Cardiologist Recommends This Diet With Which You Will Lose 22 Pounds in one Week!

Many people who want to lose weight tell me that they simply eat less in the hope that it works that way. The disillusionment usually follows after a few weeks: if at all, then it only works for a short time. You'll be back on those starving kilos faster than you want! If your goal is "losing weight successfully" try my 10 following strategies as an alternative:

Lose Weight Successfully: 10 strategies to help you lose weight

1) Stick to "real" natural food

If you eat "real", natural food, you will find that you simply get full faster and stay full longer. My tip: Eat vegetables, fruits, wholemeal products, nuts, seeds, and fresh meat, eggs and fish if you like. Avoid artificially produced, preserved and refined foods whenever you can.

Now you're probably thinking to yourself, "I already knew that, that's nothing new." But do you?

Are you sure you don't eat ready-made? And do you even know why finished products undermine our plan to eat less? Finished products usually contain artificial additives or flavours, flavour enhancers and sugars such as maltodextrin or glucose syrup. All these ingredients mean that we get more hunger, are less full for long and also develop a craving for unhealthy food. One reason for this is that they cause high insulin levels in the body and insulin is known as a "fattening hormone". Another reason for this is that finished products are not complete, natural foods and that the body recognizes that it lacks nutrients when it receives these foods. And the hunger you feel is actually your body's cry for the missing nutrients.

2) Eat breakfast



Time is often tight in the morning. Do you prefer to sleep 30 minutes longer and leave the house without breakfast? Just observe whether you don't get hungry at 9 or 10 o'clock and then compensate with little things like a croissant or a fruit yogurt. Or if you get so hungry that you eat a huge portion including dessert at lunch.

And what should I eat in the morning?

To answer this would probably require a whole article of one's own! But so much is betrayed: as low in sugar as possible, high in protein and also satiating, for example a chia muesli with apple. Or get inspired by more breakfast ideas here on the blog.

3) Take advantage of the crowding-out effect

Our human brain functions in such a way that we usually desire all the more what we cannot have. If I forbid myself something, then I would like to have it more than ever! Therefore, instead of thinking "I have to eat less of...", I recommend you to eat more of the right foods. Keep the focus on all the great foods you "may" eat instead of concentrating on what you have to "do without".

The right foods in this case are mainly vegetables and also fruits that contain a lot of water and little carbohydrates. Because we can eat a lot of vegetables in terms of volume and still do not consume many calories. Try to arrange your plate so that half of your plate is filled with vegetables and salad. "Dense" foods with a low water content, such as bread, rice or noodles, should only be a side dish and take up a small portion of the plate.

Rule of thumb: 1 serving spoonful of side dishes is enough. The more of the "good" food I eat, the less room remains for the "unfavorable" food. That's what I call the crowding-out effect.

4) Drink enough water

Sometimes we confuse the signal for hunger with the signal for thirst. So my tip if you feel hungry: first drink a glass of still water and wait a few minutes to find out if you are still hungry. Another advantage: through a sufficient fluid intake you will think clearer and get an improved concentration. And if you're well supplied with water, your organs work optimally. This increases your metabolism, allowing you to burn more fat. I have had customers who have only started to lose weight since they started drinking enough water! Water really is a "killer criterion" for losing weight. And by water, I mean still water, by the way. No taste.

The trick with drinking: it is better to drink a few sips regularly throughout the day instead of pouring half a litre into yourself at once. And if you are one of those people who don't like water (yes, there is!), then experiment with different types of water: performance water, low-mineral water, mineral-rich water, etc... Until you find one that will work.

If losing weight is your goal, then try drinking 30ml of water per kilogram of body weight once.

Lose Weight Successfully

5) Avoid sugar and other sweets as best you can!

I know. This strategy is extremely unpopular and not always easy to implement. But it is actually THE strategy par excellence if you want to lose weight. Sugar increases your insulin level and insulin prevents fat breakdown and promotes fat storage. So sweets are not primarily about the amount of calories, but about their effect on the body!

Sugar also increases inflammatory processes in the body, suppresses the feeling of satiety, robs micronutrients and much more.

My guess is: Eat a low-sugar breakfast in the morning. Don't drink sweet drinks (including artificially sweetened or "zero" drinks), fruit juices and make your own desserts, then you have it under control with the amount of sugar they use. And keep your hands off artificial sweeteners, because they increase the feeling of hunger and there are more and more critical voices that artificial sweeteners make us fat.

The main problem with letting go of sugar is that it is an addictive substance. And that's why you often have to deal with it like an addiction: complete withdrawal. Do you want to know if you're a sugar junkie? Then download our free sugar quiz:

6) Eat enough good fat

This may seem a little strange. But our body needs fat to break down fat! Fat is often wrongly demonized because it has more calories than protein and carbohydrates. But good fatty acids are vital to your heart. Good fats from e.g. fish, nuts, olive oil, coconut oil, eggs and avocados increase your energy and supply your brain. This increases your ability to think and asks your body to use the stored fat as fuel for your metabolism.

Fat also signals to your brain that enough food is being taken in, which makes you feel fuller more quickly.

Lose Weight Successfully

7) Take 3-5 deep breaths before you eat

Eating often has a calming effect on us. Sometimes we even just eat something to calm down after a stressful situation. Get used to breathing in deeply 3-5 times before eating so that you can calm yourself mentally and physically. This strategy tricks our subconscious into thinking you're relaxed.

When you then start your meal, the food is no longer used to calm you down, so you can eat slower, chew well and feel when you are full.

8) Eat only 3 times a day

If you follow strategy 1-7 you will notice that the saturation effect of your meals works very well. We don't have to eat all the time to have enough energy during the day! At no time has man eaten as much in between as now, and at no time has man moved as little as now.

If you want to lose weight, do without snacks! The positive side effect of this is that your digestion also benefits if it does not have to work continuously or is even overly strained by constant food replenishment!

