What are some ways to speed up your weight loss?
Topic: What are some ways to speed up your weight loss?
January 18, 2020 / By Teresa Question:
I have been working out A LOT for almost 2 months and I have lost some weight (inches more than pounds), but I would still like to lose more. I fear I am hitting a plateau. And that is the last thing I need right now since I will be going to the beach in 3 weeks time. So what are some ways to really speed up your weight loss besides the obvious answers of working out more, drinking more water,etc.? I do all that already. I don't know how much harder I can work out than I am already.
I do tend to do the same kinds of strength training workouts and cardio workouts. I really don't want to change these workouts though...if at all possible.
So, any tips? Thank you in advance!

I would suggest dieting :)
Watch your calorie intake. Lots of calories condensed into small things is bad. (for ex., cookies. One cookie is 100 calories. But one bowl of progresso soup is also 100 calories)
The most helpful foods to eat are definately
unbuttered popcorn (only 70 calories when you stuff a sandwich bag full of it)
Frozen bananas (delicious, low in calories, healthy and filling)
Eating half a sandwich for lunch, instead of a whole one. (Avoid using mayonaise or loads of cheese.)
*hamburger rolls have the same amount of calories as are in a single slice of white bread. Try using them for your sandwiches.
Avoid eating too much bread, especially white. Limit it to lunchtime.
Watch your portions. Eat three meals a day with a snack that is below 100 calories.
And take a day off every few days and indulge a little. I've found this actually helps a bit. It makes your body used to more food, and your diet becomes more affective
You will find yourself losing weight within a week of starting as long as you stick to it

I believe there are no magic pills that i would bother with, they might seriously mess up your health. However eat meals frequently and in smaller portions to keep your metabolism lower as well as working out frequently, the more muscle mass you have the more calories you burn while doing absolutely nothing. Also breakfast is very important to not skip because that is what starts your metabolism in the begging of your day. I might look into creatine it is apparently sort of a misconception for bulking up and actually acts as a very mild laxative however it contributes to water retention but helps with muscle endurance if you plan on hitting the gym alot. Good luck!
pick up a 5 or 10 pound weight at the gym and visualize that weight coming off holding the weight in your hands helps bring home just how heavy even 5 pounds of extra fat can be

Well for starters it is not healthy to loose more than 2 pounds a week. A person that has more fat to loose will loose it faster and then they start to loose it slower as they become a lighter weight. If you want results that will last you don't want speed.
Another thing you need to know is that muscle weighs more than fat. I recommend you get a pinch tester and keep track of your body fat percentage instead of your actual weight. I know you are still young but if your parents allow it you should do some weight training. If not do some push ups, crunches, squats, etc. Muscle mass boosts your metabolism which will help you loose fat. Just remember that gaining muscle will have an effect on the numbers on the scale because muscle weighs more than fat.
Sugar Busters is a very good program to follow and it will alter the way you select food for the rest of your life. It focuses on the idea that your body needs fat in it's diet but it does not need all the added and hidden sugars that are in many products. It's a healthy diet that is often recommended by trainers and doctors.
Good luck, keep at it and remember to be patient.
