I am often asked how quickly you should lose weight. It often baffles me because I have seen so many headlines over the years about losing weight ultra fast and often thought they were just there to sell a newspaper or a magazine. The reality is with weight loss is that it is a short term goal to lose weight but a lifelong goal to keep it off. This means that you need to think in terms of lifestyle. You need to get into the habit of eating the right food and exercising in a fun effective way. If you do this the speed that you lose your weight really doesn’t matter.
If you are even slightly over weight you have most likely gained it over months and if you are heavily over weight you will have done it over years. Why focus on getting it off so quickly. If you have gained a few pounds then you could for example lose a stone in a month or two as shown at www.colinmstone.co.uk. It can be done but it is far better to get into a normal routine of having healthy meals that you can continue to eat long after the extra pounds have gone.
The same goes for exercise. There are a number of great benefits of exercises of which losing weight is only one. It is great for meeting like minded people or for having some de-stress time. So long after the flab has been removed exercise can still play a big part in your overall health and fitness. By going at it for a month flat out you may lose the weight but you also run the risk of injury or worse still getting fed up with what you
The reality is that quick weight loss is great and it makes people feel fantastic to see the scales drop but what needs to be remembered is that it is fat you want to lose and for that you need a healthy diet and good quality exercise that promotes strong functional muscles. This is not something that can be done in a few weeks but something that needs building over the course of months. Only then can you build a body that you can be proud of.
So forget losing weight fast and get down to losing it steadily. Get your diet right and you can still lose a stone in a few weeks steadily and in a healthy manor.
