Weight Loss Tips From 45 Year Old Mom Who Lost 20 Pounds in 15 Days
Losing weight seems an uphill task to many, especially when you need to lose weight fast.
And especially when you need to look good for an upcoming occasion or event.
For achieving quick weight loss like ten pounds in a week, people often resort to crash dieting or spend hours sweating out in the gym.
In fact, there are countless fad diets that enable you to shed pounds in a couple of days, but they have detrimental effects on your body and health, leaving you sick, hungry and nutrition deprived.
Of course, there are other painless ways to achieve this goal without dieting.
All you need to do is maintain a healthy lifestyle comprising of nutrition, fitness, proper sleep and hydration.
Here are 5 strategies to get you going.
If you’re consistent enough, it can lead you to losing up to 20 pounds in a matter of 2 weeks, just like it did for my friend Jennifer who used to weigh over 200 pounds. She lost 10 pounds in the first 7 days of consistently putting these tips to work. And ended up losing over 72 pounds in that same year!
1. Do Not Skip Breakfast
Breakfast is, undoubtedly, one of the most important meals of the day and skipping it in an urge to cut calories is not at all a great option.
In fact, several studies have shown that people who had breakfast regularly had comparatively lower BMIs than breakfast skippers.
So, kick start your day a healthy and nutritious way by having a bowl of oatmeal or whole grain cereal topped with fruit or low fat dairy. Y
ou can also have scrambled eggs to fulfil your protein requirements, but avoid heavy and oily foods for breakfast.
2. Incorporate Lean Proteins In Your Diet
Incorporating lean proteins in your meals and snacks will keep you from overeating by keeping you full for longer.
You can try 98% lean beef, skinless chicken breast, eggs and certain fish like salmon.
For vegetarians, soy products like edamame or tofu, low fat yogurt, peanut butter, nuts and beans are good sources of lean proteins.
Besides, it is advisable to have frequent meals at an interval of 3 to 4 hours to maintain your blood sugar levels and avoid overindulgence.
3. Cut the Consumption of Simple Carbohydrates
Simple carbs, also known as refined carbohydrates, get absorbed by our body quickly but provide zero nutrition.
So it is advisable to stay away from simple carbs like cookies, candies, molasses, honey, cakes and other
4. Avoid Liquid Calories
As stated earlier, to achieve the desirable weight loss, it is important to control the intake of calories and liquid calories are no exception.
The processed fruit juices, energy drinks and aerated drinks might appear tempting, but they load your body with about a third of your entire calories for the day.
Instead, you can quench your thirst with water, citrus juices or 100% percent fruit juices.
Vegetable juices are also a nutritious option to satisfy your hunger in between meals.
Alcohol calories should be particularly avoided as they add up quickly.
So it is advisable to restrict the consumption of wine or cocktails to weekends in order to save calories.
5. Compound Exercises
Compound exercises involve working out multiple joints and are considered the best bodyweight exercises.
For instance, the exercises performed below navel work out your quadriceps, hamstrings and gluteus, the three largest muscle groups in your body.
They create minor after-burn tears in the muscle fibres, causing a large burn in calories post workout as a lot of energy is required to repair those tears.
You can try compound exercises like bench press, squats, clean and press etc.
One last thing… you should try this 30-second morning ritual that burns 2 pounds of belly fat per day…
“All this by a 30-second morning ritual?” I asked.
I met an old friend for lunch last year and I was super impressed with how she lost 72 pounds in 3 months.
She said, “It’s not so much about the 30-second ritual but more about how it releases fat-blasting molecules that signal your brain and body to burn off pounds and inches of trapped fat quickly and naturally.”
Even though I was skeptical, I’ve been struggling with my weight over the last few years, so I gave it a shot and watched the same video she did.
Well, it’s only a couple weeks later and you know what they say about how “you can’t transform your body overnight”…
They’re right — it actually took me 15 days to lose 20 pounds.
Now it’s my girlfriends asking ME what I’M doing differently
