So you want to know how to lose 10 pounds fast and easy? Well, cut your arm or leg off and there you go, the fastest way possible to lose that weight! Now, do you want to lose that weight without having to lose a limb? I am more then likely sure you want to keep that arm or leg.
Lets get down to losing those 10 pounds, but first, Everyone is different, and everyone requires different methods used to lose that weight, but everyone has to follow some of the same particulars in any diet. Such as eating right, exercising correctly, and making sure you don’t strain yourself are some of those particulars.
Lets go over some of the “wrong” things you can do during a diet.
1: Not eat enough. By not eating enough, you cause your body to go into starvation mode. When your body does this, it will hold onto calories for as long as it can. So you can eat once a day, and work out like crazy, but in the end, your metabolism will not kick in, causing you mainly to lose water weight.
2: Exercise improperly. Exercising improperly will not only effect how many calories your body can burn, but you can also hurt yourself, sometimes badly.
3: Not drink enough water. On average, you really should be drinking 8 glasses of water a day. If you are working out, you should be drinking a few glasses more to replenish what your body releases to cool you down. If you are well hydrated, you can work out for longer periods of time as well, and not get nearly as tired as someone who isn’t drinking enough water.
4: Drinking soda, milk, and even juices. I’m sure you knew about the soda part, but milk and juice too. Both of these contain a decent amount of calories, and whole milk contains a quite a bit of fat too.
5: Not having a diet plan. If you just go on a “diet” you will NOT follow it to the “T”, you will fall out of it, then continue back on the path of gaining weight.
What you can do now
When you get dressed in the morning, or undressed at night, do you look at yourself and think that you might be a bit overweight. I do it, cause I am overweight. I am 5’2, and weigh in at 165 pounds, and just 4 years ago, back when I was 20 I weighed in at 130. That is 35 pounds in just 4 years UGH! Well, I guess that is what 2 kids will do to you, now don’t get me wrong, I am by far not the mother, I am the father, and well I was on the see food diet, I saw left over food, and I ate it. Which, you should not do, I am proof to that haha.
Now, me and you both want to lose weight, right? I do, so I have been searching the web for the best tips possible to lose weight. I wasn’t looking for those Atkins style diets either, I don’t want to starve to death before I lose weight. The South Beach diet is pretty much the same. I have however found quite a few interesting little tips on my search though, and I would like to share these with you.
Losing weight tips
1: Make sure you drink plenty of water, and not sodas, even diet soda isn’t good for you
2: Don’t just eat healthy, eat right. In order for your metabolism to work for you, instead of against you is to eat plenty during the day. I’m not talking about all day, I am talking about 5 meals a day. Now when I say meal, I don’t mean a meal that will fill you up and make you unbutton your pants. A meal can consist of an apple and a piece of cheese.
3: Exercise for at least 30 minutes. If exercise is a bit to much for you, go walking for 30 minutes, anything that gets your heart pumping a little bit will help you burn off some of those calories.
4: If you have that special someone, this tip is fun. Sex, you can burn about 5 calories a minute during sex. So figure if you have 30 minutes of sex, you can burn about 150 calories, not bad for something that feels good eh?
5: This one is for you breastfeeding mothers, and you might already know this, but if you don’t. You can burn up to 500 calories a day, with just feeding your baby. I guess it is a good benefit, especially since you are the one who went through that labor.
6: One of the best tips that I have found, is really to find the “right” diet plan for YOU. A diet plan will keep you in order, and help you on your way to losing 20+ pounds fast and easy. I have found the diet plan for me just the other day, Strip That Fat, a diet plan that consists of 80% diet, and 20% exercise. Their web based meal generator sets up 5 meals a day for you, so no more having to spend a ton of time figuring out what will be best to eat for you on that day!
