Those looking to use a 4-day diet plan to lose 10 pounds will want to strategically plan out what they will be eating. Though these eating methods are not new, they haven’t been widely talked about for too long.
These techniques weren’t typically part of the “mainstream” diets that you would hear about. These were hidden and used by Hollywood for years. Why? Because they work. It used to be you had to pay trainers to teach you this. Weight loss like air, water, and electricity should be free and available to all sentient beings.
No diet that focuses solely on deprivation will be maintained for the long term.
People don’t want to deprive themselves, nor should they have to. Though watching your intake and trying to drop extra weight will take some sacrifices, those in search of a 4-day diet to lose weight fast should know that there can be a fair and tasty common ground.
A healthy 4-day diet plan should consist of these things. Water!(and plenty of it) Water needs to go through your system constantly. Water will help to keep things going smoothly throughout your system. Like weight loss, your body needs water for all it’s amazing functions.
Some people will also be concerned with retaining water weight. A suggestion… don’t, we will address these issues.
You will be releasing most of this through your urine. You will want to watch for clear urine all day to let yourself know that you are drinking enough water. Also adding extra salt can not only stunt your weight loss, but will work to retain water, so watch it.
I would also advise that you drink some green tea. Green tea not only speeds up your metabolism but fights free radicals and helps to flush out your system.
While drinking tons of water, replace about one-third of that water with green tea. This is a very vital part of and will play a vital role in your 4-day diet plans.
Now exercising we know is good for you.
On your 4 day diet plan you will want to burn more calories. Sweating however you choose to will release salt from your system through the sweat that you secrete through your skin. Don’t just dwell in the sun to sweat, get your heart rate up and work up a sweat. Trying to sweat for 40 to 45 minutes would be in your best interest. While both eliminating excess water weight and salt this serves two purposes, so you will need this on your three-day diet plan.
For what you will be eating there is a basic formula. Protein is needed for 5 to 6 meals a day. These will be mini meals, that won’t be very big. Counting your calories won’t be necessary if you are controlling your portions around whole foods. About 4oz of protein every 165 min, and 4oz for you women.
In the morning have egg whites and salsa or a protein shake packed full of protein, this will charge your metabolism for what it needs to do first…which is start. Accompany that protein with a small fruit or a vegetable. Vegetables have less sugar than fruits, so try to eat more green vegetables than fruits. Fruits contain easily metabolized carbohydrates that are natural and that your body readily accepts. This sugar turns into energy. If you don’t plan on sweating a lot, try and go with veggies and more leafy greens to accompany your proteins.
On the lunch and dinner meals(4th and 5th)add a complex carb like sweet potatoes or white or brown rice(about a cup). These are good carbs and will work to energize your metabolism further throughout the day without putting too much into your system that won’t burn quickly.
Carbs are necessary to the system, but inactivity requires fewer carbs. Measure this on your own, and determine if your 4 day eating plan warrants more carbs. If you plan on working out hard for these three days of fat burning, have more carbs and protein before and after your vigorous activities.
End the day with a 6th meal of just half of a ruby red grapefruit. This super fruit has little sugar and is packed with antioxidants, and has just enough “juice” to carry your metabolism over to the next day. Do this correctly and your metabolism will work overtime while you sleep. Buy special whole foods for this strategy, just enough for three days.
Lean proteins that have little fat like lean turkey, protein powders, chicken breast, and tuna. Versatile and healthy leafy greens, spinach, turnip and mustard greens, bok choy and kale as well as broccoli.
Plan these meals out and have them ready in your fridge. Go a step further to help yourself save time by setting up the meals before hand and packaging them in the fridge so you can just grab them and eat them.
Before you start, realize that it is a day by day diet plan and you should take it as is. Take a picture of yourself undressed or just weight yourself, and document your results. With these techniques people who have carried weight for a long time are usually pretty good about noticing when a couple pounds disappear. Your clothes have a good way of showing you too. Do good by it and it will do good by you.
4 days is not too little or too much to plan out and put a solid dent in your weight loss goals.
