Quickest Way To Lose Fat
In this age of instant gratification, it’s hardly surprising to know that an increasing number of over people are looking for the quickest way to lose fat.
In fact, this topic has gained widespread media attention in recent years. With approximately 120 million Americans being over, I can assure you that this topic will remain in limelight at least for the foreseeable future.
So what exactly is the quickest way to lose fat, you might ask. If we go by all the media hype then we have to conclude that the answer lies somewhere between a new magic loss pill and some random revolutionary diet which will give us the ultimate slim figure before we can bat an eyelash.
Scams Don’t Work, So What Does?
But in your heart of hearts you know that these things do not work. In fact many a times they will do you more harm than good.
The reason that such ‘Weight loss systems’ are bound to fail is because they focus more on decreasing body rather than lowering the body fat.
The two are not one and the same and anybody who’s telling you otherwise, while selling their loss program, is a straight out liar. You will do yourself a favor by running away from them as fast as you can without ever looking back!
The above ‘miracle methods’ work only for some time during which your body starts losing water and it gives you a sense of satisfaction that you have ‘lost’ some . In reality, you will gain this ‘lost’ within a few days and after that perhaps even gain some more to make your condition even more miserable. The way to get out of this dilemma is to focus on losing body fat. In this way you’ll not only preserve but also gain muscle mass with an additional advantage of it being a long term effect.
Quickest Way to Lose Fat – Eating and Exercise
Now that we have put all the ‘miracle methods’ aside, its time to focus on our original question of quickest way to lose fat.
The quickest way to lose fat is NOT easy. I say so because you are limiting yourself on the time parameter while expecting quick results. Quick loss is achieved by combining the right diet along with following an optimum exercise schedule.
When we talk of diet then you need to control the amount of calories that you intake on a daily basis. Moreover, you need to eliminate all kinds of junk and sweetened foods such as fast food, beverages and soda.
Notice I say ‘Eliminate’ and not ‘reduce’. This will of course be difficult if you’re a huge fan of fast food but then you’re also looking for the quickest way to lose weight, isn’t it?
Quickest way to lose fat – Eating
Moreover, your diet will now be composed of small 4 to 6 meals on a daily basis. These small meals should be taken after every 3 hours (approximately) and you must suppress your hunger in the meantime. Don’t give in to your taste buds and start munching high calorie foods like fried/French fries, potato chips etc. All your efforts will be in vain if you can’t control your urges.
Your ‘Small meals’ should consist of portions rich in protein, complex carbs and healthy fats. High Glycemic carbohydrates should be avoided at all cost and you must drink a lot of water during the interval between your meals. This water will also act as a filling agent and hence will control your urges thereby minimizing the calorie intake in your body.
Fastest Way To Lose Fat – Exercise
Regular exercise is inevitable for quick loss. You’re not required to sweat out excessively at the strength training machines at the gym. Instead, you have to focus on high intensity interval training exercises.
You must focus on adding muscle mass to your body while getting rid of body fat at the same time. This can best be accomplished by increasing the number of repetitions and decreasing the lift while doing any exercise.
Just as I have always said, the fastest way to lose fat is by eating small healthy meals often and getting plenty of exercise. This may not sound like magic but it definitely works.

Fad diets never work.The article is spot-on save for one part only.The wide-held belief that eating smaller portions throughout the day has been countered.Used to think so until today when I stumbled on a study that proves otherwise.Says many frequent meals throughout the day don’t work!You just pile up more calories.Better not to exceed at most 4 meals,but this all depends on the amount of calorie being ingested.The choice of the food matters,you need no telling.What’s most confusing though is the number of contradicting studies coming out every week.So,bet experience is the best teacher?I would rather not exceed the 4 meals.6 meals???However small???That’s outrageous!!!What else remains on your to-do-list,save for the 70% eating part?
Eat less and exercise more sounds easy bit all is not as it seems. Your diet has to have enough vitamins and minerals with a balance of carbohydrate and protein to suit you as an individual. We are all different in this respect.
Intermittent fasting is the new buzzword, but I have not tried this one.
Exercise makes you hungry and it i easy to fall into the trap of overeating after a workout.
good article… i want like his abs on the picture:DDDD
It all comes down to a life style choice. These choices are simple – eat less and exercise more. But they are not necessarily easy to make, especially with amount of food distractions that are on offer. But taking small steps gradually rather that going onto the latest fad diet will increase your chances of making long term lifestyle changes that are going make you look and feel better.
Eating frequently, small portions can control the cravings which will often make you eat less. And regular exercises helps you in losing as well as tone up your muscles, reduce the fats on specific areas.
Recommending eating 4-6 smaller meals a day is one of the way to create a diabetic. This advise gets passed along without giving it any thought whatsoever.
The pancreas is designed to release insulin twice per day. It obviously can produce more and does so whenever food is consumed. However, forcing insulin production 4-6 times per day is one of the ways to overwork the pancreas.
Eating 3 meals per day is the recommended pattern.
You are so right! I am amazed at the constant barrage of diets and gadgets that come around every year. They’re always presented in such a way that it seems like rocket science to get in shape and/or lose but it all comes down proper diet and exercise. Just like you stated in your article! 🙂
I totally agree with this article, I think people believe they need special equipment and fad diets to lose those extra pounds and thats simply not true
