Get Skinny Quick-Weight Loss and Low Carb Diets

There are many diet fads nowdays. Some believe that a great way to get skinny quick is to go on a low carb diet. However, is this really an effective way to get skinny quick?

The truth is, with all of the conflicting studies and fuzzy interpretation of information, it's no wonder that confusion reigns when it comes to the value and safety of low-carb diets. It seems like heated debates are raging everywhere!

Whether it's Atkins, the South Beach or some other low-carb plan, as many as 30 million Americans are following a low-carb diet.

Advocates contend that the high amount of carbohydrates in our diet has led to increasing problems with obesity, diabetes, and other health problems. Critics, on the other hand, attribute obesity and related health problems to over-consumption of calories from any source, and lack of physical activity. Critics also express concern that the lack of grains, fruits, and vegetables in low-carbohydrate diets may lead to deficiencies of some key nutrients, including fiber, vitamin C, folic acid, and several minerals.

Any diet, weather low or high in carbohydrate, can produce significant weight loss during the initial stages of the diet. Yes, people do get skinny quick. But remember, the key to successful dieting is in being able to lose the weight permanently. Put another way, what does the scale show a year after going off the diet?

Let's see if we can debunk some of the mystery about low-carb diets. Below, is a listing of some relevant points taken from recent studies and scientific literature. Please note there may be insufficient information available to answer all questions.

- Differences Between Low-Carb Diets

There are many popular diets designed to lower carbohydrate consumption. Reducing total carbohydrate in the diet means that protein and fat will represent a proportionately greater amount of the total caloric intake.

Atkins and Protein Power diets restrict carbohydrate to a point where the body becomes ketogenic. Other low-carb diets like the Zone and Life Without Bread are less restrictive. Some, like Sugar Busters claim to eliminate only sugars and foods that elevate blood sugar levels excessively.

- What We Know about Low-Carb Diets

Almost all of the studies to date have been small with a wide variety of research objectives. Carbohydrate, caloric intake, diet duration and participant characteristics varied greatly.
Most of the studies to date have two things in common: None of the studies had participants with a mean age over 53 and none of the controlled studies lasted longer than 90 days.

Information on older adults and long-term results are scarce.
Many diet studies fail to monitor the amount of exercise, and therefore caloric expenditure, while participants are dieting. This helps to explain discrepancies between studies.

The weight loss on low-carb diets is a function of caloric restriction and diet duration, and not with reduced carbohydrate intake. This finding suggests that if you want to lose weight, you should eat fewer calories and do so over a long time period.

Little evidence exists on the long-range safety of low-carb diets. Despite the medical community concerns, no short-term adverse effects have been found on cholesterol, glucose, insulin and blood-pressure levels among participants on the diets. But, adverse effects may not show up because of the short period of the studies. Researchers note that losing weight typically leads to an improvement in these levels anyway, and this may offset an increase caused by a high fat diet. The long range weight change for low-carb and other types of diets is similar.

Most low-carb diets cause ketosis. Some of the potential consequences are nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and confusion. During the initial phase of low-carb dieting some fatigue and constipation may be encountered. Generally, these symptoms dissipate quickly. Ketosis may also give the breath a fruity odor, somewhat like nail-polish remover (acetone).

Low-carb diets do not enable the consumption of more calories than other kinds of diets, as has been often reported. A calorie is a calorie and it doesn't matter weather they come from carbohydrates or fat. Study discrepancies are likely the result of uncontrolled circumstances; i.e. diet participants that cheat on calorie consumption, calories burned during exercise, or any number of other factors. The drop-out rate for strict (i.e. less than 40 grams of CHO/day) low-carb diets is relatively high.

What Should You Do? - There are 3 important points I would like to re-emphasize:

- The long-range success rate for low-carb and other types of diets is similar.

- Despite their popularity, little information exists on the long-term efficacy and safety of low-carbohydrate diets.

- Strict low-carb diets are usually not sustainable as a normal way of eating. Boredom usually overcomes willpower.

It is obvious after reviewing the topic, that more, well-designed and controlled studies are needed. There just isn't a lot of good information available, especially concerning long-range effects. Strict low-carb diets produce ketosis which is an abnormal and potentially stressful metabolic state. Under some circumstances this might cause health related complications.

The diet you choose should be a blueprint for a lifetime of better eating, not just a quick weight loss plan to reach your weight goal. If you can't see yourself eating the prescribed foods longer than a few days or a week, then chances are it's not the right diet. To this end, following a moderately low fat diet with a healthy balance of fat, protein, carbohydrate and other nutrients is beneficial.

If you do decide to follow a low-carb plan, remember that certain dietary fats are associated with reduction of disease. Foods high in unsaturated fats that are free of trans-fatty acids such as olive oil, fish, flaxseeds, and nuts are preferred to fats from animal origins.

Even promoters of the Atkins diet now say people on their plan should limit the amount of red meat and saturated fat they eat. Atkins representatives are telling health professionals that only 20 percent of a dieter's calories should come from saturated fat (i.e. meat, cheese, butter). This change comes as Atkins faces competition from other popular low-carb diets that call for less saturated fat, such as the South Beach diet plan. Low-carb dieting should not be considered as a license to gorge on red meat!

