Was there ever a situation where you needed to know how to lose weight fast in a week? Maybe it is your big date coming up, a dinner and dance event, prom night or maybe even marriage in only a week's time?
Honest speaking, it is slowly late to start worrying and trying to lose any excess body fat. However, there are still some tips and ways in which you can try to look slowly slimmer and less puffy before your big day.
Since you wish to find out how to lose weight fast in a week, losing water weight will be our main focus now. By losing water weight, your legs, arms and stomach will look less bloated and instead look more slim. Also, you should be performing interval cardio exercises and body weight exercises if you wish to speed up the process.
Extra water weight retained by your body causes your skin to look thicker, and any muscle definition blurred. Luckily for you, water weight is probably easy to lose, even within a short period of time, however you still need strong determination during this week. Are you ready?
Firstly, to reduce excess water weight, you will need to drink more water daily! This sounds paradoxical but it actually is not. If you are not drinking sufficient amounts of water daily, your body will try its best to retain onto every water molecule, causing water retention. On the other hand, if you are consuming sufficient levels of water daily, your body will not go into 'survival' mode and the water retention effect will be greatly reduced.
Next, you should take meals which are very high in protein, but very low in fat and carbohydrates content. This may not directly help you lose water weight, but it is a good diet plan to lose weight when combined with appropriate weight loss exercises.
Lastly, you should also perform some interval cardio exercises. However, since you only have a week to lose weight, you should perform them every other day. In the case that you do not have any idea what interval cardio is, it is a form of cardio exercise where you sprint for a short distance or time, and jogging for twice that distance or time. Repeat this cycle over and over again at an intensity which challenges you adequately. If you are suffering from leg injuries, you can swim instead. Interval cardio is also proven by experts that it is the most effective form of cardio in helping one lose body fat.
