If you desire to lose 10 pounds only in a week, you are required to burn 3500 to 4000 calories each day. You can achieve losing that kind of calories if you modify your activities and most important is your diet. By following 800 or 1000 calorie diet will make losing weight possible. But this kind of diet is not recommended to be for long term. There are so many crash diets promising you to help you lose weight in just a short period of time. But as we all know majority of this kind of diet is not healthy and might put your body at risk for many diseases or health problems.
Do not go for any popular diets because they are not everlasting. To achieve your goal, your motto should be “Eat Less and Exercise More”. Set a realistic goal and do not forget your motto to help you achieve your desired goal.
Do not starve
When you want to lose weight, never attempt on fasting or starving yourself. When starving, you just increase or amplify the temptation to eat more and in order to quench your hunger you will end up eating foods that are not healthy for our body. Not just that, starving yourself will also make your body weak and unhealthy. Your body will keep more space for the next meal and the metabolism of your body slows down if you will skip breakfast. You might lose 10 pounds when starving but for sure you will gain 25 pounds at the long run. This is the fact behind crash diets.
Drink plenty of water
Drinking at least eight glasses of water everyday is recommended. Before having your meal you can drink at least a glass of water. It will help you eat less because you feel full of the water you drink. Most often when you feel hungry, it is because you feel thirsty. In order to stop hunger, drink plenty of water and never drink caffeinated drinks or soft drinks. In addition, do not confuse yourself that when you feel hungry you are just thirsty.
