Most Effective Weight Loss Programs That Get Fast Results With The Least Amount Of Effort
Getting Beach Ready For 2019
Nearly everybody slightly overindulges at christmas, and really it is no wonder that we all succumb to the temptation.
With all the food and drink available and plenty of time to eat it, it is so easy to pack on the pounds during the festive season.
Then as the new year approaches and thoughts of our summer holidays enter our minds. Most people set out to lose a few pounds to look good for the summer.
The problem most people have to face though. It is so easy to put on weight yet it seems a lot more difficult to lose it.
Maybe a better strategy would be to make it your goal to eat healthy over christmas, but I guess the temptation is just too great and we all deserve a treat after a long hard year.
The weight loss strategies that you should avoid
For years now we all have been bombarded with the latest weight loss plan or which diet is the best way to lose weight.
This has lead most people to follow the usual standard advice, information and tactics or they stick with the same old ways, with little thought about creating a realistic and easily sustainable, weight loss plan of action.
The traditional weight loss approach. Usually revolve, around half starving yourself and following a vigorous exercise routine, which most people, don't really feel overly motivated, to do.
For many, they don't yield the results they want or they are just too difficult to maintain.
It can become very frustrating when you're doing everything that you can, to try and lose weight. But you're getting the same dismal results, over and over again.
There is a very good reason, why the usual starvation diets have a high failure rate, because who really wants to.
- Go without food or eat tiny portions, when they are feeling really hungry
- Force themselves to perform long gruelling exercises
- Eat, foods they don't really want to eat
- Endlessly counting calories
- Drastically change their lifestyles
Not everybody wants to embark on a painful, army boot camp type of strict routine and strategy. That is generally based on sheer will power, food derivation and enormous struggle.
It can also be hard to change a lifetime of eating habits, that you have become so used to.
Ideally, you want something that is easier to follow. A weight loss routine, which easily fits into your daily schedule, that doesn't involve a hard to follow diet and a gruelling exercise routine.
A strategy that is going to help you lose weight fast with the minimum amount of effort and disturbance to your normal daily routine and way of living.
Because, the normal weight loss strategies, tend to rely a lot on sheer motivation, hard work and an enormous amount of willpower.
The trouble is. How many people get motivated or remain motivated at the thought of doing something against their own will, that requires drastic measures.
Let's be honest. A weight loss program that is based on starvation tactics, hard effort and forcing yourself to follow a strict rigorous exercise routine?
Doesn't sound very appealing, much fun or self motivating.
Therefore, it is hardly surprising. The results for these starvation and food deprivation diets have a low success rate.
Because when your natural survival urge to eat kicks in, the compulsion to eat becomes too strong, at some point, you're going to weaken and give in.
To a large degree, many people are making their weight loss strategies a lot harder than they need to be, physically, emotionally and mentally.
Most dieters accept the fact that a change in dietary habits is necessary to lose weight and more importantly, keep the weight off.
They also understand and they are fully aware that exercise and healthy eating is considered to be the right way to lose weight.
Having a positive reason to lose weight like:
- Improving your health
- Being more mobile
- Looking and feeling great
- Feeling fitter and more confident
- Increase your chances of living longer
Can really, help you to feel more motivated and inspired
However, many people are bombarded with all the negative aspects of why you should lose weight.
But this can make people only do it because they have been made to feel bad, they have been nagged into doing it or they feel like they have to do it, instead of wanting to do it to for all the right positive reasons.
People should not be made to feel bad nor should they have to struggle to lose weight as they will be coming from the wrong mindset and attitude.
With that in mind, the easier you can make your weight loss program, the more chances of success you will have.
You ideally, want a quick and easy weight loss program that is going to help you to lose fat fast and not muscle, but at the same time, it is not going to defeat you and cause you immense daily suffering.
How to lose weight fast, but as effortless as possible
Would you like to lose weight without all those hard to stick at, tedious weight loss diets and rigorous and gruelling exercise routines.
Exercising is good, as it helps to keep you fit, it helps to tone your muscles and it can help you to reduce stress and boost your mood.
But, surprisingly. You need to do a lot of vigorous exercise, just to burn off, a few calories.
It is estimated that a 25 minute walk burns off approximately 145 calories and a brisk, vigorous, fast pace walk, burns off around 230 calories.
