Okay. Okay. You need to lose weight fast. So what are you going to do about it? Shedding those extra pounds quickly is possible, but you have to know the rules. And follow them.
To get the best results from your commitment, there are some pretty basic guidelines to follow that will give you the maximum return on your effort.
While these may be thought of as “common knowledge” in the weight loss community, it seems they are also some of the first ideas that go out the window when you are frantically trying to lose weight. So, stick with them and you will find success!
Of all the foods to eat while on a fat loss diet, foods with high protein are the most important. Protein will keep your hunger at bay. Protein will stabilize blood glucose to keep you energetic. Protein helps to prevent the loss of lean muscle. All of these combined will boost your metabolism and speed up fat loss.
Keep on top of your protein intake. Make sure you include protein rich food in your snacks and with every meal.
Some great sources of protein are:
Hard Boiled Egg
Stick to a single serving and you will find that you are not hungry and your energy will shoot up fast!
Eat More Often
Your metabolism must increase in order to lose weight. And when you want to lose weight fast, it has to go up fast. The best way to increase your metabolism is to eat more often. Fuel that fire!
This may seem a little odd because it was probably eating too much that put on the weight in the first place. But it was from not eating the right foods. When you eat more small meals per day, you won’t get the crashes in your energy level.
Eating more will also prevent the dreaded “Snacking” of high carb, easy to grab snacks that seem to always be available. Stay ahead of your hunger and low energy times by planning quick, high protein snacks.
Fresh Foods Come First
Processed foods are not your friend. When ever possible, eat fresh foods. These can easily trip up your weight loss efforts without you even realizing it.
Packed with preservatives that counteract the good stuff, you may be putting up roadblocks to your body burning the fat. And the last thing you really need right now is more roadblocks, right?
Simply eliminating processed food can give your diet the boost it needs to push you over your goal. Try to keep fresh fruits and veggies around. Eat breads with whole grains and cook with healthy fats and oils.
For meats, stick with lean, natural meats such as grass feed beef, free range chicken and fresh fish like salmon.
If you only make on change to your diet, this should be it. The importance of fresh foods cannot be overstated.
The good news is that fresh foods are becoming more common place. Farmers markets are more popular than ever. Check the local events to see when you can find your communities farmers market or see if there is a community garden that you can participate in.
Most main stream grocery stores are also stepping up and including more fresh products. They are in demand and available.
Set Short Term Goals
Think of setting short term goals as your personal motivational tool. When you are able to achieve a goal, you feel good about yourself. When you feel good about yourself, you want to feel even better. Thus, on to the next short term goal. It is kind of like an avalanche of success.
Setting goals too far out makes it easy for them to go by the wayside. But when goals are always right around the corner, you will be more likely to stick with them.
Build your goals in two-week segments. Two weeks is long enough to form good habits, and is the perfect amount of time to build behaviors that you will stick to.
This is precisely why The 2 Week Diet is so effective. It helps keep you motivated and engaged until making good choices becomes automatic.
Avoid Soul Killing Comparisons
Stop comparing your progress to others. This is your journey, not anyone else. You’re unique and your success is not going to always be in line with everyone else.
If you want to compare your body to something, compare it to your own body, 2 weeks ago. Celebrate your achievements and use them as motivation to keep going. Any improvement is success! Keep Going!
