When you think “man I gotta find some fast ways to lose weight” you are not alone.
The problem of weight loss is ongoing for a huge segment of the population. What you have to do is get rid of the weight and then maintain the weight loss through a lifestyle that supports a healthy, slim, aggressive body.
Here I will show you some fast ways to lose weight that also create lifestyle habits that help you lose weigh through daily choices rather than a dangerous crash diet that can get you on a roller coaster ride, get rid of the weight once and then keep it off.
Once you get started on the way to your ideal weight you will find pounds melting off and energy levels going up.
Cut off all sugar
First let’s look at your daily routine, do you drink pop, or have a daily latte or energy drink? Start now to substitute them with other drinks more of the time, water and unsweetened tea are two choices easy on the waistline.
Whenever you are thirsty for a pop or other sugar drink, try a tall glass of water before you enbibe as that may help you past the strongest urges. Look, losing weight is not going to be easy you will have to make some changes but you can do it.
What I want to do is encourage you to start making changes now and to give you some ideas that make weight loss less painful.
I recommend you begin today to create a habit fore weight control by replacing at least one meal a day with a healthy smoothie recipe for weight loss. There are scores of smoothie recipes available that you can experiment with and enjoy.
Replace one meal
If you replace one meal each day with a smoothie you’ll find it one of the fast ways to lose weight. The benefit of all the choices, is that you will have enough variety that you can always find a wonderful meal replacement that refreshes and fills you up.
All the nutrients of fresh fruit and vegetables as well as all the fiber in a smoothie will make it easy for you to skip a big meal and by extension take in less calories. Less calories is the key, you will find that you can cut your food intake while increasing your energy levels.
With the Scarsdale diet some have lost as much as 15 pounds in 14 days, focusing on eating fresh fruits and vegetables. Hey, that sounds like a smoothie, before it’s been in the blender. You are allowed to snack throughout the day with celery and carrots as well as enjoy a light breakfast daily, such as toast and half a grapefruit. The Scarsdale is a popular diet that has produced many success stories and has the added attraction of actually being free to eat, even if it is limited intake.
Now that you have made a decision to drink less sugar drinks (if you drink soda pop daily and you stop doing so, you could see a 7 pound weight drop in 30 days) and you have committed to a smoothie meal replacement each day, you are beginning choices that can become lifestyle habit.
These two fast ways to lose weight create long term weight control through force of habit, or lifestyle. That being said, let’s move on to some popular crash diets like those used by movies stars.
A lemonade detox
Beyonce Knowles is famous for a number of things, however she has made a diet famous as she has used it successfully.
The “lemonade diet” has been reported to help you lose weight in as little as 10 days.
The diet is simple, you take in no other food except lemonade. A minimum of 6 glasses a day, but really all you can drink for two reasons, one, you will want to do everything you can to get that full feeling because this is going to fell like starvation. That feeling is appropriate, since you are literally starving yourself for 10 days.
The second reason is that lemonade is a powerful detoxing agent and will give your body a deep cleansing of all the junk you’ve been storing up in your fat cells and colon. Gee this sounds swell, for me its going to be a healthy smoothie for weight loss.
Once you begin any diet you must drink a lot of water, keep in mind that the world renowned “Mayo Clinic” says that a male should drink 13 cups of water every 24 hours a woman should drink 9, hydration is vital especially if you are going on a crash diet.
I encourage you to get started today, you must begin, and the first step is often the hardest. I also encourage you to make the changes permanent by using healthy smoothie recipes for weight loss and drinking lots of water in place of pop as two fast ways to lose weight.
