Are you looking for a quick weight loss solution for an important event like a Christmas party or your spouses annual office party? Are you wondering as to “How Can I Lose Weight in a Day or Two?” If that is you; looking for a quick weight loss solution before an important event then you have come to the right place.
First off, do not fall prey to the temptation of taking the latest diet pill or any other food fad. They may give you a quick result but at the cost of enormous side effects in the long run. Additionally, such pills or weight loss “systems” are habitual and hence once hooked; you will find it difficult to get away from the temptation. A diet pill will simply squeeze water from your body cells to trick you into thinking that you have lost a heck lot of weight. Your body will simply regain this “lost weight” once you get back to your regular diet. There is absolutely no need to pull this sort of unnecessary stunt when you can lose weight in a healthy and natural manner.
You must also have realistic expectations; I hope you are not looking to loose 20 pounds in one day! That sort of a thing is not just impossible but also immensely detrimental to your general health. A more reasonable target would be to lose 1 or 2 pounds in a day or two so as to gain a slimmer look. There is a way to do this without sweating in gym (In case you don nott like that) or starving yourself to death. Here are a few things which you can do for the same:
1. Increase your water intake.
Water is the most important constituent of your body. After all, 85 percent of your body is water. It helps in healthy digestion of food and also removes waste products from your body. Simply put, it acts as a natural purifier and hence will cleanse your entire system in a natural way. This is very important since your internal system must operate smoothly for easy weight loss. In case you workout regularly then your body needs even more water since you lose it consistently (as sweat) in the gym. Make sure you drink at least six liters of water on a daily basis.
2. Increase your meals throughout the day
I bet this one comes as a surprise! Let me elaborate. Instead of eating three large meals throughout the day you must eat five to six small meals at regular 2 to 3 hour intervals. The key phrase here is “small meals” meaning you are not eating to satisfy your complete appetite but rather just eating enough so as to get by until the next meal. A great way to do this is to buy those small snacks that have one serving of 100 calorie packages. You might have to look for the ones which you like since some of them taste pretty nasty.
Remember, that to lose weight you need to be burning more calories than you intake and hence you must eat natural foods which the body can burn easily. You also need to make a daily reading of the amount of calorie you intake. Just maintain a calorie diary in which you jot down the calorie content of every single item that you ate throughout the day.
3. Engage in strenuous physical activity
This one is optional but will do wonders if followed. Remember when I said above that you need to burn more calories than you intake. Well if you engage yourself in some form of resistance training then your calorie burning will increase dramatically. If working out with weights is not your cup of coffee then you can engage in light cardio exercises for an hour or High Level Interval Training for half an hour.
