6 Week Weight Loss Plans

Looking For A Diet Plan

When people want to lose weight the right way, they need to plan and should look for a diet program that will allow them to fit into their pants or dresses, cut down on inches and meet the weight loss goals they have set.

Strategy

You will need to develop a clear strategy that will help you cut down on the pounds and fat, in order to have the chance to get everything that you want out of your life. A strategy is a WAY of achieving your goals. One problem for people trying to lose weight is that they see it as a long, hopeless task that will take the rest of their life. It can seem like a dreary way to live but by planning just for 6 weeks, it can seem very achievable. By adhering to a 6 week weight loss plan, you’ll have the chance to start shedding fat and everything else along the way, with an end goal in sight and a clear target to aim for. This will provide you with a clear outlook any time that you’re looking for it.

Key To Losing Weight

The key to losing weight and accomplishing your goals is to start slow and stick to it. Set small goals that you know you can accomplish. This creates energy and motivation rather than discouragement. If you set out to have huge, cumbersome goals right away, and you are not used to cutting down on calories or to exercising, for instance, you will quickly feel deflated if you do not conquer it all at once or get the results that you were looking for. In order to make sure that you get the goals that you set out to accomplish, be sure to find a plan that can keep you on task.

Six Weeks WILL end!

When you set out to follow one of these programs, you will be in a better position to lose all the way that you wanted, no matter what. Six weeks is a finite time. So you are not just doing an open ended, never ending project. At the end of the six weeks, you can look back and evaluate your progress to see what things you can change and which things you feel worked best for you. And if you choose and you need to, you can do another 6 week round of your chosen program.

7 Healthy Weight Loss Tips for You

Almost everyone today is looking for way of losing weight effectively. Although there are many weight loss programs at everyone’s disposal, it is always advisable to use a healthy alternative for losing weight, so you don’t lose your health along with the fat. You can find many healthy weight loss tips online, some of which can be beneficial and realistic to you. Discussed here are some of these tips:

1. Keep away from fad diets: Fad diets, or foods found in fast food joints and factory manufactured foods for that matter catapult weight gain. You need to stay away from these to avoid any more weight gain, and start eating healthy. Preparing your own meals at home is the first step to losing weight. Much fast food has added fillers that contain a lot of fattening simple carbohydrates.

2. Focus on low carb diets: Carbohydrates have a lot of calories, which are needed to a certain extent by the body to produce energy. Calories in excess are however converted into fats, thus leading to weight gain. You need to give your body only enough calories for specific tasks by using low carb diets, you can also replace most of high carb diets with proteins and fibers for a faster weight loss. Simple carbohydrates, like flour, bread, pasta, cookies, cakes, pastries, potatoes and white rice should be avoided as far as possible.

3. Keep away from emotional eating: Some people tend to eat uncontrollably when stressed or when lonely. This gives the body more calories than it needs, thus paving way for weight gain. Engaging in outdoor activities, taking a nap or anything that will keep you away from these foods will also help you keep your weight effectively in check.

4. Focus on fruits, vegetables and foods rich in fiber: Fruits, veggies and foods rich in fiber are good remedies for persons seeking to lose weight. Fruits and vegetable have a very high fiber content, which gives one a full feeling after a few bites. Eating these will limit the amount of food you take in a day. These also provide the body with essential vitamins, nutrients and minerals required by the body too.

5. Eat only when hungry: This is the basic principle you will find in many healthy weight loss tips. By eating only when your body demands food, you will be able to maintain your body’s calorie intake, thus limiting weight gain, however, emotional eating can make you feel hungry, even when you do not need food, try a hot drink (no sugar or sweeteners) instead and see if you feel less hungry.

6. Take exercise everyday: A sedentary lifestyle (couch potato) is more likely to lead to weight gain as compared to one that includes regular exercise. You do not necessarily have to enroll for a gym class, taking a walk in the park, riding a bike, or walking a few miles in a day can be enough. Exercise can help the body burn excess fats. Weight lifting is especially helpful as it (a) gives you a leaner body, even without weight loss and (b) gets those muscles burning more fat. And NO, it does not mean getting huge muscles, just toning the ones you have, to work harder for you.

7. Change your lifestyle: Today’s lifestyle contributes a lot to weight gain. For instance, many people no longer drink pure water but take a fizzy drink instead. These drinks contain carbonates and calories that contribute to weight gain. Even diet soda can cause an insuliin spike in your body and can encourage later consumption of carbohydrates. Pure water alone is enough to quench your thirst, and does not affect your body mass. In addition to this, the body also uses this water to remove toxins from the body through sweating, which cleanses the body system effectively.

