    Hi Jasmine,

    Losing weight fast and in a healthy way is not as hard as people think. In fact, it can be pretty easy. Just cutting soda and sugary drinks from your diet COMPLETELY is just one awesome way to lose weight fast easy and healthily. (I lost 10 pounds alone only with that one change) That along with the other tips I’m going to share below (all are very safe and healthy) and you will be on your way to easily losing the weight and keeping it off.

    As cliche as it may sound you gotta eat your veggies. They are amazingly good for you, also raw nuts (almonds are best) fruits, and 100% whole grain breads instead of white flours (white flour is very bad for you, read up on it if you get the chance!) Try and stay away from fried foods and fast food as much as possible, and other empty calories and foods that provide you no nutrients, like ice cream/candy/cake etc. Common sense goes a long way with what foods to eat and how to be healthy, so use it 🙂

    Building healthy eating habits and keeping the weight off in the long term is what you should really strive for. Also, make sure you don’t count calories, it can drive you CRAZY! Just eat GOOD calories, and when your satisfied, stop eating. Try to eat more meals a day and portion them smaller, it really is proven to speed up your metabolism and burn fat way faster. If you mix this in with the other things I’ve shared, you will be on your way to easily losing weight and keeping it off.

    Just be persistent, set goals, make little changes and stick with them. You will get to where you want to be. You really have to want it, I did, and I’m at my goal weight now. Please check out my blog, I think you will enjoy the information and my weight loss story. The link is below and best of luck hon.

    It’s just not sensible to start a weight loss plan without first considering an important question: Is the weight I want to achieve realistic for my body? Answering this question truthfully will go a long way in preventing frustration down the road.
    Hopefully, you have already talked to your doctor about your weight, you should have a healthy weight goal in mind based on what she told you.
    If you haven’t seen a doctor yet, you can find reliable height and weight charts at your doctor’s office or a local hospital wellness center. You can also access some, like the one the USDA provides, online.
    Rather than setting a “magic number” as your goal weight, give yourself a range within about five pounds of your healthy weight.
    If you have a lot of weight to lose, consider making mini-goals of five or 10 pounds every six weeks to two months rather than focusing on your end weight.
    As a rule of thumb, you should weigh yourself once a week as you diet. You should try to weigh yourself at the same time each day to get consistent readings as your weight can vary throughout the day.
    Your BMI
    Your doctor may also assess your BMI. BMI is the most widely-used form of weight-tracking today. It helps health care providers measure your risk for weight-related health issues.
    You can find out your own BMI with a simple formula:
    Divide your weight in pounds by your height in inches squared. Multiply by 705.
    For example, consider a woman who is 5’6″ and weighs 190 pounds:
    Height of 5’6″ = 66 inches
    66 squared (66 x 66) = 4,356
    190 divided by 4,356 = 0.0436
    0.0436 x 705 = 30.75
    This individual’s BMI would be rounded up to 31.
    BMI is categorized as follows:
    •Less than 18.5–underweight
    •18.5 to 24.9–normal weight
    •25 to 29.9–overweight (Individuals who fall into the BMI range of 25 to 34.9 begin having some health risk concerns.)
    •30 or more–obese
    •40 or more–morbidly obese

    I have been through it all and know what’s it about. The main thing is to stick in there. You can’t be an addict to food and never exercise if you want to live a healthy life and keep the weight off. I’ve worked out, done every diet, and all types of classes.

    Nothing works, besides dedication and intelligence towards the subject of losing weight.

    First, depending on how much weight you need to lose, your diet is the first concern. You can’t eat 10,000 calories a day and expect the weight to come off, even if you are exercising a lot. Which brings us to the next thing. Duh, Exercising…

    This is a must especially if you need to a lot of weight. Get at least 30 mins of some good hardcore exercising. Do some cardio, in the long run, it’s good for the heart.

    However, I find the most hardest part of losing weight/keeping it off, in my diet. It’s so hard to keep your fingers out of the cookie jar or those chocolate goodies. I’ve found a great addition to help any one out, it’s a natural weight loss supplement called Proactol. Now don’t get all crazy on me and say diet pills don’t work. That is true, but not in this case. This one isn’t meant to burn pounds while you sit on the couch. It’s an appetite suppressant, along with being a fat binder. I saved money on the pills at theweightlossplace.com along with getting some good info. It basically makes those fingers not go towards the cookie jar. For me it’s the best pill I’ve tried and I’ve tried cupboards full. Now this doesn’t mean you have to follow my foot steps but I’ve successfully lost roughly 70 pounds and keeping it off til this day.

    Well good luck and remember what I said, Dedicate.

    If you want to lose weight fast then you must learn to eat foods which have fat burning properties, and these are foods which keep your blood sugar level more stable throughout the day.

    You see, if you eat foods which cause your blood sugar level to spike upwards too sharply then you’ll feel “energetic” for a short while — but then afterwards your blood sugar level will drop way too low and you’ll feel tired and lethargic for the rest of the day.

    The higher your blood sugar rises after a meal, then the lower it will drop afterward. …And when it drops you’ll feel tired and hungry all over again. This is why obese people often suffer from “highs and lows” in their energy level.

    But if you begin eating fat burning foods (which keep your blood sugar level stable throughout the day) then your energy will be steady all day long, you’ll have plenty of energy and you won’t ever feel tired of lethargic.

    Also, when your blood sugar level is kept stable then your body’s natural fat burning engine will begin burning more fat tissue. That’s why these are called “fat burning foods”.
