How To Lose Weight In A Week
Although it is generally true that weight loss is something that should be approached as a long term goal that should include smart, healthy nutritional choices and moderate regular exercise, it is also true that there are some times when you just need to lose a few pounds quickly. Whether you have a special event that you want to look your best for, or are just trying to jump start a long term diet and are looking for something to really motivate you to stick with it, there are a number of effective ways to lose enough weight in a week for you to see and feel the difference.
How To Lose Weight In A Week Fast Even though the first few pounds that are lost on a diet are generally excess water weight, they can still make you feel better and look better. The most successful diets often take advantage of this fact, knowing that a jump start to a diet can reinforce and encourage the dieter to continue on a diet plan. The one rule that seems to be on every diet is to be sure to drink plenty of water. The reason for this is that drinking water can make you feel full, adds no calories, no sodium and no carbohydrates. Water will flush out toxins and carry excess water weight out of your system, helping you to lose a couple of pounds quickly. Many people don't realize that if you don't drink enough, your body will hold onto more water than it needs because it responds to prevent dehydration. Stay away from anything with sugar or corn syrup, as they not only add wasted calories, but they also may make you hungrier. One exception to this rule is drinking coffee before exercising; studies have shown that if you drink a cup of coffee with a bit of skim milk thirty minutes before a workout, you will burn more calories.
How To Lose Weight In A Week With Exercise If you are trying to lose weight in a short period of time, it is essential that you combine the most effective diet you can find with exercising every day; vigorous cardiovascular exercise that gets your heart pumping, combined with a cut in caloric intake, is the most effective way to lose weight, and you should try to do at least thirty minutes of aerobic activity per day. Exercising not only burns more calories, it also builds muscle, and muscle burns calories at a higher rate than fat does. The best fat burning cardiovascular exercises combine very fast training with slower intervals, but if you are not in physical condition to do rigorous exercise, make sure that you are doing more than you normally would. Take the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator, park your car farther away from your destination to force yourself to walk. Even the slightest increase in exercise, done on a daily basis, can make a big difference in how you look and feel.
How To Lose Weight In A Week Without Pills Losing weight does not require supplements or pills. In addition to drinking plenty of water and exercising, nutritional experts recommend that those wishing to lose weight in a week cut carbs and white grains substantially, replacing them with fruits and vegetables which are low in calories and will keep you feeling full longer. A serving or two of lean protein each day combined with these high density foods will keep you full and help you drop a few pounds without feeling like you are depriving yourself. It is important that you don't cut your calories too dramatically or your health could suffer; try to keep your caloric intake to no less than 1,500 calories per day. This quick start will also set you on the path to continued better habits.
