The Most Effective Way To Lose Weight
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

People looking to lose weight should understand that the most effective way to lose weight is not necessarily the quickest way. The most effective way to lose weight should be a way in which the weight can come off and come off permanently but should also come off in an acceptable period of time.

The reason I am saying that the weight should come off permanently is that many people just look for a quick fix to their weight issues, but a quick fix is not necessarily the best way to go about losing weight. We have all heard about people who go on a diet and lose a massive amount of weight only to gain it all back again. The reason for this is that they probably went for some crash diet that damaged their metabolism and only made it easier for them to gain weight. Oprah is one of them. Even 50 Cent went on a crash diet to lose weight for his movie. His reasons were different because he planned to gain the weight back as soon as he had finished with his movie. What is interesting about 50 Cent is that he gained his weight back in a short period of time, but this is what happens with many people who want the weight to stay off permanently.

The most effective way to lose weight aims for a moderate amount of weight shedding every week. By moderate we mean that you should aim for about 2 pounds a week. Losing weight at this rate using the right methods means that you can keep the weight off and in about 3 months you will find that you would’ve lost about 20 pounds. Now that is some serious weight loss!

The key to effective weight loss is your diet. There is no need for any type of fancy formula. You have probably got your exercise regime straightened out, but most likely your diet is lacking and that is where many people fall short. The best type of diet consists of foods that have negative calories. This means that many, if not all of the calories present inside the food are used up when the food is being digested. This leaves you with very little excess calories left. What this means is that you will feel full hence there is very little need for you to eat more than you should and you will also be burning calories in the process which is also what you are trying to accomplish with exercise.
