1. How To Lose Twenty Pounds In Two Months

Most weight loss programs or fad diets only allow you to reduce your weight temporarily and sometimes in ways that can be unhealthy.

There are certain other things people try when they are desperate - like trying creams, belts, extracts, even anti-depressants for weight loss!

Unlike these diets, I believe you don’t need to starve yourself in order to live at a healthy weight.

Even if you wish to lose weight in just 2 months, it is a myth that you must be willing to risk damaging your health to lose weight fast.

This “Lose 20 Pounds In 60 Days” plan below is the healthy alternative to all of the unhealthy, nonworking and unbearable fad diet plans you've followed in the past.

Rest assured, you now have a fat loss program that can totally transform your body in just 60 days and give you the look and feel you've always desired.

So now is a good idea to remove all of the diets you've tried in the past out of your mind, and only focus on the roadmap before you.

I have laid out all of the food and exercise choices before you so that you don't have to worry too much about what to eat and what activities to do to get the weight off and achieve your goal.

I have laid out all of the food and exercise choices before you so that you don't have to worry too much about what to eat and what activities to do to get the weight off.

Your biggest challenge now will not be whether you actually lose 20 pounds in 2 months, but rather your commitment to follow the plan closely and not give up.

The best part about this 2 Months 20 Pounds plan is that you will see real results fairly quickly, which in turn will encourage you to continue down your path of weight loss.

I know that when you see all of the weight you'll lose after the first eight weeks, you'll want to keep going.

Even after sixty days and twenty pounds lighter, you will likely want to maintain your transformed body for a lifetime of healthy living.

After seeing some results early on, you may still have moments when you get tired and want to give up. This is normal whenever your body is going through such a drastic change.

During these challenging times, it's important that you find ways to remind yourself WHY you have started doing this.

What I suggest all my members is to write down WHY you want to lose weight on a piece of paper.

Not on your phone, on a paper.

Writing it down in the old fashioned way.

With a marker or pen.

Then stick this piece of paper on your refrigerator or somewhere you’ll have to read it multiple times/day.

This simple thing is incredibly powerful as it constantly keeps reminding you WHY you are doing what you are doing.

You reasons might be unique to you.

Maybe you wish fit into that old pair of jeans, maybe you’re doing it for your health, maybe to be a role model for your kids, the reasons are varied. Whatever they are, write them down.

Secondly, one of the reasons people love this Lose 20 Pounds in 60 Days plan is that it is so simple. The plan was developed for people who need to lose weight in a big way, in a short period of time without complicated point systems (hello WW) and calorie counting.

To lose up to twenty pounds in sixty days you will only need to follow three simple steps.

These steps are all equally important, so take each one as seriously as the others and you'll see that weight drop off faster than you ever could have imagined.

The three steps are...

3 steps to lose 20 pounds

That's right, the three steps are as simple as: Eating, Working out and writing down what you exactly did.

Let's quickly go over the importance of each step and why they are so powerful for your weight loss.

1. EATING DURING THESE 60 DAYS

Unlike other diets, this plan does not ask you to starve yourself in any way. I ask you to eat as much as hunger dictates, just to eat the right foods at the right times (detailed below). Eating is never optional.


You must not give into the temptation to starve yourself in an effort to lose weight quicker because this could be hazardous to your health!


I have listed a long list of tasty and nutritious meals and snacks that will keep you healthy and help you to lose 20 pounds in the next 60 days. So eat well and lose weight the healthy way.

2. EXERCISING DURING THESE 2 MONTHS

Next, this plan also provides you with exercise suggestions that will have those unwanted pounds drop off of you in no time. As you know by now, the benefits of exercise cannot be overstated.


You will be exercising a minimum of just 30 to 40 minutes per day, and you will have a variety of exercises to choose from so that you can choose a type of exercise that fits you the most.


Whether you enjoy dancing, walking, running or aerobics, you can integrate these forms of exercise in this plan to help you achieve your weight loss goal.

3. IMPORTANCE OF JOTTING IT ALL DOWN

The most important part of your exercise routine will be your commitment to do it consistently. As a final step, I ask that you record your weight loss activities in a journal on a daily basis (download it here).


This small thing will help you to review your progress frequently and record how you feel about the process through the 2 months.