Another alternative to "strict" low-carb dieting would be to give up some of the bad carbohydrate foods but not "throw out the baby with the bath water". In other words, foods high in processed sugar, snacks, and white bread would be avoided, but foods high in complex carbohydrates such as fruit, potatoes and whole grains, retained.

These are important points to consider on your quest to get skinny quick. Make a decision that will work best for you and your lifestyle.

Get Skinny Quick-Exercise and Get Skinny Quick

Want to pop a pill and lose all the excess weight? Yes, that's what advertisers want all those who desire to get slim and lose fat to believe in. Yes, all there is to be done is just pop a pill and lay around without doing any exercise, and then the body will get slim by itself as if some magic just happened. This is not the way to get skinny quick.

But the truth of the matter is, exercise is still the best choice to achieve healthy weight loss. And fast too! You will be able to get skinny quick in no time. Just like everything in life, there is always the smart way to perform exercises as well as there is the stupid way. The former can start the body's fat burning process faster and more efficiently whereas the latter will often end up with less than desirable result.

What makes them different is how the exercises are performed. The secret to fast weight loss is that one has to perform exercises in short bursts.

When exercises have been carried out in short bursts, the body will burn more fat during its recovery period. By repeatedly exercising in this manner, one can teach the body that it needs more energy stored in muscle for fast access. It also teaches the body that storing energy as fat is not efficient because the exercises are never carried out long enough to fully utilize the fat that will only be mobilized during prolonged period of exercises.

Basically, any number of exercises can be done in this fashion. The only rule to observe is that all these exercises are to give the heart and the lungs some good amount of challenge. Cycling and swimming are some of the best choices because they are low-impact and don't incur much risk of sport injury.

It's really a personal preference as to which form of exercise is chosen because it will all depend on one's fitness level. The key is to make sure to advance gradually through time.

Here are some helpful tips on getting started:

1. Perform some light warm up and stretch good enough before starting any exercise program.

2. Start with 20 minutes every other day, which averages to about 10 minutes per day.

3. Start nice and easy and progress gradually. Don't strain too much.

4. Only increase the intensity of each session as endurance improves over time.

5. Break those 20 minutes into even shorter intervals of exercise too if so desired.

6. Apply briefer episodes of gradual intensity increase.

7. Finish every session with light "cool down." This will help to reduce muscle soreness after exercise and during the recovery period.

To sum up, always start with a comfortable level of exertion and progress into increasing the intensity of the activity rather than the duration when performing more advanced exercises. Following these guidelines will help the body lose fat fast! You will be able to achieve your get skinny quick weight loss goals in no time!

Get Skinny Fast-Your Weight Loss Will Explode

For those of us who are looking to get skinny quick, we want simple actions we can use daily and with relative ease.

Discover how this one simple action can help you achieve rapid weight loss. You will be skinny quick before you know it!

Need to Get Skinny Fast? Learn How to Explode Your Weight Loss With Just One Simple Action
By G. Justice

So it's crunch time. Somehow, you've found yourself just three weeks away from going on the vacation of a lifetime and you still need to drop 30 pounds. You need to get skinny and get skinny fast. You've got all the motivation in the world, but you're just not quite sure how to go about it. Well, let's change that. In this article I'll show you one simple step that can explode your weight loss, naturally.

The biggest to key to losing weight rapidly is to learn how to manipulate your metabolism so that it works in your favor. Although metabolism is a complicated process, for our purposes we need to just understand the basics as it relates to fat loss (or gain). Whenever you eat, your body breaks down the food into energy (calories). What the body needs it uses and what it considers to be excess it stores - as fat.

If your goal is to get skinny and lose weight rapidly - one of the best ways to do that is to teach your metabolism to "burn energy" at a higher rate. There are a many ways to accomplish this task, but let's focus in on the one that is easiest to implement immediately so you can get on your way to the body of your dreams.

Portion control and grazing.

Contrary to what you may have been lead to believe, to get skinny fast you don't have to starve. In fact, a starvation diet is exactly the wrong thing you should do. Starving the body of its energy literally will shut down your metabolism - not to mention it's just flat out dangerous. As soon as you start inevitably eating again, any temporary gains you may have made will be immediately wiped out, with interest.

Remember, what we want to accomplish is to teach the body to burn energy at a higher rate. Reducing the portion size at mealtime and adding even smaller healthy snacks between meals will have your metabolism ramped up in no time. A good rule of thumb is to use your fist to measure portion sizes. A meal would be roughly the size of your closed fist and a snack would fit into the palm of your hand.

The types of food that you choose to graze on are important too - to keep it simple, focus on lean meats, whole grains, fruits and vegetables and try to avoid processed foods or foods that are full of empty calories. Here's a tip: When grocery shopping try to do most of your shopping on the edges of the store - that's where most of the natural and whole foods are.

By implementing just this one simple action you will literally explode your weight loss and be well on your way to that vacation, and life, of your dreams.

Get Skinny Quick-Lose 15 Pounds Fast

Are you interesting in getting skinny quick in about 30 days or less? If so, I think you will enjoy this article. I found it over at, thought it was great, and now I am sharing it with you.

This very well could be what you need to get skinny quick in record time!

