The fastest and safest way to lose weight
Diet & Health
Losing weight can be a daunting task to most people. Those who need to lose weight try all the fads & new diets to lose weight, only to gain it back soon afterword. The reason for that is simple- A radical change in someones diet that they have followed for many years is very difficult-sometimes impossible-to follow for any length of time. Nor is any other change in life style, including diet and exercise easy to implement, or even wise in some cases..
So how does one go about this the logical way and get results? First, look at the foods you normally eat.
High fat?High sugar? High carbohydrate? Candy? Ice cream? Cake, donuts, etc...are they a staple of your diet?
If they are, you need to realize that while being unhealthy for a consistent, nutritional food source, these products are still able to be enjoyed- only with some moderation, not out of control eating.
So lets take the bull by the horns. How do we lose weight safely and quickly?
First, start by realizing that you need to eat healthy food and get at least a modicum of exercise ever day. The food should be low fat and low in sugar to be healthy for your body, and not too high in carbohydrates.
Here is a pretty easy to follow diet that may work for you, is a healthy diet and should keep you from getting hungry and help you start losing weight fast.
So try this from Monday through Friday-
(The idea here is to not have enough time between meals to develop any real hunger, so you MUST eat often- but with healthy, low fat foods )
At breakfast have two eggs, maybe a small slice of lowfat turkey sausage or turkey bacon, a slice of thin protein bread toast with a healthy spread like Smart Balance or similar low fat healthy type butter substitute, and a small glass of juice. Tea or black coffee is fine- no sugar though-no sweetened creamers- use sucrose to sweeten and skim milk for creamer.
About 3 hours later have a low calorie snack- a small handful of almonds or sunflower seeds, or a small apple or pear.
2 hours later, lunch-a small garden salad with a vinaigrette or non-creamy Italian dressing with a small glass of milk, an apple or orange, 2 small slices of cold cuts on a thin slice of protein bread with 1 slice tomato, 1 slice low fat cheese and a light spread of non-fat mayonnaise
2 hours later- black coffee or tea with sugar substitute, a few (4 oz) of lowfat rice or soy chips.
Dinner- salad, add tomatoes, a just a few raisins, some sliced turkey, black olives, a dash of sunflower seeds or almond slices, some onion, a slice of apple, with a lowfat vinaigrette or Italian non creamy dressing.
A 1/4-1/3 pound of baked fish with butter substitute and any seasoning desired.
Drink water, as much as you need. There are no calories there at all.
Alternate fish every other day with lean hamburg, turkey/chicken hamburg or Turkey/chicken sausage-no roll or bread, with a slice of tomato & onion if you so desire.
1/3 cup ice cream for desert, or a 1/2 cup of grapes.
Eat nothing else after 6pm.
If you develop a craving after 6pm, a piece of fruit or a thin slice of low fat toast with JUST a dab-very small amount- of either smart balance or low fat peanut butter should help.
After dinner, try to walk for at least 15- 20 minutes. More when you can.
On the weekends-Saturday & Sunday ONLY- eat ANY FOOD you desire. Try not to binge but eat reasonable amounts- cake, pasta, hot dogs, etc. If you binge you will probably lose some of the gains you made, so be careful not to go overboard.
Be sure to walk at least 20 minutes each day on the weekends too.
Come Monday morning, go back on this diet and follow it for as long as you feel like it.
I have a friend who lost over 100lbs and kept it off using a slightly stricter version of this diet.
This is the easier diet to follow, but his diet eliminated everything but the salads.
This should make you lose weight and not be hungry. Try it, you have nothing to lose- but weight.
