Lose 2 pounds a week is very healthy according to the claims of most diet experts. It’s not easy or difficult to do so.

Many people struggle to lose just 2 pounds a week. The fact it’s not difficult if you know the right way to do so. Anyway, don’t forget the basic rule of losing weight, you can lose weight by consuming less than what you burn. Today I am going to show you the simple way to lose 2 pounds without a lot of effort, but remember that you need to change your eating habit and the way you do physical activities. You won’t lose any weight without changing the facts I mentioned.

In order to lose 2 pounds a week, you need to burn or reduce 1000 calories a day. It can be done by walking 45 minutes 2 times a day. You can walk 45 minutes in the morning and then other 45 in the evening. Every 45 minutes you walk, you burn 500 calories. It means if you can simply reduce 1000 calories a day or 2 pounds a week by just walking 2 times a day without changing your eating habit.

The most popular way is to burn 500 by exercise (walking, swimming, running, yoga, so on), and another 500 by reducing calories intake.

Reducing calories intake doesn’t mean you have to starve yourself. What you can do is to replace high calories foods by low ones.

Remember that starving doesn’t make you lose weight in long term, you may lose it temporary. Do you want to lose weight just to gain it back? If your answer is “No” then forget about starvation. You know you gain weight if you let yourself starve, as the metabolic rate slows down in order to keep the fat, once you go back to your normal eating, then you really gain weight much faster than when you lose it.

Here are some tips to help you lose 2 pounds a week without starvation.

1. Eat one fruit or a glass of pure water before each meal: This method will definitely help you to reduce calories intake, as when you consume something before your meal, it prevents you from overeating.

An apple, a banana, or a glass of pure water before your meal, make you feel less hungry, then you eat less food during your meal.

2. Reduce high calories foods and drinks: You wouldn’t be able to lose 2 pounds a week if you still consume high calories food like MacDonald, ice cream, all kind of junk food. You should really avoid these foods. You will most likely gain weight instead.

Sodas and soft drink contain empty calories. They are high content of sugar. You know one can of these drinks has 150 empty calories. It has little benefit to your health. You gain weight quicker by consuming more of these drinks. If you are the one who drink at least a can of these drinks everyday, you can lose at least 1 pound a month by cutting a can of these drinks, without doing any other things else

3. Consume more fiber foods: Fiber foods are good for your health. If you want to lose 2 pounds a week, then try to eat more fiber foods. These foods are low in calories and fat, but high in vitamin and minerals. They make your stomach feel full longer period, as it extends inside the stomach.

You can see that losing 2 pounds is not rocket science. By reducing 2 pounds a week, you can lose 50 pounds in 6 months. 2 pounds doesn’t seem to be a lot of weight, but it’s a very healthy weight to be shed off in a week as most experts claimed. It doesn’t sound good if you can lose 50 pounds in 6 months?
