There are many available diets to lose weight fast. This article will give some information about those diets, which people follow in order to lose weight in a short period of time.
There are hundreds of diets to lose weight fast, and it is simply not possible to keep following each one of them. Some of them make tall claims of losing some unreasonable amount of pounds in three to ten days. But not all of them work. Dieting is a good way to drop a few pounds when you need to fit into your wedding dress or have a very important event to attend. However, these quick weight loss regimes should not be followed for long periods of time, as they can make you ill. Some of them do work effectively (according to sources), and they are listed below.
One of the best diets to lose weight fast is the 3 day or the tuna diet. It lasts for only three days, and during those days, you can only eat foods in portions that are approved. The plan is given below.
|Day 1||1 Cup black tea or coffee, 1 toast with peanut butter, ½ a grapefruit||150 g steamed tuna steak, 1 cup black tea or coffee||100 g steamed chicken breast, ½ cup steamed green beans, 1 apple, 1 carrot, 100 ml vanilla ice cream|
|Day 2||1 cup black tea or coffee, 1 soft-boiled egg, 1 toast, 1 banana||200 g pan-fried tuna steak, 5 saltine crackers, 1 cup black tea or coffee||1 small grilled beef steak, 1 steamed carrot, 1 banana, ½ cup steamed broccoli, 50 ml vanilla ice cream|
|Day 3||1 cup black tea or coffee, 5 saltine crackers, 1 cheese slice, 1 small apple||1 omelet, 1 toast, 1 cup black tea or coffee||200 g tuna fillet, ½ cup steamed baby carrot, ½ cup steamed broccoli florets, 1 melon wedge, 50 ml vanilla ice cream|
This plan works, because it has very less calories in each meal. However, the daily intake of calories is around 1000, and this might make some people feel tired and hungry all the time.
A plan that is quite tough to follow is the lemonade diet. It is a liquid diet that claims that you can lose 10 to 20 pounds during a period of 10 days. Here, you have to drink lemonade and water the whole day, and no solid food is allowed. You also need to drink a salt water flush in the morning and a herbal laxative tea at night. It is a detox regimen that helps the body to get rid of all toxins and waste materials, which leads to weight loss. It is quite rigorous, and should not be done by people who are hypoglycemic, as it will lead to dizziness and decrease in blood sugar levels.
The cabbage soup diet is one of the best ones to lose weight. It is a 7 day plan, and during these seven days, you can have cabbage soup along with some limited foods. When you are on this plan, you can have as much cabbage soup as you like, and all fruits and vegetables that are not high in sugar. Starchy vegetables, like potato and sweet potato are not allowed to be eaten. You can also have salads made with fresh green leafy vegetables without any high calories and creamy dressing. Unsweetened fruit and vegetable juices along with stir fried vegetables cooked in olive oil can also be consumed.
All these plans can help you to lose some extra pounds quickly, but they should not be followed for a long time. Other plans for fast weight loss, which are also effective, are grapefruit, scarsdale, Hollywood, and the South Beach diet. If losing weight is a long-term goal for you, then the best way to do it would be to go on a healthy diet along with a proper exercise regimen. This will not only help you to lose weight, but also ensure that you do not regain the weight back.
