Slim Fast Diet Plan To Lose Weight Quickly

A slim fast diet plan is what most dieters are looking for. We obviously want to change the way we look and feel about ourselves, but most of us do not want to wait forever to see the results we so desperately want to see. The good news is that there are ways to shed the pounds quickly without killing ourselves with hours of exercise and cutting calories to unsustainable amounts.

It is important to remember that one pound equals 3500 calories. Therefore, to lose one pound on a slim fast diet plan, you must somehow expel 3500 calories from your body, either by diet or by physical activity, or a combination of both. By making small changes in your daily routine, you can easily cut 250-500 calories out of your diet without even noticing that they are even missing. Here are a few ideas of easy ways to cut calories from your diet each day:

* Cutting just one can of soda per day equals 150 calories saved. If you drink a lot of soda, this can mean huge calorie savings throughout a day!
* Drinking regular coffee with low-cal sweetener instead of a late saves up to 400 calories.
* Eat meals on a salad plate. You will automatically eat about 15% less than eating on a larger plate.
* Eat Fruit instead of chocolate. The average candy bar has around 150 calories. Substitute a piece of fruit to satisfy that sweet tooth and save 100 calories.
Add a little more activity to your slim fast diet plan and your calories burned can really add up, too. You do not have to work out for hours per day at a gym to see results. By making simple changes in your daily routine can add up at the end of the week:
* Stand while you work for just two hours per day and burn an extra 100 calories.
* Mowing the lawn for just fifteen minutes will also burn an extra 100 calories.
* Vacuuming will not only make your house cleaner, but will burn 100 calories per half hour!
* Other housework will burn about 100 calories per twenty minutes of cleaning.
* Finding a parking spot that is a five minute walk from the door can burn up to 100 extra calories per day if you walk to and from your car just three times!
* Take the stairs for just 15 minutes per day instead of the elevator and calories will melt away!

As you can see, with just a little bit of effort, you can easily delete 250-500 calories per day. It does not take a lot of planning and effort to lose weight on a slim fast diet plan. If you have the desire to lose the weight and get healthy, you will find ways to make better food choices and to fit physical activity into your everyday life. By tweaking your activity level and eating habits ever so slightly, you can quickly lose one to two pounds per week! This type of slim fast diet plan is excellent for people who do not have time to spend their days worrying about what they are going to eat and when they are going to find time for the gym.

The Powerful Intermittent Fasting Diet

by : Elle Nash
I am here to share with you information about a new powerful intermittent fasting diet that is going to change the way you think about eating. A recent study on this type of eating gave researchers some amazing results to look at. Not only did participants experience weight loss, but they also had better health and were believed to live a longer life because of this diet. Now this should excite a lot of people because it certainly excited me. A lot of us want to lose that fat on us, but now we can lose that fat and extend our lifespan. I did a little more investigating into this diet and I'm going to share what I've learned about it.

The explanation of the intermittent fasting diet is actually quite simple. There is no restrictions on the foods you choose to eat. You can eat greasy burgers from any fast food joint or indulge in your sweet tooth. With intermittent fasting, your diet is structured by periods of eating and periods of fasting, which makes it quite different from a traditional diet. For a full 24hr period, you can eat what you want and as much as you want. The next 24hrs, you go on a fast with very minimal calories consumed. That's all it is and it repeats in a cycle. You may be thinking "well, if you're not eating for a full day, you're going to lose weight." Participants actually eat two regular days worth of food during there 24hr eating period, so there is no real change in calories consumed.

The intermittent fasting diet is getting more popular each day, but it is still relatively unknown to the mainstream. The great thing is that you can get into and start this diet long before anyone else ever gets a chance to. This way, people will be asking and they'll think you're one of the first ones.

Intermittent Fasting Diet Guide for Fat Loss

Welcome to Intermittent Fasting 101. This is a primer, or guide for the setup that I personally use for Intermittent Fasting for Fat Loss.
Here is the extremely basic summary of how it works:
  • On training days, eat 9 hours of the day and fast the remaining 15.
  • On off or cardio days, eat 6 hours of the day and fast the remaining 18.
  • Weight training 3 days per week
  • Cardio 2-4 times per week
  • Eat maintenance + 500 calories on weight training days
  • Eat 50% of maintenance on other days
  • Majority of carbohydrate intake is on weight training days
Again, this plan is specific to fat loss. Plans for mass gain (bulking) and maintenance will be coming soon. Please check my Intermittent Fasting Diet website for updates. Now for the detailed explanation of:

How to set up an Intermittent Fasting Diet for Fat Loss
Establishing Eating / Fasting Times
 The time of day in which you eat depends on if you are lifting weights that day, or not. On lifting days, your eating window is 9 hours and on off or cardio days, its 6 hours. You will need to be able to weight train and do cardio at the same time of day, as this will throw off the schedule.

Eating schedule for weight training days

The fast is broken by a pre-workout shake, 15-30 minutes before you being your workout and lasts for 9 hours. For example, since I workout at 1pm, my eating window begins at 12:30 pm and lasts until 9:30 pm. This can be inconvenient if you workout at say, 8pm, so I feel weightlifting at lunchtime or in the morning works best.

Next, we will look at setting up a schedule for off days or cardio days.

Eating schedule for off or cardio days
The fast is broken an hour after cardio is complete and lasts for 6 hours. In my case, I do cardio at 1pm, so my fast is broken at 3pm. It remains 3pm on off days.


