Finally ready to get yourself in shape but don’t know how to do it? Here are 3 ways to help you lose weight fast.
Have the right amount & type of protein in your diet
Protein is required by the body for the growth, maintenance and repair of all cells. It is a major component of all muscles, tissues and organs and is vital for practically every process that occurs within the body such as metabolism, digestion and the transportation of nutrients and oxygen in the blood.
It is also necessary for the production of antibodies, which fight against infection and illness, and is the main nutrient that keeps our hair shiny and healthy, our nails strong, our skin fresh and glowing and our bones strong and healthy.
Your muscle mass works like a furnace, burning calories and stored fat for energy. The more lean muscle you have, the higher your metabolism, faster you burn calories and lose belly fat. Eating enough protein daily is essential to maintaining your muscle mass for good health, energy and effective weight loss.
However, protein in the body is lost daily and therefore must be replenished daily through the diet. Too little protein can cause skin problems and generally give us an unhealthy and tired appearance.
Many foods containing protein are also good sources of iron amongst other minerals and vitamins. A lack of iron can result in tiredness and fatigue, leaving the body weak and with little energy. Ensure you have the right amount and right type of protein in your diet daily.
Drink Enough Water
Our body is made up of 75% water. Drinking plenty of water is an important part of healthy weight management and maintaining nutritious diet.
Water has no fats, no calories, no carbs and no sugar. It is used by the body to help flush out toxins and waste, maintain healthy circulation, resulting in better energy and digestion, healthy heart and skin.

Stay Active & Regular Exercise
Exercise helps you build muscle which in turn helps you burn more calories & lose fats. As your muscle mass increases, you burn more calories, even when you are not exercising.
You do not need to do vigorous exercise to burn calories and lose weight. Vigorous exercise burns calories in a shorter time. But longer time spent on moderate-intensity exercise can burn the same amount of calories. Health Promotion Board recommends exercising 150 mins per week and it is better to spread out the exercise through the week instead of being a weekend exercise warrior.
