Weight Loss The Right Way

When you think of weight loss and losing weight, the first things that probably come to your mind are either those “lose weight fast !!” articles that are in every magazine and newspaper in the world that never work and are written by some personal training idiot that has no idea what they’re talking about… or maybe you’re thinking of all of those weight loss pills that claim to be safe and allow you to “eat whatever you want and still lose weight because the pill will do all of the work for you” or whatever stupid line they are using to get you to buy their useless unsafe weight loss product. Or, maybe you’re thinking of rice cakes and never eating and being hungry all day long.

Well, if you are thinking any of those things, forget it! Forget all of it!

What I am about to give you is totally FREE, detailed, easy to understand information on weight loss and losing weight and how to lose weight and fat without using any type of pill or supplement, without using some “fitness magazine” diet, and by eating not 1, not 2, not 3, but 5 meals a day! Sound impossible? Sound too good to be true? Sound like I’m going to make you buy my “book” or order my “product” first before I tell you? Well I’m not! I don’t have a book and I don’t a have product. I am not trying to sell you a damn thing! What I am trying to do, no… what I am GOING to do, is tell you exactly how you can lose weight. Enjoy…

Weight loss is simple, burn more calories then you consume. If you can fully understand that then you are on your way to losing weight. There are 6 simple steps. Here they are:

1) Count how many calories you eat in a normal day. That’s right, wake up, and eat like you would normally eat and count the calories in everything you eat and everything you drink and keep track of it on a piece of paper or on the computer some where. You might be thinking to yourself, “yeah right, I’m not gonna sit around counting calories all day.” Well, if you’re thinking that, then you’re obviously not dedicated enough to losing weight. If this is the case, then feel free to go waste your money on the newest useless weight loss pill. But, if you are dedicated enough to take 10 minutes out of your day and count the calories, then keep on reading.

2) At the end of that day, add up the number of calories you ate/drank. Be as exact as possible. Once you add it all up, you now have the total number of calories you consume daily. Also, weigh yourself.

3) Starting the day after you counted calories, eat 500 calories LESS then you normally do. So, lets pretend that the day you counted calories you counted 2000. For the rest of the week, you would eat 1500 calories a day. Understand? All you have to do is subtract 500 from the total number of calories you consume in a normal day, and eat this new number of calories every day for the next 7 days.

4) Instead of eating 3 big meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner), or eating all day all the time, spread those calories out over 5 smaller meals. Eat one meal every 2 and a half to 3 hours. Doing this will speed up your metabolism.

5) Cardio. Cardio is an important part of weight loss. If you’re serious about losing weight, but don’t want to do the cardio workouts, then you are requiring your diet to do all of the work. Jog, walk, swim, jump rope, ride a bike, take an aerobics class, whatever… cardio + proper diet = better than just doing one of the two. All it takes is 30 minutes a day, 3 – 5 days a week. I say 3-5 days a week because I don’t know if you have 5 pounds to lose, or if you have 50 pounds to lose. So, depending on how much your looking to lose, figure it out. 3 times a week is good starting point though.

6) At the end of that week, weigh yourself. You’ll notice a difference just after one week! Now, don’t expect to see a 20 pound difference. Losing anymore then 1 or 2 pounds a week is unhealthly. So look for a 1 or 2 pound weight loss at the end of the week. Don’t sound like much? You can lose 5-8 pounds a month! That’s around 75lbs a year! So if you have A LOT of weight to lose, you can lose it. If have just a few pounds to lose, you can lose it.

- THE BAD FAT MUST GO! Stay away from "bad" fat! Get rid of all the chips and candy. No more fast food, nothing fried. No more cookies, no more cake, no more of these saturated fats. There is no question about it and there is no way around it, get rid of these types of foods. Don't get me wrong, you should NOT be eating 0 grams of fat every day, but the only places you should be getting your daily fat intake from are lean meats (not the fried fast food kind), chicken (again, not fried!), etc. as well as the foods that contain the "healthy" types of fat, which can be found in just about every type of fish.

