Weight loss is a long term goal among most people. Rapid weight loss, while a bit unhealthy, can be a short term goal for special events. However don¡¦t wait until the week before the event to start your weight loss efforts.

Detoxifying the body is a good way to start a rapid weight loss endeavor. The organs in the body that help expel waste should be in top form. The kidneys, liver and colon all remove waste from the body.

Eating strawberries, raspberries and cherries helps detoxify the body naturally. These fruits contain ellagic acid, which helps absorb free radicals. Berries also contain vitamin C and E to help detoxify the liver.

Grapes help improve artery functioning, keeping blood flow healthy throughout the body. Prunes help cleans the colon, getting things moving. Add fiber to the mix and weight loss is sure to follow.

Likewise, cranberries cleanse the kidneys which help them function fully and eliminate toxins from the body most efficiently. Cranberries contain proanthocyanidin which are antioxidants.

The most effective detoxifier is water. All of those toxins have to be flushed out by some method and water is perfect, since that is one of its primary jobs. You also avoid dehydration which is very dangerous.

While detoxifying, you should also be decreasing your caloric intake by 250 to 500 calories a day. Increasing your calorie burn rate by adding exercise will boost your efforts even more. Be careful not to cut calories too much as the body will slow the metabolism, assuming that food is limited and begin storing it as fat.

Eliminate carbohydrates from your diet for the short term and refined sugars for the long term. White rice, bread and potatoes all add weight. Include whole grain rice in your diet as it adds fiber. Other sources of fiber include broccoli, apples, pears, apricots as well as high fiber cereals.

Plan your meals and snacks, counting calories in order to hit your target intake. Food packaging and recipes will help you identify and count calories. For obvious reasons, don¡¦t make unhealthy snacks readily available.

Spread your calories out among three meals and two snacks. This keeps you from getting extremely hungry and binging on unhealthy foods. It keeps your metabolism high and burning calories faster.

Once you have gotten past the first few days of changing your eating habits, it gets easier and easier. Eventually, fast food restaurants will not smell appealing. In fact, they will probably smell rather disgusting. That is when you know you are on track to rapid weight loss!
