There are many ways to lose a lot of weight in a short amount of time. However, most of them require you to be hungry and unsatisfied.
If you don’t have iron willpower, then hunger will cause you to give up on these planTs quickly.
The 3-step plan outlined here will:
*Kill your appetite.
*Make you lose weight fast, without being hungry.
*Improve your health at the same time.
Step 1 – Eliminate Sugars and Starches
The most important part is to remove sugars and starches (carbs) from your diet.
These are the foods that stimulate secretion of insulin the most. If you didn’t know already, insulin is the main fat storage hormone in the body.
When insulin goes down, fat has an easier time getting out of the fat stores and the body starts burning fats instead of carbs.
Another benefit of lowering insulin is that your kidneys shed excess sodium and water out of your body, which reduces bloat and unnecessary water weight (1, 2).
It is not uncommon to lose up to 10 pounds (sometimes more) in the first week of eating this way, both body fat and water weight.

From your brain to your bones, what you eat matters. So help yourself to some age-defying foods.
“What you eat makes a huge difference in how you age and how you feel,” dietitian Manuel Villacorta says.
“Even your skin will stay younger-looking if you eat right,” says Allison T. Pontius, MD, an expert in anti-aging and regenerative medicine at Williams Center for Plastic Surgery in Latham, NY.
What to Put on Your Plate
Colorful fruits and vegetables. The antioxidants in colorful vegetables and fruits, such as leafy greens, deep red tomatoes, blueberries, and carrots, help stop unstable molecules from damaging healthy cells. So at each meal, fill about half your plate with fruits and vegetables. Your goal is five to nine servings a day.
Three particular antioxidants — vitamin C, zinc, and beta-carotene — help protect your vision from macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness after age 64. If you already have macular degeneration, eating foods with these nutrients may slow its progress. Dark green, leafy vegetables — spinach, kale, collard, and mustard greens — are great sources. But you also help your eyes when you eat bright-colored produce, including corn, peppers, oranges, and cantaloupe.
Antioxidants like vitamin C can even help keep your skin younger-looking. One study linked eating lots of yellow and green vegetables to fewer wrinkles.
A powerful antioxidant in grapes and red wine, called resveratrol, may help lower your odds of getting cancer, heart disease, and premature aging.
Eating whole grains rich in fiber — oats, quinoa, barley, wheat, and brown rice — lowers your chance of developing type 2 diabetes. A healthy diet that contains whole grains also keeps blood vessels in peak condition. Your goal is three servings of whole grains a day.
Omega-3 fatty acids in fatty fish offer many anti-aging benefits. They help protect your heart, lower your odds of having a stroke, and may even help guard against Alzheimer’s disease. Help yourself to two servings a week of fatty fish such as salmon, lake trout, or tuna.
If you typically get tuna from a can, choose albacore packed in water for the most omega-3s. If you don’t eat fish, ask your doctor if you should take fish oil supplements.
