I KNOW you’ve seen those articles or images on Pinterest of workouts or diet plans that claim to help you lose a whole bunch of weight in no time at all. I’ve seen them too!
As a personal trainer, I get asked all the time if it’s possible for a client to lose a lot of weight really quickly. People are always looking for the easy way out, or the fastest track to their weight loss goals.
I totally understand why people ask those questions–once you have a goal in mind, you want to do everything possible to see results really quickly. Seeing results is awesome and it feels great! However, with weight loss, your results might take a little longer.
The Fad Diet
There are ways to lose weight quickly–but they usually aren’t healthy or sustainable. Those are called ‘fad diets’.
I’m sure you’ve seen these online, or heard someone you know talking about their new diet that promises to help them lose weight quickly and without much work.
Fad diets often restrict your calories to an unhealthy, very low level. While it’s true that you can lose weight when you are in a caloric deficit, your body still needs enough calories to function properly.
Because your body can’t function for long periods of time on too few calories, these fad diets are not sustainable. A sustainable diet can lead you to lasting weight loss results and a healthier lifestyle.
How to Diet the Healthy Way
Making small, healthy choices that become habits is the way to lasting weight loss success. If you want to make a lasting change, you need to live a healthy lifestyle.
Filling your diet with healthy fruits and veggies, whole grains, and lean meats will help your body be healthy as you workout and lose weight. Setting reasonable workout goals for yourself will keep you accountable and help you succeed.
If you can implement healthy changes into your life, like watching what you eat and exercising regularly, you can see lasting weight loss results.
