How to naturally lose weight
fast
While there are endless diets, supplements, and meal
replacement plans claiming to ensure rapid weight loss, most
lack any scientific evidence. There are, however, some
strategies backed by science that do have an impact on
weight management.
These strategies include exercising, keeping track of calorie intake, intermittent fasting, and
reducing the number of carbohydrates in the diet.
In this article, we consider nine effective methods of weight loss.

Methods of weight loss that scientific research supports include the following:
1. Trying intermittent fasting
Intermittent fasting (IF) is a pattern of eating that involves regular short-term fasts and consuming
meals within a shorter time period during the day.
Several studies
have indicated that short-term intermittent fasting, which is up to 24 weeks in
duration, leads to weight loss in overweight individuals.
The most common intermittent fasting methods include the following:
Alternate day fasting 
(ADF): Fast every other day and eat normally on non-fasting days.
The modified version 
involves eating just 25–30 percent of the body’s energy needs on
fasting days.
The 5:2 Diet: Fast on 2 out of every 7 days. On fasting days eat 500–600 calories.

The 16/8 method: Fast for 16 hours and eat only during an 8-hour window. For most
people, the 8-hour window would be around noon to 8 p.m. A study on this method found
that eating during a restricted period resulted in the participants consuming fewer calories
and losing weight.
It is best to adopt a healthy eating pattern on non-fasting days and to avoid over-eating.
2. Tracking your diet and exercise
If someone wants to lose weight, they should be aware of everything that they eat and drink
each day. The most effective way to do this is to log every item that they consume, in either a
journal or an online food tracker.
Researchers estimated in 2017 that there would be 3.7 billion health app downloads by the end
of the year. Of these, apps for diet, physical activity, and weight loss were among the most
popular. This is not without reason, as tracking physical activity and weight loss progress on-the-
go can be an effective way of managing weight 
.
One study 
found that consistent tracking of physical activity helped with weight loss.
Meanwhile, a review study 
found a positive correlation between weight loss and the frequency
of monitoring food intake and exercise. Even a device as simple as a pedometer can be a useful
weight-loss tool.
3. Eating mindfully
Mindful eating is a practice where people pay attention to how and where they eat food. This
practice can enable people to enjoy the food they eat and maintain a healthy weight 
.
As most people lead busy lives, they often tend to eat quickly on the run, in the car, working at
their desks, and watching TV. As a result, many people are barely aware of the food they are
eating.
Techniques for mindful eating include:
Sitting down to eat, preferably at a table: Pay attention to the food and enjoy the
experience.
Avoiding distractions while eating: Do not turn on the TV, or a laptop or phone.
Eating slowly: Take time to chew and savor the food. This technique helps with weight
loss, as it gives a person’s brain enough time to recognize the signals that they are full,
which can help to prevent over-eating.
Making considered food choices: Choose foods that are full of nourishing nutrients and
those that will satisfy for hours rather than minutes.
4. Eating protein for breakfast
Protein can regulate appetite hormones to help people feel full. This is mostly due to a decrease
in the hunger hormone ghrelin and a rise in the satiety hormones peptide YY, GLP-1, and
cholecystokinin 
.
Research 
on young adults has also demonstrated that the hormonal effects of eating a high-
protein breakfast can last for several hours.
Good choices for a high-protein breakfast include eggs, oats, nut and seed butters, quinoa
porridge, sardines, and chia seed pudding.
5. Cutting back on sugar and refined carbohydrates
The Western diet is increasingly high in added sugars, and this has definite links to obesity 
,
even when the sugar occurs in beverages
rather than food.
Refined carbohydrates are heavily processed foods that no longer contain fiber and other
nutrients. These include white rice, bread, and pasta.
These foods are quick to digest, and they convert to glucose rapidly.
Excess glucose enters the blood and provokes the hormone insulin, which promotes fat storage
in the adipose tissue. This contributes to weight gain.

