Fast Weight Loss Information
by Patrick Austin


Today, everyone wants to get results fast. We're an on-the-go society. This “quick results” thinking dominates the weight loss industry. If you happen to be overweight, you’ve probably thought about taking a pill that guarantees fast weight loss.

Unfortunately, most fast weight loss pills, creams, and patches are just gimicks. The companies that make and sell these products know that you are looking for a quick fix. Their marketing strategy is predicated on that. If you look at one of their boxes, I bet you will see a statement like “see results in two weeks”. These statements are misleading. You can achieve fast weight loss, but most of the weight you lose in the first two or three weeks is water weight.

Some of these fast weight loss scams include cortislim, weight loss patches, and electronic ab belts. Don’t waste your money on these things. They do nothing to help you lose weight and will only shrink your wallet.

People need to understand the difference between losing weight and losing fat. Losing fat is what most people want to do.

Reducing your body fat percentage is what you need to do in order to get a six pack of abs and great muscular definition.

The only program, in my experience, that causes fast weight loss in terms of body fat is the low carbohydrate diet. It works by putting your body in a state of “ketosis”. Ketosis basically means that your body uses its own stored body fat for energy rather than the carbohydrates it is fed. Of course, there are risks involved with this fast weight loss program. Remaining in a state of ketosis for too long could potentially cause liver and kidney problems. On top of that, you are at a higher risk for heart disease and clogged arteries.

But like I said, if you are trying to achieve fast weight loss before a special event, doing the low carb diet will provide the best results. Just don’t stay on it for too long.

People need to understand that not all carbohydrates are inherently evil. Complex carbohydrates are actually very good for the body. Simple carbohydrates are the ones that cause weight gain. What are simple carbohydrates? They’re foods like pasta, white bread, and potato chips. You need to replace these foods with complex carbohydrates like wheat pasta and multi-grain bread
