How To Lose Weight Fast - 3 Easy Ways

Apr 9, 2008
Your sister's wedding is next month and you look like a puffer fish. You need to get rid of the excess fat and love handles, fast. You know that fad diets that your friends have tried didn't work. As the matter of fact, they look even fatter after the diet wears off in like just a couple of days.

How to lose weight fast in time for the wedding? Get these easy tips and start a healthy lifestyle today and you will be looking good just in time for the big event with 3 easy methods!

#1 Healthy eating

As mentioned above, fad diets are "trash" diets. Please don't think that you will be able to live with them as a sustainable weight loss or maintenance plan, because most people simply can't, and it's just not healthy.

So the best solution is to give your eating habits a little adjustment. Simply adopt healthier eating habits. It's that easy. I don't mean that you are going to eat only greens, and nothing else.

Listen to this: You can eat almost anything that you like, but you got to learn to make better choices. For example, you can choose plain water over sugary drinks. You can have your favorite fish n chips meal, but how about requesting for more salad and less chips portion? As a gauge, use the size of your palm or fist to approximate the amount of food that you should eat. Remember, you don't have to starve; starving is definitely not the ideal way to a diet.

#2 "Cardio" Exercise

Maybe you have tried doing sit ups and you are stressed out at the lack of results. Although sit-ups do work your abdominal muscles, they are unable to remove any fat by themselves.

Want to have a flatter tummy? Try "cardio" exercises. Cardio exercises would refer to those forms of exercises that generally involve the movement of every part of your body. The point is to get your heart rate elevated.

Doing sit ups will just help you to build on your abdominal muscles, without removing the layer of fat. Activities like swimming and cycling are some of the more popular cardio exercises that people love as sports, not just exercises. Maybe it's time to give your self a day out and cycle around the neighborhood.

Want to do something simpler? How about walking? Walking is the safest and easiest form of cardio exercise. Walk for 30 minutes 3 times a week. But remember it helps to break a sweat if you want to shed weight fast.

#3 Good Fats vs. Bad Fats

Fats come in two categories: the "good" fats and the "bad" fats. Many people have the wrong idea about fats in general. Not all fats are that bad. If you completely remove these "good" fats, then your body's fat burning ability will be slowed. This will cause it to store fats easier and you may gain weight as a result.

Examples of good fats are Monosaturated and Polysaturated fats; these can be found in most nuts, avocados, olive oils, fish, etc.

Examples of bad fats are trans fats; you really want to avoid these, look for trans fats on the back of nutritional labels. Quick tip: even if the nutritional label doesn't say trans fats on it, if the ingredients include anything that is "partially hydrogenated" that's a huge red flag and you should try and avoid these foods. "Partially hydrogenated" is code word for trans fats.
