How To Lose Weight Fast – Rapid Weight Loss Tips That Work
In this article, I’m going to talk about how to lose weight fast. I’ve been there and done that and know from experience. I lost over one hundred pounds in a year by following a solid plan and doing simple exercises. The biggest thing you have to do is just follow a plan.
So let’s begin by discussing tracking your diet.
This is the most important part of the whole process. You have to get very serious about monitoring what you eat and burning more calories than you take in each day. if you burn more calories than you eat then you’ll lose weight.
Most people find it hard to stay on track because they are not disciplined.
Counting calories and eating fewer calories than your body needs is hard, but can be done. You have to change your mindset and treat your food like a reward. You can only have one vice for a long time. I used to have a chocolate bar every day and now count those calories! I don’t spend as much time at the gym so my metabolism stays high and I burn more per day.
Your metabolic rate determines how many calories you burn per day.
Your muscle weighs more than your fat. When you increase your muscle mass you raise your metabolic rate. So the more muscle you have the more water weight you will lose. Water weight is NOT fat.
Another way to burn more calories is to increase your activity level.
Lightweights like 200 lbs will help you lose weight, but to gain muscle mass you must eat more. It’s the law of energy vs. work, so if you want to eat more food, then you must exercise more. If you want to eat less food, then you must reduce your activities. I can walk for an hour, run for an hour, swim for an hour, and do some elliptical for up to an hour without my clothes on and I’ve barely eaten a few pounds.
Your metabolism determines how fast you lose weight
and if you have a high metabolism, you will probably eat less than someone with a low metabolism. So the trick is to increase your activities. Increase your calorie deficit (less food eaten per day) and lower your calorie intake (more food eaten per day). This is the fastest way to lose two pounds per week.
