Run Your Own Diet Experiment Like a Scientist: How to Lose Weight Fast?
The first thing you need to do is decide what your goal is. If you want to lose weight fast then the best way would be to follow Jenny Craig program. However, if you are not interested in losing weight quickly then there are other options available such as running or cycling. You will have to choose which one suits your lifestyle better.
Jenny Craig Program
If you want to lose weight quickly then the best option would be to follow Jenny Craig program. This type of dieting involves eating very few calories and exercising a lot. Most people get their calories from foods like pizza, cookies, cakes and ice cream. They exercise by walking around the house or doing some sort of physical activity (like swimming).
There are many benefits of following Jenny Craig diet. First of all it helps you maintain a healthy body weight. Secondly, it helps you burn fat faster than any other type of dieting method. Thirdly, it allows you to eat junk food without feeling guilty because they are low calorie foods.
Fourthly, it makes you feel full quicker so that means less hunger pangs and therefore less cravings during the day.
The Jenny craig program consists of three stages. The first stage is called the “early weight loss phase”. In this phase your dietitian prepares and gives you 5 meals she says are good for you to eat. These meals include breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack, dinner and evening snack.
You get to eat one meal a day (afternoon or evening) from the menu of 5 meals provided by your dietician. The remaining 3 meals and the two snacks are provided to you by the Jenny craig company itself.
The second stage is called the “pre-maintenance phase”. During this stage you will have to meet with your dietician once a week for a checkup. In addition, you will have to buy your own Jenny craig food from their website. The meals that were provided for you in stage 1 are now something you have to pay for yourself.
The meals are very cheap though (only about $30 a week) so this shouldn’t be a problem for you.
The third and last stage is called the “maintenance phase”. You don’t have to meet with your dietician anymore, however you still have to buy your own Jenny craig meals.
There are many different types of running that you can do. These include long distance running, sprinting, cross country running and interval training.
Sprinting: sprinting is a form of running where you run at top speed for short distances (usually about 200-300 metres). Sprint training is great for people who are looking for a short term boost in their fitness level. If you sprint regularly your endurance will also increase, meaning that you will eventually be able to sprint further and further every time you train. However, it is not a good idea to sprint more than 3 times a week as your muscles need time to rest.
Long distance running: popular types of long distance running include 5k runs, 10ks, half marathons and marathons (which is about 42km). These events are usually run over road races. Running is a great way to lose weight and it’s cheap too (all you need is a decent pair of trainers). If you run with a friend, it makes the time go by quicker and it’s more fun.
Cross country running: this type of running is more common in high schools and colleges. You run long distances (4-12 miles) through fields and trails as fast as you can. This is a great exercise for people who don’t have much experience in running long distances as the terrain is uneven and you constantly have to change pace. If you want to become good at cross country, your stamina has to be very good.
Interval training: this type of running alternates periods of fast and slow running. For example, you could run as fast as you can for 1 minute and then walk for 2 minutes. This can be repeated 8 times (8 sets). Interval training is great for people who want to improve their stamina as well as their speed.
There are two ways to lose weight through running. You can either lose weight while you’re running or you can lose weight after you’ve run.
If you’re running to lose weight, you must make sure that you consume fewer calories than you are burning. This means that if you run 3 miles in 30 minutes, you are burning around 180 calories (90 calories per 15 minutes x 3 miles).
