Reach Your Goal Weight in Less Time Than You Think

Aug 17, 2007
We all hate the thought of starting a diet, weight seems so much easier and quicker to put on and an eternity to take back off, while losing a large amount of weight rapidly does the body and your health no good, losing say 10lbs in initial rapid loss can give you an incentive to carry on. If you are the type who just cannot wait or who needs that little boost to get you started then there are several points to be aware of to ensure you lose some weight quickly. Losing 10lbs or less quickly isn't that hard but you will need to totally avoid all foods which contain sugar and starch and be very strict with your daily calorie intake, you will need to cut this down to around 1,000 to 1,200 calories a day in order to lose the weight quickly.

The principle behind losing weight

The principle behind losing any amount of weight is simple just remember that the body always uses the energy source first which is the most readily available, this usually happens to be sugar and starch which is why it is essential to eliminate them from the diet thereby forcing your body to burn the fat instead. It is also very important to remember that any sugar that the body doesn't use up in daily exercise will store on your body as fat. The following are all tips to help you lose that weight quickly

* Drink plenty - drinking plenty of water will help to speed up the metabolism, this makes it easier to burn off fat and lose weight, it also flushes the body of harmful toxins and keeps the skin healthy and your body hydrated.

* Eat a healthy breakfast - never skip breakfast, the old saying "breakfast is the most important meal of the day" is true, try to eat a breakfast that is packed with protein because this will get you off to a great start and give your metabolism a boost.

* Follow an exercise plan - devise an exercise plan for at least 20 minutes every day and stick to it religiously, exercises which burn off the most fat are aerobic ones. Aerobic exercises include walking, jogging, swimming and riding a bicycle.

* Keep away from snacks - never be tempted to nibble on snacks throughout the day and if you must then try sticking with fruit or raw vegetables. Remember to keep a bowl of fruit nearby and pre-cut vegetables such as carrot and celery into nibble size pieces and put them in the refrigerator in zip lock bags so there handy.

The biggest challenge most people who lose weight face is not putting the weight back on once they have reached the desired loss, changes will have to be made to your lifestyle to ensure that you are able to maintain your new weight. The most important points to remember are watching the amount of calories that you eat in relation to those that you are burning off and to keep active and stick with some form of daily exercise.
