Lose Fat Fast. Is it Possible?
The search for ways to speed up your weight loss is over. With these seven tips, you could be seven pounds lighter in the next two weeks. Be ready to make some changes, your thinner self will thank you.
The first thing you need to know if you want to lose fat is that you need to BURN fat. Burning fat is all about using up more calories than you take in. If you eat more calories than your body uses throughout the day, these additional calories will be stored as body fat. To prevent a build up of body fat you need to either reduce your calorie intake or increase your daily activity levels – doing both will have the best effect on reducing body fat.
This simply means that the more fat you want to lose then the greater the amount of calories you have to burn off. To help you achieve and speed up your fat loss, here are few things that helps.
Speed up your metabolism. Exercise speeds up metabolism. The more active your lifestyle the more likely you are to have a quick metabolism and lose weight.
Metabolism does control weight, this is true. What most people don’t know is that they do in fact have the ability to control and adjust their metabolisms and thereby control their weight. Exercise does speed the metabolism up. The more active your lifestyle the more likely you are to have a quick metabolism and lose weight. It may not be healthy for all of us to get into a highly active lifestyle all at once but it is possible to get there as quickly as you safely can as an individual.
Make water your best friend
While it should come as no surprise that water is your best weapon in weight loss, some still haven’t caught on. By increasing your water consumption (preferably distilled water) you will help your body flush out toxins that are impeding the weight that you want to lose. Sip water through out the day,
Water helps to speed digestion as well as many other processes in your body. And if your body is running more smoothly, then you can burn more calories along the way.
A new appetizer
If you are looking to cut back on the foods that you are eating, here is a trick that works for anyone. Start your lunches and dinners off with a small cup of soup or green salad. Of course, the soup shouldn’t be cream based; a broth will work very well.
The warm soup or salad will help to make your stomach feel fuller so that you eat less at the meal that follows. Have that bowl of soup before you go to curb your temptation for larger portions.
Take away the salt
A lot of the extra weight people carry is due to a large intake of salt. Salt can be found in many of the things that we consider healthy frozen lunches, canned soups, and condiments.
Take some time over the next two weeks to look at the labels of the things that you eat to see how much salt (as sodium) are in the foods that you have been eating. Avoiding prepackaged foods is the best way to remove the salt from your diet.
Take away the sugars
While we don’t want to admit it, sugar is keeping us overweight and unhappy. And sugar isn’t just a sweet bar or a icecream, it’s also in the white breads and pastas that we love.
But if you want to lose weight, it’s time to find better ways of eating. This can include switching to brown rice and whole wheat bread. And of course, limiting your sugary snacks to once in a great while.
Get moving to lose fat fast
When you are trying to lose weight, you need to start exercising. If you haven’t exercised before, you are in luck. Studies have shown that you can walk just a few times a week and burn the calories that you want to burn.
Thirty minutes a day is the best way to lose the pounds faster, but if you don’t have that much time, try to split it up over the course of the day – say ten minutes three times a day, or just try to fit in three good thirty minute walks a week.
Just like your mother said. Eat your veg
And don’t forget about your fruits and veggies. Though fruits do contain sugar, they also contain fewer calories than your traditional sugary snacks.
If you really want to jumpstart some weight loss, eat steamed vegetables at every meal. Not only do they have a slightly diuretic effect (makes you lose water weight), but they also energize your body to keep making great choices.
When you want to lose weight, you need help, but with these tips, you have everything you need.
