The Top 20 Ways to Lose Weight Fast

Aug 30, 2008
Are you looking for some fast ways to lose weight? Look no further. These next 20 quick ways to lose weight are sure to give you that boost you need to get motivated for your weight loss goals.

1. Take losing weight one day at a time
Forget about the amount of work it will take to get to your weight loss goals. Just focus on making the right decisions TODAY.

Many people get overwhelmed and discouraged when they think about loosing weight because they feel it is too difficult. However, if you can just make the right decisions today, your weight loss will come without stress and very quickly.

2. Find a partner
Find a friend that shares your goals and make it a daily routine to call each other up and discuss your progress. Having your weight loss partner is likely to boost your chances of success on any diet by 1,000% or more!

3. Lift weights
It doesn't matter if you lift bodyweight, iron, sand weight or any other type of weight. The important thing is to consistently use muscle in your daily activities to help raise your metabolism.

4. Eat fewer carbs
Carbs will keep you from losing weight, it's just that simple. If you reduce your carb intake, you will automatically begin losing weight.

5. Set a goal
Set a deadline to lose the weight and write it down. Use a wedding, vacation, or other time sensitive event to motivate you for quick results.

6. Give up soda
According to a recent study, drinking one can of soda per day will add 10lbs. of fat to your body every year!

7. Grill or boil
Avoid fried meat, grill and use fresh spices and herbs for seasoning. You will find that your taste buds will become more sensitive to these spices over time.

8. Don't buy junk food
Never shop on an empty stomach. When you do go to the local shopping market, just don't buy any junk food. You will find that you will crave these junk foods less and less as each day goes by.

9. Eat protein for breakfast
99% of America eats a diet high in sugar for breakfast. This kills your bodies ability to burn fat. Go high protein or don't eat breakfast at all.

10. Give yourself a treat
Find healthier alternatives to your favorite "cheat foods". These alternatives should all be naturally sugar-free.

11. Use smaller plates
Smaller plates will promote smaller servings and this will be important if you still haven't gotten used to using the other tips I recommend.

12. Drink lots of water
Drink water when you are feeling hungry and you will get a 'full' feeling that will decrease your hunger cravings.

13. Don't eat everything on your plate
Never take servings that may be too big, instead take smaller servings and be willing to go back for more.

14. Eat five or six meals a day
Eating more frequently will keep you from getting too hungry and gaining fat.

15. Plan your workout sessions
Write your workout sessions in your journal or planner so that you can stay motivated to beat your previously recorded workouts.

16. Stay away from fad diets
Fad diets don't work. If you lose weight fast chances are that you will gain it back ( and more)
just as fast. It takes time to put it on and time to take it off.

17. Do several workouts a day
Find windows of opportunity in your day to be active. Things like taking the stairs instead of an elevator or doing sit-ups while watching T.V.

18. Measure your food
Try to make 50% of each meal protein and you will be less likely to eat the fat gaining carbs.

19. Keep frozen vegetables
The microwavable frozen vegetables available nowadays are a great solution to any cravings you may have.

20. Create Good Habits
Weight loss is not a destination, it is a habit. Consistently adding habits into your life that cause you to lose weight is the only way to get the results you truly desire.
