what is an easy way to lose weight in 2 weeks?
i have a little over 2 weeks to lose up to 10 pounds. im 14 and heard that sit ups are useless. are they? and any other info about weight loss i would really appreciate:) also: its mostly in the stomach area that i need weight loss in.
1 Dietary control and exercise. It’s true what they say – all you need to do is watch what you eat, and expend more energy than you consume. It’s really that simple. You can quit reading this list now, you now know everything you need to know and didn’t need to fork over $500 for the privilege of me telling you the secret of losing weight. You don’t need to read a 4,000 page book, you don’t have to buy a tape series, you don’t need to stay up late at night to watch infomercials to understand this basic premise. It’s 100% true.
2 Change your lifestyle. If you’re calling this a “diet,” then you’re going to gain all the weight back (and more) within a few months of losing it. Diets do not work. Diets are temporary. When you change your dietary lifestyle, however, you’re changing your habits – and you’re putting yourself on track for long-term / continued success and weight maintenance. Don’t ever tell anybody you’re on a diet – ever. I’m speaking from experience, here – a reformed low-carber. Worked out well for a while, but ultimately failed because my entire lifestyle didn’t change (permanently).
3 Join an online support group. In my case, I created my own – FatBlasters. It’s essential that you not feel alone, and reaching out to friends (new or old) is typically a smart move. I just heard about PeetTrainer, but didn’t know about it when I began down the road to weight loss. You have to know that others are out there for moral support – they know things that you couldn’t possibly know, and they’ve probably been “in your shoes” at some point in the past (or present). Share stories, laughter, tears, successes, and failures – share them. There are thousands of communities out there, so keep looking until you find the one that fits you.
4 Take before and after photos. I know it sucks to see yourself as a chunky monkey (sorry, that’s what I called myself – if only to get myself motivated to meet my weight loss goal). However, there’s no easier way to illustrate your progress. The “after” photos are far more fun to capture and share, admittedly. Find yourself on Flickr! It’s good to see yourself how others see you. Do you like how you look? In many ways, Flickr helped me lose weight.
5 Hire a substitute teacher. Don’t reach for the brands you know and love immediately – or without thinking first. Eggs are “good” for you, but consider using egg substitutes instead (in fact, many restaurants will let you order lower calorie foods). There are countless “lower” alternatives for you to try. If something different doesn’t taste good, by all means – find a better substitute, or eat less of the original. In some cases, the substitute may be worse for you than the regular version of the product. The good news is, healthier choices are silently replacing their “normal” counterparts – and they taste just as nice.
6 Start reading labels. I know it sucks, but you have to do it – and there’s no way to avoid this tip. If you don’t know what you’re putting in your mouth, you’re flying blind. Don’t assume, either – triple-check the ingredients list and serving sizes. You must rely on yourself for this; nobody else is going to be able to lose the weight or do the math for you. It’s not that complicated a task, but it will require effort. If nothing else, just pay attention to the calorie count.
7 What’s so funny about bovines? If you like cheese, you must buy the Laughing Cow brand, and keep several of the suckers in stock at all times. The individually-wrapped wedges make for excellent snacks, and are wonderful when melted over just about anything edible. I’d be careful about straight-up American cheese, though – it’s oil, but not necessarily as good for you as (say) a slice of cheddar would be. I have yet to find something as calorie-light and filling as Laughing Cow (I don’t know how they do it).
8 Tell your family. You’re not going to lose the weight alone, even if you ARE alone in losing the weight. If you’ve got a family at home, talk to them about it – initially, not incessantly. Let them know what you’re going to do, and that you want (and need) their support. If you don’t let them know, you’re running the risk of them inadvertently sabotaging your efforts. You want them to help you get to your goal(s). You want them to share in your happiness when you’ve made it past a certain mark. Who knows? Maybe some of your new habits will rub off on them and they’ll become healthier people, too?
How can I slim down in 2 weeks? Not lose weight as such, but be smaller!?
I’m in a fashion show in 2 weeks time (for charity) and I’m worried I won’t fit in the dress they’ve picked! It’s for the bridal section. It’s a wedding dress (really) with a boned corset top. It was very tight when I first tried it and unfortunately I’m one of those people whose weight fluctuates quite a lot. I could do with losing 2-3 inches+ from my stomach/waist in 2 weeks.
A friend had suggested the “juicing diet” but will this work for me? I don’t need to lose weight, just inches. I don’t want the kind of diet that will take the weight straight off my breasts as that isn’t going to help me!
By not wanting to lose weight but lose inches, I mean I’m looking for ways to stop bloating, water retention, etc. Not looking for a lecture on how I should have known about this weeks ago! (Which actually, I didn’t.) I found out last week and have bad hormones that make me bloat and retain water. But thanks.
And a genuine thank you to everyone else!
Still isn’t healthy, no matter how you look at it, but the best thing you can do to drop five to ten pounds or so, (two or three inches is a lot), is a mild diuretic added to your diet SHORT TERM. Leek broth, (buy leeks, cook them down, drink the broth, eat the leeks) works wonders for french women! Basically, don’t stop drinking water because this will actually make you retain more, but pulling the excess water out of your system and reducing inflammation in your body is the quick fix you’re looking for. Look into the Percone Promise. Great book and a healthier process. Good luck with that dress, and just promise that you’ll eat after!
How to lose weight in 2 weeks?
i really dont want to hear how unhealthy it is cause i already know i just would like a way to lose 15 to 20 pounds of fat in 2 weeks. Also what is the most weight you have lost in 2 weeks?
I would try this workout. At the same time you will be gaining muscule and burning fat. So its awesome.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED: Two 5 pounds weights.
* means one 5 pound weight in each hand.
If you don’t have two 5 pound weights try using water bottles full of water.
*20 Bench Press x3
20 squats x3
*20 side arm lifts x3
20 crunches x3
20 push-ups x3
*20 lunges x3
20 leg lifts x3
Walk for 30 mins
Stretching before your workout helps you not to pull a muscule during your workout.
Stretching after your workout helps you not be AS sore afterward.
I try to do this everyday, but I’m sure you would get results doing this only 2-4 days a week. I recomend everyday.
Eat 1500 calories a day and drink 8 glasses of water daily.
You will lose weight and tone up!
I’ve lost 6 pounds and I’ve only been doing it for a week!
You can do it! I know you can!
You will be sore. And it will hurt but you can do it.
Don’t be scared to add more excercises of more reps.
Hope this works for you!
School Starts In 2 Weeks, Lose Weight?
So yes, school starts back up for me in 2 weeks. August 20th. I will finaly be a SENIOR :} muahaha.
Anyways, I kinda wanna lose some weight, im not fat or anything but I wouldn’t mind being more…toned? What could i do to just get a tighter stomache?
Well, lucky lucky you. School starts on the 17th for me. :p
Well, you really should have started a few weeks earlier, but yeah, summer vacation gets a buncha people going and takes up time for studying, and exercising. You can still start now, and have a fit body in a few weeks if you make an exercise work out plan. Just eat healthy, exercise at least 2-3 times a day by doing crunches, push-ups, pull-ups, weight lifting, or jogging/running a track. This will help you get toned in no time. But, everything takes time, so you can start whenever your schedule is free.
Hope this helps!
