You must be thinking that it is impossible to lose 20 pounds in just two weeks, but we are here saying that you in fact can! We will not be talking about wraps or “magic” pills, but about small sacrifices that come in a combination with some specific techniques.
Rather than changing your lifestyle completely, we will give you a
diet plan combined with exercise strategies that fit your lifestyle.
You need to choose at least 4 of the tips that you are going to read
below, and make sure that you implement them in your schedule for 14
days. In case you are feeling a little more ambitious,
you can choose more than four. The more you choose, the better.
Remember that you must not stall this process, because if you start
today, in just 7 days you will feel much better and lighter and in 14
days you will reach your goal.
Fruits smoothies, light beers and energy drinks contain about 100
calories. But this drinks do not possess the ability to substitute 100
calories of food, so that makes them ineffective in that regard. There
are other drinks that are high in carbohydrates and sodium, which will
make your body retain water.
Water contains 0 calories and carbs, almost no sodium at all, which
makes it the perfect drink for losing weight. It will also flush out
the excess of water from your body and it will improve your metabolism.
If you don’t like the taste of water, you can always add some mint
leaves or lemon wedges into it.
2.You must avoid pasta and white bread
If you decide to cut out all white grain products like spaghetti,
white rice and sandwich rolls, you will instantly slim down. The reason
for that is because these foods cause bloating especially around your
stomach. Carbohydrates are very dangerous for your weight because the
body digests them quickly, which will make you feel hungry after a short
period of time.
Instead of replacing them with white-grain bread products that are
healthier, remove them completely from your diet and eat vegetables
instead. Instead of eating chips and chicken sandwich, eat carrots and a
chicken salad. Vegetables contain complex carbs, which our body digests
slowly, which makes you full for much longer.
3.Do cardio workouts for half an hour every day
Every workout that will get your heart rate up will make you burn
calories quickly. But, if you choose a cardio exercise that will engage
multiple muscles simultaneously, you will be able to burn more calories.
You need to consider cardio kickboxing, boot-camp workouts and
spinning. Just 30 minutes of any of these exercises will burn up to 300
calories, while toning your legs, core and arms at the same time. You
will be able to burn even more calories if the workout that you do
incorporates interval training. This means that you need to alternate
between short bursts of intense cardio, with slower activity.
4.Drink coffee 60 minutes before your workout
This rule is an exception to the first tip that we wrote earlier.
Just a cup of coffee with skim milk will seriously energize your
workout. Because of that, you will be able to burn more calories without
realizing that you are pushing your body harder than you normally do.
5.Have nightly you-on-top sex
It is not as if you need an excuse to hook up with your significant
other every night, but it is a fact that this position can burn fat
very fast. With you being on top it means that you are controlling the
pace and intensity, and if you are more active, you will be able to burn
more calories – up to 144 in just half an hour.
Sex will also pump up the levels of the neurotransmitters that make you feel good.
6.Do 36 lunges and push-ups every other day
These exercises will help you sculpt your muscles and you will have
a more streamlined appearance. You need to do three sets of 12, of each
of these exercises. Lunges work your hips, thighs and butt, while
push-ups will target your upper body.
7.Sleep half an hour longer at night
Those 30 minutes extra, whether you sleep for five or eight hours,
can help you wake up refreshed and you will be able to make better food
choices. This means that you will not get up and go straight for the
sugary breakfast, and you will feel much more energized and willing to
go to the gym. Eight hours of sleep also makes your metabolism much more
8.Make one food sacrifice
If you cut one food out of your diet, like the chocolate desert
after your lunch/dinner or the chips you have with your lunch, you will
be able to reduce a couple of hundred calories from your diet. This
means less flab and your body will not even notice their absence.
9.Eat salmon for lunch
Salmon contains nutrients that can build muscle tone and it will
give your skin a much healthier glow. There are nutritionists that claim
that by consuming a portion of salmon, your face will immediately look
10.Stand up straight
You must keep your shoulders back, your spine straight and your
belly sucked toward your spine. This will make you appear slimmer and
you will have a more streamlined middle.
11.Do sit-ups and squats
This technique is used by bodybuilders, before their competitions,
because these exercises add definition to your muscles. You need to do 3
sets of twelve of each one of these exercises, in order to tighten your
legs, but and abs.
12.Try the two-week diet
Women make one big mistake, and they are not able to lose weight
because of that. That mistake is that they always overcomplicate things.
When it comes to losing weight, simplicity is always your best friend.
