View Full Version : I need to lose weight fast!
09-29-2005, 03:51 PM
Help! I have a major career opportunity in about a week and a half and I need to look and sound my best. I'm 15 and I need to lose about 10 pounds of fat and I have a little bit of acne. I am also a singer and so I need to have a clear throat, no mucas. What is the quickest, yet still healthful, way to lose weight? I personally don't care how what I would have to cut out or what I would have to eat. I have heard about fasts. Will that work?
I have been doing the raw diet for about two weeks, I did cut out most nuts, and I don't eat a ton of food. I do not exercise and so I need some help with that also!
If anyone could help that would be great!!! :)

Have you studied up on The Master Clense. There is lots of talk about it here but I have not tried it so cant comment. 10 Lbs does not seem a lot so maybe you will not loose the opportunity that you mention just because of that.

You sound very desperate. Just sit back and take a deep breath. It's not healthy to loose that fast (trust me, i know) and you should not get into that pattern of htinking...please don't. Do you NEED to lose these 10lbs that fast? Actually, eating a good amount of calories and exercising with raw will do wonders and when your body's ready it'll drop the weight if you need to. The first few weeks your body is detoxing and will focus on that before weightloss. As for fasting, it is good to cleanse and detox and for spiritual reasons, but to me doing it in the desperate mindframe that you seem to be in to loose weight isn't a good reason and can kind of set you up for failure. Perhaps if you DO want to fast, do raw for a little while more though. For calories, I wasn't eating a lot at all even at raw, and no matter what (raw or SAD) you'll hold on to the calories you do consume and bumping them up helped me lose weight fast.

I lose a lot of weight on my three day juice fasts. I fast on green juices from celery, cucumber and zuchinni. I also drink 4 oz of wheatgrass juice a day. This gives me plenty of nutrition. I usually do colon cleansing at the same time, an enema or a colonic. My 3 day juice fasts leave my skin radiant and glowing. I never feel more beautiful, and they keep my weight down.

You can probably put together or buy an outfit that can make you seem a little skinnier for your interview/audition. 10 lbs isn't much in trying to have that skinner "illusion." Black is a good color to look smaller, especially if you don't have all that much to lose anyway. Wear something that hides the places that you think you need work on and that flatters the places that you like.
I hope all works out well for you! :)

I don't feel comfortable recommending fasts or "quick weight loss" ideas to minors without their parents' knowledge. However, you said you've been on raw food for two weeks, so I imagine you are seeing some good results already? Upping the exercise is *always* helpful. The easiest way is to take a brisk walk for an hour each day, or maybe two 1/2 hour sessions. Swing your arms while you walk. Drink pure water. (It will also help your skin! :D )
Along with Luna's ideas, try wearing heels as high as you can and still walk naturally. Work on your posture (correct posture can make you appear to be many lbs. lighter). Wear clothing that fits *properly* (too tight or too loose add lbs.). One color from top to bottom is very slimming, as are uncluttered, collar-less, deep "v" neck tops, while long skinny earrings slim the face.
Most of all: SMILE. Be CONFIDENT. BEST OF LUCK! :D :D :D

Try juice fasting it should help you out quite a bit. Do you have a juicer? fresh juice is the best but if you are totally desperate store bought juice will do. Dillute the juice with a little bit of water. Also Make sure you buy UNSWEETEND juice! Avoid drink products with splenda or aspartame in them as they can actually make you gain weight. Also avoid chewing gum(lots of aspartame). Make sure u drink 8 glasses of water a day in addition to the juice. This is the fastest way to lose weight, mind you most of it will be toxins and water weight but you will definetly look slimmer. When you end the fast DO NOT gorge on tons of food, slowly incorperate solid foods back into your diet, start with fruits and veggies. As for the acne, stop using lotions and creams and cleansers on your face. All you need to wash your face is a bit of honey, unpasturized honey is the best and you can probably find it at a health food store. I know it seems crazy to wash your face with honey lol but trust me it works. Good luck to you :)