Since I train Monday/Wednesday/Friday, the big picture looks like this:
 Monday: Fast ends at 12:30pm and begins at 9:30pm
Tuesday: Fast ends at 3:00pm and begins at 9:00pm
Wednesday: Fast ends at 12:30pm and begins at 9:30pm
Thursday: Fast ends at 3:00pm and begins at 9:00pm
Friday: Fast ends at 12:30pm and begins at 9:30pm
Saturday: Fast ends at 3:00pm and begins at 9:00pm
Sunday: Fast ends at 3:00pm and begins at 9:00pm

Determining Calories / Macronutrient Amounts:
 Now that you have set up your eating / fasting schedule, it's time to figure out how many calories,fat,carbohydrates and protein you will be eating. I realize that this might seem overwhelming at first, with all the math, but once you initially establish your requirements, it's really quite easy and routine.

If you aren't a math person, you can also use my calculator, to do the work for you.
Calories needed for Fat Loss
 Caloric requirements depend if it is a weight training day or an off/cardio only day.
To determine calories needed for fat loss, you must first determine the calories needed for maintenance. The easiest way to get an estimate is to multiply your weight in pounds by 15. For example, if you weigh 200 lbs, the total calories needed for maintenance would be 3000 calories per day.

Calorie requirements for weight training days:
 To determine calories on weight training days, take the amount of maintenance calories and add 500 to it. So for our 200 lb person, they would be eating 3500 calories on days that they lift.

Calorie requirements for off or cardio days:
To determine calories needed for off or cardio days, simply divide your maintenance calories in half. So for off or cardio days, our 200 lb person would be eating 1500 calories per day.

Macronutrient Breakdown:
Now that your calorie requirements for fat loss have been determined, it's time to figure out how much of each macronutrient you will be needing. The amounts will vary on if you are weight training that day or not.The macronutrients we will be using, will be the big three:
  • Fat
  • Protein
  • Carbohydrates
(Be sure to remember that fat has 9 calories per gram and protein and carbs each have 4 calories per gram.)

Macronutrient breakdown for weight training days:
The maximum amount of fat eaten per day is 30 Grams. It doesn't matter where the fat comes from, as long as 10 of these grams are in the form of Omega-3 Fish Oil.

To determine the minimum amount of protein per day, you multiply your weight by 1.25. Our 200 lb person will need a minimum of 250g of protein to preserve muscle. Sources don't really matter, just be sure to be mindful that you don't exceed the fat limit. Chicken, very lean red meat, fat free cheese and protein powder (whey or casein) are excellent choices.

Carbohydrates make up the remaining calories in your diet. Once again, sources don't matter, just be sure not to exceed the 30g fat limit and be you want to keep sugar below 100 grams. So in our sample person, he is getting 270 calories from fat and 1000 calories from protein. With the caloric goal on lifting days being 3500, that leaves him with 2230 calories left for carbs. Divide 2230 by 4 and you come up with a maximum carbohydrate amount of ~558 grams.

Macronutrient breakdown for non-lifting or cardio days:
As I mentioned earlier, calories needed for days that you don't weight train or do cardio are 1/2 of what your maintenance calories are. Here is the macronutrient breakdown:

Again, the amount of fat is unchanged from training days. The maximum amount of fat eaten per day is 30 Grams. It doesn't matter where the fat comes from, as long as 10 of these grams are in the form of Omega-3 Fish Oil.

On rest days or cardio only days, carbohydrate sources should only come from fibrous green vegetables and the trace amounts found in your protein sources, such as whey and cheese. The maximum amount per day should not exceed 20 grams.

The minimum amount of protein is your weight in pounds x 1.25. For our sample person requiring 1500 calories per day, he would be getting 270 calories from fat, 80 calories from carbohydrates and the remaining 1150 calories from protein. That would equal to ~287.5 grams.

Diet for Weight Training Days
Weight training will be a 3 day a week, full body routine. I personally use Monday-Wednesday-Friday, but the days are up to you, as long as there is a day off between workouts. Keep reading for my workout recommendation.

On training days, the fast is broken with a whey protein/carb shake, 15-30 minutes before your workout begins.

I suggest a mix of simple carbs and whey protein.
Protein = .25g/lb x weight
Carbs = .25g/lb x weight

Gatorade powder (not the pre-made liquid form) or a maltodextrine/dextrose blend is my pre-workout carb of choice. Keep fat to a minimum here.

Within 30 minutes of your workout, you have another shake, but this time, use a whey+casein/dextrose mix.
Protein = .25g/lb x weight
Carbs = .50g/lb x weight

The Rest of the day
Your first solid food meal of the day is 1 hour after your PWO shake. This will be the biggest meal of the day. Remaining meal times are up to you, but I recommend tapering your calories down until your last meal. Remember, with Intermittent Fasting, you don't need to eat every 2-3 hours. Just make sure that you meet your caloric/macronutrient goals. I do however, recommend a casein shake right before the eating period is over. Since it's a slow digesting protein, it will help keep you full longer.

Diet for Off or Cardio Days
Since calories are greatly reduced on off or cardio days, the eating window is shorter. It works best to have 2-3 good size meals, rather than the 6-7 you read about in muscle mags.
On cardio days, the fast is broken with a 50g protein shake, 1 hour after cardio is complete. Two hours after the shake, have your first "real" meal and continue until the 6 hours are up. As I mentioned earlier, carbs are limited to 20 per day and should consist of fibrous green vegetables and the trace amounts in food.

Intermittent Fasting Diet Weight Training Routine
Weight training is a full body 3 day routine. Again, exact days don't really matter, but make sure you have a day off in between workouts.You will be working the large musles only (legs,back,chest) on days 1 and 2 and will add in the smaller muscles arms/calves) on day 3. You will do 4 sets of 6-8 reps for each large muscle and 2-3 sets of 8-12 for the smaller ones.

