How You Can Lose 20 Pounds In 20 Days Without Starving And Frustration
If your goal is to lose weight and exercise more, forget the highly restrictive diet and daily long intensive workouts. Research has shown that taking small steps — not giant leaps — is the best way to achieve long lasting results.
When you focus on just a couple of small changes at a time, you begin to fully adopt some healthy habits that last for a lifetime — rather than trying an all-or-nothing approach that more often than not fails because it’s too hard to keep up.
How you should start: Add only one or two of the small changes below a week to your regular routine. Once these healthy habits become second nature, they’ll benefit you for a lifetime.
1. Limit foods that have high fat content
Take note of the high-fat and high-calorie foods that are typically your favorite (my top five: cakes, chocolate bars, ice cream, potato chips, and fries) and gradually decrease the intake. If you’re eating six of these foods a week, try to go down to five. Each week, drop another until you’re at no more than one or two; at the same time, add to your plates more good-for-you choices like carrots, sweet potatoes, oranges, avocados and other fresh fruits and veggies.
2. Walk 5 minutes more a day
A recent research found that women who increased their daily activity levels by just a few minutes at a time were able to lose weight faster than women who just went on a diet . Your goal should be to do at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day (which can help burn off about 120 extra calories daily, or equivalent to 12½ pounds a year), but take it 5 minutes at a time — it doesn’t have to be all at once.
3. Eat without any distractions
Dining while watching tv can make you take in 40 percent more calories than usual, according to a recent study. And texting, driving, or any other distracting activity during a meal can also result in you consuming more food that you need. Make each meal something you put on a plate, and then sit down to finish it — and even if you’re eating by yourself.
4. Snack with healthy foods
Grazing between meals used to be a faux pas. But nutritionists now know that it’s better to satisfy a craving with healthy grub than ignore it and risk a junk-food binge later. The best picks are filling, protein-packed snacks — a stick of string cheese, a tablespoon of peanut butter on a piece of fruit, or my favourite — a bowl of edamame.
5. Build your muscles
Doing 5 minutes each of push-ups, lunges, and squats (in 30-second intervals) will help build and maintain muscle mass. The more muscle you have, the higher your metabolism will be, so you’ll torch more calories as you go about your day.
One last thing… you should try this strange morning ritual that burns up to 2 pounds of belly fat per day…
“All this by just your strange ritual?” I asked.
I met an old friend for lunch last year and I was super impressed with how she lost 72 pounds in 3 months.
She said, “It’s not so much the ritual but more about how it releases fat-blasting molecules that signal your brain and body to burn off pounds and inches of trapped fat quickly and naturally.”
Even though I was skeptical, I’ve been struggling with my weight over the last few years, so I gave it a shot and watched the same video she did.
Well, it’s only a couple weeks later and you know what they say about how “you can’t transform your body overnight”…
They’re right — it actually took me 20 days to lose 20 pounds.
Now it’s my girlfriends asking ME what I’M doing differently
