If like most people you’ve in the past experienced points where you need to lose weight quickly, whether going on vacation or to a social event or to a wedding. If this has been you, there are some simple ways to lose five or maybe even 10 pounds within just a week. Even though I’ve always been a true believer that trying to lose weight fast can be quite difficult on your body, there are certain ways to do so in a healthy manner. These are tricks that your body will actually respond to and modify your weight as a result.
You need to remember that these are not going to be a list of long-term strategies designed to help you lose weight permanently, rather they are meant for short-term needs and should be used sparingly. You always want to think about losing weight as a long-term goal, and not something to do as part of a crash diet frequently. Having said that, we have accumulated for effective and easy ways for you to achieve this kind of rapid weight loss just in time for an event or social gathering.
Control Your Intake of Water
So let’s start out with a very easy trick, controlling how much water you take in. What difference is that you have a schedule on Saturday that requires you to go to an event, all of these tips will be based upon a weight loss from the Sunday previous. The first thing you want to do on that Sunday is starting to drink water, 1 gallon or more per day. This will cause you to go to the restroom often, but that’s precisely what it is designed to do. You’re tricking your body into believing that you have an abundance of dietary water sources, say from fruits, and to increase your metabolism as a result. Fruits and vegetables naturally increase your metabolism through their influence on your body chemistry.
After this you want to keep drinking this heavy amount of water, working her way up to 2 gallons per day, and then by Friday afternoon stop drinking water nearly entirely. Your body will actually shed all the water weight you put on within as little as 24 hours. This is a very temporary solution but is a really easy way to shed some fat quickly.
Changing Your Electrolyte Intake
**Note: It’s important to consult with a doctor before diving into modifying your body’s electrolyte balance**
Electrolytes are known to cause water retention, sodium and potassium being the biggest two culprits. Starting the Sunday prior to the week of your diet, you need to increase your sodium intake. This means that you put salt on everything, doing this all the way through Thursday. Lastly on Thursday will lower your salt intake back to normal and then begin to increase your potassium intake. Water retention is actually caused by sodium in our bodies, whereas potassium helps keep muscles functioning properly. Mineral waters are a good additional source of sodium.
Control Your Carbohydrate Levels
Many people have probably heard that reducing your carbohydrate intake will help you to lose weight quickly. Practically everyone is tried a new carb or low-carb weight loss method at some point, and are familiar with is how quickly you will lose weight doing so. Your body will actually store carbohydrates as glycogen in your muscles and liver. It makes sense that the fewer carburetors you eat the less your body will be able to store glucose. Once you begin your week on Sunday, you need to eat foods that are high in protein and fat loan carbohydrates. Eating this only throughout the entire week until your planned event on the weekend. Goal is to eat at least 1 g of protein for every pound of bodyweight.
Since you’re reducing the level carbohydrates read every day, going to have to supplement the loss of glucose energy through different proteins. This process is known as: gluconeogenesis. As always your gain of protein to support typical level protein synthesis you need, which is used in your brain and central nervous system, corridors are not necessary.
Start Cutting Out Your Stored Glyogen
On average people’s bodies will contain severely 500 grams of glycogen. Every single gram of glycogen also store 3 g of water approximately. Doing a little bit of math we figure out that the average person has about 5 pounds of additional weight tied up in the glycogen. Once you deplete your glycogen stores it’s an easy way to lose five or so pounds the first week. And yes this is definitely possible to do a single week’s time. Firstly you’re going to have to commit to doing exercise daily with a high intensity, training every single muscle in your body. This might sound like too much, but the reality is that losing weight in a single week is very difficult.
There is a difference between aerobic and anaerobic exercises, this difference is critical for this to work. Depleting the glycogen stores, requires incorporation of anaerobic exercise into your fitness schedule, which is typically not much of a deal breaker.
