Simple Yet Effective Weight Loss Tips

By Russ Howe


As a fitness instructor I am often asked about how to lose weight as fast as possible. Usually this question arrives from women looking to drop a dress size for an important event or wedding, and quite often their need for a 'gimmick' and their lack of interest in anything which isn't going to provide overnight success is what prevents them from reaching their goal. We know people who have literally spent two years trying to lose weight instantly.



Today I bring you 5 favorite, tried and tested weight loss strategies which, if used correctly, will help even the most stubborn body to drop a dress size in no time at all.

* The first thing to do is figure out your daily calories and work at a slight deficit from now on.

* Next up is protein. If you like to snack during the day try to load up on foods which are rich in protein. It impacts fat storage less than the other two macro nutrients so you'll be able to eat and enjoy it without the negatives of carbs or fats.

* Losing weight takes willpower. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't help yourself out whenever you can with a little unfair trick or two. You are easily more vulnerable to a fatty snack when you are halfway through a monster shift at your job and do not have any convenient tasty healthy food at hand. Take three-to-four small snack tubs in your back pack with you to work each day. Pack them with a protein rich snack. The calories won't be very high given the size of the actual tub, but the protein will fend off all hunger and have far less impact on your body's fat storage systems than a chocolate bar. Plus you'll actually feel better.

* Fourth comes the tried and tested carb deficit. The basic rule when cutting down on bad carbs and bad fats is to also increase your protein intake. If you fail to do this you will hit a wall and find it impossible to lose any more weight after a couple of weeks.

* Finally we discuss the the benefits of having a day off. Regardless of whether you need one or would simply like one, the benefits of taking a day off your diet at the end of each week far outweigh the downsides.

Temptation is our worst enemy when dieting, so it makes a lot of valid sense to take a day off each week. Label it a 'reward' or 'treat' if you wish, but basically this will help you to stick to your program for far longer. If you have ever known someone attempt a diet plan and fall spectacularly off the rails after about 3 weeks you'll know this makes perfect sense.

The fact is that day off gives you something to aim for during a tough week, too. If you are new to weight loss and are struggling to get through a difficult, testing week sometimes just having that light at the end of the tunnel to look forward to is more than enough to help you stay on track to reach your goals.

Nobody we ever meet in the gym says they want to lose weight without following it up with the fact that they also want the weight to stay off forever. We've all known a yo-yo dieter and the terrible things they do to their body every three months or so is definitely not something most people want to follow. These steps will help you not only to lose the initial weight you're after, but they will also ensure it stays off for good.
