How do I lose weight fast? In order to answer this question millions of Americans try many diet programs, with high hopes of losing weight. Unfortunately, not all them, are successful in losing weight and keeping it off. Why don't they succeed?

These are some of the mistakes that you make for weight loss :

The first important thing is to know what not to do!

Be realistic!

The first mistake dieters make is having unrealistic expectations. You mustn't believe all the hype - there is no magic pill, and you are not going to lose 15lbs in one week just because the TV commercial says you can. Do not be taken in! There are hundreds of scam artists out there who are only after your money.

In fact, studies show that individuals who rapidly lose weight are more likely to gain it back. So actually, slower is better.

How does weight loss happen

You lose weight by using more energy, or calories, than you take in from food. This calorie deficit forces your body to use the fat that it has stored, and turn it into fuel that is used to maintain body functions. One pound of fat represents about 3,500 calories of stored energy, so obviously, to lose a pound you would have to cut 3,500 calories.

So where to start

The best and most important thing you can do is to track your food (and drink) intake by counting calories.

But you have to be honest! It's so easy to underestimate how much you're actually eating, even when you think you're tracking your food consistently. If you don't control your portion sizes, or if you tend to forget those little "extras" you eat during the day, you can easily add a few hundred uncounted calories to your daily total.

Are there any good diet programs that really work?

Yes, but you have to choose the one that will suit you! A sudden, drastic change to a severely restricted caloric intake is probably destined for failure.

If you want a diet that's going to make a real difference, you need to make sure you're well-informed. Pick a program or a method that you feel you'll be able to stick with, long-term, and understand that you need to make changes that you can live with for the rest of your life!
