How To Lose Weight Fast and Safely
Reduce weight while eating pasta, bread, and grain? Hook me up! According to research from Timothy Ferri’s 4-Hour Body, it turns out that the low-glycemic index diet plan may be the safest and fastest means yet to drop pounds without feeling hungry. And that’s without-fat burning pills and liposuction. Now before we get to the “How To” part of losing weight fast and safely, have a look at the nice infographic we made just for you. This is your Excalibur in the quest for sexy abs:
How to Lose Weight Fast and Safely
I’ll save you the trouble of reading through the 500 pages of well crafted diet content in that book with just a few short rules:
Rule # 1: Avoid “white” starchy carbohydrates. This implies all bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, and grains. If you need to ask, do not consume it.
Rule # 2: Eat the exact same few meals over and over once more, specifically for breakfast and lunch.
Rule # 3: Don’t drink calories. Exception: One to 2 glasses of dry red wine per night is no problem.
Rule # 4: Don’t eat fruit. Fructose and glycerol phosphate leads to more body fat, more or less.Avocado and tomatoes are exceptions. Does this sound counter intuitive- after all your grandparents insisted on fruits for healthy living? There is factual basis for the fruit avoidance. Fruit, you see, is mostly sugar. Bags of sugar. So if you’re not burning off that sugar, you’re storing in your belly. Definitely not good.
Rule # 5: Take one day off each week and go nuts. I pick and advise Saturday.

Cheat Day Helps You Lose More Weight
Ferriss opines that Saturday is the preferred dieter’s cheat day to splurge. One day of increasing your calorie intake can increase weight-loss by ensuring your metabolic rate doesn’t change from excessive calorie restriction.
Advantages and disadvantages of Ferriss’s Slow-Carb Diet
Does this diet make good sense?
“The entire concept of preventing white carbohydrates that turn rapidly into sugar is an excellent thing to do,” says James P. Nicolai, MD, medical director of the Andrew Weil, M.D. Integrative Wellness Program at Miraval Arizona Resort & Spa in Tucson, Ariz
Likewise, “it can be useful to eat the exact same meals every day due to the fact that you don’t think about food, instead of ‘I am actually hungry and do not have food to eat,” Nicolai says. The latter can set you up for making unhealthy food options.
Personally I like this part of the diet. I’ve found myself going extremely lethargic after a plate of pasta or pizza.Eliminating these bolstered my energy levels to the stratosphere.
Ferriss is also big fan of ice baths or very cold showers. He writes that the cold causes release of hormones that help and speed fat loss. “Cooling can burn calories,” Weil says. “A glass of cold water prior to a meal can do the exact same thing.”
Enhancing the Fast Weight Loss Diet
Need to shed pounds really fast? Read on. I’ve thrown in several of my pre-competition tactics for Mr. Olympia contests to create a system that burns fat so fast, your abs would spin. Here’s all you have to do:
Mod 1: Upon rising in the morning, do 50 aerobic jumping jacks and 20 pushups. The workout combination is lethal. By engaging both the cardiovascular and muscular systems first thing in the morning without food in the body, you cause your body to burn stored fat. This further increases your metabolism by 20% for 24 hours.
Mod 2: Consume 50g to 100g of protein for breakfast. No carbs please. A pure protein breakfast helps you to feel full for extended periods and likewise jumpstarts your metabolism. Normally your hunger should be blunted well into 1pm on this regimen, but if you’re getting hungry earlier consider the Dr. Oz recommended African Mango. It’s a feisty low sugar fruit that chases off starvation- and melts off pounds.
Mod 3: When you’re in the shower, do 50 wall pushups coupled with 20 squats. This adds to the metabolic burn. Make it automatic the moment you enter the shower. Or the loo.
Mod 4: Ramp up your fat burning furnace all the more by mixing one shot of coffee with 4 onces hot water. It’s a natural stimulant. For a stronger metabolic response, you can use the fat burning green coffee extract which Oprah and Tyson used to slough off the spare tyre off their bellies.
Mod 5: Deep breathe at least five times a day for 3 minutes. Believe it or not, we can confuse stress or oxygen starvation for hunger. Deep breathing in rhythm is called pranayama and it floods your body with chi energy. More chi means better health and a powerful body. It’s free!
Mod 6: Lose weight fast and safely by eliminating all processed foods and salty foods. Replace your snacks with whole foods and your six pack will magically appear.
Mod 7: If you must snack, do so on raspberries. Raspberries are among the few fruits that actually melts fat the more of it you it. Here’s the weight loss science behind raspberries.
Mod 8: Never ever eat within 4 hours of bedtime. Never. It’s a key to losing inches but not weight rapidly
You now know how to lose weight fast and safely. It’s time for that new body you’ve always craved for. Go tiger!
