Losing weight fast is not that easy! You have decided to lose those extra pounds but you are not sure how to accomplish this. Bikini season is coming and you are not going to be embarrassed at the pool or beach this year!
So, Set Your Goal and post it on your refrigerator along with a picture of the beach or vacation location where you will look fabulous—soon!
Make a plan and stick to it!
Simple math will help you reach your goal. Multiply your current weight by 12.
Subtract 1000 per day to lose 2 pounds per week, 500 to lose 1 pound per week.
You want to make sure that you meet basic nutrient needs, so make sure you are consuming at least 1200 calories per day.
Write down what you will eat each day of the week---then when you grocery shop you are not tempted to buy the "extras". Have small meals throughout the day that are 100-200 calories each then one meal a day with lean protein and vegetables totaling 500 calories.
If you feel like nibbling, make sure that you have low-cal snacks on hand like 100 calorie microwave popcorn or an apple to satisfy you.
Drink water, unsweetened green tea, and black coffee. Cut out those calories that your consume in your daily latte, “energy drink”, and alcohol.
Those empty calories add up quickly, and you don’t waste even a few calories on drink.
In order to lose weight quickly, you will need to get your heart rate
up at least 3 hours a week. Running, jogging, cycling, or using an
elliptical trainer are some ways to increase your cardio. Remember that three hours per week does not mean all at once! Split this up into increments of 20 to 40 minute workouts for the best results!
If you have not exercised in a while be sure to consult your physician before your start any exercise program.
The last and most important tip in your quest of losing weight fast is to keep track of what you eat and drink with a journal. Keeping track of every sip and every bite will help you keep the calories to a minimum. Keeping a log of your exercise will keep you motivated to stick with it!
