Best Way to Lose Weight Fast -- Jumpstart Your Metabolism & Boost Energy at the Same Time

(This is Part 3 of our blog series: The Best Way to Lose Weight Fast. Enjoy!)

It is possible to jumpstart your fat loss progress and boost your energy at the same time. In fact, it's an important part of the best way to lose weight fast! Jump-starting yourself both physically and mentally is very important if you really want to lose a significant amount of fat quickly and get that fit, sexy body in a matter of weeks. Here's how to do it...

1. Do a 1 or 2-day juice fast or raw diet

Start off by doing a short, simple raw juice fast or raw diet. Raw vegetables and fruits are packed with powerful vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and other nutrients. Plus they're super high in fiber. For 24-48 hours consume only fresh raw juices and/or raw foods like raw fruits, veggies, nuts, and seeds. This will help to cleanse your body, detox your organs, boost your energy, and lose a pound or two quickly. Plus it will help you get into the right frame of mind for the rest of the fat loss program.

Note: You can also do a really simple 1 day fast based around drinking only lemon water (spring water with fresh lemon or lime juice squeezed into it).

2. Start doing "refreshing" exercise in the morning

Every day of the week, do at least 10 minutes of refreshing exercise. Don't overdo it, just try to get your blood pumping and break a sweat. This is an amazingly effective way to boost your energy and motivation for the entire day. Plus it will help you burn off some calories and jumpstart your metabolism, especially when done before your first meal!

3. Cut out all highly processed foods

You can boost your energy greatly and lose weight much faster by simply cutting highly refined/processed foods out of your diet. The worst offenders are anything that contains refined sugars, flours, or fats. Learn to read labels or, better yet, avoid packaged food altogether if you can... at least for the time being. At the very least, you MUST cut all high-sugar, high-fat junk food out of your diet... especially sodas, chips, sweets, etc.

There you go: 3 proven ways to jumpstart your fat loss and boost your energy at the same time. These simple steps will help to set you up for fast weight loss success!
