5 Tips to Lose Weight Fast

5 tips to lose weight fast explained.

Want to lose weight fast and safe, keep it off, and not count calories along the way? Use these tips to ease your way into a new lifestyle and a new way to think about food, dieting, and eating.

Drink lots of water.

Water is absolutely essential for an efficient running metabolism. Your body can not burn fat without it. Water, and only water, flushes your system of impurities, like fat that is in your blood stream due to a higher more efficient metabolism. You will need 8 to 10 glasses a day at least to lose weight fast.

Eat at least 4 meals per day.

Eating a meal revs up your metabolism, signaling your body to burn calories. It's like placing dry twigs on a dying fire. The twigs ignite and the fire gets bigger. Many of us skip meals to lose weight, and unless we're starving, it does not work. Our metabolisms slow down and wait for fuel (food) to function. When we eat four times a day, we are signaling our bodies to keep burning calories efficiently all day long. We should eat a meal every 3 hours or so to keep burning calories fast.

Never, ever stuff yourself.

Remember we said we did not want to count calories along the way? We do this by eating each meal just until we are satiated, not full. When we stuff ourselves, we give our bodies too many calories to burn, and we may gain weight. To help you remember to eat a little less each meal, drink a glass of water before each meal, eat slow, chew your food thoroughly, and use a smaller plate. This is vitally important. Never, ever stuff yourself.

Alternate higher calorie meals with lower calorie meals.

If you eat high calorie foods, like meats, cheeses, beans, and nuts on one meal, eat low calorie foods, like raw veggies and fruit on the next. This high fat/low fat "calorie Shifting" confuses your metabolism, so it does not slow down. It just keeps burning at maximum. This speeds up weight loss.

Get a food guide that will help you make healthy choices.

There are many healthy low fat and good fat food choices available in most any grocery store, but you need to know what to eat, and what not to eat. Generally, stick to the outer aisles of the grocery store to find fresh vegetables, fish, meat, and dairy. The stuff in the middle aisles is usually less good for you. Of course, many grocery chains have mixed up the store a bit, to pitch middle aisle stuff side by side with the good stuff. So read labels. Get a guide to go by. Write a list before you go to the store, and stick to it. And never shop hungry.

So add the tips I've outlined to your life gradually, and you will lose weight gradually. If you can, add them all at once, to lose weight fast. Additional resources are in the box below.
