Is there an upcoming event, wedding, vacation, photoshoot or party for which you want to look your best? And if you’re wondering how can you lose those ‘few extra pounds’ that’s stopping you from looking your best, try out these simple tricks:

1. Consume Low-Carb And High-Protein Diet- This can help you lose several pounds. Research has also reported that a low-carb, high-protein diet is effective for weight loss. Also, loading up on proteins can help curb your appetite for a long time and boost your metabolism. Try to drastically cut down or reduce all starchy carbs and sugars throughout the week. Instead, opt for low-carb foods like vegetables, eggs, lean meats, and fish.

2. Try Lifting Weights And High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)- Needless to say, physical activity is one of the best ways to burn fat and lose weight. But resistance training and lifting weights can result in significant weight loss and also help maintain muscle mass and strength. One study has found that HIIT can aid weight loss better than regular exercise.

3. Try Intermittent Fasting- Research has reported that intermittent fasting is one of the simplest yet effective ways to lose weight quickly. Not only does it force you to reduce your calorie intake but also limit your eating to a short duration. If you plan on combining exercise with fasting, it is recommended that you fast at a different time than your exercise.

4. Stay Active Throughout The Day- To burn extra calories and lose weight quickly, it is important to increase your everyday activity. One study has reported that being physically active throughout the day, even when you aren’t working out, plays a vital role in weight loss.

5. Take Epsom Salt Bath- The Kardashians' dietician recommends that you take an Epsom salt bath the night before the event. The trick is to add 12 pounds of Epsom salt to hot bath water, soak it for about 20 minutes and take bath with it before going to bed. This method is believed to help get rid of water weight quickly.

6. De-bloating is Key- To look great in your special dress, indulge in a daily dose of probiotics and digestive enzymes that aid digestion and help get rid of bloating. Also, make it a habit to chew your food properly, eat slowly and avoid fizzy drinks. You could also try adding cucumber to your water. Cucumber is a diuretic that can reduce bloating.