How to Lose 15 Pounds Fast - 9 Tips to Lose Fat From Your Thighs, Belly and Hips!
By Jim Dalton

Want to lose 15 pounds fast? By changing your eating habits you will be able to lose fat from your belly, thighs and hips and enjoy other benefits, like: increased longevity, less chances of getting cancer or heart disease and lower cholesterol levels.
Here are 9 tips for losing weight in less than 30 days:

  1. Eat more fiber: eating at least 25g of fiber per day will help you consume fewer calories because they make you feel full and less hungry. Examples of high-fiber foods are: broccoli, beans and cereal.
  2. Avoid high Glycemic Index foods, like honey, dried fruits, fruit juices and processed sugar.
  3. Consume more lean protein: foods such as cottage cheese, eggs, fish, turkey, chicken, low fat yogurt and soy products can help you maintain muscle mass and speed up the fat-burning process.
  4. Always eat breakfast: people that don't eat breakfast usually consume more calories throughout the day. Breakfast will help you avoid hunger pangs and will increase your metabolism.
  5. Drink more than 8 glasses of water daily to detoxify your body.
  6. Stop skipping meals: having small meals every few hours will boost your metabolism.
  7. Start small: completely eliminating your favorite food from your diet will only make you feel deprived and sabotage your weight loss efforts. For example, if you really like chocolate, you can continue to enjoy it, but just try to gradually decrease the quantity.
  8. Avoid processed foods, because they increase your sugar levels and make your body store fat.
  9. Stay motivated: find a thinner photo of yourself and post it in place where you can see it every day. This way you will have the incentive to stick to the plan and think about all the rewards you will enjoy after you complete your weight loss program.

Get Skinny Quick-Quick Weight Loss Guide

I hope you enjoyed today's get skinny quick tip!

Today's post covers simple things you can do everyday to help you achieve your get skinny quick weight loss goals. I read over it and see areas where I need to improve! I am sure you will as well!

A Guide To Quick Weight Loss
By Terry Edwards

What every dieter is after would be a way for quick weight loss. Below you'll find the no sweat, quick weight loss tips that put into action, can help you do just that.

If you think that chewing gum is just a habit or something to do when there is nothing else going on, then you will want to think again. Chewing gum for at least fifteen minutes in between meals, specifically lunch and the afternoon snack time lessens calorie intake by 36%. If this is done daily it can really add up.

Another quick weight loss tip is for you to drink green tea. Studies show that Green Tea Extracts actually help in losing body fats so fitness experts recommend that you drink a few cups of green tea every day to aid in losing the fats in your body.

If you think that salad plates are only used for eating salads, guess again. Health and fitness experts agree that the use of small sized salad plates to facilitate eating smaller portions of the meals will help you reduce your calorie intake by 30%. This also relates to drinking liquor from skinny glasses as compared to wide sized glasses to aid in the intake of fewer calories.

Another important weight loss tip is to make it a habit to move for at least two hours daily by doing simple activities such as going up and down the stairs, walking around the house while talking on the phone, etc. and you'll find out that you have burned up to 350 calories per day without needing to really exercise that hard.

Eating half a grapefruit before every meal daily would aid in losing weight, making you lose an average of 3.6 pounds, as well as lower the insulin levels that results to the decrease in fat storage.

Sleeping the required number of hours per night is also one of the quick weight loss tips that many people are not aware of. People should sleep for at least seven hours nightly as studies show that people who only had less than seven hours of sleep gained weight during middle age. This was the result of a 16-year study that should not be dismissed.

Another big tip is to eat more slowly, and that may result in taking away 210 calories as compared to eating too fast. A study showed that women who ate more slowly lost 70% more calories than the women who ate in a quick manner.

And of course, never forget the really important tip of eliminating stress. Having stress is a major factor in weight gain. You can do this by relaxing in a hot bubble bath to lower your stress levels, playing with your pet, and other simple activities that you enjoy and that take your mind off the problems of daily life.

Get Skinny Quick-The Fast Way to Get Skinny Quick

Today's get skinny quick tip covers two simple things you can do to achieve your weight loss goals pretty quickly and effectively. Plus, the good news is they are healthy and safe!

What's the Fastest Way to Get Skinny? - How to Get Skinny Quickly and Easily Without Exercise By Rachel Archer

Are you constantly confused, trying to figure out whats the fastest way to get skinny? It's no surprise that so many women (and men) will try just about anything, when in reality anything that will help you to get skinny quickly is only a quick fix generally and will only have the weight coming right back on. However for those who just want the answer to the question, I'll provide some solutions for you in this article that focus on the fastest way to get weight loss results easily without exercise.

#1 - Natural Diuretics: Now when I say this I don't mean the drug based ones, let me make myself clear. Drug based diuretics are dangerous and can seriously harm or even kill you if used improperly. The type of diurectics I'm speaking of are the natural ones such as uva-ursi and cranberry which will take water right out of your body and make you lean very rapidly. You will need to make sure that you are taking electrolytes to balance out your mineral loss while even using these herbs. Again this is just an easy way to get skinny fast, although it won't last as the water weight will return for the most part once your course of diuretics are finished.

