If you are trying to lose weight in a week, I have got one thing to tell you: stop. It can be extremely dangerous for your health. That being said, I fear that no matter what I say, I cannot stop you from trying to lose weight in a week – so I will explain how it can be done.
The only time you would use such a method is if you have an upcoming social event that you need to lose weight for; if you are trying to lose weight for a longer period of time – this is the wrong way to do it. Before you start, I would strongly recommend that you consult a doctor prior to starting any weight loss method. Especially if you are trying to lose weight so fast.
Ok – this method is quite simple, the basic idea is that you are trying to lose water weight, not fat. It is impossible for you to burn fat in such a short amount of time, however, you can lose around 10-15 pounds of water weight in a week. This is something that a lot of boxers, wrestlers and MMA fighters do so that they can fight in their weigh class. It is quite possible for an average person to do.
There are two basic things that you need to do – the first is that you need to start exercising like crazy, to point that you work up a sweat. You should wear heavily clothes, such as a jumper and track pants, this will cause your body to sweat Essentially, you are trying to draw the water out of your body. Cardio is the best form of exercise to work up a sweat.
Keep in mind, that any weight that you do lose will be gained back the next time you drink something – so you should do this the day before your social event.
The second thing: you should avoid all carbohydrates, again, this should never be done in the long term as it can destroy your health. However, for a week, for the average person it should be safe. Instead of carbohydrates, you should eat lean protein such as fish – fish is actually quite healthy.
In short, the way to lose weight in a week is simple: you need to avoid carbohydrates and sweat like crazy. If you do not want to exercise like a machine, then you can always sit in a hot room wearing a lot of clothes for a few hours. Just remember, this is not a good long term goal and could be detrimental to your health.
The problem with these approaches to weight loss is, as I have already said, they are not good for the long term. You will gain all the weight back, in many cases you will gain a lot more back. So they should only be used once, if at all in your life time.
If you want to burn bodyweight for any sustained period of time, then I recommend that you start a health weight loss diet and regular low intensity exercise. This is a much slower process, however, you will be able to maintain it and keep it off for longer.
