So you want to lose weight in one week. Going on a trip? Have a concert next week? Big interview coming up? Can’t fit in your Wedding dress?
If you are like most Americans you don’t want to spend one hour a day in the gym and follow a strict boring diet. Ok, I understand. But each one of us is different, some are more over weight then others. And regardless the more overweight you are the more weight you better lose for your good health and your family’s future.
The ideas I am about to share with you are simple but effective. But you must take action. These ideas are small changes but will get you better weight loss. And you can feel comfortable doing them.
1. Increase Fiber Intake. Eat a can of black beans everyday.
The American diet is low in fiber. The average American gets only 9-10 grams of fiber a day. The US government recommends 25 grams and yes they are wrong. We need more fiber for our bodies to expel all of our intestial waste. We need some 40 grams of fiber a day.
The best way to increase your daily fiber intake is to eat a can of black beans everyday. You don’t have to eat all of them at one meal. Spreading them out over the whole day is better anyway. There are 25 grams of fiber in one can of black beans. With the increased fiber in your diet you will need to drink more water.
2. Eat 3 Apples or 3 Bananas a Day.
This is continuation of adding additional fiber to your diet. Remember we are looking for 40 grams of fiber a day. Apples and bananas have about 5 grams of fiber each. So the addition of the 3 pieces of fruit brings us up to the 40 grams of fiber a day.
This increase in fiber will clean your intestinal tract. It is key to both short term and long term weight lose. Your intestial tract most likely has 5 to 10 pounds of solid waste and fetal matter stuck to the walls of the intestines. If you are more than 25 pounds overweight there is more material adhering. All of the fiber will push out the build up of solid waste and fetal matter. Acting as a colon cleanse. You lose the 5 to 10 pounds of solid waste and make future weight lose easier.
How about that! Two small adjustments, not a exhaustive diet make over and you could lose 5-10 pounds in one week. Adding additional water to your diet will help reduce retained water in your body. Resulting in additional weight loss. Possibly giving you a much bigger weight loss for the week.
