Posted Nov 12 2008 3:34am 6 Comments

Here’s how to lose 5 pounds in a week without harsh diets or crazy long workouts. Once you see how this is outlined, you’ll realize this won’t be that hard. Read this now if you want an easy alternative for quick weight loss.

How to Lose 5 pounds in a week.

1. Be a 6 meal man - eat 3 main meals plus 3 snacks, but in controlled portions. Not only will this keep your fueled up all day, it keep the bad cravings away. Your metabolism is a fire, you don’t throw all the logs on at once if you want it to burn all day.

SIDEBAR Tip on how to lose 5 pounds in a week ==> With each meal, your serving plate should consist mostly of FIBER like veggies and fruits, at least half the plate - and the rest protein and lean fat…skinless chicken and steamed fish.


There is a class of food which effectively uses more calories in the process of digestion than is contained in the food itself. These are known as negative calorie foods. They have few calories, are low in fat and often are a good source of fiber. There are many benefits to be gained by including them in a weight loss plan. For instance, the fiber will help you to feel full and so helps to curb appetite. As well, because these foods use up more energy than they supply, the body calls upon its reserves of fat to convert into energy, and this reduces fat and weight.

Many fruits and vegetables may be considered negative calorie foods. For instance:

Vegetables: Asparagus, Beets, Broccoli, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Celery, Fennel, lettuce, Leek, Marrow, Peppers, Tomato, and Turnips.

NOT starchy carbohydrates, such as potatoes and rice.

Fruits: Apples, Apricot, Cantaloupe, GrapeFruit, Lemon, Mandarin, Peaches, Plums, Raspberries, Rhubarb, Strawberry, tangerine, and Watermelon.

Also, foods that are high in Omega-3 oils, such as sardines, mackerel, and salmon.

3. Drink water

wanna lose 5 pounds in a week? Then drink more water. Water is quite possibly the single most important catalyst in losing weight and keeping it off.

Water acts as an appetite suppressant by keeping your stomach full and fending off dehydration which can lead to false cravings/hunger.

Water also helps your body metabolize stored fat by helping the kidneys flush out waste. When you don’t drink enough water the liver which works to provide stored fat for energy helps the kidneys eliminate waste and becomes less effective at metabolizing fat.

Drinking water ice cold burns about 62 calories a day. Your body has to work to raise that waters temperature to your body’s temperature. This equals around 430 calories per week.

4. Exercise - You don’t need to spend the rest of your life at the gym. 15-20 minutes of cardio for 2-3 times in a week is enough for you to lose 5 pounds. Muscle burns fat much faster! Use light weight dumbbells, and you will see results quickly.

5. Don’t Rush, be patient.

the hardest part of weight loss is patience. In today’s world, if we need something, we always want it with immediate effect-so urgently. The thinking is always here is my money let me have my product or food. We seem to have the “instant gratification” attitude. We want instant success in everything we do and want all out needs to be fulfilled without delay. We can break this habit through weight loss and healthy living. Weight loss and healthy living required lots of hard work and planning in order to see a tangible result. Plan your exercise routine and be patient, it may take longer than you expected but the good news is that it will be gone forever. It is a little short term pain for a long lasting long term success.

Follow this simple tips and you would lose 5 pounds in a week.
