Five kilos in just one week – and without giving up food, risking a yo-yo effect or torturing yourself. The good thing about the weight loss method: The more you follow the tips, the faster the hip gold will tumble. And: you can pick the four favorite ones from all the tips; not all exercises have to be done daily.
Slimming Tip 1: Drink plenty of water
Important: Sports drinks, fruit smoothies or even a light beer – all these drinks contain on average up to 100 calories. But they are not nearly as filling as a 100 calorie snack. Therefore, you should abstain from these drinks during the short diet and prefer to rely exclusively on water – at least two liters a day stimulate the digestion and flush toxins out of the body. If you find pure water too boring, you can add some flavor to the water with a few mint leaves or a dash of lemon juice.
Slimming Tip 2: Banish white bread and pasta
Over the next seven days, whit up on all foods containing white flour from your diet plan. White rice, spaghetti, sandwiches have nothing to look for now. These foods cause flatulence. In addition, the carbohydrates contained are only filling for a short time. The negative effect: you get hungry again sooner and tend to get back into the fridge faster. White flour – so rather replace with whole-grain products and vegetables. A chicken sandwich becomes a chicken salad, chips and dip become vegetable sticks with dip. The more complex carbohydrates in vegetables are digested more slowly – the satiety lasts longer. In addition vegetables contain a high water portion and moisten so from the inside.
Weight loss tip 3: Cardio training
Any workout that boosts your heart rate also burns calories. The training becomes even more effective if as many muscle groups as possible are moved at the same time. Three to choose from: kickboxing, spinning or swimming. Half an hour burns 200 to 300 calories – while the arms, legs and stomach are defined. Even more calories are burned when building your workout as interval training. Short, fast sessions alternate with slower activity.
Weight Loss Tip 4: Coffee before workout
A small exception to the "Strictly Water" regulation: a small coffee gives a push in the morning – and the workout will be more effective (because energetic), according to experts, if one hour before a black coffee (5 calories) or an espresso Treated with a small shot of light milk (around 11 calories).
Weight loss tip 5: Top-up sex
Not that you need that excuse to pamper your boyfriend at night … but sex is a real calorie burner. Especially when riding on HIM, you burn up to 144 calories in 30 minutes. To do this, sex pumps up the level of the feel-good neurotransmitter endorphins. The nice thing is that you not only feel better, but also less often feel the need for the substitute happy chocolate.
Slimming Tip 6: Pushups
Crossfit exercises such as pushups define the muscles of the upper arms, and the lunge action works for buttocks, thighs and hips. Quick-Tip: 12 push-ups bring a hell of a lot – but make sure that your back and legs are straight!
Slimming Tip 7: 30 minutes more sleep
An additional half hour of sleep (regardless of whether you need eight or five hours sleep) refreshes sufficiently. You feel less lethargic when you go to the gym, you make better decisions about breakfast (about less sugar than quick energy kick). Seven to eight hours of sleep are also optimal for boosting your metabolism during sleep.
Slimming Tip 8: Do without treats
Even refraining from a small treat (such as the chips as a lunch snack or the chocolate as a dessert) can sublimate several 100 calorie-counted calories from the diet over the next seven days. And: The body really will not miss the absence of treats painfully …
Slimming Tip 9: Stand upright
Tighten the shoulders, pull in the stomach, squeeze the butt – who checks his posture again and again, strengthens his body feeling and automatically decreases. Qucik-Tip: when driving in the public transport to work or on the office chair, pinch the butt firmly, hold for 5 seconds, relax again. Short break, then tense the butt again. Repeat this exercise during the day more often, you quickly reaps a crack-popo.
