Many are wondering if it is possible to lose weight in a week and how to go about making it happen. For the most part, weight loss is viewed by people as a complicated if not nearly impossible feat. However, it can be done and one week is just enough time.
Here are some tips on how to lose weight in one week:
Say No to Junk Food
One of the main culprits in the widespread obesity epidemic is the very popular junk food culture which has become part of people’s lifestyles these days. If you want to lose weight fast, you have to immediately ditch this very unhealthy habit because junk foods pack hundreds, sometimes thousands of empty calories per bag.
If you are hankering for a snack or when struck by severe hunger pangs, munch on fresh fruits instead since they are healthy as they are filling.
Stick to a Low Calorie- High Protein Diet
In order for the body to lose excess pounds, a deficit in calorie should take place. This means consuming less calories that what you burn and forcing the system to work harder in order to transform kinetic energy (food) to usable energy.
Getting on a high protein diet makes this possible because protein is much harder to metabolize which means the body will have to burn more calories in the process.
One Week Cardio Plan
No matter how much you limit your food intake, you will never lose weight in a week if there is no physical activity involved. Cardio exercises such as brisk walking, jogging, or running are very important in order to keep the heart rate up and allow continuous burning of excess calories.
Dedicate at least 45 minutes to an hour of everyday doing cardio workout so as to get a lot of headway. It would also be wise to continue the existing fitness plan beyond one week to make even better progress.
