Best Dieting Practices To Lose Weight Fast!

We constantly hear about the latest fad diets and certain foods that are supposed to make us magically skinny. The weight loss industry outside of practicing board certified professionals is ran on gimmicks and myths. Through our years of training and real-world experience helping patients lose weight, Lake Norman Weight Loss & Wellness knows the best dieting practices that work to lose weight fast!

Join a weight loss program! There is nothing wrong with going to a weight loss professional to help lose weight. Weight loss experts can offer support, structure and a community that helps promote and maintain healthy lifestyle habits. Lake Norman Weight Loss & Wellness has the personalized programs needed to help lose weight fast!

Stay Active! Exercise and sticking to an exercise routine is crucial for maintaining weight loss. There are plenty of options available to exercise at home, at a gym or any number of outside group activities that keep you active! Research shows that Exercising releases endorphins that boost your mood and lower rates of depression!

Drink plenty of water, especially before meals. Research shows that drinking water can boost metabolism up to 30% over 1 hour and some studies show that drinking 2 cups of water 30 minutes before meals helps dieters ear fewer calories and lose 44% more weight.

Exercise portion control and/or count calories. Some studies show that keeping track of your food intake helps improve personal accountability and helps lose more weight than not counting calories.

Get plenty of sleep! Studies show that those who get little sleep are more at-risk for weight gain, diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. Most adults need at least 7-8 hours of sleep each night! insufficient or poor-quality sleep slows down the process in which the body converts calories to energy, called metabolism. When metabolism is less effective the body may store unused energy as fat. In addition, poor sleep can increase the production of insulin and cortisol, which is critical in fat storage. Loss weight fast while getting plenty of Z’s!

Eat minimally processed food. Another common mistake when eating a low-carb diet is getting fooled by the creative marketing of special “low-carb” products. An effective low-carb diet for weight loss should be based primarily on whole foodPrioritize what humans have been eating for thousands or likely millions of years, e.g. meat, fish, vegetables, eggs, butter, olives, nuts etc.

Why Diets Can Fail

How many times have you told yourself, “I am going to finally lose weight”, only to stop tracking your calories, stop exercising regularly and just go back to the same old bad habits? Does it seem like your original idea of “I am going to lose weight fast” just seems to keep falling flat on it’s face shortly after starting the right habits?

The truth is: Dieting is HARD.

Research shows that dieting makes the brain more sensitive to stress and the rewards of high-fat, high-calorie treats. These brain changes last long after the diet is over and prod otherwise healthy individuals to binge eat under pressure. Most research on weight loss has focused on tweaking appetite regulation—helping people eat less, get full faster, and have fewer cravings. But once we lose weight, we have trouble keeping it off. Even weight-loss surgery doesn’t always help people maintain their more slender body size.

The researchers hypothesized that dieting leaves people more susceptible to the chronic stresses of everyday life, making even the strongest dieter yearn for a pint of ice cream or a hot, cheesy pizza. Although one hot fudge sundae won’t cause significant weight gain, persistent stress could lead to a pattern of binge or comfort eating that undoes previous weight loss.

The results of the experiment showed that: “Dieting is tough because your brain is working against you”. Learning better ways to cope with stress may be the key to successful weight loss because “you aren’t prone to have stress drive you to want to consume.” Bale thinks that designing medications to target these stress pathways may help dieters keep off the weight that they worked so hard to lose.

Lake Norman Weight Loss & Wellness has a great weight loss support group on their Facebook page where you can stay engaged with others that are losing weight and stay motivated!

Shannon and her team have been amazing to work with. I never feel like they are trying to “sell” me because their... programs speak for themselves. While losing my baby weight (40 lbs.) is a huge accomplishment, my biggest achievement was changing my eating lifestyle. I feel like I eat to live instead of the other way around and for that, I can’t thank the LKN team enough!read more
