I have done this every summer the last 2 years to lose the last few lbs in my diet by my goal date. I lose 6 lbs in 3 days. Jennifer

To Lose 5 Pounds In 2 Days…

1. Drink lots of water…

Yes, I know it sounds crazy but the more water you drink = The less water weight you'll carry around.

You need to drink lots of water because…
  • When you don't drink enough water (even when your body is a little dehydrated) your body will hold on to every single little drop of water it can to stay hydrated and…
  • If you drink plenty of water… Your body will have no problem getting rid of any excess water and as a bonus…
  • Drinking water will actually help you get a flatter stomach - See how to get a flatter stomach in a week for more details

2. Stop eating so much salt / sodium by eating no more than 1500mg a day

You have to stop eating so much salt because…
  • Eating too much salt forces your body to hold onto water to process the extra salt you eat and…
  • There's 2 ways you can flush out excess salt & water…
    • 1. You can Sweat out excess salt
      Do anything to make you sweat (the more the better).

      Wear sweatshirts or any other warm clothing to make you sweat more. Sitting in a steam room for 10 minutes will get rid of excess salt/sodium. And you could exercise!
    • 2. You can drink it out (the easy way)
      Just drink plenty of water to flush out excess sodium and water.

3. You have to limit the amount of carbs (carbohydrates) you eat.

You can lose 3-5 lbs. in 2 days by eating less carbs because…
  • Each pound of carbs stored in your body has about 3-5 pounds of water packed into it and…
  • If you don't eat too many carbs for the next two days and let the carbs stored in your body burn up for energy - the 3-5 lbs of water that was packed in it will vanish as well.

Follow This 3 Part Plan To Lose 5 Pounds Or More In 2 Days…

1. Drink lots of water…

You should Drink at least 1/2-to-1 ounce of water per pound of body weight. Use the water calculator below to figure out how much water you need to drink to flush out excess water weight from your body. CAUTION: DO NOT drink your water all at once & try to drink your water spread out during the day

Enter Your Weight, and press submit
You need to drink - ounces of Spring water each day for the next 2-to-3 days to Flush out 5 pounds of water

2. Eat food that's low in salt/sodium…

For the next 2 days you have to limit your salt to just 500-to-1500 mg a day and that's only two small teaspoons and If you find it impossible to keep your salt intake low…

You can use spices such as garlic, ginger & black pepper as salt substitutes and spices also help increase your fat-burning metabolism and another good salt substitute is a product called Nu-Salt and remember…

You should exercise or safely use steam rooms or saunas to help you also flush out excess sodium & water and you need to take a multivitamin daily to replace any essential minerals you lose while flushing out excess sodium & water weight.

3. Limit your carbs by eating foods high in protein and low in carbs…

The only carbs you should get for the next 2-to-3 days should only come from fruits and veggies and… Everything else you eat should be high in protein / low in carbs - See a list of high protein foods good for weight loss.

The amount of water weight you lose in 2 days depends on how much salt, carbs, and water you were putting in your body before you started this simple plan so… You could be carrying 0 (none at all) to 10 pounds (or more!) of excess water weight and…

You shouldn't gain too much water weight back unless…

  • You eat too much salt and then your body has to retain all that water to handle the excess salt. After you lost 5 pounds or more in 2-3 days… You can prevent water weight gain by eating no more than 2000-to-3000mg of salt or sodium a day and/or…
  • You don't drink any water at all - this will cause your body to retain water also and/or…
  • You eat way too many carbs - Every pound of carbs stored in your body holds 3-5 pounds of water. After you finish this 2-3 day plan… Just eat a balanced diet of carbs, proteins, and fats to prevent water weight gain and remember…
  • This plan will only help you lose water weight real fast only temporarily so you need to pick one of these weight loss plans if you want to lose weight and keep it off forever and…

Other stuff that'll help you lose 5 pounds a week…

Hi I'm 16 5"3 and 130 pounds. I've been drinking water nonstop for the past few days and haven't seen a difference. What else can I do?

I'm 15, my height is 5'2 and I weigh 125 pounds. My parents keep telling me I'm fat. I really want to lose weight as fast as I can . I started to walk on the treadmill until I burn 1000 calories and I've kept this up for almost 2 weeks. I haven't been drinking much water-probably why I haven't lost weight yet however, I eat clean most of the time. Am I not losing weight because I'm not drinking enough water?
Thank you so much!

Hello! I'm am boxing in an amateur bout this coming Saturday afternoon (in two days).

I'm currently 159 lbs. I weigh in tomorrow (Friday) evening. I need to weigh 152 lbs.

My plan is to eat nothing at all from now (it's evening right now) until then except occasional sips of water, do some cardio tomorrow morning, and hit the sauna for a half hour or so in the afternoon.

Do you think this will all be enough to drop the seven pounds by then?

you can eat but keep it high protein. to lose 7 pounds that fast means losing water weight with the strategies on this page

Look man I need help fast I'm 12 but at school I get beat up and made fun of in the change room since I am a bit chubbier than other people. Please help me.

Look up the Atkins diet on line. Count your carbs- no more than 20 a day. No bread or pasta or sugar. East mostly chicken steak eggs mostly protein. You can eat veggies and salad but no fruit and you still have to watch how much salad and veggies you eat on this diet.
My son who was 14 and chubby did this diet faithfully and didn't cheat he lost 20 pounds in a month and in total lost 40 pounds. He is 19 now and still eats the same way but not as strict. He is very trim and fit.
If you follow the diet it will work. If you exercise like walking fast for 30 min. a day it will help. also you have to drink lots of water. Make sure you take a muti vitamin as well. Read about it on Atkins.com

Hi Adrian!
Your website is so awesome! Thank you for sharing all of this information with us!!
I have a beach vacation planned in exactly 50 days, and i'm wondering if I can get down from 129 lbs to 115 lbs in that amount of time? I'm 5'5, and I'm just flabby everywhere with zero core strength. I really want skinny arms, a flat stomach, and a lifted butt. LOL am I asking for too much?

Dede, you need to join a gym like me. barry's bootcamp(intense cardio and strength training in a group setting) toned me up but it took a few months. With a combination of diet(no salt, less carbs which is basically PALEO) the weight drops quick. Also, I just drink alakaline water with electrolytes, hot organic green tea with organic raw honey, and Bai 5 iced tea/lemonade.
My diet mostly consist of organic foods from whole foods and trader joes: egg whites,berries, lara bars, grilled chicken cooked in balsamic vinegar/rosemary, dried mango, kosher turkey meatballs, spaghetti squash, organic low sodium pasta sauce, spinach, broccoli, salsa, gaucomole, unsalted low carb tortilla chips and Cashews

I do barry's bootcamp 5 days a week! an hour each day. How do you think those Miss Universer contestants stay in top shape for competition?They are obligated to be in the gym 5 days a week by contract.