Where possible, people should swap processed and sugary foods for more healthful options.
Good food swaps include:
whole-grain rice, bread, and pasta instead of the white versions
fruit, nuts, and seeds instead of high-sugar snacks
herb teas and fruit-infused water instead of high-sugar sodas
smoothies with water or milk instead of fruit juice
6. Eating plenty of fiber
Dietary fiber describes plant-based carbohydrates that it is not possible to digest in the small
intestine, unlike sugar and starch. Including plenty of fiber in the diet can increase the feeling of
fullness, potentially leading to weight loss.
Fiber-rich foods include:
whole-grain breakfast cereals, whole-wheat pasta, whole-grain bread, oats, barley, and rye
fruit and vegetables
peas, beans, and pulses
nuts and seeds
7. Balancing gut bacteria
One emerging area of research is focusing on the role of bacteria in the gut on weight
management.
The human gut hosts a vast number and variety of microorganisms, including around 37 trillion
bacteria.
Every individual has different varieties and amounts of bacteria in their gut. Some types can
increase the amount of energy that the person harvests from food, leading to fat deposition and
weight gain.
Some foods can increase the number of good bacteria in the gut, including:
A wide variety of plants: Increasing the number of fruits, vegetables, and grains in the diet
will result in an increased fiber uptake and a more diverse set of gut bacteria. People
should try to ensure that vegetables and other plant-based foods comprise 75 percent of
their meal.
Fermented foods: These enhance the function of good bacteria while inhibiting the growth
of bad bacteria. Sauerkraut, kimchi, kefir, yogurt, tempeh, and miso all contain good
amounts of probiotics, which help to increase good bacteria. Researchers have studied
kimchi widely, and study results suggest that it has anti-obesity effects. Similarly, studies
have shown that kefir may help to promote weight loss in overweight women.
Prebiotic foods: These stimulate the growth and activity of some of the good bacteria that
aid weight control. Prebiotic fiber occurs in many fruits and vegetables, especially chicory
root, artichoke, onion, garlic, asparagus, leeks, banana, and avocado. It is also in grains,
such as oats and barley.
8. Getting a good night’s sleep
Numerous studies have shown that getting less than 5–6 hours of sleep per night is associated
with increased incidence of obesity 
. There are several reasons behind this.
Research suggests
that insufficient or poor-quality sleep slows down the process in which the
body converts calories to energy, called metabolism. When metabolism is less effective, the
body may store unused energy as fat. In addition, poor sleep can increase the production of
insulin and cortisol 
, which also prompt fat storage.
How long someone sleeps also affects the regulation of the appetite-controlling hormones leptin
and ghrelin. Leptin sends signals of fullness to the brain.
9. Managing your stress levels
Stress triggers the release of hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol, which initially decrease
the appetite as part of the body’s fight or flight response.
ADVERTISEMENT

ADVERTISEMENT
However, when people are under constant stress, cortisol can remain in the bloodstream for
longer, which will increase their appetite 
and potentially lead to them eating more.
Cortisol signals the need to replenish the body’s nutritional stores from the preferred source of
fuel, which is carbohydrate.
Insulin then transports the sugar from carbohydrates from the blood to the muscles and brain. If
the individual does not use this sugar in fight or flight, the body will store it as fat.
resulted in significant reduction in the body mass index (BMI) of overweight and obese children
and adolescents.
Some methods of managing stress include:
yoga, meditation, or tai chi
breathing and relaxation techniques
spending some time outdoors, for example walking or gardening
It is important to remember that there are no quick fixes when it comes to weight loss.
The best way to reach and maintain a healthy weight is to eat a nutritious, balanced diet.
This should include 10 portions of fruit and vegetables, good-quality protein, and whole-grains. It
is also beneficial to exercise for at least 30 minutes every day.

Some foods can increase the number of good bacteria in the gut, including: A wide variety of plants: Increasing the number of fruits, vegetables, and grains in the diet will result in an increased fiber uptake and a more diverse set of gut bacteria. People should try to ensure that vegetables and other plant-based foods comprise 75 percent of their meal. Fermented foods: These enhance the function of good bacteria while inhibiting the growth of bad bacteria. Sauerkraut, kimchi, kefir, yogurt, tempeh, and miso all contain good amounts of probiotics, which help to increase good bacteria. Researchers have studied kimchi widely, and study results suggest that it has anti-obesity effects. Similarly, studies have shown that kefir may help to promote weight loss in overweight women. Prebiotic foods: These stimulate the growth and activity of some of the good bacteria that aid weight control. Prebiotic fiber occurs in many fruits and vegetables, especially chicory root, artichoke, onion, garlic, asparagus, leeks, banana, and avocado. It is also in grains, such as oats and barley. 8. Getting a good night’s sleep Numerous studies have shown that getting less than 5–6 hours of sleep per night is associated with increased incidence of obesity  . There are several reasons behind this. Research suggests that insufficient or poor-quality sleep slows down the process in which the body converts calories to energy, called metabolism. When metabolism is less effective, the body may store unused energy as fat. In addition, poor sleep can increase the production of insulin and cortisol  , which also prompt fat storage. How long someone sleeps also affects the regulation of the appetite-controlling hormones leptin and ghrelin. Leptin sends signals of fullness to the brain. 9. Managing your stress levels Stress triggers the release of hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol, which initially decrease the appetite as part of the body’s fight or flight response.

  • 4. However, when people are under constant stress, cortisol can remain in the bloodstream for longer, which will increase their appetite  and potentially lead to them eating more. Cortisol signals the need to replenish the body’s nutritional stores from the preferred source of fuel, which is carbohydrate. Insulin then transports the sugar from carbohydrates from the blood to the muscles and brain. If the individual does not use this sugar in fight or flight, the body will store it as fat. resulted in significant reduction in the body mass index (BMI) of overweight and obese children and adolescents. Some methods of managing stress include: yoga, meditation, or tai chi breathing and relaxation techniques spending some time outdoors, for example walking or gardening It is important to remember that there are no quick fixes when it comes to weight loss. The best way to reach and maintain a healthy weight is to eat a nutritious, balanced diet. This should include 10 portions of fruit and vegetables, good-quality protein, and whole-grains.
