So you are wondering how to lose weight in a week? Maybe you have to go be part of a special event? maybe a party, maybe you are looking for a quick start for losing weight? Whatever the reasons are, I am writing this post to give you tips that help me to lose weight.
There are five tips that will make you lose weight in one week.
1.- Day one, write down all the calories you eat in that day. Keep the number because is crucial to keep track of the calories you are ingesting during that day. Weight yourself and keep record of it as you will compare it with the weight you will achieve the next week.
2.- The following day, cut down your daily intake by 500 calories of the total you had eaten the day before, and during the week, keep off the 500 Calories every day. It is important you cut more in carbs and fats than in fruits and veggies. Decreasing 500 Calories per day, results in 3500 Calories that your body will not stored, so in one week you will lose at least one pound of fat, which equals 3500 calories.
3.- Split your three main meals into 5 smaller meals. Eating 5 smaller meals will accelerate your metabolism, and you will lose extra weight over the cutting of the 500 calories. But remember, the rule is "smaller meals". For example if you eat for breakfast eggs, orange juice with 2 slices or bread and jam, break it down and eat the eggs and orange juice and later eat 1 slice of bread with the jam. (remember you have to cut 500 Calories as well).
4.- Increase your physical activity, preferable cardio exercises for example one hour walking or do some jogging or swim at least 30 minutes during 3 to 5 times a week. More you exercise, more weight you are going to lose.
5.- Weight yourself the last day of the week. You will notice a big difference. If you stick to the plan, you will lose at least 3 pounds of weight, if you did less, like cheating or you did not exercise can be less, maybe just one, if you cut in Carbohydrates you will lose also water that your body storage when we eat them which can increase you total of weight loss.
