What is the easiest and quickest way to lose weight?

I’m quite a bit overweight and I want to know what is the easiest and quickest way to lose weight. I have tried to starve myself, and it didn’t work (I won’t be doing that again xd.) I’m taking these diet pills which make you less hungry and suck up any fat, but I’m getting annoyed with taking them.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Stop snacking. It worked for me.
    Go for a walk each day.

    Buy a Wii Fit (it worked for me too!)

    It’s not going to be ‘quick and easy’.
    Just exercise and eat healthily and you’ll lose weight sensibly. If you try and use a ‘quick fix’ method, sure, you might lose weight quickly. But you’ll put it – and probably more – back on even quicker.

    lighter life or cambridge diet but i think you need to be about 3 stone overweight and you need the permission of your doctor.Google them to find out more….good luck!

    if you have more than 3 stone to lose, try a few of my friends tried it and lost 4st and 6 st in 14 weeks. its £66 a week and that includes all meal replacement packs, like yummy soups, shakes and bars and a weekly meeting which addresses the reasons to why you overeat and how you associate with food. It really does work. I hope this helps.

    The best way is probably not the quickest, but it is the way to ensure the weight stays off! Keeping weight off means adopting eating habits that become a way of life, so no gimics and no pills! Make sure you have a balanced diet, which includes items from all the food groups, but no high fat foods, very little sugary food (lots of fresh fruit and vegetables instead), and very little alcohol. Portion control is also important and some find that using a smaller plate for their main meal is very helpful. For myself I found the discipline of attending a weekly session at Slimming World to be a great help; this type of class also promotes eating for life and you receive help,advice and support that will set you on the right path for a healthy lifestyle. Good luck! By the way, although exercise should always be encouraged, don’t embark on exercise that you’re not prepared to continue after you’ve achieved your weight loss; I’ve seen people drop the exercise following weight loss, and the pounds have piled back on!

    exercises and a good diet your doctor can help you with a good diet and exercise plans there is no quick way to loose weight

    Salads: Make salads with tomato, car rot, beetroot, cabbage, capsicum, lettuce, or cucumber all low in calories-your diet staple, to liven them up, you can use curd or lemon as a salad dressing. Sandwiches too, are a goods way to have these raw vegetables. The bread helps fill you up, but don’t use butter-spread a coriander-and-mint chutney instead would do good.

    Grapes: Instead of munching your way through a packet of biscuits after a hard day, try grapes instead. They’re high in sugar, but as long as you don’t overdo it, they offer the same soothing hand-to-mouth action with none of the fat. They’re especially good chilled besides, a hundred grams of grapes contain only 70 calories.

    Oranges: The more slowly you eat; the easier it is to recognize your body’s satiety signals. And what snack takes longer than peeling and sectioning an orange? Oranges have only 48 calories. (200 ml of orange juice, with all the fiber gone, has about 115).

    Potatoes: Surprised? The problem is not the potatoes, but the way they are cooked . Finger chips or other forms of fried potatoes are high in fat. But if baked or boiled and eaten without fatty accompaniments, potatoes are great for your diet. Have them mashed, adding pepper and a dash of lime. Or stuffed-as in aloo parathas, prepared without oil or ghee of course. (If you must have finger chips make them in the microwave). Potatoes contain only 97 calories.

    Sweet potatoes when boiled have a naturally rich taste and creamy texture. They have 120 calories more than potatoes – but they’re delicious even without accompaniments. And although they belong to a different botanical family, calorie they’re just as nutritious as regular potatoes.

    High fiber cereals: By providing bulk, some cereal-based foods, too, fill you up on relatively few calories. They include chapattis, roasted corn on the cob, dhokla or idlis, and white rice upmas. Other breakfast choices could be oats, poha, or rice wheat-or- corn-flakes low in sugar’. Pour skim milk on the flakes. If you prefer them sweet, add chopped fruit.
    Sprouted pulses: When pulses are sprouted, they gain vitamins and fiber. Eaten raw, they’re good for slimming. Moong, for instance, sprouts quickly and its sprouts taste good raw. A 50-gram serving has about 140 calories. Raw sprouts of other pulses-rajma, broad beans and dried peas for example-can be made more palatable if they’re steamed, though this lowers their nutrient value.