#2 - Cleansing: When a clean diet or hours on the cardio machine just won't cut it then there is always the option of cleansing, which is good for your overall health regardless. Generally a high fiber cleanse for 2 weeks can greatly help as the fastest way to get skinny. There is also the master cleanse, that is quite well known, where you can easily lose 5-15 pounds over the course of it when done properly. In fact the master cleanse might just be the best option for you, as it will also help clear the channels of elimination, so that further weight loss can be experienced even once you complete the cleanse. Although the weight loss you experience is dependent upon how well you perform this cleanse, so just make sure you do some research before jumping into this one.

The best solution in the fastest way to get skinny is one of two things. Either cleansing using the master cleanse or high intensity workouts. Ideally you should do both (not at the same time) for the best weight loss results possible.

Get Skinny Quick-Weight Loss "Must" Strategies

I really liked the article I am going to post today because it describes what myself and other people sometimes go through in our desire to get skinny quick.

I don't need to lose a lot of weight, less than 10 pounds to be exact, but still I go through the same things this author talks about. I am on the right road now and have lost 7 pounds and 6% bodyfat. Still, this was a good read!

Weight Loss Program - Strategies You Cannot Afford to Miss Out If You Want It to Work
By Steven Ng

'll admit it. One of the hardest things I have ever done in my life is trying to lose weight. Not because of lack of motivation or commitment, no, I had PLENTY of that. The problem for me was deciding on the 'how'. It seems as if everywhere you look, there is a new diet out on the market that promises incredible way to help you lose weight and have a perfect body. The before and after weight lose all look fantastic and are enough to sway just about anyone who is desperate to achieve the body they desire. The choices seem endless and all too often, at least for me anyways, I ended up making the wrong choice. So, how does someone know what is the RIGHT weight loss program for them?

The first step in any successful weight loss management is and will always be an exercise program which may include weight strength training. Nothing is a substitute for getting up and getting moving. Check with your doctor, make sure you have no health problems that would prevent you from getting physical, and get to it! Jumping rope, jogging, even brisk walking will start the calories burning and get your program off to a great start. In addition, make sure to add some resistance training to your regimen. For those less experience out there, this means weight lifting. Don't groan, I know what you're thinking, but here are the facts. Muscle burns fat. The more muscle you have, the more fat you will burn. Even while you are sitting down watching TV, your muscles will be burning fat. Now, don't think that just because I am talking about lifting some weights you are going to turn into some bulky bodybuilder. That just doesn't happen. Your physique will become toned, your muscles will start to show, and your clothes will fit better. All the things you want to have happen.

Now, exercise alone may not be all you need. For some of us, quality weight losing programs are what we need in addition to our exercise routines, but back to the original question, how do we know which one to pick?

When choosing a weight loss plan or product, the key thing to keep in mind is, "Is this something that I could do?" Be sure to learn all the parameters of the program or product and ask yourself this question. Try to picture yourself following the guidelines and outlined and be realistic with yourself. Is this something you will really stick to? Does the cost fit into your budget? Are there any special foods or supplements you will need to purchase? Many people begin weight loss program with the best of intentions, but decide later on that they made the wrong choice. Had they done a little more research beforehand, they likely would have had more success.

How to lose weight is an issue for many people all over the world. The health implications alone are certainly a reason to take some action, but it is the results we see as our bodies' change that really motivates us to continue and hopefully, eventually succeed. If you take your time, do your research, commit to an exercise regimen as well as a program or product that is right for you, then you too can join the thousands of people every year who have success with a weight loss program.

The next step is to find a weight loss program that will actually help you lose weight. I've reviewed the Top 5 Best Weight Loss Programs that are the best for helping anyone achieve their weight loss goals. Not only that they also have money-back guarantee if the results are not satisfactory.

Get Skinny Quick-3 Tips to Get Skinny Fast

Are you looking for some pretty easy ways to get skinny quick that you can begin to use in the next minute?

If so, this post is for you!

3 Tips to Get Skinny Fast
By Henry Webb

Getting skinny is a not an easy task. It is harder to lose the weight than to gain it. So if your objective here is to lose weight and get skinny fast, there are a few things that you have to do first.

In this article, let me share with you 3 tips to get skinny fast:

1. Cut down on your alcohol intake. One of the reasons why you have a beer belly is because you drink too much alcoholic drinks. Alcohol slows down your metabolism rate and makes fat burning harder. And for each beer you drink, you are taking in excessive calories which will make you fatter. Therefore, if you want to get skinny fast, the first thing that you need to do is to cut down on your alcohol intake. Do drink lots of water to flush out the toxins and alcohol from your body so as to lose weight successfully.

2. Cut down on your fast food intake. Fast foods like hamburgers, French fries and cola are all filled with excessive calories. So if you are someone who eats a lot of fast foods, you will tend to gain weight very easily. So to get skinny fast, stay away from fast food at all costs. Have a balanced diet and include vegetables and fruits in every meal that you eat. With healthy meals, it will make losing weight much easier. One thing to note is that you should not skip meal or starve yourself. By starving yourself, your metabolism rate will become slower and the next time you eat, your body will store as much as possible in case there is another starvation. Instead of taking 3 big meals per day, eat smaller portions than you normally would, but eat 5 to 6 times a day.

3. Exercise regularly. You should exercise as much as you can. Cardio exercises like jogging, swimming and brisk walking are good exercises to burn fat. So plan out your exercise timetable and develop the discipline to exercise regularly. Although it is very hard to maintain the exercise regime at the beginning, it is something that you should try your best to do it so as to lose weight successfully. Moreover, exercising regularly also makes you healthier. Other than cardio exercises, do not forget about strength trainings. Strength trainings like weight lifting can tone your body, builds muscles and boosts your metabolism rate.

