Lose Weight Really Fast-The Perils of Crash Diets

James Hetfield.Image via Wikipedia
There are many diets and weight loss products on the market today for those of us who desire to lose weight.

Unfortunately, those who have the "I want to be thin now" mindset many times may fall for the numerous crash diets out there. They don't realize these diets can make them more fat in the long term!

How can this be? It is because those diets which call for people to consume fewer than 1200 calories a day cause them to lose muscle tissue AND fat. What also will happen is the body fat percentage will actually increase, the opposite of what most dieters want to happen.

Other health perils include increasing chances of heart disease. It sounds strange, but it is true. This happens because the blood cholesterol levels increase when weight loss happens too quick. This also results in gaining weight back quickly after the initial loss.

 Even more concernful is that losing weight too quickly accelerates the rate at which cholesterol goes to the blood cells.

Lastly, crash diets are bad for your overall health because they can make dieters more susceptible to infections.

The bottom line is this: if you need weight loss help and the right diet information, always talk to your doctor first as well as an expert in nutrition and fitness. These guys will get you started off on the right track!

To Your Success,

Monique Hawkins

4. Celery Sticks and Almond Butter. This is a fantasticcombination of protein, monounsaturated fat and energy.

Lose Weight Really Fast-Jeannie's Story

Turkish cacık, made with yoghurt and cucumberImage via Wikipedia
I recently heard from one of Weight Loss Secrets for Life ezine subscriber's named Jeannie Chai. She shared how she has lost 9 pounds in a month and a half!

I am so happy for her! Jeannie says this:

"So far I have developed my own little meal plan and exercise plan.

For breakfast, I eat yogurt, for lunch, I  eat what I want to, but not fat food, something like lean meat, sandwich etc. And for dinner, I eat salad with some chicken meat or salmon.
As for my exercise plan, I exercise for 30 minutes each day either on my cardio workout machine or the stepper (stepper is recommended for lazy people).

The stepper I'm using is really interesting, it was a handle which you can hold onto, and you should move your hands while exercising too. (double workout!)
Jeannie Chai from Hong Kong
Now guys, this is very simple what Jeannie did. If she can do this, you can too!
Keep motivated and those pounds will come off! Keep up the good work Jeannie!

However, recent research has shown how important nutrient considerations should be taken since they also help regulate your hunger naturally.

Slimming Supplement #2: Probiotics. Canadian researchers found that those tho took a probiotic supplement reported a weight loss average of 2 pounds a week compared to those on a placebo. Target for 4 to 20 mg a day from garlic, onions, artichokes, fortified yogurt, or supplements.

Slimming Supplement #3: Calcium. In another research study, women who were deficient in calcium and who took 1,200 mg a day for 15 weeks lost up to 4 times as much weight as those who did not and took a placebo. Calcium can be gained from foods such as low fat dairy and leafy green vegetables. In addition, 500 or 600 mg of a calcium carbonate or citrate supplement can be taken two times a day.

Slimming Supplement #4: Multi-Vitamin. In another 15 week study, women who took a multi-vitamin every day felt up to 45% less hunger than those tho took a placebo.Add to your your diet plenty of colorful fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins, You can also take a good multi-vitamin supplement with no more than 100% of the daily value of nutrients needed.

Lose Weight Really Fast-Lose One Pound A Week the Healthy Way

Marine of the United States Marine Corps runs ...Image via Wikipedia
Many of us desire to lose weight really fast. And yes, we can drop weight just by dieting. However, recent research has discovered that if people fail to exercise as well, they could be missing out on many health benefits.

In a study published in the "Medicine and Science in Sports & Exercise", one group of ladies worked out five days a week and reduced their caloric intake while the others just reduced calories.

Says Enette Larson-Meyer, PH.D the study's lead author, "Everyone lost about 10 percent of their body weight over 6 months. But those who exercised also saw improvements in their cholesterol and blood pressure levels." Plus, they increase their life expectancy by 19%!

To lose weight plus improve your health, shoot to burn 250 calories a day at the gym and cut the same amount from your daily calories.
