Are You Desperate
As a result, these people are easy prey for the 'fly-by-night' weight-loss merchants who target people who are desperate to lose weight quickly by promising miracles from their various products that apparently show them how to lose weight quickly and with little effort. The fact remains that the body can lose weight easily enough but it fights every step of the way when you want to lose fat!
When people are desperate to lose weight and follow one of the 'fad' weight-loss programs on the market, they do lose weight quickly. However, the vast majority of it is water, stored carbohydrate, protein and very little fat. The human body views body fat as a precious resource, something that helps us survive if we are ever faced with a famine.
Of course, following a 'fad diet' may achieve dramatic weight losses virtually overnight but unfortunately, 'biological alarm bells' start ringing in the body and when these people return to normal eating habits the weight piles back on, and almost always with re-inforcements!
The only way to lose fat and keep it off is to lose it slowly so the body thinks it is being well fed and can afford to get rid of the excess flab. Let's face some facts, even if you're desperate to lose weight, it has taken you 10, 20 or even 30 years to become overweight. Do you really think you're going to get it off in a few short weeks! We need to be realistic with our weight-loss expectations but more importantly, our fat-loss expectations.
Nevertheless, there are some simple ways to speed up the process so if you are desperate to lose weight quickly you can do so as the days, weeks and months go by.
If you use these simple and fun ways to lose weight your body fat and weight will continue to spiral downward and you can easily achieve this without starving yourself or performing grueling exercise programs.
The first step in in how to lose weight quickly and most importantly body fat, is to follow a suitable nutritional plan. Here is a basic outline of what that should look like:
5 or 6 small meals a day
A portion of protein with every meal
More low-density carbohydrates and less high-density carbohydrates
Normal, 'everyday' foods
Plenty of clean, filtered water
If you would like a more specific nutritional plan that fulfills these criteria, then get a copy of my e-book, Look Good, Feel Great!
Many people incorrectly assume that an exercise routine needs to be difficult or intense in order to be effective. In actual fact, the most important aspect of an exercise routine is that it is consistent; it needs to be performed it at least 5 days a week. Exercise is essential if you're desperate to lose weight quickly.
It doesn't matter what type of exercise you perform or how long you do it for, what matters most is that you do it! The type of exercise you do is completely up to you. It may be walking the dog, walking by the river with your partner, an aerobic session at the gym or local rec centre, a workout in a gym or at home, a boxing session with your trainer or simply peddling or stepping away on an exercise machine.
Choose the type of exercise that you enjoy doing and can see yourself doing long term. Finding fun ways to lose weight ensures that you will make it a permanent lifestyle habit that will help you lose weight (and fat) quickly and most importantly, keep it off.
However, let's face it, if you're desperate to lose weight quickly you're going to do just about anything to get the weight off!
Here are some workout routines for toning that you can do in the comfort of your own home.
There are many supplements that claim to promote fat burning and therefore weight loss in the body. Only use products that are proven to be effective.
Thermogenics are one group of supplements that have been shown in research and in real life to be effective at promoting weight loss. They should be the first choice for anyone who is desperate to lose weight quickly. XLR8 Thermogenic is an example. Thermogenics are known as 'fat-burning accelerators', which simply means they speed up the fat-burning process in your body; they take you from 'Point A' to 'Point B' faster.
Unfortunately, thermogenics aren't for everyone. If people suffer from high blood pressure, use blood pressure medication, are over 65 years of age or under 18, or are pregnant or nursing, then they should avoid using thermogenics.
Thyron is a good alternative to thermogenics and is safe for everyone to use. It supports thyroid and adrenal function so therefore can assist your weight-loss efforts without stimulating the nervous system.
Glucose disposal agents (GDAs) are another group of supplements that are effective at promoting the fat-burning process in the human body. They help to minimise insulin secretion by the pancreas and also assist insulin in its function.
Insulin is a storage hormone that promotes fat storage as well as inhibits fat mobilisation and utilisation (fat burning) by the body. By keeping insulin low, you make it easier to access and use stored body fat as a fuel.
GDAs also help to get rid of sugar cravings that some people get in the afternoons and evenings. BCN's MultiSpice contains a powerful glucose disposal agent, cinnamon, that has been shown to help keep blood glucose levels stable and assist with avoiding sugar cravings.
Finally, thyroid-support supplements are also beneficial. Whenever someone wants to lose weight they should mildly reduce their food intake. However, by doing so, over time, their metabolism slows down due to a reduction of their metabolic rate resulting from down-regulation of the thyroid gland.
Specific nutrients can actually help to up-regulate thyroid function and prevent this metabolic-slowdown from occurring. This is essential if you are desperate to lose weight quickly.
Overall, if you are desperate to lose weight quickly and keep it off, forget about following the latest 'fad diet' or trying to starve yourself, deep down you know these approaches don't work anyway, right?
The principles covered here show you how to lose weight quickly and best of all, keep it off forever! Plus, they are simple and fun ways to lose weight.
All you have to do to get the results you've been dreaming of for years, especially if you're desperate to lose weight quickly, is to simply put a little bit of effort into making some simple changes to your lifestyle and then be patient by allowing enough time for the results to come.
If you do, you will be amazed at how easy it is to lose weight and most importantly, lose fat, and keep it off for the rest of your life.
Plus, the added benefit of following this simple 3-step weight-loss system is the feeling you will have by doing it. There is no better feeling that being fit, healthy, strong and of course, being happy with the way you look. Make the commitment, take the steps and reap the rewards that follow. You'll be glad you did!
