If you’re freaking out, because you really need to lose 10 pounds in a week, I’m gonna be a good girl and share the 5 tips I have used in the past. I was able to lose weight whenever I needed and will help you too… IF you decide to use them, of course.
They do not work if you skim over them 🙂
So – if you’re planning a vacation soon, going to a wedding or you saw yourself in a mirror eating pizza, and you did not like what you saw, calm down. Read through the tips I am about to share and see what you can do to get that weight off.
A few times in my life, I simply had to lose 10 pounds in a week. Well, sometimes even in a matter of days.
10 pounds actually isn’t too much weight to lose. If you set a clear goal, you can achieve it! Make these tips work for a week or two, and the fat will basically fall off your belly.
5 TIPS THAT HELPED ME TO LOSE 10 POUNDS IN A WEEK
1. EAT A SATIATING BREAKFAST.
Let all those doughnuts, croissants and sweet smoothies for someone else.
You need solid food like ham and eggs or good old oatmeal right now. Combine that with some nuts and fruit, and you’ll be all good until lunch. If you’re feeling fancy, an avocado & egg toast will be a go-to choice for you.
2. IF YOU’RE TOO HUNGRY, DRINK SOME WATER FIRST
When you remember to reach first for water instead of food, you realize you’re almost never eating. You are simply never too hungry. You’re eating usually because of habit, or even because you’re bored.
This simple change will make you feel fully energized.
3. GET SOME EXERCISE
Do not freak out. I am not a gym junkie ad you do not need to either.
But do get a bit physical every day. It can be a walk or a short jog. 30 minutes is more than enough.
Stop by for a yoga or pilates class. Your face will get thinner and you will be radiating that happy glow. Trust me.
But remember – always go at your own pace. There is no need to stress.
4. LOW IN CARBS AFTER 3 PM
My personal problem with the low-carb diet is that I need some balance in my life. Cannot eat just meat with veggies and then some more meat again.
I love my carbs 🙂
But – if you need to lose a chunk of fat fast, you need to make at least some sacrifice (sorry…).
But I promise you, it is just a small one.
At the same time, it is a huge thing, because this tip alone could make you skinny.
So – Do not eat carbs after 3 pm.
Do not be sad though (no pasta and pizza dinners this month). Your friends will be so jealous of your 2-3 sizes smaller body so it is well worth it.
5. STOP EATING AT 7 PM
Some people may say not eating after a certain hour is overrated. But it works for me. I can lose 5 pounds in 2 weeks doing this whenever I need to. And I love waking up with a flat stomach.
This can be considered as intermittent fasting, but I prefer to call it “not eating too late in the evening”.
When you go to bed without being able to digest all the food you just ate, your beauty sleep suffers. Not eating after 7 pm will give you enough time to digest, so you will sleep well. You can even experience with pushing this back to 5 PM if you are feeling adventurous 🙂
- Start your day with a satiating breakfast,
- Reach for water first when you are hungry,
- Do not eat carbs after 3 PM,
- Stop eating at 7 PM,
- Exercise for 20 minutes daily, walk or jog outside or go to the gym.
Alright, I realize that these tips are not “genius”, but these actually work, so I really wanted to share them.
All you need to do now is to try them for yourself and I am sure you’ll start seeing results very soon!
