Lose Weight Fast and Easy with bistroMD

Maintaining a healthy weight is important to ensure a long, healthy life; to reduce your likelihood of contracting certain diseases; and to improve your overall happiness and well-being.  With obesity on the rise in America, many people are looking for quick fixes to help them lose their excess weight.  These fad diets, diet pills and other weight loss methods offer false hope and are often unhealthy, unsustainable, and do not work.  And because of that, many people find it difficult to lose weight fast and easy.  However, it is not impossible either.  By understanding your body, improving your sleep, managing your stress, improving your diet, and adding some exercise into the mix, you can lose weight fast and easy.

Understanding your body

How old are you? What’s your gender? How about your ethnicity and your family history of diseases? Are you allergic to milk? Does the smell of flowers give you a headache?

There are hundreds of characteristics that differentiate you from the person sitting next to you.  Age, gender, ethnicity, and family history are obvious influences but other characteristics such as allergies, sense of smell, taste preferences and activity level all influence how we lose weight and metabolize food.  Therefore the first step to helping you lose weight fast and easy lies in what you already know and how you feel. 

Improve your sleep

Do you need multiple cups of coffee to get through the day? Are you hitting the snooze button more than once in the morning?  Are you always tired?

If you answered yes to the above questions, chances are you are not getting enough sleep; the average American is sleep deprived and as a result their health suffers.  When you are sleep deprived, you are more likely to make poor dietary choices throughout the day, drink excess calories through caffeinated beverages or energy drinks, and are less likely to exercise.  This combination can lead to weight gain and an unhealthy lifestyle.  By improving your sleep, you can have more energy, eat better and lose weight fast and easy.

Manage your stress

Excess stress caused by too many commitments, poor time management or personal expectations can play tricks on your mind and body.  When you’re stressed, your body metabolizes and stores food differently and you are more likely to indulge in unhealthy food to satisfy your cravings.  Together this can cause weight gain and poor health.  By managing your stress, you can lose weight fast and easy.

Diet and exercise

No talk about weight management is complete without mentioning diet and exercise: the two fundamental components of weight loss.  Poor diet and lack of exercise can be hindering you from losing weight fast and easy.  By improving your diet with simple steps such as avoiding soda and limiting fast food, you will be able to lose weight fast and easy.  Also by adding exercise to your daily routine, you’ll see the pounds fall off.

To lose weight fast and easy, focus on your health and wellbeing by understanding your body, improving your sleep and managing your stress.  Once you have those under control, fix your diet and exercise.  Also keep in mind that sustainable weight loss is defined as losing one or two pounds a week; by being realistic in your expectations, you will have better results.
