So Trudy…How do I lose weight fast? Oh if I had a dollar for every time I had heard that question I would be a mega rich billionaire (slight exaggeration I don’t know a billion people) But seriously I have been asked ” how do I lose weight fast ” “can I take diet pills” so many times that I have to try to not roll my eyes back in my head. This question and many others from my clients also lead me to produce my Real Food for Real Fat Loss program (which you can buy on this very site! Shameless plug sorry.) but that’s a whole other story.
I probably don’t have to tell you but most fast weight loss programs don’t work – they usually mess with your metabolism and then you end up yo yo dieting and put the weight straight back on again. The worst thing is your metabolism has slowed down even more so you end up putting on more weight than you lose in the first place.
Starvation is not a practical long term solution to weight loss. Not sure about you but you don’t want to be around me when I am hungry not to mention starving! I have often heard clients (and yes did this myself when I was young and dumb) proud of themselves for not eating breakfast in order to have a flat stomach in the morning, then leave the house running on nothing more than a cup of coffee.
“If I just do that for a few days I should lose a few pounds” is the internal justification. Well ladies…yes it’s mostly you that do this, I hate to break it to you but ba baw that does not work. Ever heard of the term BREAKFAST? What the? you say of course I have heard of the term Breakfast well, let me break it down for you…(pardon the punn). Breakfast means to break the fast…fast means well umm to not eat. So that leads me to my next point in that you need to eat breakfast. Not convinced you coffee only people out there? Hopefully you will be after this. If you haven’t eaten for about 9-11 hours (varies depending on body composition etc) your body goes into whats called the starvation mode. This means that the brain tells the body that it is unsure of when you are going to eat next so the body better hang n to some fat supplies just in case it doesn’t get fed, oh and it also slows down your metabolism as well- surely we don’t want to be burning excess calories if we don’t know when we are going to get fed next…. So what is essentially saying is that if you don’t eat for extended periods of time your body will simply store fat as a back up plan and slow down your metabolism to conserve energy. So there are very good reasons why we need to break the fast.
Oh and don’t get me started on diet pills…unless you have a spare 4 hours? Let’s keep it short. Diet pills don’t work full stop.
Moral of the story, don’t starve yourself, don’t skip breakfast, eat real food (see other article on what Real food really is) not fake processed food and if you really want to lose serious weight and keep it off permanently then buy my real food for real fat loss program – no more thinking about dieting, no more dieting, just living. You even get to eat burgers, pizza and tacos on my weight loss program because deprivation and starvation don’t work. If you are serious about losing the weight permanently and in a realistic world where you need to go out with your friends and cook one meal for the whole family rather than preparing a special diet meal for yourself then this is for you.

(I went a week over due with my first) Can you believe that I am about to do it all again…by carumba…11 weeks to go.
