Can You Really Lose 30 Pounds in 30 days?

Woman Confused by Scale

You’ve probably heard it before: “Lose 30 pounds in only 30 days!” Many online weight loss diets exist, though their quality varies. Of course, some can lose a pound per day - or more - depending upon his or her weight profile. With a balanced and healthy menu plan, consistent weight loss is possible but it must be sustainable for the individual to manage their new weight.

Risk Versus Reward: Unhealthy Weight Loss

Some experience skyrocketed weight loss, presenting a “proof” of 30-days-or-less success stories. However, the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases focuses upon the adverse health effects noticed with quick weight loss. For many, drastic bodyweight change is incredibly unhealthy, and it can also create serious medical problems.

Is There a “Healthy” Weight Loss Rate?

Currently, experts agree upon an accepted two pounds per week loss regimen. This weight loss rate is relatively sustainable, and it isn’t harsh on the body’s natural processes. Healthy food choices are required to sustain such rates, however. Certainly committing to a menu plan will result in immediate weight loss, but the body’s natural processes may slow weight loss as it adapts.

What Methods Work?

Understandably, the body needs time to reduce unwanted weight. Many safe weight loss methods are contingent upon low-calorie diets, regular physical activity and constant weight watching. Fad diets should be avoided, as they may lead to nutritional deficiencies. Strict guidelines adhering, however, the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention reveal consistent weight loss over long term periods. 30 pounds can be lost - though a period of 30 days is both unrealistic and dangerous. Generally speaking, 15 weeks is a more appropriate length of time.

Eating smaller portions is a great way to remove unwanted pounds, as is reducing fatty and sugary foods. Adopting new lifestyles may be difficult at first, but will reduce chance of Type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. A key to long term success is to ignore the claims of fad diets and work with directly with a dietitian or weight loss professional. That way you can lose the weight as the fastest pace your body will allow and you want be frustrated by faulty setbacks.
