While you may feel tempted to skip breakfast or spend a day fasting, you should resist the urge to do so. Prolonged fasting can cause muscle loss and other health problems, but it can also make it more difficult for your body to lose weight. When the human body does not receive enough nutrition, it automatically starts conserving calories by burning them at a slower rate. You may experience significant weight loss after the first few days, but by the end of the two weeks, you will probably gain a good portion of it back

Simple...Stay away from greasy, fatty foods as well as those with a high sugar content.

3.Stick to Faithful body Friends..
Munch on "negative calorie" foods.Whether or not negative calorie foods are truly negative is up for debate. As the theory goes, some foods take so much energy to digest that eating them actually burns more calories than the foods contain. Even if you do not burn calories eating these foods, though, you will not gain many calories from them, either.
  • In the way of vegetables, eat more asparagus, beet root, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, hot chili, cucumber, garlic, green beans, lettuce, onion, radish, spinach, turnip, and zucchini.
  • As for fruits, gravitate toward apples, blueberries, cantaloupe, cranberries, grapefruit, honeydew, lemons, limes, oranges, mangos, papayas, peaches, pineapples, raspberries, strawberries, tomatoes, tangerines, and watermelon.

4.Water-the life giver..
Drink more water. Water flushes out your system, removing unneeded toxins, making it easier to lose weight. Moreover, water is free of calories, making it a much better choice than sugary drinks

5.Stick to the food pyramid.Contrary to popular belief, “fad” diets that require you to only eat a certain type of food will leave your body malnourished. A malnourished body cannot function properly, which makes it difficult to lose calories. To maintain a healthy level of nutrition, you should follow food pyramid proportions.

6.Choose leaner proteins. Instead of beef and pork, opt for leaner meats like chicken or fish. Consuming fish is especially helpful because the fatty acids in fish give your body the beneficial oils it needs, and may help subdue the urge to consume greasy or fattening foods.

7. Only eat whole grains. Completely cutting the carbohydrates from your diet will leave you nutritionally imbalanced. Instead, eat fibrous whole grains instead of enriched white bread, pasta, or rice. The fiber contained in whole grains can help you flush out your digestive system, thereby reducing the weight you carry in your gut from undigested or partially digested food.

8. Make a commitment. You cannot afford to have an “off” day when you slack on your diet or exercise regiment. Once you decide to go this route, you must be committed to seeing it through.

9.Get several hours of moderate to vigorous exercise each day.[4] The best way to burn calories is through exercise. If your body is already familiar with moderate physical activity, you might be able to take things up a notch by alternating moderate and vigorous activity throughout your day. On the other hand, if you are unaccustomed to much physical activity, you should only stick to moderate exercise. Either way, make sure to take plenty of breaks and to re-hydrate yourself with plenty of water.
  • Vigorous activity burns between 400 and 600 calories per hour, and examples include running, bicycling, swimming, aerobics, basketball, and heavy weight lifting or yard work.
  • Moderate activity burns between 200 and 400 calories per hour and includes hiking, light yard work, dancing, golf, slow bicycling, and slow walking. Get at least 30 minutes of exercise 2-3 times a week.

10. last but not least...get a full night’s sleep. The human body cannot function properly without sleep. Sleep gives the body a chance to rest, restoring it to peak operating conditions and thereby making it easier for the body to burn calories and drop weight. In order to lose a lot of weight in a short amount of time, you should make sure to get between seven and eight hours of sleep each night.
