Although weight loss can be challenging, there are certainly simpler ways to lose weight, if done properly.

3 Fast, Safe & Effective Weight Loss Strategies You're Not Doing
Before we jump head first into these 3 weight loss strategies, you must understand something:
They're not ground breaking nor are they exciting.
However, there's no secret to weight loss.
There will always be an element of sacrifice, pain and hard work. These qualities aren't sexy but you know what is:
A body that YOU have worked hard for using these 3 fast, safe and effective weight loss strategies.
#1 - Weight Training
Weight training (also known as resistance training) is the KING of weight loss.
Simply put, weight training burns the most calories over a long period of time.
When you do aerobic exercise such as walking, you will burn calories for the duration of that activity however when you do a bout of intense resistance training, you burn calories during AND up to 15-38 hours afterwards, depending on the intensity. 
This is also known as EPOC (exercise post oxygen consumption) or the 'afterburn'.
Okay, these numbers are seriously estimates and your exact numbers will be completely different but you can see the principle.
Here are some more reasons why weight training is the king of weight loss:
The best part? Improving your strength, power and body composition (as a result) all help to boost your metabolism.
The bottom line:
Lift those weights and you'll get some serious results.
Here's an example (from our client) that shows what weight training can do:
So yeah, if you're not weight training, you're missing out on a huge opportunity to accelerate your fat loss. If you're unsure how, employ an expert to show you.
#2 - Keep A Food Diary
Writing your food down in a diary has been proven to substantially help you lose weight .
It's a strategy that's so simple and easy to use. In fact, I believe it's one of the most under-utilised strategies when it comes to weight loss.
You might hate tracking your calories because it feels a little tedious and it's hard to see immediate results. You're not alone, and this is why most people don't do it.
Look, that's totally fine because tracking your daily intake is only a tool.
It's kinda like using a GPS to help you drive from A to B. You could probably get there without it, but it might take you a little longer because you'll take a few wrong turns, make mistakes and get frustrated at lack of progress.
Whichever way you look at it, unless you're eating in a deficit, you will not lose weight.
So, you have a couple of options here (neither are wrong).
You can keep track of your food on a piece of paper or, you can rapidly increase your success rate by knowing your daily intake and tracking your calories in an app. Here are your options:
Option #1 (Beginner) - Download my food diary for free here and simply start recording what you eat on a day to day basis. Writing it down keeps you honest and identifies areas for improvements. This food diary is guaranteed to help you do that.
Option #2 (Advanced) - Download an app like MyFitnessPal where you can start tracking your food intake in a little more detail. This is my preferred choice, as it gives me more control. Ultimately though, the choice is yours.
Whichever option you pick, both are guaranteed to help you succeed in your weight loss.
#3 - Cardio
Cut a long story short, cardio is essentially any form of activity that increases your heart rate, get's you moving and provides some physical exertion of the body.
Cardio generally involves exercising at a consistent level of intensity over a period of time. This includes (but not limited to):
Cardio is super important for heart health and should be included in anyone's weight loss program.
As a result of doing cardio, you can expect: (please note, these points have been taken from Precision Nutrition's article, which can be found here)
As you can see, cardio is pretty important for your health and is a great tool for weight loss. It's safe, effective, easy to perform and can accelerate your fat loss by creating a larger calorie deficit.
