The question, “how can I lose weight fast” comes up over and over again.
You see it being asked all over in places like yahoo answers and forums.
The problem is most of the answers given are written by idiots who know absolutely nothing about weight loss or fitness.
Before I answer the question “how can I lose weight fast”, we need to bust some myths.
Myth 1: Starving Yourself
To keep it short and not drone on about all of the reasons why you shouldn’t starve yourself, I’ll keep it simple. Starving yourself will temporarily lead to weight loss the problem is your body will quickly adjust to the lack of calories by slowing your metabolism.
Myth 2: Fad & Crash Diets
If anyone tells you that you can lose 25 lbs in 2 weeks they are misleading you. Is it possible? Yes, but 90% of it will be water not fat. Your goal is to lose fat is it not? Your body simply can’t burn that many calories without serious side effects. You would have to burn over 102,000 fat calories.
Myth 3: Take This Magic Pill
Hate to break it to you but there is no magic bullet, not Acai Berry or anything else. By the way for anyone interested in Acai Berry, just to let you in on a little secret but there is no research about Acai affecting weight loss.
So we come back to the question again “how can I lose weight fast?”
Well it comes down to those two dreaded words, diet and exercise.
I’m not going to go into all of the details on how to lose weight because it would take several pages of information to lay it out. To bottom line it for you though and leave you with some tips:
For your diet, start by cutting sugar out of your diet and add fiber to it. For exercise research has shown that weight training and interval training are the most effective means of fat burning.
I can’t tell you how many times I have answered the question “how can I lose weight fast” on yahoo answers trying to debunk all of the bad information out there. It really comes down to how dedicated you are to losing weight.
If you are serious then I would recommend a couple of guides that I personally have reviewed and I know that they are effective.
For beginners who want to learn how to properly diet I would recommend The Diet Solution. There is a lot of good advice in this guide about dieting and what to eat and what not to eat.
For people who are more dedicated and already eat well, I would recommend BeachBody’s Insanity. This is one of my favorite programs out there when it comes to exercising. The workout videos are nothing short of insane. The great part is you can keep your own pace but even going slow it still kicks your butt. Definitely top notch work and extremely effective exercises.
The question is, are you willing to put in the work to lose the weight? If you’re not then don’t bother to even go to those pages because you will just waste your money.
