Are you looking for easy and quick weight loss tips? Here is the good news. I have a list of tips that if followed, you will see dramatic, but healthy weight loss just in time for the summer season. Ready...!
1. Eat breakfast everyday. It is the most important meal of the day. Breakfast will get your metabolism burning fat and will help ensure an easy and quick weight loss. Drinking an 8 ounce glass of grapefruit juice also helps to speed up your metabolism. Studies show that dieters who skip breakfast don't lose weight as rapidly as those who eat a well balanced, low fat breakfast.
2. Eat high fiber. A high fiber diet creates that full feeling, which in turn diminishes the craving for more food.
3. Take a muli- vitamin/ mineral each day. While losing weight, your nutrient intake maybe less than what your body requires and we want to ensure a healthy weight loss.
4. Stay away fattening snacks, especially fried foods. Replace potato chips and fried chicken with skinless grilled chicken, salad, vegetables and fruits. Stay away from soda and beer.
5. Don't rely on your scale! Rely on how you look in the mirror and how you feel. During the course of your diet, fat, muscle and water levels in your body are reduced. These three components of your body weight may be altered unevenly during the period of your dieting because of increased activity and reduced calorie intake.
6. Get exercise. Walk or exercise as much as possible, even if it is only 20 minutes, 3 times a week. Aerobic exercise reduces your appetite, burns calories and fat and it also reduces stress. Weight training is also important.
7. Chew your food slowly. Your brain usually has a bit of a lag time before it realizes that you are getting full. You are also letting your body get all the nutrients it needs before entering the digestive system.
8. Drink lots of water. Water will help flush out your system, but it also helps to move important nutrients through your body to where they are needed.
9. When you are done eating, get up and move away from the table. How many times have you kept eating because there is food right in front of you?
If you incorporate all these easy and quick weight loss tips, you will be well on your way to a safe and healthier you. I truly hope this article provides you with an insight into how to quickly, but safely lose weight. It is my hope that you never get involved in a weight loss program that makes you lose weight fast in such a way that causes loss of muscle and loss of health. Programs like these will only cause you to put the weight back on faster than you took the weight off.
