Yes, it is possible that someone can lose weight in that time period, it really depends on your metabolism and loads of other factors, including physical activity and body composition, all of which are entirely unique to you. Weight loss ultimately comes back to the concept of calories in and calories out. Eat less than you burn and you’ll lose weight. The diet itself can trick you into thinking that this eating style is working, when really you might gain back what you lost as soon as you eat normally again!
MORE VEGGIES, ALWAYS
As simple as that. If you think about making any meal mostly veggies (at least 50% of anything that you’re having), you’re on the right track to better health and weight loss. Veggies are best eaten during lunch and dinner.
BETTER BREAKFAST, A MUST
All meals are important, but breakfast is what helps you start your day on the right track. The best, heartiest breakfasts are ones that will fill you up, keep you satisfied, and stave off cravings later in the day. Aim to eat anywhere between 400 and 500 calories for your morning meal. Yes that is a lot but worth it! (Make sure it is a healthy homemade breakfast, no oily food!)
LIMIT, SALT INTAKE
Since salt is a preservative, packaged and processed foods are often high in sodium. When it comes by buying snacks, choose a “low sodium” product. Healthy snacking for sure not junk foods.
MORE CAFFEINE, PLEASE
Start your day with a cup of coffee without sugar and milk. Caffeine is a natural diuretic and an excellent source of antioxidants, which protect your cells from damage. Not much of a coffee drinker? Tea is also a natural diuretic, and types of herbal tea such as dandelion or fennel root can also lend a hand. Green tea helps in losing weight with a mix of lemon why not?
SAY NO TO, SUGARY DRINKS
Drinking a juice or caramel / vanilla coffee drinks just isn’t as satisfying as eating a bowl of salad. So monitor your intake of juice, soda, sweetened / flavoured coffee and tea, and also no alcoholic beverages. (Fact : Alcohol may suppress the metabolism of fat, making it tougher for you to burn those calories)
EAT SPICY FOODS, YES
Because eating spicy food can increase your body’s release of stress hormones such as adrenaline, which can speed up your ability to burn calories. Add on chili, bird eye chili, pepper, jalapeno or hot sauce on your dish.
EAT AND DRINK, H20
You certainly need to drink plenty of water to help avoid bloating (3 liters per day), you can also consume high-water content foods. Reach for cucumbers, tomatoes, watermelon, grapes, celery, pineapple, and any berries. All of which contain diuretic properties that will also help you stay full due to their higher fiber content. Say no to high calorie fruits like Durian and Mango.
GO TO BED, EARLY
Getting less than 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night can slow down your metabolism. Plus, when you’re awake for longer, you’re naturally more likely to snack on midnight munchies. So do not sleep late!
