Quick Weight Loss is a Short Term Fix

Serious weight loss requires a strong and realistic mental approach, it's no good thinking that you can jump straight in, starve yourself for a month and come out the other end looking like Jessica Alba. It is no good starting a diet
with the solitary goal of losing weight quickly, and in any case, it is very easy to achieve quick weight loss, well for the first two to three weeks anyway.

Most people do not know or have chosen to ignore the fact that weight loss is in fact a long term lifestyle change rather than a quick weight loss competition and in order to achieve the best long term results, a concerted effort must be made to change the two factors that affect your weight.

1. Diet:
You are what you eat. If you eat nothing but food drenched in fat inevitably you will be fat, unless, of course, you were born with an unbelievably high metabolic rate, in which case you will be the envy of every woman in the world!

There are hundreds of weight loss plans and diets for sale that promise quick weight loss and I will let you in on a little secret about them, they ALL work! Every diet or weight loss plan that promises quick weight loss is designed to do just what it says, but here's the catch, that is all they will do. There is no continued weight loss after an initial period, only an immediate bodily reaction to a reduced intake of calories.

They all work in the same way, they all reduce drastically the amount of calories the body was consuming before the diet was started. The body takes two to three weeks to adapt to burning calories at the new lower level and during that time it has continued to burn the calories at the older, higher rate, hence great and sometimes astonishingly quick weight loss.

The only way to achieve long term weight loss is to change the foods that you eat and the way that you eat them.

2. Exercise:
Forget the idea that cutting out fat alone and dieting hard will get you the results you crave, to achieve permanent lasting weight loss exercise is key. One of the best forms of exercise that increases metabolic burn is weight training.

The common belief is that weight training is for men and that women will lose their femininity by working out with weights, nothing could be farther from the truth. Women's muscles don't grow in the same way as men’s do because of the lack of the male hormone testosterone; not only that, but we all tend to see images of female bodybuilders in our heads rather than the aforementioned Jessica Alba why? Most of the female celebrities we see on the big screen or on the TV work out with weights, and the reason is that they are the most effective method of controlling weight through exercise.

The better physical shape you are in the better you will burn fat and the healthier you will be. Your sleep will improve as will your stamina, immune system and most importantly to many women, the tone and condition of your skin!

There are quick weight loss plans however that are designed to help people lose weight quickly initially and then steadily until you reach your desired goal. They use methods that fool the body into burning more calories than the body has ingested.
