How to Lose 8 Pounds in 5 Days

So I surpassed my original goal of five pounds in five days; I actually ended up losing almost eight. Weight as of about 6 pm on Friday 7/31 was 245.6, down from 253.2 – a total of 7.6 pounds. Not bad for five days of work. Even better, it was easier to do than I thought it would be. Some takeaways in no particular order:

-You should lose at least 3-5 pounds the first week of ‘dieting’ if you do it right.,
-It wasn’t really that hard to; no excuses for lack of results!
-Of course it wasn’t all fat loss – but I look and feel visibly thinner. My pants are noticeably looser, abs a little tighter – pretty cool.
-It’s a ‘moral’ boost – fast weight loss is motivating, plain and simple!
-My diet was laid out according to basic principles of The Zone. For a simplified version of The Zone, check out this post: The Zone Made Simple. For more explanation and details, buy the book. It’s well worth it.

-For those of you who are fighters or whatnot and are used to cutting weight, eight pounds in five days might not sound like a lot – that’s fine. It was substantial for me – and I didn’t have run in a rubber suit or sit in a sauna or anything crazy to do it.
-I actually only worked out once a day, which is normal for me. So you could say I lost the weight through diet and supplementation alone.
-The Xenadrine I took helped a lot with the immediate weight loss. Consider taking it or a thermogenic supplement of some kind if you’re trying to lose weight and want to reach your goal as fast as possible.
