Is a quick weight loss effective

Open up any newspaper or magazine. The first ad, you may possibly see is a slim trim pretty telling you all about her quick weight loss. Naturally, you are influenced by all these airy fairy dreams, but are they effective? Or are they scams? Quick weight loss is promised by diets all the time. "Lose 10 pounds over night," the ads will scream.

Most people know in the back of their mind that quick weight loss is either not healthy or is a short term fix. Most quick weight loss pounds are only water. Your body will flush water out of your system and the scale will show a quick weight loss of 3 to 10 pounds.

The quick weight loss is however short lived. The second you drink any fluids your body will hold the water and your quick weight loss will disappear. The short term success of quick weight loss in a low carb diet is also this loss of water. Dieters are excited when they see the quick weight loss. However, this excitement is short lived. Once carbs are introduced back into their diet, boom, there goes the quick weight loss.

Instead of being suckered into all the quick weight loss claims, why do you not try these common sense weight loss tips to use when dining out to help you achieve long term success? You will not see a quick weight loss by following these tips but you will see some great long term changes in your body. 1.) If you must have a dessert, split it with a friend. 2.) Start your meal with soup and a salad.

If you fill up on healthy foods first, you may eat less of the high calorie entries. 3.) Immediately ask for a box to go and place half of your meal in it. Not only will you cut calories but you now have an entire additional meal for later.

4.) Ask for non-fat or low-fat dressing on the side when ordering your salad. You can then control the portion size. A high calorie dressing can add 200-400 additional calories to your health salad.

5.) At a fast food restaurant, always order the small size. Did you know a super size French fry at Mc Donald's is 29g grams of fat and 610 calories? A couple of my friends tried a drastic way of making sure that they never ate creamy doughnuts again. I told you it was drastic, especially delicious doughnuts soaking in mustard and ketchup and peppered heavily. It made people stare, but it put me also, a non dieting spectator of doughnuts forever! Naturally, I would not suggest you take such a drastic step , but sometimes, some of these stunts help.

Once again, these simple restaurant tips will not result in quick weight loss but if you start using these and other weight loss tips every day, you will start seeing the long term success you truly deserve. Always think long term and do not be tricked by diets that promise "incredible quick weight loss".
