6 super-fast ways to lose weight in 3 days
Weight loss should be done slowly to be sustainable, but I have also read reports that it’s imperative to kick-start your diet by seeing some fast results as this can encourage us to keep going.

Eat what you normally do but sweat 3 times a day for 30 minutes. This could be in a sauna, by running or walking very fast, or even between the sheets – just make sure you put some effort in and keep those beads of sweat flowing for at least 20 – 30 minutes.
One of the best ways to lose weight always has been (and always will be) running. You don’t necessarily need to go super-fast all the time, just fast enough to work up a good sweat, as with the diet buster above.

We always incorporated things that are really healthy but also user-friendly,” says Pinks trainer Gregory Joujon-Roche.
