How to Lose 5 lbs. in 1 Week – Great Smoothies make it easier to stay on track with your diet.

How to lose 5 lbs. in 1 week? It is possible!

Losing weight is sometimes a very difficult challenge for us. It takes a lot of dedication and will-power as well as support. Sometimes it is easier if you have a partner or friend that will participate in the same plan. By doing this, you can support each other.

When we try to diet on our own, we tend to forget our goal and give in to temptation when we smell that wonderful aroma of food coming from our kitchen. But when we have someone trying to achieve the same goal, we don’t want to be outdone. This makes it easier to stick to the plan.Diet with your partner or friend

No Guarantees

There are no guarantees in how much weight you will lose in 5 days by following my diet plan, but I know that I personally have followed it per the Monday-Friday plan and lost 5 pounds. We all have different body types and metabolisms. Some people may struggle a little more than others do when trying to lose the extra weight. Just remember that it is much easier to put weight on than it is to take it back off!


The Goal

YOU CAN DO THIS!


What you need for your 5 day diet

Monday-Friday (Take Sat. & Sun. Off)

>>Repeat this diet plan each day of the week

Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) detox

Apple Cider Vinegar Detox

  • 2 TBSP Apple Cider Vinegar

  • 2 TBSP Lemon Juice

  • 1 Tsp Stevia or honey

  • 1 TSP Cinnamon

  • A pinch of Cayenne Red Pepper

  • 16 ounces of warm water

Add all ingredients to a bottle with a lid (I use a used water bottle), shake it up really good and drink.


Water Detox

Water Detox

It is a natural antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and metabolism booster. A better way to get your water in for the day. Cucumber is real low in calories and high in fiber. The Fiber will help curve your appetite during your diet. (64 ounces of water is recommended per day)

  • 6 slices of cucumber

  • ½ lemon cut into quarters

  • 1 inch of Ginger, peeled and cut in half

  • Add all ingredients and 20-30 ounces of water to an infuser water bottle (Best to sit in the refrigerator for a few hours; I fix mine before I go to bed so it’s ready to start drinking the next morning).

  • Refill up to 3 times a day and then start over again with fresh ingredients

I live in North Carolina and I recently graduated in May 2017, from Davidson County Community College with a degree in Network and Cyber Security. I love working on websites and doing research which brings me here. I didn’t know much about fitness and everything involved in it to be fit. I soon realized that being in my 40’s and staying in shape is going to take a lot more work and support. That’s when I decided to build my website around my personal problem areas, with hopes that I will not only get rid of mine, but help others as well.

    Devara,
    I hope this diet plan works for me because I plan to win that money! 😋
    Can I substitute Almond milk in the place of Soy milk? Also, do you suggest the vanilla or the plain? I want to use the one that will benefit me the most.
    Thanks!
    Dennis

    Hi Dennis,
    In response to your questions; yes you can use almond milk instead of soy milk. You would get a lot less protein in almond milk, but it is a healthy substitution.
    Almond milk is low in calories and contains no saturated fat or cholesterol. It’s a good source of vitamins A & D. It’s lactose free.
    Soy milk is low in calories, high in protein, contains vitamin A, B12, and potassium. It is also cholesterol free.
    Vanilla vs Plain; I prefer vanilla but plain would be more beneficial. Plain yogurt contains fewer calories and more protein than vanilla. When you add the ingredients of my smoothies, you can’t really tell the difference between the two. With that being said, I’d recommend the plain Greek yogurt for your diet. Trying to lose 25 pounds in one month will be very challenging. You will need the extra protein so that you stay fuller longer and having fewer calories will help as well.
    I hope this answers your questions.
    Thanks and good luck!

    Devara,
    For starters It takes a lot of willpower for the diet plan and I love a good challenge and with a bet in place it just encourages me more to stick with it to become healthier and I will win!! 😊 How much and how often do I drink plain apple cider vinegar trough out the day? Thanks.

      Hi Carlene,
      When dieting it is best to start the day by drinking ACV detox, then drink 2 tablespoons ACV 30 minutes before lunch,30 minutes before dinner, and at bedtime. Thanks for trying my diet plan and best of luck with your weight loss and winning the bet.

    Great article. I am also trying to help mainly men with losing belly fat. I can see where this plan would work for that as well. I might just try it myself.
    Thanks for a great plan.

      Hi Glen,
      Thanks for reading my diet plan! I’m still working on making this diet plan have a few more options to mix it up a little more, but honestly I did this diet for 2 weeks successfully lost 5 lbs each week. The problem is, I gain what I lost back on the weekends. Although, I don’t need to lose 10 lbs. anyway. 5 lbs. is enough for me. I just wanted to prove to myself that it would work. Now my daughter and boyfriend are going to put it to the test for a month. You should join their challenge.. I might be fun. They posted comments below.
      Thanks for stopping by and watch for more great articles coming soon.
      I wish you the best of luck and hope you enjoy my diet if you give it a try.

    Devara, my boyfriend swears by apple cider vinegar. Funny you should have it in this plan. This looks like a very cleansing plan. Is it a detox too? Just curious. I feel like I need a detox. Thanks. Bev

      Hello Beverly,
      Thanks for visiting! If its detox you are after, this is the perfect diet plan for you. The ACV morning detox takes about 1 to 1 1/2 hours to start detoxing. The 1st day of doing the detox is usually pretty fast acting. By day 3 you should feel cleansed and renewed. The cucumber, lemon, & ginger water is also a detox. It will replenish your body and give your metabolism a boost. It has almost replaced coffee in my diet..
      I think you will really like the results from both of the detox drinks. Then substitute meals with the smoothies and V-8 and get amazing results!
      Best of luck and come back for more great articles.
      Thanks, Devara
