If you weighed something like 400 pounds and joined television's

Biggest Loser program boot camp, you might be able to lose 20 pound

in the first week through (medically supervised) extreme effort

(and because you had so much to lose). Other than something that,

you cannot lose 20 pounds in one week by any natural means.

  • It is impossible. Even if you ran 10 miles every day that whole

    week. Just stick to changing your eating habits and, start doing

    cardio exercise (it is an excellent fat burner) and the weight will

    come off over time.

  • I lost pounds in 1 week by going on the Loss diet. Breakfast: 1

    piece of toast with 1 tablespoon of peanut butter (but not if you

    have a peanut allergy). Low fat or fat free cream cheese and a

    glass of milk. Lunch: piece of bread/toast with tuna (no mayo on at

    all), 1 apple/orange/banana and a glass of milk/water Dinner:1

    piece of grilled chicken some fruit and milk/water. This may not be

    a good diet for diabetics. You will be hungry. So, if you don't

    like being hungry this diet is not for you. For weight loss we

    should take less salted food.

  • What you should do is not starve yourself, but watch your

    calories and your starches. Instead of fruit punch have water.

    Instead of a bologna sandwich try a turkey sandwich, and instead of

    chips have some mixed fruit. And you should also tryto maybe go

    walking or jogging for about 30 minutes a day. Or maybe just some

    kind of exercise machine and you'll lose about 20 pounds in no time

    but it will take you a lot longer than one week.

  • Eat breakfast so you have enough energy to go through the day.

    Then do a lot of exercise. 20 push-ups and 50 sit-ups, take a rest,

    20 push-ups, 50 sit-ups, so on and so forth.

  • It is simply not possible to lose twenty pounds in one week by

    any natural means.


Short of surgery and liposuction - that isn't possible.

You really can't. You didn't gain 20 pounds in a week, don't expect

to lose it in a week. At a healthy rate, it would take 10 to 20

weeks to lose that much.

Mainly impossible. It is slightly possible, but you would have to

exercise 2-3 times a day and go for 35 - 60 minutes on each

exercise period. Drinking soda, eating junk food, candies &

desserts while attempting to lose weight will immediately earn you

back 200 - 1,000 + calories (depends on what it is). Junk food is

cheetos, potato chips, honey buns and things like that. But, I hope

this helps. Good Luck!
