What is a Quick Way To Lose Weight?

W8MD’s Quick Weight Loss – 4 Tips

As the United States and rest of the world deal with an epidemic of obesity, and diabetes, dubbed diabesity, more and more people are searching online for ways to lose weight quickly. One of the popular keywords on Google related to weight loss is quick weight loss.

Confusing choices

With over 20,000 diet books with more coming every day, it is not only confusing but also very frustrating. It is important to stick to evidence based measure as opposed to the next miracle diet called, let’s say “grass soup diet”.

Lifestyle change

Unfortunately, weight or obesity, is a chronic health condition that needs long term lifestyle changes, and therefore, quick fixes, are like putting a band aid. Having said that, here are some trips and steps you can take to lose weight.

W8MD’s 4 quick weight loss tips.

Quick weight loss tip 1

Assess your risk – find out your body mass index by simple online tools such as the W8MD’s Body Mass Index Calculator

BMI categories

  • Underweight: BMI is less than 18.5.
  • Normal weight: BMI is 18.5 to 24.9.
  • Overweight: BMI is 25 to 29.9.
  • Obese: BMI is 30 or more.

If you determine you are overweight or obese, move to the next step.

Quick weight loss tip 2

Get a tape a measure your waist circumference so we can determine if you have central or upper body weight distribution.

Classification of Overweight and Obesity by BMI, Waist Circumference, and Associated Disease Risks

Disease Risk* Relative to Normal Weight and Waist Circumference
Men 102 cm (40 in) or less
Women 88 cm (35 in) or less
Men > 102 cm (40 in)
Women > 88 cm (35 in)
Underweight < 18.5
Normal 18.5–24.9
Overweight 25.0–29.9 Increased High
Obesity 30.0–34.9 I High Very High
35.0–39.9 II Very High Very High
Extreme Obesity 40.0 + III Extremely High Extremely High


* Disease risk for type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and CVD.
+ Increased waist circumference also can be a marker for increased risk, even in persons of normal weight.

Quick weight loss tip 3

Find out what might be causing you to gain weight. In many people, as many as 71% of US adults, suffer from insulin resistance. Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas that helps glucose in your blood enter cells in your muscle, fat, and liver, where it’s used for energy. Glucose comes from the food you eat. The liver also makes glucose in times of need, such as when you’re fasting. When blood glucose, also called blood sugar, levels rise after you eat, your pancreas releases insulin into the blood. Insulin then lowers blood glucose to keep it in the normal range.

Insulin resistance is when cells in your muscles, fat, and liver don’t respond well to insulin and can’t easily take up glucose from your blood. As a result, your pancreas makes more insulin to help glucose enter your cells. As long as your pancreas can make enough insulin to overcome your cells’ weak response to insulin, your blood glucose levels will stay in the healthy range.

Quick weight loss tip 4

Find a weight loss program that can work with your insurance using evidence based measures to lose weight fast and effective such as W8MD’s insurance medical weight loss program.
