Fastest Ways To Lose Weight
Monday, April 27, 2009

Don't start your morning without breakfast. It truly is the most important meal of the day, especially if you are trying to lose weight.
You should have a large breakfast, a medium size lunch and a small dinner.

"Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper." Adelle Davis (1904-1974)

When eating later, eat lighter.

Eat cereal every day. Special K claims "Lose up to 6 pounds in 2 weeks!" I believe any cereal will help aid in weight loss. One bowl of cereal has less then 200 calories.

Make a list of healthy foods that you absolutely love to eat (including fruits and vegetables). The longer the list, the better. Try to eat the majority of your meals from that list.

Always keep the refrigerator stocked with healthy food, so you'll be less tempted to dine out.

Eat before you are hungry. If you eat when you are hungry or starved, you are likely to overeat.

Eat slowly. Take 30 seconds in between bites. It takes 20 minutes for your brain to acknowledge your stomach is full.

Fix the smallest plate you think you can eat. Don't sit in front of the TV with a whole bag of potato chips. Portion them out first. Be careful when dining out. Fast food restaurants almost always give you too much food. Don't be afraid to throw food away.

Eat often. You will raise your metabolism if you eat 5-6 time per day. However, these meals must be perfectly portioned meals.

Eat fiber. Fiber expands in your stomach and will help curb you appetite.

Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water daily.

Don't eat when you are stressed or bored.

Smells can trigger your appetite. Stay away from the smell of good food when you're not hungry.

Cut back. Don't cut out.

Don't starve yourself because your body will start storing all the fat it can. You will actually gain more weight.

Don't give up if you screw up and cheat on your diet. Regroup and begin again. If you feel that guilty make yourself run 3 miles as a punishment.

Don't give up if your weight plateaus or increases. It doesn't necessarily mean your diet isn't working. Weigh yourself once per week. Muscle weighs more then fat. The bathroom scale may indicate weight gain due to muscle gain. Use calipers (to measure fat) in addition to a weighing scale to determine your progress.

Take before and after pictures to track progress.

Diet and Exercise. They go hand in hand. You cannot have one without the other. Any diet that says you can is guaranteed to fail or have unhealthy repercussions.

I was listening to the radio the other day and the DJ was talking about a college study. I don't remember which college. The study found that a brisk walk for no less than an hour a day will help to lose weight. You don't even have to change your current diet.

Workout three or four times per week for at least one hour. A muscular body has a higher metabolism.

You will fail if you don't enjoy your current diet plan and exercise routine. Take up a sport like tennis or volleyball. Don't make yourself eat broccoli if you don't care for it.

Ask yourself questions like these and write down at least 10 answers:

What healthy foods do I love to eat?
How can I make diet and exercise easier and more fun?

Food Substitutes:

Italian bread is healthier for you then white bread (and tastes better too).
"I can't believe it's not butter" spray has zero calories and tastes exactly like butter.

Park at the farthest end of the parking lot when shopping and walk to the entrance.
Use the stairs instead of the elevator.