9) Sleep yourself slimmer

Studies have shown that people who sleep longer burn more fat. One of the reasons for this is that short sleepers produce more of the appetite-stimulating hormone ghrelin, which contributes to weight gain. This alone is reason enough to understand the importance of sleep.

My tip: Allow yourself at least 7 hours of sleep per night for 14 days. Turn off your computer, mobile phone or tablet one hour before bed rest and do not use your mobile phone as an alarm clock! Your bedroom should be free of cell phones and other electronic devices.

10) Stay tuned

Not the beginning is the hardest, but often the staying on. Sometimes I hear disappointed and sometimes even reproachful statements that with the right diet you can lose weight, but that you also gain weight again quickly if you no longer follow it. If you gain weight before losing weight and eat the same food again after losing weight as before, you will gain weight again! That's just logical.

That means you can only lose weight and then keep it if you stay on it. Of course, this does not mean that you can never again eat a piece of chocolate, a dessert, a glass of wine or a pizza. But it just means that you have to learn new habits, which you will then keep to in the long run.

Lose weight successfully: Try it out and get into action

So there were 10 strategies to help you lose weight successfully. But perhaps my most important tip: don't believe what someone else tells you about nutrition. But try it out for yourself, become an explorer of your own body. For as the Roman philosopher Lucretius said:

What is one man's food is another man's bitter poison.

Of course, there are generally valid principles for losing weight. But since we react differently to food, have our own genetic conditions and are also in our unique circumstances, it is important that you find your personal approach that works for you. The responsibility for your health and your body always lies with yourself.

Lose Weight Successfully: 10 strategies to help you lose weight

Hello Weight Loss prospects. This is how I lost 17 unwanted pounds.

I began to look at myself a year ago and wondered if I was gaining weight so I decided to get on the scale and check my weight. So I did. To my surprise I was shockingly 210 lbs. Maybe it was from all of the potato chips, cookies and ice cream I devoured as I relaxed on the couch. I had no idea how I lost the momentum to say no to snacks. We all know what that's like right? Well if you don't pay attention to how much of it you eat it will catch up to you faster than you think. It progressively grows and before you know it you are in deep trouble with your weight. Then comes other health issues. So I'm going to tell you how I lost 17 unwanted pounds.

How I Lost 17 Unwanted Pounds

I can remember it was Christmas time and all I could think about was getting my hands on some scrumptious holiday cookies. Everybody knows someone that makes holiday cookies and we all want some. I would get some from a co-worker, a neighbor, and a family member. That's because everyone knows I Love cookies. But respectfully passed on them. I lost interest in them and then I thought to myself "Maybe I should skip them indefinitely" and eat something that's better for my body. So I did.

For the first time, I felt something inside me that was positive about eating healthier foods. Although I wanted to taste just 1 cookie, I passed on the idea. Instead I went to the refrigerator and pulled out some celery and munched on those to cure the need for a cookie. Oh how bland and boring they were, but I said to myself "This Is Gotta Be The Way" or forget the whole idea. I didn't eat a huge amount of them, just enough to keep me from feeling hungry at that time.

So I decided to put them in my lunch everyday for 3 months. Now you might be wondering what else am I'm eating for lunch right? Well I had a plan in place for that also. I decided to have soup for lunch 3 of the 5 days out of the week. So far that's about 2 oz of celery and a can of soup. Then I decided that I am going to need a piece of fruit too, so I added that into my lunch. Now I know you are wondering "what do I eat for breakfast" but I already had that in the bag. I have a bowl of oatmeal because it cuts down on your cholesterol, with a cup of juice and my daily vitamins. So breakfast was a no brainer. I just needed to focus on the rest of the day.

Now that I have the 3 items in my lunch I thought that I might be too hungry to wait for lunch so I added a hard boiled egg and some yogurt and a handful of nutritious nuts to eat on my break which was exactly 3 hours after I ate breakfast. So I started to eat only those items for 3 months for the first part of my day. The other 2 days I didn't have soup, I incorporated a chicken sandwich for added protein or a leftover from dinner. Remember that it's all about portion control!

After I had consumed about 900 calories for the first part of my day I need to have a good dinner so that I could consume my needed amount of calories for the day which was 2300. At this point I had another 1400 calories to go for the day. I thought it would be a no brainer. Yea, right! not too easy considering I wanted to eat a healthy dinner too. So I decided that dinner would be a salad with chicken, beef or salmon. Well I decided that I would have all of them 3 days a week, separately of course. So I did. By now you must think I'm crazy to do something like this out of the ordinary.

The other 4 dinners of the week consisted of something I knew would be healthy so I just improvised as the days came. After trying this method for a month It got me nowhere. So I thought to myself it's time to get in shape while I try to lose the 10 lbs I originally planned on losing. I decided to do a cardio workout for 3 days a week. So I did. I stuck with it because I was determined to loose the unwanted 17 pounds.

Days have gone by and I've gotten zero results after sticking to my plan and incorporating my exercise routine until one morning I weighed myself and discovered that I had taken off 2 pounds. Oh how excited I was to know that! With those results I felt the urge to keep at it. So I continued to eat my selected items for breakfast, morning snack, and lunch with a good healthy dinner. Then I discovered that I didn't consume the correct amount of calories for my daily consumption. I was 400 calories under. I stuck with it and continued with my plan. I ate at the correct times and exercised when I got out of work by doing a cardio workout for 50 minutes. I really broke a sweat as I had to peel of my clothes to shower. When I was done with my workout I had burned 847 -890 calories. WOW! That was nearly everything I had consumed for breakfast, morning snack, and lunch. So I kept at it.

