How to Lose Weight Quickly and Safely
If you want to lose weight quickly, it is time to give up the fad diets and struggle. You have to start eating healthy and delicious food if you want long term weight loss. This is not a gimmick, this is just the way it is. If you want to lose weight fast and safely, then there are certain things that you have to do, and all of them require that you develop some healthier habits around nutrition.
Eat Healthier Foods That Are Nutrient Dense
The bad news is that there are a lot of yummy foods that are not helping you lose weight because they contain unhealthy fats, too many calories, and interact with your body in a negative way. The good news is that there are a lot of cookbooks and programs (like The Fastest Fat Loss Week EVER program) out there that can show you how to create yummy foods that will help you lose weight, burn fat, and stay satisfied.
Healthy foods can taste good. And, once you start habitually eating them, you will start to crave them because they are so satisfying.
In addition, when foods are nutrient dense, they give your body the nutrients it needs to function at optimal levels. This means all your bodily functions and all your hormones will work in unison the way they should, and your body’s metabolic system will work optimally for weight loss.
Stay Satisfied Throughout Your Day
Too many diets leave you hungry throughout the day. Skipping meals that your body wants, creating too low of a calorie deficit, and eating foods that are not satisfying can all cause you to feel hungry more than not.
When you are eating tasteless food or too little food, you get hungry. When you are hungry, your body responds in a number of ways that are detrimental to your weight loss success. For instance, when your body is hungry, it holds on to fat because it is getting the message that food is scarce, and if it wants to survive it better keep fat around to use for energy in the coming days.
“So when our metabolism thinks we are starving, does it want to get rid of or hold on to body fat? It wants to hold on.” – Ben Greenfield Fitness
Create A Calorie Deficit
You need to create a calorie deficit in order to lose weight. In short, cutting out 3500 calories in a week can help you lose one pound. That is considered healthy for most people, but you can lose weight quicker.
For instance, if you are 37-year-old female who weighs 200 pounds and is 5’4″ tall, and you are moderately active, then you need to eat 2445 calories to maintain your weight, 1956 calories to lose weight, and 1467 calories to lose weight fast. Anything less could cause your body to react in a way that is resistant to weight loss.
It is also important to take into consideration your uniqueness. Some women may be able to eat more calories in their day and still lose weight fast, while some women will need to adjust their calories differently. By keeping track of calories in the beginning, you can quickly see how much weight you are losing and how many calories you will actually need to cut out to lose weight as quick as you want.
