Quick Tips For Losing Weight Fast In a Healthy WayPosted: February 1, 2012
Discount Spectrum Spectra/Por 2 RC – We’re approaching the end of our first month in 2012, and no doubt people are scurrying to the scales to see how much weight has fallen off. Because of this, we found it fitting that our first post should involve weight loss tips. We all know someone, if not ourselves, who’ve tried the latest fad diets. But, what do these “diet sensations” really have to offer? The truth is, diets are temporary and most people resort back to bad habits after accomplishing a short term goal. If you want to lose weight fast and keep it off, here are a few tips that will lead you in the right direction.
Stick to water – Yeah, we’ve heard it all before. We’re told to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. What many people may not know, however, is that a good rule of thumb is to take your body weight and divide it by two. What you’re left with is the amount of ounces you should be drinking. For the sake of simple math, here’s an example of a person who is 210 lbs: 210/2=105. That person should be drinking 105 ounces of water which is equivalent to about 13 glasses of water. Saying no to soft drinks, even diet ones, and sticking to water will help you reach your weight loss goals even quicker!
Stick to lean meats – Fuel your diet with chicken, fish, turkey, and lean ground beef. Try grilling these meats, instead of frying them. Drizzle olive oil on Tilapia and season it to taste, then slap it on the George Foreman grill. It tastes great, and it’s good for you! If you don’t have a George Foreman grill, you should definitely invest in one or it’s counterpart. It’s a great way to get your meats cooked with less fatty grease.
