So, you want to know how to lose 20 pounds in one month.
We have been warned that losing weight quickly is not safe.
This statement is actually not true.
While there is some level of truth to this (there’s always an extreme to every situation), for the most part, this is false.
How to Lose 20 Pounds In A Month
For one, losing weight slowly is a motivational killer, TRUST ME!
Imagine this, you cut out all your favorite foods, drinks (alcohol for me), desserts, and now you have to start exercising consistently in addition to all this.
Now you’ve reached the end of what seemed like the never-ending week only to find out you lost 1 POUND!
Wouldn’t you rather see 5 or 6 pounds knocked off the scale?
Of course you would!

If you want to lose 20 pounds in 30 days, then make this your number one priority because it is THE MOST important one!
Before I go into too much detail, you’re probably wondering what a carb detox is.
It’s when you eliminate carbohydrates completely out for one week.
Yes, I did say seven days!
I also did say this was a CHALLENGE.
If it was easy, everybody would already be doing it.
Let me assure you, it is possible.
It’s challenging for sure.
However, try comparing this to losing a family member, raising kids on your own, losing your job, or going through a divorce.
Compared to that, detoxing from carbs for a week is a walk in the park.
Ok, so then what would I eat for that week?
Lean protein and leafy greens for the most part.
Obviously, you would be detoxing from sugar as well (sugars are carbs).

I’ve discussed how important intermittent fasting is many times.
I really can’t say it enough!
Using this eating technique is an extremely beneficial way to help you lose weight.

The one I follow and recommend is the 16-8 method.
You would simply eat for 8 hours, and fast for 16 hours.
Here’s an example of a few ways to schedule this…
