How to Lose 30 Pounds Fast

Want to lose 30 lbs in a short amount of time? Maybe you have an important even coming up such as a wedding, reunion, party, or "beach" day. Maybe you just want to shed the extra fat and look and feel better. Whatever the case, when you find yourself wanting to lose 30 pounds but you don't have a lot of time to spare, use the tips below. They could easily help you lose 30 pounds within just a few weeks... and the work 100% better than any of the crash diets out there!

Do a Juice or Lemon Water Fast

Doing a short 1, 2, or 3-day fast is a healthy and relatively easy way to "detox" your body, boost your energy, and lose several pounds quickly. For a juice fast, you'll need a juicer and a wide variety of organic fruits and vegetables. A simpler alternative is a "lemon water" fast where you drink only pure spring water with fresh lemon juice squeezed into it for a day or two. You can also use fresh lime juice if you prefer the taste.

HIIT the Cardio

High intensity interval training (HIIT) is an incredibly effective form of fat-burning cardio exercise. It involves doing short bursts of high-intensity exercise interspersed with periods of active recovery. HIIT is a proven technique that even fitness models use to shed fat before competitions. If you want to lose 30 pounds quickly you should try to do at least 3-5 short (15-30 minutes) HIIT workouts a week.

To change things up, stave off boredom, and keep your body from adapting, you should also go do a fun sport or activity at least once a week. Basketball, soccer, tennis, hiking, bike riding, and martial arts are all good options.

Eat a Good Carb-Only Diet

During this time, avoid all processed carbohydrates. That especially includes anything made with refined sugars or flours. While you're at it, avoid all white potatoes and white rice. All your carbohydrates should come from vegetables, fruits, beans, and legumes. Be sure to eat plenty of protein and good fats, such as olive oil, avocado, nuts, and seeds.

Losing 30 pounds fast isn't the easiest thing to do but, if you focus your efforts, you can make some big changes in the way your body looks within just a few weeks.