Get Skinny Quick-How to Get Skinny Fast

You don't have to to go on all kinds of crazy diets and kill yourself at a gym to get skinny quick.

Today's get skinny quick post covers two quick tips for you to use today to achieve your get skinny quick goals!

How to Get Skinny Fast!
By Jennifer Jolan

Here's how to get skinny fast. Maybe you're struggling to lose weight. Maybe you don't have much money to spend on supplements or going to the gym. Well, THAT'S OK. You don't need supplements or the gym to get great weight loss results. I'm going to share with you how to do this without leaving your home.

How to Get Skinny Fast

1. Do fast bodyweight squats

These are a killer workout that gets quick fat loss results. But you need to do these properly. First, make sure your back is NOT arched over when you do your squats. Next, touch the ground with your fingers during each repetition. Why do this? This insures you are going down deep enough in your squats. Don't cheat the movement. You just hurt your own efforts.

Now, I recommend that you do 25 bodyweight squats as fast as you can. Rest 45 seconds and repeat. Do a total of 3 sets of 25 reps.

That's it. It's simple, but it's not easy. This creates a nice oxygen deficit within your body. This oxygen deficit puts the body into a fat burning state. The body burns fat a lot faster.

2. Eat protein with each meal

Here's the deal with protein. Eat about 20 grams of it at every meal and you speed up your metabolism and slow down any type of blood sugar spikes due to simple carbs. It's a great 1-2 combo. Plus protein naturally suppresses your appetite so you'll eat less at any meal that has protein in it.

These are 2 really good quick tips on how to get skinny fast... use them!

If you're SICK and TIRED of getting the same old boring weight loss advice... you know, like "Eat more fruits and vegetables, drink 8 glasses of water, jog, and Blah Blah Blah", then...

Click to get your FREE EBOOK "How SPINNING Around Like a Child TRIPLES your Weight Loss". A strange, but true, way to LOSE 10 Pounds in 2 Weeks. I'm giving away this ebook today and tomorrow ONLY to anyone who visits my website! So get it before tomorrow night.

Get Skinny Quick-5 Tips To Halt Weight Gain

The average person puts on between five and ten pounds a year. Ugggg. That's not good when we are looking to get skinny quick! And let's face it, dieting stinks. Here are five tips to help you keep the weight off. If you don't think you are in the right frame of mind to implement all five right away then pick one today, right now, and just get started. No matter how you go about your weight loss journey, you have to remember to HAVE FUN or you will just continue to pile on the pounds.

1. Attitude IS Everything

If you went into last year's holiday season thinking you could eat like a wolverine and worry about it in January, well, how's that working out? Swimsuit season is right around the corner. It is now time to get your mind right and realize you’re not as young as you used to be, it's going to take effort to get the weight off and you need to put down the cheesecake and go for a walk.

2. Eat exactly what you need

You should aim for a comfortable feeling of satisfaction at every meal. You will be amazed at how quickly this becomes acceptable to your stomach. Besides, you can enjoy your meal and feel great afterwards too. This tip alone can save you hundreds of calories per meal. If you want to try all the courses, have smaller portions of everything you really want.

3. MOVE!

Give up the couch this summer and get out the spandex. If you really can't get to the gym, do a few exercises at home or go for a walk. It won't just burn calories; it will keep you in touch with your desire to get skinny and healthy. Also keep as active during the day as you can. You know the routine; use the steps, park farther away. No matter what you chose remember that a journey of thousand miles begins with the first step!

4. Trash Day

You just had to buy the Doublestuff Oreos because you had a coupon right? Time to clean out the cabinets. This is the single best tip you can put into place today. Why? Let's say you are watching reruns and you get the craving to eat the entire pint of Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia, if you don't have it in the house then you are less likely to get in the car and go get it.

5. Relax!

Stress makes us do crazy things to our bodies like smoking, drinking, and oh yes, eating. You have many reasons to reduce your stress levels as you do drinking your thousand-calorie Starbucks Frap.

If this describes your pattern of eating you are not alone. This is the single highest response given when asked why people eat the way they do, the nervous eater. If you can recognize it and at least alter the foods you are taking in, you can save yourself thousands of calories a week. So, no matter what you chose, just get out there and do it! If you do, you will get skinny quick!

Get Skinny QUick-5 Step Roadmap to Weight Loss

For those of us who are looking to get skinny quick and lose those last few stubborn pounds, sometimes a roadmap would be very beneficial!

In today's get skinny quick tip, you will get a 5 step roadmap to achieve your weight loss foals.

If you happen to be among the millions of people who are weight impaired, you may have already considered, or even tried many alternatives for losing weight...and you may still be seeking that one magic "remedy"...

Sadly, there are no magic remedies, diet pills, or supplements for losing weight. It takes desire, persistence and lots of accurate information seasoned with ample amounts of supportive and caring guidance, to succeed.

Through the trials and tribulations of many failed weight loss plans we now know that if you try to manage your weight by making radical changes in your diet and lifestyle, you will eventually fail...around 95% of the time!