3 months later I had lost 12 pounds! I continue to use this tactic, and lost an additional 5 pounds for a total of 17 pounds lost. 5 months later I have maintained the 17 unwanted pounds by eating healthier and continuing to exercise 3 times a week. I used an assortment of cardio DVDs throughout my routine and I feel great! I lost a slight back pain and I have more energy than the sun! I believe if you need to loose the extra pounds, YOU should try it too. Keep in mind that I had a goal and I made that goal with dedication. I was in no rush, I wanted success. Highly recommended!!!

How I Lost 17 Unwanted Pounds

Have you ever looked for tips to lose weight and found that you could spend hours, days or weeks reading up on the inner workings of metabolism and the metamorphosis of the oxidation of the fat producing cells? Well, if you are anything like me (and I hope you are not) you probably just want some simple tips to lose weight. So, I've listed a few tips for losing weight below for you.

12 Tips To Help You Lose Weight Fast In The New Year

1. Know Your Daily Caloric Requirement - When starting a weight loss plan, you need to determine how many calories you should be having a day. Online calculators abound that will let you input your height, weight, age, activity level and the amount you want to lose and will provide you the total calories you should eat each day. If you know the calories you should consume each day, it's much easier to stay within the guidelines.

2. Cut The Sugar - If you want to lose weight, try cutting sugar from your diet. Sugar adds a lot of unneeded calories to your diet. Sugar will often give you an energy boost, but it doesn't last nearly as long as healthy foods and can leave you feeling drained afterwards. If you cut out sugar, you'll cut out a lot of junk food. The less junk food you eat, the less calories you'll take in.

3. Don't Tempt Yourself, Eat BEFORE Shopping - A tip that may help you lose weight is to eat right before you do your grocery shopping. A classic mistake people make is when they do all of their grocery shopping when they're hungry. They get overzealous and end up getting more food than they normally would have.

4. Ramp Up Your Fiber Intake - For losing weight, nothing is better than eating high amounts of fiber. Fiber is found in whole grain foods, nuts and plenty of fruits and vegetables. Fiber takes longer for the body to break it down, so you feel full for much longer and won't start craving snacks and unhealthy foods.

5. Eat Smaller Meals As The Day Progresses - One weight loss tip that sometimes goes unnoticed, is to eat more at the beginning of the day and less at night. Think about it, you need energy to complete your tasks for the day, so it makes sense to eat a moderately large breakfast, a regular lunch and a modest dinner. Plus, it's a good excuse to make eggs and bacon for breakfast (turkey bacon of course!).

6. Fill Up With Water - Before sitting down to a meal, have a glass or two of water. This creates a feeling of being a little full, and you won't eat as much. Water is a good way to make sure you don't gorge yourself, and it's also a good way to clean your system.

7. Slow Down When Eating And Enjoy - A great weight loss tip is to make sure you are not eating too fast. When you are eating, your brain requires some time to let you know you are full. You need to be able to have a conversation while eating. If you are eating so fast that you can not hold a conversation, then you are eating too fast. Otherwise, you are good.

8. Forget The Word "Diet" And Focus On A Sustainable Lifestyle Change - If you are trying to achieve and maintain a healthy weight for life, stop dieting. Yoyo dieting leads to an overall weight gain over time and it is detrimental to your health. Instead, opt for making slow and steady permanent lifestyle changes that you can stick to for the rest of your life.

9. Cut Out Milk Or Switch To Almond Milk - Although milk really does do a body good, the fat in whole milk will wreak havoc on your waistline. So if you're eating those fiber cereals for breakfast or enjoying a glass of milk in place of that sweet tea or glass of wine, remember to go for low-fat or non-fat milk. The taste difference is negligible, but there's a big difference in the bottom line. Another option is to use unsweetened almond milk, it last substantially longer than regular milk, has no saturated fats and has a creamier texture than traditional non-fat milk.

10. Weight Isn't Beat With Diet Alone, Get Moving Too - A type of good workout that is good for people trying to lose weight is yoga. It can be a very relaxing workout which is great for the mind, though you will also be earning an average of 350 calories for an hours workout. They have many classes you can join, or just find a good workout video and do it alone. If you find yoga is still pushing the limits of what you can do with physical activity just try walking. Walking at a medium pace of 1.5 mph - 2 mph for 1 hour can burn about 200 calories.

11. Plan Or Prep Your Meals In Advance - Planning plays a huge role in weight loss. You should always know what you are going to eat for the day, week or month. Making last minute decisions aren't always the best choice. Have healthy foods packaged in serving sized portions, so that you can easily follow your plan.

12. Consult With A Doctor - Before beginning any diet, weight loss or exercise plan it's a good idea to speak with your doctor. They can provide you with additional options and can help ensure that you are losing weight without putting yourself in danger.

With these simple tips you will be able to meet your weight loss goals. Take it slow and don't fill your head with too many ideas at once. Take one, when you get that right, go for the next one. You may not feel motivated right away, but if you keep at it, you will be healthier in no time.

I know losing weight can be frustrating at times when you think you are doing the right things but seeing no results. May I suggest that you keep going because the only way you will fail is if you stop trying to eat healthy and doing some kind of exercise to lose weight.

12 Tips To Help You Lose Weight Fast In The New Year

Trying to shed a few extra pounds? Don't worry that you'll have to starve yourself or do grueling workouts.

Let us help you get back into shape with simple, logical steps and all we need from your side is some persistence and lot of determination!

10 Ways To Lose 10 Pounds In 10 Weeks Successfully

Here are ten simple strategies that will help you with your aim of losing 10 pounds in 10 weeks!

1. Stop Skipping Meals. 

Slashing one meal per day from your meal seems like a logical way to peel off a few pounds. For instance if you stop eating breakfast typically 500 calories), you'll cut 3,500 calories in several days, roughly the amount needed to burn off one bound.

Trouble is, what miss at one meal you often more than make up for at the next. In a recent study found that breakfast eaters consumed a diet lower in fat and having breakfast may reduce the impulse for snacking on high - calories, high off foods.

