How to Lose Water Weight in 24 Hours?

Before we go into cons and pros of losing water weight, lets discuss why we want to do it? Why we want to lose weight in just 24 hours? Why this urgent task is so much important to us?

My friend Amelie does this job when she has to attend a party or a special event is coming up. I asked her why does she go through all these weight loss techniques for just a day. And she replied:

“I know my weighing machine does not move much but I can feel a really great difference in my body and 24 hour weight loss is all about experiencing a change in your body”.

In that case, I agree with Amelie. I do not expect a 10 pound loss in a day but these techniques can help you feel slim.

So I think the name of the article should have been “slim down in 24 hours” . But that’s not the topic, we want to know how to lose water weight in 24 hours.

I always say 24 hour weight loss is all about losing water weight. Techniques used for this procedures are as follow

  • Cardiovascular exercise
  • Steam Bath
  • Body wraps
  • Walking/Running
  • Balanced diet

All these techniques help you to sweat more profusely.

What is water weight?

How many glasses of water do you drink each day? An approximate answer should be 6 to 8 glasses. For a healthy life we need 8 glasses of water per day. This requirement also depends on your workout routines. People who work hard physically, burn more calories and they need more water to keep their energy in balance.

Teenagers who play outdoor games need to drink more water as compared to adults. Before we go any further; we must know what is water weight? Is it good or bad? And we must figure out whether water weight loss is a temporary effect or it can be made permanent.

Water weight, Good or Bad?

Sometimes, it is good. As in case of pregnancy most women feel swelling on their ankles and legs. This kind of weight gain is necessary for the safety of fetus and do not worry, you will lose this weight quickly after child birth.

Female monthly periods can be a cause of water weight gain. Eat healthy and drink a lot of water through out your monthly cycle.

Drink water to lose water weight

drink water

It is a scientific observation that people who drink more water retain less water and they are less likely to gain water weight.

In simple words, when our body is fully hydrated  it does not need to store water and essential fluids. But if you are on fasting or you do not drink enough water then our body needs to store water and that is the phenomenon known as water weight.

Water weight usually becomes evident in special skinny areas like your waist, belly and thigh. Water weight gives you a puffy appearance. Your arms and fingers feel like swollen.

Define Water Weight

Our body can store extra water due to hormone growth, sodium level and carbohydrates. All of this can happen because we do not eat the natural way.

In California, canned food is a common way to eat fruits and vegetables. Approximately, 60% of the population prefer canned fruit over fresh fruit. I can understand the reason behind this act.

Number one reason is that you are a busy person. When we have to handle our job and home at the same time; canned food is a good option.

This problem can be solved if you know how to

Design quick dishes.

Cooking is an art. It is a real fun thing and does not take much time. You can do cooking on your own and there are many blogs to assist you in this case.

Take a look at foodaddicts.com. These kind of blogs share healthy, tasty and easy to cook recipes. Most meals can be cooked in less than 15 minutes.  So why not spent 15 minutes in designing a healthy meal for a healthy meal.

raw vegetables, cook your own meal

This step is not only for water weight loss. Cooking your own food helps you stay healthy and live a long life. (Do not forget, good diet plans contribute to permanent fat loss.)

Solution for water weight

So now we know what is water weight and now we want to resolve the issue. Water weight gain is not a  big issue and a few pounds can be lost without much hard work.

Exercise, steam room, body wraps, and some simple weight loss tips can help you lose water weight but if you want to make big changes then go one step further.

  1. Increase your consumption of pure and natural water
  2. Reduce salt intakes in the form of cold drinks, canned food, medications and artificial drinks.
  3. Avoid sodium snacks and high sugar fruits.
  4. Take fresh fruits, fresh vegetables and fresh fruit juices.

Oranges

That’s it. You have taken a great step. If you are following these steps, you can make sure that you will not gain water weight.

Losing water weight is not a big achievement

I want to resolve a misconception in this regard. Water weight is real weight. Isn’t it?

And it takes effort and time to lose water weight. But more often, losing water weight is not considered as a big achievement. Losing 4 pounds of water weight can happen in a day but losing 4 pounds of fat does not happen in an easy way.

But still, losing water weight is a first step toward achieving a slim body and you should congratulate yourself on your success.

Losing water weight gives you immediate results and it is always nice to see rewards when you are making effort.

Tips to Lose Water Weight

Avoid Sugar

Sugar is a helpful substance for your body but when it is taken excessively, it becomes a poison. Sugar contributes to excessive fat storage and cellulite problems. Intake of natural sugar is always a great replacement for artificial sugar.

Natural sugar can be always obtained from fruits and it is also a great source of fiber intake.

