I know the exact way to maintain a healthy weight in the long run – no fad diets, but a conscious lifestyle change to eat healther and incorporate exercise into your life. I am fully on board with that and I plan on changing my lifestyle over the next year and a half to hopefully become slimmer, more energetic, lower my cholesterol, and have a healthier life.
BUT. We all know sometimes we have big events coming up that we can’t look like beached whales for, and the “slow and steady” lifestyle change won’t do much in 3.5 weeks.
How do you lose a slightly higher amount of weight (more than the normal 1-2 pounds per week) in that time frame without going completely into starvation mode?
I know whatever weight I lose in the next 3-4 weeks will most likely come back, will probably be water weight, etc…. which I am okay with because as I said, after this I will be doing the slow ‘n steady route. But something has just come up that I really need to try my hardest to slim down/de-bloat for in just over three weeks.
When you need to drop a few pounds quickly, look a little less bloated, what do you do? I know the healthy way, you could lose about 6 pounds. Is it too much to try and lose 10?
