Ten kilos is a lot of weight to lose in two short weeks. Even though surgery and diet pills are among the solutions that people resort to who want to lose so much weight in such a short time, you can also achieve it by changing your eating habits and your habits in general, which is of course healthier. It is important to note that a diet that allows you to lose this much weight is not very conventional and you should discuss your intentions with a doctor before starting.
You should also note that regardless of what this article suggests, it is not possible to lose 10 pounds in 2 weeks without severely damaging your health. If you wanted to lose 20 kilos of fat in 2 weeks, you would have to achieve a deficit of 4,500 kcal per day, which means that in addition to not eating anything for 2 weeks you would have to run 25 km per day (in practice you would only need to run 8 km per day without eating anything, because part of your weight loss would be water and muscle).
1.Drink only water.
Water cleanses your system, flushes out excess toxins and helps you lose weight. Plus, water is calorie-free, making it a much better choice than sugary drinks. You might even limit yourself to only drinking water and your chances of losing weight will multiply. If you need to drink something tasty once in a while, drink unsweetened tea.
You should follow this advice 24/7, not just before you exercise. You can also drink a cup of black coffee (or with a dash of skimmed milk). The caffeine it contains will stimulate you and you will force even more during your exercises .
It has been proven that water can also increase your metabolism in addition to making you feel fuller. Recent studies have shown that drinking two glasses of cold water can increase your metabolism by 40% for 15-20 minutes. People who participated in this study lost about 8 pounds over a period of 3 months by drinking only water .
2.Eliminate junk food from your diet.
Completely. A person on a standard diet can usually afford to succumb to junk food once or twice without major consequences. But when you set yourself the goal of extreme and rapid weight loss, junk food should be put aside completely. Stay away from fatty, overly rich foods and those with a lot of sugar.
Avoid fatty foods as well as those that contain a lot of sugar. Stay away from anything that is batter-based, fried, chocolate-covered, wrapped, or filled and preserved in sugar.
Be careful to read the labels. Even foods like yogurt and granola bars can be loaded with sugar. Although many people think these are healthy foods, they are not.
3.Avoid white carbs.
All foods like pasta and cookies are filled with simple carbs that are actually sugar in disguise. These little baddies raise your insulin levels, help store fat and make you fat. If you want to lose weight, stop eating processed carbs, which means no more white rice, bread, and potatoes, or cookies, cakes, donuts, chips, and ice cream .
The best thing would be to stop eating carbohydrates at all. Let’s be honest: it’s almost impossible to lose 10 pounds in 2 weeks. To put your body in a state of ketosis (that is to say a state in which your body feeds on stored fat and not on glucogen, because there is no more), you will have to drastically reduce the quantities of carbohydrates that you absorb, or even no longer absorb any at all.
In addition to avoiding sweets, you’ll want to cut out all starchy vegetables (potatoes, squash, carrots), whole grains (including quinoa and brown rice), and sugary fruits like bananas, oranges, and apples On top of that, the feeling of hunger makes you want to fall back into your old habits. By consuming healthy foods all the time, you can better control your cravings for junk food. When you feel full, you make better decisions.
4.Throw yourself on the negative calories .
Whether negative calories are actually negative is still up for debate. According to the theory, some foods take so much energy to digest that eating them actually burns more calories than those foods contain. And even if you don’t burn calories eating these foods, they won’t give you any health benefits.
As for vegetables, eat more asparagus, beets, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, cucumber, garlic, green beans, lettuce, onions, radishes, spinach, turnips and zucchini.
As for fruits, consume blueberries, melons, cranberries, grapefruits, Spanish melons, lemons, limes, oranges, mangoes, papayas, strawberries, raspberries, tomatoes, clementines and watermelons.
5.Choose lean proteins and eat plenty of vegetables.
Instead of beef and pork, prefer lean meats such as chicken or even fish. Eating fish is especially beneficial, as the fatty acids it contains will provide your body with the oils it needs and reduce your need for fatty foods .
Don’t skimp on the vegetables. At breakfast, lunch, dinner, eat it. They’re packed with nutrients, usually low in calories or sugar (but again forget the potatoes), and you stay full. The road to weight loss is paved with vegetables.
6.Choose your diet very carefully.
It is a fact that this kind of diet can work in the short term. If what you want is to lose a lot of weight quickly and gain it back later without any problems, this kind of fad diet is for you. Just know that in general these diets are not healthy and their effects do not last in the long term.
One of the trending diets right now is the juice diet and indeed any liquid diet. These diets offer quick results, but they are difficult to stick to long term and it is not advisable to follow them for too long. If you’re desperate, take an interest in them, but take the advice they give you with a grain of salt.
