Do you need to lose weight quickly? Are you carrying extra weight on your body, and you just can’t seem to get rid of it?
Have you tried everything you know, and you still can’t lose weight quickly or slowly?
Well, today I want to tell you how you can lose 10 lb in 10 days without losing your mind or losing your life.
Most health, Fitness, and Nutrition experts recommend losing a few pounds per month, but if you have been struggling with your weight, you already know that waiting to shed that excess fat is depressing.
In your mind, you probably feel like the weight snuck up on you suddenly. And so you want to get rid of it as fast as possible.
Today, we’re going to show you how you can lose weight quickly without putting your health in jeopardy.
What Is The First Thing You Think About Losing Weight Quickly?
I don’t know about you, but whenever I read advertisements about quick working weight loss products, I always think it’s a scam.
That’s because I know how the body works add a macro and micro-level. Most of the time, the quick weight loss hacks that I’ve seen are dangerous and unsustainable over the long haul.
The reason for this is because most quick methods for losing weight don’t take into account what the body needs to survive for 6 months to a year at a time.
Instead, most of the quick weight loss hacks you can find online are only considering what your body needs for the next few days.
For example, juicing is an incredible way to increase the nutrients you’re getting at the cellular level; however, juicing is not healthy, long-term, because your body needs protein.
Unfortunately, fruit and vegetable juice doesn’t have the amounts of protein your body needs for great brain health and to repair muscles and tendons while you’re resting at night.
So, yes. Juicing works! But it wasn’t meant to be used for months on end. You would actually end up doing more damage if all you did was juice for 4 months to lose weight.
So What Is The Healthy Way To Lose 10 Pounds In 10 Days?
The healthiest way to lose 10 pounds in 10 days is to start off by understanding that you’re not going to lose 10 pounds of pure fat in 10 days.
That is simply impossible, and anyone who tells you otherwise is lying to you. Sorry to be so upfront about it, but I see people getting hurt and disappointed by bad health and fitness advice.
I simply refuse to participate in that kind of behavior.
The truth is that the majority of the weight you’re going to lose during these 10 days will be water weight. Now, that’s not a bad thing if your goal is actually to drop 10 pounds quickly.
Getting rid of water weight is the first step in all weight loss.
Step 1: Detoxify Your Body!
Now, I’m using the word “detox” kind of tongue-in-cheek, here. The fact is your liver, kidneys, intestines, and skin all do a great job of detoxifying your body.
Every time you sweat, go potty, cry, or even take a shower, you are detoxing and cleaning your body on the inside or outside.
For the purposes of losing weight, you going to detox by cutting out all junk and processed food, all excess sugar, any foods you are allergic to or sensitive to, and foods with high sugar levels.
Basically, you’re going to want to eat lots of vegetables, lean cuts of meat, and some fruits. Whatever you eat, just make sure it has a low glycemic index (sugar level) so it won’t raise your blood sugar levels too high.
The purpose of this detox is not just about sugar. It’s about giving your metabolism a chance to work the way it’s supposed to.
When you remove all the processed foods and excess sugar, your liver can operate in an environment that’s not as toxic. So can your kidneys. Together, these two organs make up a huge part of your metabolism.
When they are not working properly, it’s always going to be hard for you to lose weight.
It’s going to take you some willpower, but detoxing your diet is the first and most important step. If you don’t do this part, you can forget losing weight quickly in 10 days time.
Step 2: Pig Out!
Now, I know it reads strangely for me to tell you to pig out after telling you to detox your diet. But I haven’t lost my mind.
After you detox your diet, you can actually eat as much as you want to. Getting healthy and losing weight quickly is not about starving yourself or being miserable.
It’s about eating the food your body craves. Fruit, vegetables, and protein all have nutrition in them, but we don’t get the full benefit of eating them because we’re so busy padding our diet with processed meals and junk food.
Once you get rid of all the bad things in your diet, you can literally eat whatever you want… because there’s nothing bad or unhealthy available to you.
Now, a lot of times when I tell people that they can eat as much as they want of their healthy food options, they look at me sideways.
But I tell them to do it anyway.
Everyone knows you can eat an entire bag of potato chips in under 7 minutes, but when was the last time you tried to eat an entire chicken in under 7 minutes?
Sounds ridiculous, right? Well, you should try it just so you know I am telling you the truth. Just know that you won’t be able to do it.
Yes, it’s healthy, and yes the chicken tastes amazing.
But your body only has so much capacity for nutrients…
…and when it has had enough, you’re naturally not as hungry, anymore.
It doesn’t work like that with potato chips, though. That’s because potato chips do not have the nutrition your body needs. The only thing a bag of potato chips will satisfy is a craving for something crunchy and salty.
Mother nature knows best, and you’ll be better off eating foods that grow from the ground or have another animals as parents.
I’m not going to get into how many grams of proteins or how many milligrams of Vitamin C you need. Just know that you should have lots of colors on your plate at every meal, and you don’t want to overdo it with fruit.
Mind you, fruit is high in fiber, high in water content, and it’s a much better snack then eating candy late at night…but it still has sugar in it. The sugar you will get from eating fruit is a healthy sugar, but nothing is good for us in excess.
So watch your fruit intake!
That’s How You Lose 10 Pounds In 10 Days – The Healthy Way!
You may have noticed that I did not mention exercise at all in this article. There’s a reason for that.
For years, fitness professionals have been waging a war about what is more important – diet or exercise? The truth is both are important, but diet has way more impact on your weight than how much you exercise.
In fact, I know people who have lost loads of weight with absolutely no exercise, whatsoever.
The most exercise they did was walking to the bathroom, walking to the kitchen, or walking outside to get in the car.
Instead of working out, they only ate whole foods. They drank water, and they walked in order to get from one place to another. Not to exercise!
Those kinds of people are the outliers.
What I normally recommend is walking 30 minutes to an hour every day. That is something that’s easy for anyone to do, and it won’t require you getting a personal trainer in order to learn how to walk longer. If you want to walk longer, you’ll just stay outside longer.
(If you are under a doctor’s care, have recently had surgery, or are in physical therapy, please make sure you discuss rapid weight loss with them first, ok? I don’t want you to do anything that conflicts with your doctor’s orders!)
To be clear, if you don’t exercise, you’ll still lose weight, but it just won’t be as quickly.
Taking walks for 30-60 minutes will boost your metabolism and make you burn fat a lot faster. You can walk in your home (on the stairs or through the hallways in your home), in your neighborhood, in the gym, or at a local track.
