Finding it very difficult to get rid of that incessant fat from your body? Tried almost every other technique in the book to find that you still look the same a week later? Then here is an article that would surely help you achieve your dream of losing weight fast. These tips would enable you to lose weight quickly and effectively without compromising on your health.
Tips to Lose Weight Fast
Eating and Drinking Considerations
There is no way you are going to lose weight without cutting down your calorie consumption. So that would probably be the first area you would need to work on. In addition to substituting certain foods with healthier alternatives, you need to make some essential sacrifices to become lean and fit within a short span of time. So let’s see what we need to do in this category.
What You Need to Eat
If you need to lose weight fast, you need to cut down on foods that contain excess sugar, fat and starch. This means cutting down on foods like meat, poultry and dairy products while focusing more on fruits, green leafy vegetables, soy products, non fat dairy foods, lean meat, shell fish, poultry breasts (the skinless variety), fish (like salmon), and egg whites etc.
Eating vegetables would keep you full for longer periods. So try substituting foods like white grain products (that can cause sudden hunger pangs due to quick digestion) with vegetables which take time to digest and so would keep you full in addition to dealing with issues like water retention.
Sacrifice Your Indulgence
Most of the time it is not the main course that contributes to our weight issues but the side dishes and starters that come along it. For instance, we may want to have some fried chips with the main meal. Or we would always want to have some kind of sugary dessert after every meal. And then there are some of us who love to snack heavily in between meals.
Make it a point to sacrifice at least one of your favorite indulgences. We are not asking you to stop everything, but rather give up on just one food that you regularly eat. This would at least reduce your body’s calorie content on a daily basis. So start working on it from today!
Have Regular Meals
Whoever mentioned that skipping meals would lead to rapid weight loss apparently did not take the health factor into consideration. True, skipping a meal can make you lose weight but at the cost of your health. As a result, you would end up looking frail and weak instead of lean and fit.
Rather than skipping meals to lose weight, try curbing down on the amount of food you eat in every meal. Divide your meals into 6 portions that you can eat at regular intervals throughout the day. This would keep you full for longer periods and would also prevent you from snacking in between meals.
Choose Water over Diet Sodas, Smoothies and Energy Drinks
Many people fail to realize that diet sodas, energy drinks, smoothies and even beer could pack as much as 100 calories into your body per one serving. Now you do the calculation and determine how many calories you stand to gain if you opt for these drinks. Drinks that contain high levels of carbohydrates and sodium can also contribute to your weight issues by causing water retention.
When compared to the above mentioned drinks, the best option that is calorie free, healthy and ‘FREE’ is water. In addition to removing harmful radicals (responsible for weight gain) from your body, water can also prevent water retention and improve body metabolism. Drinking plenty of water every day is one of the best ways to lose weight quickly and effectively.
Opt for Antigas Pills
Individuals with gas problems would tend to bloat immediately after a meal due to gas buildup in the abdomen. If you are one of those individuals, then an anti gas pill could help you immensely in these situations.
Popping one of these pills after every meal would prevent gas buildup in your stomach and get rid of existing gas bubbles in your abdomen and digestive tract, thereby reducing bloating and giving you a leaner, flatter tummy.
Dieting and exercising go hand in hand when it comes to losing weight fast. With diet your body may become slim. But exercising is the only way you can get rid of the flabby skin that starts showing out as you slim down.
The Perfect Combination for Your Body
Even though there are plenty of exercises that help burn calories on a daily basis, the best way to lose weight fast would be to opt for a combination of cardio, spinning and intense training routines that focus on multiple muscles of the body.
Choose exercises that would help you burn at least 200 calories at one go. Opt for interval training wherein you would mix a slower exercise with short bursts of high intense exercises. This way you would end up losing weight faster and not feel a thing. A good way to push yourself further without even realizing it is to drink a cup of coffee (either black or with skimmed milk) about half an hour before starting to exercise. This way you would feel more energized and stick to your exercise routine with gusto.
Eating and sleeping continuously would make you fat and we don’t deny that. But a sleep deprived body would also make you gain weight. Lack of sleep would make your body and mind lethargic. While your body would refuse to cooperate with you for exercises, your mind would fail to steer towards healthy food choices during meals.
Again, an undisturbed sleep of 5-6 hours can improve body metabolism and muscle tone. So make sure you get at least a couple of hours of uninterrupted sleep every day.
Did you know that a single session of sex can get rid of almost 500 calories from your body? Sex is one of those rare exercises that gives you immense pleasure and helps you lose weight at the same time. So make it a point to have frequent sex with your partner (at least thrice in a week) to lose weight fast.
Want to know how to lose weight even faster while having sex? You do the rocking by getting on top. More movement from your end means more calories to burn. So try getting in control by getting on top and lose weight without even knowing that you did.
