Working on weight loss? Then you probably want results really fast. You can safely lose 3 or more pounds a week at home with a healthy diet and lots of exercise.
How to Lose Weight Fast
If you burn 500 more calories than you eat every day for a week, you should lose about 1-2 pounds.
If you want to lose weight faster, you’ll need to eat less and exercise more.
For instance, if you take in 1,050 to 1,200 calories a day, and exercise for one hour per day, you could lose 3-5 pounds in the first week, or more if you weigh more than 250 pounds. It’s very important not to cut calories any further — that’s dangerous.
Limiting salt and starches may also mean losing more weight at first — but that’s mostly fluids, not fat.
