What Is A Safe Speed To Naturally Lose Weight?

Speed of weight loss is a ferociously debated topic in the fitness world, with many claiming that anybody who tries to burn fat faster than a certain specific amount of lbs lost per week is going to harm their health in some way. Because of this popular notion, some may become concerned if they lose weight faster than this preconceived maximum per week, and make changes accordingly to their diet plan. But is this notion fact or utter fiction?

The genesis of the proposed limitation on weight loss may have been a response to those who follow extreme, sometimes unhealthy and even dangerous fat burning methods, to try and encourage such individuals to instead pursue a slower approach not based on starvation or excessive food group limitations. The motivation for imposing such a limitation is positive, but misleading, and because the truth is far from what such a blanket statement implies, many, seeing that what is claimed does not synchronize with reality, will just ignore such restrictions and decide to pursue diet routines that may in fact prove to be harmful to health.

In reality, the speed of weight loss is based on individual metabolism, and can be vastly different for each individual. Some of my Fat Vanish natural weight loss program clients lose 10-20 lbs per month, and to those who propose a 1-2 lbs per week restriction on the amount of safe weight loss that can be achieved, such figures automatically infer that a diet plan must be risky to provide such quick results. Yet, when following a properly designed diet plan that also includes some moderate exercise, some can lose weight very fast, without experiencing any negative side effects or health issues whatsoever. In fact, health actually improves as a result of less body fat and a properly balanced diet plan.

What everyone must realize is that nobody can predict how fast any specific individual will lose weight, regardless of how many degrees he or she has or how long they have been personally training others, so do not listen to anyone who claims that results faster or slower than a certain number of lbs per week inherently indicates some problem with the diet plan. Instead, the important consideration is that a natural weight loss diet plan have a variety of foods, sufficient meal frequency to promote a healthy metabolism, and the correct macronutrient ratios to allow for ideal hormonal balance, which encourages consistent fat burning results. When such a healthy diet plan is implemented, the controlling factors in how much weight will be lost are individual metabolism, amount of exercise and quantity of food consumed.

Do not focus on how fast weight loss is achieved, but rather on whether you burn fat each week, as this is the barometer of whether a weight loss plan is effective. If the scale improves or you lose stomach size, then you are headed down the proper path. Although the finish line will be reached by some faster than others, if the diet and exercise routine is properly designed and healthy, then there is no cause for concern.
