How to Lose 40 Pounds in 2 Months

You can lose 40 pounds in 2 months without starving yourself or giving up your favorite foods. You can still enjoy what you like, but you need to change something, without any change, you would not lose any weight.

Losing 40 pounds in 2 months is a challenge, but you can achieve the goal. It may not easy, but it is not too hard to try. As long as you have high motivation to keep losing weight, you would finally do it. Don't stop even if you fail to follow the plan. Start it all over again. You know that most people who are successful with weight loss, had many failures too but they hadn't given up - that's why they reached the weight loss goals.

You need to lose about 5 pounds a week to reach your goal. The reality is you may lose more than 5 pounds a week in the first month, and in the later month you could drop less. This is how your body's system works.

The 6 steps below can help you lose 40 pounds in 2 months without starving yourself or giving up your favorite foods:

1. Eat a big breakfast: The reasons you need a big breakfast are:

-Keep your metabolic rate high. When you have high metabolism, your body burns calories faster and you lose weight quicker.

- You need to fuel your energy in the morning for the activities you are going to do. Without breakfast, you would feel weak and it may affect your work or other activities you may be involved in.

-A big breakfast keeps you from getting hungry later. People who don't have breakfast tend to get hungry and snack on unhealthy foods.

2. Eat a moderate lunch:
Since you have a big breakfast, you wouldn't be too hungry for lunch. You can still eat your favorite food, but you shouldn't eat as much as you did at breakfast time.

3. Have healthy snacks and drink plenty of water throughout the day: It would be a brilliant idea to snack on healthy foods like fruits or vegetables throughout the day. When you eat often you lose weight as your metabolism works like crazy to burn calories. Drinking a lot of water is good for your health, plus it can help you lose weight faster.

4. Eat only fruits, vegetables or low calorie foods for dinner: Your body doesn't need a lot of energy for dinner, so try to eat as little as possible; but it's not a good idea to skip dinner. It could drive you crazy and make you giving up to lose weight. Try to have low calorie foods such as fruits and vegetables. You can also have a small portion of chicken breast for your sanctification but they must be cooked, baked or grilled. Try to avoid frying foods as much as possible for this meal, and of course drink water.

5. Don't eat anything 2 hours before you go to bed except water.

6. Dancing or doing aerobic exercise 4-5 times a week, and each time spend at least 45 minutes.

Unless you are morbidly obese this would be impossible or extremely unhealthy. I think this post is setting unrealistic expectations for most people. 1.5 - 2 lbs a weeks is considered agressive weightloss. For most people who have 15- 20 lbs to lose .5 to 1 lb a week is a more reasonable/ healthy goal.

Even though I do believe that the expectations are too high for the average person I do like the tips that were given. With that being said I am going to incorporate these tips into my plan to lose weight and hopefully tone up a bit.

I beieve this is totally possible. I faithfully drank lots of water ,worked out morning and night. Ate nothing but fat free or low fat foods as per portion size and I lost 36 lbs in 6 weeks.
Did I cheat at times ?? Yes i did. I set my weigh in day for Thursdays. If i lost weight from one Thursday to the next, i treated my self right after weigh in. Then jumped right back on ship for the rest of the day until the following Thursday.
Of course if I gained ...I didnt treat myself. :-( I just worked harder.

I don't get what's "unrealistic" about this. This is literally how Romans ate, there are whole countries that do this (and some in reverse- having nearly nothing for breakfast, moderate lunch and huge ass dinners). This is actually more realist than most diets you see out there. As someone with an eating disorder I aim to eat twice a day to keep from dipping into the danger zone of completely not eating.
