How to lose weight fast

This is a quick way to lose weight.

  • Create a calorie deficit:

By eating fewer calories in a day than you burn, this is actually the number thing that helps achieve a weight loss.

I am not saying that you should go and start counting calories, off cause I don’t count calories and have never thought of doing that; but what I do is portion control.

And how I do this is simply taking note of what I eat in a day and cutting down on the quantity of each of my meal in a day.

So let’s say, I use to eat one full bow of white rice per meal in the past; I will go ahead divide that by 2 or 3 bows, based on my fitness activity for that day and my weight loss goal generally.

So Days that I will engage in a more intense workout session, I will probably divide it by 2.

And if I did fewer workouts I will divide it by 3 or 4 since did am not burning much fat or calorie for that day because of my reduced activities.

One other way to easily create a calorie deficit is to replace your simple carbohydrates with complex carbs.

The complex carbohydrates keep you full for a longer time and they contain fewer calories.

A  bow of complex carbohydrate contains half the number of calories found in the same portion of simple carbohydrates.

So examples of complex carbohydrates are foods like:

  • Sweet potatoes
  • Oatmeal
  • Yam
  • Brown rice
  • White potatoes
  • whole wheat bread
  • whole wheat pasta

And simple Carbohydrates are:

  • Cereal
  • White flower
  • Bread with white flower
  • Cookies
  • Soda
  • Most of the baked knack’s
  • Eat more protein:

All your proteins should be lean, such as egg whites, fish, chicken etc.

Protein helps promotes muscle Building which in turn helps you burn fat.

They speed up your metabolism, burning fat exponentially while you become stronger.

But remember that protein requires more energy for your body to digest it so you might want to eat it citrus fruits which helps for quick digestion and absorption them into the body.

  • Drink Green Tea :

Sip a glass or two glass of green tea every day. Most green teas contain high Catechin, an antioxidant which helps in promoting weight loss, and even belly fat. It also helps kill fat storing bacteria’s in the body thereby letting you lose weight faster.  And it is recommended you cut down on your caffeine intake because it lowers the antioxidant content in your green tea, thus it hinders your weight loss progress.

  • Drink plenty of water:

Studies have shown that water helps promote weight loss in two ways.

First, drinking more water—at least 5-8 cups per day can increase the amount of energy which helps you in engaging in more burning activities. Second, if you substitute sugary drinks like

  1. sodas,
  2. sports drinks,
  3. flavoured drinks,
  4. sweetened milk,
  5. and coffees with water

These can result in even more weight loss because water does not contain any single calorie.

Imagine if the coffee you wanted to take has 20 calories in it and you just replaced it with water, you would have saved yourself from that extra calories.

The funny things it that when you consume a certain amount of calories drinks, they make you more hungry and more likely to overeat at next meal.

  • Eat more of the  Good fats:

When I talk about the good fats, I am simply talking about unsaturated fats. They are healthy fats the remains in its liquid form under room temperature.

Examples of these are

  1. olive oil
  2. avocados
  3. Vegetable oils
  4. Hazelnuts
  5. Pure Groundnut oil
  6. Soya bean oil
  7. And almond oil.
  • Do Strength Training:

One of the quickest ways of burning fat is through strength training.

I know most people consider cardio as the best, but cardio basically should be just an addition to your strength training; because strength training burns calories even after you have finish training and you are resting chilling and even at sleep.

Whereas the calories burn for cardio is just instantaneous the moment you exercising, you just stop burning a calorie.

Am not saying you should go and start lifting all those overly heavy weighted dumbbells and barbells. You can do your body weight strength training or use lite weight during your workout session.

I have in the channel lots of body weight exercises that you can start with and more are coming.

And my final bonus tips for you…… is to avoid alcohol or reduce your intake of alcohol, because it contains a lot of calories and makes you feel hungry quicker than should be so you end up eating too much.
