The 7 day diet for quick weight loss, a complete plan to start lose weight

This diet is not too restrictive for weight loss, as it consists of three meals and two snacks a day, so it is very easy to follow.

Although the best way for weight loss is to change habits and lose weight gradually, it is not a bad idea to start the process towards a better and healthier life with a diet.

When we start to take care of ourselves, we see that losing weight is really very difficult, since it is hard to get the numbers off the scale, especially if we have a few kilos to spare.

So maybe it would be good to start a one-week diet to lose weight and speed up the process. To do this, today in THE OBJECTIVE we tell you what is the diet regime of the dietetic days of the nutritionist Cheryl Forberg, collected by Shape.

Before you start you should know this is not an overly restrictive diet, as it consists of three meals and two snacks a day, plus each dish contains a balance of 45% carbohydrates, 30% protein and 25% healthy fats. And as for beverages, Forberg recommends coffee, tea and water.

All this should be combined with moderate physical exercise. Perhaps half an hour a day would be enough to get you started.
