How can I lose 20 pounds fast?

Answer

Eating less than 1,200 calories a day is one way to lose 20 pounds faster, according to NowLoss.com, but this should not be a permanent plan. Eating up to four times a day helps as well. Eat a zero- to 300-calorie meal after consuming raw fruits or vegetables for a fuller stomach, and drink 8 ounces of cold water with fruits and veggies to get rid of hunger pains.

NowLoss.com further notes that cold water raises the metabolism and causes the body to burn calories by bringing the water to body temperature. Dieters can follow a tiered calorie system based on hunger. For instance, a zero- to 150-calorie meal satisfies minimal hunger. A 100- to 200-calorie meal can be reserved for dieters who are a little hungry, and a 200- to 300-calorie meal is for someone who is very hungry.

NowLoss.com mentions a structured workout plan that consists of a 20 to 40 minute workout session for one or two times a day. This exercise plan should be done three or four days per week. Other options include walking, bike riding or jogging for 30 to 90 minutes.

According to iFitAndHealthy.com, cutting calories must be done in conjunction with exercise. For example, deducting 500 calories from a 3,000 calorie daily intake for two weeks is another step in losing weight. Cut an additional 200 calories if there are no results in two weeks.
