There is no set of magical rules on earth that tells one to lose weight in the blink of an eye. It comes with dedication, consistency and sacrifice. Same simple rules, done simply, nothing extra added. Here are these 7 easy ways to lose weight fast:
1. Diet Change
In order to lose weight fast, your diet has to change drastically. You will determine how fast you lose weight by what you eat and what you cut out. That is, eat mostly vegetables and fruits and more proteins than carbohydrates.
2. Remove the Food Scale
“Portion control isn’t about measuring; it’s about ordering two appetizers instead of an entrée and cutting back on bread if you have pasta.”
—Bethenny Frankel, author of Naturally Thin
3. Write down what you eat for one week and you will lose weight.
One way to know how much you eat and how you should eat to achieve your goals, is to write down how much you eat in week. This should be done before starting your diet, and you should eat as you would normally eat, noting down the amounts you are taking in. By the week you start, you can know what to cut down, what to add to your diet, when to eat and when to stop.
4. Wait until your stomach rumbles before you reach for food
Much of why people add extra weight is down to the fact that they eat when they are idle or bored, etc. It is important to set a regulator on the timing of your eating and keep yourself busy to distract you from comfort eating.
5. Exercise Routines
Plan a time table to help you exercise morning, noon and night. This should be a daily and a timely activity. In order to stay motivated to be consistent with these routines, add motivational messages to your alarm, to help you rise up. Or you can schedule a session with a friend, motivated by the fact that you wouldn’t want to keep them waiting.
6. Cook your food
Cook your meals yourself, as you would be able to know what calories are needed for your body, and you can plan themed meals for the week or month instead of ordering on days that you are tired that might cause you to eat junk.
To keep yourself consistent at it, you could cook for friends on a monthly basis or every 2 weeks depending on your schedule. If you can’t cook, please learn as it would do a lot of good. There are a few restaurants that take cooking classes (look them up). It would help keep your mind occupied and you will get to learn what works well.
7. Sleep More
Sleeping helps lose weight fast. In fact, a recent study found that sub-par sleep could undermine weight loss by as much as 55 percent! The good news is just a few simple tweaks to your p.m. routine can mean serious weight loss success.
