How to lose weight soon?

how can I lose 20pounds or less in 3to 4 wks

Answer #1

Go on a low carb diet. Eat 20 grams of carbs/day. Google phase 1 of Atkins and follow that. I did it and lost a lot of weight. Probably 40ish pounds in about 2 months.

Answer #3

It has been shown in studies that most adults need an hour to an hour and a half a day of excersize. The best excersize is running (not jogging, running) or hard, continous swimming. If you run for at least an hour and a half, non-stop or powewalk for 2 to 2.5 hours, you can burn at LEAST 1000 calories, and after, your body will continue to burn calories at the same rate. If you are currently doing no excersize at all, it is a good idea to start with powerwalking, just because it can help you build up endurance. Don’t go on a diet (those usually end up in failure), and the running will help teach your body when it is full, so you do not over-eat. It is a good idea, when you are running or powerwalking to drink a sport-type beverage, to replace lost salt, which can be very dangerous. You could even go with a friend or a group, so that you don’t lose interest or get discouraged. If you do this at least 5 times a week, you will not only lose the weight, but will be able to keep it off, because you are not denying yourself anything you want, unlike dieting, and will have a more sexy body. Good luck. :)

Answer #5

It is very unhealthy to even attempt this.

You lose weight by adapting a healthy diet and exercise regime.

Try and set a target for a couple of pounds per week.

When you have lost the weight, you need to adapt your eating habits permantly to keep the weight off.

day 1: All fruits, except BANANAS. Your first day will consist of all the fruit you want. Cantaloupes and watermelons are lower in calories than most fruit. Eat only your soup and fuit the first day. For drinks - unsweetened teas, cranberry juices, and water. day 2: All vegetables. Eat until you are stuffed with fresh, raw, or cooked veggies of your choice. Try to eat leafy freen ceffies and stay away from dry veans, peas and corn. Eat all the veggies you want along with your soup. At dinner reward yourself with a big baked potato with no butter. Do not eat fruit. Day 3: Mix day 1 and day 2. Eat all the soup, fruit, and veggies you want. No baked potato. Day 4: Bananas and skim milk. Eat as many as 8 bananas and drink as many glasses of skim milk on this day, along with your soup. your body will need the potassium, carbohydrates, protein and calcium to lessen your cravings for sweets. (Make banana shakes- freeze banana slices, add the skim milk and blend) Day 5: Beef and Tomatoes. 10 to 20 ounces of beef and up to 6 fresh tomatoes. Drink at least 5 to 8 glasses of water this day to wash the uric acid from your body. Eat your soup at least once on this day. Day 6: Beef and veggies. Eat to your hearts content of beef and veggies this day. You can have 2 to 3 steaks if you like, with leafy green veggies. NO BAKED POTATO. Eat your soup at least once on this day.

At the end of they 7th day, if you have not cheated on this diet, you will have lost 10 to 17 pounds. if you have lost more than 15 pounds than go off of the diet for 2 to 3 days before you start again. go off the diet for at least 24 hours before the intake of alcohol.
