Losing weight and body fat fast is always a consideration when trying to shed pounds. Several diets promise fast weight loss, but much of their lost weight comes back because it's water weight, not body fat. Plans that suggest losing five or 10 pounds in a few days aren't the fastest way to permanently lose fat and weight.
Go to a cosmetic surgeon and ask about liposuction. During a liposuction procedure, fat deposits are removed from various areas in the body. Because the fat is taken off the body, liposuction is the fastest way to lose body fat and weight without any personal effort. The cost can range from $3,000 to $10,000. There are risks involved with liposuction. Liposuction is best performed over several sessions to prevent too much anesthesia, and to prevent complications from taking out too much fat at one time. Possible skin irregularities, such as depressions in the skin, can occur, according to the Liposuction website.
Talk to a doctor about gastric bypass surgery, a surgical option to lose weight fast. Gastric bypass or similar options are typically a last resort option because they can be very dangerous. The doctor cuts open the stomach and makes it smaller to prevent eating large meals. The patient then loses weight as the body takes in fewer calories. There are several risks associated with gastric options, including ulcers, bleeding in the stomach and infections, according to WebMD. Malnutrition is among the most common side effects of any gastric surgery, whether it is bypass or a band on the stomach, because the body might not get enough nutrients when food intake suddenly decreases.
Drink more water. Adding water to a diet will result in losing weight quickly at first by lowering water weight, and it is important for long-term weight loss as well. A body that does not have enough water becomes dehydrated and is less efficient. Water will also improve energy levels, suggests Weight Loss For All.
Minimize salt intake. Salt causes the body to hold more water. Lower salt intake by cooking at home and using fresh ingredients. Prepackaged or restaurant foods are often high in sodium, but fresh foods usually contain less salt.
Lower calorie intake. The key to weight loss is burning more calories than are eaten. This means taking in fewer calories. For fast weight loss, lower calories by 250 to 500 a day, Weight Loss For All advises. The suggested method is to substitute lower-calorie foods, such as snacking on fruit instead of chips or other high-calorie foods.
Add exercise to a daily plan. Talk to a doctor before starting any exercise regimen to work out the best plan for personal health. Start slowly and work up to harder exercises. For example, start with a daily half-hour walk and work on basic muscle-building exercises such as bicep curls with two-pound weights every other day. Then work up to a half-hour jog and five-pound weights. Slowly build up exercises for the best fat burning.