For a diet plan to be successful it must fit within the boundaries of normal day-to-day habits and activities. It must allow for the consumption of familiar foods in familiar and traditional social settings. The exclusion of "taboo" foods or your favorite fast food restaurant is generally a set-up for eventual dieting failure.

When you stop to think about, isn't it usually the things you are told that you can't do or have, that you desire the most? It's a part of human nature. We want what we can't have! Take it away from us, and surely this is exactly what we will want and crave the most...and this includes the foods we eat. Even the most highly regarded sources of information agree that we tend to focus on what we can't have (see what the Bible has to say about it; Romans 7:14-15).

So, a good plan for losing weight should not try to radically change your eating behavior. The plan should adapt to your daily activities and eating behavior. And of course any good plan should incorporate the benefits of good nutrition, convenience and practicality.

The bottom line is that we are all very busy people without a lot of time to spare. We're not about to turn our busy lifestyle upside down to follow some restrictive plan for losing weight. Oh...maybe something like this will work for a short period of time, but the facts don't lie. Short term loss is long term gain (in weight that is!). Although the "crash" weight loss diets may work for a short while, most of us will find that before long the pounds begin to creep back on...and there is good reason for this.

- We’re not going give-up eating at fast food and sit-down restaurants when we need a quick meal.

- We're not going to give-up eating with business associates, good friends and family or any other special meal occasions where dieting guidelines are difficult (or impossible) to follow.

- We're not going to completely eliminate the foods we love and crave.

- And we're most definitely not going to waste precious time preparing special dietary meals from "scratch" every day!

It's important to know that you don't have to stop doing any of the above to lose weight.

You can look and feel like a million bucks, take years off your appearance and have the energy and vitality to accomplish your dreams, by following a few simple guidelines. Here they are...

1) Take it one step at a time.

Some of the greatest accomplishments in life begin by taking one small step at a time. When we are challenged to think deeply, encouraged by others to succeed, and ultimately inspired to take action, great things start to happen!

If you have important weight loss goals you are not achieving, try to spend less time worrying about all the possible
"causes" and start concentrating on how you can make progress.

This is one of the keys to moving forward and a simple, but powerful tool for success.

Step #2 – Assess your dietary needs and lifestyle.

Awareness is the key!

Learn about your specific dietary needs (caloric intake) and daily energy requirements. We're talking a basic understanding here, and not having to go into any great detail.

Step #3 - Seek advice from friends and trusted authorities.

Don't believe everything you hear! There are thousands of diet "scams" on the market. When you find a trusted source, ask as many questions as you can about diet and exercise. Find out what has worked for others. But always be on-guard for "quick fix" won't work!

Step #4 – Start creating a SYSTEM of support.

About 85% of our "happiness" and well-being is determined by the quality of our relationships with other people. Loving, caring relationships and a network of friends, family, and colleagues lowers stress, increases longevity and helps us to accomplish our goals in life (including losing weight).

We are social creatures and we do our best when we have friends to cheer us on, offer support, give advice and hold us accountable when necessary. This makes it easy for us to succeed. So, surround yourself with people, tools and activities that make it easier to succeed than to fail! Arrange your living environment and social situations so that every thing around you pulls your forward!

Step #5 – Use your resources.

Read motivational tips, general health information and any other literature you can get your hands-on. Information is power!


There you have it. So, get started today on "your" Road to Success!

Get Skinny Quick-Lose Weight The Healthy Way

Do you remember the days of being able to eat whatever you wanted, whenever you wanted, without seeing any change in what the scale was reporting? You know, those days when getting skinny quick just happened naturally? Weren't those the days! So what happened? As time passes, digestive systems take a real beating and many find themselves starting to pack on extra pounds. The good news is, it does not have to stay that way.

Studies have reported that as early as the age of three the stomachs of many children are already in a state of shock from what they are forced to process. While it usually takes a few years for symptoms to appear, the assault started long before.

Besides the affect of unhealthy food choices and chemical ingestion, the stomach and digestive system as a whole is hard-hit from the impact of life's daily stress. Since our body systems are intertwined, a blow in one area ripples into the others.

As the digestive system becomes impaired in its ability to process all that is sent its way, toxins start to build up in the body. As a survival mechanism the body then starts to gain mass to reduce the percentage of total body toxicity, storing the toxins in the fat cells. This then tends to push people to start dieting, which for many is the beginning of a frustrating loop of weight loss and weight gain - determination and disappointment.

The body really does not care how much it weighs. It is most concerned with how its systems are functioning and will spend its energy coming to the aid of any system working at a sub-optimum level. Since fat loss requires so much energy, there is none available for it if some system is out of order.

So, the key to permanent weight loss is to get to the root of the problem, which for many is going to be getting their stomach out of the state of shock and back to operating at its full potential. While this can take some time, many will see results quickly when they start to provide their bodies with premium fuel: whole foods with live enzymes that the body can easily and readily assimilate for its essential processes.

To adequately provide your body with good nutrition, the whole foods should include a variety of colors and should incorporate different tastes such as bitter, sweet, sour, salty, astringent (cranberries and tea) and pungent (hot, spicy).

Once the body nourishes its systems back to health, it will then have the energy to focus on weight loss. As you nourish your body with nutrient-packed food, it will at some point turn its attention to the removal of the toxins that are stored in the fat. As those toxins are released, the body will shed the fat and you will effortlessly return to your natural healthy weight.