Obesity specialist Dr. C. Wayne Callaway says skipping any meal can lower metabolism, which normally speeds up to help digest food. Let's say your body at rest burns 1600 calories daily. If you skip breakfast, you use up 80 fewer calories per day. But if you eat breakfast, your sluggish metabolism revs up to burn those 80 calories. After about 15 months you could burn an extra 35,000 calories, the equivalent of ten pounds.

2. Whole grains Are Best For Weight Loss.

Say bye to processed and refined foods!

We also are strong advocates of “Say No” to packaged food since it contains a solid dose of salt and sugar, not to forget a topping of preservatives!

Whole grains, oats, wheat, porridge is your new best friends whom you take everywhere with you!

3. Go Vegetarian Twice a Week.

Dr. Dean Ornish at the Preventive Medicine Research Institute in Sausalito, California, made headlines when he found the diet and life - style changes could help reverse atherosclerosis, the formation of fatty build - up on the arterial walls. But Ornish also discovered that the low - fat vegetarian diet he prescribed to help unclog arteries can trim waistlines as well. During the first year of his study, patients lost an average of 22 pounds.

This outcome was unexpected because most of the patients were eating more. Dr. Lee Lipsenthal, an Ornish colleague, explains it this way:"A candy bar and a bunch of fresh broccoli have roughly the same number of calories. After eating the candy bar you probably won't feel full. But you'll feel stuffed if you eat the broccoli."

Luckily, you don't need to become a full-time vegetarian to lost weight. Start by replacing meat in two meals per week. Two meatless meals a week could save you 550 or more calories per week - ten pounds in 16 months.

Fuel your body with real food- not fake food

4. Small Portions Kick High Metabolism.

First of all, go small on your portions. Reduce them to half of your present quantity and spread them over six meals.

This simple trick kicks up your metabolism, takes care of your hunger pangs.

Your body will burn more calorie and won’t store fat.

Also, you won’t get attracted to unhealthy foods, thus avoiding additional calorie intake.

5. Water Maintain Hydration.

At wiki-fitness, we worship Water and believe that it is an elixir of all life.

More importantly, it is one inexpensive and easily available ingredient that helps in weight loss. For the starters, it reduces water retention in the body which helps in toning muscles.

Water regularizes your metabolism and is better than the sports drinks and similar add-ons that are loaded with calories, for a post workout intake. (3)

At times, thirst manifests itself like hunger so we advise- try drinking a glassful of water when hunger strikes at odd times. Maybe it is a simple case of thirst!

6. Pro-Proteins Build Muscle To Burn More Calories.

Make sure every meal of yours has proteins like lean meat, lentils and cottage cheese.

Steer clear of red meats that pile on a lot of bad cholesterol in the body.

The next question is ‘whey proteins?’

Proteins strengthen your muscles and are necessary, especially if you practice intense exercise. All the damage, muscle building and toning is directly dependent on your protein intake. (4, 5)

7. Skip Late - Night Munches.

A key obstacle to dropping extra pounds is after - dinner snacking. "If you're had a tough day at the office or trouble with the kids, you may eat more than normal to unwind," says medical researcher John Foreyt. He suggests you plan evenings so you're away from tempting situations. Take an adult - education course or go for a walk around the neighborhood. If you can't distract yourself from eating, try noshing on a low - calorie snack like a piece of fresh fruit.

8. Cardio Exercise Are Best To Burn More Calorie In Less Time.

Cardio exercises are your best bet when it comes to weight loss.

It increases your heart rate and pump up your stamina to lose those extra pounds. If gym and conventional exercises are not your things, then go to dance classes that go really intense.

A class of Zumba or power yoga will not only take your breath away but the tone you like a dream!

9. Get an Exercise Buddy To Stay Motivated.

Exercising and sticking to it every single day is one hell of a job!

Most of the time we are either too lazy to get going or too tired or too late….. excuses are many, but the loss is definitely only ours!

So, get a workout buddy or buddies. This makes the workout more enjoyable and if one is down, then rest will lift his spirits and encourage to hit that treadmill.

Exercise can be a great bonding time between partners and a great way to spend some time together as well!

Lose 10 Pounds In 10 Weeks Successfully

10. High Intensity Interval Training Is The Best Way To Lose Weight.

This concept has been around for a while, but has suddenly caught everyone’s interest, but for once it is not smoke without fire.

HIIT involves going gently into your exercise and then give it an intense spike for a few minutes before returning to the normal level.

This technique can be incorporated into your running routine easily where you begin with a jog, then break into a sprint for a few minutes, go back to jogging for minutes and repeat.

Lose 10 Pounds in 10 Days - Proven Tips to Help You Lose 10 Pounds by the End of the Next Week

Losing weight for overweight people is one of the hardest things to do. Many people run in to problems deciding what diet they are going to try, how long they have to exercise to lose weight, and most importantly how they are going to change the way that they live their lives so that they can eventually lose the weight and keep it off. The goal of this article is to share my story and my approach with you, to hopefully give you some insight to get started with your body transformation. Now to give you a little background of myself, hands I've always loved to eat. I was somewhat active, but did not ever really take the time to focus my efforts on weight loss. I was always conscious about my weight, but it wasn't till I hit my high mark of 260lbs when I realized, "Wow I Really Look Big, what Happened?" From that moment on I made it my job to exercise, change my eating habits and change how I live my life.

Kick Start Your Diet: Learn The Secrets That I Did To Lose Over 50 Pounds

Weight loss is not a miracle drug, or a six second video, it takes hard work and persistence. I do have to say that there are products on the market that do help you cut your cravings to kick start your diet though. For instance, I used a product called the Apple Diet Patch, it was a patch that I wore all day that I did not have to monitor, and it helped me to cut my cravings. This helped a lot.