Biking for 30 minutes burns off around 145 calories and a fast pace 30 minute bike ride, burns off around 295 calories.
A general estimate is. One pound of fat equals around 3,500 calories. Therefore, a vigorous, 30 minute bike will roughly burn of less than a tenth of body fat.
Therefore, if you vigorously exercise for around 30 minutes per day, you're not going to lose much weight.
The last thing you want, after performing a vigorous exercise routine, is to know that you have only burned off a few hundred calories.
Because the last thing you want, when you're feeling all pumped up and optimistic because you have followed a strict weight loss routine all week. Is to step on the scales, only to find out, you have loss very little weight.
When you add and mix together an easy to follow exercise routine with a sensible and good weight loss strategy, that is not to restricting or self tortuous.
Then you will build a platform that will see the weight fall off and remain off, without all the struggles, impossible to follow, weight loss strategies and mind battles.
Having a good strategy to follow
Very often you will find that if you have no long term strategy and plans of how you're going to sustain the progressive weight loss and then more importantly, keeping your ideal target weight.
Then you will find that two things tend to happen which are, you will initially lose a bit of weight, but after a short period of success they give up.
Or they will manage to lose weight, but they end up putting it all back on and in some cases, they end up even heavier than they originally were.
Most new year's weight loss campaigns usually follow the strategy of, that once they lose the weight they’ll just figure out a way to keep it off.
But the reality is, this kind of strategy rarely ever works.
You must have heard the famous quote by Benjamin Franklin
"if you fail to plan, you plan to fail."
So, what’s the alternative?
From the very beginning focus on creating a sustainable lifestyle that not only maintains your ideal weight, but also increases the quality of your life.
I prefer this lifestyle approach because it’s not just about eating and exercising.
It’s about cultivating better sleep, more relaxation,
deeper breathing, drinking more water, feeling brighter moods and positive mental programming.
If you start with your maintenance in mind, it’s a completely different process.
If you're tired of wasting your time on diets, this could be your answer.
Unrealistic Calorie Intakes
The first big reason why most diets fail is because they simply have you striving to take in an unrealistic number of calories each day.
In other words, they put you into “starvation mode”. They are causing you to consume so little food that your body literally starts shutting down to conserve fuel.
When it does this, you know that you are on a one-way path to a fat loss plateau. Yes, you do need to lower your calorie intake to see fat loss results, but you need to do so wisely in a way that you can maintain your “metabolic engine”, so to speak.
Lack Of Satiety-Boosting Nutrients
Next, another big issue with most conventional diets is they
aren’t providing you enough of the two most satisfying nutrients: protein and fiber.
You need protein to function optimally. It’s also the nutrient that’s the slowest to break down and digest in the body, so it will provide immediate satiety.
Couple that with dietary fiber, which is found in fresh fruits and vegetables, and it’ll slow digestion even further.
Many crash diet plans are very low in protein, and while they do have you eating lots of vegetables, many discourage the consumption of fruit.
By making these two nutrients a focus of your plan instead, you can see results that much faster and enjoy being on the diet while you do.
Time Consuming Meal Prep
Who has an hour each and every day to meal prep? Not me — and definitely not you. Yet, many diet plans are so complex that they require this. If that’s the diet you’re on, it’s no wonder you’re failing.
Instead, you want to find an approach that gives you some basic and easy-to-implement guidelines that will help you realize true success with your program.
This plan should not take hours to follow each week, and should work with your lifestyle. When you find such a plan, it’ll be easier than ever to stick with.
Now, chances are you’ve heard that any diet you follow should encourage a long-term approach — and I agree.
When you make
diet changes, you should be focusing on maintaining healthy eating in the long term.
But, if your diet plan is designed to go on for months, this can kill your motivation in its tracks.
Find a diet with a definite deadline. Three weeks is optimal here as that is the amount of time it takes to build good habits – habits that stick.
Also, three weeks is a long enough period of time that you can see good results, but not so long that it’s hard to stay motivated.
Anyone should be able to do three weeks if they put their mind to it. This is precisely what The 3 Week Diet
is built upon.
By doing this diet, you can see remarka
ble changes in as little as three short weeks and once you see how easy it is to melt the fat, you’ll want to stick with the plan much longer than that.
