3 Simple Ways to Lose Weight Fast

Have you been trying to lose weight? Or perhaps you are planning to do so? Well, there are actually plenty of ways to do it fast. The only catch, however, is that they are only going to make you hungry and unsatisfied. This is most especially if you do not have the willpower, resulting in hunger causing you to give up instantly.

But hey, we here at Idle Monkey got you covered. We are going to show you 3 easy ways on how to lose weight more effectively. Scroll down below and be sure to keep them in mind!

#1. Cut Back on Starches and Sugars

If you are really serious about losing weight, then it is time you veer away from consuming food rich in starches and sugars (carbs specifically). These are the types that can stimulate secretion of insulin at a much faster rate. Keep in mind that insulin is the primary storage of fat hormone in the body. When it goes down, fat gets a much easier time getting out in said storage. This where the body begins to burn fats instead of just carbs.

Another interesting benefit of lowering insulin is that the kidney significantly sheds excess sodium and water. Such process greatly reduces bloat and unnecessary weight of the body. Try this and you will be surprised that you already lose 10 pounds of weight.

#2. Eat a Good Balance of Protein, Vegetables, and Fat

As much as possible, your meals must include a fat source, low-carb vegetables, and protein source. Do this and you will immediately bring your carb consumption into the recommended range of 20-50 grams a day.

Below are protein sources:
  • Meat – chicken, pork, beef, bacon, lamb, etc.
  • Eggs – Omega-3 enriched or pastured eggs
  • Fish and Seafood – trout, lobsters, shrimps, salmon, etc.            
Fat Sources:

  • Olive oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Avocado oil
  • Butter
  • Tallow
Low-Carb Vegetables:
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Swiss Chard
  • Lettuce
  • Cucumber
  • Celery
There is a reason why eating plenty of protein, in particular, is of huge importance. It is proven to boost metabolism by around 80 to 100 calories per day. Moreover, this type of diet greatly reduces obsessive thoughts about food by at least 60 percent. It keeps your desire for mid-night snacks by half, too.

#3. Try to Lift Weights at least 3 Times a Week

You do not really have to burden yourself with exercise just to lose weight (though it is still recommended). That is because you will always have the option to hit the gym 3 to 4 times a week. You just need to warm up, lift weights, and stretch. That is pretty much it. Nonetheless, if you can get yourself a trainer, then the better.

Lifting weights alone can burn a lot of calories and thus prevent metabolism from slowing down. The latter, in case you did not know, is the common side effect of losing weight. If for some reason, lifting weights is something that you find impossible to do, you can always resort to cardio workouts. This includes running, jogging, swimming, and/or walking.
