Tips for Losing Weight Rapidly and Safely

Most diets for fast weight loss call for you to spend hours working out each day or to start counting every single calorie you consume. While these strategies often do result in rapid fat shedding, you are also likely to fall off the wagon the minute you reach your target weight. The good news is that there are better ways to lose weight quickly. Not only can the right lifestyle changes help you to drop pounds fast, they can keep you from regaining them.

     Drink Lots of Water

Energy drinks, alcoholic drinks and even coffee with sugar all contain a ton of calories but without being as satisfying as food with that same amount of calories. In other words, they are a waste. Liquids that are high in sodium and carbohydrates also cause your body to retain water, which results in bloating. Since it has no calories and no sodium, water is the perfect beverage for losing weight. It also prevents water retention and kick starts your metabolism.

     Avoid Buying Snacks at the Grocery Store

If you stop getting candy and salty snacks when you buy your groceries for the week, you will have to make a trip to the store to get them. The inconvenience of having to go to the store just for snacks can sometimes outweigh your cravings.

     Prevent Water Retention

Potassium helps you to purge water so potassium-rich foods like bananas and oranges can help you to avoid water retention and bloating. You should also avoid produce like broccoli and peppers that make you gassy and cause bloating.

     Completely Avoid White Bread and Pasta
