A Plan to Lose Weight Fast
Everyone wants a plan to lose weight fast, but there are so many questions to be answered before starting a new program that sometimes it can seem too daunting to even begin! How fast is too fast? Will rapid weight loss be maintainable? Is rapid weight loss even possible for me? Well, fear no more, because I’m about to give you a simple key to results: my personalized plan to lose weight fast.
First off, you’ve got to understand that food is not the enemy. I repeat, FOOD is not the enemy!! It is your best tool for fueling your weight loss process. Eating the right foods will trigger fat loss, fuel intense fat burning workouts, and keep your body healthy and thriving for all of the other important things you have to do.
Secondly, adding in 20 to 30 minutes of cardio per day plus weight training 3 to 4 times a week will greatly maximize your results. Get that heart racing and calories burning! Gaining muscle will not only give you a much more fit and toned appearance, but also the more muscle you have the more calories you burn all of the time. So pick up some dumbbells and rev up that metabolism! A good balance of strength training and cardio will ensure that you don’t just add on bulky muscle while retaining your fat storage, but you’ll lose weight faster and more effectively. And, mega-plus, you’ll look like a total babe in no time!
So, what’s there to eat?
You want to balance your meals with complex carbohydrates, proteins, and healthy fats to achieve the best health and most lasting results. For the quickest weight loss, you’ll want to make sure you have enough fuel for muscle building while keeping your portions in check. Slightly elevate your protein intake, especially after a gym sesh, and try consuming less carbs at each meal as the day goes on. Make sure you are taking in all the nutrients you need for optimal health in every aspect, which means loading up on green veggies, berries, nuts, wild-caught fish, and whole grains.
Here’s a great meal map to follow, with just the right portions and balance of macros to keep you fueled up and burning that fat!
1/4 cup steel cut oats
1/4 cup blueberries or sliced strawberries
1 hardboiled egg (Easy, because you can keep a week’s supply in the fridge for hectic mornings. Plus, one egg benefits you in so many ways!)
1 cup coffee with unsweetened almond milk, or black
2 stalks of celery with 2 Tbs natural peanut butter, dotted with 10 raisins
One slice whole grain toast with 1/4 avocado, turkey breast (sliced or burger-style), fresh tomato, spinach or chard, arugula, and bean sprouts. Serve with spicy brown mustard for a little kick.
1/2 cup baby carrots, snow peas, kale chips, or other yummy veggie.
If pre-workout, add 1/3 sweet potato with unrefined cold-pressed coconut oil and cinnamon.
1 apple or banana with 2 Tbs almond butter
Protein shake with no added sugar. Make it delicious by blending 1/2 frozen banana, 1/3 cup almond milk, and 1 scoop chocolate whey protein, then topping with a sprinkle of Pb2. Yum!!
4 ounces wild Alaskan salmon
1/3 cup sautéed veggies: try spinach, water chestnut, kale, chard, onions, carrots, and broccoli with a little tamarin sauce.
If you are starving close to bedtime and you must have a snack, go for a bit of plain greek yogurt with vanilla extract or cinnamon. It’s tasty and gentle enough on your stomach for digestion while you’re sleeping.
This is the perfect example of a day of food-charged weight loss! Make sure to stay extra hydrated and work hard in the gym, and keep a positive attitude
