The Top 7 Ways to See How Fast You Can Lose Weight

1. How Overweight Are You?

The fatter you are = The quicker you'll lose weight.

A fatter person will lose weight FASTER than a lighter person because they have a higher metabolism or they require more calories/energy to maintain their current bodyweight. For example, On a 1500 calorie diet…

A fatter person will lose weight FASTER than a lighter person doing the same weight loss activity for the same amount of time simply because more calories are burned (takes more energy) to move a heavier person. For example…

So depending on how overweight you are it's not only safe to lose more than 2 pounds a week it's almost impoosible not to lose more than 2 pounds per week but as you lose weight your weight loss rate will slow down.

2. How Active You Are

The more active you are = the quicker you'll lose weight.

Your ability to recover & how much rest you need will all affect how intense, how long, how many times a week and how many times a day you can workout.

3. How Much You Eat

The more you eat UNDER the amount of calories you need to maintain your weight = the faster you'll lose weight. For example…

4. How Much False Fat

If your diet before starting any weight loss plan was mainly carbs, high in salt, you drank little water and/or ate these bad foods then you've more than likely gained a lot of false fat or water weight.

You can quickly lose or flush out excess water weight or lose 5-to-20+ pounds in your first week on any weight loss plan depending on how much false fat you gained from bad eating habits.

5. How Much Protein You Eat

Study after study after study shows that when protein is at least 30% of your diet you'll lose weight faster.

Use the calculator below to see how much protein you need to lose weight faster…

Type in how many calories you eat per day in the box below and then click the Enter button to see me how much protein you need to lose weight faster…

Type in how many calories you eat per day here →

You need to get at least grams of protein each day to lose weight faster

6. What You Eat

If you eat more weight loss foods and less bad foods then you'll lose weight faster & easier since you'll have less cravings and hunger that'll will cause you to eat more slowing down your weight loss.

Hello, my name is Gloria I have five kids 10, 7, 6, 3, 18 months I found that drinking 2 liters of water a day will help you loose weight drink water all day!
add a lemon sliced it up, and a pealed cucumber to your water holder. Exercise just do sets of ten move your arms around, walk up and down the hall way ten times, try lifting your legs in a marching position, move you legs in the air like a bicycle. walk, drink water. Eat only things you can make! nothing process, no fast food, no sugar, no soda, no bread, no noodles unless gluten free, no dressing too no dipping sauce unless light, fat free, no oil only bake chicken no oil, butter or greese use Pam spray no salt. Don't eat things that are precooked no microwave food I hope this helps good luck believe in your self 😀

I am a female, 5'2, 20 years old and weigh close to 220. Is it possible for me to lose 20 pounds per month? What can I do to achieve this? I don't know how many calories to eat, and what deficit I need to create. I have no idea how many calories I burn per day... it varies when I am at work I am on my feet alot but sometimes I sit... I have been struggling with my weight for years now and need some advice.

July 31, 2016

Adrian Bryant

use this workout and this diet and yes, for the first 2-3 months you may avg. 20 pounds per month with your weight loss rate slowing down as you get closer to your goal

First, good on you to try to help people and I do not want to be a buzzkill but WHAT you eat DOES matter. There are calories that will help burn fat and keep lean muscle mass. Calories are not equal. For example calories from coconut oil versus calories from a bag of potato chips are VERY different. Potato chip calories are empty. You can be 600 pounds and starving. Malnourished. Coconut oil is a natural thermogenic and will actually burn fat. The body will process these two caloric intakes very differently. Plus HOW you workout is very important......the longer you workout may help you burn more calories but there are ways to work out smarter. You have a great heart. I can feel it. I just think you might need to re-think your understanding of how diet, nutrition and weight management interact. Much love to you. Elle (L)

July 12, 2016

Adrian Bryant

Yes, protein calories will help you burn fat and maintain muscle but overall how much you eat (no matter what it is) will cause you to gain or lose weight.

You can gain or lose weight on coconut oil depending on how much you eat. remember there is no such thing as negative calorie foods.

yes, the smart way to workout for fat loss is HIIT which I explain here

I'm 28, 5'9" 289lbs...I started June 1 running/walking 20 mins a day for 6 day a week plus every other exercise in the book along with lifting weights and a low carb diet. I'm working my butt off, I haven't lost but 1lb.... It's very discouraging. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

June 10, 2016

RK

so can it be the first meal then?little sceptical if it would cause any stomach discomfort.can it be 46 gms at a time?I am first timer for whey.

June 10, 2016

Adrian Bryant

yeah, you can do that. you probably get more protein than that per meal when you eat regualr meats anyway

Hi there Adrian!

I am 30 years old, 5'5, and 174lbs. I am a mother of 4, but that is not where my weight has came from. I have been the same size, give or take 5-10lbs, since I was in high school. My weight is mainly in my stomach, as my legs and arms are pretty muscular. According to my bmi I am 30, and I am obese. I honestly want to lose my stomach weight. I am currently eating no carbs and no sugars. Eating vegetables, eggs, chicken and salmon. I haven't started exercising yet because my husband is deployed and my household is a handful right now! Do you have any recommendations?

May 01, 2016

Adrian Bryant

use this workout and this diet for busy moms like you

Jennifer

Hi. I'm 21 years old, 5'3" at 300lbs. I'm looking for the best diet plan and excercise regimen to help me drop weight at a rate of 3-5lbs per week. My current goal weight is 170. I'm currently not very sctive at all (just joined pf though). I tend to skip breakfast...and sonetines lunch. I know i need to eat on a better schedule, all three meals.
I've been overweight/obese almost my whole life, but once out of highschool (stayed around 200lbs during school years) the weight just picked on.
Any advice on diet plans and work out regimens? Thanks!

adrian what you say in the article is not true. i never have eaten over 2000 calories a day and I am a 52 year old, 300 pound woman standing at 5feet 4 inches. i started dieting at 1500 calories a day and walking. low carb high protein. my doctor has tested my thyroid. its normal. has ran a blood panel test on me and all normal. yet i have lost no weight. i drink plenty of water everyday. this is not the first time i have tried low carb high protein. i never lose weight no matter what i do. my knees are horrible. i struggle every day . sometimes there just isnt any hope.

April 21, 2016

Adrian Bryant

how are you tracking your calories?

April 22, 2016

treba

It's impossible not to lose weight on 1500 calories a day.

This means you are not measuring what you eat correctly and are eating more than you think you are.

Get a food scale and measure out everything you eat for a week. You also have to include everything you drink, coffee, creamer, fast food, sauces, etc. and log it on myfitnesspal or someplace you can keep track.

Try this experiment for 1 week. Buy healthy choice tv dinners that are 400 calories or less each and eat only those and nothing else 3 times a day and only drink water the entire week and then come back and say you didn't lose any weight.

Hi,

I am a 27 year old female (5 feet 3 inches) that weights 148. Is it realistic for me to lose 10 lbs in a month? I am on a 1,200 calorie diet.

March 30, 2016

Adrian Bryant