You'll be surprised how powerful this simple step is for keeping you on track and highly motivated to reach your weight loss goal.

With that said, you now longer have to ask “How can I lose 60lb in 2 months?” anymore as you are now ready to actually do it!

You have all the tools you need.

You have a powerful weight loss plan that will guide you to lose twenty pounds or more in just sixty days.

Let's get started.


2. Lose 20lb In 2 Months: 
The Structure

 The plan is a 6 Phase Program.

  • 1
     Days 1-10: The Activation Phase
  • 2
     Days 11-20: The Elimination Phase
  • 3
     Days 21-30: The Acceleration Phase
  • 4
     Days 31-40: The Confidence Phase
  • 5
     Days 41-50: The Maximization Phase
  • 6
     Days 51-60: The Transformation Stage
The first 10 days of the plan

The first week on the plan is the toughest because your body is going to clean out toxins from processed foods, sugars and salts. Initially you may feel sluggish, but after 3 or 4 days you will start to feel energized as your body re-balances itself to an intake of healthy foods.

Day 11 to 20 of the 2 month plan

During these ten days, your body becomes more responsive to the healthy fruit and vegetable intake and those clean foods combined with daily exercise will enhance and advance your weight loss in a positive direction.

From a food perspective you will eliminate sugar, corn, bread, dairy, wheat, oats, eggs and nuts from your diet in this phase.

Do not eat any of these foods this 10-day cycle. These food eliminations will target hidden food sensitivities that may have prevented you from losing weight in the past.

As you eliminate your food sensitivities you will eliminate pounds too. Food sensitivities are different from food allergies as the reaction is mostly internal and not seen with a physical reaction like allergies.
Days 21 to 30 of the program

During these ten days, your metabolism is higher and you will feel much better, more energized and you will start to see small physical changes as your weight starts to reduce. This week you will cycle between 3 regular food days and then 2 days of all liquid meals which includes fruit smoothies, veggie smoothies and soups.

The food cycle in this phase is as follows: 3-2-3-2

  • 3 regular food days
  • 2 liquid food days
  • 3 regular food days
  • Alternate Calendar
    2 liquid food days
Days 31 to 40

This week you are feeling stronger and more accomplished as you realize how far you have come since you started the plan. Daily exercise goes to a 45-minute minimum from this phase forward continuing through day 60.

Day 41 to 50 of the 8 week plan

This week may be the most challenging and the most rewarding at the same time. You will cycle through this phase with our special ‘2 for 2’ day rotation for maximum weight loss results.

This week you will cycle between 2 regular food days and then 2 days of all liquid meals which includes fruit smoothies, veggie smoothies and soups. The food cycle this phase is as follows: 2-2-2-2-2

  • 2 liquid food days
  • 2 regular food days
  • Alternate Calendar
    2 liquid food days
  • Alternate Calendar
    2 regular food days
  • Alternate Calendar
    2 liquid food days
  • Alternate Calendar
    2 regular food days
The last phase of the fat loss plan

This final phase of the plan is exciting as you realize you are almost there in reaching your weight loss goal.

As you look in the mirror you begin to see a new and improved you. No dairy and no wheat in this phase.

So that’s an overview of the next 60 days.

SPECIAL TIPGet a friend to join you!

Finding a diet buddy to do the plan with you along with completing the journal each day will increase your chances for success with the program.


Why? Because I have said this time and again - it’s all about having a support and accountability system to keep you on track. Nothing better than having a friend do it.

However, as a rule, do not repeat the same meal in the same day. Also, no salt and no sugar at any time.

However, you can squeeze some lemon, or sprinkle red pepper flakes and cayenne pepper for flavor as well as use seasonings that do not contain salt.

I also ask that you take a daily multivitamin each day after you have finished your lunch.

You should also drink a glass of water after each meal and after each snack. The bowl portion size should be a 1 cup bowl and chicken and fish portions should not exceed 4 ounces. You should drink at least 1 cup of coconut water a week. No alcohol.

A Note On The Meals That Will Soon Follow

The "Lose 20 Pounds In 2 Months" plan uses a universal meal plan that works for all body types. It takes into account any food sensitivities and includes foods that forces your body to let go of weight.


Careful attention has been given to the correct amount of nutrients that are vital to weight-loss success. There is a balance of protein, good carbohydrates and vitamins within this meal plan.


It is imperative to stay on the plan and eat your meals on time.


Eating the 3 recommended meals a day plus 2 snacks will keep you feeling full and satisfied while your body shifts into fat burning mode. It is also important for you not to skip meals because skipping meals will cause your body to go into fat storage mode.

8 glasses of water a day is a required a minimum with this plan.

I recommend 1 glass of water with each meal and with any snack.

Also, 1 cup of coconut water is recommended weekly.

Here are some optional drink additions when you need to add a little flavor to your day:

  • Milk - 1 cup a day max (unsweetened coconut milk, almond milk or soy milk) - Green tea 1 cup a day max
  • Fennel Tea 1 cup a day max
  • Coconut water 1 cup a day max
  • Check Square
    Pomegranate juice 1 cup a day max
  • Check Square
    Black coffee 1 cup a day max (¼ coconut milk or almond milk optional)

SPECIAL TIPBanana ice cream recipe

Freeze 2 bananas (already pilled) for 3 hours

Drop in blender with1 tsp of coconut water and 1/3 cup of coconut milk

*add ½ cup frozen strawberries if you want, or even strawberry flavor or a drop of vanilla extract for vanilla flavor or ¼ cup frozen berries for berry flavor.


Step 2 - Exercise

Exercise - During weeks 1-4, 30 minutes of exercise a day is required.

Your choice of exercise may include but is not limited to dancing, walking (not including time at stores), treadmill, aerobics, crunches, bicycle, yoga, cardio etc.

However, only exercise after you have eaten at least 1 meal.

Starting Phase 4, remember that the exercise requirement increases to 45 minutes of exercise a day minimum.

So here's the "How to Lose 20 Pounds in 2 Months" exercise plan! 

Basically, it is an accelerated combination of cardio and strength training cycles designed to help you improve your overall fitness level.

The recommended exercise quotient with this plan is 3 days of cardio with 3 days of strength training (work outs with weights), with one day of rest in between them.

Remember, 30 minutes of exercise a day is required during phases 1-3 and then the exercise time requirement increases as you enter phase 4.

You should also walk with leg weights twice a week. The exercise program is important because the ‘energy excursion’ will cause your body to go into fat burning mode. The important thing to remember with exercise is consistency.

Trust me, your desire and ability to exercise will increase daily. It is okay to work out at your own pace and you will still get a new shape.

Mix and Match Workouts

exercise program for 60 days

So basically, this is what you would be doing for the next 2 months, and trust me, this is the secret to losing those 20 pounds in 2 months (or even more than that!)...

Day 1: Cardio

Day 2: Weights

Day 3: Cardio

Day 4: Rest

Day 5: Weights

Day 6: Cardio

Day 7: Weights

Repeat for 8 weeks


Step 3 - Write It Down

Finally, I ask you to write a daily journal entry (download here) to document your daily meal selections and snacks and to document your 30-minute exercise of choice.

I have included a printable sheet so you can simply print it, and jot down the answers to the questions within.

I also ask that you make a short entry in the journal about how you are feeling each day and after every 10 days you will document your body weight and take a photo of yourself.

This is extremely important, a visual change is a FAR better parameter for success than a weight number.

Why?

Because when you are complementing the diet with a workout, you'll change the "shape" of your body. Which means you'll drop the fat, and gain some quality muscle (don't worry, this will bring out that highly desirable lean shape, not the body-builder look!).

So to explain the action plan in 3 simple steps:

  • 1
    Eat from a selection of 40 fat loss meals given above
  • 2
    Exercise at least 30 minutes a day 
  • 3
    Journal your success (very important, keeps you going)

With just these 3 steps, you can get started on your journey to lose up to 20 pounds in the next 60 days!


4. Losing 20 Pounds In 2 Months:
The Conclusion

Great job!

You should pat yourself on the back for reading all the way to the end of what I call the How To Lose 20 Pounds in 2 Months plan.

The fact that you have not given up at this point shows that you have a high level of commitment for achieving your weight loss goals.

You have what it takes to lose all the weight you desire because you know that your weight loss will be a direct result of the hard work and discipline you put forth to follow your weight-loss plan.

Are you excited?

You should be, because in just 60 days, you are going to lose 20 pounds (or more)!

Not only that, but you're getting closer to being in the best health you've been in your entire life.

