We all like to lose weight fast when dieting. In fact, we will go to extreme lengths. Including, magical pills that you take and poof, the weight has gone!
I don’t want to crush your dreams but there is no magic pill. however, there are many companies that claim they have such a product.
Firstly, in this post, we will reveal telltale signs of what to avoid. Secondly, we will give you some sound advice for fast weight loss.
Lastly, we will recommend a safe and speedy weight loss programme.
How To Spot Fast Weight Loss Scams
Fortunately, Google had a massive clamp down on weight loss pills. However, this was more aimed at paid ADs and not products or websites.
Although this may be true, there are some telltale signs to look out for. See below.
- Unrealistic claims
- Extreme restrictive diet ( anything under 800 calories is super dangerous)
- Main focus is supplements
- Encourages you not to exercise
- Powerful wording such scientific breakthrough and guaranteed weight loss
Granted, there are some accelerated weight loss plans out there that are not scams. In fact, our most recommended diet comes across “scammy”. When I first found 3 week diet I thought “here we go another scam”.
Nevertheless, you have to be careful. The reason being when we are desperate to lose weight it’s easy to fall for lies.
The problem is this. we are bombarded on a daily basis how we should look. Especially woman. Moreover, try walking into a store and looking at the magazine stand. what do you see?
Correct, thin woman and muscley men.
Clever Fast Weight Loss Marketing
These company’s know we will do as little as possible to achieve that magazine look. They know we are timed deprived. Furthermore, they know we are desperate to look “thin”.
Hence, why you will see the powerful wording. “lose weight fast” “lose 5 inches in 7 days” ” try this one weird trick overnight”.
They market to our emotions and hit us where it hurts, they know how conscious we are about the way we look.
Notably, in my 12 years of weight loss experience, I haven’t met one person to succeed long term with fad diets. Yes, they lost weight fast. However, this generally happens when you starve yourself of nutrients.
So What Does Work For Fast Weight Loss?
My belief is education. specifically, three main areas.
- Food & Diet
- Hormone control
Firstly, not all exercise, food, and diet are equal. Shortly, we will let you in on the best-kept weight loss secrets.
Secondly, to lose weight fast you have to find something you enjoy. As a result, if you are having a good time and fun you will stick to it. Remember, we are all different and that’s ok. What works for one may not work for another.
about food and promoting exercise that is enjoyable, we are all different and that’s another thing id like to point out about these crash diets promoted online they don’t find out about what your needs are.
Programs out there such as weight watchers and slimming world do really well at educating people about food and weight loss. I will be doing reviews on these programs to outline the pros and cons and if it will be suitable for your lifestyle.
Something I believe is overlooked especially by females, is Protein this is mainly due to the myth of females getting big muscle, this isn’t true, it takes a long time and hard work to develop big muscles and even longer in females, the reason why protein is good for weight loss is unused energy from protein doesn’t convert into fat and is fantastic at preserving and promoting lean muscle, and that my friends are what you want.
Drinking more water is also crucial for weight loss. in fact, it’s been discovered that we sometimes confuse the feeling of dehydration with hunger. A good indicator of dehydration is that if you’re feeling thirsty you’re already in early stages of dehydration so that said don’t wait until you need a drink! drink little and often through the day. you will be surprised how much this will help.
This goes without saying. however I will say it anyway EAT LESS! if you are like me and you go to the cupboards when your board and snack on calorie rich treats your putting more calories in your body than is needed and if you’re also like me and put weight on your bum and belly you start looking like a duck.
To answer the question is it possible to lose weight fast?” absolutely…… but losing weight fast with so-called magic pills, diets and whatever else these scrupulous company’s are promoting isn’t going to work long term and that is what we want for a better quality of life and still being able to enjoy that nice scrumptious chocolate bar.
Try something a bit more sustainable such as weight watchers or reducing carbohydrates and upping protein intake, another good technique that many people have had success with is counting calories there are so many ways to lose weight without turning to faddy diets that won’t lead to anything but you losing pounds from your pockets and not your belly.
Would love to know if you have ever tried any fad diets or magic pills, leave a comment below.
