fat Fast

Apr 5, 2008
The best way to loose weight is to focus on effective and natural weight loss through a reduction in calories and increase in physical activity, few ever listen to this suggestion. This advice should be easy to comprehend, at least you would think it was, a third of overweight Americans and millions globally, would disagree with this advice. However, once you are overweight you can't wait to lose it again whether it is for a wedding, vacation or just for health reasons.

The hard thing for people to understand is it is easier to maintain your natural weight than loose extra pounds once you have put them on. Even though many people know this subconsciously very few actually plan to ensure that weight gain doesn't happen to them.

Studies have shown that it is more likely a person who has lost weight using a calorie controlled diet, even if they actually enjoyed it, are more likely to go back to their old eating habits at some point. There are many reasons why you should follow a natural weight loss regime and not become overweight, according to experts.

The importance of maintaining the correct weight is more than just for looks especially as the number of health problems related to weight and obesity grows. If you think about it, losing excess weight by natural methods is the most acceptable way to get rid of those extra pounds but too many people want a quick fix system.

If you are planning to use a natural weight loss approach then its success will depend on the meals you eat which should be low in fat, high in fiber, some protein and carbohydrates. If you were looking at a meal then this would be a baked potato (carbohydrate), the vegetables would be the fiber and a little meat, is the protein.

Dietitians also say that the body has a capacity to retain dietary fat more than calories for regular foods so weight gain is more likely. Don't fall into the fat-free trap where manufacturers keep coming out with low-fat or fat-free versions of their best-selling foods despite the fact that Americans are getting fatter anyway.

Whilst completely false, the perception is that you can basically eat exactly what you want provided it is fat-free but there are still calories in the food which can easily be converted to body fat. This is a trap that many people fall into and forget it's about eating from the correct food groups, and if you have to snack make it a small healthy one.

Schools of thought differ on this subject but many nutritionists agree that eating smaller meals with a snack every 3 to four hours or between meals could be beneficial providing main meals are not missed. Determination, will power and belief should be aspects of your natural weight loss program if you really want to look well and be healthy.
