Slow or Fast Weight Loss?

Slow or Fast Weight Loss?

Even though adopting a slow weight loss regime can take months or even years, this slower pace will help you maintain your weight loss goals.

You have a better success rate of losing fat during the slow weight loss process. Within a week, your body can only burn so much fat, after this, it has to resort to burning lean muscle tissue.

Slower changes to exercise and diet will make the transition to healthy eating and exercise easier and successful for lifetime habits.


Slow weight loss involves a much longer time period to achieve goals. When we want to lose weight, generally we want to see results NOW. However, for long lasting results slow does provide better long term health benefits.

It's hard to keep motivated when the weight is slowly being removed. That's why it's important to compliment yourself and reward yourself when you achieve weight loss goals. Keeping a journal can be very inspirational and help to keep your motivation levels high when you feel like things are not going as fast as you would like.


People get to see results quickly with a fast weight loss regime. When we see these type of quick results it does give a great motivational boost. If you need to fit into that outfit for that special occasion in the next week or two, fast weight loss may provide the solution.


There are many disadvantages to fast weight loss. Regaining the weight you lost in the short term, can often be gained back quicker than the original loss.

There may be some health risks associated with fast weight loss diets including dehydration, nutrient deficiencies and even a heart attack. Before deciding to try this method, it is advisable to consult with your Doctor.


Whatever weight loss method you decide to choose, research your options and stick with the plan. All the best in your weight loss journey!!
