Fastest Way to Lose Weight

The Fastest Way to Lose Weight

Even if you are a moderately active adult, at some point in life, you will probably need to lose weight. While you want those extra pounds gone right away, it takes some dedication to get the best result. The following tips will help jumpstart your way to a better body.

Eat Breakfast

You may be tempted to skip breakfast to speed up your weight loss, but eating first thing in the morning will fill you up and keep the cravings away. The meal should contain:

- At least 500 calories

- Lean protein, whole grains and fruit

- Healthy fats from nuts, yogurt and eggs

Drink Coffee or Tea

The caffeine in coffee and tea is an excellent antioxidant and up to 400 mg per day is considered safe and healthy. Caffeine also offers you the following benefits:

- Diuretic properties to shed water weight

- Faster metabolism

- Accessible and inexpensive

Avoid Sugary Drinks

Although it is important to drink enough and stay hydrated, you will not feel as satiated with liquid calories as you will with food calories, especially if the liquid is sweetened. To avoid this trap, monitor your drinks and avoid:

- Soda and juice

- Sweetened coffee and tea

- Alcoholic beverages

Drinking one of each can add 800 extra calories by the end of the day. In addition, alcohol slows your fat metabolism, making it more difficult to lose weight.

Get Some Exercise

Your metabolism slows down as they day ends, and taking a brisk walk before dinner can help you lose weight quickly by:

- Keeping your metabolism elevated for up to three hours

- Discouraging overeating and snacking

- Reducing stress and encouraging relaxation

When you are relaxed, your body will produce more melatonin, which leads to a sound and refreshing sleep.

Get a Good Night's Sleep

Modern life has encroached on human sleeping habits to the point where many people are chronically sleep deprived, which contributes to weight gain. To avoid this, you should do the following:

- Go to bed and get up at the same time each day

- Sleep at least seven hours per night

- Do not exercise within two hours of bedtime

- Do not use your bed for anything other than sleep or sex

Stay Accountable

Losing weight quickly and keeping it off requires self accountability. You can do this in the following ways:

- Keeping a journal of everything you eat each day

- Using an app that counts calories and reminds you to exercise

- Including family and friends in your weight-loss journey

Losing a few pounds fast does not have to be difficult. Following the tips above will start you on the path to your personal weight-loss goals.

Olive Garden Tiramisu Copycat Recipe

Olive Garden Tiramisu Copycat Recipe

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 cups mascarpone cheese (this is an Italian cream cheese)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 20 – 24 lady fingers
  • 1/4 cup cold espresso
  • 1/4 cup Kahlua coffee liqueur
  • 2 teaspoons cocoa powder


Fill a medium saucepan halfway with water and bring it to a boil over medium/high heat, then reduce heat so that the water is simmering. Whisk egg yolks, milk and sugar together in a medium metal bowl, then place the bowl on top of the saucepan (you can also use a double boiler for this step). Stir the mixture often for ten minutes. After the sugar dissolves the mixture should begin to thicken and turn light yellow. Remove it from the heat to cool. Use an electric mixer to combine mascarpone, cream cheese and vanilla in a large bowl. Mix until mostly creamy, but with a few small chunks remaining. Add egg yolk mixture to the cheese mixture and mix just until well-combined.

Combine espresso and Kahlua in a small bowl. Pour this mixture onto a dinner plate. One-by-one touch the bottom of each lady finger in the espresso. The lady finger will quickly soak up the espresso/Kahlua mixture, but you don’t want the lady finger soaked — just a dab will do ya. The top half of each lady finger should still be dry. Arrange the soaked lady fingers side-by-side on the bottom of an 8×8-inch serving dish or baking pan.Spoon about half of the cheese mixture over the lady fingers, then add another layer of soaked lady fingers on top of the cheese mixture. Spoon the remaining cheese mixture over the second layer of lady fingers and spread it evenly.

Put two teaspoons of cocoa powder in a tight-mesh strainer and gently tap the side of the strainer to add an even dusting of cocoa powder over the top of the dessert. Cover and chill for several hours. To serve, slice the dessert twice across and down creating 9 even portions (the first serving is always the hardest to get out).

Melt butter and combine with Ritz crackers, sprinkle buttered crackers over the broccoli. Add remaining soup mix, and bake for approximately 45 minutes or until the chicken is done.

  • 4 tbs butter
  • 2 tbs honey
  • 1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin, trimmed
  • 1/2 tsp Cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 3/4 cup water

How To Make Bath Bombs

To soak away a stressful day, all you have to do is toss a bath bomb into your tub. It will set off a fizzy reaction that releases super-relaxing essential oils. Plus, they make great gifts! Pamper yourself (or your loved one) and make your own DIY bath bombs:

Ingredients for bath bombs vary depending on preference, but we like this recipe list from Intimate Weddings, and makes 2.5 eight ounce bath bombs:

Note:  One of the best parts of making your own bath bombs is getting to choose the essential oils! You can go with floral scents like lavender or rosemary, or a citrus blend with lemon or grapefruit.  Some other common essential oils used for bath bombs are peppermint, vanilla and chamomile.

Combine dry ingredients. 
Dump all of your dry ingredients (citric acid, corn starch, Epsom salts and baking soda) into a big bowl and stir together with your whisk.
Combine wet ingredients. 
Place all of your wet ingredients (water, essential oil, almond oil and food coloring) into a cup and stir until well mixed.
Mix together. 
Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir them. (The mixture should begin to clump together.)
Pack mixture into molds. 
Grab your plastic mold and pack the mixture into the first half of the mold. 
Pack it as tightly as you can! 
Then, do the same with the second half.
Press together. 
Add some extra mixture on top of the second half and squeeze the molds together to create your sphere. Press firmly! 

Tip: If the mixture isn’t packing well, place the ingredients back in the bowl and add a tiny amount of water. Be careful, though – too much water will ruin your bath bomb!

Let dry. Wait a few minutes, and then carefully remove the bath bomb from the mold. Place them on wax paper on top of a fluffy towel. Let the bath bombs dry for at least one day before you use them! If your bath bombs are a gift, wrap them in cellophane or tissue paper. To store them, keep them in a plastic, airtight container. 

If you don't have time to DIY, you can purchase luscious bath bombs directly from Amazon.
