But I did my research and this is what I came up with...if planned properly, you can lose weight fast, using shorter time periods limiting weight loss to a 5% reduction in total weight. At this level, you can lose weight fast and improve your health.

At first, you will lose mostly muscle and water. But as you progress through each period, more and more fat will burn instead muscle.

The Healthiest Quick Weight Loss Plan:

Healthy weight loss comes from fat loss over a long period of time. Slow and consistent, a healthy plan delivers small successes everyday, building momentum alongrepparttar 139810 way and peaking atrepparttar 139811 right time when you reach your goal. This is key.

Most dieters dorepparttar 139812 opposite...they experience fast weight loss early causing their momentum to peak mid-way throughrepparttar 139813 diet. Byrepparttar 139814 end ofrepparttar 139815 dieting time period, they are completely deflated and not ready forrepparttar 139816 next stage of weight loss -- weight gain prevention.

My healthiest quick weight loss plan, minimizesrepparttar 139817 effects of fast weight loss by evenly spreadingrepparttar 139818 weight loss over a six week period. Using my plan, most dieters lose weight between weeks 2-5. Other fast weight loss plans, report most weight loss occurring between weeks 1-3.

The Steps: 1. Week One, Part One -- drink a protein shake supplement everyday. Do not change anything else. Drink a protein shake that's a 50:50 mix of whey to casein proteins. The best time to drinkrepparttar 139819 shake depends on your physical activities.

Green Tea Also Has Anticancer Properties

---------------------------------------- Green tea, which has been reported to have anticancer properties and to raise levels of antioxidants inrepparttar 139690 blood that may ward off heart disease, now appears to haverepparttar 139691 potential to promote weight loss. A new study inrepparttar 139692 March issue ofrepparttar 139693 International Journal of Obesity concludes that green tea extract increases repparttar 139694 burning of calories and fat needed to lose weight. Green Tea In Liquid Or Capsule May Aid In Weight Loss

--------------------------------------------------- Previous animal studies showed that green tea extract increased thermogenesis, which isrepparttar 139695 generation of body heat that occurs as a result of normal digestion, absorption, and metabolization of food. In previous human studies,repparttar 139696 authors showed that consumption of green tea increased thermogenesis as well as energy expenditure and fat loss in healthy men, suggesting that green tea in liquid or capsule form may be an effective way to aid weight loss.

Inrepparttar 139697 new study, conducted by Abdul Dulloo, fromrepparttar 139698 Institute of Physiology atrepparttar 139699 University of Fribourg in Switzerland, researchers exposed a particular type of fatty tissue from rats to caffeine and to green tea extract containing small concentrations of caffeine.

Green Tea Containing Caffeine Can Raise Metabolism

----------------------------------------- Green tea containing caffeine significantly increased thermogenesis by 28% to 77%, depending on dose, whereas caffeine alone resulted in no significant increase. Whenrepparttar 139700 stimulant ephedrine was added to green tea with caffeine, repparttar 139701 increase was even more significant compared with caffeine alone and ephedrine alone. Caffeine and ephedrine are used together in some herbal weight loss preparations, but there are many safety concerns regarding ephedrine because it raises heart rate and blood pressure.
