On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I share 5 steps on how to lose water weight in one day.
This includes my personal experience of how I gained 6 pounds in 2 days, and lost it in 1 day.
Yes, during my 2 days of fun in Bermuda, I actually gained 6 pounds.
However, after I returned home, I lost those 6 pounds of weight fast, in just 1 day.
Let’s get into it.
After a quick 2 day vacation to Bermuda, I’m now back home and ready to motivate you to move your body and eat better food.
So let’s start off with this question:
Put your hand up right now if you ate lots of bad food and were lazy over the weekend or holiday?
Well, I’m so guilty of this that I should put two hands up.
But the good news is, that is now behind us, and we can’t change the past.
It’s now time to move forward and forget everything that we just did over the last few days.
In other words, it’s time to get back to Living Lean.
Now, before I share how to lose this weight fast, let me first share a quick story.
When I arrived back home, I weighed myself, just to see where I was at.
I was definitely feeling the effects of drinking too much alcohol, eating a lot of processed high carbohydrate foods, and not moving my body enough.
All of this led me to feeling puffy from retaining a lot of extra water.
After stepping onto the weight scale, I saw that my weight was 183 pounds.
On a daily basis, I typically weigh in at 176-177 pounds.
So this holiday binge led to me gain 6 pounds in just 2 days.
Does this mean I really gained 6 pounds of fat in just 2 days of drinking too much alcohol, eating bad food, and not moving my body?
The 6 pounds was mainly water weight.
So here’s what I did, the day after I got home from vacation, to lose water weight fast and safely:
When I woke up the next morning, the first thing I did was I downed a lot of water.
I also ate a lot of green vegetables with my meals throughout the day.
In addition to eating a lot of vegetables, I also ate a lot of good sources of lean protein.
I also really focused on keeping my sugar intake to a minimum.
Here’s why sugar makes us fat.
It’s important to get your body moving a lot more than you did over the past 2 days.
I did this by going to the gym for a leg workout that was focused on multi-muscle, compound exercises, such as the barbell deadlift.
This was a very similar workout to the Afterburn Effect workouts that I share in my Live Lean Afterburn program.

So that’s what I want you to do.
By following these steps, it will help flush a lot of the stored water weight out of your system, fast.
Again, those 6 pounds that I put on in 2 days was not body fat.
They majority of those 6 pounds would have been water weight.
Think about it.
You would have a hard time gaining 6 pounds of body fat in 2 days.
To gain 1 pound of fat in 1 day, you need to be a calorie surplus of 3500 calories at the end of the day.
So lets look at the math to gain 6 pounds of fat in 2 days:
Based on these calorie calculations, I would have had to eaten on average a surplus of 10,500 calories a day, over and above the amount of calories I burned throughout the day.
If I burned 2,000 calories in a day, I would have had to consume 12,500 calories every day, to gain 6 pounds of fat in 2 days.
It’s obvious that the majority of this 6 pound weight gain was from stored water weight.
Now that we know this, the goal is to get rid of and excrete our body of this stored water water.
Apply these 5 tips to lose water weight and forget everything that you did in the past.
Forget all the bad food, all the alcohol, and all the laziness.
Get back into the swing of things, starting right now.

You can see me and a bunch of other people letting loose at the beach and jumping in the freezing water.
But it was worth it as it was a great setting and I can now say I swam in the ocean on Christmas Day.
Of course this was after consuming a little bit of “liquid courage” to get us motivated.
You can also see me hanging out with Santa’s little helpers 😉and having a little bit of fun as well.
But all in all, this is what I did on my vacation.
I kind of let loose, but now I’m back and I’m getting back to the philosophies of the Live Lean lifestyle.
Like I said, I excreted those 6 pounds of water weight in just one day, so I’m now back down to 177 pounds.
So don’t get discouraged.
If you step on the weight scale right now and it says your weight is way over what you normally are, don’t give up on your journey.
This is not the time to throw your hands up and say…
“Oh no, I can’t do this anymore. It’s going take me forever to lose the extra weight I put on during vacation”.
Remember, the majority of this is just stored water weight.
