    Question Prom Diet?

    Okay, so I know I could have started this earlier, but prom is in a week, and I know I'm not going to find any miracle way to lose 20 pounds before then, but does anyone have any ideas for losing like 2-5 lbs. in a week? I just want to have little more energy and make sure everything fits as well as possible. I've been reading about drinking a ton of water, and am going to do it- plus the colder the better, I've heard! But does anybody have any food tips on how to loose a little extra weight or even extra water weight, beyond drinking more water? Please help!

    Heh 20 lbs...chop off a limb.

    But seriously you MIGHT be able to lose 4-5 lbs (this is including water weight) if you do the following-

    1) Dont eat any starches or carbs:
    No pop
    No chips/ junk food
    No WHITE bread (eat wheat bread IF you must)
    No potatoes or yams
    No WHITE rice (brown rice in fist size portions is good)

    2) Yes drink lots of water, your body will flush out extra water (water weight)

    3) Do cardio for 30 min when you wake up on an empty stomach (or if you can't then any time of the day)
    . Doesnt matter what, walking, running, rollerblading, biking just do something

    4) If you have access to a weight room do some weight resistance, muscle burns more calories than fat. It will also speed up your metabolism

    5) Keep all meals to the size of your fist, and eat 6-7 of these small meals a day (2 hours apart or so)

    It will be hard but if you do follow these rules you'll be shredded in no time. If you stay on you could easily lose that 20 lbs in 2 months.
