Now that I know how weight loss really works, I can lose it fairly quickly when I want to. However, it wasn’t always that way. Sometimes it took me months to lose about one pound. That’s because I had no idea how fast weight loss really worked. For example, I thought that if I just went hungry, that would cause quick fat loss.
However, I didn’t know that caused my body to go into “survival mode” where it tried to hang on to as much body fat as possible. So yes, there are ways to lose weight quickly other than going hungry. However, many people go about them all wrong. First there is no such thing as a fast weight loss shortcut. You can try a bogus body wrap, sweat suit, etc, but with these all you loose is water weight.
You can also try to use other useless fast weight loss shortcuts like diet pills, herbs, teas, patches, lotions muscle contractors, etc.- but again, all that’s going to happen is you’re going to waste money and time- time you could be spending losing weight quickly the way it works in reality.
If your skeptical about weight loss shortcuts not working because all the advertising says they do work, just remember this: Nearly two out of three Americans are overweight or obese, while spending over 50 billion dollars annually on weight loss products. So if anything you could buy really made you lose weight fast, would this many people still be overweight?
So what are some fast way to lose weight?
You have to burn off that fat. Nothing else works. Meaning, you have to use more calories that you consume. The faster you burn them off, the faster you will lose weight. It really is that simple. Let me give you an example of super fast weight loss:
Several years ago there was a a cable documentary about a man that lost fourteen pounds in around twelve hours. How? He swam the English Channel. Since he didn’t eat while swimming, his body had no choice but to use fat stores for energy. Calories consumed as energy depends on the person and the activity. In his case, around 49,000 calories of energy were consumed from fat in twelve hours.
Now note I’m not saying you should try this. This guy was is really good shape. As a matter of fact, he put those extra pounds on intentionally, because he knew fat was going to be needed for energy. I’m just providing an example of how fast weight loss can work in the “real” world.
If you want to lose weight quickly, you can do something similar, just not so extreme. The first thing you need to do is change as many weight gain habits as possible over to weight loss habits. The more habits you change, the faster the weight will be burned off. If you don’t have any interest in giving up double cheese supreme pizzas or going running instead of sitting on the sofa- then you’re wasting your time. You have to burn off as many calories as you can- while you reduce the calories that are coming in [without going overboard and throwing your body into survival mode].
So don’t try to starve yourself and don’t go on a special diet. [Dieting is just another useless trap that has been PROVEN not to work. Just eat more foods that fill you up with far fewer calories, like fruits and veggies. To lose weight as fast, easily, and safely as possible- you need to keep an eye on calorie density. This just means instead of filling up on Big Macs, you fill up on healthy natural fibrous foods like fruits and veggies, along with other natural foods that are low in carbs and high in protein like cold water fish, lean meats, eggs, etc.
Don’t go overboard and cut out carbs, your body needs carbs for energy. However, it does NOT need the man made carbs that come in cake, candy, donuts, chips, sodas, energy drinks, etc. You are trying to burn fat for fuel. If you fill up on junk food, your body will NEVER tap into your fat stores for fuel.
So eat natural carbs, just keep an eye on them while you are in fast weight loss mode. Here’s my best how to lose weight fast [http://www.how-to-lose-weight-fast.org] tips:
Do not drink colas [even diet] sport drinks, or energy drinks. These are filled with carbs that keep you from tapping into your fat stores. Milk is also loaded with carbs in the form of lactose- a sugar. If you want to drop weight as quickly as possible, stick to water or tea [no coffee].
Eat your natural carbs early in the day. That way you have the entire day to burn them off.
Eat NO carbs after around 6 PM- especially the carbs in junk food- or bread and pasta.
Do some cardio before you go to bed, this way you burn off any left over carbs and don’t store them as fat when your metabolism slows way down as you sleep.
Do at least a 20 minute cardio workout first thing in the morning on a empty stomach- or with a very small amount of protein, say 25 grams max. Then wait about an hour before you eat. If you can, don’t sit down for that hour. Then eat nothing but protein- like eggs or lean meat- for breakfast. Do you see why this fast fat loss tip works so well? You wake up with no fuel in your system, so when you get active, your body has no choice but to burn fat for fuel.
If you want to make weight loss as fast as possible, let food do the work for you. Eat unprocessed foods and three or four natural snacks a day. When you go to have your main meals, eat bulky and fibrous foods first- like fruits and veggies. This way you get full before you eat too many calories- and the more calories you eat, the more you have to burn off.
Be careful and use your common sense. In my humble opinion, talk to your doctor first. Tell him / her what you have in mind. Your doctor knows your health history better than me, and will able to give you specific advise on how many calories you can safely cut back on- and how much physical activity you can tolerate without hurting yourself.
So yes, there are fast ways to lose weight. However diet products sold by the giant weight loss industry are not one of them. You have to burn off more calories than you consume- nothing else works.
If you read this and just thought “whoa- this sounds like a lot of work. I don’t know if I can do all this” all I can tell you is this:
It’s all in the habits. The more weight gain habits you change over to weight loss habits, the faster you will lose weight.
Sure, I could tell you that I lost 30 pounds in thirty days by using Acai berry, hoodia, a patch, or a colon cleanse.
But that would be a lie.
Gaining control of your weight habits can change your entire life so much, that I’d rather die poor than to lie to you. Know why? Because I know that if you buy a fast weight loss shortcut, it won’t work. Then you might give up on losing weight- permanently.
I don’t want that to happen.

There’s no secret lose weight really fast tips, it’s all the common sense things that I just told you about- that work in the real world.
It’s nothing you won’t be able to learn too. Fast weight loss is just like trying to learn any new skill, like swimming. The slowest and most frustrating part in the very beginning. After that, it’s easy, and you have a skill that will serve you the rest of your life.
