Here is a story about myself when I was younger. I entered into a bodybuilding competition and had NO IDEA what I was doing. Proper eating, drinking, and exercising was not part of my routine. Was I fat? Not by any means, but I had NO BUSINESS stepping on stage with the other competitors (until I received some much-needed help).

So why I am telling you this?

It’s not because I expect you to become a bodybuilder or the next fitness model. It’s because as skinny as I already was, I managed to lose 10 pounds in 1 week!   (with the proper help)

 

 

 

I can only imagine how much I would have lost if I had been heavier. Now was I exercising a lot? ABSOLUTELY! To be completely honest though, I lost all of that weight from my DIET!

When starting out, If you want to lose 20 Ibs FAST, your main focus should be on your DIET!

Now I am not saying that exercise doesn’t work, but it should not be your main focus. Too often people assume that if they work out, they can get away with eating poorly.

I myself have been guilty of this.

Let’s be honest here. It doesn’t make sense to burn 300 hundred calories and then go eat a 500 calorie burger.

Too many people justify eating poorly because they worked out. DOESNT WORK!

There’s a better way and that’s eating the CORRECT KINDS OF FOODS.

If you plan on going into this halfway and justify eating half of a chocolate cake as OK, because you had a salad earlier, YOU WILL FAIL!

If you focus all of your energy on getting your diet 100% on point, you will ALWAYS HAVE SUCCESS!

For beginners without guidance, start by getting your eating on track. Once you’ve mastered eating properly, then you can start focusing on incorporating a workout routine.

Here are the steps you should follow so you know how to lose 20 pounds fast!

Step1. Figure Out The Root Of Your Faults

What I mean by this is, are you eating poorly because you haven’t gone grocery shopping yet, or is it because you’re feeling down?

I would strongly encourage you to figure out which one it is, and if you are feeling down, talk to someone. If you just didn’t have time that day to start filling your fridge, start planning ahead.

Which leads me to the next step.

Step 2.Having A Plan!

If you know that when lunchtime rolls around, the boss is ordering a large pizza for everyone, figure out something to pack for work so you don’t end up devouring half a pizza with your co-workers.  AVOID THE TEMPTATION!

Have a basic meal plan written out in a journal that you can carry with you everywhere. This way you know what to eat and when to eat.

Step 3. Start Eating Correctly

You should be incorporating more fruits (sparingly) and vegetables into your diet. Eat low carb veggies, high protein meals, and drink water with every meal.

Also when you drink water, drink A LOT MORE OF IT! More often than not, people confuse hunger with thirst. Consume no less than 80 oz of water a day. This will definitely amp up your weight loss results. If you need more information about the correct foods to eat, check out my article Weight Loss In Seven Easy Steps.

 Step 4. Reduce Carbohydrates (Detox)

Reduce your carbohydrate intake to 25-75 carbohydrates a day. You do not want to continue this for a long period of time (1-2 weeks max), but long enough for your body to detox and utilize the carbohydrates properly.  If you are eating the “correct” foods and still do not feel any real energy from them, you are probably insulin-resistant.

What I mean by this is when you consume carbohydrates, your body utilizes them very poorly and it takes more and more of those carbs to get any actual energy from them.

You should only feel bad, when eating something unhealthy.

You should only feel good, when you eat something healthy.

If you feel no significant change in your body, then you absolutely need to do a detox.

Once you have finished your detox, begin to slowly reintroduce carbohydrates (the healthy kind) back into your diet.

Trying to lose weight fast while only focusing on diet will eventually lead to a plateau. It is important to always incorporate the proper balance of diet, strength training, and cardio to prevent this from happening.
