Easy Ways to Lose Weight Fast

Looking for some easy ways to lose weight fast?  I'd like to share some of my own tips and tricks to help you lose some weight.

Breakfast

Make sure upon waking before you start your day you eat breakfast.   Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day and not eating it is a sure fire way to cause your metabolism to slow down.  Your body has been fasting for 8 hours and is craving nutrients upon first waking up.

Water

There are many who do not drink the recommended amount of water daily.  One should drink 8 glasses of water a day.  I prefer to drink a lot more than that.  Drinking water helps your body to flush toxins and fats.  Try to keep a water bottle with you at all times and when you feel hungry remember to drink a glass of water.   Many times you will feel hunger but actually are dehydrated.   Drink water before meals and you will eat less!

Meals

Instead of having the normal diet of 3 meals breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Try to spread them out more evenly throughout the day.  Strive for 5 meals daily with healthy snacks in between.  I know this can be hard with our busy lives we live but doing so will help rev up your metabolism.

Vitamins

Take a multivitamin.  Taking a multivitamin can help some with hunger issues.  People that feel hungry all the time may actually have a vitamin deficiency and providing your body with the needed nutrients will help curb your appetite.

Know Your Food Labels

Always read the nutrient label of the food you buy.  Try to avoid foods that have high fructose corn syrup.  Eating foods with high fructose corn syrup will cause blood sugars to spike.  This will give you that added energy but when you crash an hour later it will leave you feeling even more hungry than before.

Substitute Soda and High Sugar Drinks

Again the importance of water is paramount.  Instead of soda, have water with lemon.  You could also substitute with tea.  I recommend green tea as it will help curb your ravenous appetite and speed your metabolism without the jittery effects of coffee. Green tea assists in fat oxidation and its chock full of antioxidants.

Take Notes

Try to keep a notepad or journal and write down what you eat throughout the day.  Keeping good notes will help you lose weight as sometimes people do not realize all the food they are actually eating.

These are a few of the things I do to help maintain and lose weight. I hope it helps you out in your weight loss journey.
