Fast Weight Loss Diets Do They Work Or Are They A Bad Idea?
Posted Oct 16 2012 1:37pm
So you want to go on a fast weight loss diet? Almost all of us have felt this way at some time or another its just the way we assume things have to be done. Maybe it’s some holiday weight you want to work off fast for this years vacation, or maybe you’ve just decided that you would feel and look a lot better with a little less bulk around your tummy or butt. Whatever the reason, losing weight fast diet methods can sometimes be difficult.
It’s often the case that you will find yourself dealing with a very restrictive diet that is difficult to stick to, or other methods that just don’t work for you. You can avoid much of this, however, by making some simple lifestyle changes that incorporate more healthy activities into your daily routine.
Although everyone will likely be tempted to try and lose their 10 pounds or even lose 20 pounds as quickly as possible, unless you feel for some reason that this is absolutely necessary, it’s better to take a longer term approach.
If you want to lose weigh fast, it’s likely that you’re going to have to make a restrictive and drastic diet change that will be hard to implement and even harder to maintain. This also means there’s a good chance you will simply put the weight back on when you fast weight loss diet is over, or when you (inevitably) lapse from it.
A much more effective longer term solution is to make some basic but relatively easy changes to your life style and eating habits. Not only will this be much easier to stick at and a more effective way to lose 10 pounds or so but the weight you lose will have far more chance of staying off.
Commonly people just don’t manage on the very restrictive regimen of a fast weight loss diet and exercise routine. They find it won’t work in their daily routine and end up quitting very easily.
The optimum way to lose 10 pounds or so is to look at combining exercise especially into your day to day routines. This will normally mean getting to work. If you can try biking instead of driving or getting off the subway a couple of stops early and walking the rest of the way.
By biking to work you will not only be getting exercise and working towards your goal of losing 10 pounds, you will be saving money and doing a good thing for the environment. Try and think of other small changes in a similar vein: take the stairs instead of the elevator, go for a walk on your lunch break instead of sitting at your desk. Although these chances may seem small and suspiciously convenient, they will go along way towards losing weight.
It can be fun if you maybe take up a sport or other energetic pursuit you could involve your partner the kids or just get together in the park with a bunch of friends and play soccer or baseball or maybe basketball or volley ball on the beach whatever you and your friends enjoy.
It’s always better to exercise doing activities you enjoy and don’t find a chore like most people (women especially) do with a gym work out. Try joining a group activity such as an aerobics class, swimming, spinning,step class or a whole host of other fun activities. My good friend Tanya loves her salsa class and she keeps in great shape with it.
Lifestyle changes go a long way towards losing weight, and anyone who incorporates some of the changes listed above should find themselves able to lose weight fast diet not needed life style change is.