Drink a lot of water

 

Naturally, our body should not retain water. We must drink necessary fluids and water because our body lose these fluids every hour. If we do not drink enough water, our body goes into dehydration mode and it tries to stick to the water weight.

It is recommended that you include natural drinks in your diet plan. Avoid soda and artificial sweeteners and replace them with green tea and natural lime juice.

Avoid Medications (Please consult your doctor)

Some medications can increase your hunger and leads to water retention.

Sometimes these medications support vital body functions like medications used for diabetes, cholesterol and blood pressure. These kind of medications can have certain side effects which can lead to water weight gain.

Doctors often prescribe water pills to solve this issue.

Avoid sleeping pills and anti-depression medicines and substitute them with a natural walk, meditation, a good book or a nice hobby.  Watch a comedy film and enjoy your life. This has great impacts as compared to medications.

Exercise

exercise

Exercise can help you keep off water weight. Go for a natural walk or do yoga or may be cycling or whatever suits you best. Make your exercise a fun thing to do so that you can enjoy it.

Water pills

Water pills are often recommended for kidney disorders. Water pills can cause an increase in urination and that is how you lose water weight.

Using water pills is not a healthy way to lose weight and it is not recommended much.

 Avoid Salt

salt

Water is naturally attracted toward sodium molecules and it can contribute to a puffy appearance and excessive weight gain. Avoid salt to lose water weight and this means you should avoid:

  • Canned food with added salts
  • Canned fish and meat with added salts
  • Try to avoid salt in ready made sauces, soya sauce, mustard and mayonnaise.
Steam Room

Steam room is a good way to lose water weight. Read more on Steam room here.

Body Wraps

Body wraps tighten your skin to help you get slim. Read more here Complete Body Wrap guide at SlimCA.

In an interview Dr.Oz said that most people suffer from health problems because they just cannot automate the system. When we are healthy, we automatically follow good habits.

It is important to read good information on health but it is also important to adopt your own style. Make a weight loss plan and stick with it so that you can automate your life. In this way life becomes easier otherwise, it becomes so hard to avoid salt and sugar.

To your weight loss success.

Losing weight in 24 hours is not difficult. By using some simple tips, you can easily lose 2 to 3 pounds in a day. Set a goal for yourself but set some realistic goal. It is not recommended to lose 30 pounds in 24 hours.

Losing more than 24 hours in a month is dangerous for your health. This is not Disney land; we cannot afford to lose 30 pounds in a day.

Weight loss takes some time and patience. There are quick weight loss schemes that work but they are not recommended. Because these schemes do not produce permanent results.

Before using 24 hour weight loss scheme, you must know that results are temporary. You will lose water weight due to steam room, exercise, body wraps and because of your diet plan.

24-hour weight loss plan

weight loss in 24 4hours. Made possible!

How to lose weight in 24 hours?

What should be your diet plan to lose weight in 24 hours? Well! We recommend this diet plan. This diet plan is taken from the famous 3-day diet plan. Plan is as follow:

  1. You will be taking a cup of black coffee (no sweetener) with ½ grape fruit, 1-tablespoon butter, and a toast in breakfast.
  2. In lunch, you may take black tea with a toast and half cup of tuna.
  3. In dinner 3 oz lean meat with 1 apple, 1 grape fruit and a cup of carrots.

This diet plan uses approximately 1000 calories in a day, so that it can ensure your weight loss success.

Body wraps

Body wraps can be used to lose weight in 24 hours; because they produce quick results. Body wraps also use massage therapies, heat therapies, and steam room to lose weight quickly.

Steam room

Steam room is a good choice. If you want to lose weight in the next 24 hours, it is an indication that you want to attend a party or some special event. Steam room can help you in this case. It will open your skin pores. Because of high temperature, you will be sweating and it helps your skin get rid of toxins and excessive fluids. Your skin will look young and tight.

Avoid fries and Salts

Do not take salts and spices for the next 24 hours. Also do not even think about fries, alcohol and drinks.

Avoid starchy Carbohydrates

Carbohydrates are an important part of our meal but starchy carbohydrates like refined sugar and potatoes are not good for our weight loss efforts.

Cardiovascular Exercises

What are cardiovascular exercises? These exercises are meant to increase your heartbeats. So anything that can help you increase your heart rate will fall in the category of cardiovascular exercises. It can be walking, running, home exercises, yoga, bicycling, swimming, aerobic exercises and weight lifting etc.

You can try different cardiovascular exercises according to your lifestyle. Walking, running and weight lifting is a good choice for most people. If your slimming center has a swimming pool, then go ahead swim a little. It is a great cardiovascular exercise.