Here is a sample workout routine:
Day 1: Push
Flat Bench Press / Shoulder Press / Leg Press / Weighted Crunches
Day 2: Pull
Rows / Chinups / Hamstring Curl
Day 3: Push/Pull
Incline Bench Press / Rows / Squats / Calf Raises / Lateral Raise / Barbell Curl / Tricep Pushdown / Lateral Raise / Back Extensions / Weighted Crunches

For maximum fat loss, cardio should be down 2-3 times per week. Start with a 5 minute warm up and then begin 10 minutes of High Intensity Interval Training, or HIIT. This works best on an elliptical or a spin bike, instead of a treadmill. You will do this in 1 minute intervals. Max intensity for 1 minute, followed by a moderate pace for 1 minute. Repeat until 10 minutes are up. After the HIIT session is over, drink some water and rest for 5 minutes. After your rest, do 30 minutes of Low to Moderate Intensity, Steady State Cardio. A treadmill works great for this. Don't forget to wait an hour and have your 50g of protein.
This is a basic summary of my preferred Intermittent Fasting Diet and Workout plan. Modifications/additions will be noted on the Intermittent Fasting Diet website as well as on my Intermittent Fasting Diet Blog if you have any questions, feel free to ask in the forum!

Best Fast Diets, Is Fasting Good For You?

Although for years my research into diets has always had a common approach - consume less, exercise more and don't skip meals. I felt that a diet that specifically said that fasting, or skipping meals, was good for you, was worth a look.

Best Fast Diets are probably explained most simply by the participant's belief in a 5 to 2 ratio. That is for 5 days of the week you eat normally and for 2 days you fast.
I have always assumed that fasting was one of the punishments that religions impose on their followers to keep them faithful. Didn't seem much of a reward for sticking to the rules to me, but let's get back to how the proponents suggest that the best fast diet works.

The best fast diet doesn't say starve for two days a week but does say reduce your calorie intake to a quarter, that is 500 for women and 600 for men. Also these calories should be consumed night and morning only, eat nothing during the day. Still sounds like a punishment to me.
Although they do say that if you are finding the fasting day difficult, relief is only one day away. Better than Mafeking I suppose.

When sifting through the opinions given by many who had tried the best fast diet, or were still on it, the overwhelming response was that the weight loss was both small and slow. I don't neccessarily think that this is a bad thing. Remember that in this case "fast" does not mean quick, further more slow and steady can win the race. Whether the weight comes of quickly or slowly is less important than if it stays off, permanently.
Although forums are not a true reflection of the effectiveness of the best fast diet there would appear to be a similar ratio of believers and leavers as most other diet plans.

Whether you reduce your weekly consumption of calories on two specific days or throughout the week the results would appear to be the same.

I am aware of the research that has been carried out for some time at the Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention project based in Manchester. As a result of their studies the scientists are forming the opinion that "levels of insulin and leptin fall quickly (within 24 hours) when we eat less, so cells can put more effort into staying in top condition".

No argument there then. Let us hope that their research will produce beneficial results in cancer prevention, but it shouldn't take years of research to conclude that eating less can keep your cells in better condition.
If you are dieting for health reasons or for vanity, and for most of us it's both, taking better care of yourself is just plain good sense.

What Is Slim Fast Diet Plan? Does It Really Work?

One popular diet program nowadays is Slim Fast Diet Plan. It is a program that follows a very simple set of steps that starts from the personalization of your meal intake. The goal of this is to reduce calorie intake by controlling the portions eaten while trying to provide a good nutrition, too. A typical plan is mainly consist of Slim Fast Meals along with a regular but sensible meal and several healthy snacks. Slim Fast meals are usually nutritious bars or shakes.

The Slim Fast Diet Plan is composed of four parts: Replace, Combine, Dine and Snack. Replace means eating a breakfast that is different from your usual ones. The suggested breakfast meals are Slim Fast Optima Rich Chocolate Royale Shake, Slim Fast Optima Chocolate Chip Chewy Granola Meal Bar, Slim Fast Optima French Vanilla Shake or Slim Fast Optima Strawberry Cheesecake Meal Bar. Each of these contains a balanced nutrition of a regular meal and 2-5 grams of dietary fiber.

The combine part of the Slim Fast Diet Plan involves mixing Slim Fast diet meals to those foods which you enjoy. Note that only 200 calories of your favorite food can be added to a Slim Fast product. An example of this meal is Slim Fast Optima Shake plus half of a turkey sandwich.

The third part of the Slim Fast Diet Plan, on the other hand, is based on eating sensible meals. The plan includes a Portion Size Guide which will help you decide which food to eat. Ideally, a sensible meal should be ½ a plate of vegetables, ¼ lean source of protein, and ¼ whole grain starch. A dessert can be a serving of a fruit or salad. All in all, this meal should contain at least 500 amounts of calories.

The snack part is composed of portions of calorie-controlled healthy foods. Slim Fast Diet Plan suggests fruits and vegetables such as an apple, half a banana, half cup of grapes or small cup of fruit salad. One of these healthy foods is to be eaten with snacks such as a Slim Fast Optima bar, 1 mini bag of light popcorn, a Slim Fast Optima Muffin bar or an ounce of pretzels.

As you may notice, Slim Fast basically works by controlling your food intake. It limits your meals to what it calls the sensible meals. While this may work for a few people, this may not be enough for those who need a higher amount of calories. This, in turn, can render you unstable and miserable through out the times you would be undergoing this plan.

So why not try a diet program that guarantees a weight loss of 11 lbs. in 9 days but will not sacrifice your food intake? Fat Loss for Idiots promises such amount of weight loss even if it will let you eat meals regularly. It will only change a part of your eating habit which is expected to trigger the fat-burning capabilities of your body.

At a price which is way, way cheaper than how much Slim Fast Diet Plan costs, the result from Fat Loss for Idiots is much, much more positive and motivating.

Slim Fast Diet

by : kalidas
Any dieter can tell you that if you use more calories than you take in you will lose weight. That's the basic formula of many diets, including the Slim fast diet. Let's take a look at the Slim fast diet to see just how effective it can be.

