How to Lose Weight in 3 Days Naturally

Updated November 21, 2016

Natural weight loss comes from eating right and being physically active. According to "Fit To Be Well," weight can fluctuate in an individual by 0.907 to 1.81 Kilogram throughout the day. So a quick weight loss, in three days, will take a lot of determination. Usually it is hard to see results that soon, but it can be done. And depending on how much weight a person is trying to lose, it can be done with the right motivation. To lose weight in three days, it will be important to not skip any steps.

Cut out junk foods, sweets and whole milk products, as well as red meat, which tends to be fattier than other meats, like chicken and turkey. Instead of sugary sweets, eat fresh fruits like apples, grapes and strawberries. To replace crunchy snacks like chips, eat carrots or celery. Choose low-fat or no-fat milk and dairy products. Make meals rich in whole grains and lean meats, and cut portion sizes. Don't eat more than 85.1gr of meat per the normal three daily meals. Also, skip eating after 7 p.m. in order to make sure all of the food eaten each day gets worked off before bed.

Get plenty of exercise. Changing diet alone will not shed pounds. You must burn 3,500 calories in order to lose 1 pound of weight. This is deterred by the calories taken in each day from the food you eat. This means that it is not only important to have a daily exercise routine, but it is also important to get added physical activity into each day. Exercise at least 30 minutes each day. On top of that, go for a hike, walk or jog. Park farther away from destinations. Take the stairs often. Play tag with the kids or family dog.

Sleep for at least 7 hours each night. "Lifetime Physical Fitness & Wellness" suggests that the right amount of uninterrupted sleep each night can actually help with weight loss. Sleep can help the body relax and recuperate, which makes exercise easier and work better because the body will have more energy.

Drink plenty of water every day. "Williams' Essentials of Diet & Nutrition" recommends at least eight 8 oz. glasses of water every day, and more when working out. Water is important to keep the body both hydrated and cleansed.