Do not do cardiovascular exercises for more than 60 minutes.

Drinking water

24-hour weight loss is dependent upon water weight loss. Steam room and cardiovascular exercises will work only if you are well hydrated. When you are thirsty, your body sticks to the water weight and it stores toxins and unnecessary fluids. Drink 10 to 12 glasses of water in next 24 hours. Water reduces hunger and it promotes weight loss.

A Quick Tip To Lose Weight In 24 Hours

 

How to Lose Weight in 24 Hours?

lose weight in 24 hours24-hour weight loss is not a difficult task if you have the necessary will power and right plans to follow. If you want to do something, then go ahead do it. Set a goal, make some plans and achieve it.

You can easily lose 2 to 3 pounds. It takes a little effort. Do cardiovascular exercises, eat fibers, and drink a lot of water. But this is not the end of story. Some interesting facts and figures are related to this topic. You all know how to lose weight in 24 hours. You know how to drink 10 glasses of water in a day, exercise for 60 minutes and a low-calorie diet plan to follow, but it takes more than that.

There are some unseen objectives that have not been yet discussed on the web. If you have been successful in your weight loss goals; you can guess what I am saying.

There are some people who can eat whatever they want and still they are smart and fit. It is the ideal situation. It is a good lifestyle, which is a combination of good exercise workouts and healthy diet plans. If your calorie intake is 2000 calories per day and you burn 2200 calories in a day, it is obvious that you can eat whatever you want and weighing machine will not move forward.

10-Day Weight Loss Campaign

If you would like to lose weight in 24 hours, then it is recommended to start a 7 or 10-day weight loss campaign. 10-day weight loss plan is a lot better than 3-day plan because:

  1. It gives you time to adjust to your new (reduced) weight
  2. You will have the time to build stamina and strength
  3. You can follow a reasonable 10-day diet plan, which does not put you on a crash-dieting course. Do not try to lose more than 4 pounds in a month.

According to Mayo clinic’s advice, you can easily lose 1 to 2 pounds in a week, and it is safe. If you are losing more than 2 pounds in a week; then the chances are that you are not losing fat; you are losing muscle mass.

It is not a safe step to lose more than 4 pounds in a month. Same is true for 10-day weight loss plan. Lose 4 pounds in 10 days and then for the remaining month, try to maintain this weight.

When we are attempting to lose weight, we do not want to lose muscle mass because they contribute toward a better metabolism rate and a healthy life. We want to burn excessive fats and look smart and young.

According to Michael Rozen MD (author of you on a diet), we lose 5% of muscle mass every 10 years, after age 35. Now you are reading this fact. If your age is above 35, it is a scientific advice, do not go for 24-hour weight loss scheme. There is one thing you can try which is body wrap technique.

24-Hour Weight Loss, Is it safe?

Coming back to our topic, we want to know whether 24-hour weight loss is safe. If so, how are we going to achieve it?

According to fitness magazine Director Mary Christ Anderson,

“One pound equals 3500 calories, so to lose 2 pounds in 2 days; you would need to eat 2500 fewer calories.”

We cannot reduce 2500 calories in our diet plan. This certainly does not make sense, and it puts us on a crash-dieting course, which is neither safe nor healthy.

How to achieve 24-hour weight loss goals?

cardiovascular exercise for 24  hour weight loss

24 Hour Weight Loss

The idea is that we should burn fat. By using certain cardiovascular exercises, you can burn 10 calories in a minute. A good rule of thumb is that cardiovascular exercise should use your whole body including arms, legs, thighs, hips, chest, abs, and neck.

Before you start your exercise, you should target your thighs, hips, and legs. First, do the exercise for thigh muscles. You can make choices like walking, running but usually exercises like cross jacks work better so that you can make a rhythm.

For example:

In yoga, we start from the mountain pose and then,  we do backbends, forward-looking bend, and it goes like that.

Your next target should be your abs. You should be using your backbone, abs, chest, arms and legs altogether. In yoga, we have the downward facing dog pose to use this technique.

Do not forget to do aerobic exercises in your daily life. These activities include running, walking, hiking, swimming, bike riding, and many others. You can burn more calories when you get your heart rate up for a decent amount of time, which is the idea behind any cardiovascular exercise.

Now it is obvious to ask:

  • How much weight loss is possible with cardiovascular exercise?
  • How long should I do cardiovascular exercise?

Do not do cardiovascular exercise for more than 60 minutes in a day. A good idea is to spare 45 to 50 minutes for exercise.

Do the exercises that your body can sustain well. Fitness comes from time, patience, and persistence. You cannot build your fitness level in just 24 hours. This list includes a good variety of exercises for your body. See and check what works for you.

