To lose weight fast you have to first be on a sensible diet and by this we mean:


1.Calorie intake is sufficient for your height and build.

2.Your diet is balanced ( no fad diets ) you will be eating protein, carbohydrate and healthy fats.

3.You will not be starving yourself and eating 3 - 5 portions a day.

The above are the 3 basics of any healthy diet and following the 3 tips below will ensure those extra pounds fall away even quicker!

Here then are the 3 most important tips to incorporate in a balanced diet to lose weight fast:

1. Drink Water

Let's start with the most important, but often neglected tip for losing weight fast drinking lots of fresh water. Still or sparkling it doesn't matter, but you must drink plenty of it. Why drink water?

1. Fends off hunger pangs

It acts as a natural appetite suppressant by keeping your stomach full and fending off dehydration. Many huger pangs are simply thirst signals linked to de hydration, so by drinking lots of fresh water throughout the day you will avoid these hunger cravings

2. Metabolizes fat

More importantly water helps your body metabolize stored fat by helping the kidneys flush out toxins waste.

When the body receives in sufficient water the liver which works to provide stored fat for energy switches to helping the kidneys, because of this extra burden becomes less efficient at metabolizing fat.

3.Burns calories

Drinking two liters of iced water a day burns about 60 calories.

The body has to work to raise that waters temperature to your body's temperature and this burns fat.

Don't like the idea of drinking lots of water? If this is the case go for sparkling and naturally flavored waters to make them more appealing.

2. Fiber Intake
Just like water, fiber rich foods bulk you up and make you feel full and are another great way to lose weight fast.

The average person could lose 10 pounds in one year just from doubling their fiber intake.

Fiber is found in plant foods. Our bodies are unable to digest it so it goes through the body without being digested.

When eaten fiber also eliminates calories by attaching to some of the protein and fat that you eat removing it from the body as well cutting your calorie intake in the process.

In addition, high fiber foods are typically low calorie and filling, so this will stop you reaching for foods with high calorific intake that will see you put on weight.

The average person consumes around 8g per day but 25g per day is optimum and there are plenty of choices.

Start with high fiber wheat based breakfast and make sure you have baked potatoes and brown rice as part of your diet, then supplement with the following foods:

Strawberries, apples, figs, chickpeas, broccoli, beans, and nuts a whole host of vegetables and fruits are good so up your intake.

3. Increase Lean Protein Consumption

Notice we said lean protein NOT Just protein. By this we mean generally avoiding to much red meat and meat that has high fat content.

With today's modern farming methods try and go organic and eat as naturally as possible:

Foods that have had the opportunity to grow naturally i.e free range chickens, non farmed fish etc.

These organic natural sources of protein will help you lose weight fast, but not intensively farmed varieties.

To lose weight fast, try eating these sources:

Low fat cottage cheese, low fat yogurt, skim milk, egg whites, any fish, prawns, chicken and turkey ( without skins ), lean beef ( keep in mind that lean only and not to much ), lentils, kidney beans and any soy products.

The benefits when eaten are:

1. Helps you feel fuller for longer

Lean Protein is a great help in losing weight fast, as it makes you feel full and satisfies your appetite for longer.

2. Prevents hunger cravings

Lean protein also prevents insulin spikes that lead to lack of energy, sugar and hunger cravings cravings.

2. Helps maintain muscle mass

Protein also helps maintain muscle mass which is crucial in the body's overall fat burning process.

Around 20 - 25% of your intake of calories can be in the form of lean protein.

So there you have 3 tips to help you lose weight fast that can be incorporated into ANY sensible balanced diet.

There are other foods and ways to help you lose fast but these are probably the 3 best in helping you lose weight longer term and keeping it off.
