How To Lose 5 Kilos In 2 Weeks

Losing 5 kg (11 lbs) in 2 weeks sounds like a lot, but it's only 2.5 kilos per week. I have achieved that several times, and the only difference between losing 2.5 kilos per week and losing 1 kilo per week is how strict you are with the diet.

After one successful week, the weight loss tends to reduce a little, either because the person who is on a diet becomes complacent or because the diet stalls or swings in terms of success.

If you want to lose 5 kilos in two weeks, both the first and second week have to be really hardcore, but only in respect to food. Exercising, I believe, is not a necessity when you only want to lose that much weight.

This may sound a little surprising for people who have been struggling to lose one kilo a week. But it all works quite well if you know what to do.

Just a small handful of rules

Only a couple of things need to work out fine so that a quick, two-week diet can outperform lame diets thought up by calorie counters. These few rules include:

1. Going on a strict No Carb Diet
2. Losing Weight During Sleep
3. Drinking a lot

And that's it. The trick is not to do more. Having only 2 weeks to go doesn't require a lot of planning, and thinking about too many things at the same time makes the plan intransparent and hard to follow. People often forget to stop at the right time, so they think a fruit here and a snack there won't hurt. But that exactly is the problem. Most of the time, you should not be eating anything. It's clear when to eat: Every four to five hours. Period.

What makes losing weight so simple?

The simplicity lies in the fact that the body can only access fat. Carbs are forbidden, hence the term no carb diet. If carbs are not available, only two other energy sources are possible. Protein and fat. Protein is right out, though, because the no carb diet, as I described it here, requires the user to eat a lot of protein, either in foods like steaks, or in protein shakes. With this amount of protein, most muscle tissue that is destroyed by the body can immediately be replaced.

Why does this work? Because the body likes to reduce muscle tissue on the one hand, but can't directly use protein from food as an energy source. That's too costly and complicated for the metabolisim. Therefore, the protein from food is rather used to rebuild muscle structure that's lost.

At the end of the day, the muscle tissue is relatively intact and keeps burning fats. Because fats are still needed as an energy source, and these fats are now taken from the body. There is, of course, the possibility that fat is also taken from no carb foods. However, the Foods With No Carbs that I mention on my blog and the No Carb Recipes that I prefer don't have that much fat. So your body will lose weight quite well.

Relaxing helps the soul

Another aspect is helpful. While many other people try very hard to exercise and are very judgemental about the results following, no carbers can relax, knowing that they have maximized their diet. Everything that causes weight loss without effort has been taken care of, and it's now the body's job to move the fat out of the way. Isn't that just totally comforting? You know what? It sounds better when you read it in an article that shows a guy on a sofa, so read How To Lose Weight Without Exercise.
