The plan I’m about to show you is not a long term fix for weight loss, but it can quickly help you lose some pounds in a short possible time like one week.
Take for instance, you want to go for a photo shoot or you want to go for an even and you want to lose some weight before the effect, so that maybe you could fit into that dress you like so much.
Well, this plan will help you do that. It will help you lose about 10 lbs in one single week.
However, If you have an eating disorder like anorexia, this plan is not recommended.
Also, note that the pounds you’ll be losing will not be purely body fat. It will be part body fat and part water.
Which means you’ll lose some of your body fat and you’ll also lose some of the excess water in your body.
That said, what are the steps you need to follow to lose those pounds? Here is the first step.
1. Reduce your calorie intake
If you’re really serious about losing weight then you’ll know that you need to make some changes in your lifestyle to make it happen, especially in way you eat or the type of food you eat.
Changing your diet is the single most effective way of losing weight, and in this step, all you need to do is to change the amount of calories you consume per day.
Reducing your food calorie intake below your daily calorie requirement helps your body starts burning the excess calories stored up in your body as fat which leads to weight loss.
Use a calorie counting tool to keep track of the calories in the food you take, and make sure not to eat too much calories than what is required for you to lose weight.
Check out this calculator, it will show you how much calories you should be eating per day to lose weight.
2. Eat low carb meals and more learn protein
Going on a low-carb diet like the keto diet and eating plenty of lean protein is a very effect way to lose several pounds within a few day.
All you have to do so to drastically reduce the amount of high carbs or starchy carbs/sugars you eat for 7 days and replace it with protein rich foods like fish, eggs and lean meat.
The low carb diet will ensure your body starts burning fat for energy since there’s very little amount of carbs to burn and the protein diet will reduce your appetite making you eat less than you usually do.
3. Eat whole foods and avoid processed junk food
Eating highly process junk food is a one way ticket of gaining more weight. To lose weight eat simple diets based on whole foods high in protein and low carb veggies.
4. Become active by exercising
If you are really serious about losing weight for that event or that photo shoot, then you need to stop doing things that make you gain weight such as not exercising.
You don’t have to become the greatest athlete in the world overnight, but you can just start by visiting the gym first and lifting some weight.
If you don’t know how, ask someone to guide you in the gym. Exercising will not only help you lose weight but it will also improve your appearance by helping you gain some muscles and tone up your body.
You don’t have to be active only in the gym. You can also take it out there and try other activities such as jogging.
Losing weight is a matter of changing your lifestyle. If your habits are making you gain weight, then you need to change them and take up another lifestyle that will help you lose weight and maintain a beautiful body even if it’s just for one week.
If you make the changes outlined in the four steps above, then you’ll surely lose up to 10 lbs or more in one week for that event you want to go or for that photo shoot.
Who knows, you may like your new body so much that you’ll continue that weight loss lifestyle.
