A: We all have special occasions for which we want to look our best and drop a few pounds to feel really confident. Let’s be clear from the get go: You can’t lose fat in just a week. You can only lose fat by having an ongoing healthy lifestyle, which includes regular exercise and a good, clean diet. But you can lose some water weight in a week. And, believe it or not, water weight can sometimes make you look fatter than actual fat!