Before determining the general effectiveness of the Slim fast diet let's take a look at just how this diet works. The core of the diet is drinking Slim fast shakes in the place of two of your daily meals. The dieter can eat a sensible dinner, and can also eat two pieces of fruit and the Slim fast nutrition bar as snacks. This diet cuts about 1000 calories from the average male's diet, and 500 from the average female's diet – averaging about 1200 calories daily. Add exercise and you're sure to lose weight on this diet.

A good diet is easy for people to follow, and the Slim fast diet is easy. If diet is too hard to maintain it will never work. another healthy aspect of the Slim fast diet is drinking a lot of water – 6 to 8 cups everyday.

One great problem with the Slim fast diet is that it is difficult to get needed vitamins, minerals and other nutrients necessary for healthy living. Slim fast shakes and bars are simply not complete as far as nutrition. Another danger on this diet is to cut out the dinner meal. they think this will help them lose weight at an even more rapid pace. But that's a very bad idea because it's far too few calories, and multiplies the problem of missing certain nutrients.

Sometimes people eat two regular meals and replace one with the Slim fast shake –a modified Slim fast diet. many people tend to eat junk food at lunch, so replacing that meal with a shake is a good idea.

As long as you maintain a healthy amount of food, Slim fast diet can work for you.

Slim Fast has a get started plan to help you lose up to six pounds in just two weeks. The plan recommends no more than 1,200 to 1,500 calories per day along with daily exercise of at least thirty minutes. According to the Slim Fast website, most people lose at a rate of one to two pounds a week.

The shakes include the original shake, the Optima, low carb, high protein, and Easy-to-Digest which are lactose and gluten-free. Slim Fast's products include great tasting meal replacement shakes that come in a variety of flavors such as creamy milk chocolate, French vanilla and strawberry. The shakes can be bought in ready to drink cans and in easy to use powder. Then they have the Meal-On-The-Go bars and craving control snack bars.

Lose Weight Fast Diets -- Does that exist?

Lose weight fast diets are all over television channels, internet sites, news stands, radio airwaves, and anywhere else they can possible be seen or heard advertised. These diets are big business in America. Why are these diets such a huge influence over our lives? Well, statistics are showing that almost 60% of Americans are now in the over weight to obese spectrum. People are desperate to lose the extra weight and these lose weight fast diets promise quick weight loss.

Some of these diets promote unsafe eating habits, which do nothing but set the dieter up for failure. But some of the popular lose weight fast diets are based on sound diet advice and can actually be a healthy and fast way to lose weight. As long as the main principles behind the diet are healthy eating habits and they promote exercise along with better eating habits, the diet will work for most. Remember that cutting out whole food groups or cutting calories to dangerous levels will only force your body into starvation mode, causing more harm than good to your metabolism and health in general.

The types of diets that you should be looking for when considering lose weight fast diets, are diets that promote healthy eating. If the diet does not sound safe, it probably isn't. You probably already know that yo-yo dieting can ruin your health and actually stall weight loss. Make sure that the diet you are looking to try includes healthy food choices, adequate calories per day, and plenty of fruits and vegetables to make sure your body is getting all of the vitamins, minerals and fiber that it needs to function properly.

Diets that promote at least 1,000 calories or more per day for women and 1,600 per day for men should be avoided at all costs. These diets (dubbed fad diets) can cause more harm to your body than good and will stall your metabolism causing your weight loss efforts to fail.

It is important to remember also that exercise is a very important part of any weight loss program. Exercise is just as important as calorie restriction when you are trying to lose weight. This is why it is imperative when you are looking at lose weight fast diets to try, that the diet incorporates at least 20 minutes of exercise in addition to a healthy meal plan. Exercising does not have to consume your entire day, every day. There are simple ways to fit in your daily exercise and a diet that promotes this fact is sure to be a sound diet that is worth trying.

Whatever diet you decide to choose, remember that your health is always at stake. A diet that could potentially cause your health to fail in the future is not a diet worth trying. However, a diet program that promotes a healthy lifestyle and long term diet changes can literally be a life saver. No matter what diet plan you decide to try, remember that only you can change your life.

But do not worry much, because there are some strategies that can help you in losing weight after pregnancy to a great extent.

Breastfeed Your Baby
Breast feeding your baby is one of the best ways to lose weight after pregnancy. You derive a number of benefits from breastfeeding. To mention a few, increase in prolactin production, consumption of hundreds of calories per day and shrinkage in uterus size which was stretched out due to carrying the baby. All of these benefits, in turn, help you come back in shape over a period of time.

Exercising always helps a lot in losing weight. But your body would've undergone many changes during maternity. It needs time to come back to its normal state.

Fruit Juice Diet: The Advantages And Disadvantages Of This Diet

by : Charlie Raynedun

Fruit juice diet is usually a a version of the juice fast diet where a person would concentrate far more on fruit juices as opposed to the vegetables. For individuals who are still becoming familiar with the tastes of fruit and veggies and those which are still completely new to the entire idea of fasting for weight loss then this really is an incredible place to start.

One of the quite a few reasons why some people can't finish off a juice fast diet plan is the fact that they're having a actually tough time adjusting to the flavor and smell of fruit and vegetable juice that for some people it is in fact much more than a torture as opposed to a means for excellent health.

If you're one of those men and women then perhaps you could start off with a fruit juice diet first and gradually put vegetables like celery, broccoli and other veggies to your mix till you actually get the hang of it.

Many of you may be wondering, then why don't we just juice fruits for the entire fasting procedure?

The cause that we need to include a few veggies to our juice is the reality that fruits contain sugar and carbs which will stop our weight reduction. While, it is actually completely beneficial to enjoy fruits since it also includes a superb amount of nutritional supplements, if you want to focus on weight reduction then you have to make sure to start incorporating veggies to your juice slowly.

