We just love eating so much! In our daily plans and activities, food is always on the list. Admit it, even after a workout session, you are just always tempted to cheat. However, with that being said, we don’t realize that we consume calories more than what we need for the whole day. If you’re planning to lose weight in a month or a few weeks, the first thing you have to control is your eating habit. As much as possible, consume only 1000 calories per day although you have to know too that it won’t be enough for you to function well because you’ll probably feel sluggish so it’s recommended if you’re going to avoid hard physical activities for the weeks you’re on a 1k calorie diet. But this is an option only if you’re in a hurry to lose that extra 15 pounds off your body.

So how would you keep and maintain this 1000 calories diet for a few weeks or so? Well, the best solution is to cook your own meals! Eating out on a fast food or restaurant will make you consume more than what you need because most of the time, food establishments serve huge portions. Furthermore, if you cook your own meals, you have control over what ingredients you’re going to use. For example—instead of using olive oil, vegetable oil, or butter, use a cooking spray. Olive oil is healthy; unfortunately, it’s 120 calories per tablespoon. And don't worry about the cooking being extra work for you, just focus on the results after. You'll have that desired weight you're aiming for!

Before meals, try to eat fruits so you’ll feel full instantly. Plus, they will help you to ignore your cravings for calories. But unfortunately, fruit juices do not count because they do not contain fiber and they’re sugary.

Refill Your Energy With A Cup of Coffee

Losing pounds in just so few weeks is difficult so you will need a lot of energy for you to use in your exercise and workout sessions. But since we eat less calories than usual, it’s expected that we will be lacking energy too. The secret to feeling energized? Coffee!

Aside from that, coffee helps you to lose pounds because it will burn more calories as it contains antioxidants.

Have Your Cheat Day!

It’s a ritual for those who’re trying to lose pounds to have at least their cheat days every now and then. But if you’re trying to attain something in just 2 weeks, well, you’re allowed to have at least one cheat day. This is okay because it will be something to look forward to while you’re trying to cut down calories for several days. It’s going to be easier to keep the discipline if you know that you’re waiting for a reward. However, that’s not the only reason. There’s also a scientific explanation why you’ll need your cheat day too. If you deprive your body of its needs for too long, it will switch to survival mode which will slow your metabolism and you won’t be able to function well if that happens. Lose pounds in a month or weeks if you want but your health should still be your number one priority.

Lose Pounds with Body Weight Exercises

Another effective way to lose extra pounds is to do body weight exercises such as push-ups and lunges as these physical activities can help you build lean muscle mass.

But there is an easy way to trick yourself to not give in to your cravings and that is to chew a gum! Chewing a gum will trick your body into thinking that it’s consuming food. Aside from that, you will less likely put food into your mouth if you’re already chewing something, right?

Have Enough Rest and Sleep

To be able to lose pounds in just a few weeks, a less of everything is not the only solution. Because there is still something that you shouldn’t deprive yourself of and that is rest and sleep. For you to function well every day, you should have at least 7 or 8 hours of sleep every night. Having enough rest will help your brain to think properly and make food choices. It will not make you feel so sluggish after waking up as well. A good amount of sleep will improve your metabolism too that will help your body burn more calories in the process. But the best part is, a good sleep will increase the recovery of your muscles that will help you through your workout session for the whole day.

Reminder! Health Should Still Be Your Priority

There are actually a lot of ways to lose weight in just 2 weeks but these are some of the most effective ones. Just a reminder, it’s not always guaranteed that every life hack will work the same for everyone as our bodies have different ways of coming up with different activities. So if you feel that these options are doing you bad rather than the opposite, it’s recommended that you consult a health specialist so you can find better options. Furthermore, losing weight in 2 weeks is not really different from losing weight in a few months. So if you find yourself having difficulties in coming up with these strategies, go at your own pace and go with where your body’s going to be more comfortable.
