How Much Weight Can I Lose in Five Weeks?

Question by Halen: How much weight can I lose in five weeks?
I want to lose as much weight as possible in five weeks, the healthy way. I’ve started my diet by only drinking water and mostly staying away from carbs. I feel by only drinking water I will lose quite a few pounds, because usually, being from the south, all I drink is sweet tea and never water. I eat very unhealthy usually and hardly exercise. This week starts my cheer practices, and I’ll be walking atleast a mile every day. I also start the B12 shot tomorrow. It’s some sort of vitamin that my doctor said my body is low on, and that this will help with weight loss. How much weight do you think I could lose? Any weight loss/diet tips?

10lbs. But it depends on you, your body and your weight.

Eat 6 meals a day, every 3-4 hours.

Keep your goal weight EVERYWHERE! (On your refrigerator, tables, counters, mirror, walls, notebooks, on your phone, in your fridge, anywhere you can think of.. It helps keep you motivated)

Everytime you go to get sweets, junk food or any fatty foods.. Remember why you’re avoiding them.

Get rid of all the junk food in your house

Eat ; fruits, vegetables, fish, lean meats, nuts & seeds

Do lots of cardio

Drink lots of water, along with lemon water and green tea (lemons and green tea help boost your metabolism and burn fat)

Find out how many calories you’re required to eat daily ;

Before you eat, drink water.. You could be mistaking thirst with hunger.

Work hard, because if you do.. You’ll see results pretty fast.

Find a buddy, if you have someone there to push you while you work out.. It helps and if you’re eating healthier with someone else.. They can keep you motivated.

Keep a food journal, it helps so that you’re not sugar coating what you eat(you’re being completely honest with yourself)

Keep in mind, it’s okay to set aside 1-2 days a week for cheat meals.. Just don’t go overboard

Chewing gum helps too, it keeps your mouth occupied (I’d suggest Extra gum, it’s only 5 calories per piece)

Have people around you that support you, not try to make you fail.

Keep weight loss quotes around the house, like.. ‘The more you sweat, the better you get’ ‘Nobody has ever drowned in their own sweat’ etc.

Don’t give up, no matter what.

Yoga helps with weight loss and it relieves stress.

Weight watchers works!

Stretching is important before & after you work out (you don’t want to get injured)
