Jim Germanakos – The story of the Weight Loss Twins

As the father of those famous Weight Loss Twins, George Germanakos, used to point out, "The only way to get something done is to get it started." You can just imagine how utterly overjoyed and proud he would have been if he had lived for long enough to watch his twin boys, Bill and Jim, exercise and diet their path to success on series 4 of the enormously popular NBC weight-loss series The Biggest Loser and become known as the Weight Loss Twins. You'll be surprised to hear, it wasn't always exactly like that, although Jim Germanakos has traditionally been a massive fan of the television series. Jim's a Manhattan cop and a huge family man. Up to 2 years ago, whenever his shifts allowed, he would sit on the settee before the TV munching away on high-cal comfort snacks, soaked up by the stories of the shrinking contestants, but not particularly worried about his particular 295lb ever growing frame. That was before his own "ahaa" time, before he became one half of the famous Weight Loss Twins along with his brother Bill.

How to lose weight fast

There's no doubt that many people need to lose a few pounds. Walk around where people gather, you'll notice the fat. Look in the mirror, unfortunately you'll likely see it there too. If you've made fast weight loss your goal, keep a few simple things in mind to take off the pounds quickly and safely.

Skipping meals is one of the first things people often try when they want to lose weight. It makes sense, right, cut out the calories by eating one fewer meal. Doesn't weight loss come with eating less calories? That's correct but skipping meals isn't the right way to reduce calories. When you skip meals your body goes into starvation mode. It starts to retain fat to counteract what it perceives as a food shortage. Another problem with skipping meals is that when you finally eat you'll be a lot more hungry. The result is binge eating. Skipping meals is the worst of both worlds that results in gaining even more weight. Don't skip meals.

Have a plan on how much to eat. Portion control is just as important as eating the right food. Too much of even a healthy food still results in weight gain. Portion control isn't easy when large portions are so common. Restaurants serve over large portions, as do most people at home. Sources such as the FDA list recommended daily allowances. And remember portion size when you eat at restaurants, especially fast food restaurants. You'll likely have to cut down on what a restaurant serves.

Eat more whole grain foods, skip the white grains such as white bread, sugar and white rice. Whole grains are rich in nutrients and low in fat. The fiber in whole grains will make you feel fuller faster and longer. Also whole grains contain many nutrients that are often lacking in people's diets.

Drink more water. Drink it instead of juices and sodas which add about 90,000 calories to the average person's diet each year. Drink it between meals too. In fact, the goal is 8 glasses of water each day. It's easily possible. Drinking water will also promote health in general by keeping you well hydrated and helping to avoid overheating.

Eat healthy snacks between meals. The body needs food every three to four hours to maintain proper blood sugar. Healthy snacks also help control eating at meal times.

Fast weight loss isn't impossible with a little knowledge and planning. It won't be long before you're slimmer and trimmer.
