Lose Weight in 10 days! - Health Tips

Of all that you are doing to lose weight, the one that will get you to smell success is what you are not doing. A diet plan stuck at the rear of the door, dumbbells just an arm’s length away, yoga mat spread straight as new and what not. Now, if using these for 60 minutes a day implies shopping for slim-fit clothes in 6 months, do you think you would be patient? Let’s be true to ourselves, we would drop the 4th day. And that is exactly why we have compiled a guide on how to lose weight in 10 days. Yes! Just 10 days.

How to Lose Weight in 10 days

To get started, here are a few things you ‘must’ have to lose weight by the 10th day.

  1. flight of stairs/treadmill
  2. Lots of water
  3. Fresh fruits and vegetables
  4. Fruit Juice
  5. Low-fat foods
  6. Fish/Meat

To be followed everyday:

Moderate exercise: If you are not suffering from high blood pressure, wake up early in the morning, freshen up and go for a 15 minutes’ walk in the park or walk up and down a flight of stairs. Increase the duration with each passing day. Walking shortly after lunch and dinner will also help you lose weight.

Drink lots of Water: But make sure you drink in accordance with your weight. For instance, if your body weight is 120lb divide it by 2 and drink as many ounces of water as the result every day. In this case, it is 60 ounces.

Sleep on time: Make sure that you do not stay up late. You must at least have 8 hours to yourself sleep and be fresh the following day. Also, eat two hours before heading to the bed.

Day by Day Schedule to lose weight in 10 days

Day 1
Eat only fresh fruits with a high level of anti-oxidants such as lemon, oranges, etc. The meals and snacks must strictly comprise fruits the first day. Fruits are more of water and essential nutrients and less of fat; therefore, eating them will only help you lose weight. To make low-calorie snacks out of fruits, you could prepare smoothies with low-fat yoghurt and lots of fruits. Pour in a glass of banana or apple smoothie to gratify hunger for a long time.

Day 2 and 3
Eat only vegetables. Some healthful vegetables that will help you in your efforts to lose weight in 10 days include broccoli, spinach, eggplant, etc. A cup of chopped vegetables such as tomatoes, cucumbers, leafy greens and bell peppers can substitute fatty snacks and thereby help you lose weight.

Day 4 and 5

Add two glasses of milk (once in the morning and once in the evening) to your vegetables-rich diet. For snacks, you may have a platter of steel-cut oats, pearled barley, long-grain brown rice, whole wheat bread, etc.

Day 6 and 7

Along with the vegetables, you may have low fat yoghurt, one egg, beans, 2 plates each of 250gms of pasta along with tomato sauce and fruit juice. A cup serving of fibre-rich foods, such as barley, raspberries, pears and whole wheat pasta can help cut hunger between meals. Fibre makes one feel full quickly, helping one lose weight.

Day 8 and 9

Drink vegetable soup along with two slices of any type of fish, preferably one that is low in fat. If you must eat soup outdoors, make sure it is not processed as they are filled with calories.

Day 10

Make sure you did all that is mentioned above and if you didn’t, gear-up for the following ten days.

If these tips to lose weight in 10 days sound implausible to you and you do nothing about the wobbly mirror image, here is something we can guarantee: disappointment. For the rest of you, happy sliming!
