How to Get Really Fit and Lose Weight Fast... in a Nutshell

Want to get fit fast? Interested in losing 10, 20, or even 30 pounds quickly? The fact of the matter is that most people can lose weight and get fit within a relatively short period of time -- often just a few weeks -- if they focus their energy and take steps to make consistent daily progress.

Here are the simple steps to getting really fit fast (in a nutshell):

1. Get ultra-motivated and focused on consistently doing what it takes to get fit and lose weight quickly.

2. Eat a diet based around lean meats, fish and seafood, eggs, vegetables and raw fruits, nuts and seeds, beans and legumes, few starches, and no processed/refined sugars, flours, or fats. Learn how to cycle your intake of starchy carbs (rice, potatoes, grain products, etc.) for best results. Have an occasional "cheat" day (every 2 weeks or so) to give yourself a break/reward.

3. Do short, intense full-body strength training workouts along with high-intensity interval training (HIIT) cardio exercise. Focus on compound, multi-joint, bodyweight-only exercises. Be creative and change up your workouts often to keep your body from adapting. Find a sport you enjoy and play it often. Exercise 3-6 times per week, with at least one full rest day. Keep things fun and interesting!

4. Take supplements that are proven to work: whey protein powder, omega 3 fats, quality multivitamins. If you want, find a good caffeine-based fat-burner/energy-booster supplement and take it before workouts to increase fat-burning.

There you go: everything you need to know to get fit, lose fat, and create a healthier, great-looking body fast!
