If you want to shed a few pounds quickly, here are 10 tips for fast weight loss. You don't have to be constantly hungry and starve yourself if you want to lose weight. You just have to be more aware of what you eat, avoid to much sugar and fat, and eat plenty of fruit and vegetables.

10 Fast Weight Loss Tips.

1. Avoid packaged or processed foods that come in a box, can, bag or carton and prepare your own meals from fresh ingredients. The best fast weight loss diets will avoid processed foods. They have little nutritional value and contain lots of salt and sugar which make us want to eat more.

2. Make a note of everything that you eat or drink. You don't have to count every calorie because writing down everything you eat will help you to see which high calorie foods are stopping your fast weight loss plan.

3.Include at least two portions of vegetables at every meal (excluding potatoes), or add a large salad with low fat dressing. Try to eat more green, leafy vegetables. Fresh vegetables will help you to feel full and satisfy your body's need for vitamins and minerals, and this will help lower your cravings.

4. Cut back on the amount of fat you eat by half. This is easy to do this if you stop eating packaged foods. Only use half as much oil as you usually would for cooking and and swap to low fat milk. Take of all the visible fat from meat before cooking and don't eat the skin.

5. Instead of eating unhealthy desserts, opt for fresh fruit like grapes, cherries, berries, apples, mangoes and bananas. Chopping them up and mixing them into a low fat sugar-free yoghurt is tasty way to enjoy these fruits.

6. If you want really fast weight loss avoid sugary-sweet treats or have no more than three in a week. You may find this difficult at first if you have a bit of a sweet tooth. However, you'll soon start to enjoy the sweetness in fruits and vegetables more, and fast weight loss will be your incentive.

7. For a great snack, try grated carrot. Grated carrot takes longer to eat than a whole carrot and because of this, it's way more satisfying. You can mix in a chopped apple or tomato for extra flavour.

8. Chew your food slowly and put down your fork between bites. Chewing will make you feel more satisfied with your meal. Opt for brown rice instead of white, whole fruit instead of juice, pieces of whole foods in your soup. The added fibre will fill you up and help the body to remove waste.

9. Plan your food shopping and make a list of what you will need, then keep to it. Never go shopping for food when you are hungry or another option is to order your shopping online and have it delivered. These fast weight loss plans will make losing weight easier.

10. Don't eat while doing something else at the same time like watching TV, driving, reading, checking email etc. When you eat, sit at the table, even if it's just for a snack. Keep mealtime conversations light and friendly and avoid heavy or controversial subjects. Arguments are not good for your digestion and won't help your fast weight loss.
