When you want to lose weight in just a few days, motivation does not play a vital role in your diet. All you need is an efficient short-term weight loss plan, which you can follow to the letter for three or four days. Moreover, try to understand that you will only be able to lose water from unlocked water deposits, and not fat. Fat loss only occurs in average or long-term dieting.
Methods to lose weight fast
Two methods are extremely efficient in fast weight loss: detoxification and crash diets. The former is based on raw foods with few calories and high nutrient content, such as green vegetables and fruit rich in water (watermelon or citrus fruit), homemade natural juices and at least 2 liters of water intake daily. Detox will have a double effect: in addition to helping you lose several pounds in a relatively short amount of time, it will also clean your body of toxins. However, the longer and more planned the detox is, the better its results.
Crash diets function on the principle that you should eat fewer calories than your body burns throughout a day. Many restrictive diets cut the calorie intake in half or even more and they have good results. The hardest part is to learn to continue your diet in a healthy manner and don’t try to cheat on it. Usually, a 3-day crash diet is only meant to jump-start your weight loss, as it imposes many restrictions, which are hard to respect in the long run. Like detox, the crash diet should help you eliminate excess water, clean your body of toxins and be focused on eating low-calorie foods.
Rules you should follow in a short-term diet
- Base your diet on your normal eating habits, cutting the unhealthy foods.
- Set achievable weight loss goals.
- Don’t try to cheat on your diet, since it’s not too difficult to refrain yourself from eating “forbidden” foods for a couple of days anyway.
- Count calories. It might be boring or frustrating, but it’s the easiest way to keep track of your calorie intake.
In conclusion, short-term dieting has the purpose of motivating you to change your life style. The diet should be able to prove you that it possible to lose weight and achieve your dream silhouette. Sometimes, even 5-10 pounds lost can make a great difference in giving you a better perspective on dieting. If you want to continue losing weight on a diet of your choice, try to choose a weight loss plan compatible with your life style.
