by : Peggy Edwards

So, you are fed up - and it's time to get rid of those excess pounds, and do it quickly! Nothing is more motivating than some quick fat loss to get you on the right track to making a permanent lifestyle change and keeping the weight off for good. If that sounds good to you then you will want to read the tips offered in this article, which should guide you to lose weight quick.

If you're going to lose weight quick, you need to follow a proven system. There are many different remedies out there that are available to you. You can take pills, have surgery, or follow a specialized diet plan. In any case, it is smarter to follow a proven system than reinvent the wheel. Depending upon your situation, any of the above could be your best option. Study the different options available to you and then make a choice based on what you feel will work the best for your situation.

Also, if you're going to start a weight loss program, you need to have a way to measure your results. Simply saying you want to lose a lot of weight is not good enough. You need to set an exact goal. In addition, you have to make sure the goal is reasonable and healthy. This involves talking with a health professional to assure that you will not be at risk.

It's true - if you fail to plan, then you plan to fail. And one of the best ways to ensure failure is not to measure your results. You cannot manage what you do not measure. Make sure to get all the right tools to measure your results and keep a journal on your weight loss so you know what is working and what is not working. Then you can just simply do more of what works and do less of what doesn't work.

Lastly, you need to understand exactly what true weight loss is. Many people can lose a lot of weight fast - only to regain it within 24 hours. This is because they are losing water weight. By sweating profusely when exercising you may be able to lose up to 8 or 9 pounds at one time. However, since it is all water it will be gained right back when you become rehydrated.

You do not want to lose muscle. Make sure you are losing unwanted and unhealthy fat.

By incorporating these tips into any weight loss plan you will be well on your way to losing those unwanted pounds.
