Five Steps to Losing Five Pounds Fast

Five Steps To Losing Five Pounds Fast

Weight loss goals always start with good intentions, but if weight loss is not immediate, giving up feels like the answer.  To avoid falling off the wagon, try these five simple steps to achieving quick weight loss to ignite the spark necessary for creating a lifestyle over a fitness highlight.  Don’t let life get in the way.  Embrace the journey and make it part of your routine.  Your health will thank you.

Believe To Achieve

Having a goal along with the right mindset is half the battle.  Then, if you truly believe you can achieve this goal without unwavering your desire along the way, success is immanent.  Don’t shy away from visualizing success, professional athletes do it, so why can’t you?

Hydrate

Not only does the body function poorly when dehydrated, but also being in an optimal state for lean muscle growth and fat loss is unlikely while dehydrated.  To correct this, drink at least eight to ten glasses of water a day.  Do this daily along with the other tips and fitness excellence is next.

Eat Clean

By cutting out processed foods, sugar and simple carbs, weight loss is almost a sure thing.  Replace these items with lean meats, vegetables, fruit and other whole foods (don’t cut carbs right away but replace them with complex carbs) to promote a healthy, fat burning metabolism.

Exercise

Exercise most days of the week with two to three of those days being at a higher intensity (Workout Anywhere is perfect for this).  This combination will keep the metabolism stoked and ones body healthy and energized.  As well, this is a great way to burn off excess calorie stores (body fat or fat loss).

Have Realistic Expectations

For safe and optimal weight loss, the standard is one to two pounds off body fat per week.  Everyone loses differently and there will be fluctuations in water weight, but one to two pounds a week or five to ten pounds a month is realistic.   Now that you are ready to jump-start your weight loss, add these health habits daily to see how powerful small changes can be.  Drink more water, cut out processed foods, be realistic, exercise and believe in your goals and you can’t lose.
