Best and quickest ways to lose weight fast

Updated on June 25, 2012

Having extra weight or fat over your body enhances the risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure, cancer and many more.

You know the drill when it comes to “How to lose weight?” -- take in less calories, burn more calories. And you know all weight loss plans or diet plans are not as good as they seem. You should find simple things that you can do on daily basis to lose weight. Here are some easy rules and tips that can answer to your questions like

How to lose weight fast?

How to burn fat?

What are the quickest ways to lose weight

What are the best diet plans that help lose weight quick? etc


1. Breakfast Done? Bring water in you:  At breakfast, you can drink orange juice. But during rest of the day, focus on water instead of juice or soda. The average American consumes an extra 245-260 calories a day from soft drinks. That's almost 8000 a month and 95,000 calories a year or 25 pounds!


2.Split you meal: A 2001South Asian study calculated that when men ate parts of their morning meal at intervals over five hours, they consumed almost 35% less calories at lunch than when they had a single breakfast. Other researches show that even if you eat the same number of calories distributed this way, your body releases less insulin, which keeps blood sugar steady and helps control hunger.

3. Go for a walk for 45 minutes:  Suggesting 45 minutes instead of the typical 30 is that a Duke University study found that while 30 minutes of daily walking just helps to stop gaining weight. It just helps to stop you bulking more. But exercise more than 30 minutes helps to lose weight and fat loss. It helps you burn 300 calories in a day with three miles of brisk walking (almost 45 minutes) could help you lose weight of 30 pounds in a year without even changing your diet.

4. Google an online weight-loss program: A University of Vermont study showed that online weight loss programs help you lose weight. The researchers followed volunteers for 18 months. Those assigned to an Internet-based weight loss program sustained their weight loss better than those who met face-to-face in a weight loss plan.

5. Turn you life into Blue: Have you ever observed many fast-food restaurants decorated in blue? No?? It’s because the color blue functions as an appetite suppressant. So try to have dinner in blue plates, dress in blue when you come to eat and also try covering the food table with a blue cloth.. Conversely, avoid red, yellow, and orange in your dining areas. Studies find they encourage eating.

6. Clean your ward-robe off: Once you've lost a bit weight and got a better figure, throw out or give away every piece of clothing that doesn't fit. The idea of having to buy a whole new wardrobe if you gain the weight back will serve as a strong incentive to maintain your new figure.

7. Hang a mirror in front of you: One study found that eating in front of mirrors minimized the amount eaten nearly by one-third. Looking yourself in the mirror reflects back your inner goals and determinations and reminds you why you are trying to lose weight??

8. Eat 90 percent of your meals at home. You're more likely to eat more and eat more high-fat, high-calorie foods -- when you eat out than when you eat at home. So try to have almost 6 dinners a week at home. Helps a lot to control your diet and quick weight loss.

9. Wash something thoroughly: Try to wash a floor, couple of windows, your car and bathroom tiles at least once a week. Rubbing your elbow burns fats beside your belly and below your arms. Burns almost 4 cal/min that makes 120 in 30 minutes.

10. Don't eat with a large group. A study published in the Journal of Physiological Behavior showed that we tend to intake more when we eat with many people, it may be because we spend more time at the table. But eating with your significant other or your family, and using table time for talking in between chewing, can help cut down weight gain by reducing calories intake.

I hope these small but effective rules and diet plan may help you burn fat,control diet and thus lose weight. Do let me know if you have some good ideas on this weight loss thing. Thanks..=]