    Curds: If made from skimmed cow’s milk, curds contain only 56 calories and are a good source of protein, calcium and vitamins, Plain curds with a little fruit is delicious as a dessert.

    Water: Research shows that snacking in particular is often the result of mistaking thirst for hunger; write Tarla Dalal and Dr Swati Piramal in East Your Way to Good Health. Water has no calories, so it’s great for filling up. Those who find it a plain bore can quaff low-calorie drinks that contain mostly water such as buttermilk, coconut water, and watermelon juice. Clear vegetable or dal soups are nutritious and don’t have many calories, avoid cream soups.

    Air popped popcorn: That’s popcorn made without butter, oil or salt. Pop it your self in a container with a lid, either over a stove or in a microwave oven. If quantity affects the quality of your eating experience consider that four cups of air-popcorn have only 100 calories and one gram of fat. Compare that to potato wafers-four cups have about 600 calories and 40 grams of fat.

    Chocolate bar: To avoid binges, it’s important to indulge yourself once in a while. An occasional 20-gram chocolate bar-about the size of a small 5 star-is a good choice for sweet-tooth cravings, because it’s individually pack aged and thus less risky than cake, ice cream, or puddings.

    A diet containing these foods can help you lose weight, but don’t neglect exercise. Scientific studies have shown that calories intake is not necessarily higher in the obese than in normal people. It’s energy expenditure that’s often lower in those who are overweight. So make sure your weight-reduction plan gives equal importance to exercise

    So the next time when each one of you is off to shop for food or sit down to eat, don’t forget to incorporate these foods in some or the other way to achieve a healthy and balanced diet.

    Burn off more calories than you consume. Right now, I’m sticking to a 1000-1200 calorie a day diet and I also do 30 min. of cardio every morning making sure I burn 500 calories or more, and weight trainging to tone my body and drink A LOT of water, so I don’t have all that nasty loose skin from losing weight so fast. I’ve been doing this for a month and lost 20 lbs. People say that you shouldn’t lose more than 1-2 lbs. per week, I said skrew that, and decided to do my own thing, and ended up losing the 20 lbs. I needed to be at my goal weight. I still make sure I get all my essential nutrients by eating a lot of fruits, I drink V8 which has a daily serving of veggies, I get my GOOD carbs, protein, etc. I don’t ever starve, because I replaced my bad snack foods with a very low calorie choice like fruit. And please don’t fall for any products that claim to be DIET or Low-CARB, you’re best bet is low-calorie, stick to that and you’ll be good.
    As for the comments on how a “quick fix” will not work, it works as long as you keep it up. It’s all about a lifestyle change; become more active, and stick to a balanced diet…give into temptations every one in a while, just don’t over do it. It’s not that dang hard to lose weight, it’s stupid that people make such a big deal about it….especially the idiots that claim quick weight loss leads to a quicker and far worse weight gain; that can happen, but only if a person goes back to their old lifestyle habits that got them fat in the first place. Keep your metabolic rate up by never letting yourself starve…if you go too long without eating, your body thinks you’re in the midst of a famine and practically shuts down your metabolism and when you start eating again, your metabolism doesn’t help break down the foods you eat, and the fat is then stored, resulting in weight gain.

    i know and you know its true what they say..there is no quick and easy way but i will tell you what worked for me. i read about marissa peer in a magazine, who is a hypnotherapist..she is the one who helped jade goody along with many others loose weight. it is basically cutting out wheat and dairy products. it was a little hard for about 3 days, then it went and i’d lost nearly a stone in under 2 weeks. i wasn’t actually doing exercise just eating better. the book is called ‘i can be thin’ and you get a cd with it that you should listen to each day-(it was so good i brought the audio book too to listen to in the car!!)it kind of reprogrammes ur brain and really works. im actually due to give birth any day now and as soon as my son is born i wil be back off the wheat and dairy. this may sound crazy but it’s cheaper then pills and what have you got to lose?? check out her website and if u like it, i’d get the book from amazon.

    The term “overweight” spells out different things to different people. It’s a good idea to start at the beginning, and determine if you are actually overweight for your size or not, by working out your BMI (Body Mass Index). You can learn how to do it at the web resource in the box below, they have plenty of instruction, I lost 5 pounds by following their techniques.

