How to lose weight in 2 weeks – 5 Expert Tips


How to lose weight in 2 weeks you ask? Well if you are hoping to lose 20 pounds in the next two weeks, let me just assure you that will not happen. Keeping weight loss at 2 pounds a week is safe and ideal, but for a brief period you can push it to 4 pounds. My goal here is to help you lose 8 pounds in the next two weeks and hopefully help you keep losing weight even after the two weeks. Enough chitchat, let’s teach you how to lose weight in 2 weeks.

5 powerful tips to help you lose weight in 2 weeks:

Eliminate junk food – That’s right, no more junk foods for the next 2 weeks. You can’t keep this up forever as not being able to eat our favorite food for months at a time is unrealistic. But it’s only 2 weeks and this short trial may even help you construct a more sustainable, healthier diet plan for the future.

Lean meats – Fresh tuna, salmon, sardines, and chicken will replace beef and pork in your diet. Low fat and rich in antioxidants they are dieticians’ favorite food.

Exercise (aerobic activities) – You may choose one of the following or perform them in combination; walking, power-walking, jogging, cycling, aerobic classes, running machine, and rowing machine. But swimming is by far the best aerobic exercise because you will burn more calories per hour than any other aerobic exercise. Invest at least 30 minutes a day in aerobic exercise but preferably 50 minutes. Do this 5 days a week but do not use the two rest days consecutively.

Pump Iron – Weight training will help you build lean muscle and raise your metabolism, helping you lose weight even when you are asleep. Aerobic exercises burn through calories very fast but your metabolism drops as soon as you’ve finished exercising. Adding lean muscles will not only facilitate more efficient fat burning but will ensure the increase in metabolism to be sustained throughout the day and night. I recommend weight training 3 to 4 days a week, 30 to 50 minutes per session.

Rest well – This is the most important rule you should follow. You should sleep 7 to 8 hours a day at proper hours, because the lack of sleep is detrimental to losing weight. After weight training, rest the trained muscles for 24 hours. In the mean time, you may train other muscles or perform aerobic exercises.

Everything around us has evolved and so has the science behind weight loss techniques. The 5 tips I offer here have only scratched the surface of the “new age” weight loss techniques. But for now, I hope I have answered your question on how to lose weight in 2 weeks.
