First and foremost, there are a lot of diet plans on the market today that profess quick weight loss. In most instances, you should avoid these diet plans like the plaque. Most people who have decided to begin a weight loss plan have lots of pounds they want to lose. If this is the case, quick weight loss should not be an option. You should place your emphasis on a long-term, well-structured diet regime.
For those of you looking to lose just a few pounds for whatever the specific reason, perhaps you should consider fasting as an option. Fasting provides a quick weight loss of approximately five to fifteen pounds. While focusing on a quick weight loss fast, make sure you plan this fast to be short term. A simple five-day fast could be the answer for you to lose a few pounds to get into your wedding dress in a few weeks, that beautiful evening dress you bought for the theater, that little bikini you bought for your vacation in a couple of days, or any other reason you might have.
I found a great five-day fast that gave me phenomenal quick weight loss results. I had no immediate reason for quick weight loss but the five-day fast gave me the motivation I needed to jump start my long term weight loss plan. At the beginning of 2007, I resolved to lose eighty pounds during the year. Eight days into this year (2007), I had no idea of what or how I was going to accomplish this resolution. Furthermore, eight days into this year, I had almost forgotten about the resolution. I realized that I made a resolution that I would not even try to meet. I make almost the same resolution every year. This year (2007), I made the resolution a little more specific - 80 pound weight loss goal.
I tried the five-day fast and at the end of the five days, I had lost an amazing fifteen pounds. Of course, I knew that the scale was only portraying mostly water loss, but I was still elated with any weight loss. Why, because this was what I needed to get on track to meet my new year's resolution.
Quick weight loss should never hold your attention because if you lose weight too quickly, you are doomed to gain that weight back very quickly. It takes time to get your body and mind acclimated to a change in diet. Quick weight loss does not afford you the opportunity to get used to a change in eating or to a change in lifestyle. A five-day fast will introduce your body to change but it would be best to engage in a fast that would still provide the vital nutrients your body needs.
To be successful in your weight loss goals, you must first be in the right mindset. You must first understand how your mind is going to react to your plan of weight loss. The mind is the catalyst behind every action we do. Therefore, we must put our minds in sync with the weight loss program we have decided to undertake. Weight loss is a science, of sorts that has to be researched and analyzed in order to bring the desired results. Get your mindset to positive thinking about your weight loss. A five-day fast could possibly be the mechanism to achieve this feat. As long as your fast provides everything healthy for your body, it should be a breeze to get your mindset on positive results for the long term of dieting and exercising. Mental health is essential to body health.
Cast your mind to some positive benefits of weight loss:
1. You won't have to shop at targeted stores anymore. You won't have to shop at the "Big" stores for clothes. The stores that we label "little peoples' store" is within our reach.
2. Your body will feel much better because it is healthier. You will remove a lot of fat that surrounds your heart that is making your heart work harder.
3. Your pockets will be fuller. You will have more money to do other things with because you will have given up buying all the wrong things that were making you unhealthy.
Always keep positive thoughts about your weight loss in your mind. Never let the negative dieting thoughts enter. You will see that positive attitude will take you to a greater altitude for a much better aptitude.
Always remember to consult your physician before starting any weight loss program.
