How to Lose Weight Fast

In this age of staying fit, almost everyone is health conscious. Everyone wants to stay fit and look slim or athletic. People now-a-days join gym to lose weight fast, but fail to do so because of their food habits and unhealthy diets. May people even do Yoga, meditation, body massage, follow healthy diets provided by dieticians, etc. No one wants to look ugly and fat, just because fitness is the talk of the town and you can see people running with their jogging shoes on early in the morning in the parks. Losing weight fast is not as easy as it seems, you have to follow proper diet, perform exercise and maintain a very healthy routine. You stop eating carbs which increase the weight unnecessarily and unwontedly. You should immediately stop eating oily and junk food.

If you are successfully burning 500+ calories than you intake daily for 7 days consecutively, then you will be able to lose around 800 grams to 1 kg weight in a week’s time. In case you want to lose weight at a quicker rate, you need to intake less and increase the exercise time. For example if your intake 1,000 – 1,200 calories per day and you perform exercise for an hour daily, you will be able to lose around 1 – 2.5 kgs in a week’s time. The weight loss will be more, if you weigh 125+ kgs. It will be hazardous if you cut your calorie intake any further. If you stop taking starch & salt, it may help in losing weight a bit more quickly at first, but it will be fluid loss and not fat loss. As soon as you start limiting the intake of sodium & starches, fluid retention & fluids will start reducing in your body resulting in weight loss up to 2 and half Kgs.

Many weight management gurus recommend eating a healthy diet which is starch free, doesn’t contain any added preservatives, animal fat free & doesn’t contain any dairy products. For quick weight loss, weight management gurus also recommend intake of soya products, egg whites, 95% lean meat, non-fat dairy products, fish, dark leafy vegetables, fruits & skinless poultry breast.
