5 Best Ways To Lose Weight

How to Lose Weight Fast

Cut Back on Sugars and Starches

The most important part is to cut back on sugars and starches (carbs). When you do that, your hunger levels go down and you end up eating much fewer calories (1Trusted Source). Now instead of burning carbs for energy, your body starts feeding off of stored fat. Another benefit of cutting carbs is that it lowers insulin levels, causing your kidneys to shed excess sodium and water out of your body. This reduces bloat and unnecessary water weight (2, 3Trusted Source).

Eat Protein, Fat and Vegetables

Each one of your meals should include a protein source, a fat source and low-carb vegetables. Constructing your meals in this way will automatically bring your carb intake into the recommended range of 20–50 grams per day

Protein Sources Meat: Beef, chicken, pork, lamb, etc. Fish and Seafood: Salmon, trout, shrimp, etc. Eggs: Whole eggs with the yolk are best.

Lift Weights 3 Times Per Week

You don't need to exercise to lose weight on this plan, but it is recommended. The best option is to go to the gym 3–4 times a week. Do a warm-up and lift some weights. If you're new to the gym, ask a trainer for some advice. By lifting weights, you will burn lots of calories and prevent your metabolism from slowing down, which is a common side effect of losing weight

You Don't Need to Starve Yourself to Lose Weight

How Fast You Will Lose Weight (and Other Benefits)

You can expect to lose 5–10 pounds of weight (sometimes more) in the first week, then consistent weight loss after that. I can personally lose 3–4 pounds per week for a few weeks when I do this strictly. If you're new to dieting, then things will probably happen quickly. The more weight you have to lose, the faster you will lose it. For the first few days, you might feel a bit strange. Your body has been burning carbs for all these years, so it can take time for it to get used to burning fat instead.
