Losing weight doesn’t have to take forever, here’s the 8 simple steps that will create the fastest weight loss diet.
1 – Creating YOUR fastest weight loss diet is easy if you approach it on a one step at a time basis.
You can’t make improvements in what you don’t monitor. That is an axiom in business and is one in our weight loss efforts as well. If you don’t know what and how much you are eating, how can you make the appropriate changes? Start a simple food diary and list everything you eat for a few days, that will give you all the data you need to start making changes.
Then, start making changes! Start slowly adding in more healthy food options and start easing back on the bad ones.
Next in our quest for the fastest weight loss diet is exercise. Stop groaning, I don’t like it either, but you have to do it. Start off (one day at a time) easy. Maybe 10 – 15 minutes of low intensity walking. Than as you get in better shape, increase the intensity and duration. Start adding in other exercises and so on…
2 – Your fastest weight loss diet will be successful or not based on one thing. Whether you stick to it or not! It’s far easier if you enjoy what you are doing, so pick foods and Biofit exercise activities that you like.
The glycemic index charts list foods by a ranking number and (usually) lower is better. There are tons of options, so trade out bad foods with ones that rank lower but you still like to eat! Even if it’s only a couple points difference, you are making progress.
The same ideas apply to exercise. Bored with mind numbing crunches and jogging? Try wildly dancing around the house! Wilder is better! Get your kids involved. You’ll feel like an idiot and laugh the whole time. Tennis anyone?
3 – In addition to aerobic type exercise, to really boost your fastest weight loss diet into overdrive, start to build and tone your muscles.
To lose weight, we want to burn off more calories than we take in…pound for pound, muscle burns more calories than fat! Plus, you get a nice added bonus – muscle burns calories even when not being used. You could lose weight while sleeping or watching TV! Add some weight training into your daily routine and you will really speed up your metabolism. You’ll look and feel better and it will be easier to stay that way.
4 – Your body needs carbohydrates in the mix. Don’t cut them out completely, but scale back. Your body digests carbs and turns them into glucose which is the blood sugar you hear so much about. In your fastest weight loss diet plan, you need enough carbs to keep up your energy and body functions without having “left-overs’ that get stored as fat. Try substituting foods that rank lower on the glycemic foods index.
5 – One of the biggest causes of failure in the fastest weight loss diet is our goal setting. we either don’t set a goal (disaster ahead!) or we set unrealistic goals we can never attain or stick with. Either way destroys your chances. Set both short and long term – measurable – goals, set deadlines and hold yourself accountable.
In making lifestyle changes, it’s not a contest. The size of the goal is far less important than the ability to stick with it. After all, it’s better to comfortably lose a pound a week for a year, than it is to starve yourself and lose ten pounds in a week, then give up and regain it all, plus 15 more pounds to boot!
6 – It goes well beyond the scope of this article to explain why, but candy, sodas, cookies and other “empty calorie” foods are bad for you. I mean really bad and not just because they make you fat. If you want better health and success in your fastest weight loss diet, cut them out.
The bonus here is that by cutting out all these fat inducing empty calories, most of us will start to see dramatic weight loss without doing anything more!
7 – To lose weight on the fastest weight loss diet, you have to eat. Not only that, you must have a good breakfast. It’s this that will trigger your metabolism and speed it up throughout the day. Go without and your metabolism slows way down and when you finally DO eat, your body thinks it has been in starvation and will still keep your metabolism at the low point. It stores the food as fat rather than using it as energy.