I'm sure you all have heard of a lot of these craving cutter products, some work some don't, this one just happened to work for me. Now that I wasn't hungry all the time I was able to concentrate on ways to transform my body into and I hate saying this, a "fat melting machine." Working out for those people who never really worked out is not as easy as people make it out to be. I used to hear from friends, family, etc, "Greg why don't you just go to the gym?"; Workout its fun and it feels great." Bottom line people for those first couple weeks, it wasn't fun it was painful.

One secret that I learned throughout my weight loss is that, you do not have to turn into a body builder or a marathon runner to lose weight, all you have to do is exercise more than you were doing before. Many people decide that they want to lose weight, so they spend so much money to join a gym, go for a week, hate it, and never or almost never go back. This is one of the stupidest mistakes I made. Joining a gym is a great start, but take it easy. You do not have to work out for 2 hours a day. You can work out for 45 minutes and achieve great results. When I realized this, it is when I began to see the most eye opening changes to my body. Some weight loss tips for the gym are as follows:

Learn The Secrets That I Did To Lose Over 50 Pounds

a) If you have never run on a treadmill before or hate doing it, walking can achieve the same great results. Set the treadmill to 3.5 miles per hour and for each 1 minute interval that you are on the treadmill increase the incline 1 point, so it is like you are walking up a hill. Continue to do this for 7 straight minutes and then begin to decline. Every minute interval decline 1 point. Believe me This is a great exercise that really works.

b) Every time you go to the gym do something different. Lets say you walk on the treadmill one day, the next time ride the bike or use the elliptical machine. This method will allow your body to recognize new forms of motion allowing it to work harder and eventually accommodate to each exercise. In fact, what I do sometimes is spend 10 minutes on each different machine, instead of doing thirty minutes on one. It is surprisingly more fun and it achieves great results.

c) The best advice I can give you is that when it comes to weight lifting for the time being until you are at a weight that you feel comfortable with don't over exceed yourself, you might begin to see results that you won't like. Instead, what you can do is do exercises that use your own body weight, ie, push-ups, whether on your knees or military style, sit-ups, chin ups and pull ups. I guarantee if you do these exercises you will begin to see great results.

To conclude, there are many things you can do to lose weight. I have covered some of the steps that I have taken to change my body and hopefully this article will give you some hints to help you change yours. As I said when I opened up the article, losing weight is very hard, the most important thing is to find your motivation and follow it. I found mine when I looked in the mirror and realized it was time to change my life for good.

Kick Start Your Diet: Learn The Secrets That I Did To Lose Over 50 Pounds

Numerous people are in quest for ways to lose weight at a quick rate. Apparently, infinite formulas have been developed and formulated by experts to help people reduce their body weight. The important thing that needs to be taken into account is that how long this loss of weight is sustained. All the rapid weight loss mechanisms are really crazy in that they make you lose weight temporarily. There are good and natural ways to lose 10 pounds permanently that are not widely known by people.

How to Lose 10 Pounds in a Week

Never Opt for Starvation

Take this as a ground rule. Never starve and think of losing weight. One can never deny the fact that eating less for a period of time can drain out your body weight by quite some margin. At the same time, it is a transient effect and the imbalance that creates to the internal mechanisms of the body is huge. The worst idea that many of the weight loss plan include is the drastic reduction in the food intake which should not be followed at any cost.

Starvation Effects

If you set a goal of losing 10 pounds in a matter of fifteen days, it is a very absurd goal. The hidden fact is that you can achieve this goal quite easily with the starvation plan. But this is not good for health as it can bring out numerous side effects which are as follows. You will feel really tortured in this period when you restrict yourself from eating food that you like. It will be difficult to cross this time period and it will look as a very long duration. The metabolism rate of the body slows down miserably in this time period as you provide the body with lesser food every day. All the other chain reactions related to body metabolism will also get subdued. There is no other way but to get back to normal diet after a lean period as you cannot survive and persist starving. Now comes the big problem where your body metabolism rate has gone done below normal, it cannot churn out the food that you intake which results in drastic increase of your weight with food molecules getting stored in all parts of the body.

Positive Ways

When you take up the above mentioned idea to lose weight, you will have to suffer a period of starvation and then you will be forced to eat well. Again you will have to try starving and this cycle goes on which is really not good for your health. In the mean time, losing just one or one two pounds per week is also tiresome is it not? This article brings up very effective ways to lose 10 pounds in a fairly short period of time.

Drinking Water

Consume water every day and very often. If you wish to know how much water you must take in a day, divide your own body weight by two. Take the body weight in pounds and divide. The resulting value would be the amount of water in ounces that you will have to take up every day. Our body comprises of sixty to seventy percent of water. It is the main source that transports nutrients to all parts of the body and also helps in disposing waste. When enough quantity of water is not consumed, the body makes effort to conserve water within the body. This adds up more weight to the body and the only way to lose 10 pounds from the body by getting rid of water weight is to drink more water and see that it is getting disposed off. You can really feel the difference when you consume more water regularly. If you do not like to take plain water all the time, there is always option to add lemon to it and consume. You can also prefer taking herbal tea which is much better than the regular tea which contains ingredients like caffeine that reduces water from the body.

There are many seasonings available too for making iced tea.

Eat Often

Eat as many as six times in a day to keep your body metabolism rolling all the time. You can also take three main meals along with two snacks each day. If you stay without eating for eight to nine hours, the entire body metabolism collapses and it is no good for you. Never let your body to feel hunger and keep it filled with limited quantities of food. You must take efforts to keep the body metabolism alive.

Reviving Body Metabolism

Do not worry if you have made the mistake of sticking to starvation ideas and your body metabolism has gone down. You can bring it back at a considerably less time by two methods. Those methods are listed below which you will need to follow and keep a watch on all the time to lose 10 pounds.

Breakfast and Late Night Meals

Be sure to abide by the following two rules. One is the breakfast and the other is eating late at nights. The former has to be taken at all cost and the latter has to be avoided. Always keep in mind to have something in the morning within one hour after you wake up. The breakfast that you take in the morning kicks off the body metabolism which is very essential. The next tip is that, you must avoid eating late at night as the food will not be exhausted properly without any physical activity.

