Weight Loss Online -- The Fastest & Easiest Weight Loss Plan
My first article provided steps for fast healthy weight loss. This was followed by my easy weight loss plan. So, if you combine the two, you'll have my Fastest Easiest Weight Loss Plan -- that you should never do!
Weight Loss Online -- Avoid Fast Plans
Fast weight loss plans cause diet shock. If you're not familiar with diet shock, read the article found at this link, Weight Loss Online--Diet Shock.
The faster you lose weight the greater the subsequent drop in your resting metabolic rate. Your body thinks it's starving and in order to conserve energy it will slowdown the metabolic rate. This translates into fewer calories burned on a daily basis, which in turn, creates a positive energy balance.
A positive energy balance is simply extra calories left over at the end of the day that you store as fat, yippee! Unless, of course, you eat less and/or exercise more to compensate for the extra calories brought to you by your own body's slower metabolism.
So, as you can see, you really shouldn't like fast weight loss plans...unless it comes from me. My plan allows you to lose weight at the fastest possible rate while minimizing your body's efforts to slow your metabolism.
Weight Loss Online -- Avoid Easy Plans
What's wrong with easy weight loss plans? Nothing. If a weight loss diet actually makes the weight loss process easier without setting the stage for weight re-gain (the inevitable weight gain after dieting) than by all means go for it.
Unfortunately and especially true for weight loss online, easy plans mean bad plans and lots of weight re-gain in the future. How? Easy usually means fast (see above on fast weight loss plans) and fast is usually achieved by severely restricting calories. Since you are basically starving, your metabolism slows and the weight re-gain chain reaction is on.
My easy weight loss plan will not slow your metabolism because I think it's wrong to starve. My plan is exactly what it's supposed to be...easy. It still works, but the work is easier to do.
Here is the plan for Fast & Easy Weight Loss Online...
Week One -- Cut calories by 100, do nothing else.
Week Two -- Cut additional 250 calories (total=350) and add a protein shake with mostly whey protein. For most people, replacing a meal with the protein shake will give a net reduction of about 300-350 calories.
Week Three -- Cut another 250 calories (total=600) and drink two shakes of mostly whey protein. The best time to drink them is in the morning and in the middle of your longest period of not eating. For me, I don't eat from 3 pm until 8 or 9 at night. So I will drink a shake in the morning and one around 5 pm.
Week Four -- Repeat week three.
Week Five -- Repeat week two by adding back 250 calories and drinking one shake.
Week Six -- Repeat week one by adding back 250 calories.Repeat the entire cycle until you reach your ideal weight.
If you follow the steps outlined above, you will lose weight at the highest rate allowed for healthy weight loss (4 pounds per week). Plus it's a breeze to follow.
We'll that's it for my fast and east weight loss plan. Now, once you start this plan, make sure you prepare for your real problem...weight re-gain.
