Is it true? Are there really easy ways to lose weight fast? Well, I guess that really depends on two main things: how much weight do you need to lose and what do you consider “fast”?
If you only need to lost a few pounds, say 2 up to 10, than you can probably drop that weight pretty quickly and easily. If, on the other hand, you need to lose 15 or more pounds and you want to do it in a week or two, you may not have realistic expectations.
There are some easy ways to lose weight fast, but most of them will only involve losing some water weight and will only result in losing a few pounds. The water weight will usually come right back as soon as you starting eating normally again.
The fast methods don’t usually include actually losing excess body fat. Losing the excess body fat, as opposed to only losing water weight, is the only real way to lose weight and have it stay off (at least as long as you don’t just go back to your old habits of eating).
Many of these fast weight loss plans will revolve around some sort of liquid fasting or cleansing. There are many variations but the general theory is the same:
1. You will greatly reduce, or eliminate completely, eating solid foods for several days.
2. During that time you will ingest only liquid shakes or some sort of cleanse mixture. There are many recipes online that you can try. The idea is to provide your body with the nutrients it needs and/ or help you flush toxins out of your body.
For the most part, these types of weight loss plans are good for getting off to a quick start but if you need to lose more than 10 – 15 pounds, it’s unlikely that you will get the results you want from just this method.
I don’t mean to be the bearer of bad news but any significant weight loss is going to take some time and it is going to be the result of a combination of watching what you eat as well as some sort of physical activity.
Pills, potions and gadgets will only get you so far, from that point on you will need to get more exercise and eat less (also eat better).
But, having said that, don’t make the mistake of thinking that to lose weight you need to go hardcore. Some simple lifestyle changes can make a big difference. The most important thing to remember is that unless you want to gain the weight back right away, you have to make permanent lifestyle changes.
Just going on a “diet” will only allow you to lose weight, but if you don’t make permanent changes you will just gain it all back sooner or later.
There may not really be such a thing as easy ways to lose weight fast if you have a lot of weight to lose. But there are some simple things you can do to make changes to your life that will result (maybe not in quick) but permanent weight loss.
