How To Lose 10 Lbs In 2 Weeks

Updated on January 4, 2008

I've followed this diet to lose 10 lbs. in 2 weeks and it really does work, but the trick is keeping the weight off. Before going on vacations I would follow this diet to lose weight before the trip, but if you really want to keep the weight off, the trick is to keep eating healthy after the 2 weeks so you don't quickly gain it all back. Just to warn you, there's a lot of eggs involved, so if you don't like eggs, this may not be your kind of diet.

Your normal diet is supposed to consist of 30% protein, 30% healthy fat (such as avacados, etc.) and 40% carbs. Unlike the Atkins diet, this diet doesn't restrict carbs from your diet, It allows you to eat bread and salad, just without the fatty dressing or butter on them, and it's smaller portions so that your stomach will shrink.

During these 2 weeks, don't drink anything with calories with your meals. I'd suggest water, flavored water, diet iced tea, etc. Also, all meat must be grilled, not fried.

Day 1:

Breakfast- 3 eggs, one piece of dry toast (preferably wheat, since white turns into fat) and a grapefruit

Lunch: Salad (lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions and carrots) with no dressing (I sometimes cheat and sprinkle a little vinegar on it for taste)

Dinner: 3 eggs with two pieces of dry toast and salad

Day 2:

Breakfast: 3 eggs, one piece of dry toast and a grapefruit

Lunch: 3 eggs and one piece of dry toast

Dinner: Grilled chicken and salad

Day 3:

Breakfast: 3 eggs, one piece of dry toast and a grapefruit

Lunch: Salad

Dinner: Fish (of your choice) and salad

Day 4:

Breakfast: 3 eggs, one piece of dry toast and a grapefruit

Lunch: 3 eggs, one piece of dry toast and a grapefruit

Dinner: Steak tips and salad

Day 5:

Breakfast: 3 eggs, one piece of dry toast and a grapefruit.

Lunch: Salad

Dinner: 3 eggs, 2 pieces of dry toast and salad

Day 6:

Breakfast: 3 eggs, one piece of dry toast and a grapefruit

Lunch: Grilled chicken salad

Dinner: Chicken and Vegetable soup (mix fat free chicken broth with grilled chicken, sliced carrots, chopped celery and beans if you desire)

Day 7:

Breakfast: 3 eggs, one piece of dry toast and a grapefruit.

Lunch: 3 eggs, one piece of dry toast and a grapefruit.

Dinner: Fish and salad

Repeat for one week.

      Hi I'm ena~ and I'm 16 years old. To all the people who are saying that kids around my age are too young to be worrying about weight and start concerning about school~ you guys should try to be in our position. What if we were overweight and were insecure? What if we want to lose some weight because we want to fit in? I believe none of you have any right to say anything about age. Because we have feelings too and we want to be pretty/skinny too. So your unnessessary comments referring to age isn't needed. Please learn to respect everyone.

      Agreed this diet really works! I also didn't follow it to the t yet have been able to achieve same results. For breakfast I had toast with boiled or poached egg-no yolk. Lunch I had garden salad with grilled chicken and 1 slice of bread, dinner I had small portion of carb and grilled fish or meat which ever is available. I snaked. I think the key is to split you lunch breaks into small intervals to stop you from feeling hungry and wanting to snack.

      This diet works if you stick to it - I didn't follow it to a T, but lost over 5 lbs on it, so a total of 10 lbs weight loss so far including another diet regimen I was on.

      Starting it again tomorrow to attempt to lose the last 5-10 lbs - it's not a diet you can maintain, but it's good if you want a quick weight loss, and energy boost, then just make healthier choices after - that's what I've been doing - trying to eat lean proteins, vegetables, and fruit, instead of eating too many carbs.

      Please excuse the typos. I was typing in the dark, and to fast. .... Here is a site to help you figure out your ideal "healthy" weight based on your HEIGHT and gender. Please keep in mind that "healthy" doesn't mean "skinny". Being healthy is a lot more than the scale. It's a FIT body, and sound mind! For those wanting to drop so fast, and to a weight that is unhealthy... please seek someone to talk to, because you may be experiencing signs of a disorder. Seek help before it gets bad, or dangerous. trust me. xoxox

      Any one under the age of 18 should not be using "fad diets" to loose weight. .....For the extremely young ones (11-15 year olds)... Sweeties, please, talk to your parents or a counselor about your plans to loose weight. if your "tall for your age", you do NOT need to weigh 105 pounds. Being too skinny is not only detremental to your health, but can can you in the long run. Take it from me. ....I did not eat what I was supposed to when I was younger, and weighed very little (I'm 5'6, and in highschool weight 100lbs). I'm now 26 years old, and have Osteopenia, which is a low bone density (could lead to Osteoporosis). Mainly because I did not EAT nutrients I NEEDED for a growing bosy when I was young. I am now 125 pounds. A HEALTHY weight for my height. And finally have some womanly curves! It's a GOOD THING! ...... being super skinny is NOT "sexy". .....and 11 year old should be out playing with friends, not dieting. Trust me, you'll be old before you know it. Live you life and have fun now.

      This is not a healthy meal plan and it is not healthy to lose weight that quickly. The most you should lose is 2 pounds a week. Shocking your body with little calories for 2 weeks with force it into starvation mode and you will pack the pounds back on after. Unless you are actually eating this way from now on the weight will come back, and this diet is not healthy to maintain over a long period of time.

      DON'T DO IT! EAT HEALTHY AND EXERCISE.

      To Ashley (and any other teen): Honestly at 14 I wouldn't recommend you going to the extreme of this diet but rather use it to help you plan your daily meals instead. Don't stay on this diet for 4 weeks. 2 weeks is all they recommend for this diet for health reasons. It is a very low cal diet and you need the calories to be healthy, expecially at your age. This does work even with variations, such as exchanging fish for chicken. I would recommend grilled foods, veggies, fruits, alot of water, and exersise rather than you using this or any diet. If you haven't, make sure to talk with your parents about healthy meals and about your feelings with your weight. If you have, keep talking with them. Best wishes and stay healthy.

Are you kiding me? you guys should really be more worried about homework or what friends house your going to have a sleep over in next week. Im 26 years old and i came here to find a way to lose weight fast but im an adult and im at an age where i NEED to worry about my weight. Honestly teenagers should not be worried about this weight thing because you guys can lose the weight 10X faster than use adults. Please enjoy your childhood and sto trying to grow up so fast kids!

      This diet sure is enticing!

      But what about all the weight lost? Aren't we going to gain it back right after we stop this diet?

      Lydia, 115 sounds like a good weight to me. What's your height? I'm not sure if I will try this or not but I do like eggs so it's pretty tempting :)

      Lydia, are you going to be on your period soon? you can gain up to about 5 pounds during menstruation. It will go away once your period is over.

      So I started this diet 3 days ago to lose weight before I leave for Vegas in 3 weeks. I have followed the diet exactly with the exception that I had an orange yesterday with breakfast instead of the grapefruit. I have put on 2 1/2 lbs. I have been fast walking 30 min every night since I started. I am worried that I will gain weight with this diet and not lose it. I am 23 years old and was 115 lbs and now 117.5. This sort of frustrates me, can anyone tell me if you gain weight before you lose it on this diet, or if I just need to be patient? Thanks
