Lose Weight Fast

There are really only 3 basic principles you need to know to lose weight. You can lose weight easily and consistently, week after week by following these 3 basic principles.

3 Principles of Fat Burning Foods

  1. You have to know the exact foods that cause accelerated fat burning in your body.
  2. You have to know the particular foods that are preventing fat burning and many of these are touted as healthy.
  3. You have to know how to combine foods to get the full FAT BURNING EFFECT.


Not just cookies, cakes and candy, but also many foods that are disguised as healthy foods, quickly change to sugar in your body. Foods like orange juice, whole wheat bread, healthy cereals, things designated as low fat, like muffins and salad dressings, the list goes on and on. These are the things that are actually causing you to gain, or at least not lose weight. When these foods hit your system, they turn to sugar. These are the foods that are preventing you from losing fat.

Anyone who is trying to rid stubborn fat off their body needs to regulate their blood sugar. If your blood sugar’s high for a consistent period of time, your body has no choice but to release the hormone called insulin. Insulin signals your body to store fat and that’s exactly what you don’t want. But having high blood sugar for an extended period of time is very dangerous for your body. So, insulin comes in to protect you, but it also makes you store lots of fat. There’s even more bad news. When insulin is released it takes your blood sugar from a high to an extreme low. When your blood sugar is low, you become hungry, you have cravings and you become extremely fatigued.

We all need some insulin in our blood streams, but many people are releasing way too much and that’s why it’s nearly impossible for them to lose any weight. You need to learn how to recognize what foods you can eat to avoid this insulin roller coaster.

Many people associate carbohydrates with sugar, but what you need to know is that not all carbohydrates are created equal and the ones you’re eating, thinking they’re healthy, may be doing you more harm than good. You need carbs to make your body function properly, but there are certain carbs that you absolutely do not need. For example, many people believe the whole wheat bread they’re eating is good for them; definitely not. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. Whole wheat bread will create an increase in blood sugar and insulin just as much as most other breads. This also happens with most pastas, even whole wheat ones. Almost all cereals, crackers, even the ones with all kinds of healthy claims. All of them will put you in that fat storing state.

So, which carbs should you eat? If you enjoy bread, there are still a lot of breads you can have. There are breads made from sprouted grains, or from grains like rice and spelt. Other grains to try would be millet and quinoa. Sweet potato with a little butter and cinnamon and most fruits and vegetables all fall into this category of good carbs. In fact, the good fiber, vitamins, minerals and nutrients in most fruits and vegetables will actually help you burn fat faster.

Good Fats vs. Bad Fats

  • It’s impossible to LOSE fat without eating fat
  • Fat does NOT make you Fat
  • Eat Good Fat = Burn Body Fat
  • Eat Bad Fat = Store Body Fat

The principles of fat burning foods also applies to the fats you eat as well. Eating the right kind of fat will help you lose fat! When you give your body the right kind of fat it actually increases the metabolic process to burn off your unwanted fat. Eat the right kind of fat and you will burn fat. Eat the wrong kind of fat and you’ll store fat.

Fats that will cause you to GAIN fat:

  • Hydrogenated Oils
  • Canola Oil
  • Vegetable Oils
  • Margarine
  • Substitute Butters

Fats you MUST eat to LOSE fat:

  • Real Butter
  • Whole Eggs
  • Coconut Oil
  • Olive Oil
  • Avocados
  • Raw Nuts

Processed Foods are Enemy #2

Most processed foods contain an incredible amount of sugar. They also contain a lot of chemicals and artificial ingredients that make it almost impossible for your body to burn off fat. It all comes down to how effectively your liver is functioning. You liver has many functions, the two we want to focus on here are the break down of fats and the filtering of harmful substances from the blood. Since it is your liver’s job to break down fat, you want it working at full force. But when your liver is trying it’s hardest to filter out all the harmful substances that are coming in from all those processed foods it has no time or energy for fat breakdown. The easiest solution to make sure that your liver has all the time it needs to breakdown fat is to stop feeding it harmful substances to work on.

So, what are some of those harmful substances? Things like artificial sweeteners, high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils and even processed soy products. It’s the foods that contain these products that are overwhelming your liver and you have to stop eating them. Even if you think you aren’t eating many of these chemicals, they are, unfortunately, in many foods we think are good for us. Give your liver a chance to get into fat burning mode by reducing or eliminating processed foods.

