In this day and age, everyone is looking for ways to lose weight. I have even done my research on ways to lose weight. During the research, I found 7 ways to lose 10 pounds in 10 days. I admit, losing 10 pounds in 10 days does not sound like it can be done. Also, it’s not good to lose too much weight in little time. However, for those of you who need to quickly lose weight for a pool party, beach party, wedding etc,this is for you.
7. Cut down on those useless calories

If you don’t need it, don’t eat/drink it. I’m talking about sodas, pastries, white bread, alcohol, fried food and candies. If you really want to lose weight in a little amount of time, then it would be a good idea for you to cut down on those excessive calories. Use a calorie counter to better help you decide what foods and drinks to skip.
6. Eat smaller meals, more often

This will help boost your metabolism which in turn will help you lose weight faster. It will also turn the food into energy instead of turning it into fat. This is going to help you to feel energized during the day and will curb your hunger.
5. Drink water every day

It is important that you drink eight to ten glasses of water every day. If you find that you “forget” to drink water at work or school, carry a big bottle of water with you and make sure you finish it before coming home. Also remember, many times when you think you’re hungry, all your body actually needs is some water. The best part is, water can help you lose weight and it has zero calories!
4. Limit the amount of carbohydrates you consume

In order to lose 10 pounds in seven days, you need to limit the amount of carbs you eat. Each pound of carbs that is stored in your body will result in three to five pounds of water packed into it.
3. Go on a juice diet

I hope you like juice, because a juice diet for three days is just what you need. This one is harsh and you need to make sure you do not use fruit that is rich in sugar. Also make sure that you pick juices that are as close to natural as possible. This means no added preservatives. It’s a great way to detox and lose some weight.
2. The master cleanse diet

Yes, this is quite a popular diet. The master cleanse diet is also known as the lemonade diet. This is where you will be consuming lemonade mixed with cayenne pepper and pure maple syrup. Since you are trying to lose 10 pounds in 7 days, then you should go on this for at least 5 days. This is going to get those toxins out of your body, which in return is going to give you more energy.
1. Exercise is important

I put this at number one, because it is the most important. You didn’t expect to lose 10 pounds without exercising, did you? There are many different exercises that you can try out. Go for a walk with your dog, take out your daughter’s hula hoop, try a belly dancing class or just head to the gym. My favorite tool is the exercise ball!
Again, I do not recommend losing a lot of weight in a little amount of time, but since you are in a hurry, I gave you the tips you needed. Have any of you lost 10 pounds in ten days?