Muscle Building to lose 10 pounds

One way of losing 10 pounds in a good manner is to try and build lean muscles in the body with few weight training exercises. Grab a dumbbell straight away and start doing exercises for just two to three times every week. This can really put you in a comfort chair where you need not do any separate physical activity to get rid of excess weight from the body. When muscles in the body increase, the body metabolism will go higher and this comes in handy when you are trying to lose 10 pounds. There is a point to be made here that when you opt for starvation ideas, energy will be generated in the body by the breakdown of cells in the muscle.

This again is a receding process and you will need to start from the scratch to build muscles.

Cardio Exercises

Add a few cardio exercises to your daily routine like walking, running, skipping and jumping. Be cautious; Never overdo these exercises as you need to give some time to the body to recover and build muscles. Limit cardio exercises to just three days a week.

Gain Momentum

Add momentum to what you are doing by exploring easy options to give your body some physical exercises.

You can walk some distance instead of taking your vehicle right at the place of shopping spot. You can use stair cases to climb a few steps instead of using elevators. Gardening is an interesting physical exercise that you can look to do and cleaning your house is not a bad idea either. Dancing is a good option which can work out your muscles and make you lose some calories. Keeping yourself active add more positives to your health and make sure that you are having fun when you are doing these exercises rather than pressurizing yourself.

The Approach

You must adapt yourself to the ideas of weight loss plans. Believe and stick to the plans as much as you can which will definitely bring results. The diet industry has grown so high and is so compulsive that you are inclined towards it with remarkable belief. It is not that you will lose 10 pounds only when you go for those products prescribed by dietitians. You can follow your own food habits and look for a balanced intake of food and with exercises falling in place; you will surely achieve the target.


Having a monotonous diet is not helpful. Body will look to conserve calories in the food that you intake.

Keep varying your diet to a possible extent. This will nicely improve things towards losing 10 pounds. This variation is also applicable for doing exercises. If you stick with same set of exercises all the time, body will adapt and spend lesser calories towards it. Keep changing the type of exercises as well.

Home Cooking and Cravings

Cooking at home and eating it has advantages of cost effectiveness and health improvement. You can shun the artificial flavors, the fried foods and those saturated food materials that are profusely used in foods that are cooked in restaurants. Satisfy your cravings when they are small. If you feel like tasting a piece of candy, go ahead with it. This is much better than allowing your cravings to aggravate which in turn will become more difficult to control.

Do Not Compare

You must not get infatuated with the exaggerated results shown in the media. Every person is unique in his physique and attitude. No two persons can experience the same changes over a given period of time accurately. Never bother about results of others and try to concentrate on your ways to lose 10 pounds.

Be Realistic

Goal setting is the first step and you have to be quite cautious when setting your goal. Think practically and set objectives that you can accomplish quite easily. Running behind impractical goals can only drain down your confidence levels. You must be mentally and physically comfortable to you achieve your target. This is very important as unless this is done properly you will not enjoy your results of losing 10 pounds.

How to Lose 10 Pounds in 2 Weeks

It is not impossible to lose 30 pounds. This article gives you a lot of tips to frame your mind accordingly to bring about a change in your physical and diet habits. Even if you have run out of ideas and ways to do something about losing body weight, hang on to this article. Take a deep breath and start implementing the ideas given in this piece of writing. Believe in these methods as they are logical and feasible to execute.

How to Lose 30 Pounds in 30 Days

How to Lose 30 Pounds in 30 Days to 3 Months


The basic principle on which this article floats is to reduce amount of calorie intake in a safe amount and to drastically increase the amount of calories burnt. Experienced nutritionist and dietitians have played background roles in developing these formulas for losing 30 pounds. All the methods framed are experimented ones with high success rates and are within the safety lines for physical and mental health.

Reasons behind unsuccessful weight loss strategies:

You might have gained excess weight or your ways to lose 30 pounds would not have been effective because the amount of calories that you had consumed would have been equal to or greater than the calories that you exhausted. When this situation is reversed, it is obvious that you are travelling in the path of losing weight effectively from the body. When you are ready to lose 30 pounds from the body, you need to know certain facts. Those facts with apt background reasons and consequences are discussed below for your learning.

Reducing Hunger 

There are good ways in which you can reduce that feeling of hunger even when you decrease your calories.

The first big thing you must have in mind is that you should never persist with the hunger feeling all day long to reduce body weight. In fact, this should not be practiced not even once in a while. This is ridiculously dangerous to the internal metabolism of the body. Survival signals will get activated from the brain which will put you in a critical situation. The most common feeling that you develop when you are hungry is to have cookies or to take snacks in large quantity. This is the first step to ruin your way to lose 30 pounds. This is very common and can happen to anyone with or without self control.


When you feel satisfied with your appetite i.e. when you are devoid of the hunger feeling, you are out of many problems. This is the best way to progress towards losing 30 pounds and sustain your reduced body weight. One needs to be aware about facts like for how much duration the meal lasts in your stomach. From this you can know at what frequency you are getting the hunger feeling. These are some positive steps that you can take to keep your stomach satisfyingly full. Take the right kind of food every time. Look out for low calorie alternatives that are nutrient rich. Identifying foods that are nutrient rich is a very easy task; taking a look at the ingredients table will point you in the right direction.

Having the Shape and Feeling Good

Your confidence levels and the freeness in mind will go a long way in helping you achieve a fit body shape.

This is one of the best feelings you can cheer and boast about. This positive mind frame will keep you moving in the right direction of health. Opting right kind of foods will become a routine when you are in shape and the consciousness to maintain the body shape will not let you get out of control.

Consume Grained Soups

Prefer consuming wet foods when compared to other dry foods. Take your soups by adding grains to it. Take some protein rich foods like lean meat along with it. Soups add an advantage to your goal of losing 30 pounds as they contain lesser amount of fats in them and they provide you with good nutrients. It is a proven fact that those people who have soups in their diet every day have consumed fewer calories in the day.

