When you are on a weight loss journey that is more of a complete lifestyle overhaul and change, then it’s pretty likely that you are taking things slow and gradually and only dropping one or two pounds a week. This is perfect and healthy for long term success, but what about those periods in your life when you just want to rev up and get some real work done? You might have a vacation or big event coming up, you might want to fit in to that old pair of jeans, you simply might be fed up with that little extra weight you’ve been carrying around. If that is the case, then here are some ways to lose 10lbs in 3 weeks.
1. Start Right Now
Really, what are you waiting for? The biggest hold up with weight loss is waiting for the ‘perfect time’ to do it, because there really is no such thing! Just throw yourself into it and count down those three weeks; it will go by quicker than you think.
2. Meal Prep
For those three weeks you are going to need to be strict with your food, obviously, and the best way to do this is to prep all of your meals on a Sunday night for the week ahead. Batch cooking healthy meals for each evening gives you an easy dinner option every single day, and takes away the temptation to pick up some fast food on the way home because you don’t want to cook!
3. Fresh Juice
If you really want to speed up the process in those three weeks, you can try replacing some meals, maybe lunch every day, with a juice mixture instead of your regular food. The great thing about juicing is that you can make a delicious mixture from all and any of your favourite fruits and vegetables. It will give you all of the nutrition that you need, with fewer calories.
There is no getting around it, you aren’t going to lose ten pounds in three weeks unless you commit to working out! Find things that you actually enjoy doing and it won’t feel like a chore. Swimming, cycling, even things like dancing can all make a difference. As long as you are being active and limiting your calories with healthy meals and juices, you are going to drop the pounds!
