How to Lose Weight in 24 Hours?
24-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:
- It gives you time to adjust to your new (reduced) weight
- You will have the time to build stamina and strength
- 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?
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.
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.
Circuit weight training:
30-minute exercise can help you lose 370 calories.
You can burn 280 calories in just 30 minutes
Running 10 minutes for a mile:
Burn 365 calories in 30 minutes
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:
- Cardiovascular exercises
- Steam room/Sauna
- 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:
- 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.
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.
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.
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:
- Diet plans
- Drinking water
- Relaxed Sleep
- Cardiovascular exercise
- Steam room/ Sauna
- Body wraps
