  1. 1. How Fast Can I Lose Weight – By Cherie Ang How Fast Can I Lose Weight Weight in scientific term is refer as standing at rest on a weighing scale at the surface of the earth, your weight equals gravitational acceleration multiplied by your mass, balanced by the supporting force of the scales. Total body weight includes the muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments, and water in the body and the fat stored in the fat cells and the organs of the body. Fat is lighter by volume than lean body tissue. For example, a 'cup' of fat is lighter than a 'cup' of muscle. This explains why increased physical exercise (which builds muscle) may actually cause weight gain rather than weight loss - at least to begin with. Lose weight do not just lose fat. We will lose a combination of body fat, and muscle tissue. For example, studies show that when we diet, the weight we lose is on average 75 percent fat and 25 percent muscle.

Remember, water accounts for about 70 percent of the total body weight of an average person, with muscle tissue containing roughly 75 percent water (plus 20 percent protein and 5 percent minerals), and body fat containing roughly 50 percent water. The human body does not lose weight at a regular or uniform speed. Different people reduce weight at different speeds. This is because weight reduction is dependent on various factors, including: weight; diet and lifestyle; level of physical activity; health and genes (including metabolic rate); the level of stress experienced. Losing weight is a simple mathematical formula: You need to burn more calories than you eat. If you want to lose weight faster, you will need to eat less and exercise more. Bottom line: 1,050 to 1,200 calories and one hour of exercise a day. On this type of plan, you can expect to lose 3-5 pounds the first week, or more if you weigh over 250 pounds.

Avoid taking soft drinks or carbonated beverages; moreover replace them with water. Water helps in reducing weight in the most effective manner. • Do not stuff yourself with food in a single sitting; instead have 5 to 6 small meals or snacks in a day. Eating several small meals helps the body to release less insulin, which keeps blood sugar steady and helps to control hunger. The goal of weight loss plan should not be to lose weight, but to lose body fat. Exercise, in particular weight bearing exercise that builds muscle, will help prevent muscle loss and keep your metabolism from slowing. It is also necessary to eat nutritious, well-balanced meals in order to maintain muscle and support all the bodily functions necessary for weight loss.
