Lose Weight and Get Skinny Fast

Aug 27, 2008
There are so many fad diets out there and they all claim to be the best, the simplest, the easiest and so on. If that is the case, then why is it that everyone who tries these fad diets gains the weight right back?

It's because fad diets do not work! You know what else doesn't work? Diet pills, calorie-counting, and diets that tell you to cut out essential foods and food groups.

But if you want to know the best ways to lose weight quick, it's easy! It isn't a huge list of tasks. Nope, just seven easy simple ways to lose weight quick!

1. Get your mind into it. This is possibly one of the most important ways to help you lose weight. You have to get focused and stay focused. Believe that you can do it. Know deep down that it is very possible for you to lose the weight that you want and to keep it off. Keep your goals in mind all the time and you'll see how easy it becomes to lose weight!

2. Eat more often. Instead of just three square meals a day, go for something like 5 to 6 smaller sized meals a day. By eating more often, you are training your body's metabolism, much like exercise. With a great metabolism that is up for the challenge, losing weight will definitely come easily.

3. Avoid trans fats! Yes, there are fad diets that tell you to cut out certain foods. And yes, I just told you that fad diets don't work and I also just told you to avoid trans fats. Here's the difference though: trans fats aren't actual food and certainly aren't good for you! What are trans fats best for? Clogging your arteries. Not something you want if you are trying to lose weight. So just avoid trans fats all together as much as possible. Along with that go sodas and other highly processed foods.

4. Eat plenty of fresh whole foods. Once you start exercising, you'll want to increase the amounts of protein and vegetables you take in. Throw in some fruits and complex carbs for good measure. Wholesome fresh foods are essential for successful weight loss and for maintaining you slimmer self.

5. Exercise! Start with something like 2 to 3 times a week for starters. Make sure to have plenty of cardio in your workouts. Now, cardio doesn't mean that you have to work out for hours on end 2 to 3 times a week. You could easily get by with 15 to 30 minute cardio workouts 2 to 3 times a week. That would be a great start. Cardio will build your endurance and will help strength your metabolism.

6. Don't forget the strength thing! Resistance training will help you build muscle, which is essential to weight loss. Surprising, I know. But if you think about it, once you start to build muscle, those very muscles that you work in your cardio and resistance workouts will be able to burn even more fat for you. So start with 30 minutes 2 to 3 times a week and gradually increase the time and frequency as you get better.

7. Stay motivated! If you are going from little to no exercising to a 2 to 3 workouts a week, or even if you are going from eating junk foods and fast food to eating wholesome fresh foods, it can get difficult. Make sure to stick to it! On those especially tough days, instead of giving up entirely, allow yourself a treat here or there. By treat, I'm not talking about pigging out at a fast food joint. Maybe a snack here or there that would be on the "avoid" list. Just make sure it's few and far between.

So there you have it. Seven very easy ways to lose weight quick! The more motivated and devoted to your weight loss goals you are, the faster you will lose the weight. Stick with it and you will easily keep the weight off. So go ahead and start to lose weight quickly!
