There are many different ways you can lose weight fast but I have found with most of these “fast weight loss“ products is that they are very effective for quick weight loss but for long term weight loss they are not. The problem is they never seem to last a long time and as quick as you lose the weight, is as quick as it seems to come back. So they had two of the traits I was looking, they worked fast and for the most part they were effective. But the most important 2 it did not address, safety and long term effectiveness.
The more I learned and researched about these diet fads, the more bad things I heard about them. Sure they worked really quickly but at what costs? I heard about too many stories of unhealthy things happening to people who believed the diets caused the problems. We will never know how much or if the diet they used caused the problem but it gives you something to be concerned about when you start seeing such reviews about something you are thinking of taking.
Then there’s the long term effectiveness. Like most people who have had weight issues their whole life, the biggest problem was finding the right program or product that will help keep the weight off, safety. And all of the lose weight fast stuff I tried never did that. The only thing that ever seemed to last was a basic diet program or product, that gradually helped you lose weight with a combination of eating the right foods and exercise.
That takes will power and dedication but it definitely works. The problem is we want things quick and now and it’s too easy to stray from a system that controls what you eat. It’s also difficult for a lot of people’s to stay motivated enough to keep up with the exercise program need to help lose the weight. Our busy schedules, lack of time management, family and job all contribute to buying a quick already done meal on the way home or finding it hard to get that time you needed this week to go to the gym.
So the question was, “How can I lose weight fast, safely, effectively and long term”? I don’t think there is a correct answer to that question. Either you want to lose weight fast for a short period, with who knows what kind of side effects to your body and health or you do it the old fashion way with the right diet and exercise and the dedication to stick to it.
I think this is the reason there’s a new diet program or product coming out every week. Because people have a hard time with eating the right stuff all the time and sticking to a regiment of exercise, so they’re always looking for an easy way to lose weight. So they buy anything to make it easier to try to lose the weight only to find out that it’s only a quick fix and doesn’t last.
There are a few things you can do to make it a little easier to make a long term diet or weight loss program easier. First, the exercise part. Start out small and build your way up to where you ant to be. Most people want to do everything right out of the gate and this usually contributes toy them failing. It’s not easy to just jump in from not doing exercise to a 30 minute workout. Do it at your own pace and add a little when you’re ready. The only bad effect this will have is that it may take a little longer to get to your weight loss goal but it will make easier to get there.
Try to replace any sugary drinks with water. Thee sugary drinks turn into fat quickly so soda is not good but a flavored water or just plain water is better. It might be difficult to replace that soda you have with your lunch every day so try to think of it as the exercise you will need to do. If you’re favorite thing is not exercising, why drink sugary stuff that will require more exercise to get rid of the fat it created.
You may also want to have small portions of something you really enjoy every so often, I don’t mean sit down and eat 2 pizzas but a slice once in a while won’t kill you and it will help with the going cold turkey to just eating healthy foods. After you get to a certain point you may eliminate it all together.
