Losing weight is not as easy as it may seem. The exercises, diets and changes in lifestyle force several people to quit their plan in the middle. Moreover, making sudden changes in your eating and living routines may seem to be quite difficult. Therefore, this weight loss diet plan has been combined to help you lose 14 pounds in a week. Developed by German Motors’ dieticians, this plan enables healthy weight loss by providing you ample nutrients. The plan is based on the idea of cleansing your body, through which you lose extra weight and flush out all the toxins.
Laying the ground for weight loss
The plan breaks the myth that people should lose only 1 kg in a week. This also makes sure that you lose all the weight in a healthy manner, without eliminating fats or carbohydrates from your diet. At the same time, this diet plan detoxifies your system. Before beginning this diet, one must follow a set of simple principles that can help you reduce weight and become more fit.
1. Before dieting, an individual must start reducing the amount of sugar and oil in his/her food. He/she must prepare both himself/herself and the body for the task ahead.
2. A person, who decides to follow this diet, certainly needs family and friends support. They must encourage him to make positive changes into his/her lifestyle. In fact, they must join him/her in the endeavor.
3. Losing weight in such a short time can put a strain on the body and is quite challenging. So, make sure that you follow the diet strictly, and re-try it only after a gap of 2 weeks.
4. Most importantly, the weight loss which will occur through strict adherence to the diet must be maintained through a healthy lifestyle. You should be motivated to maintain a healthy weight and exercise for at least 20 minutes for 5 days in a week.

The reason your weight has increased is because of your wrong eating practices as well as your negative lifestyle. Because of this, your body is not used to healthy eating.

For the very first day of your diet, you must stick to eating only fruits, except for bananas because they have high calorie and carbohydrate content. The day should start with at least two servings of apple, which will make you feel light and will help to stay attentive while substituting for coffee. Remember, no black tea, alcohol or coffee and no unnatural sugars or sweeteners are allowed. Eat melons and other fruits during breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner.

Don’t add cream to it. Eating a lot of fresh watermelons can help you reduce 3 pounds on day one. Also, drink lots of water. Make sure that you don’t consume any fruit juices.
Even though your body has received lots of nutrients, including essential vitamins on day one, you might be feeling a little weak, especially if this is your first time.

For the second day, you must stick to all vegetables (nothing related to meat products). This day you can eat raw vegetables of your choice. In fact, you can even eat cooked vegetables. Just make sure that you use no more than one tablespoon of oil in your food, and have just herbs and vegetable dressings in your vegetable dishes. The type of vegetables you can eat is endless, and so is the amount. If you want an instant boost of energy, go for a baked potato for breakfast. Remember to drink loads of water.
