Discipline

1.  Disciple: you need to be disciplined…without stressing, and make a commitment to yourself that you (by any means necessary) will defer from your plan to loose weight at least for the next 2 weeks. Ultimately you want to set a goal of at 90 days. After the first 2 weeks it is much easier to follow your plan to lose weight. No excuses. Try to relax and not let it stress you out, stress will only cause your hormones to prevent your body from losing weight/fat.

Meal Plans

2. Meal Plans: creating a meal plan each weekend, cooking the meals ahead will make it less tempting to cheat on your diet and break your discipline. There are many recipe that I have used and written about on here that will make it easier for you to plan your meals. My favorite meal plans to lose weight are made up of protein, healthy fats, and vegetables…with some carbs. To lose weight in 2 weeks, it is best to follow Whole30 grocery list, Ketogenic grocery list, or Alkaline grocery list. They are all healthy, whole, and delicious…you will not feel deprived. If you do not eat enough food, your body will not want to lose weight.

My Fitness Pal iPhone App is good great way to track your food intake.

Exercise

3. Exercise: {or not exercise} let’s face it, the fat and weight will come off exponentially FASTER if you work out and exercise EVERY DAY. But if you have time to spare (hence more than 2 weeks) check out my other posts about losing weight 10-20 pounds within 30 days. What exercises help you lose 20 pounds in two weeks?…you ask. Work out every day, multiple times if possible AM and PM session. You need to perform ‘calorie burning’ exercises.

a. Lift FREE Weights; weights that are not connected to machine, yet any weights are better than none. Just remember, weight resistance training will make losing fat so much easier and faster for your body.

b. Cardio; running is best, yet biking ‘spin class’, walking briskly, and row machine are great alternatives for getting fast results.

c. Caloric burn: depending on your age, weight, height, and timeline….calculate the amount of calories you need to safely burn each day. Calculator or Weight Loss Calculator

One time my mom lost 60 pounds without exercise for a special event and kept it off just by adjusting her choices in food and the timing of each meal. See my next step…

Timing: meals

4. Timing: to speed up your metabolism and lose weight fast you need to eat real food on a regular basis. Preparing food and packing food to go ahead of time is critical for you to eat healthy food every 2-3 hours. Set a timer on your phone or watch, alarm to remind you to eat. Do not eat after 6:30pm for first 2 weeks to give it a bump. Drink water if you feel hungry, see my next step.

Eat every 2-3 hours

  • 7:30 am
  • 9:30 am
  • 11:30 am
  • 1:30 pm
  • 3:30 pm
  • 5:30 pm

Drink Water

5. Water: drink water. Drink only water, your body doesn’t need any other beverage. It speeds up your metabolism, it keeps your energy up, skin looking young and hydrated. Purchase a gallon of water from the grocery store and carry it will you to track if you’ve drank enough water, or purchase a extra large water bottle. You need to at least drink 8-10 glasses of water a day, especially if you are vigorously exercising. You can have green tea or black coffee, yet try to avoid. If you don’t drink enough water, your body will not ‘want’ to lose weight.

Water, only water!

Tip: Drinking HOT WATER speeds up your metabolism! Drink 1 cup of hot water before each meal and 1 cup after each meal.

Sleep

6. Sleep: you need to sleep to loose weight. Your body also needs sleep to re-cover if you have been doing the right amount of exercise to loose weight. If your muscles are sore from lifting weights and cardio, you need to sleep. You need to eat protein and you need to drink the right amount of water! Sore muscles repair faster, grow, and melt about fat when you sleep.

Sleep, sleep 6-8 hours at least….no less!
