Is Fast Fat Loss Too Fast?

By Melonie Dodaro,

What The Weight Loss Industry Is Afraid Youíll Hear - Is Fast Weight Loss Healthy, Safe, and Possible?

These are great questions, and ones that seem to get lost when youíre in a rush to lose 10-20 pounds real fast before the wedding in three weeks or the high school reunion or some other big personal or professional event you have coming up.

Most people want to lose weight fast, so they look for quick weight loss solutions, preferably the kind that take place while you sleep or go about your daily routine. They look for solutions that do not involve changing their eating habits or exercise level. They look to diet pills, special teas and even powders that are supposed to curb their eating!

There are people who believe in ďfantasy diets,Ē and there are certainly plenty of quick fixes on the market found in magazines, on the Internet, watching TV, in flyers, and even on the sides of busses. Weight loss industry advertising is about putting ideas in peopleís heads that thereís a quick, easy solution; by taking this diet pill or supplement or using this machine or whatever theyíre trying to get you to buy, youíll look like the picture of a thin person or lose 20 pounds in 20 days!

In reality, there isnít any one thing that will make you lose weight fast, permanently or safely. Quick weight loss is a fantasy, an illusion that may cause your body harm, and mentally leave you feeling hopeless and defeated when you donít lose the weight quickly.

The Truth About Permanent Weight LossÖ

Achieving your ideal weight requires change and commitment. You must look deep inside at whatís been blocking you from losing the weight in the past. It requires changing your habits around eating and exercise. It requires you to love yourself. It requires you to believe that you deserve to live a healthy, happy, prosperous life. It requires you to expand your consciousness and your awareness and to be mindful of what youíre doing everyday while moving toward your ideal weight.

You need to remember that weight loss is a process. Youíre retraining yourself, deleting old habits and behaviors that got you where you are in the first place and creating new beliefs about who you are and the life you choose to live now. One more component that also comes into play is persistence. Even when you feel challenged, keep on going!

Developing Mental Resilience Begins with Some Basic Strategies That Can Help You Grow Stronger:

  • You donít get an award for bravery for going it alone, so join a support group or create your own.
  • You donít have to be perfect. Be excited about your small successes.
  • Be kind to yourself.
  • Stay away for an ďall-or-nothingĒ attitude when you want to reduce a significant amount of weight. Itís okay that you ate junk food; it doesnít mean youíve totally blown it.
  • Shake the idea that you must follow an extremely restrictive diet to reduce your weight; lighten up. Youíre changing your lifestyle, not simply trying to reduce your weight.

True Fact: Most People Who Successfully Manage Their Weight Donít Diet At All.

They make healthy, permanent lifestyle changes such as cutting back on overall calories, practicing portion control, making better food choices, finding a hobby that gets them outdoors, and reigning in emotional eating.

Successful weight loss focuses on weight management, not just shedding pounds.
Research concludes that 1 to 2 pounds is a healthy, safe, smart, effective amount of weight to lose in one week. Approaching weight loss slower inevitably develops long-term healthy habits that youíll use throughout your life, habits that will keep you healthy and keep the weight off permanently.

Slow and steady is whatís required to reach your goal and maintain your weight; you neednít waste your time or money and risk your health on quick fixes only to find out that they donít really work.
