The Fastest Way To Lose Weight!
The fastest way to lose weight is a combination of different strategies that all target body fat and excess weight from different directions. When combined together these principles show people how to lose weight quickly and best of all, keep it off long term.
These principles are generally easy ways to lose weight for most people. They can be incorporated into a person's lifestyle and can be maintained long term without any difficulty.
This combination uses the most effective principles from the four 'Lifestyle Factors'. The Lifestyle Factors include:
Fastest Way To Lose Weight: NutritionThe first 'Lifestyle Factor' we will cover is nutrition. This is the area that causes the most confusion and mis-information when it comes to providing people with easy ways to lose weight.
Keep your blood sugar stable and insulin lowThe first step people need to take if they want to discover the fastest way to lose weight is to find ways to keep their blood sugar stable and their insulin level low. This may be done by controlling their intake of carbohydrates. Carbohydrates have the largest impact on your blood sugar level. Therefore, it simply makes sense to control your intake of this macronutrient.
Unfortunately, we have been told by many so-called experts over the years that we should eat a high carbohydrate, low fat diet if we want to lose weight (fat) and that it is more important that we focus on our overall calorie intake rather than the amount of carbohydrates we have or the source of the carbohydrates.
Whilst overall calorie intake is definitely important and is perhaps the 'golden rule' when it comes to weight loss, if you want the fastest way to lose weight, then you must reduce your intake of refined, grain-based carbohydrates like, bread, pasta, rice and cereals.
The mistaken belief that we can consume more low-fat, high carbohydrate foods without gaining weight is a major factor that has contributed to the ever-growing obesity problem that we have in our society today.
In saying this, there is no need to follow a low-carbohydrate diet either. Even though low-carb diets use the same principle of suppressing insulin release, they are very hard to stick to long term, may cause a deficiency in a variety of nutrients and tend to lack fibre.
Don't skip mealsOne of the first strategies people employ when they want to lose weight is to skip meals or to starve themselves. Of course, this is one of the worst things people can do if they want to lose weight!
It may seem ironic but one of the fastest ways to lose weight is to eat more frequently. Meal frequency needs to be controlled to some extent and should be based upon a person's metabolism and hunger.
For example, as a person's metabolism increases it will have a direct impact on their hunger as well. Accordingly, they should increase their meal frequency. It is important to never feel hungry if you're serious about losing weight and keeping it off long term. There is certainly no need to try and starve yourself if you want to lose weight.
Therefore, if you want to lose weight and like many people you only have one or two meals a day, you may want to start reducing your portion sizes slightly and then increasing your meal frequency, perhaps to three meals a day. Then, keep increasing your meal frequency (as your metabolism and appetite increase) over a period of moths until you are having 5 or 6 small meals a day.
Reduce your intake of grain-based foods and dairy productsOne of the most effective, yet little-known principles that is also one of the fastest way to lose weight, is to simply reduce your intake of grains and dairy foods.
Since our physiology is based on our ancestors' physiology from thousands of years ago, the closer we can eat to the way they ate the better off we'll be from both a health perspective and a weight-loss perspective.
You see, grain-based foods were introduced with the advent of agriculture about 10,000 years ago. It is thought to have originated from the Middle East and/ or perhaps northern Africa. Then, about 6,000 years ago animal husbandry was introduced and with it came the use of dairy products.
Since our physiology is based on diets from thousands of years prior to agriculture the introduction of 'foreign' food sources less than 10,000 years ago means that our physiology still hasn't adapted to this 'new' style of eating.
As a result, whenever most people eat these food sources their body has a tendency to retain fluid. This is an inflammatory response because the body isn't used to having these types of foods. Of course, some people can tolerate grain and dairy foods better than others. However, as a general rule, if you want the fastest way to lose weight, reducing, or better still, eliminating these foods from your diet is one of the relatively easy ways to lose weight fast!
Fastest Way To Lose Weight: SupplementationDespite what the supplement industry would have you believe, there are really only a few supplements that make a significant difference when it comes to weight loss.
Let's face it, supplements are just that, a supplement, to a good diet and training program. They are not magic pills and will not make up for a wayward lifestyle.
However, supplements, when used correctly, can make a difference with losing weight quickly and do make a component of the major lifestyle factors.
However, it is important to select the best weight-loss supplements and then ensure you use them correctly to get the best results from them. Of course, there are supplements that are beneficial for helping to improve your overall health and well-being, but not that many for assisting your weight-loss efforts.
Here are the best supplements that are a component of the fastest way to lose weight:
There is plenty of information about each of these supplements on this website. However, in summary, thermogenics can help you speed up your metabolism, give you an energy boost and can force your fat cells to release stored fat into the blood stream which the body can then use as a fuel source. XLR8 Thermogenic is a good example.
Glucose disposal agents (GDAs) can help your body dispose of glucose more effectively and therefore keep your blood sugar level stable, insulin level low, and can help you burn off body fat more effectively. BCN's MultiSpice contains a number of glucose disposal agents that are effective at helping you stabilise your blood sugar levels.
Supplements like, selenium and iodine, can help support thyroid function, which helps to keep your thyroid gland up-regulated. This ensures your metabolism stay elevated and helps you burn off body fat faster and therefore lose weight faster too. Thyron is probably the bet thyroid-support product on the market today.
There are many supplements that may assist the fat-burning process in your body but when it comes to the fastest way to lose weight these are the best supplements to use.
Fastest Way To Lose Weight: Aerobic ExerciseAerobic exercise is one of the fastest ways to lose weight. It is important to incorporate it into your lifestyle as often as possible. Ideally, the fastest way to lose weight fast is to perform the aerobic exercise at a high level of intensity or in an interval fashion.
Not only does high intensity aerobic exercise and interval training burn off the most amount of body fat and keep your metabolism elevated for longer post-exercise, but the generation of lactic acid stimulates the release of growth hormone (GH) from the pituitary gland. Growth Hormone (GH) is the body's most powerful lipolytic (fat-burning) hormone.
Probably the easiest way to perform high intensity exercise and definitely the easiest way to perform interval training is to use a stationary bike or a programmable treadmill.
Plus, to maximise the amount of fat burned during the exercise session and ensure the aerobic exercise is a component of the fastest way to lose weight, it is best to perform the exercise in a mildly hypoglycaemic state, i.e. in the morning before breakfast or after a resistance training workout. Plus, take a thermogenic prior to the session and then wait 20-30 mins after the session before having your next meal.
The aerobic exercise should be performed at least 5 days a week.
Fastest Way To Lose Weight: Resistance TrainingWhen it comes to resistance exercise as a component of the fastest way to lose weight, lifting weights sounds like it is counter-intuitive. However, resistance training really is one of the easy ways to lose weight.
Firstly, it is important to realise that limiting your food intake whilst resistance training means that you body is unable to increase your muscle mass. Therefore, you will not put on weight.
Furthermore, you will burn extra calories during the exercise session, preserve your muscle mass so the majority of the weight you lose is fat and will also create a mildly hypoglycaemic state, which will make your body a more efficient fat burner if you perform aerobic exercise immediately after it.
Ideally, the resistance training should be done at least 3 times a week for best results.
There you have it! These are the most effective principles for burning off body fat and losing weight fast. Collectively they make up the fastest way to lose weight. If you incorporate all of the strategies covered here into your lifestyle you will be absolutely amazed at how quickly you can lose weight.
