- Increase your daily exercise duration with 15 minutes. If you don’t exercise at all, start doing it: either go running, or climb the stairs at a rapid pace, or walk fast around your neighborhood. If you wish, you can practice a sport such as swimming, or table tennis, or tennis (chess is excluded), 2-3 times a week, and supplement it with home workouts
- If you don’t have a park nearby where to go for jogging every day, you can replace this activity with rapid 100 meters sprints (do about 5-6 per day)
- Reduce carbohydrates from your diet. Avoid pasta, bread, sugars and starches. Mainly, this means to kiss your desserts, ice creams and in-between meals sweet snacks good bye
- Give up alcohol and soft drinks completely. They are some of the biggest enemies of weight loss programs
Don’t forget to weigh yourself in the beginning of the weight loss trial. If you wish, you can also measure your body fat percentage. In order to maintain motivation, it would be best to avoid weighing yourself every day to see how much you’ve progressed, or even worse, every hour. Do it only once in 3-4 days, if you cannot resist the whole 2 weeks period.
