Can I Lose 10 Pounds In Two Weeks?

Many people who are trying to lose weight will wonder if they can lose as much as ten pounds in two weeks for a number of reasons. The answer is not really all that simple because it depends on a number of factors and should be answered with several new questions as well. The first of those questions is this: why do you want to lose these ten pounds in only two weeks?

Losing weight starts with understanding your body's metabolism. Everything that you eat or drink is meant to give you energy (calories) that your body uses for its various functions from breathing and blood pumping to exercising and everything in between. You burn a small amount of calories even while you are sleeping. The trick is to take in fewer calories each day then what you burn but not to go too low. You cannot simply stop eating and lose weight because the body will panic and will hold onto its calories instead. You actually have to eat to lose weight, that cannot be repeated often enough.

There are several weight loss plans that will tell you that you can lose as much as ten pounds in two weeks with some claiming that their weight loss results are higher or faster. You should be aware that those plans are often very restrictive, difficult to stay with and often require very intense exercise in conjunction with those lower calorie eating plans. If you are not a very disciplined person, skip these plans because you will become disappointed with yourself very quickly.

Another option is the liquid diets, the juice and tea cleanses and the master cleanse plans. These are not always very safe and often come with some very unpleasant side effects. The master cleanse in particular is very unpleasant and former users have reported gagging and even throwing up during the process. If you are planning to lose this weight for a very special event or single day, it is likely that you are not going to be thinking about the long term health risks that are involved. How happy will you be if you get to your event down ten pounds but looking sallow, wobbly on your feet and ready to throw up? And, how happy would you be if by the end of the night you find yourself picking food off of other people's plates because you are starving?

Yes, you can lose ten pounds in two weeks but it is not usually recommended for the average person to do so. Instead, you should be focusing on slower, more sensible weight loss of one to two pounds per week. That will allow you not only to lose weight but to keep it off as well.
