      How to lose weight fast and easy ? Lose weight in a short period of time has always been considered an almost impossible task. For years, doctors and dieticians reached lose weight effectively ways and they have said with us that sometimes it takes more years on the job even difficult to see any progress with weight loss, or have a perfect body by losing weight. But it simply is not exactly true at all. The human body has many adaptable and can change in a short time a lot of time. Think about it. If people can lose weight quickly with a large volume of fat from eating unhealthy weeks, should not they be able to lose weight more rapidly from week to eat healthy? Well, they certainly can lose weight fast but make sure good healthy....lt;br/gt;

          i say its rather quite easy if you stick to plan and never compromise...i was 102 kg 6 months back and lost 24 kg to now 78...the simple step is to do cardio for 2 hours everyday(no skipping the cardio even for 1 day) and stick to my diet plan (my daily calorie intake awas reduced to 1500 cal with no sugar and less carb diet).Nothing else...no snacks no sweets..now i feel confident and hitting gym everyday to stay fit and muscular... NOTE: right from kid i was fat...never was leaner...but i am able to reduce 24 kg in 6 months with simple mantra...everything is possible if you are pionate..
