How to lose weight in two weeks is my gift to a good friend Jeff who asked me for a quick start guide to slashing his body fat. He has always been competitive and athletic, but he wants to reduce the extra layers of fat that he is carrying right now which he thought were due to age. He has seen with his own eyes that is it not all about age. Even people who are over 55, over 50 and for sure are over 40, can make the same incredible progress. So Jeff and anyone else out there who wants to follow along and use the Hashi Mashi Quick Start Guide, please do.
Jeff began the program on May 1. Today on May 2 he updated his weight table. You can see below that in only one day, he took off over 2lbs of weight and 2lbs of fat. He is even more motivated now. I told him to just go steady, one day at a time. He is anxious about the weekend. He is not sure how to lose weight in two weeks while navigating through the weekend. The plan I gave him is to just stay the course, vegetables are number one, some lean protein and enjoy a glass of dry red wine if he is socializing.

Here is an example photo of a vegetable heavy breakfast, first the ingredients:
