Summer is almost here! It is time to start panicking about the weight you didn’t lose in the Spring but swore you would. We all know that slow and steady is the right way to lose weight. Yes, yes… diet and exercise is the key. Change your lifestyle. Motivate yourself to eat healthy. Add those early morning workouts to your routine and see results in a few weeks. Well what if your daily routine is already exhausting that you cannot even think to add something to it? A great deal of us feel this way, which is why the Spring weight loss plan never came to fruition. We know how to do it right, but here are some times to see some results fast when you need to. They won’t get all the weight off and keep it off forever – that part is your responsibility alone and you have to do it when you are ready. But in the meantime, this list will help you shed a few quick pounds to squeeze into your graduation dress over the weekend:
- Cut out sugar. Fat is not the reason we gain so much weight, as we have been taught in the past. It is actually sugar. It wreaks havoc inside our bodies in so many ways and causes us to hold on to that dangerous fat around our mid sections. A quick way to shed some pounds is to cut out sugar completely, or dramatically cut it back. Read your labels. Stop adding it where you can, and you will see quick, though small, results.
- Lose the water weight. Especially for women, water weight can create problems. Menstruation is a big culprit of this and some of that is difficult to avoid. Salt consumption can also help with this and that is easy to do. Simply cut back on eating salt as much as you can and you will stop holding onto so much water. Those pounds will drop fast.
- Visit a medical weight loss clinic. These clinics are designed to provide quick results and they have several strategies to achieving them. They will work with you at whichever pace you feel comfortable, and that will involve a diet plan with exercise, which takes a bit longer. However, you can opt for their vitamin infusions and supplemental medications to lose the pounds quickly. The prescriptions are not healthy to be taking long term and have been know to bring about negative changes to the body if taken for a while. However, if you need some results fast you can opt for the supplements and medications to get you into that cocktail dress for next weekend,
- Cardio. You can never go wrong with a little cardio-inspired workout. If you only have a week or two to reach your goal, sweat it out as much as possible. You can skip the toning and target workouts. Byass the yoga and aligning your chi and all that jazz. Get to the meat of how to lose the weight by sweating as much as possible. Try on that parka for an hour on the elliptical machine. Again, you won’t see a ton of weight slide off, but you will notice a little bit right away.
