5 Easy Ways to Lose Weight Fast

Looking for some easy ways to lose weight fast, in a safe/healthy manner? Then you'll like the list of proven diet and exercise tips below...

1. Jumpstart your fat loss with a juice fast -- Do a 1, 2, or 3-day raw juice fast to jumpstart your metabolism, cleanse/detox your entire body, boost your energy, flush waste products out of your system, and lose a pound or two quickly and easily.

2. Drink a gallon of water per day -- If you sip water constantly all day long, you'll suppress your appetite and keep food cravings in check. You'll also boost your energy and optimize your metabolism. All of this adds up to faster, easier weight loss!

3. Do morning exercise -- Doing as little as 10 minutes of exercise first thing each morning can have a huge impact on your health and fitness levels. Besides being a natural energy-booster and metabolism-stimulator, morning exercise makes you feel great and greatly increase the chances that you'll make healthy food and activity choices for the rest of the day. It's definitely an easy way to lose weight fast (and healthily)!

4. Use fiber -- High-fiber foods and fiber supplements can make losing weight much, much easier to do. That's mainly because fiber is a natural hunger-killer that keeps your from overeating and helps you stick to your diet. Also, pretty much all fiber-rich foods are loaded with healthy vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and other nutrients that optimize your metabolism and help you burn fat faster.

5. Do short, full-body workouts -- You don't need to spend hours doing long, boring, difficult, and painful "cardio" workouts in order to lose weight quickly. In fact, the most effective form of exercise for burning fat fast is called "interval training" and it involves doing short, intense workouts based around brief intervals of high-intensity activity. Sprinkling some sprints or burpees into a slow jog is one of the simplest examples of HIIT. But by far the most effective single workout is a full-body circuit training workout based around bodyweight movements like squats, burpees, box jumps, push-ups, pull-ups, lunges, Turkish get-ups, etc. Your "intervals" in these workouts are circuits of 1 set each of 3 or 5 compound/multi-joint exercises performed with no rest in-between sets. Rest for a minute between circuits and repeat a few times. Nothing will help you get rid of pounds of body fat in a faster, easier, or more-efficient manner!
