When you see the phrase “super quick weight loss”, you may be brought to mind visions of present, past and future fad diets, however, this might not be the case. It is possible to keep a healthy diet and see some results of fast weight loss. It just takes several minutes per day if you do this correctly.
1. Add water with lemon.
It is known that people should drink 64 ounces of water per day. The Mayo Clinic called this as the 8 x 8 rule, which means eight glasses of water eight times each day. Due to the diuretic properties of lemon, adding a wedge of it into water might yield some results of weight loss. It can also help flush excess water out from your body, with bacteria and toxins in the water. You can decide how much lemon juice to add according to your tastes, but actually the more, the better. A quick warning: don’t add any artificial sweeteners or sugar into your drinks because they will cancel out the health benefits of adding lemon.
2. Up your protein.
This rule is generally for your breakfast. Instead of having cereal and toast, you can opt for an egg or two. It is known that eggs can provide high levels of satiety for a relatively long time period for most people due to their protein content. Adding eggs to your breakfast can help you say no to temptation during the whole day and reap big diet rewards.
3. Take a walk.
There is a sure-fire way to jump start and exercise routine—walking three time a day just for 10 minutes. The Mayo Clinic suggests that walking is an exercise that almost anyone can do, and the only expense for this exercise is a decent pair of walking shoes. You can set your own goals for walking and try to encourage yourself to build up to longer and more challengeable walks.
4. One-day super diet.
Good Housekeeping magazine recommends that this one-day super diet may just have it all. It can aid in weight-loss and can also act as a reset button in case of over-indulgence during the whole week. It is recommended to follow the 1,200-calorie meal plan for just one day each week so that you can keep yourself on track for the rest six days. This meal plan should contain healthy foods in form of veggies, fruits, whole grains and low-fat dairy.
