Losing ten pounds in a week is not that difficult. It does require some cardio exercise and simple modifications to food you already eat.
The first thing you need is to drink plenty of water. Although it sounds weird, the more water you drink the less your body retains. If you are not drinking enough water your body will retain as much as it can to keep your body hydrated. You must drink spring water because it does not contain salt.
The second thing you must do is limit the carbs you eat. We are not fanatics of the many carb only diets out there that eliminate all the carbs in your diet. These diets are dangerous. We recommend you substitute unnecessary carbs for limited necessary carbs. Every time you eat lunch or dinner you should eat one portion of proteins, one portion of carbs, and one portion of vegetables. An example of an unnecessary carb is the 12 inches of bread you eat when you order a sandwich. When you are trying to rapidly lose weight you should eat a wrap instead of the bread. Most of today’s delis offer wraps as an alternative to their sandwiches. Another unnecessary carbs and the most popular are soft drinks. Apart from Alcohol, soft drinks are the worst things you could drink while trying to lose weight. Even the diet ones are bad. Substitute soft drinks for water. If you want to add some flavor to your water add some Crystal Light. Crystal Lights has on 5 calories per serving and no carbohydrates.
The third thing you must do is sweat. The more you sweat the better. Your body needs to get rid of the excess salt it has. They quickest way is by sweating. Walk, run, jog, ride a bike, jump rope, do cardio, etc. There are so many things you can do to sweat but there are two tips that will maximize the effort you spend. The first tip for sweating is that if you are going to do it at home turn the air conditioning off. For example, so many people have an exercise bike in their home. We recommend that if you have one put it in front of a TV so it will help you kill the time, but it will take much longer to sweat if your air conditioning is set 65 degres. Turn it off while you work out. The opposite if it is winter time. Leave the heat on during the winter. The second tip does require monetary investment. It will cost you about $ 8. Go to your favorite discount store like Wal-Mart, Target, K-mart, etc. In the sporting goods section look for a sauna suit. Sauna suits have been used by boxers for as long as I can remember. Even Muhammad Ali used it. Now they have become very popular among professional athletes in other sports. The sauna suit will increase your body temperature and make you sweat more in a much shorter amount of time. Try it for about 45 minutes and you will be surprised.
Remember the more you sweat the better it is and drink plenty of water. Drink at least 10 glasses of water per day.
