FAST WEIGHT LOSS DIET
The Fast Weight Loss Diet is the best weight loss program I know for natural weight loss. This page is full of weight loss tips to help you get in shape! There are a lot of things involved in achieving quick weight loss. The kind of weight loss I am going to write about, is not dehydrating yourself for a weigh-in for an athletic contest. I am going to write about fat loss, and doing it quickly and safely.
The Fast Weight Loss Diet combines many weight loss tips into one comprehensive, effective program. You do not need to go to a Weight Loss Camp to lose weight, but you do need discipline. If you are motivated to achieve your weight loss goals, then let’s get to it.
The key to success in natural weight loss, is to keep your body guessing, and to be consistent. You have all probably heard about the Atkins diet, and how severely limiting your carbohydrate intake can induce weight loss. The other side of that coin is that your body needs carbohydrates to function properly. The Fast Weight Loss Diet uses the best of both worlds and that is why I believe that it is the best weight loss program. The first thing we need to do is to determine how many calories your body requires to maintain your current weight. If you keep track of everything that you eat, in a food log, this will be easy. Unfortunately, most people don’t do this. The next best thing to do is to start to write down everything that you eat for the next seven days, and use a calorie counter to figure out how many calories you are currently eating. If your bodyweight has remained the same over those seven days, add up the total calories and divide that number by seven. That is your maintenance level of calories.
If you are in a hurry to start your weight loss with the Fast Weight Loss Diet, and you don’t want to wait for seven days, there is another way to find out what your maintenance level of calories is. It is not quite as accurate, but if you are in a hurry to get in shape, this will do the trick. Take your bodyweight in pounds and multiply that number by 10. Use that number as your maintenance level of calories.
The first two days of the Fast Weight Loss Diet requires you to eat your maintenance level of calories minus 200. Not too tough, right? The harder part for some is that all of those calories must come from lean protein sources. For natural weight loss, and more importantly, fat loss, you will want to limit your carbohydrates and fats for two days. During that time, your body will be forced to burn excess bodyfat for fuel, and all the protein you are eating will help you maintain your current muscle mass. This is important, because even if you aren't concerned with having big muscles, the muscle mass will help your body burn more calories. If you lose muscle, you slow down your metabolism, and that is not a good thing. You will notice some quick weight loss due to the excess water leaving your body during the first two days as well, but that is just temporary. We are more concerned with the fat loss.
For those of you that are not nutrition savvy, let me describe the kinds of foods that are considered lean protein sources. Chicken breasts, Turkey breasts, fish, water-packed tuna, and lean cuts of beef. Another excellent form of protein is a Protein Shake. Make sure to use the kind without extra carbohydrates. It should go without saying, but I will say it anyway. No skin on the chicken or turkey, and no oil on any of it. Pay attention to what you put on your food because those calories, carbs and fat count too. With the Fast Weight Loss Diet you can have salad and vegetables on the first two days, but don't get carried away. You can use A-1 steak sauce or barbecue sauce with the meat, and salad dressing with the salad, but count those calories, and be careful not to overdo it. An important weight loss tip is to make sure you drink plenty of water all the time, but especially during the first two days.
On the third day, double your calories. That's right, double them. If you were eating 1,000 calories a day for the first two days, you would eat 2,000 calories on the third. You will also change the kind of calories you will be eating. The Fast Weight Loss Diet requires you to eat a small amount of protein on the third day, maybe 20 percent of your calories. The vast majority of what you eat, about 70 percent, should be carbohydrates. The preferred forms should be grains and vegetables, but you can have some fruit as well. The remaining 10 percent of your calories will consist of fat, but you won't have to try too hard to squeeze that in. As a matter of fact, it will be harder to keep the fat calories down to 10 percent. Day three allows your muscles to fill up with glycogen, or energy, and water again. This will keep you from losing muscle, and maintain a high metabolism.
The fourth day of the Fast Weight Loss Diet has you eating one and a half times the calories eaten on day one, or 1,500 calories if you were eating 1,000. On this day, your calories should be divided up like this: Protein should be 35 percent. Carbohydrates should be 50 percent. Fat can be up to 15 percent, which still is not very much, so watch it. Remember that the kind and quality of food that you eat should remain the same each day, only the proportions of protein, carbohydrate, and fats should change. This day will help your body normalize a little bit, so that when you start at day 1 the next day, your body will again experience some real fat loss.
The Fast Weight Loss Diet is the best weight loss program because it keeps your body from adapting to your fat loss plan. The first two days cause your body to burn fat at a fast pace. If you continue with this type of eating for too long, your body will lose too much muscle, adapt to the lack of carbohydrates and your metabolism with slow down. Instead of continuing with the low carbohydrate approach for too long, we switch to a high carbohydrate intake on day three. This causes your muscles to fill up with energy and water, which provides your body the fuel it needs to work properly, and helps put your body in position to lose weight again without the negative effects of continuing with low carbohydrates for too long. On the other hand, if you continue to eat too many carbs for too long, your body will start to accumulate more bodyfat. One day is just fine, and if you follow the guidelines for the proper amount of calories, you will not gain any bodyfat on day three, but to avoid gaining bodyfat after day three, we move on to day four. On day four, we follow a balanced diet of nutritious foods at our maintenance level of calories to allow our bodies to normalize, preparing ourselves to lose more weight.
After Day Four start over again and repeat the four days of the Fast Weight Loss Diet. Weigh yourself in the morning of Day One each time through the cycle. You should be losing weight consistently, but if you get to a point where you have not lost even one pound from one cycle to the next, drop 200 calories from each day for the next cycle.
Now there are a couple of weight loss tips that can dramatically increase the success of your weight loss program. Many people are looking for a magic Weight Loss Pill. There are no magic pills, but there are some dietary supplements that can help to increase your metabolism and encourage your body to use your bodyfat for energy instead of other sources. I suggest the use of these supplements in conjunction with the Fast Weight Loss Diet.

The Fast Weight Loss Diet works great with these training tips.
Besides following the diet portion of the Fast Weight Loss Diet program, you should exercise. Most people think of cardiovascular or aerobic exercise when they think of weight loss. That kind of exercise is important for both good health, and for fat loss. You should include cardiovascular exercise, such as bike riding, walking or running at least three times a week for at least 30 minutes at a time for natural weight loss. You may find that you enjoy running with your dog, if you have one. They can be great for companionship and protection while running.
The most important kind of exercise for weight loss is resistance training. Lifting weights helps to increase your muscle mass, which increases your metabolism, allowing your body to burn fat faster! Depending on your goals, the ways you can lift weights are explained throughout this website.
