You don’t have to become a gym bunny for you to lose weight. You can get that slimmer, healthier body you’ve been dreaming of from the comfort of your own home and what’s more, you can do it in a week! This might sound impossible but it’s really not! Follow the steps below and you’ll be well on your way.
1. Drink MORE Water
A sports or energy drink, fruit smoothie, or light beer — a serving of each contains about 100 calories, yet these beverages don’t satisfy you the way 100 calories of food does, so they’re a waste. Other liquids may be high in sodium and carbohydrates, which trick your body into retaining water, making you feel puffed. Water, on the other hand, has zero calories and carbs and little to no sodium, making it the perfect slim-down drink. And strangely, it actually helps flush out excess water weight as well as jump-starts your metabolism. If it’s just too boring, add lemon wedges or mint leaves.
2. Have a Diet Plan
Day One: Eat only low-sugar fruit today. No bananas! Choose apples, pomegranates, and any citrus you like. Drink 12 glasses of water.
Day Two: Vegetables only. Start the day with a boiled potato. Eat the salads of your choice, plus drink 12 glasses of water.

You may not want to hear this but there is simply no way around it. You must dedicate at least 15 minutes of your day to your exercise regime. Focus on cardio and fat blasting moves which will help up your energy expenditure. Do squats, planks, bicycle kicks, or go for a run.
