How to lose up to 20 lbs in 30 days:
- The Dreaded Weigh In
First, you need to weigh yourself. Many of us are terrified of stepping on the scale. It’s important to know where you stand. You have to know you are so you can know where you are headed and track your progress.
- Burn 500 calories a day
Burning 500 calories daily will equal 1 lb a week. You must burn more calories than you consume. Myfitnesspal.com is my favorite calorie tracker. The calorie deficit is already factored in when you set your goal. It’s a simple way to keep a food journal.
Drink half your weight in ounces of water. Cut out sugary drinks, opt for coffee and green teas. Add lemon to water to help flush out water weight.
- Nothing white
I heard 50 Cent refer to it as the Black Panther diet. Don’t eat anything white. To include bread, pasta, potatoes, rice, refined sugar. The supplement. L-glutamine reduces sugar cravings.
- Limit your consumption of starchy fruit. Bananas, pineapples, grapes.
- Eat 5-6 small meals to suppress hunger and cravings.
- Take a multivitamin to make up for the calories you’re cutting. Many of us are deficient in essential vitamins and nutrients. I suggest adding B complex for energy and metabolism.
