Losing weigh the right way

The short answer is, no. Crash diets will cause you to lose large amounts of weight in the short term. Much of the weight you lose will be water and muscle. But here's how the typical cycle goes: crash diet while exercising, lose lots of weight. Then, in a couple of months, you get tired of starving yourself and you start eating again, and often stop exercising because you have no energy. Meanwhile, because you have starved yourself, your metabolism is drastically reduced and your body is primed to store all the fat you eat. Resumed eating, combined with a lowered metabolism and no exercise leads to weight gain. Often you gain more than you lost, meaning you could lose 20 pounds in a month and regain 40 by next swimsuit season. Not where you want to be next spring! Here is a better, longer lasting solution. Reduce your calorie intake by 500 calories a day, but don't drop below 1500 total calories. Read your food labels and be honest and accurate about everything you put in your mouth that has calories. Start with cutting liquid calories such as pop and beer, and replace it with water. Add exercise that will burn 500 calories, and you will create a 1000 daily calorie deficit. This will add up to about 2 pounds of fat loss per week. Any more than that, and your probably dropping water and muscle. Make sure strength training is part of your regimen; that will do wonders for your metabolism. Consider investing some money in a reputable personal trainer. By keeping up this routine, you will be in even better shape when next spring rolls around. Good luck!
