How to Lose 16 Pounds in a Week

By Eric Simkind

Recently, someone asked me how they can lose 16 pounds in a week. After my initial shock wore off, I realized that this person wasn't joking. She really wanted to know how to lose 16 lbs in 1 week.

I must say that I was astonished to learn that she is not alone. Many people have an exaggerated notion of how much weight they can lose. What is worse is that they're prepared to go to extreme lengths in order to fulfill this mission.

Let's make it plain: I do not believe that it is possible to lose 16 pounds in 1 week. It's just not possible to create the necessary calorie deficit unless you submit yourself to extreme conditions and I mean prisoners of war camp like conditions. It's not even healthy to try to achieve this weight loss as you will undoubtedly submit yourself to a great deal of caloric deprivation which can wreak havoc on your metabolism.

Where does that leave you?

You need to abandon such notions as losing a huge amount of weight in a short time (and 16 is just a number I've run across, it could easily be a little more or a little less) and follow a sound eating and exercise plan which can yield a good weight loss rate which will be easy to maintain over time.

One such method is carb rotation. With carb rotation you can achieve an impressive weight loss without depriving yourself of food and without demolishing your metabolic rate. Carb rotation has become quite popular recently as more and more people discover how well it works. If you're looking to lose weight in a sound way and wish to keep the excess weight off far into the future, you should consider using the carb rotation diet.
