Lose Weight Quickly The Healthy Way

Author : dve smit


A practical and healthy fat loss plan is to set realistic goals of losing a pound or two weekly. You won't be setting yourself up to fall short by trying to lose too much weight too soon, by setting realistic goals you'll be more likely to succeed losing weight. Trying to lose too much weight weekly is unhealthy and unsafe, and you'll be more likely to keep the weight off permanently if you let your body gradually adjust to the weight loss.

Losing a pound per week equates to losing 500 calories daily. Either consume less or burn it off by exercising. The healthy way is by doing both of them while still eating healthy and well balanced meals. If you only have to lose a few pounds then just dieting alone might be sufficient, however if you would like to take off a lot of weight dieting and exercise are a powerful combination. Bad eating habits and not enough physical activity tends to make the metabolism sluggish.

A lot of people don't think of the heart as being a muscle which can be made more powerful. However it's possible to make it healthier through exercising aerobically such as walking, jogging, swimming, bicycling, etc. A diet when combined with exercising has proven to quite effective in reducing weight. But don't be misled into thinking that just because you keep fit you can eat anything you want, it's possible to be fit yet unhealthy.

When you start a weightloss diet and cut back on the food you eat what takes place is that the body adapts and gradually it reduces it's metabolism and the fat burning process. That's how physical activity plays it's part, by helping to speed the metabolism back up and using up the unecessary calories. Aerobic exercise like walking, jogging, swimming, etc. tends to burn the extra fat stores.

When looking for ways to lose weight fast what you eat and when you eat plays a significant role. To keep your metabolism revved up try to eat 5 or 6 smaller meals rather than two or three huge meals. It'll keep your blood sugar levels and metabolism more constant.

Healthy ways to reduce weight quickly may include a change to a healthier diet plan. If you only need to take off a few pounds try replacing complex carbohydrates and whole grain products for refined or processed foods.

Vegetables, beans and lentils have a low glycemic index and releases glucose slowly and gradually and causing less of a spike in blood sugar levels. Fruit juice is a healthy choice to sodas, however make sure it's 100% juice rather than just flavored. An even better option is eating the whole fruit instead as it contains the natural fibers that's often taken out when processed. And whenever you can replace fruit or fruit juice in place of sugar or sugar sweeteners.

Make sure to get sufficient protein, you want to lose fat and not muscle. A good source of protein is meat, however whenever possible use lean ground beef, poultry or fish in place of red meat. Protein is the building blocks of muscle building.

Also reduce your intake of saturated fats and trans fatty acids that you consume by substituting them with monosaturated fats (found in olive oil and other heart healthy oils) and omega 3 fish oils. Many of the packaged foods that you eat today probably contain oils and preservatives which could result in undesireable long term health conditions.

If you're starting a weight loss program and dieting to lose weight fast keep in mind that although your cutting calories you should continue to eat a balanced diet. Follow healthy eating habits when trying to lose weight and you reach your goal in no time at all.