By following these healthy weight loss tips, your body will start to lose any excess fat, and you will improve your immune system, making you healthier.

Fast Diet 5:2

Weight Gain

Christmas, and allĀ of December was a feast for me. šŸ™ I put on a stone (14 lbs, 6 Kgs) during December and reached what I think was probably my heaviest weight ever.

Fast Diet

Over the past few months I had been hearing about the fasting diet. Several places, magazines, health articles and on line were touting the benefits of the Fast Diet, where you fast (reduced calories) for two days in the week, often Monday and Thursday and then eat normally the rest of the week. It’s a calorie reduction programme with a difference. You eat normally for 5 days of the week and on two days (normally Monday and Thursday, you take only 500 calories (women) or 600 calories (men).

The 5:2 Fast Diet

3 January 2015
I read the book “The Fast Diet”, decided to follow it and to start now, with a fast. Good way to start the New Year after the Christmas gluttony! Nothing at breakfast time. 1 cup of protein shake at lunchtime. 2 slices bacon, 1 fried egg and spinach for dinner. drank hot lemon water and tea. I then measured my weight in the evening and I was 81.5kg – the heaviest I have ever been. Waist 36.5,Ā inches andĀ abdomen 43.5 inches – NOT good.

Comments. After such a small amount to eat, I expected to be ravenously hungry, but no, I wasn’t. I didn’t expect to have any problem in the morning because if I am going for exercise, I don’t eat or drink anything anyway and also if going to town, I don’t eat or drink anything either. Once it came to lunchtime, I was not starving but made my husband lunch and made myself a small protein shake, which I drank slowly. Then nothing til teatime. Was hungry AFTER tea but drank hot lemon water and my body realised it was mouth hunger or expectations, not real hunger. Good start. The book said that I would not feel really hungry and that even if I did, many people found that it was manageable because they knew they would be able to eat normally tomorrow.

5 January 2015 – Monday
Fast day today. Drank tea during the morning, nothing to eat. Had small container of protein shake at lunchtime. Had cold chicken, carrots and parsnips and green beans for tea.
Measurements: waist 37 Abdomen 43. Hungry but not ravenously so and able to forget about it if I did something. Knowing that tomorrow would be an “eat normally” day helped too.

6 January 2015 – Tuesday
Weighed self 79.6Kgs – a drop – good! Almost 2 Kgs lost, that’s over 4 pounds in weight. Probably mainly water, it always seems to be water loss at the start.

8 January 2015

Fast Day, drank tea and hot lemon, had 1 scoop protein shake in water for lunch. Dinner, some steak pieces casserole, with green beans and brussels sprouts.

9 January 2015

weighed self 79.4Kg. Hmmm, 3 days and I have only dropped 0.2Kgs

12 January 2015.

Fast day again. I had protein shake for lunch and cold chicken with spinach for dinner. Drank lots of tea and hot lemon and black coffee. Went for a walk in the afternoon. That was unusual because I normally exercise in the morning, so I don’t need a toilet break on a long walk but managed it and went quite fast but panting hard because it was so long since I had doneĀ much exercise. I was able to do it because I didn’t have any solid food inside me, otherwise I couldn’t have. Went up Golden Steps! (Hard Work!)
Measurements: waist 36.5″, Abdomen 42.5″. Hmm, don’t know if this is working for me. Have lost an inch from abdomen, not much. Feels good though, this diet does seem to reset appetite, as they said it would. Will stay on it for a bit longer.

Friday 16 January 2015
weighed self, 79.1Kg.
I don’t find that very fast but it’s still a loss and maybe it’s better that way. It is at least a loss and it’s 2.4 Kgs in 2 weeks. 1Kg a week is healthy.

Will try fasting today too. Didn’t manage it

Thursday 22 January 2015
Waist 37 Abdomen 42 – no difference!

Monday 2 February 2015
waist 36″, abdomen 43″ No real difference from 1 month ago.
This is not working for me, though I have stuck to the 5:2 formula.

Overall Comments

This is a doable diet. The book is very readable, and some good information and support in it. It is possible that staying on this diet would take my weight down gradually to a reasonable level. I know people who are on this diet and for whom it works well. I have included a graph of the weight loss, so you can see I did lose weight but I think I will try the Atkins diet next.
