Loss 5 Pounds by this weekend

Step 1. Drink More Water.Drink water three times a day before meals.
Water also keeps you energized, so you’ll have the vigor needed to burn additional calories in the gym, on the tennis court, or wherever the day takes you. “Even being slightly dehydrated can lead to feeling fatigued,”.

Step 2. Say No to a Side of Fries or Potato Chips.
Replace these greasy sides with fresh veggies to save yourself hundreds of calories in a week.

Step 3. Cut Down on Added Sugars.
Eliminating added sugars could save you thousands of calories in a week. Other offenders included cookies, cakes, doughnuts, and dairy desserts. To trim hundreds of empty calories from your daily diet, check nutrition labels. “Look for anything that ends in the letters "ose,” the biochemical ending for sugars, such as sucrose, dextrose, fructose, and maltose, and the word syrup,”. If it’s sweetened, skip it.

Step 4. Watch and Avoid Hidden Calories.
Learn appropriate portions for common foods and skip calorie-laden condiments and dressings.

Step 5. Move More
Move it to lose it!!! Remember this mantra. Not all calories are lost at the kitchen table. Daily physical activity chips away at unwanted pounds.
“Choose an activity that you enjoy, whether it’s yard work, pole dancing, Zumba, or Pilates—anything that gets your body going.”
Integrate these activities into your weekly routine.

  1. Very well said. You have provided the most simplest but informative and helpful ways about weight loss. I really learned a lot. Reduce offers best diet plan to lose weight faster that fits perfectly in your regular lifestyle without too much hassle.

  2. An awesome diet plan, Well i have following one diet plan suggested by online dietitian eVaidya. I have developed habit of eating apple, eggs, nuts, whole grains, soups, drinking green tea etc. These above mentioned foods are really great for weight loss. A low-carb diet consists of foods that contain the best carbohydrates. Low-carb diet includes vegetables, fruits, whole grains etc. They contain lots of fibre. They take lots of time to break down into glucose. They provide the body with nutrients along with calories. Hence they are good for the health. So when people consume a diet less in carbohydrate can lose weight.
