The quick weight loss tips that I'm about to share with you are effective, they're safe and most importantly they work! The only catch is you have to put them to work! Ready? Good, here are your tips...
Tip #1 Think Long Term
I know, I know. These are supposed to be tips for fast weight loss.
Let me explain...
Many people quit their weight loss program when they fail to see results quick enough. Thinking long term will help keep you going.
Also, many people try unhealthy diets or unsafe pills and supplements that promise easy and rapid weight loss.
There are many diets that do cause quick weight loss. The thing is the results rarely ever last because all they do is mess up your metabolism, setting you up to eventually gain all the weight back.
Having a long term view will help you avoid short term unhealthy solutions.
Tip #2: Set A Goal
Losing weight can be a big challenge. You might have to make some drastic changes to your current lifestyle and you have to stay motivated.
Set an exciting weight loss goal and you're more likely to stay motivated to do the necessary things to lose the weight.
Tip #3 Follow An Expert
I strongly recommend hiring a good Fitness Trainer. He or she will teach you how to workout correctly, eat right, and keep you motivated.
Trainers don't come cheap - especially good ones. I think it's a worthy investment if it leads to an improvement in your health and how you look and feel.
If the expense is too much, consider working with the Trainer once or twice a month for program design and instruction. That's much cheaper than seeing him or her 2 or 3 times a week.
Alternatively you can buy a few good highly reviewed instructional books and/or dvds.
Tip #4 Eat For Weight Loss
This might be the most important quick weight loss tip. You should set an eating schedule and have your meals planned ahead of time.
Why set an eating schedule?
To lose weight quickly your metabolism needs to be fired up all day.
The best way you can make that happen is to eat four to six small meals a day spaced 3 to 4 hours apart. Setting a schedule will help you avoid going long periods without eating. This is crucial for quick weight loss.
Have healthy, balanced meals preplanned. If you spend time wondering what your next meal will be you'll end up eating fattening fast food or skipping meals.
Trust me, that will kill your results.
Prepare meals that combine complex carbohydrates, protein and good fat.
Do you ever read food labels? If not, you won't lose weight quickly if you don't start. Read labels so you can limit your intake of saturated fats, trans fats, sodium and sugar.
Tip #5 Make A Workout Plan
Your workout plan should include two things:
1. the days and times you will exercise
2. the exact workout that you're going to do each day
To lose weight fast you have to plan for it!
Tip #6 Have A Balanced Exercise Program
A balanced exercise program includes cardiovascular exercise, weight training and stretching.
Tip #7 Get A Workout Partner or Join A Support Group
This is one of the best quick weight loss tips that I can offer you.
Most likely you know others who want to lose weight - family members, co-workers, friends...
Having a partner can have a positive influence on your results.
You can help each other stay motivated and hold each other accountable. If one of you doesn't feel like working out, the other person can give a push. If you're craving that bowl of ice cream, your partner can remind you that it will ruin the hard workout that you struggled through.
Now, put these quick weight loss tips to use and I guarantee you'll lose that weight!
