What Is the Fastest Way to Lose Weight?

It's definitely one of the most common fitness-related questions asked all around the world:

"What is the fastest way to lose weight?"

A very simple question with a relatively complex answer. The bottom line is that everyone is different. Different bodies, different personalities, different motivations. What helps your best friend lose 10 pounds super fast may not help you at all... and vice versa. One of the true "secrets" of fast weight loss is that everyone must figure out what works for them. There simply is no one universal "one size fits all" program, plan, or method that can truly be called "the fastest way to lose weight".

That being said, there are a handful of techniques that have been proven to help just about anyone burn fat and lose pounds in a very fast and relatively healthy way. Below is a simple outline of 3 of the best techniques for losing fat quickly. It's a very effective plan of attack that you can use to get rid of fat, lose inches, burn off your belly fat, tighten and tone your thighs, stomach, hips, arms, etc... and leave you with a boosted metabolism that will make it easier to continue losing weight and/or keep the weight you've already lost off of your body.

3 of the Best Fast Weight Loss Techniques

Laser Focus + High-Energy Action

When it comes to losing weight quickly, nothing is more important than laser-like focus and high-energy action. People who focus all their thoughts and energy on one achievable, short-term goal -- such as losing 10 or 15 pounds in a couple of weeks -- almost always experience tremendous success. Focus leads to better results in less time, it's as simple as that.

High-energy action is the other side of the equation. You must increase your physical and mental energy -- and then take "massive" action on a consistent basis -- in order to lose weight as fast as possible. That means stringing together several days, weeks, and even months of healthy eating and effective exercise in a way that leads to rapid fat loss.

The quickest and most-proven way to increase both focus and mental energy is to create a detailed goal statement that you read to yourself every day. Spend several minutes a day visualizing yourself having achieved your goal. Everyone time you find yourself becoming unfocused or "getting off track" go find a quiet spot and spend a few moments visualizing how great you'll look and feel once you've lost that ugly, stubborn, and dangerous weight.

Super Clean Diet

If there is truly a single fastest way to lose weight it would have to be eating a super clean diet based around lean proteins, "good" carbs, and healthy fats. Very clean eating leads to faster and easier weight loss 99% of the time. Almost all fitness experts agree: diet is at least 75% of the solution in all healthy weight loss programs. If you consistently eat a very clean, well-planned diet you will lose weight very quickly, no doubt about it.

For most people, the best diet for losing body fat fast is a low-carb -- or at least "lower-carb" -- eating plan with meals and snacks based around lean proteins, lots of fibrous carbs (e.g. vegetables, fruits, and beans), and decent amounts of healthy fats (e.g. virgin olive oil, natural peanut butter, avocado, etc.). All simple sugars, refined flours, and "bad" fats must be avoided completely (except for planned "cheat" meals, if you include them in your program). Most processed carbohydrates should be avoided. Healthy high-fiber starchy carbs (such as baked potatoes, oatmeal, and whole grains) should be limited and rotated or cycled in a way that "confuses" your metabolism in a way that keeps it elevated and burning calories 24 hours a day.

Ultra-Efficient Exercise

Efficient exercise, done on a regular basis, is definitely one of the fastest ways to burn fat and lose weight. The most-efficient and possibly "best" all-around form of exercise is interval-based exercise (sometimes called "variable-intensity" exercise). Interval exercise causes your body to burn more fat for energy than regular steady-intensity. On top of that, it creates powerful hormonal and metabolic changes in the body that protect vital lean muscle tissue while dramatically boosting the metabolism for many hours after you've completed a workout. If you really want to get rid of body fat, lose pounds, and create a lean and sexy body fast, make interval-based exercise a foundation of your fast weight loss program!
