Have something important coming in about 2 weeks—like a photo shoot, a romantic date, or even your wedding day—and would like to lose a few pounds? Here are some tips gathered from our leading experts on how you can safely reduce your waistline-inches in just 2 weeks or less.
1. Say no to sugar, you’re sweet enough
Cut out all forms of processed sugars or sweeteners. Watch out for hidden sources of sugar (glucose and sucrose) and high-carb content, too. Unused carbs convert into sugars and fats that go against your weight loss goals.
2. Good carbs, bad carbs
There are more good choices of carbs than bad ones. Simple carbs like white rice and white bread digest quickly and easily, leaving you hungry for more.
Choose green veggies, whole grains like oatmeal, and starchy vegetables like sweet potatoes, pumpkin, and corn, instead. These foods keep you satiated for longer periods which means less snacking.
3. Bust a move every day
Once you’ve got the healthy diet down, you have to find the time and discipline to workout for at least a half-hour, every day. Experts say you need to lose between 500 to 1,000 calories a day, and that takes some physical activity.
Get your heart moving and your body will thank you.
4. Water is love, water is life
Stick to drinking only water for your hydration needs. Coffee and tea are good, but only without the added sugars and creamers. Lay off drinks with high-sugar content; and yes, those alcohols too, honey.
If you find drinking water a little too boring for your taste, you could add in citrus fruits—such as lemons and oranges—to make the water a little more interesting; and voila! You’ve got yourself a great detox drink.
5. Small plate, big changes
You are what you eat, and if you eat irregularly, your weight loss progress will also be irregular. Aim toward controlling (limiting) and maintaining the amount of food that goes on your plate, and keeping it the same every day.
6. Stress is so overrated
Your body needs adequate rest to heal and recuperate to burn off stubborn fat. Eliminate your stress by going for spa massages and sipping on relaxing chamomile tea often. Do everything you can to relax and be at peace of mind and body.
7. Get professional treatment – a celebrity secret
Those amazing tight abs and unworldly instantaneous results are possible with state of the art technology in medical aesthetics. In most cases, the loose skins and unsightly cellulite is something we can’t fix even with rigorous diet and exercise. You need professional help.
