I have 2 weeks until I go on my vacation and I want to look as lean as possible. I'm in pretty good shape right now and my abs are coming through nicely.
What should I be doing during these last 2 weeks to look my best when I get to the beach? I'm still lifting and do about an hour of high speed walking a day. Protein is high, carbs are very limited, nothing refined, NO sugar, and calorie intake is under control.
Just want to keep a good pump and maximize fat loss until V day!
(BTW, this is not a last minute attempt to "get in shape" in 2 weeks. I'm already in shape but just want to be doing the the max I can in the 2 weeks I have left.)

sounds pretty solid, but you wont really lose TOO much if your abs are visible. couple pounds can make a difference, wouldnt lose more than 5 if i were you. Use the bodyfat % X Bodyweight X 30 to figure out your calorie deficiency and go from there deciding how much muscle you're willing to sacrificeRustlin' murse jimmies

To be honest, if you're still progressing, just keep doing what you're doing.
Even if your goal is a short 2 weeks away, why not plan for the future and create a plan to get to ~8% for most of the summer, so that way any spontaneous weekend/vacation type activities have you looking your best.
Rather than look at it as a goal, with a finale, look at it as a lifestyle change where the goal is health and fitness well into your 80s.
