How much time you need to lose weight?

All the human beings are quite different from each other and therefore the behavior of their bodies may also be different to various things. Many a times, overweight people ask questions like how much time is really required for losing extra weight from their bodies. A very simple answer to this question is that the time which may be taken by your body to lose extra weight depend on a large number of factors. It means that it is actually you who decide the time which is required for losing body weight.

For instance, if you are just 5 or 6 kilograms over weight than you will not take much time in losing this weight in case you take up several exercises or avoid eating unhealthy food items. In other case, if you are 20 or 30 kilograms overweight then you definitely need to be patient. In many cases, people take up an ineffective diet plan and then start expecting that they will really lose extra weight from their body in just 7 days, as they saw in some magazine or a website. You need to understand that setting practical goals is also very important once you decide to reduce your body weight.

You should know exactly how much weight you want to reduce and the steps which you are going to take for making it possible. No website or magazine can tell you the time which your body will take for losing extra weight. The time taken by you for reducing weight also depends on the discipline you practice while following a particular diet plan. Suppose, you want to reduce 5 kilograms of your weight in 20 days. For this, you have taken up a diet plan which is really very effective and trustworthy. Now if you will not follow the diet plan with discipline then you will not be able to achieve the desired results in 20 days or 30 days for that matter.

So, now you know that for losing weight you need to have patience and discipline. Do not get carried away by flashy advertisements of different kinds of diets which promise to reduce your weight in 5 or 7 days. Always use your mind and keep your eyes open. This will help you to take the best decision for yourself. So, the next time someone asks from you about the time he/she needs for losing extra weight, you will be able to give the right answer.

This blog is my weight loss journey and hope this journey will help in losing some extra pounds.


It is a pity that human beings in general just love quick fixes and this is what advertisers take advantage of.

We need to understand the fact it takes months to years to pile on the pounds. In the same vein, it will take time to shed the weight off. Don't expect quick results in days. Even if that happens, most people will experience a flattening of the weight loss curve after a week or two because your metabolism is re-adjusting itself.

However if you continue with the journey, it gets better with time. So perseverance is the key along with consistency.

Once you get the bigger picture, you won't need to jump from one diet to the next wasting your hard-earned money in the process. Instead you spend money on improving what you are already doing.
