You read it everywhere, "lose weight fast," and see it regularly on TV shows like NBCs, "The Biggest Loser." Contestants regularly lose 8-12 pounds each week. They are always saying, "This doesn't happen in the real world!" or does it? Yes, it can and it does. How? The secret to fast weight loss is consistency.
One thing is for sure, on shows like "The Biggest Loser," contestants are consistent. They exercise daily, are careful about what they eat and they face their issues. Yes, this is a reality TV show and yes, the contestants seem to achieve the impossible by losing the amount of weight as fast as they do, but you can do it to! Read on to find out how.
Remember, I said that the secret to fast weight loss is consistency? I'm not kidding. You can be consistent; you just have to set your mind to do it. Believe me, even with all the doctors and other professional assistance the contestants receive, if they didn't set their minds to it, they would fail.
Additionally, because previous contestants have been successful, the new contestants believe they can do it to.
Here's the Key
The only proven, successful methods for fast weight loss have been to follow a nutritious diet, exercise regularly and to change your lifestyle to incorporate healthy habits and choices. Without these 3 key factors, your fast weight loss efforts will crash and burn.
No matter how you try to put it, calories count, when aiming to lose weight. The facts are simple; take in more calories than you burn off and you gain weight. On the other hand, if you burn off more calories than you take in, you lose weight. Fast weight loss happens when you get the combination of burning off and taking in calories just right. But you won't know either number if you don't record your calories in some sort of weight loss journal every day.
More Effort, More Weight Loss
Did you know that the more effort you put into achieving your weight loss goals, the more successful you will be? It's the truth and I've experienced it with numerous clients. The clients who are willing to record their efforts in their weight management journal, work with me in a personal training program, perform the necessary cardio workouts and make changes in their lifestyle are the ones who are the most successful.
Now, I'm not saying that you have to work with me to be successful, but I am saying that you have to create a fitness program and stick with it to be successful. The trainer or program can only do so much, your consistency and commitment to the program determines your level of success.
And that is the secret to achieving fast weight loss.
