Get dramatic results with a serious diet plan such as a very low calorie diet, juice fasting or a low carb, high protein diet. If you are looking to drop a lot of weight in a short period of time these diet plans will get you the results you need.
Very Low Calorie Diet
For extreme weight loss try a very low calorie diet (VLCD). You’ll only get 800 calories a day and VLCDs consist of mainly protein enriched foods such as fish and chicken, vitamin supplements, meal replacement bars and shakes.
The diet promotes rapid weight loss and should last only a few months under a doctor's care. This diet can be implemented using foods and meal supplements from your local grocery or health food store.
Low Carb Diet
Losing weight on a low carb diet means that you remove or limit your starchy carbohydrate intake such as bread, grains, rice and starchy vegetables in an effort to lose weight. Most people lose a generous amount of weight on a low carb diet because the absence of carbs means that your blood sugar and insulin level are lowered which leads to weight loss.
A typical low carb diet consists of lean meat, eggs, dairy and nonstarchy vegetables. You also will want to eliminate sugar from your diet, too. Dieters experience a decreased appetite, loss of water weight, fuller feeling due to the high protein, high fat diet and overall reduced caloric intake.
During a juice fast you consume only liquefied fresh vegetables for a few days. You will lose weight faster and at a more dramatic rate than many other diets because you only consume juiced vegetables.
As the diet progresses your metabolism increases, the number of calories is reduced and you body begins to shed water weight and fat. Dieters lose an average of five to seven pounds on an average three-day fast.
Drink plenty of water in between meals and consume up to 12 ounces of freshly made vegetable juice for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You’ll need a juicer to create your meals but you also can have vegetable broth and only freshly squeezed fruit juices. For your freshly squeezed vegetable juices choose between beetroot, bittermelon, broccoli, celery, cucumber, garlic, ginger root, kale, onion, parsley, spinach, watercress and wheatgrass.
