Ask an R.D.: What's the Quickest Way to Lose Weight Safely?

Have you gained weight while staying at home? Or are you looking forward to a future event? If so, you might be wondering how to lose weight quickly. We understand: You want to look and feel your best! But it’s important not to fall prey to fad diets that promise dramatic, fast, ongoing weight loss, especially if they’re too restrictive. 


“Diets that overly limit or eliminate nutrients can backfire and actually cause you to gain weight over time,” explains Briana Rodriquez, Registered Dietitian at Jenny Craig. “It’s far more effective — and safer — to follow a well-rounded diet plan that moderately restricts calories and includes adequate amounts of all necessary nutrients.”


I spoke with Briana to find out the quickest way to lose weight that’s still safe and sustainable. She emphasized that the most effective type of weight loss plan (like Jenny Craig) may help you lose weight rapidly at the outset but at a healthy, moderate rate of weight loss of 1-2 pounds per week. Here are her top tips to lose weight fast and keep it off. 


Before beginning any weight loss program, talk to your healthcare provider.
