Lose 10 Pounds Fast - New Secret Methods

Jul 15, 2008
Are you wanting to lose 10 pounds fast in time for swimsuit season, a wedding, a special vacation or any other special occasion that may be happening in your life fairly soon? Depending on how long you have, it is definitely possible. You can definitely lose 10 pounds healthy in about 4 weeks! It is important that you do not try and do it quicker than that, because it is unhealthy for your body if you do that, and you will most likely end up gaining that back as well as an extra few pounds.

It is recommended that we try to lose no more than 2 or 3 pounds a week, depending on the person and their body. This goal is easily attainable with exercise and eating right. You will not need to buy any diet pills or buy anything more than you already do to be able to lost 10 pounds fast! The smartest and healthiest way to do this is to step up your work out and exercise routine a couple notches. If you typically work out 30 minutes a day, step it up to 60 or 90 minutes a day. If you work out 3-4 times a week, step it up to 5-6 times a week.

There are two important kinds of exercise you will need to do, cardio and strength training. With Cardio, you are able to exercise your heart, burn calories and get your energy level up. With the strength training, you will be turning your fat into muscle and toning your body, and burning some calories as well. It is best if you do both kinds each time you exercise. It is possible to split up your exercise and work out routine to 30 minutes morning and evening, or whatever works best for your schedule.

If you do decide to split up your work out time, it is recommended that you do cardio in the morning, to get your heart beating and energy going, and strength training at night. With strength training, you will want to make sure that you warm up on the treadmill or a quick walk for as little as 5 minutes to get your heart rate up, and get your muscles warmed up. It is not necessary to go join a gym if you do not have the funds or the desire to do so. You can easily do cardio outside or inside by going on a brisk walk, jogging, running up and down the stairs, or playing any sport where you are continuously moving. Strength training can be lunges, squats, push ups, sit ups, pull ups, bicep and triceps curls with anything you are able to find in your house (a can of soup works well).

Along with stepping up the work out routine a couple notches, in order to lose 10 pounds fast, you will also need to take a look at what you're eating. It is recommended that you try to eat 6 small meals a day, instead of 3 big meals and 3 snacks. There are a few things that you need to make sure you have in your diet: protein, fiber, calcium and good fats. It is important that you drink plenty of water. The recommended amount is 64 ounces a day-either 8 oz. glasses a day. Along with fruits and vegetable which are good sources of the nutrients you need a day, you will also need meat or cheese for protein and fiber and a little dairy for the calcium.

Remember, you do not need to starve yourself in order to lose 10 pounds fast, in fact, that is definitely not the answer, and it will end up hurting you more in the end. By eating 6 small meals a day, you are able to eat less than you would usually, and yet, feel more satisfied throughout the day. Studies show that you feel less like snacking and grabbing the first thing in the kitchen, which is usually something quick and unhealthy! You will definitely be able to lose 10 pounds fast with simple changes in your work out and exercise routine and your eating habits!
