Exercise Questions - What's The Best Way
To Lose Weight Fast?
What's the best way to lose weight fast? Do you also
have motivational tips to build a sexy body?
I highly recommend losing the weight slowly and correctly.
I guarantee the faster you lose it, the faster it will come right back. The last
thing you want to do is crash diet and really mess up your metabolism. Remember,
it didn't take you 3 months to put on all the extra weight, so it definitely will
not take only three months to lose it. The safest total weight loss per week is
1 pound. There is 3,500 calories in a pound of body fat, so in order to lose 1
pound, you simply need to create a 500 calorie deficit per day. Over the course
of a week, this equals out to 3,500 calories or 1 pound.
The best way to
hit this 500 number every day is to create a 250 calorie deficit through your
diet and another 250 calorie deficit through cardio exercise. Remember, you want
to fuel your body with high nutrient foods and keep your metabolism "stoked"
throughout the day. The worst thing you can do is limit your food intake to severely
which will cause your body to go into starvation mode and hold onto your body
fat reserves. Your body is thinking its getting ready for a period of famine and
will hold onto all the energy it can to survive this period. I recommend eating
at least 1,500 calories per day and make sure you're eating "clean"
and nutritious food. You want to make sure to eliminate all the excess and empty
calories from your daily intake. The best way to do this is to write down everything
you eat. You can download our free diet journals here:
I recommend a general "clean" diet to adhere
to. I would focus on lean protein sources (chicken breast, turkey breast, egg
whites) and non-white starchy carbs such as brown rice, whole wheat pasta and
boiled red potatoes.
I recommend starting on a light exercise program after
your medical physical has been completed. You will experience the best results
from a solid cardio program along with a nutritious diet when compared to only
focusing on your diet. To create the 250 calorie deficit for cardio exercise,
