Here Are the 5 Steps Toward Creating Fast Weight Loss

Before we get started, I want you to know that I tried to achieve fast weight loss for eight years straight using low calorie and fad diets. From 1986 to 1994 this approach helped me to gain 100 pounds of unwanted body fat very effectively. Obviously, this is the opposite of what I wanted.

Just to make sure this does not happen to you, I want to give you a list of the 5 steps that will help you to avoid the mistakes that I made during those eight long and painful years.

Step One: Create an exact target that you will aim at during the whole weight loss phase of your program. For example, “I choose to create a lean, healthy body with 15% body fat.” Taking this step will help you to know *exactly* where you are going in your weight loss journey.

Step Two: Create an objective way of observing your current circumstances on a daily and weekly basis. This will help you to know your starting point, and also will help you to know if you are moving toward or away from your major health goal. The best way to do this is to keep track of your total body Biofit weight, total body fat weight, and total lean body mass on a weekly basis.

Also, if fast weight loss is your primary objective you will have to be completely honest with yourself about your current eating and exercise habits. If you are not honest with yourself, permanent fat loss will elude you!

What this means is this: If you are eating five times more calories in the last evening meal than you should, or if you are postponing your cardio and weight training to the next day, for the last 60 days, that you have to admit this to yourself.

From here you have two choices, you can either focus on the target that you want to reach, and start doing what you have to do to reach it, or admit to yourself that you just don’t want it bad enough.

You see, you don’t have to lie to yourself or try to force yourself to like eating healthy food and to like to do exercise on a regular basis if you don’t like it, but you do have to make a choice what is more important to you and what is less important.

This is how true motivation is created.

By making a primary choice (hopefully a lean, healthy body) and then choosing to take the necessary secondary steps (eating healthy food and exercising) to make this primary objective a reality.

Without producing this clarity, you will simply get caught in the vicious weight loss and weight re-gain cycle.

In other words, if eating delicious, high calorie foods, and the comfort that comes from not exercising is more important to you than having a lean, healthy body with a low body fat percentage, then you will never, ever create permanent fast loss.

Fast weight loss, maybe, by using your willpower for a while, but irreversible, long term weight loss will be simply impossible for you. The reason for this is simple: You see, we human beings like what we like, and we don’t like what we don’t like.

…and if you don’t like eating healthy food, and don’t like exercising, then the only way you will ever be able to do this on a regular basis is if you become completely aware of the fact that this helps you to accomplish something that is much more important to you… than eating delicious, high calorie foods and not exercising…
