There are too many guides on how to lose weight fast but most of these involve cutting down on food intake or do vigorous workout. These will make you feel hungry, unsatisfied and tired. If you do not have the iron will, you will abandon the plan of getting smart quickly. Below guide will help you loose weight fast and easy.
1. DECIDE FOR YOURSELF:
You are the only person who can decide when it’s time to start and no one else can decide for you or force you to do it if you don’t feel up to it. I happened to work with people who tried to lose weight, but they gave up soon after because determination and good intentions vanished immediately.
2. GO OUT FOR A WALK:
The benefits of doing an activity such as walking are innumerable and often underestimated. Walking requires no special efforts, it can be done at anytime and anywhere, it is a low-impact activity (as opposed to running and jumping) and it is a fat-burning activity. You can walk with any type of shoe, even running or gym shoes, and accompany the walk with music, podcasts or audio books. Try to run errands on foot rather than jumping on the bike or driving the car.
3. CREATE A VISION BOARD:
Search magazines or the Internet for images of a body, a house or anything else you like and hang them in a place in the house where you can always see them. Visualizing what you dream will help you reach it more easily.
4. AVOID LIQUID CALORIES:
No juices, fizzy drinks or sports drink. The daily dose of liquids should be 35-40 ml for each kg of weight and in addition 500-1000 ml for each hour of physical exercise. Also exclude the “light” carbonated drinks that activate the same “reward system” that is active when you eat sweets. These drinks will add only calories and you will still have hunger attacks.
5. GIVE YOURSELF A REASON:
Why do you want to lose weight? It is better to write it and keep the motivation always in sight: in the bathroom, in the kitchen, on the phone, in the car, anywhere. It must be something motivating like “You want to lose weight so you can run after your children or your dog without being out of breath” or “you want to wear a dress for my friends’ wedding.”
6. STRENGTHEN THE MUSCLES FOR MORE STABILITY:
Start by practicing balancing on one leg or on an unstable surface (sand, bosu ball or similar).These movements help your neuromuscular system to work efficiently, strengthen the core muscles and stabilize the muscles to prevent injury.
7. KEEP A FOOD DIARY:
Many people have no idea or underestimate the number of calories they take during the day. According to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, two groups (the first on a diet and the other not) that had weight, BMI, body fat percentage, level of education and similar career were asked to report the number of calories that were taken per day. Both groups underestimated the calorie intake by about 1000 calories or more. On the other hand, taking few calories can hinder weight loss because the cells go into “lean” mode and absorb more fat than they should. It is necessary to eat enough, to accustom the body to burn the accumulated fat.
8. Cut On Sugar Intake
To lose weight, sugar and carbs are the most important items to cut back. Cutting on these will make your body feed off of stored fat. Another major benefit of using less sugar is that it lowers your insulin level, which makes your kidneys shed excess sodium and water. Just cutting on sugar and carbs alone will have significant impact on body weight which will be visible in few weeks.
