In 2 weeks, it is possible to lose between 1 kg and 5 kg, however, this weight loss may vary according to the person's metabolism, the fact that the diet is properly performed, and the practice of physical activities on a regular basis.

To achieve the goal, it is recommended that the person performs mainly aerobic activities, such as running, swimming, or walking, for example, because they help the body use more energy and burn accumulated fat.

What You Can Eat

In order to lose weight in 2 weeks, the allowed foods are fruits and vegetables, since they are rich in fiber, guaranteeing a feeling of satiety and improving the intestinal transit. Foods such as:

  • Oatmeal
  • Quinoa
  • Rice
  • Whole wheat bread
  • Eggs
  • Beans
  • Unsweetened granola
  • Potatoes
  • Flaxseed, sunflower seed, pumpkin seed, sesame seed
  • Nuts such as walnuts, almonds, peanuts, and cashews

Other foods that can speed up the metabolism, and thus promote weight loss, are thermogenic foods, such as cinnamon, ginger, red pepper, coffee, green tea, and apple cider vinegar, which can also be included in the diet. Learn more about thermogenic foods.

Foods That Must Be Avoided

The foods that must be avoided are those rich in salt, sugar, white wheat flour and fats, such as:

  • Sugar: sugar, sweets, desserts, cakes, chocolate;
  • Salt: salt, soy sauce, English sauce, meat and vegetable bouillon cubes, meat tenderizers, powdered soups;
  • White wheat flour: breads, cakes, pies, white sauce, snacks;
  • Fat: fried foods, red meat, bacon, sausage, salami, red meat rich in fat, whole milk and yellow cheese, such as cheddar and prato.

To replace salt in food preparation, you can use natural herbs and spices such as onion, garlic, rosemary, parsley, thyme, basil, and oregano, because they make the food taste better and don't retain liquids in the body.
