Can Quick Weight Loss Really Work?
by: Anna Dedrick
Quick weight loss is promised by diets all the time. "Lose
10 pounds over night," the ads will scream. Most
people know in the back of their mind that quick weight
loss is either not healthy or is a short term fix.
Most quick weight loss pounds are only water. Your body
will flush water out of your system and the scale will
show a quick weight loss of 3 to 10 pounds. The quick
weight loss is however short lived. The second you drink
any fluids your body will hold the water and your quick
weight loss will disappear.
The short tem success of quick weight loss in a low carb
diet is also this loss of water. Dieters are excited when
they see the quick weight loss however this excitement
is short lived. Once carbs are introduced back into their
diet, boom, there goes the quick weight loss.
Instead of being suckered into all the quick weight loss
claims, why don't your try these common sense weight loss
tips to use when dining out to help you achieve long term
success. You won't see a quick weight loss by following
these tips but you will see some really great long term
changes in your body.
1.) If you must have a dessert, split it with a friend.
2.) Start your meal with soup and a salad. If you fill
up on healthy foods first, you may eat less of the high
3.) Immediately ask for a box to go and place half of
your meal in it. Not only will you cut calories but you
now have an entire additional meal for later.
4.) Ask for non-fat or low-fat dressing on the side when
ordering your salad. You can then control the portion
size. A high calorie dressing can add 200-400 additional
calories to your health salad.
5.) At a fast food restaurant, always order the small
size. Did you know a super size French fry at Mc Donald's
is 29g grams of fat and 610 calories??
Once again, these simple restaurant tips will not result
in quick weight loss but if you start using these and
other weight loss tips every day, you will start seeing
the long term success you truly deserve. Always think
long term and don't be tricked by diets that promise "incredible
quick weight loss".
