Default How to Lose Weight Fast: 3 Simple Steps, Based on Science

If your doctor recommends it, there are ways to lose weight safely. A steady weight loss of 1 to 2 pounds per week is recommended for the most effective long-term weight management.

That said, many eating plans leave you feeling hungry or unsatisfied. These are major reasons why you might find it hard to stick to a healthier eating plan.

However, not all diets have this effect. Low carb diets and whole food, lower calorie diets are effective for weight loss and may be easier to stick to than other diets.

[size=13px]Here are some ways to lose weight that employ healthy eating, potentially lower carbs, and that aim to:[/size]


reduce your appetite

cause fast weight loss

improve your metabolic health at the same time

One way to lose weight quickly is to cut back on sugars and starches, or carbohydrates. This could be with a low carb eating plan or by reducing refined carbs and replacing them with whole grains.

When you do that, your hunger levels go down, and you generally end up eating fewer calories ( 1).

With a low carb eating plan, you’ll utilize burning stored fat for energy instead of carbs.

If you choose to eat more complex carbs like whole grains along with a calorie deficit, you’ll benefit from higher fiber and digest them more slowly. This makes them more filling to keep you satisfied.

A 2020 study confirmed that a very low carbohydrate diet was beneficial for losing weight in older populations ( 2).

Research also suggests that a low carb diet can reduce appetite, which may lead to eating fewer calories without thinking about it or feeling hungry ( 3).

Note that the long-term effects of a low carb diet are still being researched. It can also be difficult to adhere to a low carb diet, which may lead to yo-yo dieting and less success in maintaining a healthy weight.

There are potential downsides to a low carb diet that may lead you to a different method. Reduced calorie diets can also lead to weight loss and be easier to maintain for longer periods of time.

If you opt for a diet focusing instead on whole grains over refined carbs, a 2019 study correlated high whole grain with lower body mass index (BMI) ().

To determine the best way for you to lose weight, consult your doctor for recommendations.

Summary

Reducing sugars and starches, or carbs, from your diet can help curb your appetite, lower your insulin levels, and make you lose weight.

But the long-term effects of a low carb diet are not yet known. A reduced calorie diet could be more sustainable.

Each one of your meals should include:

a protein source

fat source

vegetables

a small portion of complex carbohydrates, such as whole grains

To see how you can assemble your meals, check out:

Protein

Eating a recommended amount of protein is essential to help preserve your health and muscle mass while losing weight ().

Evidence suggests that eating adequate protein may improve cardiometabolic risk factors, appetite, and body weight, (, , ).

Here’s how to determine how much you need to eat without eating too much. Many factors determine your specific needs, but generally, an average person needs ():

56–91 grams per day for the average male

46–75 grams per day for the average female

Diets with adequate protein can also help:

reduce cravings and obsessive thoughts about food by 60%

reduce the desire to snack late at night by half

make you feel full

In one study, people on a higher protein diet ate 441 fewer calories per day (, ).

Healthy protein sources include:

meat: beef, chicken, pork, and lamb

fish and seafood: salmon, trout, and shrimp

eggs: whole eggs with the yolk

plant-based proteins: beans, legumes, quinoa, tempeh, and tofu

Low carb and leafy green vegetables

Don’t be afraid to load your plate with leafy green vegetables. They’re packed with nutrients, and you can eat very large amounts without greatly increasing calories and carbs.

Vegetables to include for low carb or low calorie eating plans:

Healthy fats

Don’t be afraid of eating fats.

Your body still requires healthy fats no matter what eating plan you choose. Olive oil and avocado oil are great choices for including in your eating plan.

Other fats such as butter and coconut oil should be used only in moderation due to their higher saturated fat content ().
