How to lose up to 3 kilos in one weekLast updated on Nov 04, 2019, 02:06 pm
Whether you have a big occasion coming up or want to get in a better shape, sometimes you just want to get rid of the extra fat quickly.
And although it's not simple, it is possible. You just need to make the right choices.
Here are five simple tips to help you lose up to 3 kilos in one week.
Switch to a liquid breakfast
One handy way to cut down on your calorie consumption for the day is to switch from a heavy breakfast to a liquid-only meal in the morning.
Replace your first meal with a protein-based shake or Greek yogurt topped with fruits. These high-protein drinks will keep you full until lunchtime, thereby reducing unhealthy snacking.
This will drastically help reduce your total calorie intake.
Replace one meal
While fad diet gurus will keep on convincing you to skip meals, we don't suggest you to go that harsh on your body.
Instead, simply replace one meal of your day with a vegetable or salad-based option, that will keep you full, without pounding up too many calories.
Go for healthy vegetable soups or a salad loaded with leafy greens, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes etc.
Tip 3: Go easy on your dinner
Typically, our dinner consists of 600-800 kcal, while we don't need anything more than 300-500 kcal to end the day on a healthy note. So, go for a healthy yet lighter meal in the night to keep unwanted calories at bay.
Extend your break between meals; Walk more
Timing: Ideally, we should remain 10-12 hours without food overnight. You can further extend the break between meals by taking your (liquid) breakfast at around 8 AM, and finishing off with a light dinner at around 7 PM.
Walking: Aim to walk 10,000-12,000 steps every day of the week to facilitate your weight loss plans.