As you begin to put this plan into action there are a few concepts you should focus on.

For one, don't worry about losing weight. Of course, I mean lol, it may seem ridiculous to not worry about losing weight since this is a weight loss plan.

However, it is important that you don't stress too much over losing weight because too much stress can actually cause you to not have as much weight loss as you desire and in some cases stress can actually cause you to gain weight.

So relax, follow the steps, and the weight loss will take care of itself.

The Lose Weight In 60 Days plan was designed without the need for you to worry about counting calories and stressing over what and what not to eat every day.

This frees your mind up to simply eat the foods laid out for you in the plan, exercise the way the plan advises you and monitor your progress at the times suggested in the plan, and your weight loss will take care of itself.

In addition to not worrying too much about losing weight, it is also important that you share your goals and experiences with a trusted friend.

If you know someone who has similar weight loss goals, share with them and ask them to be your “fast loss buddy”.

The purpose of having a friends to go through the same experience is to have someone who can help you to stay encouraged, accountable and on the right track, and at the same time help you to celebrate when you achieve certain milestones of achievement.

Just imagine, how great it would be if both of you lost 20 pounds at the end of these 2 months!

With that said…

You now have everything you need to lose twenty pounds in only sixty days.

You also have the exact times you should weigh yourself and the exact questions you should ask yourself each day (in the printable journal) to monitor your activities in your weight loss journal.

It is very important that you closely follow the plan to monitor your progress throughout the 60 days.

People who are experts in losing weight know that the way you monitor your progress is vital, it decides whether you will complete your plan and achieve your target weight.

For instance, some people sabotage their weight-loss goals because they weigh themselves too often.

They will start a diet program with bursts of excitement but weigh themselves after every exercise and get discouraged if they don't lose a huge amount of weight in only the first few days.

Others will not weigh themselves at all throughout the entire program because they are too afraid of seeing the results.

The Lose 20 Pounds in 2 months plan has taken this into account so that you don't over- or under- monitor your progress. You will want to weigh yourself once every ten days so that you can monitor your progress and be sure you are on track to reach your goals.

Since the Lose 20 Pounds in 2 months is a six-phase program, you will basically measure yourself at the end of each phase, which is when you should expect to see some level of weight-loss change.

I have found that this is the most balanced and effective way to monitor your progress while using the plan.

Just as people who are attempting to lose weight tend to not monitor their weight loss at the right times, people also tend to overlook the importance of keeping a journal that records their daily weight-loss activities.

Recording your daily weight-loss activities will go a long way toward keeping you on the right path of losing weight and living a healthy lifestyle.

In this Lose 20 Pounds in 2 Months daily journal you will find a series of questions designed to help you hold yourself accountable to every step in your weight-loss plan and monitor how your body is responding to the plan.

The journal asks “What meal selection did I eat for breakfast?", "What did I eat for snacks?" and "What did I do for my 30-minute exercise today?" just to name a few.

As you honestly answer each of the journal questions each day you will be increasing your chances of reaching your 20 pounds weight loss goal by checking in on yourself to make sure you are being consistent and make any adjustments you may need occasionally to get back on track.

You may have tried many other diets before you found this Lose 20 Pounds in 60 Days plan.

Or maybe this will be your first time trying to lose a large amount of weight in sixty days. Regardless of where you are in your weight-loss journey you should feel a great sense of pride that you have read this far and are committed to totally transforming your health.

Soon you will be able to smile at the new you in the mirror and celebrate your weight-loss success.

You'll no longer external aids like Plexus Slim, Shakeology, or any of those overpriced things again.

You will have transformed your body into the size you may have only been able to imagine in the past.

When this happens, be sure to make a commitment to keep the weight off and remain healthy for the rest of your life.

Losing twenty pounds in just 2 months is wonderful and satisfying, but staying healthy the rest of your life should be your ultimate goal.

Again, congratulations on your new transformed life!

Get started, carpe diem… seize the day, my friend…

    Hi Betty,
    This looks like a solid plan. But how long can I continue it?

    • Betty says:

      Hey Debbie,
      Thanks, and actually like I mentioned above, the plan is pulled right out of my paid program. I usually advise sticking it for 2 months, max 3.

      After that, I ask my members to transition to my long-term “No nonsense nutrition” plan, which is a long-term clean eating solution.
