How to Lose Weight Fast - 5 Quick and Easy Tips

by : Peggy Edwards

Have you been wanting to lose weight fast, but just can't seem to get going in the right direction? Do you want to trim down in order to fit into that new dress or new suit? Well, there are many different ways to take off those extra pounds, but here are 5 simple and easy to use ways to lose weight fast.

1. Drink more water - I'm sure you have heard it said many times that you should drink 8 glasses of water a day to stay healthy. And it's true, water helps cleanse your body of toxins and keep you healthier, but water also helps you lose weight.

Soda, tea, coffee and other beverages may taste good, but they contain a lot of calories that will not help you with any weight loss plan. Substitute these for water and you will see results.

2. Eliminate the sugar - Sugar isn't just bad for diabetics, it's also bad for anyone who is trying to diet. Because of the high calorie content of sugar in most foods, you really need to reduce it down to a bare minimum to get better weight loss results. Look at the food labels and you will quickly see what I mean.

3. Reduce the fats - Cutting down on your fat intake will go a long way in taking off the pounds. Simple things like using olive oil instead of vegetable oil in your cooking and only using half the amount will be a step in the right direction. It may not be easy at first to reduce the fats, but the results will be well worth it!

4. Increase the number of meals you eat - I can already hear people saying how can eating more possibly help me to lose weight fast? I said eat more meals, not more food. Eat 4-5 smaller meals a day and you will eliminate cravings and you will always feel full. The 3 meals a day mentality is only helping us pack on the weight.

5. Throw out the evening snacks - To remove the pounds you'll want to eliminate the snacks, but this is especially true in the evening. Snacks are full of nothing nutritious, only empty calories full of sugars and fats. Replace them with a healthy snack of fruits or vegetables. Even a glass of fruit juice would be great.

While these are 5 easy tips to lose weight fast, they will require a commitment on your part to work. If you are determined to take off the pounds then you will find success with these tips and others as well.
