Fast Way to Lose Weight

Updated on September 8, 2011

Are you seeking the fastest way to lose weight?

If weight gain happens gradually, many of us don't notice we are putting on excess pounds and the first indication may be when you become aware that certain clothes have become too tight. This is particularly shocking when you are preparing for an important event, and you may find yourself in need of a fast way to lose weight, that is also easy to follow and time sensitive.


This page discusses some of the best methods you can implement straightaway to begin to lose weight quickly.

Water

This is something you are possible bored of hearing, but just about every diet plan I have read, rated this as crucial. All dietitians recommend that you drink at least 64 oz. or around eight glasses of water per day. Drinking plenty of water will relieve water retention; if you don't drink enough water, the body retains every ounce it has, as it feels there is some sort of shortage. As soon as you begin drinking adequate amounts, it lets go of the stores it has been hanging on to, as it is confident it will be receiving more.

Additionally, a 2003 study published by the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, revealed that a person who drinks adequate levels of water will burn around 95 calories a day more than those who drink too little.

Drinking a glass several minutes before eating can help to lessen appetite and induce a feeling of fullness, which also supports quick weight loss.

Portions

A fast way to lose weight is by reducing portion size. Before food even reaches the mouth, the eating experience has already begun when the food is observed on the plate. Seeing an attractively-arranged meal can induce more anticipation to begin eating, than looking at food that has been slopped haphazardly onto a plate.

In comparison to the portions that were traditionally served 30 to 40 years ago, a regular serving size these days is huge. By serving your food on a smaller plate you can trick your brain into believing the amount of food you are eating is the same as your customary serving, when even if it were 30 percent less, it would probably still be more than adequate.

Fiber

Another fast way to lose weight, is by eating foods high in fiber such as fresh fruit, vegetables, and whole grain breads. High-fiber foods will not only help maintain regular bowel movements, they will also keep you feeling full for longer periods, according to the MayoClinic.com.

Daily recommendations are between 25 and 35 g per day, and the more fiber you eat, the faster you will lose weight. Try to eat a least six portions of raw fruits or vegetables daily.

Fats

When on a weight loss diet, many people try to curb their fat intake because they think it is one of the best ways to lose weight. This is a mistake and a bad way to achieve a weight loss goal according to Liz Vaccariello, author of "400 Calorie Fix" and the "Flat Belly Diet."

Whilst partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, or trans fats, are incredibly bad for weight loss, and indeed health in general, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats have been proven to be a fast way to reduce belly fat when eaten in small portions with each meal.

Excellent sources are avocados, almonds, olives and flax seed. By adding a small amount of these essential fatty acids to most meals can help induce fast weight loss.

Weight Loss Program

A fast way to lose weight that is also an extremely healthy weight loss system is explained by Isobel de Rios in her "Diet Solution" program.
