When you have been overweight for a while and trying to diet on and off, it feels like a continuous uphill battle with your body. Every time you try, it works for a little while but it hardly takes anything at all and suddenly you’re back to where you started.

With so many high fat and sugar foods around, even when you are being health conscious, it can be easy to slip into eating all the wrong foods. So how on earth can you lose weight fast and keep it off?

More than anything, your weight is a part of your lifestyle. It makes no sense to diet for 1 month only to go back to your old ways again. If you want to commit to a healthy weight, you have to be all in. After all bad health can cost you.

That being said, there are a few ways you can kick start your diet to get the best results a bit faster.

Get a Lap Band

Getting surgery might not sound like a safe option, but with a top notch doctor, you will be in good hands. The most popular weight loss surgery in Los Angeles is the lap band and is a popular choice with those people who have been overweight for a long time and are now putting themselves in real danger if they don’t act soon. If you have a BMI over 30 and you are struggling with your health as a result, this procedure could be an idea for you to consider.
The concept of the lap band is very simple. The band is fitted around the stomach, constricting it into an hourglass shape. This means that you won’t feel so hungry and therefore can’t eat as much in one go. It only takes one minor incision to place the lap band and your stomach will remain whole despite feeling much smaller.

Fasting Diet

If surgery isn’t your thing and you want to try one last diet, then the 5:2 diet, or a similar fasting diet could be for you. The premise is very simple: you eat normally for 5 days and then restrict your calorie intake to 500 calories on 2 days. But, however simple it may sound, it does require determination to power through the hunger. To speed things up even more, you could also do alternate day fasting, eating normally one day and restricting your diet to 500 calories the next.

The idea behind the fasting diet is that while you never actually starve yourself or put your health at risk, your stomach will gradually shrink as you learn to eat less. You might think that the days where you don’t fast would cause problems but actually, most people don’t overcompensate too much.

The fasting diet is a good way to lose weight, but it is also a lifestyle choice. Once you have reached your target, you might want to loosen up on the rules and go for 1000 calories on your fast days, but otherwise, you should really think of this as a forever decision. Just make sure you plan your social life accordingly!
