Did you know you could actually lose weight in a week? Most of us want to lose weight as quickly as possible, so if rapid weight loss is your goal, keep reading as this page will talk you through some of the best approaches to dropping weight in 7 days! Most people who need fast weight loss try to achieve it by fasting or starving themselves. BIG mistake! What many people don't realize is that this type of approach is the WORST possible way to lose weight fast! Surprised I bet? Well let's just take a moment and talk about why this doesn't work..
When you starve your body for an
extended period of time, your
metabolism slows down to the point that it's almost impossible for you
to burn extra
calories at all. This is a natural response and your body's way of trying to save as many calories as it can. However, by regularly fueling the body, you can keep your metabolism high and continue burning calories constantly. THIS is the dieting approach you need to follow to achieve the results you really want to see!
There are a few simple rules to follow which will help you lose weight in a week and be thrilled with the results. For the next 7 days, follow these guidelines exactly, with NO cheating! Firstly, you need to record your weight and body measurements prior to starting the week. Keep a weight loss journal where you can record your food consumption, daily activity, and thoughts - this will help you to keep your motivation up and stay on track for the whole week. You can expect to have a few tough days, but stay focused!
The next step is to eat
3 small meals each day with 2 small snacks. Meals should be
approximately 300 calories each and snacks should be 100 calories each. Eat healthy, highly nutritious foods and NO empty calories! What is an empty' calorie? Well fast food, microwave meals, processed foods, candy, sugary sodas - these are all empty calories as they offer you zero nutritional value at all. Stick to fruit, vegetables and fresh meat for best results.
