1. Drink green tea. Get this: When a recent study compared the metabolic effect of green tea (in extract) with that of a placebo, researchers found that the green-tea drinkers burned about 70 additional calories in a 24-hour period. If you can believe it, those 70 calories a day add up to a total of 7.3 pounds of fat a year! It’s not magic, it’s science: Researchers believe the difference is caused by metabolism-enhancing antioxidants known as catechins, which are found in green tea.

How fast is ‘fast’? Losing more than 3 pounds a week is too rapid, since it doesn’t give the body a chance to reabsorb the extra skin. Ever see a real photo of people who did lap-band or similar procedures? Sure, they lost 85-100 pounds, but their skin falls in folds around their body due to the loss being so rapid.
Don’t be lulled by those headlines like “LOSE 10 POUNDS BY THE WEEKEND!!” Those methods are unhealthy and unsustainable.
Stick to 500-600 calories per Fast day. If you want to up the ante, eat 300 calorie dinners one extra night per week. That’s high quality calories: protein, vegetables, fruit, complex carbs [if any.] Oh! and no sodas, diet or otherwise.
Slow and steady, that’s the ticket.
Sorry about this, but it isn’t just how quickly you lose weight – age is a factor. My weight loss average is about 2lb a week but the missing fat leaves floppy bits that don’t go away like they did when I was younger. If you can think of a way for the older guy to solve this problem you could get very rich.

I don’t believe that fast weight lost is usually sustainable.. However, the 5:2 method of fasting is more realistic with a pound or two a week.
I agree about skin and age, too. Although I’ve lost two stone and look trim, my thighs and arms are now very wrinkled

I agree about the loose skin thing being affected by age. I’m 68. The highest my BMI has ever been is about 26, so while my skin is looser, I’ve never had rolls of loose skin after losing weight. But I have seen more wrinkles on my thighs and upper arms. The place I don’t seem to see more wrinkles (just the normal ones) on my face. In fact my face seems to look better after weight loss. I wonder if that’s because I always use moisturizers on my face because it feels dry and to slow down the appearance of wrinkles and I don’t regularly use moisturizer on the rest of my body. What do you think?

Not easy if you are older admittedly but anyone younger loose skin shouldn’t be that much of an issue.

Weight loss at the cost of your original beauty or health is insane, weight loss is actually a wrong term rather it should be called “WEIGHT MAINTENANCE” because efforts we make are only to get to the healthier scale not to melt our self just to reduce some inches, having pale face tired approach and deadly appearance after killing our selves doing hard work is not weight loss but it should be called “LIFE LOSS”. are you agree?

I am resolved to by and by get more fit.
I’m sorry but I don’t agree that burning 70 more calories a day will equate to losing 7 lbs a year. It might but it probably won’t.
In the USA the per capita food consumption is in excess of 2700 calories a day according to the government FDA statistics. Not everyone is a young male weight lifter on a hard workout program so those figures are quite shocking. That probably means that on the average people or over eating about 500 calories a day. But most people only put on a few pounds a year, not tens of pounds.
Metabolism is constantly adjusting and is very complex. Eating well helps but it simply isn’t easy to lose a lot of weight by just doing something like drinking some green tea everyday. It typically takes a lot of changes and effort. It rarely comes easy.
