11 Ways to Look Better (Almost) Instantly

Posted by administrator Friday, August 14, 2009

A great body doesn't happen overnight.

The thing is, a lot of people want to lose 3 dress sizes in 10 days for a wedding or high school reunion. And that just isn't going to happen.

But if you're not looking for extreme weight loss instantly, there ARE some simple things you can do that will make you leaner and help you look better in just a few days.

Here they are:

1. Double the amount of water you drink. This will keep you from being bloated. (You WILL have to urinate more often though)
2. Sleep at least 8 hours a night.
3. Exercise first thing in the morning and you'll have a glow that lasts all day.
4. Strengthen your core muscles with exercises like planks and you'll stand straighter. Having good posture can take ten pounds off your waist and ten years off your looks.
5. Cut out processed carbohydrates. People given a two week challenge with no alcohol and no pre-packed carbs (such as bread) often lose 7 pounds in the first week!
6. Eat every 2 to 3 hours. This will raise your metabolism and give you tons of energy.
7. Eat enough protein. This means at least 30% of your daily calories come from protein.
8. Stick to a proven exercise plan, don't jump from system to system. You'll make faster progress by following a good program for 6 months than you will switching to something new every week.
9. Don't "Start Over On Monday." If you screw up your eating plan on Friday night, don't declare the weekend a bust. You'll just dig a deeper hole to work out of. Admit you made a mistake and get right back on track.
10. Drink a post-workout shake that has the right mix of fast-acting carbs and protein. Your muscles will recover faster and you'll burn more fat. Win-win.
11. Eat enough fat. Healthy fats will help your hair and skin look SO much better. Plus they fuel your body and taste great!

That's it! 11 easy ways to look better almost instantly!