Stick with foods that contain only one ingredient like steak, chicken, fish, eggs, fruits, vegetables, olive oil, coconut oil, butter, rice, sweat potatoes, and hundreds of other ingredients can all be combined to create wonderful, healthy meals.


  • You don’t need to count calories
  • The Number of calories DOES NOT MATTER
  • Most people are not eating ENOUGH calories

It’s not the number of calories that matters it’s the quality of food you’re eating and the metabolic enhancing effect on your body that matters. Most people are actually focused on the wrong thing. Just eliminate the bad stuff, the processed foods, and focus on eating the good, healthy foods. You do have to be somewhat reasonable in the amount you eat, but it’s surprisingly a lot more calories than you probably think.

When you go on a diet and severely restrict calories it actually does more harm than good. Your body will hold on to all the bad fat in an effort to protect itself. Calorie restriction may lead your body into starvation mode. That’s when your body thinks you’re dying of starvation and it protects you by holding on to every last bit of fat and every last calorie you have in your body.

Metabolic Typing

Finding your metabolic type will tell you which foods are the best for you to create an ideal fat burning environment in your body. You can use an online questionnaire to help you determine which metabolic type you are. This will help you choose the foods you need to optimize your fat burning.

    Hi angel, you really do need a little good fat in your diet. You can't eliminate it completely, your body needs it. It's always great to see you stop in! Thanks for commenting.

    very very true...but sorta hard.... its easy yes, but ingrained guilt when ever I touch fat...yikes!!! I know its a must, I see the damaging effects of low calorie/good fat in my week hair, etc... obviously eating strictly has caused nutritional deficiencies in me... and the liver thing is great! I need to focus on that definitely...

    Hi StevoMc, switching to "good" fats is an excellent idea. the main thing is to stay away from processed foods and refined sugar products. Good luck with your healthy eating, it can sometimes be a struggle. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    Intriguing information. I am always looking for ways to make my diet better for me. I also took the questionnaire and found out that I am a protein type. Now what do I do? High protein high fat diet would be wrong for me. High protein low fat would be better. So confused. LOL

    Maybe adding some of the good type fats.

    Hi, thought I would come over and take a look, and thank goodness I did! I have put on half a stone over the last few weeks and couldn't quite put my finger on why! now I know!! I am going to bookmark this and everytime I want to stuff myself with the wrong food, I will check this out first. I have a habit of chewing gum, and it is the old type where it is very sweet. I don't think that helps! lol thanks nell

    Thanks. I learnt a lot from this Hub - particularly fats we need to have to get rid of fat. That was interesting.

    I wonder where you are from Lamme. There is no hint at all from your profile. US, UK?

    Best Wishes.

    @magnoliazz, that's just it. There's more to it than just the calorie consumption. Have you ever seen heavy people who actually eat less than their thinner friends? I realize that sometimes these people may be closet eaters ... not eating in public what they would consume in private, but that's not always the case.

    When you state that most people are not eating that many calories, but they are still overweight, that does make sense.

    Do you ever see these overweight people that are bed ridden? Let's face it, most of these people do not have that much money, so how can they be eating that much? Also, what caregiver is going to over feed these people? I mean come on, they would have to be cooking around the clock.

    Good information in this hub! I never came across metabolic typing, but it makes a lot of sense, I am going to take the questioneer.

    You are so right about cereals. I started eating Cheerios for breakfast and gained 15 pounds in 2 months! I stopped eating Cherrios and the weight came off again.

    I'm bookmarking this hub too.


    Sugar is a BIG problem!

    This is one of my most favorite types of articles. I agree with what you said about most people not eating enough calories, because I don't, and needless to say I don't lose too quickly. I like the points that you made about needing good fats. Actually there are so many good points in this hub that I'll just have to bookmark it to reread later. Very, very good, I'll be back for more.

    Yes kea, it's so hard to try and keep all the processed foods and chemicals out of our diets. It seems all the junk foods are the cheapest and most readily available. Thanks for stopping by.

    Great information! I agree and try to avoid processed foods and sugar...these things, in addition to all the chemicals added to plants and animals, are the main problems with diet! Cheers.
