So here we are one month into the new year and now is the time to assess how your health and fitness plan is working out.
If you are struggling to see results and stay focused here is a quick plan you can follow that virtually guarantees you will start to lose weight in the next 2 weeks.
The focus of this simple yet effective fat loss plan is too concentrate on eating only one ingredient foods.
That is it.
No calorie counting or worry about how much protein, carbs or fats you should be eating.
The only rule is that you eat food that has one ingredient.
So in effect we are cutting out all types of dairy, packaged foods and any foods that contain sugar.
Ok so with that in mind if you want to lose some belly fat in the next 2 weeks then here is a list of the only foods you should eat.

As you can you are not exactly having to starve yourself and should have plenty of energy from eating all this fresh nutritious food.
I believe most people can stick to this way of eating for at least 14 days and if you can depending on your current weigh and body fat levels could lose between 3-10 pounds in 2 weeks.
However if you want even better results then I recommend you use the follow tips.
Tip 1 – Plan all your meals in advance.
This is very important because it will ensure you have the best chance of sticking with the plan. I know planning meals in advance can be a pain but as it is only for a short period just stick to the same type of meals while just changing the foods you eat so you get the best variety of nutrients.
Also by knowing exactly what you are eating each day and having it all organised means you won´t be caught short and end up eating something that is not on the list. In addition to meal planning I also recommend you keep a food journal and write down everything you eat because studies show that keeping a food journal will help you lose weight faster.
Tip 2 Set a realistic goal, weigh yourself and take all your measurements.
Before you start set yourself a realistic. Yes it would be great to lose 20 pounds in 2 weeks but this is not going to happen so pick a target that is challenging but at the same time is realistic.
So whatever this is write it down and put down the steps you are going to do to accomplish it. Once you have it all laid out in black and white make sure to review it every day so you know whether you are sticking to your plan.
When reviewing your plan make sure to keep a watch on what you weigh and measure as this will also give you further proof that you are on track to hit your target.
Likewise if things are not progressing properly you will be able to see this quickly and change things accordingly.
Normally I would recommend weighing only once a week but for the next 14 days weigh every other day.
Tip 3 Perform proper planned workouts
If you are just going to the gym and doing any old workout or trying to copy what you see other people doing and trying to wing it then you are not going to get the best results.
To get round this I recommend either hiring a trainer to create and show you a routine that you can do on your own or get your hands on an effective fat loss program such as this one.
Also with your workouts you must be consistent and not miss any if you want to the chance to lose a decent amount of weight in 2 weeks.
This means planning them into your schedule as an important meeting that cannot be missed unless you are really ill or there is an emergency.
Tip 5 – Do other forms of activity every day
Along with your fat burning workouts you should strive to do something every day at least for the next 2 weeks.
So when not doing an intense workout try to fit in some activity that will stimulate your metabolism but is fairly light in intensity. I would try and do this for at least 30 minutes but ideally closer to 60 minutes and could range from a walk, jog, swim, cycle, yoga or dance class, an easy game of sport you enjoy or just be being active with the family.
Not only will this burn off some extra energy but the more active you are the less time you will be sitting around and being tempted to snack which is the downfall of many a fat loss plan.
Tip 4 – Try to get support and make yourself accountable.
Research has shown that most people do better in achieving their weight loss goals when they are involved with a like minded community or are doing it together with family, friends or co-workers.
This is why diet organisations such as weightwatchers are so successful and why many of the fat loss programs now offer a members forum where you can go speak to people in the same position as you to swap information and be inspired with other peoples success stories.
Along with finding a support network announcing your intentions to friends and family is also a great motivator because then you become accountable for your actions.
Therefore if you are serious about reaching your goals tell all your family and friends and declare it in writing on say Facebook or Twitter.
Tip 5 Have One Cheat Meal if you really need it.
If you are struggling to stick with the diet then schedule in a cheat meal to help satisfy cravings or if you have done well in your first week use it as a reward.
However this doesn´t mean going overboard it simply means having a normal meal of your favorite foods to give you a mental break from your plan.
This is only an option and should only be used if you know you can control your actions and get right back on the plan after you have enjoyed it.
So there you have a guide that if you follow through will almost guarantee that you will lose weight in 2 weeks which depending on much effort and dedication you apply could result in 5-12 pounds of fat being burned off which is fantastic start to the new year and your goal to make this the year you finally get the body of your dreams.
Not only will you lose weight in 2 weeks but you will have also started to develop strong positive habits that will allow you to keep burning fat and more importantly keep it off for ever.
Once you have completed this 14 day challenge and want to keep the fat loss momentum going then I recommend investing in a structured fat loss program such as Turbulence Training
