Are quick weight loss plans all hype? That depends on whom you might ask. Let me rephrase the query, and ask you this question. Is your own life's glass, half empty or halfway full?
Quick, don't think about it. Just spit out an answer.
You know what it is. If it's half-empty, then you might not believe that you have any chance of losing a tremendous amount of weight in the shortest possible time. If you have that sense of mentality then you might find it difficult to lose weight--any significant amount--over any period of time, ever.
So lets flip the coin, shall we. Let's take a look at the other side.
What is your diet Goal?
Now, let's say your glass if half full, you're optimistic and hopeful. You feel that you can, indeed, lose weight...and lose it fast. Now what? Well, you're reading this article, that's a start. The first thing to do is set yourself on a specific goal.
What do you want to accomplish? How much weight would you like to lose?
Once you come to that specific weight loss number--and it must "be specific" or you will never reach it. If you say, "I want to lose as much as I can." That's not a specific answer.
We need a clear, specific weight loss number. Something concrete, something that your mind can chew on.
Got your number? Now, begin by making a list. Make a list of the things that you do that are preventing you from losing weight right now. Grab a pen and piece of paper and make a list of 20 things that you could do, right now, to help you lose weight quickly. I'll help.
I'll give you 5 good answers.
Top 5 "Dos"
1. Begin walking 20 minutes a day. (Not hard, just a little activity)
2. Begin cutting out extra sugar from your diet (A little tougher, but doable)
3. Drink 12 glasses of water a day (You're walking now, so you'll need more fluids)
4. Remind yourself daily of your goals (Remember your weight loss number? Think about that every day?
5. Begin creating a better, more productive, weight loss environment. (Get rid of any negativity from your life. As much as you can.)
Add to the list from here. Make it specific to your own life. Make it specific to your own weight loss goals. This is not difficult stuff, not really. Do the little bit of work, take action, and the weight will begin to disappear.
Do you need to go out and buy a bunch of different quick weight loss plans? In two words: heck no. But I would purchase a few reference guides from any reputable source. Be persistent, take action, and you will lose weight.
