Diet Plans For Weight Loss in 7 Days

Preventing weight gain can be just as important in protecting your health from obesity related health conditions.

That is because a weight gain of just 0.7 kilos per year can push you into the overweight or obese category over a number of years. Here we take a closer look at some of the most common weight loss plans to help you maintain your weight or lose those unwanted pounds in a healthy and sustainable way.

Diet Plans For Weight Loss In 7 Days

  1. Low-carbohydrate / high-protein diet

    This diet recommends 15 to 20 percent of kilojoules comes from carbohydrates and 75 to 80 cent percent of your food intake should consist of proteins and fats.
    Effective in reducing body weight because your body burns stores fat for energy rather than carbohydrates.

  2. Lunchbox diet

This diet is based on grazing 60 percent vegetables, 30 percent protein and 10 percent fat throughout the day from a lunchbox container. Filling a lunchbox with nutritious pre-prepared foods offers a great way to prevent overeating as the lunchbox is a quantity guide. A lunchbox filled with a salad wrap, fruit, grain, wholemeal crackers, low-fat yoghurt, dried fruit and nuts is an ideal combination.

3. Meal replacement diet

This diet is based on the principle of swapping a high-kilojoule meal with a pre-packaged shake, soup, bar or biscuit. Meal replacements are portion controlled, easy to consume and are formulated to make you feel fuller for longer. On the down side some programs may not be nutritionally complete as they recommend taking supplements to maintain a balanced nutrition.

4. Detox diet

Detoxifying or cleansing diets can help your body remove toxins, shift weight and boost your energy efficiencies and get you back on track in helping you make healthier food choices.

5. Counting calories

Counting calories teaches you to be more mindful as the caloric value of food. For women aged between 19-30 to maintain a healthy weight you should consume between 7,100kj to 13,900kj per day.   For women aged between 31-50 to maintain a healthy weight you should consume between 7,300kj and 12,500kj per day.  Therefore in order to lose between 0.5 to 1 kg per week a drop of 2100kj to 4200kj will be required.

Any one of the 5 diet plans for weight loss in 7 days outlined above can play an important role in kick starting your weight loss and help you reach your weight loss goal quickly.  Hopefully by starting a diet plan for weight loss you will be well on the way to ensuring a long term healthy weight loss.
