I’m sure that you have heared of the diet plans that tell you that you can lose 10lbs in just one week. Sure that is possible but it will mostly be water. As for me I have done this routine twice a year to help me get rid of fat that I build up over the holidays and winter. With this plan you can burn up to 5 lbs of fat in a week if you take the right steps. If you are anything like me this might be difficult. I always procrastinate the day of my quick fat loss plan, but once I get started I’m usually good at keeping to it for about a week. So here is a one week crash fat loss plan for people that have A.D.D. like me when it comes to keeping to a weight loss plan. If you are like me and always procrastinate try and set a date. Don’t put it too far ahead because then it is easier to keep putting off. A good plan is to set it at most two to three weeks ahead. Try and start when you are going to have a little extra time on your hands.
Alright, now that we have the date set lets see how we are going to lose that quick weight. If you really want to lose weight fast you are going to have to attack your fat at a few different angles. First you are going to have to diet and when I say diet I mean diet. Burning 5lbs of fat in one week means you will actually lose 10 lbs of weight because 5lbs of it is going to be water weight. The second thing that you are going to need to do is exercise. This is going to be mostly cardio to start off with because I don’t want you to be building much muscle which will make it seem like you aren’t losing weight and get you discouraged. When people start exercising again after a long break of doing nothing their muscles start to build up which increases weight and gives people a false idea that they are not losing fat because their weight stays the same. If this happens to you don’t get discouraged. Your weight will start to drop eventually. The last thing I want you to do is take a diet pill. Yes a diet pill, to help burn some extra calories and make it so that you are not so hungry.
First step is the diet. I want you to drink water and lots of it. This is the simplest but maybe the most effective thing you can do. Forget about soft drinks, and juice. Good old H2O is the way to go.
Next, switch from a diet plan focused around carbs (breads, pastas, fruits, etc.) to one focused around lean sources of protein (egg whites, skinless chicken, turkey breast, fish, whey based protein powders and MRPs, etc.)
Last, eat small frequent meals to keep your metabolism burning on high. You cannot go 5 or 6 hours without eating, get extremely hungry, and pig-out with one huge meal. This is without a doubt the worst way to eat possible, and you’ll never drop fat whith this method. Instead, eat small portions of food every 3 hours throughout the day. Remember no carbs, you can do it for a week.
The next step is the exercise. This is one of the most difficult parts for me. I have a difficult time getting up off of my butt not just because it’s big, but because I’m lazy. You are going to have to do 1hr of cardio a day. I know that seems like a lot but you can do it. I don’t want you going on walks or spending half of the time warming up or getting to the gym. You need one full hour of cardio. If you are at the gym use the treadmill, do a 5 minute warm up then speed things up. Go as fast as you can. You should work out to the point that sweat is dripping off of you. The more sweat the better. If you need to switch go to the bicycle. Each day I want you to do a max sprint for as long as you can. If you can get up to 10 minutes doing your peak sprint level that would be great. By the end of the week I want you to do two peak sprint cycles.
Choosing A Supplment
Last thing I want you to do is take some diet pills. Don’t just pick any run of the mill diet pill, I want you to get the best diet pills. This means they will probably cost you around $60 to $70 dollars a bottle. You should look for one with a number of patented ingredients. Look for a diet pill that works as an appetite suppressant, and increases energy. It will be good to take one of these before you work out to give you a little extra energy. After the 5 days is up I want you to also take a diuretic. This will pull all the extra water off of you that you built up. A 72 hour diuretic pill will work best. I wouldn’t mix both the diet pill and diuretic together though. Take the diuretic at the end of your 7 day crash diet for three days. This will be when you will notice how much weight you have lost. After you have stopped taking the diuretic you can start back up on the diet pill. I have lost as much as 14 lbs doing this. Some people say a one week crash diet is not healthy, but I say it’s better than nothing, and at least my body looks a little better when I go to the beach.
