Most people who aim to lose weight want to achieve their goal as quickly as possible. In fact, most diets fail because they simply don’t show results fast enough. Putting in lots of effort for little return causes people to lose motivation. In turn, we reach for comfort food to ease our negative emotions.
Moreover, most ‘quick fix’ diet plans leave you starving, unsatisfied and in the end, make you put more weight back on than you lost in the first place.
However, according to scientific research you can learn how to lose weight fast without either of the above consequences. I’m here to tell you how.
#1 – Cut Out Carbs
Cutting out carbs is one surefire way to lose weight fast by dumping the refined sugars and starches from your diet and in turn, using stored body fat as fuel.
White bread, refined grains and sugars all increase your insulin levels which is the main fat storage hormone in the body. These culprits leave your body continuously in fat storage mode, with increased hunger levels.
Without carbohydrates for fuel, your body is forced to use stored fat as fuel. Many people who cut refined grains and sugars from their diet see significant weight loss, as much as 10 pounds in the first week, without counting calories.
In fact, research has shown that a low carbohydrate diet is more effective than a low fat diet for women hoping to lose weight fast (source).
