Fast Weight Loss Tips

Posted February 8th, 2011 by admin and filed in Weight Loss

Rapid weight loss is much speculated about in the media and numerous advertising campaigns. The weight loss industry constantly comes up with new products that are claimed to be really effective but never live up to the expectations of people paying their money for it. As a result the weight loss product industry accounts billions of dollars each year while the number of clinically obese people has reached a status of an epidemic in the US. Does this mean that rapid weight loss is just a spoof? In fact, no. But it’s not a matter of miraculous pills, expensive private programs or exotic diets. And here’s what you need for really rapid and effective weight loss:

Low calorie diet
First of all, you should eliminate the actual cause of weight gain – excessive food intake. You have to limit your daily calorie intake in order to get any results from any other weight loss measures. This is most effectively done by eating foods with low calorie density. To make it sound a bit simpler you should forget about any kinds of fast and processed foods, sweets, soft drinks and snacks. Fruits, vegetables, poultry, red meat, and fish should become literally meat and potatoes of your diet. And you should also keep your portions moderate in order to keep the calorie intake adequate to your daily needs, rather feeling your stomach when you feel like it.

Intense exercise program
While keeping your calorie intake on a healthy level with a diet you will have to do something about the excessive weight you already have. The most effective way of shedding it off is exercising, as any physical activity requires energy, and energy is exactly what’s stored in the form of fat in our bodies. It doesn’t really matter what type of physical activity you choose – working out, running, swimming, cycling or yoga – as long as your heart rate gets fast enough during the exercise in order to burn fat. The more you do any kind of exercise the better will be your results and the easier it will be to lose weight effectively. However, don’t too much pressure on your body right from the start. You should gradually increase the intensity of your exercises in order to prevent over-exhaustion and stress.

Appetite control
Appetite control is the third important element of rapid weight loss and probably the hardest to maintain. Every person that has tried any weight loss programs in the past will agree that the hardest thing about diets and exercises is the overwhelming feeling of hunger that makes it really hard to keep your hands far from the fridge. That’s where you also have different options. One option is to consume a lot of fiber-rich foods (fruits, vegetables, etc.) that will keep your feeling full for much longer than any other kinds of food. Another option is using diet suppressants like Acomplia. Drugs like Acomplia mostly work by suppressing the appetite and inducing the feeling of satiety, which helps get rid of the constant food cravings during the weight loss period. However, you should first contact your doctor if you want to start using drugs like Acomplia in order to get a prescription.
