If diets aren't your thing, we have a simple plan for you to shed (some of) your excess fat in just seven days
Losing weight, like everything else, is easy if you know how. Most of us start a diet with enthusiasm and enthusiasm, but after a few days we abandon it. The reason? It took a long time to see the results of the regimen on the body and on the scale.
Striving to lose weight and not perceiving that your sacrifice pays off is pretty daunting. Therefore, reader, we are going to propose a crash plan so that you are aware of the results in just one week.
How to lose two kilos in a week
It is a kind of express diet that will allow you to get rid of those two kilos that you have taken and that make you do not close your pants or do not button your shirt.
The first thing you should do is be clear about what to eat and at what time. And, above all, do not eat much of the allowed foods.
To lose weight quickly and in just one week you have to consume about 800-1,000 calories a day.
To lose weight fast and in just one week you have to consume 800-1,000 calories a day, at most. It is little, but being a crash plan of only a few days will not put your health at risk.
You also have to drink a lot of water. Besides filling you up, it’s calorie-free and will keep you hydrated.
What should you eat
To lose two kilos in a week you have to eat foods with negative calories, so you will lose weight while you eat. Most are fruits and vegetables, such as tomatoes, grapefruit, carrots, cucumbers, apples, or zucchini.
You should accompany these vegetables, vegetables and fruits with meals with a high protein load, which will make you lose weight at a faster rate than if you ate other types of foods, such as carbohydrates or fats.
You can eat all the vegetables you want, as they have negative calories
Additionally, a higher protein intake increases the production of satiety hormones, and at the same time reduces the levels of the hunger hormone, ghrelin.
The foods with a high protein load that you have to eat this week are the following:
· Meats: chicken, turkey, lean meat, pork, etc.
· Fish: salmon, sardines, cod, trout, etc.
· Eggs: all types but watch out for the yolks (no more than three a week).
What you should not eat
You should completely forget about carbohydrates, since in addition to getting fat, they make you retain fluids and cause bloating. Breads, whole cereals, pasta, rice, cookies and buns, candies, gummies ... and, of course, anything with added sugar should be avoided at all costs.
You should also not drink soft drinks, neither in their normal versions nor 'light' or 'zero'. In these seven days you can hydrate with water, teas or coffee.
You should completely forget about carbohydrates, which can also reduce your weight in water
The salt and dressings are also prohibited because they retain fluid, which makes you be more bloated than usual. To lose weight, you should limit your sodium intake to one teaspoon or less per day.
As for olive oil, and although you can continue using it in your kitchen and your diet, you must limit its consumption during this week, since it is loaded with fats (good, but fats), as we already told you in Vozpópuli . The same goes for dairy, which is not prohibited but if you can avoid it, the better.
What time do you have to eat to lose weight?
Once we know what can and cannot be eaten this week, let's move on to the other point in the equation: when to do it.
The best thing is that you eat five meals a day, so you will avoid having anxiety about eating little and you will not sin with carbohydrates that do not do you good at this time of your life. Between feedings, three or four hours should pass, and thus avoid low blood sugar.
The best thing is that you eat five meals a day, so you will avoid having anxiety about eating little and avoiding sin with carbohydrates
To give you an idea, this would be the perfect plan:
· Breakfast: 8 hours.
· Mid-morning: 11 am.
· Lunch: 14 hours.
· Snack: 17 hours.
· Dinner: 20 hours.
Watch out for dinner. The chrononutrition states that must invest about 75% of your calorie intake before 15 hours. That is, with a maximum of 1,000 calories a day, before the afternoon you must have consumed 700-850.
This leaves your dinner with about 250 calories, which you complete with two steaks of turkey or chicken (120), a generous salad of vegetables (100) and a fruit (50).
And this is it, reader. We encourage you to try it. We do it when we have spent the 'weekend' and it works great. We all have stress in our day-to-day lives – a flat tire in the middle of rush hour, a looming deadline at work – that can cause a temporary spike in blood pressure. In most cases, once the stressful situation is resolved, your heart rate and blood pressure return to normal.
