How to Successfully Lose Weight Quickly

How to Successfully Lose Weight Quickly

Today, it seems like everyone wants everything to happen at the speed of sound. Thanks to brilliant technological advances, this is possible in most aspects of our lives, but not when it comes to losing weight quickly.

Losing weight is a process that takes time and discipline. You can't just drop 20 pounds in two weeks or have 6 pack abs in a week. Unfortunately, you can’t will the weight to disappear either—without changing your diet and eating habits first.

Lose weight quickly by changing your diet and eating habits

Ever heard of the phrase, "abs are made in the kitchen?"

If you want that dream body you’ve always longed for, it’s time to start making some real, healthy changes.

Cut out the excess sweets:

We all have a sweet tooth, but some of us can't seem to help ourselves. Everyone has a food weakness and those are the foods that we tend to over indulge on, and nine-times-out-of-ten, that particular food is either high in sugar, sodium, fat, or carbohydrates. In order to lose weight quickly, you must learn to cut out your food temptations from your life.

Clean up your diet all around:

This is when you start making substitutions like balsamic vinaigrette instead of ranch dressing, grilled food instead of fried food, and sugar free options compared to sugar-filled diet busters. This is the tricky part because most people become accustomed to what they eat the most of. You may not be used to your new healthy food; but in order to lose weight quickly, you must give it a go and stick to your diet as much as you possibly can. Don’t worry. You can do it!

Learn how to cook or have someone else do it for you:

Learning how to cook is fun, but also time consuming. It’s very satisfying to cook the healthy food that is going to help you lose weight and feel great—but, it can also be overwhelming to find time to go to the grocery store and prepare healthy meals if you already have a busy schedule.

At bistroMD, we cook with nothing but the freshest ingredients and with over 200 recipes and a customizable menu, you should have no problem finding something tasty and delicious.

Every bite you take follows this proven approach for healthy weight loss. Our program provides 1,100-1,400 calories daily with 40-50% total caloric intake from lean, adequate protein, 20-25% of calories from healthy fats, and 30-35% from complex carbohydrates.

It only takes a few weeks to start seeing results. You don’t have anything to lose, but the fat! What are you waiting for?

We have a men and a women’s program with the option to receive five-or-seven-days’ worth of healthy meals delivered to your door. The two programs range from $130-$160 and EATS, our essential and tasty snacks are just $1.50 per snack. Women receive two snacks per day and men receive three snacks per day.

Make responsible decisions:

When you are trying to lose weight quickly, it’s almost always because you have a pressing commitment and want to look your best. Maybe it’s a friend’s wedding or a high school reunion. Stick to your goals and remember that YOU are in control.
