Losing One to Two Pounds Per Week Is the Key
It is not uncommon for fast weight loss plans to promote fast weight loss schemes that involve HCG hormones, minimal caloric intake and/or "miracle foods" such as Acai berries. Such plans are popular with many people who want to fit into a pair of skinny jeans in a week or two; however, they also tend to do more harm than good. It has been scientifically proven that crazy diets slow down your metabolism, making it easy for you to gain back the weight you just lost and then some.
Stable Weight Loss for Lasting Results
If you want to not just lose weight but also keep it off, you will need to build healthy eating habits. A healthy diet includes three stable meals along with nutritious, low-fat snacks that will give you an energy boost and added nutrition. Naturally, you will need to cut back on fattening foods such as whole milk foods, processed foods, sugary foods, fatty meats and refined grains. At the same time, you will not be starving yourself as fattening foods are replaced with low-fat alternatives with high nutritional value; such foods include whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, lean meats and legumes.
If you want to consistently lose at least one pound per week, you will need to burn up to 1,000 more calories than you consume. Monitor your diet, make time every day to engage in a form of exercise that you enjoy and watch as the pounds slowly but surely come off. A realistic, healthy, actionable weight loss plan will leave you feeling healthy and energetic; it will also lower the odds of your gaining weight due to a post diet eating binge or an abnormally slow metabolism.
