Tips to Lose Weight Fast

6 Tips to Lose Weight Fast You Can Do Before Noon

Healthy Food

Healthy food picks to fight cravings!
I know that food cravings are so frustrating when trying to lose weight, get healthy, and clean up your diet. The first few weeks of eating healthy food can be the toughest.Cravings are a big reason we fall off the wagon, we just can’t fight them and give into temptations…which leads us to just give up.

Don’t let cravings derail your weight loss progress, you can fight a craving, with a healthy food swap!

Check out these top craved foods, and the healthy food swap you can make.

1. Chocolate

If you are constantly thinking of that Hersey’s bar, your body might be telling you it needs magnesium!

Healthy food swap: almonds, pumpkin or sunflower seeds. Healthy, tasty, and satisfying!

2. Sugar-filled foods

If your sweet tooth is running high, there could be a few culprits to blame. Chromium is one of them.

Healthy food swap: broccoli, grapes and chicken.

Phosphorous is another option.

Healthy food swap: chicken or beef, fatty fish like wild-caught salmon, eggs, veggies or nuts.

Sulfur is the last suspect.

Healthy food swap: cranberries, cauliflower or cabbage.

Cover all your bases, make a spinach and kale salad with cranberries, nuts, and chicken.

3. Carbs

If you are thinking of bread, pizza, and pasta…you have carbs on the brain. The best solution? Reach for some protein.

Protein will keep you full, satisfied, and help you fight those cravings.

Healthy food swap? wild-caught salmon, chicken, almonds, or a easy protein shake.

4. Oily foods

If you are dreaming of greasy fries and chips, you might be low in calcium.

Healthy food swap: dark leafy greens, milk

5. Salty foods

If you can’t get enough salt you could have a few issues going on. Either you are dehydrated, or you have a chloride or silicon deficiency. Make sure you are drinking at least a 1/2 gallon of water a day, even more if you are sweating a lot.

Healthy food swap: celery, nuts or seeds

Once you learn to eat the right foods to give your body the healthy balance it needs, cravings will get easier. You will start to crave water, fruits, protein, and healthy foods.

Motivation to lose weight

Get it back after a Holiday Week-End

Motivation to lose weight and get into shape can be hard to find sometimes. Especially when you have a busy life, and it just seems that no matter how hard you try you cannot lose the weight. Add in a holiday weekend, and any motivation can go out the window! Then you wake up, Tuesday, bloated, feeling tired, and motivation has vanished!

Don’t give up so quickly, you can get back your motivation to lose weight! Here are four things to get back on track my online boot campers are using, and you can too.

1) Don’t beat yourself up. Maybe you planned to eat healthy, but just ended up letting go. Oh well, so what! Get over it, don’t beat yourself up, and move on! Instead of spending time wishing you didn’t, spend time working on getting your motivation to lose weight back.

2) Clean up your kitchen. If you have some unhealthy leftovers, try to get rid of them or let the husband, kiddos, etc. eat them. Start cleaning up your diet so you can feel better, and get that weight loss back on track.
3) Revisit your goals. Remember why you wanted to lose weight in the first place? What was your motivation to lose weight? Write it down, and remember this is for your health and happiness.
4) Get back to sweating. Jump right back onto the wagon with your favorite workout, it will help you feel better and get your body sweating out all the bad stuff.
If you overindulged over the long week-end, don’t stress. The damage is not forever! Use these four tips to get back on track and you’ll be back to losing weight before you know it!

How to lose weight quickly

Do you need to lose weight? Are you finally ready to get in shape, and want to get a jump start on your weight loss and health? I am going to tell you how to lose weight quickly and SAFELY!

How to lose weight quickly

First, if you want to lose weight and KEEP it off, skip the fad diets. Results don’t last and you want to create lasting health. If you start today, you can be well on your way to losing weight!
If you have a lot of weight to lose, you can safely lose about 1-3 pounds a week at home with a healthy diet and exercise. Any more than that, and results are probably not going to last and you maybe taking unhealthy measures. I know how appealing detoxes, fasts, and diet crazes can sound, particularly if you have a lot of weight to lose…but don’t get caught up in the hype. You can safely lose weight quickly, so let’s make a goal and lose that weight. However, let’s do it right so you set yourself up for lasting success. First, get your nutrition under control, then focus on adding in exercise.

My top tips for how to lose weight quickly and safely with nutrition:
• Start cleaning up your diet. Aim to eat protein and vegetables at every meal to help you feel full.
• Start drinking water! Aim for at least a ½ gallon a day.
• Start looking at food as fuel, before you take a bite ask yourself, “Will this make me feel good, give me energy, and make me healthier”. Try to eliminate sodas, fast foods, fried foods, and processed foods from your daily routine. These are things that have no nutritional value, and should be eaten as a once in a while treat!
• Don’t go hungry, and don’t skip meals. You want to keep your metabolism running high!
• Learn to meal prep! Check out my blog post on that here: http://www.starrfit.com/meal-prep-ideas/

My top tips for how to lose weight quickly and safely with exercise:
• Start parking farther away, take the stairs, walk while you talk on the phone, etc.
• Add in a 30 minute walk every morning, afternoon, or evening (better yet, all 3). This is not only healthy for your body, but a great way to refocus and calm your mind.
• Then, add in 15 minute body weight circuit workouts, 3-5 times a week. Set a timer for 15 minutes and do 4 body weight moves such as 5 pushups, 10 squats, 20 leg lifts, and 30 jumping jacks. Check out my IG page or Facebook for TONS of home workout videos to try!
• After you have mastered daily walks, body weight workouts, then add in some weight training! Not only is weight training great for weight-loss, but building muscle also helps you burn calories — even after your workout is done.

Follow these tips on how to lose weight quickly, and not only will the pounds start to fall off, but you will be creating lasting and healthy habits.
