Ready? Here we go...
You must have a clear, specific weight loss/fitness goal in mind at all times. For best results you should keep it simple and very possible. For example, losing 10 pounds within the next month is something almost anyone can do if they are focused and dedicated. Write out your goal on paper and read it multiple times per day, at least once in the morning and once at night.
Maybe the biggest "secret" to fast, healthy weight loss is momentum. You need to develop mental and emotional momentum in order to make dramatic changes in a short amount of time. The way you do that is by doing lots of the "right" stuff and little to none of the "wrong" stuff. Every time you eat a healthy meal, choose a clean protein snack, do an intense workout, or turn down a piece of chocolate cake you build momentum. These things move you toward your fat loss goal and you can intuitively feel that you're making progress.
Just get started and get going building momentum. If you fall off the "wagon" just pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and get going again. You can build a sense of momentum in as little as 2 or 3 days. The hard part is overcoming the initial inertia and forcing yourself to break out of your comfort zone. But by doing a little more each day it gets easier and easier... as you'll see for yourself!
One of the best ways to begin any fast weight loss program is to do some form of "jumpstart". This helps you get mentally and physically prepared and provides a clean break from old patterns and bad habits. Doing a short 1-2 days juice or water fast is a good option. Another great option is to do a 2 or 3 day raw diet consisting solely of pure water, fresh raw fruits, and raw nuts and seeds. Fasts and raw diets detox and cleanse your body while boosting energy and even helping you lose a couple of pounds in many cases!
Clean Carb Diet
In terms of dieting, nothing is more important to your weight loss success than the quality and quantity of carbohydrates you consume. Without a doubt, the best diet for losing weight fast is one that's based around protein, healthy fats, and "clean," natural carbs. The best carbs comes from vegetables, fruits, beans, legumes, nuts, and seeds. The worst carbs come from refined sugars and flours. Many starches are "mid-level" carbs, including potatoes and whole grains (wheat, corn, rice, etc).
Dieting for quick fat loss doesn't have to be difficult. Just follow these simple steps:
- Eat a small meal or snack about every 3 hours during the day
- Base every meal and snack around a quality protein source
- Include some form of quality carbohydrate and/or healthy fat with each meal
- Eat just enough to satisfy your hunger, but never to the point of feeling very "full" (a slight amount of remaining hunger is OK)
For the best possible weight loss and body-changing results, only eat the cleanest natural carbs for the first couple of weeks of this program. So mainly just raw and lightly cooked vegetables, raw fruits, beans, and legumes. After you've lost a few pounds and built up some momentum you can add in some healthy starches like oatmeal, sweet potatoes, and 100% whole grain breads/cereals/pastas/etc.
This type of simple diet will get your blood sugar and insulin level under control while stabilizing energy and, eventually, appetite levels. You won't ever feel very hungry and you're overall energy levels and feelings of well-being should increase dramatically within 1 to 3 weeks!
Metabolism Booster Exercise
You don't have to kill yourself in the gym but you do need to do some exercise in order to experience the best and fastest weight loss results. Forget the 1 or 2 hour long boring treadmill sessions. Do a few 20-30 minute, variable-intensity, interval-based workouts per week, all based around a combination of total-body strength training and cardio exercise. You'll dramatically increase your metabolism, burn fat ultra fast, lose pounds, tone and strengthen your entire body... and end up looking and feeling great!
The key is to o "metabolism booster" workouts that fire up your body's natural fat-burning mechanisms both during and for several hours AFTER you've left the gym. These strength training and cardio exercise "combo" workouts build muscle while stripping layers of fat off your body incredibly fast. A simple example is a circuit-training workout based around short, intense sets of bodyweight exercise (e.g. push-ups, pull-ups, and squats) interspersed with 60-second jump rope sessions and 90-second rest/recovery periods.
For best results do some form of metabolism booster workout every other day. Keep your workouts to 30 minutes or less to maintain high intensity levels and avoid over-training, burnout, and injury. Focus on "big", compound, multi-joint exercises that workout multiple muscle groups: squats, dips, presses, pull-ups, inverse rows, deadlifts, lunges, hanging-leg raises, etc. (Also do about 10 minutes of brisk aerobic exercise each and every morning in order to start your day right and get that momentum going!)
So here's the deal: most weight loss, diet, and "fat burner" supplements provide little to no real benefits. But a few relatively inexpensive, safe supplements can definitely speed up your fat loss results. The best options are whey protein powder, omega 3 fatty acids (eg. fish oil), quality multi-vitamins, and natural fat-burners based around things like green tea extract, B vitamins, and yerba mate. By themselves these supplements won't cause you to lose much weight. But when used in combination with proper diet and exercise they'll definitely speed up your healthy fat loss results!
The "Combo Effect" Secret
The big "secret" to the effectiveness of this method is what I call the "combo effect": the synergistic combination of multiple techniques that allow you to get better results faster than any single technique by itself. By eating cleanly (especially in terms of your carb intake) you don't have to go to extremes with your exercise routine. By exercising properly 3-4 times per week you don't have to worry so much about counting calories and watching every little bite. By taking shortcut supplements you don't have to be 100% "perfect" with your diet or exercise. The key is to do everything well at least 90% of the time. Stay focused on your goal an take small steps toward it each and every day until you build the kind of unstoppable momentum that will bring about amazing body-transforming changes within a matter of a few weeks!
So there you have it: the BEST way to boost your metabolism, burn body fat, shed pounds, and lose a significant amount of weight fast... all while toning your muscles, increasing your fitness level, and improving your overall health!
