How to Lose 3 Pounds in 10 Days

September 3, 2009

Lot’s of people want to know how to lose 10 pounds in 3 days. Well, the truth of the matter is that that’s probably not gonna happen… at least not the way your want it to. Sure you could starve yourself and try to sweat off 10 lbs that quickly, but at least 90% of the weight will be from lost water and glycogen stored in your muscles… not fat. You will lose some muscle tissue and possibly even mess up your metabolism.

A much more realistic goal is to lose 3 pounds in 10 days. If you do it the right way, almost all of that will be from fat loss. Follow the healthy weight loss tips below and you could easily burn off pounds of ugly and stubborn fat while making yourself look a whole lot sexier!

Cut the Starch and Sugar: If you do nothing else but cut out simple sugars and starchy carbohydrates out of your diet you could easily lose weight quickly. Give it a try for 10 days and see for yourself.

Eat Like This: Eat 6 small meals per day. Each meal should contain lean protein, a non-starch carb (preferably veggies, fruit, or beans), and a small amount of healthy fat (natural peanut butter, olive oil, avocado, etc.). This simple eating plan is probably the best diet for losing pounds quickly.

Do Smart Exercise: Exercise at least 5 or 6 days a week. Do some form of weight lifting at least 3 days a week. This will burn lots of calories, reduce fat, tone your muscle, and help you look and feel better. Also do steady-state or interval cardio (like HIIT) a few times a week to speed up fat burning.

Next time you want to lose some weight fast, be realistic. Losing 10 pounds in 3 days is something few people are going to be able to do successfully and in a healthy way. Instead focus on a realistic goal like 3 lbs in ten days and follow the tips laid out above.
