The answer to the question how to lose weight fast safely is one which eludes many of us. In particular, as we get older it becomes more and more difficult to maintain our body weight and shape, and increasingly we find ourselves losing the battle with our decreasing metabolism. The results can be significant, and at times even to our own eyes, unsightly.
It's easy enough to make the decision to do something pro-active. We affirm our intent to diet and lose weight fast. We embark on fad diets, count calories, measure carb intake, undertake what all too often is sporadic exercise, and some of us even resort to starving ourselves. We're not alone.
But how often does good intent allow us to achieve our lofty goals of rapid weight loss? In most cases, rarely. . . and we achieve little more than some short term pain and discomfort for no real long term gain.
So what lies behind our apparent inability to make these methods work? For one thing, there are a lot of myths about weight loss which provide more misdirection than assistance. It's the little half truths which can ultimately do more damage than good.
Examples? The suggestion that eating low fat foods, low calorie plans (starving or fasting) or low carb plans guarantees to make us lose weight might take us a few steps along the misguided path. Professional weight loss plans are always an option, if we have the time and the money. . . but if we can afford that, why not just get a personal trainer? We could exercise of course. There's nothing mythical about good hard exercise. . . but if we could do that we already would be, wouldn't we?
So what's the solution if we want to know how to diet and lose weight fast and keep it that way?
There is an increasingly popular school of thought that advocates healthy living and fast weight loss not by extreme tactics, but by something else entirely. It's something of a paradigm shift from conventional measures, but to someone who doesn't have a heap to spend on expert help, doesn't have time to spend hours in the gym, who refuses to take pills and who likes to eat. . . it has a certain appeal!
It operates on the basis that most people gain weight in part, if not substantially, not just because we eat the wrong foods, but because we don't eat the right foods at the right time each day. It works on the basis not of starving our bodies of the nutrients we require, but of providing the right type of nutrients at the right times to train our bodies to process food efficiently and need less of it.
Think of our body as a machine. If we feed the machine three large portions of fuel per day, our bodies come to expect this level of input and will adjust itself to digest at least that amount of fuel accordingly. But what if three loadings of fuel isn't the most efficient way to run the engine? What if the engine could go a lot faster, and further, but on a different type of fuel. . . and less of it??
Training (or tricking) our bodies to immediately and consistently demand less fuel whilst still undertaking the same amount of day to day exertion is heralded as a key way to rapidly shed body weight and maintain that loss. It's rapid, it's safe, and it's letting our bodies do what they do best. The prospect of training our way to a healthier, thinner physique in no time at all is an exciting proposition to answer the question. . . how to lose weight fast safely.
