Three Tips on How to Lose Weight Fast

April 8, 2012 · Posted in Fitness 

How to lose weight quickly? Many people who want to burn body fat want to do it as fast as possible. While it isn’t possible to burn 10 pounds of fat in a few days, it’s definitely possible to burn one to two pounds of fat per week. You just have to know some tips and tricks on how to do it. In this article you’ll read about three of them.

1. Track what you eat and drink

If you don’t know how many calories you get daily (and with each meal), you should start tracking your calories. It’s very difficult to eat less that you need (in order to force your body to burn stored fat) if you have no idea about how many calories you get every day. Track everything that you eat and drink (if it has calories) and use one of many fitness websites to estimate calories consumed each day.

Now that you know how many calories you provide your body every day, it’s time to find out how many calories you should consume to lose weight. Firstly, use one of many daily caloric needs calculators to find out your maintenance calories (calories needed to maintain weight). You should eat 20-30% less calories than calories needed to maintain weight in order to lose weight. Track your calories all the time to lose weight faster.

2. Eat healthy foods and avoid processed food

Your eating habits have a tremendous impact on your weight. If you consume too many calories, exercise may not be enough to burn body fat. If you want to lose weight fast, you have to start eating the right fat-burning foods.

Consuming 20-30% less calories than your maintenance calories is a good first step toward losing weight. However, for optimal health, you should understand that losing weight isn’t about calories – it’s about nutrients. Focus on nutrient-dense natural unprocessed foods such as vegetables, fruits and nuts and avoid processed food.

3. Exercise at least three times a week for at least 30 minutes

To lose weight even faster, you should introduce more exercise into your weight loss plan. Engage in physical activity at least three times a week for at least 30-60 minutes and exercise in a fasted state (to make sure that your body burns body fat).

Which exercises are the best for weight loss? Walking, jogging, cycling and swimming are great for everyone. Three one-hour swimming sessions will significantly speed up your weight loss.

Following these three simple tips will definitely help you lose weight faster. However, keep in mind that losing weight is mostly about patience and determination. Don’t look for magic pills because they don’t exist. Focus on eating healthy foods and getting enough exercise. You’ll surely quickly see first results. Good luck!
