Lose Weight Safely

Lose weight safely and steadily and it will stay off (if you continue your exercise program). If you lose weight this way, you are also building muscle and burning fat. Your body will gradually change to lean and toned. And, you will be healthy and look great. This process takes time and hard work folks! No quick remedies will give you the "killer body" you want.

I was reading this article about a fad diet, "Lose 18 Pounds In 4 Days." That's crazy and if you fall for that you will be sick and maybe hospitalized!

I have said this before so here it is again: losing weight and burning fat is not the most important thing in your life (it improves the quality of your life). Television commercials try to make you feel that way because they are trying to sell you their quick weight loss program! Don't buy in! These programs almost always lead you to yo-yo dieting and even more weight gain, frustration and bad health.

It is safe to lose about 2 pounds per week (on average) as a part of your exercise program. At the beginning of your program, you might lose more weight and then level off in later weeks.

So, if you want to lose 30 pounds the right way, expect it to take about 15 weeks. Your genetic makeup and compliance to your meal plan are two factors that could increase/decrease this time frame.

What is the right way to exercise? A combination of interval cardio exercise (3-4 days a week) and resistance training (at least 3 days a week) is a proven effective permanent fat loss/weight loss combination. Resistance training will cause the majority of your weight loss to be fat loss (increasing lean mass at the same time) and it will also speed up your metabolism.