Evade Desserts

If you do not feel full after completing your meals, take some fresh fruits to lower the hunger. One psychological thing is that, if you do not feel the taste of that fruit, you are not really hungry. Strictly avoid desserts that are rich in calories. This will be a very advantageous move to lose 30 pounds. Do not crave for these items though you can have some occasionally. You must have some self-control as it is very easy to fall prey to this habit. Bad mind sets and ways to relax prompt your brain to go for these foods. Do not fall victim to this and find alternative ways like going for low calorie foods, doing some physical exercises or hanging out doing some cardio exercises.

Shun Dry Foods

When you consume more amounts of dry foods that are rich in fats and you are not able to give up this habit, you can end up with only two results. One is that you will be fat and you will still feel the hunger feeling.

Develop the habit of seeing and evaluating the ingredients table of what you are going to intake. With this, you can easily determine what is good for your health. Even fat free dry foods should be avoided as they will contain more amounts of calories. They come in small packages and are very deceptive indeed containing large quantity of calories. When these are small packages, you tend to eat it and the net result is storage of them in your body adding stray body weight.

Variety kindles Hunger

This is another common scenario that would have happened to us at some point of time or other. When you have had your meals and feel stomach full, you might have come across a colorful candy or a dessert with fruits in various colors. You would have definitely given a try to it without having in mind that you have just completed your meals and that you are feeling full. Juices with added flavors, cool drinks are other sources that you would have consumed after eating to your stomach's full. How often have we seen people eating out of a bag full of potato chips or French fries after their meals? These are very common occurrences that take people away from losing that extra weight from their bodies.

Foods Rich in Water

The foods rich in water can fill out more space in your stomach and this can take you off hunger. Consuming fiber rich foods is also a very good way to lose 30 pounds. Vegetables and fruits are the apt sources that contain both water and fiber contents. Our stomach can get loaded to about two to three pounds of food. It cannot distinct whether calorie rich foods are present or not. Whatever the mass, it can hold up to three pounds maximum. One pound of vegetables can give you about hundred to two hundred calories. One pound of fruit contains about three hundred calories. Potatoes can be added to this list which contains seven hundred calories. These three things can be consumed as they will keep your stomach full, and at the same time will give you fiber, water and nutrients to your body.

Fiber Contents

The fiber contents add mass to the food that you intake and the best part is that they do not contribute towards the calorie count. Fiber contents present in the fruits and vegetables are always accompanied with good nutrients and water. Fiber contents can also ease out bowel movement and help in reducing toxins from the body. Researchers suggest that people who depend mainly on natural foods like fruits and vegetables have lead a healthy life.


Soft drinks are very bad for your health. They do not contain any nutritional value and their calorie content is also very high. The other items that fall under this category are milk shakes and alcohol. These drinks trigger your hunger and make you consume as many calories as possible. Even artificial fruit juices do the same thing to you. It is not effective to consume a glass of orange juice when compared to one single orange. The calories in the juice as such contain double the amount of calories contained in a single orange. At the minimum, even if it is just a hundred calorie addition to your body every single day, it will result in the addition of ten pounds to your body weight in one year. Take fruits rather than depending on drinks and juices.


Taking salad is a very good option. It would be great if you can start your meal with a plate of salad containing fresh fruits and vegetables. This will fill your stomach up nicely, and even without your knowledge, you will be taking in fewer amounts of calories in your diet. Whole grains are the best supplements that can be consumed in addition to salads. Make sure that none of the contents in the salad contain fatty contents in them. Meals that contain components like oils, cheese and meats with fats should be taken off from your sight. These items will cause all the negative effects to your efforts to lose 30 pounds by adding the most complicated molecules to digest.


If you can remember the principle stated in the beginning of the article, we must the exhaust calories that we intake. Exercising is the only possible way to get rid of calories from the body. The most fundamental thing to do is to take some exercises regularly. Just twenty to thirty minutes of exercising every single day is enough to go on a high in losing surplus weight from the body. The entire duration of your exercising, need not be of high intensity. You can alternate it with few easy physical moves to ease your body. All you need to do is to concentrate and strive for calorie burning.

Persist with exercises for a longer period of time. You will start feeling the difference on a good note. When all these are discussed, it is also to be had in mind that you must not overdo exercises. You must give time for the body to cope up with exercises. Give a break of two days in a week to exercises. Keep your meals and diet in a way that will support and complement your exercise habits. It is not going to be of much use if you sweat with exercises and still continue eating high calorie foods. If you dare to do this, you will end up with heart and blood related diseases very soon.

Sense yourself

Taking foods without any need when chatting and munching foods for passing time is not of any good to health. It does not mean that you have to literally wait till you feel the real sense of hunger. But, if you were to allow your stomach to feel the hunger before you start eating, the food you intake burns easily. Experiments have revealed that a person who eats only when he is hungry will take fewer calories in a day when compared to others. The taste of the food can be also be enjoyed when you are really hungry when you eat. Take the right calls on the foods to eat, as it is after all for your own health that you are taking efforts. Losing 30 pounds, hence, is no longer a tough task when all the above mentioned ideas are put into use effectively.

How to Lose 30 Pounds in 30 Days to 3 Months

How To Lose 10 Pounds in 3 Days

According to one of my gym instructors the perfect body is 70% food and only 30% exercise - I know that you should eat three healthy meals a day and everything in moderation but that doesn't work with me because I love to gorge, booze and eat naughty things - sometimes many times throughout the day!

How To Lose 10 Pounds in 3 Days

The best thing is it is not particularly difficult...as far as diets go...and I have done quite a few in my time - the south beach diet, the juice diet, the Dukan, Atkins, starvation, .....the list is endless.

This diet is similar to the military diet but it's not exactly the same.

