How to Lose Weight Easily, Fast, and for Free

 

Many weight loss companies market weight loss remedies that don’t actually work, but they make a lot of money off of it! Rather than falling for these scams, there are actually easy and very affordable ways to lose weight, and they may be more traditional than you think.

Do not change your diet, or at least not right away. You’ll want to wean your way into a healthier diet, but you should not go from eating over 20,000 calories a day to 1000 a day. This is actually really unhealthy for you, and can cause serious side-effects. If you want to be lean, then you have to wean.

Don’t go the easy way out. Throwing up after you eat and refusing to eat food to the point where your stomach hurts is horrible for your body, both physically and emotionally. If you are just starting to do this, stop before you become addicted to torturing your body. If you are in too deep, seek help as soon as you can. You can’t stop on your own, but admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery, as with any addiction. Professional help may be the only way you can stop, but that’s okay. Many Americans have and currently seek help for eating disorders, and you should not be ashamed if you do. If you are thinking about doing this, you need to stop before you get hooked in.

Even small amounts of exercise can be a huge help. If you rarely exercise or don’t exercise at all, don’t expect you can get up and run a couple of kilometres without any other preparation. Start by walking a kilometre every other day for a week, then walk two kilometres, then jog half a kilometre, and then continue to go up as you become fitter. Jog/run at your own pace and don’t feel intimidated by people running faster than you. Let them pass, they don’t care that you are in worse shape than them. You are proving a lot to yourself and others that you want to lose weight by taking the initiative to be healthier, and they will be impressed.

Get a fitness tracker, if you can afford one. While not required, I personally found that buying a fitness tracker motivates me to work out and eat healthier. You can get them for around $100 at most retail stores. If you have a smartphone, I would recommend getting the Fitbit Flex Fitness Tracker, which I currently own and am in love with. It also tracks how you sleep, which is just as or even more important then eating healthy and working out.

Get at least 8 hours of sleep. As I mentioned before, sleeping is actually just as important as working out or eating healthy. Your body thrives on sleep and needs sleep just as much as it needs exercise. Put away your electronic device before you step into the bedroom. Going into a deep sleep will give you the energy you need to take on the next day, and you’ll feel great. Like, two-cups-of-coffee-without-actually-having-coffee great. If you don’t get enough sleep, your body can’t process all of the healthy eating and exercising you are doing. Trust me, you’ll thank me later.
