Even though there are numerous diet programs and speciality fitness equipment readily available, I meet people every day constantly struggling with weight loss, more specifically, body fat loss. While most people would love to lose weight in the fastest time possible, most people have trouble losing any weight at all because they set unrealistic weight loss goals. If you are wondering what is best way to lose weight quickly, you may have tuned into the popular television show, The Biggest Loser, to see what methods the contestants are using. It’s easy to get the wrong idea about weight loss when you see the contestants dropping weight in double digits in one week. You have to remember that, while this programme shows real people losing real weight, they have a full time personal trainer pushing them 5 or 6 hours a day and must adhere to a strictly regulated program. In the real world, this simply isn’t possible for most people.

How Much Weight Loss is Safe?

While the figures vary on safe levels of weight loss, 2lbs a week is a pretty safe standard to follow. If you try to lose weight at a higher rate than this, it will be difficult to maintain this level for very long. If you lose weight any slower than this, you may end up getting frustrated.

You have to remember that weight loss is a process. You didn’t wake up one morning, suddenly 100 pounds overweight and you won’t lose weight in this manner either. Most people gain weight gradually, over time. Weight gain is often exacerbated by lack of exercise. What is the best way to lose weight quickly? Simply make healthier food choices and start moving your body. You will be amazed at what a difference this will make in how you look and feel.