Diet instructions:

Note - Drink water throughout the day!

First Day:

Black coffee or tea, 1/2 grapefruit, 1 slice of toast with 2 tablespoons of peanut butter

1/2 cup of tuna, 1 slice toast, coffee or tea

2 slices of any type of meat (3 ounces) 1 cup of string beans, 1 cup of beets, 1 small apple, 1 cup of vanilla ice cream

Second Day:

1 egg, 1 slice toast, 1/2 banana, coffee or tea

1 cup cottage cheese, 5 saltine crackers

2 hotdogs, 1 cup broccoli, 1/2 cup carrots, 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream

Third Day:

5 saltine crackers, 1 slice cheddar cheese, 1 small apple, black coffee or tea

1 hard boiled egg, 1 slice toast

1 cup tuna, 1 cup beets, 1 cup cauliflower, 1/2 cantaloupe, 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream

"Diet works on chemical breakdown and is proven. Do not vary or substitute any of the above foods. Salt and pepper may be used, no other seasonings. This diet is to be used 3 days at a time.

In 3 days you will lose 10 pounds, after 3 days of dieting you can eat your normal foods, but do not overeat. After your normal days of eating, start back on your three days. You can lose up to 40 pounds a month if you stick to this diet.

It is a safe diet!!!! Remember do not snack between meals."

How To Lose 10 Pounds in 3 Days

Drop 5 Pounds in a WeekCosmo has come up with a fat-torching plan that really will subtract up to 5 pounds from your bod in seven days without starvation, bizarre supplements, or cutting out entire food groups. How? It's all about small sacrifices combined with specific techniques. And rather than giving you a one-size-fits-all regimen, we figure you're more likely to stick with the plan if you pick the eating and exercise strategies that fit your lifestyle.

So choose at least four of the nutritionist- and fitness expert-backed tips that follow, and vow to work them into your schedule for seven days straight. If you feel ambitious, tack on a few more. The more you pick, the more weight you'll lose. If you start now, by this time next week, you'll look and feel way lighter.

Drink Mainly Water

A sports or energy drink, fruit smoothie, or light beer — each serving contains about 100 calories. Yet these beverages don't satisfy you the way 100 calories of food does, so they're a waste. Other liquids may be high in sodium and carbohydrates, which trick your body into retaining water, puffing you out.

Water, on the other hand, has zero calories and carbs and little to no sodium, making it the perfect slim-down drink. And strangely, it actually helps flush out excess water weight as well as jump-starts your metabolism. If it's just too boring, add lemon wedges or mint leaves.

Ban White Bread and Pasta

Cutting out all white grain products — such as white rice, spaghetti, sandwich rolls — will instantly slim you down because the simple carbs in these foods cause bloating, especially around your belly. "Simple carbohydrates wreak havoc on your weight because they're digested very quickly, leaving you hungry and more likely to overeat later," says Jana Klauer, M.D., author of The Park Avenue Nutritionist's Plan.

To go a step further, instead of replacing them with healthier yet still bloat-triggering whole-grain bread products, substitute vegetables for the week. This way, a chicken sandwich becomes chicken salad, and chips and dip turn into carrots and dip. The complex carbs from vegetables are digested more slowly, so you remain full longer. And because veggies are mostly water, they also help flush out excess water weight.

Do Cardio 30 Minutes a Day

Any workout that gets your heart rate up will burn calories. But you'll use more calories if you pick a cardio routine that engages multiple muscles simultaneously, says Wendy Larkin, personal-training manager at Crunch's Polk Street gym, in San Francisco.

Three to consider: spinning, cardio kickboxing, and boot-camp workouts. Half an hour of each torches 200 to 300 calories while toning up your arms, legs, and core so everything appears sleeker and tighter.

You'll burn even more calories per session if your workout incorporates interval training: alternating short bursts of intense cardio with slower activity. Experts aren't sure why it works, but trainers swear by it.

Drink Coffee an Hour Before Working Out
This is the one exception to the stick-to-water-only rule: Just as a coffee run makes your morning at work more productive, a pre-exercise cup of java with a splash of skim milk (about 11 calories) or black (just 5 calories) will energize your workout, explains Dr. Klauer. "You'll burn more calories without realizing you're pushing yourself harder."

Have Nightly You-on-Top Sex

Not that you needed an excuse to hook up with your guy every night, but the fact is, this position is a fat blaster. Being on top means you do the rocking, and the more active you are, the more calories you burn — up to 144 for 30 minutes.

Sex also pumps levels of feel-good neurotransmitters, endorphins, helping you ride out food cravings. Get on top in reverse-cowgirl (i.e., facing away from your guy) to give your thigh and butt muscles an extra push.

Do 36 Push-Ups and Lunges Every Other Day

These gym-class staples will help sculpt muscle, so you'll sport a more streamlined appearance. Do three sets of 12 of each exercise every other day. "Push-ups target your upper body, while lunges work your butt, hips, and thighs," says Larkin. Quick tip: Make sure your back and legs remain in a straight line during your push-ups; it'll improve muscle tone. Also, you can build even more muscle with the lunges if you hold free weights in each hand while doing them.

Sleep 30 Minutes More a Night

That extra half an hour, whether you sleep 5 hours or 8, can refresh you enough that you will make better food choices (in other words, no quick sugar fix for breakfast in search of energy) and won't feel lethargic and skip the gym, says registered dietician Esther Blum, author of Eat, Drink, and Be Gorgeous. More restful sleep (7 to 8 hours is best) also boosts your metabolism. And since your body builds muscle while you snooze, getting zzz's equals better muscle tone.

Make One Food Sacrifice

Cutting out one indulgence — such as the chips you have with lunch or the chocolate dessert you eat after dinner — can subtract a few hundred calories from your diet, which translates into less flab, says Blum. "Your body won't even notice their absence."

Don't Let the Camera Add Pounds
