How Lose 2 to 3 Pounds of Fat FAST

Need to lose a couple of pounds of body fat really fast? Fast fat loss is simply a matter of knowing how to eat and how to exercise intelligently. Below I'll show you 3 proven techniques just about anyone can use to lose 2 or 3 pounds of fat in a matter of days. Use them next time you need to get rid of some belly fat so you squeeze into those "sexy" jeans...

1. Make Veggies Your Only Carbs

For the next few days get 100% of your carbohydrates from raw or lightly cooked vegetables. Eat no sugar (refined or natural) and no starches (grains, potatoes, etc.). This will help you cut calories significantly. It will also shock your body in a way that'll make it easy to burn those few pounds of fat.

2. Start Working Out First Thing in the Morning

Many fitness experts believe that exercising first thing in the morning before eating can help to force your body to burn its stored fat for energy. If nothing else, morning workouts jumpstart your metabolism and make it much more likely that you'll stick to a clean eating plan for the rest of the day.

3. Do Short, Intense Resistance Workouts

Every other day or so do a 15-30 minute workout based around compound resistance exercises that work multiple muscle groups (e.g. squats, pull-ups, push-ups, etc.). Do a combination of movements that work all or at least most of your body. Besides burning lots of calories, these workouts will force your body to pump out powerful fat-burning, muscle-protecting hormones.

So that's it: a simple way to lose 2 or 3 pounds of body fat really quickly. As usual, fast healthy weight loss just comes down to super-clean eating and smart, higher-intensity exercise. Good luck!
