The Roadmap Of How To Lose Weight In A Week

Updated on December 3, 2013

Why One Week?

We live in a speedy era. I think this is a main reason for people who ask me about how to lose weight in a week. Although I don’t agree with them but I have many ways that help them to lose weight in just one week.

But we have to put in mind that you will not lose a “BIG” amount of grams during in this week. I mean in healthy way, there is no healthy way to lose a big amount of your excess of grams in just 1 week.

You may meet someone who promises you to lose 10 pounds in just one week. I don’t know him or his method, but I can certainly say: There is no Weight Loss Program which can safely reduce your weight in 1 week than 1500 gm.

My previous words don’t refer to a particular diet system or weight loss program; I mean any program which may promise that you will lose over than 1500 gm in natural way in just 1 week. This is my 6 years experience and you can add more to this topic to me and I appreciate any converse information for this opinion.

So, What I Meant About This Title?

The main idea of “How to Lose Weight in a Week” is changing bad habits you used to do. After changing these habits you will touch the difference in one week.

If you put your targeted weight now and draw

How To Lose Weight In A Week – (0) Level

We will start a week before. I called this week “Watching Week”. What should you do in this week?

Simply, nothing.

I mean my word. You should do nothing about losing weight.

The only thing which I want to do is jotting down everything you put in your mouth and that’s it.

The main idea in watching week is doing a self-judge for you.

Writing what you eat daily has 2 benefits:

1. You will find out the food mess you live.

2. It is the start point of knowing how to lose weight in a week.

Watching Table

It is a nice table and I’m sure that you will like it so much. Watching table is a form which you will record everything you put in your mouth. It will help you to see the food mess you live.

It will be like follow:

As you noticed in watching table, you have to jot down what you eat every day. Jot down everything in this week, even snacks and drinks between meals.

Watching table helps you to know what your food behavior is. You will discover a lot of interesting things about yourself by it, and you will be more ready to start the next week.

Watching table is an impartial tool to discover yourself and weigh the size of your problem in losing weight. I don’t want to add that you have to be honest with yourself and don’t forget anything even water you drink.

Your Table should be a something like this one I put in photo and in this form.

2 slices of toast + cup of coffee
2 pieces of donuts
Pizza (medium size) + Pepsi
1 piece of chocolate (100 gm)
1 sandwich of cheese
1 cup of mango juice

What should you find and discover in the Watching Week?

Often, you will see the following items:

  • Main meals (like the main course and breakfast)
  • Snacks (what you eat between meals at work and home)
  • Unhealthy addictions (I mean cola, chocolate, donuts, …etc)
  • Invitations (at work, outdoor with family, by a friend, ….etc)
  • A big mess in meals’ time.

Am I right?

I think that I’m 80 – 100% right.

Ok, let’s show you how to deal with this list to know how to lose weight in a week.

How To Lose Weight In A Week – (I) Level

After watching yourself and knowing well the quantity you eat, you will start by the following steps:

First: You have to stop the following:

  • Unhealthy addictions.
  • Invitations.

If you check the previous, you will find out that they are not important for your body. On the contrary, they may harm it.

Additions are low in nutrition value and high in calories, plus they don’t give you the feeling of satiety, because they are just snacks. Train yourself by stopping these items in one week. I have simple tips for you to stop snacks, but you should commit with:

  • Once you decide to take/buy a snack, drink a big cup of water.
  • Save the money you spend in snacks and put it in a special box. Check this box at the end of the month and you will discover a surprise.
  • Learn how to say “No” for food invitations especially for unhealthy foods and snacks.
  • Learn more about preparing healthy snacks and use it instead of unhealthy ones.

Stop unhealthy addition and apologize for the invitations. Don’t be shy. It is your health.

Second: Make the following replacements:

  • Replace snacks with fresh fruits (Recommended).
  • Replace soda and wine with fresh juice and water.
  • Replace saturated fats in your cooking and food with healthy oils like olive and canola oils.
  • Replace coffee and tea with green tea.

Third: Do the following actions in your life:

  • Fix meals’ time as much as you can. Even if you are in the work, you can assign your meal’s time in the time of break.
  • Do some exercises for 30 minutes a day. You can try walking or jogging. If you have much time, I recommend participating in a gym.
  • Choose the favorite fat burner of foods for yourself and take it in daily basis. I highly recommend grapefruit or choose preferable for you.

Forth: Draw your new table:

It is the time of new sheet and new table. Draw a new one and fill it with all of your details after removing bad habits and gaining new healthy habits.

At the end of this week you will appreciate your efforts when you see the difference between your input data this week and previous one.

How To Lose Weight In A Week – (II) Level

The third week, you are going to choose the suitable weight loss program to apply (whatever it is) and measure your performance. The best benefit of this table is watching your commitment and judge well.

Of course I recommend some types of diet system and weight loss programs but I want to focus on unique thing about losing weight: Watching.

We lost a lot of our positive activities because of this word: Self-Watching. This will help you in many sides of your life especially the side of self-improvement. (Health, memory, communication skills, and so).

Draw your own table and commit with. It will be an interesting experience.

Last Words (Very Important)

  • Be honest with yourself in recording everything, even the total quantity of water you drink.
  • Don’t compare yourself with others. Don’t do it completely. People are not like each other. Each body has his own rules. The psychological sides of losing weight are very important. So, keep motivating yourself by imagining the brilliant results of the new body and health. This will be a good catalyst for you.
  • Apply this idea with your friends who want to lose weight. Make it social and get the encouragement of your friends and do the same for them.

As I mentioned above, I’m don’t like to focus on how to lose weight in a week but I can promise you that you will lose 500 – 1500 gm every week if you commit with these tips.
