Losing 25 pounds in two weeks is a lot of weight to drop in a short period. However, sometimes wedding dates or other major events creep up on us. You might need to fit into that special dress or drop a few pounds before visiting family members. Regardless of the reason, losing this much weight can be done with hard work and consistency. Every person is different, so results vary. You can lose weight, but it will take a lot of hard work. Be positive, and push yourself to reach your goals.
Things You'll Need
- Raw fruits and vegetables
- CLA vitamin supplement
- B-complex vitamins
Buy CLA and b-complex vitamin supplements at a health-food store. You will find CLA near the fat-burning and metabolism-boosting vitamins. B vitamins increase energy, which is helpful with weight loss. You need a dosage of 50 mg or more of both CLA and B vitamins. A bottle of B vitamins usually costs about $10, and CLA usually is $15 or more.
Eat a healthy breakfast each morning. A healthy breakfast consists of oatmeal or raw fruits and vegetables. You can eat eggs, but limit butter and cheese. Eat your food slowly, and take your time chewing. After breakfast, take your B vitamins and CLA capsules with pure water.
Eat six small meals throughout the day. Small meals boost your metabolism. Choose raw fruits and vegetables and lean meats. Do not use butter, ranch dressing or any other toppings while you are trying to lose weight. Avoid eating food late in your day. Snack on carrots and apples all day long. You also can eat lean meat, such as turkey and salmon. Avoid fatty meats, bread and sugar.
Drink eight to 10 glasses of pure water each day. You must stay hydrated to lose weight. Water flushes your body of excess toxins and boosts your metabolic rate. Anything you can do to boost your metabolism will help you lose weight. Drink more water while you work out.
Exercise for two hours each day for six days a week. You have only two weeks, so you must increase your workout schedule. Work out on a treadmill or elliptical machine, and lift weights every other day. Spend the most time running to burn the fat. Keep your heart rate up for 30 minutes, lift weights, then get back on the treadmill.
Tips & Warnings
- Put a photo of your favorite dress or bikini on the fridge as motivation. For these two weeks, you really must focus. Every day counts because you are on a deadline to lose 25 pounds.
- Don't go shopping for groceries when you are hungry. If you get cravings at night, add a scoop of fiber to a glass of milk. The fiber will help curb your cravings and give you a sense of fullness.
- Losing weight this quickly is not for everyone. If you have a health condition or any other concerns, consult your doctor. Sometimes losing weight too quickly results in some of the weight coming back. To keep the weight off, you must continue with a healthy diet and exercise plan.
