How to Lose Weight Naturally

Have you ever wondered how to lose weight naturally? Natural weight loss is the loss weightmost simple and effective way for permanent weight loss. It’s not about dieting; it’s about making gradual changes to your eating habits that will help you lose the weight for good. Here are a few easy steps to help you start losing weight naturally.

How to Lose Weight – The Basics of Weight Loss

Lose WeightAt it’s most basic, losing weight is about burning more calories than you eat. That seems simple enough, but if were really that simple, none of us would have a weight problem. Too often we take drastic measures to see results — diets, pills or those weird fitness gadgets on infomercials that promise instant success. Maybe you lose weight but what happens when you go off that diet or stop that crazy workout program? You gain it all back and more. The real secret to weight loss is to make small, lasting changes. The key is to forget about instant results and settle in for the long run.

Rules of Weight Loss

How to weight loss – Fat Loos Factor

Fat Loss Factor is a weight loss program developed by Dr. Charles Livingston, a certified nutritionist and chiropractor. It is now available online combining a eBook, videos and detailed workout plans.

The first phase of the program is cleansing. According to Dr. Livingston, if liver fails to break down cholesterol, fat begins to accumulate and causes obesity. Therefore, the number one priority is to cleanse the liver restoring its ability to filter toxic substances, and breaking the vicious fat accumulation cycle.

Once the cleansing is complete, the program proceeds to the second stage, which is weight loss proper. This is accomplished by a diet comrised of special foods with fat burning properties and an exercise program consisting of cardio workouts and strength training. Dr. Charles prefers shorter cardio workouts as they are more beneficial for weight loss that multi-hour marathons.

An advantage of Fat Loss Factor is its highly customizable nature. Dr. Livingston provides different exercise routines for men and women and also different workout plans for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. In addition, there are mini-workouts for those who can’t find time for the full workouts.

“Flexibility is very important when choosing a weight loss program”, says Tim Brody, a reviewer at TBReviews, “A rigid diet plan or exercise program is useless if you can’t follow it exactly to the letter, which for most people isn’t possible. Fat Loss Factor is advantageous in this regard. For example, if you realize that you don’t have time for a full 40-minute workout, this doesn’t mean you mark the day as failed in your exercise plan – simply perform the alternative 15-minute mini-workout instead”

Fat Loss Factor focuses on organic food in both cleansing and fat burning stage, which is a mixed blessing. On one hand, organic foods are obviously healthier and better suited for a weight loss diet. On the other hand, they are more expensive.

Finally, Dr. Livingston’s program pays a lot of attention to maintenance of low stress levels and emotional support because according to him, mental well being is absolutely necessary for achieving weight loss goals.
“There are no magic diet pill”, says Tim Brody, “Effort is necessary but a well-thought out scientifically based weight loss program such as Fat Loss Factor is a leverage that can significantly decrease the amount of effort required greatly increasing your chances of success.”

 

Lose Weight Fast

I really hope this may help and motivate someone to get out, get active and find the person they really are inside.

Since my late teens I have tried many diets – counting points, drinking meal replacements shakes, even “detox” diets. On one particular occasion about 10 years ago I attended weekly meetings and stuck to my diet and I lost about 6 pounds. I then floated around the same sort of weight until I met the person I love. I got a little bit comfortable and gained a few pounds. We got married and I guess I got a little more comfortable over time gaining a further 10 pounds… . I gained a lot of weight when I had my son, using it as an excuse to constantly eat!

I knew I had to do something about it. Even getting the buggy set up left me puffing and out of breath let alone actually taking my son out for a walk! I knew I was in there somewhere but instead the real me was being hidden by this big body. I felt invisible. Nobody else knew that the real me was being held hostage in my own body! I remember walking through a shopping centre pushing the double buggy feeling like a fat, frumpy idiot– definitely felt a LOT older than my years too. I used to look at the slim ones and think how easy they had it. I was jealous and sometimes even found myself thinking spiteful thoughts about them – even though that was just completely out of my character, sometimes I felt like my eyes were throwing daggers at people who were in any way, shape or form closer to what I WANTED to be.. happy, slim, attractive, confident.

I’d lost ALL of those qualities along with the weight gain. I felt utterly stupid just talking to people in the shops sometimes, just because I felt so lost in my own body. Nobody would notice me walk past them in the street – unless maybe I was eating something, and then I would swear I could hear them saying “you don’t need that“. Shopping was an absolutely AWFUL and soul destroying experience. I’d go out with the usual thrills and excitement of buying a new outfit, only to face clothes that either didn’t fit or didn’t stock my size. Even the sizes that did fit made me felt unattractive; the reflection staring back at me was not somebody I really recognised anymore… I think I found it hard to know who I actually was anymore.

