Fast Ways To Lose Weight

It might not seem possible but there really are fast ways to lose weight - and keep it off.

There are all sorts of short term things you can do to quickly drop some pounds but they aren't feasible for the long term, of course. But the best way to lose weight quickly and for good is to eat small meals several times per day.

Now, by small I mean they shouldn't exceed a certain number of calories. Yes, you'll have to start learning how many calories are in foods. You won't lose weight otherwise.

First you have to figure out how many calories you need to maintain your ideal weight. If you are female take your ideal weight and multiply by 12. That is the number of calories you should eat per day. If you are male, take your ideal weight and multiply by 14.

It's best to eat those calories throughout the day in small meals. Sure, you could blow all your calories at once on a super sized Big Mac meal and eat calorie-free food for the rest of the day but that would defeat the purpose.

When you eat regularly, in small portions, your body doesn't store fat. It knows there's food right around the corner and doesn't store fat by thinking there's a famine.

When you start paying attention to the calories you'll find that you also start learning more about nutrition too because you want to get the most nutrition for your calories. The technical term for this is Calorie Restriction with Optimal Nutrition (CRON) and there is all kinds of research supporting the health benefits of this type of eating.

Don't worry: you'll quickly start memorizing the calories and soon it will become intuitive. You'll look at a dish and automatically know the proper size and roughly how many calories are in it. You won't have to walk around with a charge or calculator.

You will steadily lose weight until you reach your ideal weight. After you reach your ideal weight you will continue to eat the same amount of calorie in order to maintain that way. And as I know from experience, being in the position of maintaining your weight, instead of having to lose it, is a wonderful feeling.

Want to try a calorie restriction diet that's actually fun and easy to learn? Go to This little 60 page booklet has been flying off the shelves. Why? Because you get to eat whatever you want, 12 times per day.
