When you are in the mindset of losing weight fast, you need to take charge of your diet. You have to watch all the foods that you consume. Although this involves little of your time, nevertheless, do it right and you will get much healthier with all the healthy foods that you consume.
Changing your diet to organic is probably one of the best ways to alter your diet. When you change to an organic diet, you’ll tend to increase fibre in your food. Fibre is good as they will cleanse your colon of all the bad weight loss inhibitors.
You should be choosing whole grain food group i.e. whole wheat bread, brown rice and etc… and reduce your intake of processed food which tends to have more fat. The whole wheat food is also good as it is healthier and have less trans fat and cholesterol.
You should also consider increasing your intake of protein, vitamins and minerals.

After you changed your diet, you will notice some changes in yourself. You’ll fee more energetic, have more energy and feel more fresh. Initially you may feel a bit uncomfortable with this change in your diet. However, as your body continue to adjust to this new diet, in more time, even without you realizing it, you will get used to it. It has now become your habit.
To help you keep fit, you need to have the right combination between exercise and diet. If you exercise and don’t watch your diet, then you’ll not make much progress in losing weight.
On the other hand, you diet but don’t exercise. This also will not be effective in losing weight fast as you are not burning any calories which is essential in burning fat.
It has been generally viewed that the less calories that you consumed, the more weight you will lose. In fact, if your caloric output is far more than your calorie intakes, then you will be losing weight fast. This is what most of us will think. But is the true? In reality, this is not.
It is not a good idea if you cut your calories intake drastically. If you do your research around, you’ll notice that the so called “extremely low-calorie diets” is not something new.
They have been in existence for long. However, it is noted that all these diets do not lead to long-term weight loss.
People who engage in dieting normally will not have permanent weight loss. Also, engaging in extremely low-calorie diets will endanger your health. Don’t this risk, it is simply not worth it.
According to research, if you cut your calories intake to 1,000 per day or even lower that that, you will fail in your weight loss effort. Why?
When you reduce your caloric intake, what happens to your body is it will suddenly turn on the ‘starvation mode” which will not happen if you consume your normal food. The “starvation mode” will only happen, when people are left without food during famine or natural disaster.
When this happens, for survival purpose and to maintain the body weight, the body will cut down metabolism rate. It will also start to store the calories to the body’s fat cells. So, instead of losing weight, you are accumulating fat which is definitely not what you desire.
To prevent your body from into falling into the “starvation mode,” you need to understand the number of calories that is required by your body to maintain itself. If you are unsure of the minimum of calories required by your body, please consult your dietician or nutritionist.
The “extremely-low-calorie diets” will tend to fail as people can’t stay focus on it for long.
If you have been restricting yourself to certain diet, you’ll know that won’t last for long. In fact, it may get worse as you tend to overeat after dieting and put on more weight than you previously lost. Dieters who engage in this kind of diet may also experience some side-effects – feel weak, have constant headache and unable to concentrate.
Think twice if you plan to go back to dieting after failure for the first time. This is because if you go back to dieting, the fat cells in your body will tend to store more calories. Having gone through the first “starvation mode,” you body had adjusted itself to this mode and when it happens again, it will move quickly to store the calories to the body’s cell.
The speed of this happening will be faster than the previous one as your body have learned from the first experience.
When this happened, your metabolism will start to drop and you will be hit with a bottleneck to lose weight. Then you’ll wonder what happen, as you are not seeing any progress to shed those pounds? One thing lead to another – Feeling frustrated after dieting for so long and depriving yourself of some favourite food, you go back to your normal diet. When that happens, you start to gain weight.
Losing weight fast does not mean you have to diet. You need to have an effective program which combines exercise with the right diet.