I started losing weight on my own first and it was a real struggle. I thought I “knew what I was doing” but in reality I had no clue! Although I’d lost weight before I had only ever thought in “points” so I really had no real idea of what calories and fat were in foods.

I did not want to be like that anymore!even when you think you can do no more… you CAN!

But when I was looking into the weight loss programs, it seems like weight loss was the last thing that the program was designed to do.Iv tried many of them, but Can you imagine how frustrating that would be? You set a goal. You lose some weight, and you’re happy for that. But, as soon as that feeling of initial triumph shutters up your spine, you run face first into the wall of zero weight loss.I have bought almost 6 diet programs online. Either ebooks or software or coaching programs. My advice is to ONLY purchase programs that give you a 30-60 day money back guarantee.

I also fell victim to many of the fast weight loss fads out there.I’m not going to name programs but diet pills, those expensive diet plans where you have to buy their food exclusively and I even tried a personal trainer but it was just too expensive.

After a lot of experimenting I finally found a program that started working for me,allow me to have my eating style and fit into my budget and lifestyle. I was able to go from 222lbs to 196 in a little over 30 days. It gave me so much inspiration and confidence I signed up at the gym and continued on my diet and in another 30 days I was down to about 185.

The day I hit my goal weight I will never forget. The last 1 pound had taken me the longest time to get rid of. But that morning when I stepped on the scales and saw my weight was 1/2 pound UNDER my goal weight I jumped off the scales and ran around the house screaming! I was so so happy. I’d finally done it and it was an unbelievable feeling. This feeling of euphoria lasted about 10 minutes before the enormity of what I had achieved actually sunk in. I sat on my sofa in the lounge and just started crying and crying. I cried on and off for most of the day. I know that sounds completely ridiculous, but I had DONE IT! Part of the tears were of absolute joy and part of me was crying with fear – fear of not being able to maintain and stay where I was. The worry of “what the hell was I going to do now?” was also a big part of it.

guess what? I am still safe now,and I believe I will be fine if I always keep doing what the program taught me to,thank you VERY MUCH and your program,I am a new person now,and for whom is reading the story,never believe that it’s genetic that your are overweight and you can’t change it no matter how hard you try, you just believe in yourself, yes you CAN.And if you ask me my opinion about what to do,I would say “just try it”, you don’t need to follow my way of “trying out”,this program really worked for me, it will work for you.

I love the new me and all the compliments I am getting and the support from my friends and family has been fantastic, thank you John,Steve and my cute son Ralph,thank you for giving me the support and power.And hope all of you read this article can get help to copy my success and share my happiness.

Lose Weight Fast: How to Do It Safely

Working on weight loss? Then you probably want results — fast.

Let me save you some time: skip the fad diets. Their results don’t last. And you have healthier options you can start on — today!

You can safely lose 3 or more pounds a week at home with a healthy diet and lots of exercise, says weight loss counselor Katherine Tallmadge, RD

How to Lose Weight Fast

If you burn 500 more calories than you eat every day for a week, you should lose about 1-2 pounds.

If you want to lose weight faster, you’ll need to eat less and exercise more.

For instance, if you take in 1,050 to 1,200 calories a day, and exercise for one hour per day, you could lose 3-5 pounds in the first week, or more if you weigh more than 250 pounds. It’s very important not to cut calories any further — that’s dangerous.

Limiting salt and starches may also mean losing more weight at first — but that’s mostly fluids, not fat.

“When you reduce sodium and cut starches, you reduce fluids and fluid retention, which can result in up to 5 pounds of fluid loss when you get started,” says Michael Dansinger, MD, of NBC’s The Biggest Loser show.

Diets for Fast Weight Loss

Dansinger recommends eating a diet that minimizes starches, added sugars, and animal fat from meat and dairy foods. For rapid weight loss, he recommends focusing  on fruits, veggies, egg whites, soy products, skinless poultry breasts, fish, shellfish, nonfat dairy foods, and 95% lean meat.

Here are more tips from Dawn Jackson Blatner, RD, author of The Flexitarian Diet:

  • Eat vegetables to help you feel full.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Get tempting foods out of your home.
  • Stay busy — you don’t want to eat just because you’re bored.
  • Eat only from a plate, while seated at a table. No grazing in front of the ‘fridge.
  • Don’t skip meals.

Keeping a food journal — writing down everything you eat — can also help you stay on track.

“Even if you write it down on a napkin and end up throwing it away, the act of writing it down is about being accountable to yourself and is a very effective tool for weight loss,” says Bonnie Taub Dix, MA, RD, author of Read It Before You Eat It.

Besides jotting down what you ate, and when, you might also want to note how you were feeling right before you ate it. Were you angry, sad, or bored? We often focus so much on foods and calories, but our emotions are a huge part of our eating habits.

If you see a persistent pattern in your emotional eating, please consider talking to a counselor about it. They can be a big help in finding other ways to handle your feelings.
