How to Drop A Few Quick Pounds In Less Than A Week So You Can Wear Your Favorite Jeans

Aug 17, 2007
Different ways to lose weight is a major subject of magazines, television shows and advertisements. Many people wait until they have an important social event to attend before trying, so they need ways to shed pounds quickly. There are ways to lose weight quickly so that you will get you ready in time for your event.

One of the important things to do when trying to lose weight is to consume plenty of protein. Protein keeps the body from feeling hungry and going in to "famine" mode, storing fat instead of decreasing it. Eating protein every three hours will keep you from being hungry. It's also important to have several ounces before you go to bed, so your body will continue to not store fat while you sleep. Be sure to eat lean protein, like fish or lean cuts of meat. Chicken breast works well as does beans and eggs. You can also purchase a protein supplement in a tasty shake or bar. This will add variety and satisfy your sweet tooth as well.

Another great way to take off the pounds is to drink more water. Many people are dehydrated and don't know it, so the body will hoard four to six pounds of water to make up for the deficit. By drinking lots of water, the body will stop storing so much and you will be able to lose four pounds of water weight alone.

Instead of eating three large meals a day, eat a lot of smaller meals throughout the day. This will also keep your body from storing fat due to hunger. It will also speed up your metabolism and because you won't be hungry, you will take in less calories during the course of the day.

It's recommended that we exercise at least 30 minutes a day. To lose weight quickly, try to increase the time to 2 hours per day. In order to lose weight, you have to burn more calories than you consume, so increasing your exercise will do just that.

Lastly, try to reduce the amount of carbohydrates that you take in. It takes more carbs than protein to feel full and carbs are considered empty calories. By increasing your intake of protein, and lessening that of carbs, you can burn off the fat faster.

Keep in mind that these are tips that will get you off to a good start but you should always be cautious when starting any kind of diet. It's been proven that the weight lost quickly in a week could very well be regained in a little as three weeks and then you will have to start all over again. For lasting weight loss, be prepared to take the time and effort required to achieve and maintain your goals.
