There comes a time in every year, that we decide we want to lose a few pounds and look good. Whether it be to get the bikini bod or to look amazing in that little black dress, we want to look good and we start getting excited about it. But sometimes, working out is hard and time consuming, so we try those fad diets which some people swear by. Sadly we learn that they all don’t work but here are a few that have actually produced results.
First up the Military Diet, the rumour mill is that this is the diet used by the US Army as a quick way to lose a few pounds. When I say quickly, I mean quick- it’s only for 3 days. This is essentially a calorie watcher and the entire calorie consumption per day is less than 1000 calories. The meal plan provides for 3 meals a day and no in between. It can get a bit tough to get through the day but it can only done for 3 days due to its harshness. However, the trick to losing the pounds is to stick to the off day meal plan as well which lasts about 4 days. If done correctly, you can lose up to 10 pounds.
If you’re more into having a full belly during the day you can try the Isagenix 30 day cleanse. This is where the all the nutrients you need is provided by way of 2 meal supplements and low calorie meal at the end of the day. This gives you the energy you need for the day and it keeps you away from the fatty foods that cause weight gain.
If you prefer not to use meal supplements like the Isagenix 30 day cleanse, then you can try the Master Cleanse where you drink concoction of water, lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper along with an herbal tea for 10 days. This makes you lose weight fast but it can’t be done for a long time. The most popular testament for this method is by Beyoncé for her role in the movie Dream Girls.
No matter how much we weigh, we will always want to lose a pounds for certain functions. While the healthy way is by exercise, sometimes you need a cheat sheet and most of these diets work like that. But before starting any diet or cleanse, the best thing is to consult your doctor so as to avoid any complications with your health.
