How To Lose One Pound Daily With A Simple Routine

There are two things you generally do when want to get rid of a few extra pounds, and those are: sweating into the gym and going on a new diet. But there’s one particular tip to lose weight that researchers have found, and it’s the easiest way to lose one pound daily (more or less) without sweating or starving yourself.

Here’s what researchers found:

Just by drinking 500ml (two glasses) of water before every meal, you can lose up to 10 pounds in 12 weeks.

I know this doesn’t sound too much, and it’s not even close to what you want: to lose one pound daily. Not close, but it’s a start, right?!

How To Lose One Pound Daily

Here’s how I used this tip to drink water before meals and what things I added to my routine to lose one pound daily:

  1. Eat 5 meals per day, one small meal every 2 hours. Get 3 x 200-calorie meals, plus 2 x 300-calorie meals.
  2. Walk one hour, or do 30 minutes of speed walking or jogging daily.
  3. The 300-calorie meals should be taken before and after walking.
  4. Eat your last meal before 6 PM.
  5. Drink one glass of water (250ml) before and after each meal. This will keep you full for longer.
  6. Sleep as early as possible, to avoid night binge eating.

The total calorie intake in a day is around 1200, which is half of the daily recommended calorie intake. So this is not the safest way to lose weight, but hey, if you know any healthy method to lose one pound daily, I am here to take notes. 😉

Here is a 7 day 1200-calorie meal plan example, and here is a daily schedule example:

  • 9 AM: One glass of water + Breakfast (200 calories) + One glass of water;
  • 11 AM: One glass of water + Snack (200 calories) + One glass of water;
  • 1 PM: One glass of water + Lunch (300 calories) + One glass of water;
  • 2 PM: Walking in the park for an hour;
  • 3 PM: One glass of water + Snack (300 calories) + One glass of water;
  • 5 PM: One glass of water + Dinner (200 calories) + One glass of water.

Tip: Don’t weigh yourself every day, but do it at the end of the week. Losing weight is not an exact science, so you’re not gonna lose one pound daily. Today you might lose 1.5 pounds and tomorrow only half pound, but at the end of the week you should be at least 7 pounds lighter.

Let me know in the comment section below if you would try this diet, or if you know or tried before any other diet to lose one pound daily. Stay fit!

If you consider this diet too hard to follow, and think you’ll not gonna stick to it, The Half Day Diet is a more simple and accessible program to lose weight fast. Just give it a try!

In order to lose one pound, your body needs to be at a 3500 calorie deficit. A normal lightly active woman burns anywhere from 1700-2300 calories a day depending on the level of activity. Add exercise on top of that, but you will still not reach 3500 calories. If somehow… Read more »

I lost 1-2 pounds daily on a whole foods plant based diet. MUCH healthier, and safer. It has also been proven to cure most ailments, such as, type 2 diabetes and even progressive cancers. Look up Forks over Knives! Good luck!

I’ve done this and it works!!! I believe it’s the water that helps with the weight loss, and of course several small meals daily and the exercise contributes. Thanks for reminding me


Sorry, your numbers don’t add up! You have to cut 3500 calories to lose a pound. By your premise it would take 3 1/2 days to lose a pound, so best case scenario would be 2 pounds per week.

You should consider that the amount of calories you are supposed to take in are according to your height, weight and age! The recommended calorie intake for my 6.4ft husband is double what I’m suppose to take in because I am way smaller than he is. For him to take… Read more »