Do not beat yourself up if you have tried dieting and have been unsuccessful; instead turn your attention to finding ways to nourish your body with superior nutrition, then watch what your body will do for you. You will achieve your goal to get skinny quick!

Get Skinny Quick Really Fast

If you are looking to get skinny quick, you want it to happen real quick right?

If so, you will love these two easy ways to get down to the size you want in record time!

How to Get Skinny Really Fast - 2 Astonishingly Easy Ways to Burn Fat Very Quickly

By Tina Bardo

Who else wants to get skinny really fast? If you are anything like many of the people reading this right now, the simple truth is that you do, right? It's true, for many of us, losing weight is not only important, losing it very quickly is often equally as imperative. And as we move closer to Spring, the desire to get a super skinny, hot, toned and ultra sexy beach body is on everyone's mind!

With this in mind, we've identified about 10 or 11 super fast tips and tricks for burning buckets of stubborn fat really quickly, and we're going to share two of them with you below. Read on.

Tip #1: 7 Day Organic Fruit Feast

Yes, this is not only one of my favorite ways to burn off a belly quickly, it's actually super healthy as well! Did you know that juice fasting (or "feasting" as many people call it) is one of the best ways to remove built up toxins, contaminants and other stubborn "gunk" from your body? It is - and before you write it off as just another new age, hippie approach to fat loss, think again! There is wealth of scientific data supporting fasting using organic fruit and vegetable juices, and the health benefits extend FAR beyond simply losing weight!

Tip #2: Believe in the Berry!

Did you know that acai berry has become one of the most popular underground "super foods to the stars" over the last 12 months? It's true...and celebrities from Oprah, to Rachael Ray, to superstar athletes from all major sports have acknowledges believing in the berry to facilitate super fast fat loss, better digestive health, a cleaner colon and an AMAZING influx of energy to boot! While there is an incredible amount of hype out there about Acai, the simple truth is that it is truly one of the most heart healthy, anti oxidant rich and belly busting natural foods anywhere in the world, and if you are serious about looking great in that bikini this summer, an acai berry diet is one super fast way to make sure you do!

Bonus Tip: Beware of the Acai Berry Scams! Unfortunately, many of the acai berry products on the market are scams, being sold by unscrupulous companies with one hand in your pocket, rather than out to help you heal. My best advice? If you really want to experience the amazing benefits of the berry, make sure you ONLY buy authentic acai berry juice or extract.

(This is the one that we use, and recommend to our family, friends and readers alike)

Good luck, and happy healing!

Get Skinny Quick-5 Tips to Get A Skinny Physique

The goal of us who desire to get skinny quick is to also have a rocking skinny physique, especially with summer approaching.

Today, you gonna discover 5 ways to get skinny quick and to have a physique that others will admire!

Ways of Getting Skinny Fast - 5 Healthy Tips on How to Achieve a Thin Physique Quickly!
By Manuel McDaniels

Everyone dreams of having a thin physique especially when summer draws near and the beaches lure people who want to swim, tan or simply have fun! What are the ways of getting skinny quickly? How do you achieve this plan? Are there any healthy tips? Read and find out.

1. If you really want to achieve that thin physique, then we can start by summoning enough motivation to change. Set goals, expectations and an achievable time frame. Try to think in terms of goals and action plans. Many people are initially motivated in getting skinny fast, but lose the motivation after some time. Commitment is another key.

2. Change your eating habits. Eat healthy foods in small portions throughout the day. Never skip a meal! This very bad habit only wreaks havoc on your metabolism. You are completely mistaken if you think you can get thin quickly if you miss a meal. Try to replace a meal with a protein shake instead.

3. Sleep eight hours a day. Studies show that adequate sleep is essential in losing weight. People who lack sleep compensate by eating to feel energized and thus, they end up gaining weight.

4. Keep nicotine off your system and lessen on caffeine intake. By keeping a healthy lifestyle, achieving a skinny physique is possible.

5. Lastly, load up on water. Our body is made up of 80% water, and brings nutrients to different parts of the body. It is also good to drink water if we feel an initial pang of hunger because our body may only be signifying that we are thirsty. If we do this, then we do not end up eating too much.

Now you want to have more energy, be Healthier, look Younger, lose weight, and cleanse your body, right?

Do this with Oprah's Dynamic Duo of Acai Berry & Colon Cleanse by Clicking Here Now!

Acai Berry is the #1 "Super Food" because it has so many different elements that help your body, so you can't go wrong with Acai Berries & Colon Cleansing.

Get Skinny Quick-Body Fat Testing and Weight Loss

Did you know that testing your body fat is a crucial component to achieve your get skinny quick weight loss goal? It's really true.

One of the most overlooked aspects of any diet and fitness program is getting proper body fat testing assessments. This goes far beyond just looking at a weight scale and checking out how much you weigh. You want to know that all that weight you lost is from fat and taking the time to get regular body fat tests done will definitely help you make faster progress towards you goal.

If you're on a weight loss program and have dropped some pounds, how do you know that the loss is from losing fat. The three main components of weight changes come from water, muscle and fat. So which one, or combination of the three, caused the weight loss. If you have regular body fat tests done, then you would know what kind of weight was lost.

