Even though it often takes us years to gain weight, once we decide to lose it, we want to do so fast. The question is if it is possible to lose weight fast without some crazy diet that is risky for our health. Here are some strategies to lose weight quick and remain healthy.
Don’t Starve Yourself
It might seem reasonable that you can temporarily starve yourself to get immediate weight loss results. But this does more harm than good. Starving yourself now will make it more difficult to lose weight in the future and make it easier to experience weight gain.
Instead of starving yourself, use juicing as a strategy to greatly reduce calories while tricking your body into thinking you are not eating less. When we reduce our meals and calories it often triggers our bodies into thinking we are starving and it then makes changes to help us survive. These survival mechanisms are bad for weight loss.
Instead of skipping meals, juice. Drinking a big glass of green juice is super low in calories and super high in nutrition. Drinking the juice will help you feel full and send a signal to the brain you have eaten. The body will be able to easily assimilate the nutrition in the juice and so it will feel it has been fed and the juice will help in maintaining energy levels.
Don’t Go On A Crazy Exercise Program
Exercise is good for health and weight maintenance, but unhealthy levels of exercise only increase the likelihood of you becoming injured. Once injured you will be restricted to doing very little activity while you heal. That can lead to weight gain.
30 to 90 minutes of exercise a few times a week is a good strategy for weight loss and weight management. Doing any more than that is usually dangerous.
Daily Strategies To Lose Weight Quick
Morning is the time of day to get your body in tune for weight loss. Drink a big glass of cold water immediately upon waking up. Doing this will lower your body temperature just a little. But that small decrease in body temperature is enough to trigger your metabolism into turning on to raise your temperature back to normal. This is a key element to your strategy.
Don’t skip meals. Of all the strategies this is among the most important. Most dieters reduce the number of meals they eat to lose weight. This is a mistake. Increase your meals to 5 or 6 a day. They will be smaller, but key to taking off the pounds. By eating more often, you don’t ever get too hungry and your body always has food it can immediately use for energy.
Combine solid foods with juicing to provide a full day’s nutrition while keeping calories low. Following a daily meal plan of green juice for breakfast, a piece of whole fruit for a snack, then a glass of green juice along with some lean protein for lunch, an afternoon fruit snack and a well-rounded meal for dinner complete your strategy to lose weight fast and stay healthy. Follow these strategies to lose weight quickly and still remain healthy.
