17 Weight Loss Tips To Burn Fat & Lose Weight Fast!

Here are 17 weight loss tips to help you lose weight fast, easy and simple. By following these tips you could say goodby to diets forever.

Everyone wants to lose weight super fast. We are not content with the miserable 2lbs of weight loss a week that the health professionals recommend, NO we want to lose weight now and at the speed of light, well, maybe not that fast! So to get you fat burning super fast here are a few weight loss tips you can put into practice.

17 Weight Loss Tips To Help You Lose Weight!

*1. Start the day with an energising breakfast.

I know you have probably heard this before, but breakfast is the most important meal of the day and you should never skip it.

Some people skip breakfast in the belief that it will help them lose weight, but in practice you are more likely to gain weight. Studies have shown that skipping breakfast is strongly linked to the development of obesity, and has proven that thinner people actually include breakfast in their daily food consumption.

Skipping breakfast is like running a car on empty. Your body needs fuel to function, and that fuel is food. Without it you will experience low energy levels, may feel nauseous, and will inevitably binge eat later on in the day. To avoid these symptoms and effortlessly lose weight the best advice is to eat breakfast when you awake in the morning.

A protein breakfast is the best choice and gives better results for fast weight loss. Although a high fiber breakfast will keep you feeling fuller for longer.

*2. Consume Fatty fish
2 to 3 times a week. Include Salmon, Mackerel, Tuna or Halibut. These fish provide good amounts of essential fats for a healthy metabolism which contributes to the speed at which you lose weight.

*3. Breads:
Breads are excellent source of carbohydrate, but if you choose the wrong type you can severely affect your weight loss efforts.

When consuming bread you should keep in mind that processed white bread and wholemeal bread can actually make you gain weight, and in particular increase fat around the belly. This happens because these breads rapidly raise your blood sugar levels leaving you fat and tired. They are ranked high on the glycemic index and will promote the oversecretion of insulin. In a nutshell, excess insulin = excess fat.

However, there is one type of bread you can eat; Rye bread. It has a stronger effect on the appetite than white and whole-wheat varieties. In one study those who ate Rye bread lost five pounds in one month without changing their usual diet. Rye bread also has a lower glycemic load and will release sugars into your system a lot slower than white and wholemeal breads, thus balancing out your blood sugars and aiding weight loss.

So to have your bread and eat it, choose Rye.

*4. Lemon tea.
When you get up in the morning instead of grabbing a cup of coffee have a glass of hot water with the juice of ½ a lemon. It's great to keep your blood sugar balanced and helps towards boosting your metabolism. This is a method used in many spas to help people lose weight.

*5. Grapefruit.
A great fruit to have in the morning is Grapefruit. A grapefruit halved, with a sprinkling of cinnamon or a little artificial sweetener will help curb your appetite.

*6. Berries.
Blueberries, cherries, raspberries and strawberries are all super speedy fruits. They have a high fibre content and are an excellent source of potassium, and contain few calories. Enjoy them with tub of very low fat natural yoghurt topped with a tablespoon of chopped natural nuts and you will feel satisfied and drop the odd pound or two!

*7. Apples
are full of pectin and will leave you feeling fuller longer. It is also a handy snack plus they are low in calories and an excellent fruit choice in any weight loss program.

*8. Iced Water.
Drink a glass of iced cold water before meals. It not only burns more calories and speeds up your metabolism but it also acts as a natural appetite suppressant.

The body requires extra energy to warm up your body to normal body temperatures after you have drunk a glass of cold water; and this expenditure of energy burns extra calories. So, drink an 8oz glass of iced cold water before each meal, and burn calories effortlessly.

*9. Soup.
If you do not want something cold try having a bowl of soup before meals. In one study it was found that people who consumed a bowl of soup before lunch and dinner lost more weight than dieters who didn't. See my thermogenic soup recipe below. You can drink this soup anytime as it contains negative calories. Make a batch on Sunday, it will serve for 3 to 4 days and then make another batch on Wednesday.

*10. Use Spices to stimulate your metabolism
It has been proven that spices like cayenne pepper; salsa, hot peppers and mustard stimulate the body's metabolic rate as well as effectively cleaning out the arteries.

Sprinkle cayenne pepper on your scrambled eggs; add salsa to salads or pasta. These are all natural thermogenic foods, experiment with the different flavours! Note: The hotter the spice the greater the metabolic boost but be sensible and use these hot extras according to your taste buds!

*11. Green Tea
is another metabolic booster, which also lessens your craving for sweet things.Green Tea's calorie-burning properties lies in the ability of EGCG to increase thermogenesis, or heat production. The EGCG in Green Tea increases the amount of calories burned throughout the day for all activities, from digesting food to climbing stairs to typing. Other food components, like caffeine or capsaicin in hot peppers) can also boost calorie burning, but EGCG has a stronger effect.
Green Tea is even more helpful to fast weight loss because it is concentrated.

*12. Tasty Food.
Make your food tasty and palatable by using spices like thyme, basil, coriander, parsley, ginger, onions and garlic. If you are trying to lose weight and you are eating bland, boring food you will soon give up, ditch the diet and return to old eating habits. But if your food is tasty and interesting you are more likely to stick to a diet regime.

13. Beans:
Use all the pulses, kidney beans, green beans, butter beans, chickpeas or split peas. They are an excellent source of protein which produces quicker weight loss and they are also filling and satisfying.

*14. Butter AndMargerine.
Do not use butter or margerine as a spread, they add unnecessary calories and margerine is manmade, has trans fatty acids and no nutritional value. Alternative choices to moisten bread are: 1 level tsp of reduced calorie salad cream, 1 tsp tomato ketchup or 1tsp reduced calorie mayonnaise. For a sweet taste try 1 tbsp marmalade or jam. All these alternatives are less calories than butter or margerine.

*15. Alcohol.
Avoid alcohol for the first 4 weeks of any weight loss plan, thereafter drink in moderation i.e. Twice a week is sufficient. Alcohol slows down your metabolism and therefore your weight loss will also be slower.

Choose a measure of spirits (gin, rum, vodka or whiskey) topped with copious amounts of diet soda instead of wine, beer, sparkling wines or champagne as these have greater amounts of sugar as well as being empty calories, and not beneficial if you are trying to lose weight.

*16. Appetite Suppressants. Use natural appetite suppressants such as Acai Berry or Green Tea Extract to help take the edge of your appetite. These supplements are great if you do not have great will-power to walk away from temptation!
