It's like the holy grail – sort of tasty but very elusive. Everyone wants to know how to lose weight fast so long as it does not take more than a few days and we will not feel too hungry and we can just pop a few harmless but fat burning pills.
We've all tried it. We all know it does not work. Not so deep down, we understand that how to lose weight fast is a simple but tough love formula of good diet, a regular exercise routine and a strong will to succeed.
You really do have to stick to a fairly simple eating plan that suits your particular body type for maximum gains in minimum time. Luckily once a week or so, you can always splash out on a cheat meal to make your diet more interesting and varied.
Your exercise program needs to be one with the correct blend of cardio fitness and resistance training for your particular body type, whether you be a proportionately balanced mesomorph, pear or apple shaped endomorph or straight up and down ectomorph. You must find an exercise program that you can learn to enjoy, not just to grit your teeth and tolerate.
Knowing this simple formula and given that there is so much excellent weight loss information out there to support it, you'd think there would be more successful doctors than there are.
What's gone wrong?
Why do 95% of diets fail us? More importantly what we do to cut to the chase and get that fast weight loss thing happening, cause there are certainly people out there who manage to move a ton of fat and to keep it off for a healthy, fit and fabulous lifestyle.
We've seen them on TV, we've seen them on the net. We've seen some of them close up and personal. It can be done.
The unvarnished truth about how to lose weight fast.
The most important thing is NOT diet, it's NOT exercise; it's actually a mind thing. The most important ingredient for fast weight loss is MOTIVATION.
Motivation means setting a very personal weight loss goal and reaching for it in small bites that will bring your weight down, not as fast as you fantasize about, but fast enough to make you very, very happy within a few weeks and absolutely ecstatic within a few months. Until you have a goal that means more to you than staying in your present (lack of) diet and exercise habits, you have no basis for change.
However, once you have the reason, you will find the way.
