20 ways to Lose Weight Faster

To achieve a weight loss that is quick and safe, you need to have a plan and a checklist to keep you motivated. The trip to losing weight can be a lonely one and filled with temptations. An effective way to start losing weight is to put your weight loss goals on a piece of paper, establish how much weight to lose, and over what period of time.

How quickly you want to lose weight is dependent on how much you put in your effort. Other than liposuction I cannot imagine any other way to reduce weight quickly.

Once you establish what your goals are, find ways to lose weight by watching what you eat and seek opportunities to get into physical activities. However be mindful that whatever you do to lose weight, you must maintain a balanced diet which is defined as foods that contain carbohydrate, protein, fat, vitamins, mineral salts and fibre that are consumed in the correct proportions.

Here are some suggestions that you can try and put in your weight loss plan:

1. Start with healthy slimming or green tea or other foods that have digestive enzymes and vitamins to cleanse the toxins from your body.
2. Examine your current eating habit and stop consuming those with negative effects on your weight loss plan.
3. Find a book of calories and learn what type of food that will help you lose weight. Sweat it out at sauna sessions or aerobics.
4. Invest in a trampoline and jump for 5 to 10 minutes a day.
5. Watch your consumption of foods that have alot of carbo, refined sugar and fat, resist temptations to snack on potato chips, chocolates and sodas. Cut down on red meat. Eat in moderation.
6. Downsize your dinner plate, the less food that is served to you, the less you will eat. The same goes for liquid with the exception of water.
7. Brisk walking daily for 30 to 45 minutes. By a pedometer and aim for 1,000 steps a day.
8. Find opportunities to burn calories by running up the stairs instead of the elevator or run errands for people or offer to
9. Eat slowly and calmly, if you eat slow enough your brain will eventually tell you that you are no longer hungry.
10. Do not allow yourself to skip meals and go hungry, this only makes you consume more in your next meal.
11. Drink lots of water, at least 8 glasses a day.
12. Do other form of exercises that you enjoy like badminton, tennis,swimming and do it regularly.
13. When doing your groceries, pick low-fat foods, like milk, cheese, cream, butter , yoghurt etc. 14. Snack on fruits, celery and carrots.
15. Eat more at home as you have better control over what and how much you eat.
16. Be mindful of your salad dressing, the type and how much.
17. People tend to over-eat when they are depressed or stressed, so be mindful to indulge in comfort-food when you feel down.
18. Place notes at strategic locations for eg on the fridge door that reminds you that you are trying to lose weight.
19. Increase metabolism by eating more frequently but in smaller amount.
20. Reward yourself after each weekly success. Indulge but don't pig-out.

A Little More About Me

Well I'm from Pittsburgh, PA home of the Steelers. I work as a Vault Manager at an Armored Truck company. I have a cat, and dog, love em both! Why I started my transformation and started this site? Because I was tired of being fat, unhealthy and out of shape. In high school I played football, baseball, I was in shape, healthy & confident. I stayed that way until I was 17. I became lazy, fat, unhealthy, anti-social, and I lost all my self-confidence. When i turned 22, I was driving past a gym that had a huge Banner that read 1 year membership $99, I went the next day to the no longer Kings Gym and handed them the money and I decided it was time to make some major changes. I decided that I was not going to continue to live my life feeling miserable and unhappy everytime i put on jeans or a shirt that i just cound't fit into anymore. I began to educate myself, by searching the internet and asking alot of questions at the gym. Well read up on my blog, i will always have new posts and pictures updated for you. Thanks alot for visiting and i hope i can help you!
