Many people want to lose weight, but for different reasons. In order to tell you what you need to do to change your body, I must first know why you want to do this in the first place. Generally speaking, there are 3 reasons why you would want to shed those extra pounds:
1. You need to go to an important event, like a wedding, an anniversary and so on and you need to make sure that you will be presentable within 2 weeks.
2. You have to shed those extra pounds because of the same reason, which is due to happen in a month’s time or later.
3. You are looking for the quickest possible way of losing 20 pounds for good.
If your answer is #1, then you need to follow a diet that will help you reach fast results, because we are talking about losing weight in 2 weeks. But please remember that all this will get you are sort term changes, because the diets I’m talking about only have that kind of effect. So what you need to do now is to start a low-calorie diet, like the TWA Stewardess Diet.
If you follow it exactly, you will be able to lose 10 pounds in four days, which is also the duration of the diet. But you may want to think about finding a way of changing your eating habits permanently, if you don’t want to gain all the weight back once you are done.
This weight loss method has another downside, which is that you will be always hungry for the duration of the diet. If you want to lose weight even faster, you can try some fat burning foods.
If your answer is #2, you need to find long term weight loss methods that not only promise results, but also deliver. This way you will shed that extra fat and you will not gain it back. I’ve already told you what the quickest way of losing weight is, but be careful, because that’s not necessarily the best way of doing so. What you are better off doing in this case is limiting your carbohydrate intake, to about 20 grams a day, because this way you will increase your metabolism, which in return will make you burn fat faster.
If in your case it’s #3, you need to do what I just said at #2, which is reducing your carbohydrate intake, therefore accelerating your metabolism. If you do so, you will lose about 20 pounds in two months, without ever gaining it back. In order for this to happen, you need to pick a diet that offers the solution I’ve just talked about or if you don’t trust any of them, you can make one yourself, but first you need to count micronutrients with a calculator and you can then define your goals and make a diet plan.
