Unexpected things happen: surprise vacation, old friend’s wedding, marriage proposal. So how do we clean our skin and get in shape quickly? It seems impossible …
Do not worry! We have compiled some tips on what you can do when you don’t have much time.
2 Weeks. Lose Weight.
You can lose a few pounds in 2 weeks if you reduce your caloric intake to 1,000-1,100 kcal per day. To do this, supplement your diet with vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and low-fat fish and meat.
Due to limited energy intake, stored fats will be burned. Be sure to drink at least half a gallon (2 liters) of water a day; this is rule #1 for anyone looking to lose weight.
1 Week. Tighten The Waist And Improve Skin Condition.
Losing weight in 7 days is possible with 3 types of food: citrus, pineapples, and protein. Citrus fruits contain large amounts of fruit acids, which dissolve fats and remove them from the body.
In addition, vitamin-rich fruits, especially rich in vitamin C, will improve your immunity, skin condition, and general well-being.
Pineapple is recognized as one of the best weight loss products thanks to bromelain, which effectively breaks down fats.
Proteins are the building blocks of our body and provide energy. For a complete result, you need to forget about carbohydrates and fats during those 7 days.
3 Days. Tighten Your Belly.
Several options can help you remove excess fat from the abdominal area. The first: drink 7 ounces (200 ml) of carrot and apple juice (1: 1) 6 times a day. In addition to being low in calories, these products also saturate the body with vitamins, beta-carotene, and pectin.
The second option: for breakfast and lunch, prepare a mixture of 1 boiled egg, 1 tablespoon of sour cream, and 1 grated carrot. For dinner, just have unsweetened green tea.
2 Days. Cleanse Your Body.
If you only have a few days, little tricks to cleanse your body will come in handy. They work thanks to the same bromelain that breaks down fats.
For breakfast, have a pineapple, which you can complement with citrus juice or coffee without sugar, but with lemon.
During the day, replace your usual drinks with a glass of hot water with mint and lemon. Lunch should consist of beets, carrots, and cabbage and also some large plums, if you like.
You should also have a glass of lemon water and perhaps some dried apricots before bed.
1 Day. Remove Excess Water.
When time can be measured in hours, vegetables and bran will save you. The latter serves as an “internal scrub” for our intestines, so 5-6 tablespoons of bran with skimmed yogurt in the morning will be very useful for your body.
Fry with 1 tablespoon of olive oil or boil 1.5 kg of frozen vegetables. Divide into 5-6 servings and eat at regular intervals. These measures will help you remove excess water. This is the best thing to do because shedding the fat takes much longer.
Remember that these tips are only valid for the time periods mentioned! Eating too many acidic foods on an empty stomach or prolonged low calorie intake is dangerous.
Losing weight is a gradual process and these tips are simply emergency measures. Love yourself and enjoy the celebrations!
