12 Diet Secrets for How to Lose Weight Fast

Lose Weight Fast

One of the most irrefutable scientific facts about weight loss is that diets alone don’t work.

The biggest problem with just eating less, especially on a crash diet, is hunger. Weight peels off at first, and that’s usually very exciting.But then, very quickly, you hit a wall. You’re constantly hungry. The hunger whittles down your resolve. You get discouraged, “break” your diet, eat more, and the weight returns.And, of course, we all know that hungry people are not happy people. 

When you put yourself on a restricted diet, you deny yourself the comfort and delight of food. You can’t eat fewer calories for long unless you generally feel satisfied and happy.So,this is not only about losing weight, but living a better healthier, happier life!

Here are 12 Diet Secrets to help you lose weight faster :

1. Drink plenty of water

Often we think we’re hungry when our bodies are actually just begging for water. So it’s important to drink enough water throughout the day to stay hydrated. Rather that worrying about stomach bloat and water weight, you need to realize that water will actually reduce bloating and overall weight.
Drinking water not only keeps fat toxins moving out of the body, it also keeps your metabolism running optimally. In fact, in a 2013 study showed 14 healthy men and women increased their metabolic rate by 30 percent after drinking about 16 ounces of water!
And if that’s not enough to convince you the world’s healthiest drink will help you lose weight fast, remember that it’s calorie-free, too!

2. Increase your protein intake

Increasing your protein intake is a great way to lose weight fast and burn fat. And most people don’t get nearly enough protein in their diet.
If your goal is to lose weight, I would recommend consuming half your body weight in grams of protein a day (at the very least). For those seeking to burn fat and build muscle, aim to consume 0.7 to 1 gram per pound of body weight. For example, if you weight 150 pounds, you should be getting 75 to 150 grams of protein a day (depending on your goals).

3. Drink green tea

Drinking herbal teas such as green tea, white tea, black tea can amp up your metabolism. According to a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, green tea is more effective than other teas because of it’s high levels of catechins. So if you want to lose weight fast, I recommend drinking 1–3 cups of green tea daily.

4. Eat 90 percent of your meals at home

Whether you’re a novice or a pro in the kitchen, making your own snacks and meals from whole foods will help you lose weight fast. By controlling what ingredients, fats and oils are in your food, you’ll be able to make healthy choices without sacrificing the food and flavors you love.
Start by committing to making one meal a day at home. As you get more comfortable in the kitchen, increase that number. You’ll be surprised by the quality of dishes you can make right in your own kitchen.

5. Make a menu

If you’re constantly find yourself thinking, “I have nothing to eat” or “I don’t know what to make,” preparing a menu is for you. Similarly, many diets may give you a plan in the beginning but then ask you to repeat the menu. Most of us like variety so it might be time to create your own menu.
Choose your favorite recipes and decide what you want to serve for meals a week at a time. Write out the ingredients you’ll need and take that list with you when you shop. You’ll have all the ingredients on hand to make nutritious meals for the week.
Bonus: Save money by choosing meals that use in-season produce and combining your meals with your local grocery store’s sales flyer. And don’t forget about leftovers! Use them to create new meals (for instance, make a stir-fry with leftover cooked meats and veggies) or have a weekly night where all the leftovers get put out and everyone in the family can eat their favorites again.

6. Slow down!

When you eat fast, it’s easy to overeat. It takes about 20 minutes for your stomach to register that it’s full. While you chew, your brain is processing that you are eating, and chewing releases enzymes for pre-digestion in your saliva to start the digestion process.
So begin mindful eating,chewing slowly and enjoying the flavor of your food! This process will ensure that you not only consume fewer calories, it also eases digestion and helps your brain to catch up with your body. If you have trouble eating slowly, try putting down your fork or spoon in between bites.

7. Don’t shop on an empty stomach

Does this situation sound familiar? You have the best of intentions to fill the grocery cart with lots of produce and healthy protein. But halfway through your shopping trip, your stomach starts growling and all of a sudden those potato chips are looking a lot more appealing than normal. Well, it’s happened to us all.
The best solution? Fill up before you go! When you’re not fighting hunger pangs, it’s a lot easier to make healthy choices.

8. Downsize your plate

Believe it or not, this really works! Because the same serving of food looks like less food on larger plates, trick your brain into eating less by serving your main dish on salad-sized plates instead of dinner ones.
Switch out all your large dinner plates with salad plates for a while. And it is amazing how a medium-sized plate of food felt more satisfying when you clean it. When you combine this with eating slower and more intentionally, you will enjoy your food more and eat less!

9. Step around stress

The link between our emotions and health can’t be overstated. One study found that people who didn’t take annual vacations were 32 percent more likely to die of heart disease

Managing stress by getting enough sleep, making time for friends and loved ones, and trying techniques like meditation will help keep your heart and waistline in shape.

10. Don’t smoke your life away

Every minute spent smoking shortens your life by a minute, not to mention the wrinkles and erectile dysfunction it causes. The good news is that you will gain back years of your life if you quit.It`s not easy to quit,but at least you can try.

11. Think of your new, healthy habits as permanent, not temporary

Another key habit is to always keep track of your portion sizes. Those who were the most successful at maintaining a healthy weight made healthy habits a permanent part of their lifestyle and didn’t restrict them to ‘dieting’ periods of their life. 

Returning to old, unhealthy habits – eating larger portions, skipping exercise and making unhealthy food choices will be the quickest way to return to your previous weight.

12. Losing weight early and fast is best

Besides giving you a great psychological boost right out of the gate, losing weight quickly may also help you keep it off longer. To those of us who are used to hearing that slow and steady wins the race, this news is a little shocking and counterintuitive.
In a 2010 University of Florida study, when researchers analyzed data on 262 middle-aged women who were struggling with obesity, they demonstrated that shedding weight fast lead to larger overall weight loss and longer-term success in keeping it off.

Adopting one or two of these essential lifestyle practices is okay, but optimal health and lasting weight loss requires that you follow the whole program.
