How to lose weight in 2 weeks
With winter and the holidays fast approaching we all want to get in shape or at least look better for the family gathering that we will have to attend. And because of the fact that shedding fat is not easy at all, you should start early, just to make sure that you have time to get it right. But because of the foul weather that sets in this time of the year, even convincing yourself to get going can be hard work.
You need to choose a weight loss plan that actually works and will help you achieve results and that takes time, because you have to do a little research before you pick one.
I personally have tried many diets, but without no or only short term results. If some told you that the key to successful and long term weight loss is a permanent lifestyle change, then he or she was right. So allow me to tell you what you have to do in order to lose between 5-10 pounds in 2 weeks.
Know what you want
There’s no use in talking about weight loss if you don’t know what you want to achieve. So set your sights on something, it can be anything from reaching a certain weight to fitting into your old dress that you like so much.
Other ways to lose weight in 2 weeks
Everyone can lose weight in 2 weeks, but what you need to realize is that the only way you will achieve results is through sacrifice, sweat and dedication. This means that you should not give up when the road ahead gets difficult.
You must also set yourself a realistic goal of losing a maximum amount of 5lbs a week. Otherwise, you are at risk of being disappointed or seriously damaging your health. So don’t try anything too dangerous, just lose that extra fat the right way.
First of all, whatever you do, always eat when mealtime comes, because by skipping them all you will do is make your body store more fat, in other words, exactly the opposite of what you want to. And don’t believe people who tell you that they’ve lost weight by starving themselves, because if they did, they also ruined their health in the process. Your body will only work properly if it gets the vitamins and nutrients it needs.
You can start by doing a full body detoxification, but be careful, because it usually means that you have to follow a very intense and strict diet, in other words, a daily intake of only 500 calories and not everyone can function with such a low amount. So first of all you must visit your doctor, in order to make sure that it’s safe for you to do so and you won’t cause irreparable damage to your health.
Tips for a 2 week weight loss
There is a weight loss method that doesn’t require much on your behalf, except patience and determination, and is called eating less and burning more calories. In other words, by reducing your daily calorie intake by 500 and increasing the level of your physical activities you will be able to shed between 7 and 10 pounds over this 2 week period. If you want to be successful, you need to follow a low glycemic, fiber rich diet and an exercise routine that will allow you to build muscle mass and be fit.
There’s a saying: mother knows best. Well, as it turns out, in this case it’s true, because remember how she always used to tell you to eat your vegetables? You should have listened to her, because they would have slowed down the whole weight gaining process somewhat. But it’s never too late to do the right thing, so start eating foods that are rich in fibers, antioxidants and enzymes, because they will help you burn fat, they will give your immune system a boost and they will also prevent certain diseases.
But before you do any of this you need to calculate your body mass index or BMI. You can do this by writing down your height and weight in inches and multiplying in by 703. Chances are that you won’t be happy with the resulting number. But don’t worry, because as you advance with your weight loss plan it will drop down to a healthier, normal score of 20 to 25.
There are three categories of overweight people: those that can’t be bothered to lose weight, those who tried, but didn’t use a method that actually works and those who didn’t have the patience to go all the way.
The problem these days is that because of our busy lives we all want to shed that extra weight as fast as possible, without thinking about the consequences. But if you really want to lose weight and you also want to keep it off afterwards, you must know that this process takes time and won’t happen as quickly as you want it to. So be patient and persevere, eat healthy and exercise daily, because that is the key to a successful weight loss!
The reason why you are overweight is because somewhere down the line you stopped taking care of yourself, either because of lack of time or energy, but no matter what the reason, the result is the same: you have a lot of extra fat that you want to get rid of. But, in order to lose weight and do so effectively, you need to follow a weight loss plan that can do so much more than just promise you results.
Just make sure that you pick one that does not require drastic changes to your current way of life. Don’t even think of losing 20 pounds in 2 weeks, because it will have very serious health implications, if you can even accomplish such a ridiculous goal. But just in case you decide to give it a shot, I should tell you that you will not be able to hang on to your new figure in the long run, because quick weight loss methods don’t work like that.
If you want to lose weight once and for all, you need to take it slow and make lasting changes to your current way of life. This means eating healthy and exercising for the rest of your life.
A lot of people are overweight and want to do something about their current situation, but they don’t always know what. So if you are one of them, allow me to guide you to a quick and effective weight loss. First of all you need to change your lifestyle into a healthy one for the rest of your life or until it is safe for you to do so, from a medical point of view. Then you need to start drinking 6 oz. of water for every pound of weight.
This means that if you weigh 1500lb, you will have to drink 96 ounces of water every day. And beside this, you will also need to drink to keep yourself hydrated while working out. This means a daily supply of 1-1/2 quarts plus.
You also need to choose an aerobics exercise that you like and keep doing it for a minimum of 45 minutes in a way that will make you work up a sweat and keep you that way all through your session. In other words, you have to get your heart rate up and keep it there. And of course, you need to warm up before, in order to make sure that you won’t pull a muscle or something and you also need to cool down, once you are done exercising.
