Many people complicate their weight loss plan. It does not have to be that way! Today I will share with you 8 secrets to quick start your weight loss plan.
Remember doing anything temporally will only give you temporary results! The idea of a diet plan is to stick with it for as long as it takes to archive your weight loss goal.
There is absolutely no need to buy any sort of diet pills. These pills do work but they also cause numerous long term side effects. We will focus on natural and effective ways to burn fat fast.
Below are the 8 secrets to quick start off your weight loss plan:
#1 Make Gradual Changes in Your Diet
Most people think that changing diet has to be very extreme. They switch from their typical junk food diet to extreme low calorie diet with nothing but fruits and veggies. In my opinion you should switch gradually. Start cutting some portions of your current diet and spread the whole system in 4 weeks. This way your body will get enough time to adopt the new changes. Just like taking medical drugs.
#2 Stop Stressing Out About Your Weight
Many people feel very stressed when they start a new diet plan. Stop doing that! Whenever your body stress levels soar the body starts to produce fat building hormones (there is an association between stress and hunger). Meaning whenever you are stressed you are more likely to eat fatty foods. Therefore focus on your daily routine life and stop stressing about weight loss plan.
#3 Eat at Least 1200 Calories a Day
If you think eating less will help you to lose weight you are absolutely wrong! Your body needs energy and the bare minimum is 1200 calories a day. Eating less than this amount will not result in weight loss but instead harm your body functions. The body metabolism is what drives it to lose weight and you need energy to quick start the body metabolic rate. Therefore please make sure that you eat sufficient calories while dieting.
#4 Do Not Skip Meals (specially breakfast)
Ideally you should spread your 3 day meals in you 5 small portioned meals, this way you will feel less hungry and still lose weight. And remember to never ever skip breakfast! This is the most important meal of the day, it starts off the body metabolism and skipping it will only slow down your weight loss plan.
#5 Keep a Journal
Studies show that people who keep a food journal are more likely to lose weight faster. You can find many free downloadable journals online just do a Google search.
#6 Drink Plenty of Water
Ideally you should drink at least 2/3 litres of water a day. But in my opinion you should drink 5 litres of water a day when you are on a diet. Drinking this much water a day will not only fill up your stomach but also refresh you during the day. Sure frequent urination will occur as a side effect but this is a small price to pay when you see the end results.
#7 Do Regular Exercise
This is the most scary and frequently avoided task especially for obese people but it does not have to be that way. Doing regular exercise simply means to burn 500 calories and you can do that by simply walking 10000 steps a day! I have wrote an article about this, you can read it here it is titled – Walk 10000 Steps a Day and burn 661 Calories.
#8 Stop Weighting Everyday
I know when you are in a course to lose weight you want to weight every day but weighting everyday will not result in weight loss. It takes time and when you are weighting yourself every day you will get frustrated and this can lead to an increase of stress hormones. And we have covered earlier what happens when you are stressed. So stop weighting every day, do it once a week or twice a month.
That is it! As you can see it is not complicated. Just make sure that you stick with it till you archive your weight loss goal.
