Hi, I need to lose 100 pounds fast! I really need to lose 100 pounds fast, but I do not know what I need to do to lose 100 pounds. Why do I need to lose 100 pounds fast? Because my doctor basically told me that if I do not lose at least 100 pounds, I will become diabetic and will have other health problems. I am scared and willing to do whatever it takes to lose 100 pounds as fast as possible. What can I do to lose weight as quickly as possible? Thanks, Violet. [via Ask Questions]
We all want to lose weight as quickly as possible. Some people want to lose 10 pounds in 2 weeks. Some want to lose 10 pounds in 3 days. Some folks want to lose 50 pounds in a month. Unfortunately, it takes time to lose weight. The more weight you need to lose, the longer it takes. Losing 10 or 5 pounds can be accomplished in a relatively short time, but losing 100 pounds safely takes a lot of time.
That having been said, regardless of how much weight you need to lose, I would not recommend trying to lose weight quickly. Instead of focusing on how quickly you want to lose weight, focus on how to lose weight safely, without putting your health in danger. What is the best way to lose 100 pounds? It is rather simple: eat healthy and exercise in moderation. That is all there is to it. But what does it mean, right?
It means that walking is the only exercise you need to lose weight. It is one of the best exercises for general health anyway, but for those who need to lose a lot of weight, walking is the only safe exercise. As for your diet, if you are pre-diabetic, you need to pay a very close attention to what you eat. I am not a doctor. If you do not know how to put together a healthy diet, ask your doctor or a certified nutritionist for help. I cannot tell you specifically what you should eat.
Generally speaking, I do not think you can go wrong with eating fresh vegetables, lean proteins and healthy fats. In addition, I would stay away from soda and simple carbohydrates. Do not be afraid to experiment with different foods. Do not starve yourself; it is not going to help you lose weight. Focus on following a sustainable eating plan. What does it mean? It means that you should not think about dieting and trying to lose 100 pounds, or any amount of weight for that matter. Think about slowly altering your eating habits by replacing unhealthy foods with healthier foods. Portion control is obviously very important for those who need to lose weight. Keep that in mind, but do not be obsessed with counting every calorie you eat.
