Fast Weight Loss Plan - Intermittent Fasting Tops Them All!

I have been searching for a fast weight loss plan that is effective and easy to follow for years. After doing many different programs and getting varied results, I am going to touch on what I have found to be the best that there is.

For a weight loss plan to be effective, it will have to be easy to follow and cause you to lose significant fat, as well as provide lasting results. First of all, lets scratch off any of the fad diets and magic pills that never really work. If it seems too good to be true, it often is. I am more interested in showing you a fast weight loss plan that is not built on hype or results that depend on you buying a bunch of useless supplements.

To lose weight you need to have a calorie deficit

Of all of the different ways to lose weight, the common theme for any of them that work is causing a calorie deficit. In order to achieve weight loss, you need to use more calories on a consistent basis than you are taking in. It is pretty cut and dry and obviously no secret. All diets are geared towards you cutting calories in some way.

The problem with most diets though is that they are too hard to follow and you don't have much of a chance of sticking with them long term. If you need to depend on straight will power and desire to stick with your diet, you may as well quit now.

Regardless of how strong you start out, maintaining that same level of desire is not realistic. The fast weight loss plan that I mention below does not require you to be strict for any prolonged periods, which makes it much easier to follow.

The right diet as well as a proper exercise routine are key to any weight loss plan

Exercise is a key part of any weight loss plan also, and an effective diet along with the proper exercise routine will really kick your fat loss in to high gear. Once you have your diet straightened out, you should do some form of resistance training for maximum fat loss.

Most people think of walking or running on the treadmill when they decide to lose weight. I think that the treadmill may have its place in your plan but you should first get on an effective resistance training program. This will be the topic of another article though. For now, I am going to focus on the diet part of the equation.

Intermittent fasting helped me to lose 31 lbs

In my experience, intermittent fasting is the most effective way to cut your calories and cause weight loss. If you are not familiar with this term or do not know what intermittent fasting is, you will be pleasantly surprised when you discover how easy and effective it is.

Personally, I have been fasting for weight loss for around eight months. I went from 201 lbs on January 1st to 170 lbs in July of this same year from intermittent fasting. I lost 31 lbs in less than seven months and have never looked better. At the time of this article, I am 41 years old and am leaner than I have been since I was in my early twenties.

I think the reason that intermittent fasting is so effective is because it allows you to eat every day and pretty much eat how you normally do in between fasts. Of course the better you eat, the better your results will be, and your overall health will also improve.

But the key to remember is that if you change nothing else about your current diet and just add in fasting, you will still lose weight. This is why intermittent fasting is the best weight loss plan that I know of.

The ins and outs of this type of fasting are too broad to go over in this short article but I invite you to learn more about it and how effective it has been for me at my blog, Fitness Overhaul.

Diet Tips Weight Loss Plan

There are thousands of diet tips, weight loss products, solutions, guarantees, gimmicks and promotions on the market right now. And they all promise the same thing, success. And they all take your money in exchange for hope that a new you will emerge.

Losing weight is not the stuff of rocket science so why do we need thousands of options in ways to do it? It's because 95% of dieters fail long term at keeping the pounds off. Pretty staggering failure rate, 95%. Care to ask why?

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."
--Aristotle

Food is not the problem, and it's not the cure. Your habits and their underlying triggers are what drives you to food and keeps you fat. So unless you change the things you do and how you relate to yourself and the world, you'll keep getting what you've always gotten. Fat and fatter.

Diets don't work long term. Diets target food as the culprit and the cure and ignore what really matters, the unseen universe of the mind where your thoughts and feelings maintain control of your habits.

Mind is the control center from which everything in humanity flows. Your participation here is fundamental to any change in you. There is NO option to ignore the mind part of you because the habits you lived before the diet are not dead. They will return along with your weight.

The untold truth is when the diet ends so does weight loss as you return to familiar response patterns and weight gain. You need to learn new skills that empower you to better manage your lifestyle and make choices that serve you.

What's the answer? In one word, you! And it's been you all along. Dismantle habits, lose weight and feel great doing it by learning new skills that empower you to live your life and make choices that serve you.

The diet and weight loss plan and tips coming on this blog are not the typical diet stuff that's out there now. If you want a how to diet manual, this is not it. Women already know how to diet. Truth is women are champion dieters, gold medal winners having tried every diet out there since Moses. What they don't have and need are the skills to keep it off.

This blog champions that missing information to permanent success and gives it to you. What you do with it and how far you take it is up to you; still you will know the path and where it leads.

The information is not new. Perhaps you've heard some of it or even all of it before but that doesn't diminish its power to change your life because it will. Women, including me, who've used this information are in control of their choices and their lives. Talk about freedom!

Stick with my blog and I promise a toolkit of powerful learning skills to conquer your cookie monster and find your Mojo. What's mojo? It's winning mindset. It's you in control ready to make life happen, establish new boundaries and create new outcomes. Right now, outcomes create you and it's not giving you what you want. That's about to change with this no fluff, no frills and frankly, no thrills information that will change your life.

For women who are ready and committed to make life happen, hold onto your socks, it's blastoff time.