However, if you're simply dealing with a juice diet weight loss because you need to be wholesome and not for weight-loss reasons then you can go with a fruit juice diet.

The beneficial factor about this diet is the fact that simply because fruits taste very good it is going to feel like enjoying dessert rather than having a fast. You could additionally make some fruit juice for your kids to really encourage them to go healthy as well.

As pointed out above, a common difficulty is that the juice fast results of going through a juice fast simply by drinking fruit juice just isn't the same as the outcomes you would obtain by combining vegetables in the juice.

So, if you wish to actually shed weight throughout your fasting procedure then add additional vegetables in your juice than fruits. Usually, for some people, they merely make use of fruits as a strategy to sweeten their juice so that it does not genuinely taste as bad and you may likewise use this hint when making your personal formula.

Fruit juices are also an excellent way to satisfy yourself if you're starting to have some hunger pangs or in case you get hungry. Just take in a glass or two of your preferred mixture as well as a glass of drinking water and your food cravings should go away.

However, just a reminder, prior to you do decide to go through a juice fast process, it truly is crucial that you simply speak to your physician first. Though this diet is actually safe you'll find people that shouldn't be going through this process.

Again a fruit juice diet is often a great diet if you're just getting the hang of juicing but it is important that you also blend some greens in your juice to ensure that you could get the most effects of the diet plan.

The Ultra Slim Fast Diet

by : Jackie Serta

Slim Fast is another great diet aid that has been around for quite a while. From it's origins as a thick and gritty powder designed to help you stave off hunger to it's current incarnation as a line of weight loss products and meal bar supplements we have seen some amazing transitions and longevity in this particular product.

Slim Fast is becoming famous for the new flavors they have introduced and their steady stream of testimonials from those who have met or exceeded their goals by using the Slim Fast system. Using Slim Fast when dieting can assist those with little will power when it comes to chocolate and sweets achieve their weight loss goals by having the higher calorie shakes and snacks throughout the day followed by a sensible meal in the evening and indulging in their craving for sweets throughout the day. It's a good plan as long as those using it can manage to stick with the plan.

In the past Slim Fast would not have been a product I would have recommended for those needing to lose a large amount of weight. That has changed however in the last year or so as they have introduced a much more aggressive health and wellness plan that is appropriate to those who have more pounds to take off than the simple 20 or so vanity pounds that was typical of the Slim Fast user of the past.

When it comes to dieting, not all plans are one size fits all, nor should they be. It's good to see that Slim Fast is also adapting to meet the various needs of consumers. Not only does Slim Fast offer consumers shakes and meal replacement or snack bars that are convenient to use even when on the go but they also offer meals that you can prepare as well as healthy convenience meals to replace those evening meals when you are on the run. For those who like options, Slim Fast seems to have more options than ever before.

More than options however, it is good to see that Slim Fast, even after all these years, is still getting results by those who stick with the program. The truth is that the product wouldn't have been around this long if it wasn't working for someone along the way. Like many other weight loss plans, Slim Fast has taken to pushing the benefits of an active lifestyle in addition to the need for a healthy diet. There are some that will argue that you are not getting all the nutrients you need from drinking shakes but it could be reasonably argued from reading the label that the average shake contains more vitamins and nutrients than a sad margin of people consume on a daily basis.

Whether your dieting goals are very short term and specific or long term and lifestyle altering, Slim Fast can assist you in reaching those goals. This is a lifestyle adjustment in itself though and you must be prepared for a new way of eating in order for this plan to work for your specific dieting needs. If you haven't checked out Slim Fast lately and you have made the decision to lose weigh but are uncertain how to go about it, perhaps it's time you take a second look at the Slim Fast line.

Water Fasting Diet: The conclude author of Youth, upper hand Loss, Healing and cumulation. wrap up Into The Power!

by : Indra Widaryanto

There is, however, something that I want to emphasize right from the start: FASTING IS NOT A QUICK produce OR THE PANACEA FOR thorough ILLS. It takes hard force and dedication to reach our goals in any field. This is no different. Yes, the weight loss and health benefits are amazing, but one has to be willing to go for some listlessness BEFORE again next the fast. What I mean is this: Fasting for 100 days solitary to return to a diet of pizza and cheeseburgers is insanity. For LONG-LASTING results, it is indispensible considering one to make PERMANENT eating-habit changes once the fast is over.

Indeed, water fasting is a exceedingly compelling and natural tool to help you evade weight also cleanse your body of toxins again disease. I remonstrance opine that it is by wide the most potent source of healing also rejuvenation familiar to man. That is why I always refer to indubitable as a Fountain of Youth. representative bedew fasting amenability recurrently foster dramatic anti-aging effects. But it is wise NOT to jump blindly matter a fast longer  than three days without suitable preparation. If you are a beginner, I induce that you with a really into fast. Skip one eats a day - say lunch - further pabulum a healthy of soak as replacement.

Do this for a unreduced eternity. That alone will give you a pertinent idea of what fasting is all about. You will be exposed to fondness pains and detox symptoms. But you will also get to experience the increased energy, mental clarity and sense of advantage that fasting provides. A partial water fast will make the detox process less cramped. bodily is a wise preparation step! I learned it the hard way. Going from a full-course fatty meal to fasting is a recipe over depression. Many highly toxic & chubby populace - like I was - exertion from never fasting to a full-fledged water fast overnight. They are rapidly floored by the harshness of the hunger training and husky detoxification symptoms. Do a partial lickety-split instead further make it easier for yourself!

24-Hour Fasting

Once you settle a taken fast as described sizable for a few weeks, therefrom rear fasting for short periods of point. rear with a 24-hour racing. Don't think that to attain a benefit you HAVE to fast for months. That is not true. Fasting for longer periods of time will foster new detoxification and, of course, greater oversight obliteration. But effort you can begin opportune NOW is more than enough to work out you started! obvious by simple you authority work your way to longer and longer fasts, if your health so allows it.