Here is a key point. If you want to be successful in your weight management or fitness goals, then do what successful fitness people do. All the successful dieters and fitness pro's will take measurements, track their results and adjust it accordingly to keep progressing towards their personal goal. If the results of a test show that a total of 15 pounds of body weight was lost, a few calculations will break down what component (water, muscle, or fat) had the majority of the weight change.

Here is an example to clarify how body fat testing and your weight loss goal goes hand in hand.

It's the first week of your diet and fitness program and you want to make sure that you start it correctly. The local fitness center does physical assessments and body fat testing, so off to the gym you go to get checked and see where your levels are at. Six weeks later committing to a good diet and fitness program has resulted in a 15 pound weight loss. Now it's time for another assessment to see the hard facts on how you're progressing.

The results of the assessment will show how much of that 15 pounds was fat. Generally, if only 1 to 4 pounds of weight loss is water and muscle but the rest was fat, then the diet and fitness program is a success and you should continue on the program you're on. If only 5 pounds of weight from the 15 is fat according to the body fat test, then there is a problem with the diet or fitness program you're on. It would be wise to make some changes as this perhaps indicates that some dehydration or muscle wasting may be occurring. Continuing with the same program may cause a problem with your health if followed too long. In this case, a change in your program and another assessment 4 to 6 weeks later will determine if the new program is getting better results in fat loss instead of water or muscle loss.

If you are truly committed to lose fat and achieve good health and fitness, then you need to distinguish between just overall weight loss and true fat loss. As you continue your weight loss program, each body fat test gives you the chance to make small changes in diet or exercise routines to see if the next assessment produces better results. Not only does this get you closer to what the ideal program is for you, but it also helps keep you focused on staying with the program and not give up or quit. You will stay motivated by trying to better the last assessment.

Now that we see the importance of body fat testing, your first step is to decide if you want a professional assessment person to test you, or if you want to learn to do it yourself. There are advantages and disadvantages to each decision.

A professional body fat tester can usually be found in most fitness centers and gyms. They have the experience, knowledge and tools to make accurate tests and can suggest a course of action to improve the results of the next test. It takes on the average of about 15 to 30 minutes to complete and you will get a copy of the test to keep. The cost can range between twenty to fifty dollars per test and should be done every 4 to 6 weeks. Some disadvantages are the costs to having it done, searching out a qualified assessment professional and perhaps the slight embarrassment you may feel to have test done.

If you decide to do the test yourself, you will need to learn how to take proper body fat measurements, purchase the tools or equipment for accurate assessments and keep testing many times in order to learn how to do it correctly. An advantage to do your own test is that you can have the privacy and convenience of testing as many times and often as you want in your own home.

Most people will want someone else to do it because of the learning curve involved to take accurate assessments. Another valid reason is to have the option of some suggestions by the professional on what you can do tweak your current program and make solid improvements for the next test.

Now that you know the importance of body fat testing, you should do a little research and get more details on how to incorporate it into your program. This just may be the key ingredient for you to make real progress towards your weight loss and fitness goal.

Get Skinny Quick-Food and Weight Loss

I have to admit I am one who likes my cakes and cookies. However, I also know that I just can't all I want to my heart's content and achieve my goal to get skinny quick.

So, it is very true that we have to very careful what we eat if we want to get skinny quick.

Most have heard the saying "you are what you eat." No, you will not become a chicken if you eat fried chicken, but rather it basically means that certain foods can be hard on your digestive tract and figure. Foods like pizza, cheeseburgers or potatoes covered in melted cheese, butter and sour cream may taste delicious but will do nothing for your body. You can enjoy your meals while also avoiding putting on extra weight. Some foods can, actually, help you lose weight and also feel better about yourself in general.

Combine these foods with healthy portions of nutritional food choices such as leafy green vegetables, or healthier carbohydrates such as whole grain bread or rice, preferably red or brown. Protein is an essential nutritional component, but you should aim for meats and fish that are leaner in fat. You can combine some lean meats with other food choices to help your body burn fat, basically acting as a thermal agent.

When you stat to look at the healthier food choices that help with weight loss, you will soon begin to notice the excess weight gradually come off. It is important to lose weight in a healthy way and choosing a diet that includes nutritional choices, like those above, can help you do just that.

It is very helpful to start learning about foods that promote weight loss. Not only do you want to learn which foods to choose, but also how to combine these foods to satisfy your appetite while not adding on the pounds. Some of the best ways to begin learning about these foods is to look in diet and cooking books or magazines for tasteful combinations, or search the Internet where you will find a lot of useful information to help guide you toward nutritional food choices.

You will find that well-known foods such as chives, cinnamon, strawberries, blueberries, apples, berries and cayenne pepper, among other foods can help individuals lose weight. Frog legs and lobster is one more uncommon foods promoted as a good selection for weight loss.

Of course, you cannot add on butter or calorie-dense dressings, but besides that lobster is indeed one of the more positive food choices. Lobster is known to help the body burn some of the fats that have accumulated over time.

Generally, you will find that foods specified as helping with weight loss can range from the expected, predictable choices to the more uncommon foods to include such specialties as lobster. By choosing these foods, you can begin your way to effective, healthy weight loss that is more likely to be a permanent change.

The bottom line here is to eat right and you will get skinny quick!
