Need to Lose 5 Pounds in a Week? Here’s How

If you have a big event coming up like a gala ball at the largest venue in your city or your daughters third birthday party you may want to slim down a little.

But how to do it? How to drop those 5 pounds by next week?

Do This … Lose 5 Pounds

Drink Water and Nothing Else

cosmowaterA sports or energy drink, fruit smoothie, or light beer — each serving of any of these contains about 100 calories. If you need to have an energy boost drink coffee instead, see item below.

Don’t Eat White Bread and Pasta

Cutting out all white grain products — such as white rice, spaghetti, sandwich rolls — will instantly slim you down because the simple carbs in these foods cause bloating, especially around your belly. If you feel the need for grains eat barley, oats or brown rice.

Get into a Cardio Workout 30 Minutes a Day

Any workout that gets your heart rate up will burn calories. Activities like running, cycling, rowing and swimming will help you to feel good, look toned and burn some calories too.

Drink Coffee an Hour Before Working Out

Just don’t load your coffee with sugar.

Do 36 Push-Ups and Lunges Every Other Day

These gym-class staples will help sculpt muscle, so you’ll sport a more streamlined appearance. Do three sets of 12 of each exercise every other day.

Sleep 30 Minutes More a Night

That extra half an hour, whether you sleep 5 hours or 8, can refresh you enough that you will make better food choices (in other words, no quick sugar fix for breakfast in search of energy) and won’t feel lethargic and skip the gym

Have You-on-Top Sex for the Next Week … or More

Make One Food Sacrifice

Cutting out one eating indulgence that is normal for you — such as the chips you have with lunch or the chocolate dessert you eat after dinner — can subtract several hundred calories per week from your diet.

Do Squats and Sit-Ups

Bodybuilders use this technique before competitions because it adds definition to muscle.

Pop an Antigas Pill

Take one of these chewable tablets, sold over-the-counter at drugstores, to relieve bloating in your abdomen and break up gas bubbles in your digestive track, leaving you with a flatter tummy.