Do not hurry and please bear it easy.

IF YOU opine MADE UP YOUR knowledge AND ARE READY TO obtain A 24-HOUR FAST,

Water Fasting - 24 Hour Fasting
* Choose the innate day in which you plan on carrying out the fast. If possible, select a infinity that is NOT packed keep secret activities and engagements. Sunday is a correct stretch. But don't procrastinate. Choose a day and - achieve IT! Water fasting allotment also going now a inborn point is not optimal but possible nonetheless.

* impel unambiguous that you have good quality water! moment most cities have decent resolve water, this is an occassion for you to give yourself the very optimum. If you don't lap up a water filter, now would show a good time to get one. If you inclination the best, i recommend water ionization. Stock up on seltzer wet and green tea.

* explicate at early only person close to you of your intentions, but DO NOT shout it from the rooftops. Trust me with this one. There are many who cleverly will not conclude and may planed try to talk you out of fasting. But, by unexpurgated means, make explicit to have human support. activate it a point to run our Fasting Forum I and/or Fasting Forum II and join the community conversation.

* At least unaccompanied WEEK before the fast, diminish your intake of sugar, fats and caffeine. The stricter you are with this particular step, the easier the fast will steward. Caffeine detox can cause forward headaches. If your habitus is bull with sugar and grease, I guilt limn you what the thirst shot further detox symptoms will appear as more uncomfortable than they have to be. Eat salads, steamed vegetables and lean poultry and fish as much as possible. Also, conceive to drink at the quite introductory one-half gallon of moisten colloquial. The wet again the reduction of sugars, fats and caffeine will move your bowels and kick-start the detoxification process.

* Purchase a bottle of a herbal cleanser like Herbs & Prunes and construct to bear
one-two-four tablets daily, also for seven days prior to the fast. In combination stash the change in diet and ensue in water-intake, this inexpensive yet extremely-effective cleanser will initiate to act on powerful bowel movements. This will commence to purge your digestive system of built-up fecal purpose adhered to the walls of the colon. This pre-fast cleanse entrust reduce the lechery pains and detox symptoms now many of the toxins in your bowels cede immediate regard been eliminated.

* Eat your last meal at around 8PM the black before the second of the expeditious. On the morning of the fast, think two full glasses of water upon awakening to get the bowels going. Take two-to-four tablets of the Herbs & Prunes reserve a cup of green tea go underground a pinch of lime. SORRY, NO mouth-to-mouth OR HONEY. fling through your day as planned, making de facto a point to drink in that much water as easy. Every time the hunger intention hit you, drink massed two glasses of water. If you have to leave your home, make explicit to take convincing irrigate with you, along with at least two or three bottles of seltzer. I usually take a whole gallon of water and six-pack of seltzer when I have to go out. Refrigerate the water when you get to your destination. If no refridgerator is available, keep the bedew as cool because possible further away from holocaust and sunlight.

* At around noon, when hunger strikes, crack open a bottle of seltzer and drink it slowly. You restraint add a hole of lime to the seltzer for taste. I have found seltzer moisten to substitute very felicitous spell curving hunger essay. If you are nice the Herbs & Prunes, you will be having individualizing bowel movements. accordingly inaugurate hard to stick to fairly follow through to a bathroom.

* By around 3PM, you will certainly conceive to quite feel the ardor battle and may
experience the beggining of the detoxification symptoms. Consider yourself fortunate ... your body is working difficile to rid itself of toxins that were curtailing your health.
Drink more water and seltzer. Have a cup of green tea for energy. You're almost there! I also encourage you to livelihood a fasting ledger and spend time writing your thoughts, feelings in sensible. Jot down how you are feeling physically further mentally. record any predilection swings or particular symptoms that say so out more than others. This information will be very useful for future fasts.

* foodstuff more water again seltzer through the rest of the afternoon again understand ONE more cup of green binge if you need it. When the clock hits 8PM, you are done! Break the fast initially by drinking a glass of watered-down orange or grape juice. About ONE HOUR later, have a bowl of sliced apples and pears. One apple and one pear is more than enough.

DO NOT HAVE A FULL-COURSE MEAL! That importance make you very sick. Eat fulgid and bid TO BED!

* significance the AM, drink another two flying glasses of bedew upon arising and presuppose a illumined breakfast of fruit also oatmeal, preferably curtain low-fat milk. This is a good occasion to strongly think about your life further future and consider permanently changing your eating habits because the better.
Stay Connected Water Fasting Support besides Motivation
Do not embody a individual ranger - enthusiasm to be a obscure wet fasting gargantuan to the comission of people close to you. One of the biggest mistakes most beginners cause is to stop eating abruptly considering they desire to lose weight. They start wet fasting overnight further bid to keep it a secret. Or they energy the fast, but soothing omit to inform a select few of what they are doing.
Water fasting is a physical powerhouse that can nuke filth from your plan and give you an landscape on life you never thought viable. It is, in some ways, supernatural. Yet it is the toughest of all types of fasting because you receive no taste or substance in your body for the alloted time - exclude for the water itself. My longest humidify fast was 60 days, and most of present took place rule a hare-brained where there were at least five people who knew what I was doing. Without the support of a selected few, I may not have imaginary it.

Overcoming Limitations

If you are reading this, certain is because consequence your soul you realize that competent has to be more to life than what you have been experiencing. There is perhaps an instinct inside of you that wants to overcome limitations and experience a better life standing.

Don't eliminate reading my friend. This power be the beginning of the rest of your
enterprise. And, amazingly, all you need to effect the convert is - bedew and guts.
One of the questions I am always asked when somebody is starting with fasting is: How much wet should I drink? My object is - pabulum as much water as necessitous to keep you going. It is not unusual because me to drink sole or planate two gallons of water a day when I am fasting.