- LOWER THE BAD CARBS! Most people think that it is fat that makes people fat and that just by eating less fat, they are on their way to weight loss! WRONG! Certain carbs can be just as bad as fat when it comes to losing weight. Limit foods high in bad carbs. These carbs will eventually turn into fat. Foods like sugar, white bread, rice, pasta, potatoes, etc. are high in simple (bad) carbs. Sure, your body needs carbs, which is why foods like these are ok to eat, but don't go overboard. Stick to high protein/good carb/low fat foods like tuna fish (and other seafood), chicken breast, turkey, whole grains, fruits and vegetables etc.

- WATER! Drink water! Get rid of the soda, get rid of the beer, and get rid of the sports drinks. Drink around a half gallon a day, more if you can. Spread it out throughout the day, just like your 5 meals. Yes that's a lot of water, but it's that water that will give you energy and speed your weight loss.

- STRENGTH TRAINING! YES! Weightlifting isn't just great for muscles, it's great for losing weight. Muscles burn calories.

- Weigh yourself at the end of every week. If you ever have more then 2 weeks go by without losing 1 pound, it's time to change something. Eat 250 less calories then you've been eating. And keep everything else the same. Each time you see weight loss stop for more then 2 weeks, decrease calorie intake by 250 until you get down to where you want to be. Remember, NEVER starve yourself!

- Sleep! YES! Sleep! The easiest, yet most over looked step. Get at least 8 hours of sleep a night. Trust me, you're gonna need it!

There you have it. You now know everything you need to know about losing weight. You didn't have to buy any weight loss pills or books on losing weight, instead, you should use the money you just saved and go buy some good food or a gym membership.

Now, I never once said this would be easy. If it was easy, you would have done it already. Losing weight isn't something you can just do "on the side."  You are going to have to dedicate your mind and body and your time to doing it! So, you now have the information you need, all you have to do now is use it.

The Best Diet

How to decide?

Experts who counsel overweight patients say there are two keys:

Know yourself. That means being honest about what you will and won’t do, long-term.
Evaluate and pick the diet that best suits you, watching out for key phrases or promises that are probably too good to be true.
Choosing a weight-loss plan that’s going to work “takes some self-reflection,” said Amy Jamieson-Petonic, a registered dietitian who directs wellness coaching at the Cleveland Clinic and is a spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association.

“Are you an online type who likes to chat?” she said. “Or do you want a formal meeting?”

Some people find that plans that offer prepared meals help them stick to the plan because it takes the whole portion-control task out of their hands, said Suzanne Farrell, a registered dietitian in Denver who also is an association spokeswoman.

As far as accountability, Jamieson-Petonic said, it’s important to figure out if you’ll do all right by weighing yourself at home — and can be honest about it — or if you would do better by going somewhere where your weight would be charted by someone else.

“Think about and analyze how you currently eat,” said Judy Rodriguez, a professor of nutrition at the University of North Florida and author of The Diet Selector, in which she rates diets based on long-term flexibility and other factors.

“We are all unique in our food preferences, values, lifestyle, etc., so it seems like trying to ‘fit’ yourself into someone else’s plan is likely to have only short-term benefits, if any,” Rodriguez said.

Once you know what features you need in a weight-loss plan, look closely at the plans that seem to fit. And be sure that ones you are interested in are scientifically sound, Farrell said.

Key factors to look for, she said, include:

Does the plan include a variety of foods?
Does it include high-fiber foods?
Does it educate you on the value of foods that are low in saturated fat?
Does it tell you about “good” fats, such as olive oil?
In addition, Farrell said, “look for a plan that emphasizes physical activity and encourages eating regularly throughout the day.”

And watch out for claims and promises that sound too good to be true, Farrell added. A common one, she noted, is rapid weight loss. “It should be no greater than two pounds a week,” she said.

She’s also skeptical of plans that say no exercise is needed. Weight loss means a lifestyle change, she said, and maintaining the loss is best done by keeping an eye on food intake and on staying active.

Another red flag, Farrell said, is a plan that totally eliminates foods or food groups.

But whatever plan you choose, focus on making small changes to your eating and activity habits, Rodriguez said. Look at what you currently eat and then figure out how you could make small healthy changes.

Just substitute low-fat crackers for the doughnut you usually eat, she said.

“Do this for one to two weeks, then go back and make another small change,” Farrell said. “Keep doing this. Continuing self-improvement is a great thing.”

Then do the same for physical activity, she said. Try tracking the steps you take in a day with a pedometer, and then increase them.