    Starving is a completely unhelpful thing to do: it’s just going to screw up your metabolism so that it works less effectively in the long term and you could become more prone to gain weight when (as you inevitably will) you go back to eating normally.

    I don’t know anything about diet pills, but they don’t seem like a great idea either.

    There is no magical easy and quick way to lose weight, else everyone would be doing it and everyone would be thin. The only answer is: eat more healthily and do more excercise. Accepting that this is what you must do, and that it may not be as easy as you would like, is in fact the quickest way to lose weight.

    That said, don’t take things to extremes: don’t eat nothing and try to spend all day excersising, as this is just unsustainable. Why don’t you aim for at least 30 mins of dedicated excersise every other day: maybe a 15 minute jog (if you can’t jog for 15 mins straight then alternate with periods of walking to start with) and then some sit ups and stretches. Jogging costs nothing, you can do it anywhere, and it will be HARD at first if you’ve not run much before or aren’t very fit, but it will get easier as you go on. And 30 minutes of excersise is SO achievable and not something you should dread all day. Then once you’ve got used to that routine, you can build it up and spend more time excersising.

    In terms of diet: its really a case of finding out what works for you and your routine. Obviously you’re gonna have to eat less, but work out whether it will be easier for you to eat a big lunch and a small dinner, or vice versa, or maybe you’d rather have a number of small meals throughout the day. For example, I usually skip breakfast (this is bad advice I know, but I just don’t get hungry in the morning until about 11am), then have a good sized lunch (often a filled baguette or a hot meal like lasagne or something) then in the evening I make a HUGE but healthy salad. By giving myself a massive portion of salad, and including lots of different stuff (chicken/mixed leaves/corn/cucumber/peppers/red onion, maybe some houmouss on the side and a pitta bread if I’m really hungry) psychologically it doesn’t feel like I’m depriving myself. And I usually have a bit of chocolate or something in the evening as well. This is my weekday routine: at weekends I eat whatever I want. That makes it easier for me to stick to a better diet in the week.

    So basically: make some rules and stick to them: promise yourself you will do this. Stop looking for excuses, and redirect the time and energy you used to spend worrying about your weight and trying to think of ways to lose weight by magical shortcuts, into doing the sensible things you KNOW you have to do in order to actually find a long-term, sustainable solution to your problem.

    PS: Diet Coke / Diet Sprite etc contain no calories and help get me through the times when I really want to gorge on sweet stuff but know I shouldn’t.

    There’s two ways you could go and I think either way will work for you. First of all, my best suggestion is to learn to eat healthy.
    That means understand the food pyramid, the food groups, the recommended servings, etc. That is how you should eat for life! If you eat that way and have 3 small, healthy meals a day and 2 small, healthy snacks, you will lose weight. Each meal should be less than 400 calories and each snack should be about 100-150 calories. Eating highly nutritious foods is the key, so think in terms of lean protein, veggies, whole-grains, fruits, low-fat dairy, and heart-healthy oils.

    The second option is to do a short-term “drastic diet” that is designed to last for 2 weeks max. This would take off the most weight rapidly. There are several on the site under “Diet Plans” but my favorite is the 5-4-3-2-1 diet.
    You get to pick what you eat, but you’re going to want to pick highly nutritious foods to keep your metabolism working efficiently. Again, the “eat healthy” page can help you determine what highly nutritious foods are, if you need help with that. If you go on the short-term diet, then once it’s over, follow the guidelines on the “eat healthy” page.

    Make water your main source of hydration and save the sweet drinks (even diet) for special occasions. Eliminate as much salt and sugar from your diet as you can.

    The biggest component to fast weight loss is going to be your workout. You will want to make sure you do a good (30 minute minimum) cardio workout every day for weight loss (3 times a week is sufficient to maintain health). Activities that use the large leg muscles burn the most calories. These activities also tone the lower body quite effectively. Think in terms of power walking, jogging, biking, skating, swimming laps, jumping rope, dancing, racquetball, and jumping jacks. To make sure that you’re burning fat, you need to be sweating and huffing and puffing. In addition, do some good stretches and some strength training.

    You’ll find some really good information on the website, including about five pages of weight loss tips, printable weight loss journal pages, printable exercise log sheets, motivational ideas, healthy recipes, etc.
    Good luck!
