Extreme circumstances call for extreme measures.
What Is Extreme Weight Loss?
Extreme weight loss is the loss of large amounts of body fat over a short period of time.
Extreme weight loss does not work for everyone. The people that experience the best results and benefit most from extreme weight loss are those that are currently morbidly obese and have extremely large amounts of body fat to lose.
How Do You Achieve Extreme Weight Loss Results?
The answer is simple. Change your lifestyle. A true life transformation is the only way to achieve your extreme weight loss goals and maintain them.
1. Mind over matter
We have all heard the expression “you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink”. You have to be mentally ready to embark on this weight loss journey. No one can make the decision for you. You need to decide to become healthier, reduce your risks of heart disease, heart attack, and stroke. Make u your mind – do you want to commit to leading a thinner, healthier lifestyle? Once you have set your mind to it, the sky is the limit.
To experience extreme weight loss, you have to change the way you eat.
The first step to losing weight is in knowing how many calories your body uses and needs on a daily basis. You can use an online calorie calculator to determine this amount. As you continue your journey of extreme weight loss, the amount of calories your body needs may change. Once you have determined the amount of calories your body needs, you need to decrease the amount of calories you consume in a day. In order for extreme weight loss to work and be effective, you need to consume less calories per day than you burn off.
Calories are not the only factor you need to think about when trying to lose extreme amounts of weight. Consume the correct foods to ensure your body receives the correct nutrients in order to survive, digest foods easily, promote extreme weight loss, lower blood pressure, regulate blood sugars, and reduce risks of diseases such as heart disease. This includes choosing good carbs over bad carbs (for example, fruits and vegetables over refined flours and sugars), choosing monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats over saturated fats (for example, olive oil over butter), and getting enough protein to help preserve and increase muscle mass as your fat dwindles.
In order to achieve extreme weight loss, you must drink water. And, not just a little water, you need to drink A LOT of water. Often, when we think we are hungry, we are actually thirsty. Instead of eating something every time you feel hungry, drink a glass of water. Chances are, you will feel full after finishing the glass. If not, then you are actually hungry and should eat something healthy. Water keeps your body hydrated and speeds up your metabolism. Not drinking enough water can make your body think it’s dehydrated and slow your metabolism. Drinking water flushes toxins from your system, making you healthier
In order to lose weight, you need to burn off more calories than you consume in a day. Incorporating regular, intense workouts into your weekly regimen will help you achieve your extreme weight loss goals. It is recommended to exercise thirty to sixty minutes per day. If you are in need of extreme weight loss, chances are you are not currently exercising. In the beginning, your goals will be to learn the proper exercise forms and to build and tone muscle. After you have mastered the correct forms, have established an exercise routine and have become comfortable with this routine, you can work on exercising at a faster pace. This will boost your speed, power, and endurance as well as help you lose more weight faster.
If you are in need of extreme weight loss, chances are you are not currently exercising. Start small. Although the recommended amount of exercise is thirty to sixty minutes a day, you can start with smaller increments and work your way up. Start with five to ten minutes a day. Once you are used to having an exercise plan, you can gradually work your way up to the goal of thirty to sixty minutes. If you have a busy schedule, break it up into three of more ten minute workouts.

In order to maintain the extreme weight loss feat you have accomplished, you have to change your lifestyle. Extreme weight loss is about changing the way you eat, the foods you eat, and how you cook those foods. It is about wanting to live a happier, healthier life.
Maybe you used to use food as a way to comfort yourself. Or, you thought food tasted better when it was fried. Maybe you thought you had to serve carb and sugar filled foods at a birthday party. You need to change the way you think and feel about food, as well as the way you eat it.
Know that it is okay to feel hungry. Know that maybe you are not really hungry, maybe you are thirsty. Know that you don’t have to stuff your face every time you have the slightest craving. Know your body, what it needs, and what it wants.
The secret to extreme weight loss and keeping the weight off is to not diet and exercise. The secret is to lead a healthy lifestyle and remain active.
