On a recent trip I used the 3 steps below to lose an average of 5 pounds every 2 weeks. This didn’t require counting calories or exercising like crazy – I just followed the steps below and lost weight!
And yes YOU can lose weight in 2 weeks! In fact, if you follow the steps I outline below you’ll lose as many as 5 pounds in the next 2 weeks, and it won’t require anything crazy. Sound good? Let’s get started!
Step 1: Say NO to Sugar
Regardless of what you’ve heard from the FDA or your doctor, Sugar is what makes you fat.
It’s very important that you don’t just understand this, but believe it if you want to lose weight in the next 2 weeks. Sugar makes you FAT.
The short version is that your liver has to process the sugar you eat – much like your liver processes alcohol. Sugar consumption causes an insulin spike, and insulin is your bodies way of processing sugar . . . by storing it as fat.
We recently wrote a post on the longer version entitled Is sugar the reason you can’t lose weight.
First, and just to be clear, Sugar includes: White Sugar, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Honey, Agave Nectar, Maple Syrup, and Fructose in fruit – especially fruit juice. For the record, High Fructose Corn Syrup and White Sugar are both equally bad for you!
Sugar does not include: rice, pasta, potatoes, bread (unless if it has high fructose corn syrup in it), corn, and other carbs.
Back in the 60s and 70s, before the obesity crisis, the average American ate around 40 pounds of sugar a year. As of today – 2011 – the average American eats more than 90 pounds of sugar a year!
The fat content of our food has stayed about the same, and yet obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer rates have all skyrocketed. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that sugar is the culprit!
For the next 2 weeks limit your sugar intake to no more than 25 grams of sugar a day. This can be tricky, as even those single-service yogurt cups can have 15 to 20 grams of sugar.
Keep your eyes on the nutrition label, stick to the unsweetened and prepare to drop some pounds!
Step 2: Say NO to Milk & Cheese
I know I said that the main culprit of obesity is sugar – and it is, but cheese and dairy are right behind it.
I’m sure a lot of you LOVE cheese. Hey, I love cheese too! But I prefer to be lean and healthy, and cheese is a big culprit in the obesity epidemic.
The problem with dairy is that milk and dairy products are designed to grow a 100 pound calf into a 1000 pound cow in one year flat. Cow milk was never intended for human consumption.
Heck, a lot of people are ‘lactose intolerant’ and our society makes this sound like a disease. They even have pills you can take to make dairy easier on your system.
The reality is we’re lactose intolerant for a reason – Cow milk is not meant for human consumption.
Again, do your body a favor and take a 2 week hiatus from milk and cheese – your waistline will thank you.
Step 3: Get Outside and Walk
This is really simple. Get outside and walk every day if you can for at least 30 minutes.
I know this doesn’t qualify as ‘traditional’ exercise, but the truth is that taking a walk still get’s your blood pumping and your body moving, and that’s an important part of losing weight.
Walking is also a great way to unwind at the end of a long day, and a great time to talk to a friend or your spouse.
That’s it! Those are my 3 weight loss tips that will help you lose weight in 2 weeks. Try it out and I hope it works as well for you as it does for me.
