There comes a time in most of our lives when we want or “need” to lose weight fast. Whether it’s an upcoming wedding, high school reunion or bikini season, it seems like something’s coming up where we need to shed those extra pounds and do it fast! And there are literally thousands of ways to do it. However, many of these ways can be very dangerous, especially if you don’t know what you’re doing.
It’s fairly common knowledge that if you burn more calories than you consume, you’ll lose weight. That is true. However, what most of us don’t know is that it’s not necessarily fat we’re burning, it’s often muscle, which is a really bad thing. When you lose muscle, you lose strength and energy. You must consume protein regularly to retain muscle mass while still burning fat.
One notion of losing weight fast is to completely starve yourself. This is not only one of the most dangerous diet plans to your body, but, after your body goes into “emergency mode”, your metabolism will slow down to compensate for the lack of calories it’s getting and, therefore, burns less. Far too often, people will spend lots of time, energy and money into working out to lose weight, but too little into researching the proper foods to eat and when.
When you decide you want to lose weight fast, don’t just jump into a starvation diet and four hours of exercise every day – that could kill you! It’s important to do research. If you’re twenty-years old, in pretty good shape, but just need to drop a few pounds, your body can handle most of what you throw at it, but you still have to be smart. If you’re over thirty-five, though, you have to begin your weight loss plan slowly, especially if you’ve lived a fairly sedentary lifestyle for the past year or more. It’s vital to consider your health condition, too. Especially if you have a history of heart problems, diabetes or a number of other ailments, both minor and major.
There are basically two ways to lose weight: diet, exercise or both. Exercise can only go so far if you’re consuming too much food, or worse, the wrong kinds of food. Unfortunately, we have been programmed to think that good tasting foods are bad for you and if you want to lose weight you eat salads! That is complete nonsense. Preprocessed diet foods you find in the store are usually just smaller portions of plain-tasting food. They also contain all of the preservatives and other chemical nonsense that regular processed food contains. That’s not good.
One of the best diet plans I’ve discovered takes a new and comprehensive approach to which foods are not only tasty and low in calories, but nutritious and metabolism jump starters! Eating the proper foods at the right time will not only help you to lose weight fast, but the weight you lose will be fat, not muscle or water and, once it’s off, it will stay off forever, so the next time you need to “lose weight fast” you won’t have any extra weight to lose! It’s a regular fat-burning furnace.
Fat Burning Furnace also gives you quick and easy ways to tighten your abs, butt or any other body part you want to shine. And it doesn’t involve doing hundreds of crunches or hours of cardio. The reason these specific exercises work fast and easy is because they work in conjunction with the foods you’ll be eating. And these are all good-tasting foods, too.
