How to Lose Weight Naturally and Quickly

Aug 27, 2008
You've seen them. They're everywhere. Diet pills, weight loss supplements, fat loss drinks, all of those gimmicks. And the worst of them all: fad diets that make your head spin! I bet you've tried most, if not all of these things. And I bet that all of them have let you down, failed to deliver on their promises. Why is that? Because they are making it so much more complicated and confusing than necessary.

The secret to fat loss is that it is really very simple and basic to understand. Just like the KISS philosophy ("Keep It Simple Stupid"), the best way to lose weight is to keep everything simple and basic. The human body is made up of very basic building blocks and are put together and used in simple ways. Once you understand that, then you definitely have the secret to fat loss down pat.

There are two really basic and really crucial components to healthy weight loss.

1. Nutrition : this means eating the best and highest quality whole foods and limiting (or eliminating) any and all processed foods

2. Exercise : while proper nutrition can lead to good health, exercise is the key to weight loss and true all-body health and you cannot ignore the need for exercise, especially the fat burning type for those who are looking to lose weight

So the best way to lose weight is to combine a healthy, high-quality, nutritious diet with regular exercise. It is THAT simple. See? KISS method.

Nutrition

Proper nutrition is key for everyone. This includes eating nutritious whole foods, instead of processed foods. That does not mean you MUST shop at Whole Foods either. What you should be doing is going to the supermarket and shopping in the fresh vegetable and meats sections, instead of the middle aisles that have all those processed foods that make you gain weight. Believe me, the packaging and marketing make processed foods very tempting but they are, quite possibly, the worst food group you could ever eat, especially if you want to lose weight.

One of the most important building blocks of the human body is protein. So make sure you eat good amounts of protein. Greens are also very important because of the vitamins and minerals they provide. Carbohydrates (and sugars) are less important and less helpful in your weight loss efforts. When you are exercising, your body loses some of the vitamins and minerals through sweat so make sure to eat plenty of protein and greens to build your body back up.

One of the most important parts of good nutrition: water. Yes, plain old water. Not soft drinks, not sports drinks, not coffee. You lose a lot of water when you work out so make sure to keep yourself hydrated. Water is also a very effective way to rid your body of toxins, an important part of healthy weight loss. Electrolyte-enhanced waters are good but stay away from waters that have sugar added in for taste; this will not help you lose weight.

Exercise

When it comes to exercising, this also is simple and basic. You should set aside as much time as you can, without straining your schedule. If 15 minutes a day, 3-4 days a week is all you can manage, start with that. Anything is better than nothing. If you can handle 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week, all the better.

When you are exercising to lose weight, make sure to increase your heart rate as much as you can manage safely; you are going to want to make sure you push yourself to the point of sweating. There are basic exercises (remember, KISS method) you can do that will help you achieve your fat loss goals. Basic everyday exercises like running, walking, biking or lifting weights are all great exercises to start off with. Once you get more comfortable, you can take it up a notch and really get it going with fat loss.

The key with exercising is to know your own personal limit. Push yourself to it and gradually push your limits further. That will greatly help you lose weight and lose fat. Don't over work yourself otherwise you can either hurt yourself or just get uninterested in exercise, which defeats your goals for weight loss.

Kiss Method

Here it is in a nutshell:

1. Eat whole foods that are nutritious and healthy, with a focus on losing weight

2. Exercise as often as you can while regularly pushing your personal limits further, focusing on losing weight and staying healthy and fit

If you combine these two very simple guidelines, you have the best way to lose weight; it's the secret to fat loss everyone has been looking for. See? Simple!
