How to lose weight fast? Is that a thing?
Back in the olden days, before modern society, the human race lived in a society where there was freedom to eat any type of food without the effect of gaining weight.
This was very possible because the people worked physically. That was the only way to work since there wasn’t an invention of technologies that could ease them of the physical work they were doing.
They could eat anything they wanted because they were burning more calories than what they consumed.
That was the difference between this modern society and their society, today we have a computer screen in front of us that can run numerous errands for us.
As good as this may feel it has brought adverse effects on our health and left us with one condition- bringing massive weight to some people, especially those who can’t control their diet.
It is right to say that extra weight gained by most people is caused by the comfort this modern technology has brought.
The bad thing about weight gain is that the more you gain, the more it becomes dangerous to your health because extra weight gain causes illness, either diabetes or heart problems.
The best way to prevent weight gain is to take proactive measures by working it off.
This brings the essence of this article, to enlighten those seeking how to burn their fats and lose weight within 10 days. However, it can serve as a proactive measure to other readers.
Drink Enough Water
Drinking water is the first step you can take to lose weight because by taking water alone, you can lose more than 10 pounds of weight.
Water is very remarkable because 66% of the human body weight is nothing but water. This is why water plays an important role in weight control.
It is recommended to drink 8 glasses of water per day because it flushes toxins and makes you feel healthier.
The interesting fact about water is that you can drink as much as you want because it has no calories at all. So, as you drink water, eat less food as well.
We will be introducing a water fasting scheme that will help to burn your fats in 10 days. This fasting scheme is divided into 3 phases.
The first phase or the pre-fasting phase, lasts for 2 days, allowing your body to consume less and less solid foods and making your body more comfortable with a “liquid only” diet like fruits and veggies (lemon, honey, warm water detox drink).
The second phase or the water fasting phase, is the toughest of all, but by the time you complete this phase, I assure you that you will feel like a new person.
Drink neither less nor too much water. Drinking less water can make you dehydrated and drinking more water can flush out all the salts from your body, which can prove to be fatal.
Drink about 1-2 liters of water per day for 5 days. For the first two days, all you lose is water weight, and then your fats begin to burn from the third day.
The last phase of breaking the fast is crucial. You have to gradually re-introduce the solid foods or any other liquid food (juices or soup) for three days.
Eating fruits and veggies in the first and third phases will provide your body with enough vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber to survive the water-fasting phase as well as to recuperate from the fast.
If these 3 phases are fully observed, you will lose about 14 pounds (6kg) of weight in 10 days.
You can lose weight even when you eat the food you love as long as you eat right but treat those foods as luxury items so you enjoy them that much more.
Eat fresh vegetables that have high water content veggies, such as Tomatoes, watermelons, Kiwi, Oranges, and Grapes. All these fruits are juicy and good for you because they contain about 90 to 95% water, meaning you can eat a lot of them without adding a pound.
Reduce your intake of salt
Most people do eat snacks like Namkeen, Chips, Pringles, prawn crackers and processed food that are high in sodium(salt).
Extra salt is added to these snacks for preservation, the high sodium contained in these snacks and some food with much salt causes water retention in the body and the negative effect of this is that it will make you look bloated out.
Salt is so addictive that it won’t make you stop at one chip because you aren’t satisfied; it can make you eat the whole pack and you only cause damage to yourself.
For example, a pack of small potato chips has about 500 calories and these calories will take at least 45 minutes to burn off.
The simplest solution to this is to reduce your intake of salt by eating a lesser amount of chips and other salty snacks or avoiding them.
By doing this, you are preventing extra calories from your body and, most importantly, losing weight.
Do a lot of exercises to Lose weight.
Taking exercises here doesn’t necessarily mean you have to go to the gym. There are several things you can do daily that will help to kick-start your body into losing weight.
Running is one of the exercises that will aid you in losing weight because it burns calories, reduces stress and suppresses appetite hormones.
Some researchers claim exercises like running result in “afterburn,” meaning that one can continue to burn more calories for as long as two hours after you stop running.
Other exercises include push-ups and squatting. You can do this for 15 minutes daily.
These are things you can do at your home instead of going to the gym. Not to say the gym is a bad idea but these domestic exercises will only save you more time and you won’t get tired of working out easily because you won’t be thinking of the stress of going to the gym.
Below are a few exercises you can do that can burn some calories in your body.
|Running at 5-6 mph||300-350|
|Weeding and Cultivating Your Garden.||130-200|
|Sex (Yes, sex can be exercise too).||50-60|
|Ice Skating – general||200-250|
