How To Lose A Lot O f Weight Quickly And Safely

May 30, 2008
This may seem to be an impossible task. Is it even possible to accomplish?

It is possible if we define quickly. A huge amount of weight loss will very possibly only lead to health problems.

The goal weight loss that the normal person should hope and try to lose a week is something like 1 or 2 pounds a week. That is a reasonable and healthful, and more importantly safe amount of weight to lose a week.

If you are losing weight at that 1 or 2 pounds a week speed, then be happy, because you are losing as fast as you can and still keep good health. Lose 1 or 2 pounds a week and you probably will not be tempted to stop the diet.

As I write this I can almost hear the comments,just realize that's just the way it is. You just can't lose much more weight any quicker. Losing a lot of weight quickly is just as impractical as trying to spot reduce. If you lose more than 2 pounds a week you are probably losing muscle, not fat. Muscle loss is not our goal.

Really fast weight loss is normally water-loss, also not fat-loss.

In order to determine what a safe weight loss is, use the 1% rule of thumb. If you weigh 200 pounds. you can safely lose 2 pounds a week.

Make this statement your weight loss creed: "slow weight loss is lasting weight loss".

It has been proven again and again that the slower you lose weight, the more likely you are to actually lose FAT, rather than water or muscle tissue. It has also been proven that slow weight loss is easier to maintain. Don't forget to start a safe exercise program along with better eating habits.

Fight the urge to put chew on something while watching TV. This is where a lot of people attempting weight loss fall off the wagon.

Doesn't this plan appear to be workable? TV diets and diet pills don't work. Exercise alone doesn't work. There are folks who have exercised a lot and actually gained weight. A good sensible plan is a combination of many of the above points.

You are reading this you care about your health. Hopefully, you now realize that fast weight loss is a state of mind. Do it right.

There are other areas to investigate such as colon and liver cleansing which will start you on your way to weight loss that can be more easily maintained.