The bottom line? The experts agreed that if your diet plan is suited to you, chances are you’ll follow it longer, take the weight off at a slow but steady pace and maintain the loss.

Supplements: what’s hot ?

Easily our favorite, we picked Apidexin because it is a fat loss pill, not a weight loss pill. Too many pills use extreme amounts of diuretics to make you lose only the water weight that you will put immediately back on. Apidexin has several clinically tested ingredients that have shown to burn fat in studies. This supplement has a powerful combination of patented ingredients and a 100% money-back guarantee. It really is not surprise to see it at the top of our list.

Phenphedrine is simply one of the most powerful supplements that we’ve ever reviewed. It is one of the only diet supplements that targets the hormones in the brain that cause hunger attacks and the desire to stress eating. It suppresses your appetite and increases your metabolism. It also increases insulin to deliver energy to your muscles while simultaneously decreasing body fat. By targeting hunger cravings where they start, Phenphedrine becomes one of the most powerful weight loss supplements on the market, and one of the few that has a unique approach to weight loss.

Liporexall incorporates a series of patented ingredients to perform several varied, yet important tasks. Super CitriMax curbs appetite, burns fat and results in significant weight loss without side effects. ChromeMate helps regulate the amount of sugar in the blood. Pinnothin significantly increases the release of the hunger-suppressing hormones sending signals of satiation to the brain and can help to control appetite. Phase-2 is an unparelleled carb blocker, made from an all-natural, non-stimulant extract of the white bean. It is the first clinically studied carb blocker shown to delay the digestion and absorption of starch calories.

DecaSlim was created by a college student in Hawaii after learning about 10 �super foods� on Oprah. He ended up with a phenomenally successful and powerful weight loss supplement that included antioxidant rich Acai and Green Tea, Flaxseed, Buckwheat, Soybeans and several other all-natural and incredibly potent ingredients. DecaSlim has an amazing track record of sales and a faithful and devoted fan base.

TestoRipped is a fast acting, powerful weight loss supplement for men. It contains several proven, safe and effective fat burners, such as Caffeine Anhydrous, Synephrine, Guggulsterones, Yohimbine and Cinnamon. What we really like about TestoRipped, however, is it lean muscle building ingredients. Creatine Ethyl Ester, Arginine AKG and Tribulus Terrestris work together to boost testosterone and increase workout intensity. TestoRipped is for men only.

SlendeSlim combines 7 patented ingredients like Slimaluma, Infinergy and Bioperine to make a supplement that suppress the appetite and send the metabolism into overdrive. SlendeSlim has a strong reputation and solid sales, but more importantly has amazing results. The company has a trimmed down, no-nonsense Web site and stands behind their product with the kind of resilience that convinces us that it is a company that truly believes in their products.

Lipofuze is packed with powerful products like Evodiamine and Razberi-K that have been proven to burn fat and increase metabolism. It has fat blockers, muscle builders and appetite suppressants. Most experts agree that it has the solid ingredient line up that shows that it is an effective weight loss pill. Users of Lipofuze rave about the results that they receive, some even burning off 10 lbs in 2 weeks. Not only that but Lipofuze backs their product for life. If at any point you aren�t satisfied, they�ll take it back.

Leptorexin focuses their ingredients into six different health profiles: Fat Burning, Euphoric, Superfood, Anti-aging, Cellular Detox, Lean Muscle, and Key Vitamins. It has a huge list of ingredients, and at the very least is guaranteed to make you feel better. By focusing specific ingredients on various deficiencies in the average diet, Leptorexin helps to balance out the metabolism�s normal functions. A little pricey to make it higher on the list, Leptorexin still has a high success rate and a high user-based rating. Also, because Leptorexin uses a �proprietary blend� and doesn�t reveal how much of each ingredient is in each pill, it makes it harder to rate higher.

Alli has a proven chemical fat blocker that essentially pushes lipids and fats straight through before your body has a chance to absorb them. Alli has documented results and is guaranteed to help customers lose at least a pound a month with no change in diet or exercise regiment. Though it is FDA approved, Alli is more expensive and less effective than several of the supplements that we have reviewed for this site. However, if you are looking for guaranteed minimal results, Alli is an acceptable choice.

These are in order from best to least best.
