Lose 10 Pounds In A Week

Mar 16, 2008
Do you have a reunion to attend in a few weeks or even a week? Are you gearing up for spring break or summer and want to shed some weight before you hit the beach or the pool? Want to lose 10 pounds in a week? What ever your reason is I am here to tell you that it is possible and the great thing is you will not have to starve yourself.

The plain and simple fact of the matter is, if you plan on losing weight then you just need to burn more calories than you take in. However, there are other little tips and tricks that I have that will help you burn more fat off and hopefully help you to drop off that excess weight so you can fit into that bathing suit, dress or for the guys - those new slacks.

The first thing that you should start doing is drinking more water. You will notice a huge difference if the majority of fluids you drink is soda or coffee. Your body is very smart, so if you are not drinking a lot of water it will retain water, hence that bloated feeling you get and that extra layer of water weight around your waistline. Get ample water and make sure you are not carrying that excess water weight with you. Keeping hydrated is also a key factor if you intend on exercising to lose weight.

Eat smaller more frequent meals to shoot your metabolism through the roof. Much like your body retaining water if it is not getting enough of it, your body's metabolism will go into conservation mode if you are only eating a few large meals a day. Are you always rushing out of the house in the morning and skipping breakfast? Are you only eating a large lunch and dinner? If you are, my guess is you have trouble losing weight. The reason is because your body slows your metabolism down because it knows you are only eating twice a day. Eating five to six smaller meals a day will have the exact opposite effect and will have you burning fat faster.

Pump up your cardio work. How do you do this? By making small changes in your daily routine. Take the stairs instead of the elevator, park in a stall further away and get the extra walking in, go for a walk on your lunch break. Also, get some time in the morning or afternoon for 20-30 minutes of cardio work. Whether that be walking, jogging, running or biking, make sure to get yourself going and burning extra calories. Working out in the morning on an empty stomach also has a great effect, as it burns fat faster.

Following these three tips will give you the best chance at losing weight as quickly as possible. If you want to lose 10 pounds in a week, just be smart about it and do not sacrifice your health by going on a crash diet or popping fat burners for the sake of vanity. Take the right steps and you will be slipping into that new dress or slacks in no time!
