Rapid Weight Loss Tips For You
Over weight? Out of shape? Need results fast? Do you have a wedding coming up, a graduation, or family reunion on the horizon? Are you an athlete and season is coming, time to get into game shape?
I could go on and on with the questions, but the fact of the matter is that if you are over weight, no matter how much it may be, you have a reason to address the situation. Let me just mention your health, that might be the single most important reason of them all!
Speaking about health, it is important to recognize that there are some healthy ways to lose weight and some not so healthy ways to get the job done. While I will touch on some of those not so good ways, my focus is going to be on Rapid Weight Loss Tips that are good, healthy and safe to use.
If you learn the proper approach, rapid weight loss is absolutely possible, and despite popular belief, completely harmless to you and your body. The biggest thing to keep in mind is that we want to remove what we do not need, while increasing the things we do need to preserve lean body mass.
…people can lose 20 pounds of weight in a week, if they do it right!

Weight Loss vs. Fat Loss Whats The Difference?
Before we get to far ahead of things, I want to take a minute to explain the difference between “weight loss” and “fat loss”, pay attention this is important! We often use the term weight loss when it is fat that we want to lose, trust me there is a difference.
There are truly many diets that will work for losing weight, the problem is they do not care where that weight comes from, those diet plans only focus on the scale and the numbers. That can be counter productive as well as dangerous!
You see when you cut back on eating you also cut back on things like nutrients and amino acids, things your body must have to function properly. If you continue to deny your body these nutrients, say protein for example, it will begin to take what it needs from anywhere it can get it.
That means your body will start to break down your muscles, your organs and your bones to get what it needs, and that is a bad thing. So now you are losing lean body mass, which will lead to a slower metabolism, which makes it harder to lose the unwanted body fat.
These number crunching diets do way more harm than they do good for your body, they slow your actual fat loss and force your body to attack itself to get the nutrition it needs.
This one is much simpler, fat loss is just that, Fat Loss! I am willing to bet that when you say weight loss you are referring to body fat and not lean muscle. So now that we have that cleared up let’s talk about fat loss.
Fat loss happens when we remove the foods that are making us fat while maintaining, or better yet increasing, the foods and nutrients our bodies need to survive. Our metabolism is the key to losing body fat, the higher we can get our metabolism to run the better our body will be with managing fat and fat loss.
In order to keep the metabolism fired up we must fuel it properly and increase our lean body mass. Everyone has heard that muscle burns fat right? Well it is the truth, and that is why we must protect that lean body mass while we attempt to lose weight!
Nutrients: What We Need & What We Do Not Need
Nutrients break down into two basic groups, nonessential nutrients and essential nutrients. Non Essential nutrients are the nutrients that your body produces on its own, we do not get them from the food we eat.
Essential Nutrients, conversely, are the nutrients that we do get from the foods we eat. It is essential that we get these nutrients from our dietary intake to sustain our bodies and our lives.
A few examples of these essential nutrients are water, proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals. We must have these and we must get them from our diet.
Please note that I did not include carbohydrates to the list of nutrients that you need. The truth is that it is a proven scientific fact that there is not a single carbohydrate that is crucial to the human diet.
The biological fact of the matter is that there is not a single carbohydrate that is essential to the human diet…

We do not need sugar, we do not need starch and we do not need fiber. Truth is carbohydrates have no nutritional value to us whatsoever, but this is a topic for a later post. Also know this, if we do not burn off the carbs we eat immediately they get stored as guess what, Body Fat!
Now I could go into teaching you all about all of the other nutrients, however those too are topics for later posts. With that said I do want to take a minute to talk about protein before we get into the tips for rapid weight loss.
Protein – Our Foundation
Proteins are the fundamental building blocks of your your body’s cells, tissue, and organs. Proteins are made up of amino acids, there are 20 amino acids that make up all human proteins, your body only produces 12 of these, the other eight amino acids come from our diet.
Lysine, leucine, isoleucine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine are the essential amino acids that our bodies do not produce. We acquire these amino acids by eating protein sources like meat, fish, poultry and legumes.
The bottom line here is that we must have protein to sustain our livelihood, while we also need some fats, next to water proteins are the absolute must!
9 Tips For Achieving Rapid Weight Loss
The fastest way to achieve rapid weight loss is to stop using dietary carbohydrates, forcing your body to burn the fat stores we have for energy. When you restrict your carbohydrate intake, your body has no other option but to break down and burn body fat for fuel.
It is however, very important to keep your protein intake up, and to even increase your protein intake while you are participating in a low carb diet of any kind. Remember that you must consume protein to survive!
So the strategy for rapid weight loss is to restrict the foods and nutrients we do not need, while increasing the foods and nutrients we do need, firing up our metabolism, protecting our lean body mass, and torching away that unwanted body fat!

Some Closing Thoughts For You
I know it can be difficult for some people to stay committed and on track on their own, I also know that not everyone knows how to cook or even knows exactly what they should be eating. I to realize that there are those that need a little help with the workout needs they may have.
We all know that there are a ton of programs and systems out there, making it hard to pick out the right ones. Truth is, most of these diets can help you lose weight, but is the the proper type of weight?
If you find that you need a hand with anything I had just mentioned above, there is one program that I would suggest for true rapid weight loss.
However I must warn you, this is not your mama’s diet, but the results will be there, if and only if you are truly committed to your own personal success.
That program is called the 3 Week Diet, and it is based on the exact same science that we have talked about here, the science of human biology. The 3 Week Diet goes way deeper into the science than I have here, teaching you everything you need to know.
They have included a complete meal plan and outlined a simple to follow workout routine, add that to the knowledge they are going to teach you and what you get is a complete guide to reaching your rapid weight loss goals. You can check out my full review of the 3 Week Diet by clicking here.
