Losing weight is always a challenge. Even trying to lose 5 pounds can be difficult for some people. Whether you’re preparing for a wedding, vacation, or if you just want to fit into your favorite pair of jeans again, kicking those few pounds will take time and dedication.
For fast results, here are 6 ways you can lose 5 pounds this month… or better yet, lose 5 lbs in 5 days with the advice given in #6.
1. Limit Fat Intake
Fat is an essential component in your diet, but it only needs to be about 20% of your daily intake of nutrients. Eating a diet full of fast food and processed food leads to about 40% from fat. Limiting your fat intake will give you a more wholesome approach to your diet and help you lose 5 pounds or more.
2. Eat More Protein
Consuming more protein is an easy way to help you feel full without storing excess weight. Protein is a macronutrient that is not stored in excess. Any additional protein that you eat is passed as waste – making it a very effective solution to weight loss.
3. Start Exercising
Diet will take you pretty far, but the real kick start will occur when you start exercising. Do simple things like going on the treadmill, basic barbell exercises, or joining a yoga class. You could also swim, enjoy walking 10K steps several times a week or play with your kids. The style of exercise doesn’t matter. Be patient, have fun, and you will soon lose 5 pounds or even more weight if that is your ultimate goal.
4. Eat More Fiber
Fiber is an indigestible source of carbohydrates. Consuming it in larger quantities can help you to feel full. Fiber will also lower your net carbohydrate count, lower cholesterol, and lead to greater success in weight loss.
5. Eat Spicy Foods
Eating spicy foods like garlic, pepper, and cayenne will help to increase your metabolic rate in a very natural way. That’s because of an ingredient called capsaicin which can help to elevate the heart rate without having an effect on blood pressure – perfect for that extra kick in weight loss.
