General Guidelines for Fast Weight Loss

Aug 17, 2007
It is not easy to lose weight quickly. For a fast weight loss you must be extremely motivated and focused on your program. Rapid loss of weight is recommended for those people who have been suffering from obesity for an extended period of time. If they don't consider losing weight then they might develop disorders like high blood sugar, high blood pressure and heart attacks. Many obese people are already suffering from these disorders. Many people in the more developed countries face the problem of obesity due to their lifestyles and should immediately consider losing weight their health.

Many people would like to lose weight quickly but they lack the motivation to do so. Many people also opt for starving themselves in order to lose weight more quickly. But starving oneself is not necessarily the best way to achieve rapid weight loss. This is because people who manage to lose weight after starving themselves often gain the weight back again. The secret to fast weight loss is a proper combination of diet and exercise.

If your goal is to lose weight fast, you should avoid fatty and oily foods. Also eat foods that are low in carbohydrates. This is because carbohydrates more readily convert to fat and hinder your fast weight loss program. But a few carbohydrates are necessary as they provide the energy that the body needs for mental and physical activity. You can also focus on eating more salads and vegetables for fast weight loss. You can choose from the hundreds recipes for salad dressings from your dietician or from other sources like the internet and magazines.

In terms of exercise, you can start with light cardiovascular exercises. You can also take up running, walking, cycling and climbing. These exercises will burn the excess fat in your body and keep you fit and healthy. In fact you will feel a lot more confident once you start achieving your weight loss and people start complimenting you on your new body.

The most important thing that I would like to mention again is to stay motivated. Some people start off very motivated for a fast weight loss program but soon lose interest and are back to their old ways. Remember weight cannot be lost in a day but it can be accelerated by your persistent efforts and commitment. Remember, it can take weeks to months to lose weight.

Also, any program that involves rapidly losing weight should be monitored by a doctor. It is important to consult a physician before starting your program.
