5 Ways to Lose Weight Fast and Easy
Sweatpants are a forgiving fashion staple right now, but are you looking to stay on top of your weight management so you can still squeeze back into your favourite dress or corporate attire once returns to normal? Losing weight through regular exercise and nutritionally balanced meals can be a challenge within itself. Add some big changes to your regular schedule and eating habits, and extra time indoors into the mix and you could find yourself throwing the towel in, as your current weight loss goals no longer seem in reach. But achieving quick weight loss is possible! Read on for easy tips on how to lose weight quickly from the comfort and safety of home.
Here are 5 easy tips to lose weight from home:
1. Have a big breakfast
Lots of us have extra time up our sleeves now without the regular commute, and finding time for breakfast is key. Kick-start your day with a high-protein breakfast that includes eggs and greens. Including foods such as Greek yoghurt, nuts and whole grains will help keep you fuller for longer and will likely lessen the possibility of cravings and temptations to reach out for high-calorie foods later in the day.
2. Adopt a very low-calorie diet plan
Each person’s needs for calories are unique depending on a variety of factors such as lifestyle, age and activity level. When you want to achieve fast weight loss, it’s extremely important to track what you are eating, how you are eating and when you are eating. Consult a qualified health professional to discuss meal replacement plans offering very low calorie diet shakes, protein food bars, nutritious soups and diet snacks. There are also apps you can download to assist in measuring these factors throughout your day. This way you can keep track of your calorie intake.
3. Easy, low-calorie recipes
When you are living a busy lifestyle, it is often easier to grab a meal from your favourite local takeaway shop, than prepare a healthy meal at home. But you don’t need to be the next Jamie Oliver to plan and prep easy, healthy, low-calorie meals. Choose recipes that will support your weight loss goals by reducing unwanted fats and carbohydrates intake. If you are strapped for time, lean towards recipes that require either minimal preparation and cooking time, or recipes that can be made in bulk and divided into smaller portions to enjoy for later meals.
4. Chose a low calorie weight loss program
When you want to lose weight fast, following a weight loss program after consulting with your doctor, can help achieve desired results safely. Weight loss programs such as the Tony Ferguson VLCD or Tony Ferguson 12-Week Program comprise scientifically formulated meal replacement products that can easily fit into your weight loss diet plan. These meal replacement shakes provide the body with the necessary nutrients to keep you energized, satisfied throughout the day, and lose weight quickly. The Classic Shake range and VLCD Rapid Shake range are an easy to prepare, healthy meal option when you’re on the run. They are made up of protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals with the aim of mimicking a low-calorie balanced meal, making it possible to lose between 1 to 2 kgs per week with Tony Ferguson VLCD products.
5. Intense workouts
The less time you have the more you must use it to workout hard. Exercising daily for at least 30 minutes will help the body burn calories and lose weight faster. In a normal world, we would suggest trying a variety of calorie-burning workouts such as swimming, running, kickboxing and cycling. But with so many of us isolating at home, your high-intensity exercise could take the form of home gym setups, online guided workouts, doing laps of your staircase, or going for a run around your neighbourhood (especially where there is hills). Strength training workouts two or three times a week will let you target every major muscle group. Through isolated weight training it is possible to focus on losing weight and toning specific parts of the body. Check out our 12-easy exercises for more ideas on staying fit.
Losing weight must be a lifestyle change you are willing to commit to. Meal replacement products are specially formulated to meet your nutrient needs while cutting back on calories. They must be used as part of your long-term weight loss diet plan after consulting with a certified health professional.
