Weight Loss Tips, Part 1

Share on Social Media

There are many factors to consider when choosing and implementing a rapid weight loss plan. The first question you need to ask yourself is, is this a sustainable plan? Meaning, will I be able to stick to it after I start it? Any diet plan can take some time to see results, and if you do not have the motivation, dedication, and impatience to see it through you will never see results with any weight loss plan.

The next question to ask is if you have the information you need to achieve the results and be successful. While only you can help answer that first question, there is help on the second. Following are a number of  weight loss tips that will help you achieve results with your rapid weight loss plan.

Whole grains are essential to include in your weight loss diet. Studies show that those who consume whole grain foods achieve more rapid weight loss than those who do not. Insulin is the chemical that controls fat storage in the body, whereas blood glucose help control and modulate the level of your body fat. Whole grains are responsible for increasing both of these, meaning the more whole grains you can incorporate into your diet plan the better.

Nuts are a great source of protein and help control your food cravings. The protein also helps your body build muscle and burn fat during your exercise programs. And unlike the protein you get from meats, protein from nuts comes with good fat instead of the artery clogging cholesterol heavy fat attributed with meat. Many fast weight loss plans include nuts in their diet plans because of this.

White meat like chicken or turkey contain more omega 3, which helps your metabolism stay on full throttle for maximum fat loss and calorie burning. Try to work at least one serving of these lean meats into your daily weight loss diet . More protein options – fish. Fish are a great source of protein and omega 3 and are even leaner and better for you then light meats like chicken or turkey.

Go green with more vegetables. Your mom was right when she told you your vegetables were healthy. They are an important component of any weight loss diet, as they are low in calories and high in essential vitamins and minerals your body needs to lose weight fast. Which vegetables are best? Generally the greener they are, the better they are for you. Spinach, kale, broccoli, cauliflower and so on. Just take a look through your local product market; you can’t go wrong.

Berries are rich in antioxidants, a compound which studies have shown are proven to help with rapid weight loss plans. They also taste great and work well as a snack throughout the day. Choose berries like raspberries or blueberries for extra antioxidants.

Avoid trans fats. Studies show that trans fats not only increase your bad cholesterol level while reducing your good cholesterol, they also slow your fat loss and impede exercise. Most packages these days come labeled to show how much trans-fat is in a food item. If you are serious about your rapid weight loss plan you need to avoid this.
