How To Lose 10 Pounds in 2 Weeks

Yep, you read the title correctly. Here are my tried and true ways to losing 10 lbs in a two weeks. I've done each of these methods and they all have worked great for me. These are not short term solutions. Eating well and being active is always best.

2 Shakes and Chicken Salad Diet

Here's what you'll be eating.
  • Drink a 30-40 gram meal replacement shake for breakfast.
  • Drink a 30-40 gram meal replacement shake for lunch.
  • Eat a salad for dinner with 1-2 chicken breasts and vinegar based dressing.
  • If you are especially hungry, eat an apple after dinner.
  • If you are still hungry, eat a cup of cottage cheese before bed.

Common Questions.

Q: Are there any "cheat days"?
A: No. The goal of this diet is to see how many days in a row you can do this. Most people only last 5-7 days. If you can do two weeks...that is awesome. I wouldn't go much longer than 3 weeks. Each day "builds upon" the previous will be visibly leaner day by day. It is tough as hell, but works wonders!

Q: How much weight can I expect to lose?
A: It depends, but you will drop weight at a fast rate. Not all of that weight loss will be body fat. There is a good chance that you could lose 8-15 pounds in 2 weeks...but a little less than half of that will be body fat. If you have a lot of weight to can drop rate at a much faster rate.

Q: This sounds pretty extreme.
A: It is and it is NOT meant to be done long term. Maybe just 1-2 times per year to either jump start a diet...or use leading up to summer or a vacation, etc.

I stumbled upon this diet on a Facebook page. It's simple and provides great results.

Lucille Roberts Skinny Jeans Diet
Follow the instructions on the image above and you can expect to get the results as stated. It's difficult to stick to eating the same thing for 2 weeks but the results are so worth it. 

Vegetable & Fruit Detox

This is the healthiest way to lose lots of weight at a quick past. Nothing but vegetables, fruits, and water. You can eat it raw, steamed or drink it as a juice or smoothie but nothing else is to touch you lips but some variation of vegetable and fruits.

Protein Shake Diet

Similar to the protein/ liquid diets used by some doctors on their bariatric patients pre surgery this one involves nothing but water, protein shakes, and low cal- low carb beverages.   

Disclaimer: Please consult your physician before trying any of these diets.

While on each of these I exercised/walked/light running for an hour 4 times a week.

Do you have any tried and true methods that you've tried?
