Hello Water Friend,

The start of a new year is enough incentive for many people to make lifestyle changes. Losing weight and eating healthy are often at the top of the list of resolutions.

With the continual changing array of diets that become popular, it can be confusing and difficult to know which path to take.

Most weight-loss diets have worked for some people, but not all diets work for all people. And not all diets are healthy.

As a nutrition consultant, I have found that if dietary and/or lifestyle changes are too complex or too different for clients, the changes are usually not sustainable and, in most cases, people fall back into old habits and regain the weight.

The middle way of moderation is more sustainable and less stressful. And it is usually healthier overall.

Thus, regardless of whether or not your have weight to lose, it always comes down to nutrition basics: eat an abundance of fresh vegetables, moderate protein (animal or plant), and healthy fats (nuts, seeds, nut butters, avocados, olive oil, coconut oil).

These healthy fats are your daily friends. They will keep you satiated and get your body to burn fat instead of sugar.

For faster weight loss, the key is to avoid all forms of sugar, starch, and processed food for at least three weeks. Doing so will improve insulin sensitivity and help to normalize blood sugar levels.

To learn more details about this moderate plan and potential health benefits, see our feature article “Lose Weight Fast – 4 Key Factors.”

Obviously, everyone is different and I don’t believe in a “one-size-fits-all” diet.

However, from my experience, the closer you stick to the general guidelines in this article, the faster you will lose weight and experience additional health benefits.

Wishing you greater health in 2019!

How to Lose Weight Fast – 4 Key Factors

If you want to lose weight fast AND improve your health at the same time, there are four key steps to consider.

The key steps include: (1) reduce intake of starches and sugars, (2) eat protein, fats, and vegetables, (3) drink enough water daily to stay hydrated and (4) get at least 15 minutes of aerobic exercise and/or weight lifting daily.

The good news is that you don’t have to learn a complicated weight-loss program and count calories nor do you have to spend an hour at the gym every day.

How much weight you can lose on this plan depends on how much weight you have to lose and how well you can keep to the guidelines. But most people will lose at least 2 pounds of fat per week, and potentially much more than that in actual weight.

For the first few days, you may feel different, such as tired, restless, or just uncomfortable.

This is because your body is used to burning sugar for energy, but on this diet your body will burn fat, which is a slower-burning and cleaner fuel for your body.
