We all find weight loss to be a far away destination. We hardly realize while piling on weight but while trying to shed it, each fraction of an inch begins to matter. This is perhaps why we get so impatient while trying to lose pounds. Hence, fast weight loss is something we all are after.
Rapid weight loss basically means you either want to lose some flab within a short period of time or wish to lose much flab much faster. Rapid weight loss is attainable through a combination of food portion control, light eating, food swapping, certain lifestyle changes and, of course, exercise. It is basically discipline and determination that help you lose flab. Without these two, attaining fat loss is almost impossible.
Following are the chief factors that determine your weight loss:
Avoid all refined carbohydrates like white bread, white rice, spaghetti, pasta, sandwich rolls etc. These are simple carbs that can wreak havoc on your slimming plans. The reason is that simple carbs get digested easily, making you feel hungry again. Moreover, it also causes a lot of bloating. You should, instead, incorporate whole or unrefined carbohydrates like brown bread, brown rice, whole wheat pasta etc. If you need super fast weight loss, have vegetables and no carbs for a week. The complex carbohydrates in the vegetables take longer to digest, thus keeping hunger away and providing you with essential vitamins and minerals. Vegetables also contain a lot of water which keeps your system clean.
You can snack on fruits and have healthy fats like nuts and oily fishes. Lean protein like chicken, tofu and fishes should also be included.
The basic plan should be to eat a healthy and balanced diet and keep ¼ of your stomach empty at meals.
Finally, have water instead of juices or energy drinks and no alcohol at all. You should also have green tea, black tea and coffee without sugar or have the latter with low-fat milk and no cream.
You cannot achieve the desired body without exercise. The calculation is simple. You need to create a balance between the number of calories you consume and the number of the same you spend. For losing flab, you need to create a calorie deficit. So, you need to consume lesser number of calories and burn greater number of the same. Suppose you consume 250 lesser calories and burn 250 calories through exercise; you then create a deficit of 500 calories a day, which adds up to 3500 calories a week.
If you wish to have fast weight loss, cardiovascular exercises are indispensable. Cardio exercises are those that speed up your heart rate like swimming, sprinting, walking, jogging, dancing, aerobics etc. And it is this very exercise, and not crunches, that reduce your belly fat. Along with it, you can combine some body weight exercises like squats, lunges, push ups, chin ups, tricep dips, crunches, planks, mountain climber, burpees, Russian twists etc. Stretching should also be incorporated.
Try to treat a healthy diet and exercise as a way of life rather than a short term plan, weight loss will soon follow.
