The Fastest, Simplest Way to Lose 20 Pounds in a Month

Let's face it, losing weight is usually a pretty dang difficult thing to do. But the thing is is that most people over-complicate the process of burning fat, losing pounds, and getting fit. Healthy and fast fat loss really comes down to doing a few simple things each and every day. In fact, you could realistically lose up to 20 lbs in the next month by following these very simple steps...

1. Write It Down -- Write down your short-term goal and post it somewhere where you'll see it often. It's important to keep your goal in mind as much as possible if you want quickly, healthy weight loss results.

2. Get on the Simple-Diet Bandwagon -- A healthy weight loss diet shouldn't be complicated. In fact, it should be super-simple. Get most of your calories from unprocessed foods, avoid most processed foods, and completely eliminate refined sugars and "white" flours from your diet. Keep starchy carbs like potatoes to a minimum. Eat plenty of meat, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and raw fruit. Eat frequent small meals instead of 2 or 3 large meals, spaced out about every 2-3 hours, and you won't get too hungry.

3. Do Short, Simple Workouts -- You don't gotta kill yourself in the gym but you should do some simple exercise if you really want to lose 20 pounds in a month. The best form of fat-burning exercise is circuit training that combines simple weight resistance movements with interval-based cardiovascular/aerobic exercise. You don't even need any weights or fitness equipment to get great results... just your own bodyweight and some creativity! A few sets of push-ups, lunges, squats, and pull-ups or inverted rows, combined with some short runs or (if you're already in decent shape) wind-sprints, will completely tax your body's energy reserves and force it to burn off fat in a very efficient manner.

That's it. If you do the things above you will burn off lots of fat while keeping that important lean muscle on your body. And you'll boost your metabolism in a way that will make it easy to maintain the weight loss or even continue dropping pounds if you want to!
