Fast Weight Loss Diet

Doctors say that the best way to lose weight is to lose it over a period of time so that the effect is lasting and more sustainable for your health. It is advised to gradually remove the calories from your diet. For an average adult, if he/she consumes 3000 calories a day, cutting on 1000 calories a day will lead to losing weight at the rate of 1 pound in 3 days.

Usually fast weight loss occurs only with a meal replacement programme. Some of the options you can consider to lose weight fast are as follows:
