    Faster and more effective than what? You haven't said anything about what you've done. You can't give vague questions and expect solid, pinpoint answers.

    If the goal is not long-term weight loss then go keto to lose glycogen and water stored in the muscle. Go to a sauna to sweat excess water. Drink a lot.

  • @IdriK agree but I’m going to speculate that OP is on a short term crash “diet” and that 2kg lost so far is already surely water weight

  • BTW to help reduce water weight, avoid sodium and keep carbs low for a couple days before the “weigh in”

You can adopt a juicing diet or fast with exercise.

1lb of body fat has 3500 calories (~8000cal/kg), so losing calories and not replacing them would be the quickest option.

I recommend erring on the side of caution, as I often hear people say to see a doctor before doing this (perhaps diabetes is a concern here), although I'm skeptical of the need to do that, as we adapted to have days without food.

If your body goes into ketosis after some time, you will have increased vision and other senses, because your body is preparing you to find more food.

If you take this route with exersise, you may want to have a protein supplement after workouts to avoid muscle loss.

Note - too much sugar or carbohydrates will kick you out of ketosis as well as very large amounts of protein. Try to keep sugar and carbs under 20g/day


You have to avoid eating all junk and processed foods. Consume food which have less calorie and exercise daily, this would help you decrease your weight.
