Rapid Weight Loss: What Is It?
It doesn't matter exactly what you do, so long as you're up and active. Aim for at least 15 minutes, says the AHA. If you get really engrossed, you just might outlast the last survivor. That's because while a small portion served on a large plate can leave you craving more, a smaller plate gives the visual signal that you already have more.
We know we've had enough because we see the bottom of our bowl or plate. And don't forget smaller bowls, cups, and spoons. For example, try savoring a bowl of ice cream with a baby spoon. Not only does the pleasure last longer, but your body has time to register the food you've eaten. When your weight loss efforts lead to boredom or too much self-focus, get occupied with something else. So take a break from the siren-call of the tube, and get occupied with things that have nothing to do with food.
For some, that might mean becoming involved with local politics, discovering yoga, or enjoying painting. Or maybe you want to help a child with a science project, repaint the bedroom, or take a class. Have a life outside of weight loss. Then at least eat your meals at the table.
While cultivating that virtue isn't exactly painless, it may help to know that keeping weight off generally gets easier over time. That's the result of a study published in Obesity Research, where researchers found that for people who had lost at least 30 pounds -- and kept it off for at least two years -- maintaining that weight loss required less effort as time went on.
So if you crave the results reported by successful "losers" like these -- improved self-confidence, a boost in mood, and better health -- cultivate patience. You may find your way to sweet and nearly painless weight loss success. If 10 tips for painless weight loss or maintenance aren't enough, how about trying some of these ideas from WebMD's weight loss community members?

Low-calorie diets are also referred to as balanced percentage diets. Due to their minimal detrimental effects, these types of diets are most commonly recommended by nutritionists. In addition to restricting calorie intake, a balanced diet also regulates macronutrient consumption. Some studies suggest that increased consumption of protein can help ease hunger pangs associated with reduced caloric intake by increasing the feeling of satiety.
After reaching the desired body weight, the calories consumed per day may be increased gradually, without exceeding 2, net i. Combined with increased physical activity, low-calorie diets are thought to be most effective long-term, unlike crash diets , which can achieve short-term results, at best. Physical activity could greatly enhance the efficiency of a diet.
The healthiest weight loss regimen, therefore, is one that consists of a balanced diet and moderate physical activity. Weight gain has been associated with excessive consumption of fats , added sugars , refined carbohydrates in general, and alcohol consumption. A study found that dieters who got a full night's sleep lost more than twice as much fat as sleep-deprived dieters.
Though hypothesized that supplementation of vitamin D may help, studies do not support this. According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans those who achieve and manage a healthy weight do so most successfully by being careful to consume just enough calories to meet their needs, and being physically active. Food and Drug Administration FDA , healthy individuals seeking to maintain their weight should consume 2, calories 8. The least intrusive weight loss methods, and those most often recommended, are adjustments to eating patterns and increased physical activity, generally in the form of exercise.
The World Health Organization recommended that people combine a reduction of processed foods high in saturated fats, sugar and salt  and caloric content of the diet with an increase in physical activity. An increase in fiber intake is also recommended for regulating bowel movements. Other methods of weight loss include use of drugs and supplements that decrease appetite , block fat absorption, or reduce stomach volume.
Bariatric surgery may be indicated in cases of severe obesity. Two common bariatric surgical procedures are gastric bypass and gastric banding. Dietary supplements , though widely used, are not considered a healthy option for weight loss. Virtual gastric band uses hypnosis to make the brain think the stomach is smaller than it really is and hence lower the amount of food ingested.

Research has been conducted into the use of hypnosis as a weight management alternative. In order for weight loss to be permanent, changes in diet and lifestyle must be permanent as well.
Short-term dieting has not been shown to produce either long term weight loss or better health, and may even be counterproductive. There is a substantial market for products which promise to make weight loss easier, quicker, cheaper, more reliable, or less painful. These include books, DVDs, CDs, cremes, lotions, pills, rings and earrings, body wraps, body belts and other materials, fitness centers , clinics, personal coaches , weight loss groups , and food products and supplements.
About 70 percent of Americans' dieting attempts are of a self-help nature. Unintentional weight loss may result from loss of body fats, loss of body fluids, muscle atrophy , or even a combination of these. Unintentional weight loss can occur because of an inadequately nutritious diet relative to a person's energy needs generally called malnutrition.
Disease processes, changes in metabolism, hormonal changes, medications or other treatments, disease- or treatment-related dietary changes, or reduced appetite associated with a disease or treatment can also cause unintentional weight loss. Continuing weight loss may deteriorate into wasting, a vaguely defined condition called cachexia. This leads to a condition called anorexia cachexia syndrome ACS and additional nutrition or supplementation is unlikely to help.
Serious weight loss may reduce quality of life, impair treatment effectiveness or recovery, worsen disease processes and be a risk factor for high mortality rates. In addition, malnutrition can lead to vitamin and other deficiencies and to inactivity, which in turn may pre-dispose to other problems, such as pressure sores. Unintentional weight loss can be the characteristic leading to diagnosis of diseases such as cancer  and type 1 diabetes.
