There are times when you want to look your best and really show off what you got. Maybe you just want to feel better about yourself and not have people look at you thinking what happened? or how did she put on so much weight?
These are the thoughts that come around when have a special occasion or event you need to get ready for.
These can be very stressful times. You have losing weight for a wedding whether you’re in it or not. Maybe losing weight for a hot date, a family reunion, graduation, a big night on the town, you name it.
There is a lot of pressure to look good and typically you probably waited until the last second to try and slim down. So what can you realistically do?
Did You Give Yourself Some Time?
If you waited until your event was two or one week away, you won’t be able to do anything. Just get over the fact that you’re stuck. If you crash diet, that will only work against you as you will cause more bloat when you do party, drink, or eat.
The optimal amount of time to make some changes are at the very least one month… and the more time you have the better and easier this gets.
The Healthy Way To Lose Weight Quickly
When it comes to losing weight fast, I like to only talk about doing it the healthy way. There is no point in trying to lose weight by crash dieting, fat burning pills, and things like that. All of those will only come back to bite you in the butt and make you feel horrible, irritable, and not yourself.
It’s not worth it.
To lose weight fast and healthy, you have to be very strict with yourself. This means strict with your workouts and strict with you nutrition especially. I mean really strict. That is the only way you’ll ever see any results in your shorter time frame.
So ask yourself now… am I prepared to make sacrifices to lose weight quickly, safely, and come out still healthy?
How Workouts Will Help You Lose Weight Fast
When it comes to working out, it’s used more for stress relief and building a good habit while you’re being very strict on yourself.
Exercising is required to burn fat and lose weight, but in a short amount of time, it’s 99% nutrition. However, wouldn’t it be great if by the time of your event, you were in the habit of working out and it was just part of your life?
You only need to workout three times a week from anywhere between 15 to 45 minutes. That is one reason why I created Fit Women’s Weekly. To give you these workouts and make this step extremely easy to handle. Plus you’ll know you’re doing the right workouts that produce real results.
How Nutrition Is The Key To Losing Weight Fast
For quick results that need to be had as fast as possible, everything will come down to what you’re eating.
If you want to change your body both in looks and in feel, all you need to do is this:
- Count your calories at least every other day.
- Accurately estimate the number of calories you are burning each day.
- Run a small daily calorie deficit of 250 to 300 calories. (This is where exercise helps a lot).
- Cut out the really bad foods immediately.
This is a lot to take on at first, but if you can do this, you will find that you slim down to your ideal weight very fast. In two months, you can lose well over 30 pounds if you really need to.
You have to run the calorie deficit to make sure you force your body to use fat for fuel. This is where exercise really helps. Exercise does two things that ensure success here:
- It maintains lean muscle mass so you don’t lose it and lower your metabolism on a base level.
- It helps to increase your calorie burn creating more of a deficit and a concentration on excess fat burning.
Finally, when you cut out the bad foods, you will really accelerate your results. Things to cut out are:
- Alcohol. If you drink, cutting this out will produce amazing results.
- Processed foods. These are poison for your body.
- Sugar. Get rid of this and things happen!
There is more and I am sure you know what they are in your own diet. However, when you track your calories, you are keeping a very detailed food diary and you’ll know pretty immediately what you should and should not be eating.
That Is How You Lose Weight For A Special Occasion
That’s how you do it. It’s tough but only because you are on a short time frame and you need to see results quickly.
If you are just trying to burn fat to get healthy, you can implement things slower and make sure that they really take hold. I’ll talk more in future articles about why you don’t want to lose weight fast, or at least why it can be dangerous.