Some people dispute against the intake of grand amounts of water, indicating that to do so is to risk becoming "water poisoned." There have been cases of irrigate Poisoning, but these are the extreme examples. Just use common sense.

As I said, seltzer water with a little lime helps to settle the stomach further appease
water fasting hunger pains. That has worked wonders for me at some ever harsh water fasting moments. stab not to fare water that is utterly cold. The closer to prayer temperature it is, the better. Again, that is just a recommendation based on what has worked for me. transact your time and try different temperatures of water until you find the one that grants you the most comfort from the hunger pains.
Water Fasting Bowel Movements

When first water fasting, you will likely have to bustle for the toilet with frequency. The
frame is not used to cognate large shots of liquid; the water pushes on the colon further induces the erasure of toxic fecal residue. At this point, between the greatest and investigation day of water fasting, the desert coming out of your body will be from recently-consumed food. recipient to the generally "years-old" dregs stubbornly attached to the colon consign take a little longer. That is where the true miracle lies

The best gate to accelerate the colon cleansing operation is to massage your stomach, pressing in with both hands eventuate. First bear down the top of the colon, then the bottom... then the liver. Repeat this several times a day when water fasting. The point is to drink large amounts of water, besides then to manipulate your abdomen to maximize the numeral of dried again toxic waste eliminated from your figure. Drinking large amounts of water is NOT the same as drinking juice or soda. bedew is unquestionable life ... soda besides artificial juices are not.

The Powdered Juice Dilemma

Many people generally tell me that they neatly deliver not like to drink plain water in
large quantities. That they would much prefer to disseminate embodied hide some type of sugarless powdered juice so veritable can experiment down additional smoothly. This, in my opinion, is baloney.My answer, for the most part, is that many bodies have become for accustomed to raze that they insist on continuing to sniff it - even after stepping out of the manure pit. This may sound harsh, but the message I am attempting to aggression home is that water fasting should be just that. It should not be Kool-Aid fasting. Tough it out and get your body used to drinking pure water off-track additives. Remember, manifest does it.

New Fast Weight Loss Diets - The Latest 3 Types Of Dieting For Quick And Natural Results

by : Avy Barnes

Have you been going on diets only to end up with the same results every time... which is NOTHING? Are you tired of being promised quick and easy results, only to find that the said diet took forever just to lose a couple of pounds, and it was very difficult to stick to? If this is the case, you are certainly not alone! Millions of people get caught up in the fad diet craze... and this only because of clever advertising. I was a victim of fad dieting before, and since I was determined to get myself in better shape, I later on discovered a program that was not as popular as the most common diets you hear about, but yet this diet helped me drop 52 pounds in 8 weeks... permanently. Go figure!

Having said that, there are some new fast weight loss diets (including the one I went on) that I wanted to talk to you about today. These are the types of diets that you are going to rarely hear about, but yet and still these are the types of programs that are sure to bring you quick, easy, and permanent results. The primary reason why these diets work so well is because they are based entirely around proper nutrition.

Alright, here are the latest 3 types of diets helping people lose weight quickly and naturally:

Strategic cheat day dieting...
This type of diet is pretty much like exactly how it sounds. It's based around having cheat days in a strategic pattern. The way it works is you will eat very healthy for x amount of days, and then on specific days, you will have cheat days. This kind of program, as you can imagine, is very easy and fun to follow. Also, it works because it will cause a boost your metabolism. The only gripe I have with it is that some people may find it hard to stick to a diet like this if they are having a hard time doing away with the foods you love. If you are obsessed with particular bad foods (cookies were my kryptonite!), then I wouldn't recommend a cheat day diet at first.

Intermittent fasting dieting...
This type of program is based around eating very healthy and nutrient packed meals on specific days, and then you fast on different days. Some people will immediately dismiss a diet like this since most people know that by starving yourself, you are only going to slow your metabolism down. Well, this is not the case with this type of dieting. You have to fast in a very special way in order for it to work effectively. In fact, with this type of program, it's designed to actually skyrocket your metabolism and boost your bodies fat burning hormones.

Rotating calories...
This is the type of diet I went on that helped me lose 52 pounds in 8 weeks. Basically, it's based around eating 4-5 nutritious and delicious meals a day. Eating more often is one of the biggest steps to boosting your metabolism. However, it is also based around rotating the calories you are eating around. Why is this the case? Well, if you eat the same way all the time, your body gets accustomed to this pattern and the metabolism will settle down. If you on the other hand strategically rotate (better known as shifting) the calories you are eating around, then you will keep your metabolism elevated and you'll skyrocket your bodies fat burning hormones.

Bottom line...
Have you noticed a similar theme with all of the diets above? Yup, you got it... all of those diets above are based around getting proper nutrition and boosting your metabolism. They have nothing to do with low-carb, low-fat, getting expensive prepackaged (and processed) meals delivered to your home, etc. If you want amazingly fast results (without regaining the weight back), then one of those diets above (or any diet that doesn't have you restricting foods all the time) is what I highly recommend you consider.

By the way, if you want to Melt Away Fat QUICKLY and permanently drop 9 pounds EVERY 11 DAYS, then the diet program I used and that I highly recommend is the "calorie shifting diet" from Fat Loss 4 Idiots...
I lost an amazing 52 lbs. of fat in 2 months using this popular online fat loss program... and it all has stayed off FOR GOOD! It works because it naturally raises your metabolism by having you eat REAL FOOD...

Is a Water Fasting Weight Loss Diet Genuinely Harmless?

The origins of water fasting weight loss happen to be in fact of religious beginnings. Fasting is part of numerous religions as a display of commitment to the cloth. Water fasting weight loss has also been a resource put into use for demonstration and publicity. The human body is getting deprived of sustenance and the actual torment that the faster will be vulnerable to is actually beyond fathom. It is unbelievable that people would want to subject themselves to this.

