Some Weight Loss Tips
First, when people lose weight rapidly, especially via fad or crash diets, they are typically unable to maintain it because the weight they lose is often more muscle mass and water and less fat mass compared to people who lose weight gradually.
Cut out the sugar. It’s easy to say and hard to do for most of us but if you want to start seeing results you need to put down the cookies. If you’re serious about losing weight this should be your very first goal.
Eat 5-6 meals a day. Believe it or not, by eating more frequently you actually increase your metabolism which helps you to lose weight faster. So eat smaller meals more frequently and do not skip breakfast.
Eat more fiber. Next time you go grocery shopping pay attention to the food label and buy products with higher fiber content.
Adding fiber to your diet will help you to lose weight faster by filling you up.
Drink a glass of water before you eat. Filling up your stomach with water will help suppress your appetite.
That extra glass of water will keep you from overeating and help you to lose weight quicker.
Lose the scale and start measuring. Do you walk around with your weight tattooed on your forehead? Didn’t think so. So get out the measuring tape and start tracking your problem areas (thighs, belly, butt). Do you want to lose weight or look better?
Like so many parts of life, safe, successful, and sustainable weight loss is more about the journey and less about a scale-based destination and rapidly approaching deadline.
While there are certainly ways to accelerate your weight loss efforts, it’s important to understand that shedding pounds too quickly can actually backfire.
