The Quickest Ways to Safe Weight Loss

Everyone wants to lose weight, and fast; well, except those who are lucky enough to be blessed with a naturally thin physique. The ultimate weight loss goal would be to lose weight in all the right places, at remarkable speed, and keep the weight off for good. Unfortunately, we are what we eat and what we do, so our bodies are bound to reflect our choice of lifestyle. So if you’re looking for ways to lose weight quickly and in a safe way, here’s what you need to do:
  • Train in intervals: Interval training is the new fad in exercising, and best of all, it’s one that’s here to stay for good. It takes much less time than conventional training, and it is more efficient in helping you lose weight and get fit. It works best on cardio workouts like jogging, swimming and cycling. What you need to do is warm up adequately first, and then exercise at your maximum intensity for a minute or until you can do no more. Slow down until your heart rate is almost back to normal, then run (or swim or cycle) as fast as you can again. Repeat this cycle 7 or 8 times, or as many times as you can, and watch your weight drop really fast.
  • Plan your meals: The trick to eating to lose weight is to never skip breakfast, eat small meals of healthy food that are spaced out throughout the day, avoid foods that contain too much sugar, salt, fat, oil, preservatives and processed flour, and eat dinner at least three hours before you go to sleep. Also, supplement your diet and augment your nutrition with fresh fruits and vegetables and other healthy foods like nuts, seeds and wholegrain dishes.
  • Work out with weights: When you work out with weights and get involved in strength training (squats, lunges, leg lifts), you boost your metabolism and burn calories even when you’re sedentary and for a long time after your workout. Also, your bones become stronger and your muscles look toned and lose their flab.
  • Stay the course: And finally, for really effective weight loss, you must stay the course even after you’ve achieved your target. This is the only way to maintain your weight and prevent adding on extra pounds again. So choose weight loss programs and diet schedules that are easy to stick to, and which you don’t mind doing throughout your life.