Running 10 minutes for a mile:

Burn 365 calories in 30 minutes

Swimming

You can burn 250 calories in 30 minutes

Walking a mile in 15 minutes:

You can burn 146 calories in 30 minutes

Cardiovascular exercises are a significant step toward a long and healthy life. They are best to use whether you are an overweight person, or you are already fit and healthy.

Sauna or steam room can be used as an enjoyable journey because you can easily relax here.

How much weight can you lose in the steam room?

In the steam room, you only lose water weight. You must drink 10+ glasses of water to avoid dehydration. According to the research, a healthy person can burn 90 calories in a 30-minute steam room session.

It is a rough idea, and we have found no evidence to support this statement.

In addition to weight loss, the steam room offers many advantages. Steam room techniques have been used in various body wrap procedures. According to Sally Penford, education manager at the international dermal institute in Leather land:

“Inch loss wraps tend to use traditional detoxifying ingredients and pressure from the way the body is wrapped to reduce fluid retention in the skin.”

Sally penford stresses that these kind of treatments result in a temporary fix only. So, if you want to attend a party or you want to wear a particular dress, then inch loss body wraps can be your best choice.

If you want good-looking skin then go for a body wrap session. Body wraps were mainly introduced by the fashion industry and we all know they cannot be used as a weight loss technique. We did a little survey, which showed us that 60% people (who are looking to lose weight in 24 hours) have urgent reasons behind their decisions.

  • They want to attend a  party
  • A special event is coming up and they want to wear a special dress
  • Women are mostly involved in 24-hour weight loss and most of them told us that they want to impress someone special to them.

Other 40% people are looking for quick schemes because they do not want to do anything.  So if you want to get slim because of a special party or event then 24-hour weight loss is a safe application for you. Because you are not looking to lose 10 pounds. You just want to look slim and smart, which can be done by body wrap technique.

So far, we have discussed 3 major techniques:

  1. Cardiovascular exercises
  2. Steam room/Sauna
  3. Body wraps

You know what is missing. You are what you eat and we have not yet discussed the 24-hour weight loss diet plan. 3-day diet plan and 7 day plans are hot items in California but you know that these plans work for short-term goals only .In this post our discussion is limited to 24 hour weight loss.

According to a diet plan offered at womenandhome magazine:

lemon diet for weight loss

lemon diet for weight loss

  • You can take a body cleanser drink i.e lemon juice. It is preferred to take this drink before breakfast.
  • 1 cup of black coffee or tea with low sweetener, almonds, and an apple between breakfast and lunch.
  • 1 bowl of soup for lunch.
  • Have a sanity snack with evening tea.

You can divide this diet plan in 3 portions according to your needs. Main idea is to reduce toxins, burn fat and eat fewer calories.

According to NHS guidelines, on average female needs 2000 calories in a day and on an average men require 2600 calories in a day. When we are taking 1100 to 1500(as it happens in 3 day diet plan) calories in a day, we are putting our self on a crash-dieting course.

But most times, it happens only for one day or a week. After diet plan is over, we are back to our 2000 calories in a day.

Drink a lot of water

Drink a lot of water

Drinking water

In 24-hour weight loss scheme, drinking water is of special importance. This water will be used in steam room, to flush out toxins and to reduce water weight. Do not make yourself dehydrated. Drink a lot of water, 10 glasses in a day is the recommended dose. Cardiovascular exercises require you to drink water. This water will also help you stop craving and you will feel full.

Sleep

We recommend that you use 24-hour weight loss plan on Saturday or Friday so that you have a holiday to take rest. Research from university of Chicago suggests that sleep deprivation may lead to change in how our bodies regulate appetite, leading us to crave more food.

Sleep is a must necessity for you to lose weight. After doing cardiovascular exercise, your body’s metabolism rate is a lot better than before and if you go to sleep after exercise; you will be burning calories while you enjoy good sleep.

There is a last thing to be discussed.

Stop cravings

Most often, it is not easy to stop craving because it is a habit caused by emotional eating. In 24-hour weight loss scheme, little cravings can lead to undesired results. You cannot afford to eat junk food. Choose healthy snacks to satisfy this craving but do not take more than 2 snacks in a day.

In this post, we have shared these weight loss techniques with you:

  1. Diet plans
  2. Drinking water
  3. Relaxed Sleep
  4. Cardiovascular exercise
  5. Steam room/ Sauna
  6. Body wraps

Use a combination of above mentioned steps to ensure safe weight loss success. Everyone is different so you will have to try; to see what works for you. Hope this helps.

To your weight loss success!
