If done correctly, fast weight loss isn't always a bad thing. The goal should always be to protect your health and feel good. While waiting to the last minute to get started on weight loss for the "big day" isn't the perfect scenario, there are a few aggressive tricks that can make weight loss faster and easier without sacrificing health.
One of the oldest and most successful ways to lose weight is to deplete your glycogen storage, so your body releases stored fluid, making you feel and look less bloated. It jump-starts and turbocharges your metabolism allowing your body to burn off stored fat vs. constantly having to process your not-so-healthy eating choices. There is a catch, however.....
To deplete glycogen storage and lose weight, you need to reduce calories. However, when calories are reduced your metabolism slows down unless you do the three things listed below.
Remove the diet disasters that caused your weight gain in the first place. Cut out all the processed carbs, including these unsuspecting foods: cream in your coffee, wine, and sugar-laden juices. Maybe you're even drinking a protein shake already. Be careful—they may appear healthy but actually be no better than drinking liquid sugar, causing your blood sugar levels to spike, which in turn drives hunger and cravings, making it impossible to stick to a clean diet.
Do this instead: Swap out your sugar spiking breakfast for a metabolic boosting one. Keep it very simple, yet highly effective. Are you a coffee drinker? If so, drink it black, or add some LynFit Protein Shake to it to act as your creamer.
For breakfast, drink a LynFit Whey Protein Shake that is specifically designed to boost your metabolism by 25 percent. LynFit Why Protein contains the perfect amount of protein and is made from pure, high-grade whey. It will trick your body into believing it had a full meal, and will not slow down your metabolism.
LynFit Whey Protein also blocks cortisol, those nasty stress hormones that make you store excess fat around your mid-section. You'll feel better in your clothes since you'll be less bloated and lighter.
Swap out your usual chicken or red meat dinner for white fish and vegetables. You don't have to starve your body of the protein necessary to keep your metabolism running high—you simply swap out the higher calorie, fattier protein for white fish instead.
Fish, white fish in particular; is lower in calories, contains less fat, and is a good source of iodine, so it enhance thyroid activity. The rule of thumb is the lighter and whiter the fish, the better it is for your metabolism. That means faster weight loss.
If your current workout is not a metabolic boosting workout, it's time to break up with it. Doing the same old stuck-in-a-rut exercise routine and expecting different results is, well..... enough said.
Do this instead: Switch to metabolic boosting exercises and do them three times weekly. Metabolic boosting workouts are the very best way to increase lean muscle and burn fat faster. They are a form of high-intensity training, yet they don't require a gym and only takes 30 minutes to complete. On your off workout days, walk at an average pace (3–4 MPH) for 60 minutes. It is that simple!
The bottom line is that food is 90 percent of your weight loss success, so that's where your big focus needs to be. If you're not losing weight as you should, you're not eating correctly for weight loss.