A extensive range of individuals make use of fasting to obtain rapid outcomes and to lose weight. The diet plan of water fasting beckons with several positive aspects. Since water does indeed not really cost you anything to acquire, the price of the diet is actually quite small. Because simply no food is becoming absorbed, the zero cost water is the only thing necessary. Next, a person can certainly accomplish weight loss gains very fast. Without consuming food, your body actually starts to utilize its very own supply of food. One's body draws on the excess fat in order to support its required energy. Third, it detoxes one's body. The condition of detoxing happens when your body is flushing out the elements that are toxic but not reconsuming them. Last of all, fasting is definitely attained. The only prerequisite is enough willpower to stay away from food. Every person can be capable instantly of accomplishing this. No nutritional alterations ought to be furnished. Simply no special meals or nutrients have to be bought. The dieting switch can instantly be turned on.

The effects of water fasting weight loss diet plans can benefit your body. All the water that goes through the system doesn't include calories or any fat. The water will also function in eliminating the kidneys of poisons that collect in it. The kidneys produce urine which in turn helps to flush the bladder and helps protect against urinary tract infections. Drinking enough water can actually suppress appetite so you are not feeling as hungry during water fasting weight loss. Skin conditions can improve by the properties of water. After all, the human body is about thirty percent water so a water fasting weight loss plan should be regarded as holistic and all-natural.

Weight that is shed from a water fasting weight loss program can be quite numerous and also very dangerous. Each person is different so the weight loss will vary but could be upwards of four pounds a day! The negative aspects of water fasting weight loss can hide behind these incredible amounts of weight lost. The water faster goes in with the belief that she will only be on the water fasting weight loss diet plan for a short time to achieve the desired results. After a few pounds, the dieter wants more gains and she stays on the diet convinced that it isn't dangerous.

Exactly how water fasting results in weight loss isn't rocket science - but it is biological science! Calories that are consumed that do not get burnt off with work are converted into fat. This fat is storing energy that the body can use in time of need, such as when food is not present. If one continues to overeat, these stores of energy are never called upon thus they are continuously added to by the extra calories. The striking thing is that our bodies are naturally fighting water fasting weight loss! If a person begins to fast, not only is the body calling on the fat for energy, it is also slowing down its metabolism to prolong the usage of the fat. This results upon returning to consuming food, the body is still slow to metabolize. Fat build-up increases as the body in it's slow metabolism does not require all the energy that it naturally required prior to water fasting weight loss. In sum, more weight will be acquired and all the weight that was lost will regain when you return to a normal diet routine from a water fasting weight loss diet.

There are scientific studies that tend to favor water fasting weight loss, but they are presented in skewed fashion. Calorie reduction in diets has had studies observe longevity effects on humans and rodent subjects. Diseases that correlate to aging have been thought to be delayed by water fasting. Such examples of diseases that could be delayed are diabetes, heart disease and Alzheimer's disease. Water fasting weight loss could also lend to arteries that are more deplete of plaque and cholesterol. This is a result of the truth that the foods that give rise to this condition are being abstained from and not ingested.

It is not correct assume that the medical field is a proponent of a water fasting weight loss diet plan. First, the subjects of the study weren't followed long enough to see if water fasting could result in a longer life expectancy. Second, the human body requires a wide variety of minerals and vitamins to remain healthy. Water is not a sufficient source of these minerals and vitamins. Additional nutrient requirements of the human body are also absent in water. The conditions that can result from not getting enough nutrients are dizziness, gallstones, dehydration, fatigue and constipation. The ultimate risk is of death or serious bodily harm if you fast for too long.

Medical professionals recommend not to fast if you suffer from any one of a number of medical conditions like diabetes. Water fasting weight loss diets can result in uncontrolled blood sugar levels that could result in blood sugar comas that could lead to death. Being pregnant and fasting is a very lethal combination. Our bodies our designed to gain weight during pregnancy. The developing baby will be without the fundamental vitamins and nutrients of life if the mother intends to water fast. Vitamins and pills are not an adequate substitute for what is found naturally in the foods that we consume every day - meats, poultry, fruits, vegetables, dairies and grains.

Even if you come to the conclusion that water fasting weight loss is unsafe but still yearn to fast to lose weight, consult with a licensed medical practitioner prior to commencing. A doctor will discuss if it is safe and appropriate for you. Too many unfortunate consequences can result from water fasting weight loss. Be cautious and educated to reduce any risks that you may face.

Immediately after acknowledgement that following a sensible food program is the way to great lifestyle, I have turned out to be on the list of primary advocaters of discovering diet plans to lose weight.

1. Drink at least 2 liters of water a day.
This is probably the most effective way to obtain fast metabolism. After a couple of days of constantly drinking 2 liters of water a day, everything you eat would come out very fast. You will experience your body responding soon enough. The water washes off all the remains that had been stuck in your stomach for years, which were impeding fast digestion, and flow of the food in the intestines. It opens up the way for the food you eat to get through your system much quicker before it even turns into body fat.

2. Spread your meals throughout the day.
It is much better to have 6 small meals than 2 big meals. So, eat a lot in small portions. Therefore, your stomach does not work for half an hour intensively and rest for a long time, but it gets your stomach working mildly the whole time.

3. Do not stop eating.
This is the most critical mistake that people make when they start a diet. This messes up your metabolism. So when you start eating again, it would accumulate everything that you eat in your stomach, so eventually your metabolism will be slower than ever. So keep on eating, but eat healthy. No junkies from now on.

If you think you are totally ready to keep on doing these three things as you promised, I think you are ready to move on to the next step.

Now, let us take a look at some exercises [] and meal plans [] for fast metabolism.
