Have a big event coming up soon? Want to be able to lose a few pounds before it arrives? Well, if so, there are some things you can do if you need to lose weight fast.
Please don’t think that you are going to drop 20 lbs. in a week, you’re not. Even if that were possible, and I’m not sure it is, it would be unhealthy for you.
Your better bet is to start early. I mean, come on, let’s face facts, we know if we have a wedding or a class reunion coming up. We have plenty of time to lose weight if we really want to, don’t wait until the last minute.
If you just want to lose 5-10 pounds in a few weeks, that is much more realistic.
Now, I’m going to warn you, some of these tips are borderline unhealthy. For many people, if they aren’t done to extreme or for too long, they are fine but you have to talk to your doctor first.
Getting your doctors ok is the best way to ensure success and that you don’t end up in the hospital. Talk to your doctor and run any type of weight loss plan by her before you start, not after.
So, if you need to lose weight fast, here are some tips I recommend:
1. Find a healthy cleanse or fast. Sometimes you may accomplish both at the same time. There are many recipes online that will allow you to make a cleansing drink. You can then go on a diet for a few days which will consist mainly of a liquid diet with only a bit of solid foods.
Always make sure you talk to your doctor first and always make sure you stay on such a program for no more than 2 or 3 days.
This can help you clean out your body and purge excess toxins out of your system. Most of the weight loss you see will only be water weight and you will gain much of it back when you go off the cleanse, but it may be enough to help you fit into that new suit or dress for your special event.
2. Drink more water. At first, you may actually get a little bloated but after a day or so you should see you are losing water weight. That is because you are going to the bathroom more frequently.
You will also flush excess toxins from your system. Another benefit is that you are keeping your body well hydrated which will improve the appearance of your skin and hair.
3. Do not starve yourself. Instead eat 5 or 6 small, nutritious meals daily. When you do that you are keeping your metabolism working more efficiently and burning hot all day long.
That is the best way to lose weight more quickly. I lost 6 pounds in one week using this method and the best part was that I lost excess body fat and not just water weight.
Just include the right balance of lean protein, carbs, and fat. Find out how much of each you should have by talking to your doctor first.
If you need to lose weight fast make sure you talk to your doctor, stay healthy, and use these ideas as a starting point.
