We have all had times in our lives when we needed to lose a few pounds quickly. Whether it's just in time for your high school reunion, your wedding, a hot date, or a vacation on the beach, sometimes we just need a kick start to our weight loss regimen to reach our reduction goals fast. But don't be taken in by fad diets or supplements that promise the impossible. If you want to get rid of a few extra pounds, try these quick, effective and safe methods.
Many people find that by fasting for as short a period as one day, their body's metabolism seems to speed up while the stomach shrinks and that makes it easier to lose weight via a sensible diet in the following days.
Back in the old days, it was common for dieters to go for days with nothing but a few drinks of unflavored water. Today we know that it is not necessary. As long as you sip on clear liquids, there is no reason you can't provide a bit of fuel for your body in the form of a hot lemon toddy with honey, herbal tea, vegetable broth or chicken stock - and that makes it easier to get through a 24-hour cleanse. Dr. Oz has a 3-day cleanse program that allows you to eat quinoa for breakfast and soup for lunch and that is another option for a completely safe way to cleanse your body.
Whole Foods Diet
Often referred to as the Paleo Diet, a whole foods approach to eating allows you to lose weight naturally. The key is in eating foods that are as close to possible as their natural state. That means focusing on fruits, veggies, nuts and whole grains. You don't have to follow a strictly vegetarian or even vegan diet, but let's face it - it is difficult, if not impossible, to eat animal fats, meat and dairy products in their natural state because most of them are subject to some form of processing before they get to the supermarket shelf.
Besides, we need far less protein on a daily basis than we've been led to believe. Nuts, seeds and grains are excellent, low-fat sources of protein sufficient to fuel even a bodybuilder's daily workout regimen.
A completely safe way to lose several pounds in as little as an hour is to use the power of Far Infrared Ray (FIR) technology. The application of a body wrap that utilizes FIR technology in a salon is easy, efficient and quick; in just one lunch hour you'll see dramatic effects.
FIR works by heating the molecules in your body which, in turn, make you sweat. As you sweat, all manner of noxious toxins are released from your body. The organs responsible for producing sweat are doing hard work and this burns calories. Rather than making your body's fat melt away, Far Infrared Rays break it down into fatty acids your muscles use for energy.
If you've got a few pounds that need to come off now, start with a 24-hour cleanse, then graduate to a sensible diet of whole foods. Use just one lunch hour to treat yourself to a FIR technology body wrap at your local tanning salon (with the added bonus of relaxing your muscles, alleviating joint pain and reducing the appearance of cellulite) and you'll be sure to lose weight quickly but safely.
You can lose weight and relieve muscles, joint aches and pains over your lunch hour! Just one 60-minute session in a salon provides the healing relief and therapeutic cellulite melting properties of Far Infrared Technology. Find out for yourself how great it feels to be wrapped in warmth and walk away looking and feeling better. Call 1-888-5FIT-NOW to find a salon near you.
