Hi! Welcome to Fit, Food, and Fun Fridays! Today we’ll talk about how to lose weight fast with 10 great diet tips! We all want to know how to lose weight fast and have great health, but how do we do it? It’s a complicated problem and no one-size-fits-all solution exists. What works for one person may not work for you, since our bodies respond differently to different foods, depending on genetics and other health factors.

 

Do you struggle to stick with your diet? If you are like most people, you have probably tried every diet over the years, but have failed to find the one that works for you. You’re not alone. Dieting is one of the most challenging things anyone can do. Ask any personal trainer about their biggest challenge. They will tell you that getting clients to be compliant with their diets is the hardest part

Follow these 10 tips so you can stick to your diet and lose weight:

1. Try not to drink your calories. It’s very easy to consume many of your calories through liquid consumption. Try to keep your beverages calorie-free. Water is the best choice.

 

2. Assume you are thirsty, not hungry. People frequently eat when they’re actually just thirsty. The next time you’re hungry, try having a tall glass of water first. Wait 15 minutes and see if you’re still hungry. You might find that you’re not.

 

3. Measure. Try measuring your food portions and counting all your calories for one week. It’s likely that measuring and recording will positively impact your food intact. Step on the scale to measure your weight and take body measurements to compare to later.

 

4. Are you really hungry? Are you actually hungry? Or may you’re just bored or stressed? Decide if you’re truly hungry. It’s possible you haven’t been hungry in years!

 

5. Eat slowly. It can take a while for our brains to tell our stomach we are full. If you eat too quickly, you might pass the right time to stop eating. At the end of a meal, you should always feel better than you did before you started eating. If you feel worse, you either ate too much or ate when you weren’t really hungry.

6. Continue eating your favorite foods. Keep the portions under control, but don’t be afraid to indulge in your favorite foods. Total deprivation is a recipe for disaster.

 

7. Play around with the number of meals. Some people find that they eat less if they have one large meal per day. Others find three small meals and three snacks work better. Experiment and see what works best for you.

 

8. Deal with stress without food. It’s very common to overeat when you’re stressed. Food has an amazing ability to quickly change how we feel. Read a book, listen to music, go for a walk, meditate, or call a friend. Pick an alternative that will keep you from eating.

 

9. Stay active. Exercise can reduce appetite and boost insulin sensitivity. You’ll eat less and feel better. With a little momentum, getting some exercise each day becomes self-rewarding. You might even grow to like it!

 

10. Don’t try to be perfect. You have to consistently do the wrong things to gain a significant amount of weight. Similarly, a few mistakes on your diet aren’t going to drastically affect the outcome. Hang in there and things will work out.

 

Dieting is challenging for most people. Food is necessary to sustain life. You can’t live without it. Adopting a new way of eating can take time and there are changes to be endured before they become your normal behavior.

 

These 10 tips can help you make the transition to a new way of eating. Try them on for size and watch your waistline shrink.

I really wanted to talk about this topic today because the overweight and obesity epidemic is at an all-time high! We are a fat society and it’s killing us prematurely. Not only do I truly believe that you have the power to lose weight to improve your health, but the science also agrees! You can adopt healthy lifestyle practices that improve your health and enrich your life, which can in turn improve the lives of those close to you. You have the power to break the cycle of obesity so that you can leave a legacy of health to your loved ones.

 

I use lifestyle medicine as the first line of treatment, before medications, to treat lifestyle-related chronic diseases. Lifestyle-related chronic diseases include diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and some cancers, just to name a few. Lifestyle practices, such as eating a whole-food plant-based diet and regular physical activity, can help you lose weight, and maybe reverse some of your chronic diseases. In certain cases, these approaches may even outperform pharmaceutical therapy. But I always tell my patients that conventional medications may be appropriate at this time to prevent catastrophic illness, but over time, you can work to make the necessary lifestyle changes to possibly reduce and/or eliminate medications. Please remember to always consult your physician for your particular needs and circumstances prior to making any decisions whatsoever.

 

Weight Monitoring

Since weight management is very important in combatting chronic diseases, I recommend that you be mindful of your weight and its fluctuations, and that you monitor your weight AT LEAST on a weekly basis. I recommend a scale that includes a body composition monitor (*this scale cannot be used with a pacemaker or other implanted devices).

 

Physical Activity

Physical activity (or exercise) can improve your health and reduce the risk of developing several chronic diseases like high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and cancer, just to name a few. Physical activity can improve your mood, boost your immune system, and even help you maintain a healthy weight.

 

I often recommend yoga and resistance training for physical activity, but as you are aware, there are plenty of forms of “movement” that you can do! But for the basics, especially if you’re just getting started, yoga and resistance training are where I would start.

 

Yoga

Yoga can be a great way to improve your strength and flexibility, manage your stress, improve your heart health, and lose weight! I recommend using a grounded yoga mat to connect yourself with the earth and reduce inflammation.

 

Resistance Training

Resistance training is the mainstay for overall health. It not only has beneficial effects on reducing body fat, it also increases muscle size and strength. Check out some basic dumbbells/free weights that I recommend to everyone.

 

Another alternative for dumbbells/free weights are resistance bands. They are great for physical therapy, yoga, strength training, and excellent for traveling.

 

Remember, living a healthy lifestyle including eating a whole foods plant-based diet, regular physical activity, and reducing stress are the best ways to maintain a healthy weight. Let me know what you think in the comment section below.

 

Stay healthy,

 

Dr. Nicolle
