…cut out all carbs.
…do an hour of cardio every other day.

…eat up all your “points” by noon and starve yourself the rest of the day.
…eat like a Caveman, South Beacher, Mediterranean, or a Bird.
…eat only vegetables, fruit, and protein.
…skip lunches out because restaurant food is fattening.
…eat a salad with lemon juice as the dressing.
…avoid anything “white.”
…eat so little that you starve yourself.
…watch in envy as you eat your diet food and everyone else has a cheeseburger.
…focus on your weight so much.

Figuring out the best way to lose weight fast is almost like trying to find a way to fly to the moon. The fact is, the best way to lose weight is any way that works for you–and is sustainable for many years. If you’ve discovered that, congratulations. I doubt you have or you wouldn’t be wasting your time here…unless your’e here for your friend. Yeah. Right.
A recent article came out that compared the effect of exercise and the effect of reducing calories on losing weight and getting rid of body fat. People who worked out like crazy and didn’t alter their caloric intake lost 10 times LESS weight than those who ONLY reduced their calories! Are you shocked? I wasn’t.
The study is outstanding because it proved the point I always try to make with the half Meal Habit, which is, you don’t have to work out to lose weight. As long as you are burning more calories than you consume, you will see results. I’m not talking about burning more protein calories or fiber calories or fruits and veggie calories either. Just calories in vs. calories burned.
So, what is the best way to lose weight quickly? A good combination of regular calorie reduction and some form of regular exercise or physical activity. Did you notice the repeat use of the word regular? This is the key for success. You can’t cut back on calories for a few days and then go into a full blown over-eating food-fest.
In trying to discover what is the best and quickest way to lose weight, I found the answer and it’s simple: Eat less, move more, and hydrate. Three simple rules that will change your life. They changed mine. And they can and will change yours, too.
