So You Want to Lose Weight for Free and Fast

Jul 31, 2008
We Americans are bad about wanting everything now and weight loss is no different. We want to lose weight for free, fast. Well the question is how bad do you want it and how hard are you willing to work for it? If you want to lose weight fast, there is no room for error.

With that being said, you have to be realistic about your weight loss goals. Personally, your chances of being successful are going to be much greater if you do not put undue stress on yourself to meet unrealistic goals. As far as, the "free" part goes, all the information you need to lose weight can be found on the internet or the library.

Really, it is as simple as taking in less calories than you body requires to maintain its current weight. The books or internet will give the necessary calorie count on the foods and the calorie burning numbers for exercises. Oh, and if you want to get the weight off quickly, you are going to have to exercise a lot. Have you ever seen the show "The Biggest Loser?" This shows' contestants lose weight very quickly, but they eat a very restricted diet and exercise vigorously several hours per day. If you want results quickly, you are going to have to make drastic changes in your lifestyle. Are still sure you want to lose weight quickly?

Most people want to lose weight quickly because they are trying to look good for a certain event. There is nothing wrong with this, but in most cases this goal is unrealistic. The people that have the best success with losing weight and keeping it off are the ones that are doing it to be healthier. They do not put the pressure on themselves to lose a certain amount of weight in a designated period of time.

Losing weight is a process. Not only do you need to start eating sensibly and exercising, it is a good idea to evaluate what may have lead to the overeating in the first place. If you need to lose 10 or 20 pounds, it could be due to your metabolism slowing down and in that case, revising the way you eat and adding moderate exercise to your weekly routine will take care of that amount of weight over the next several months. But for many of us, the problem is bigger than that and it is important to get to the root of why we are overeating.
