How Lose Ten Pounds in One Week
There are "diets" that claim a person can lose 10 pounds in a week, but only a few of them will actually work for some people. Some of those diets actually suggest no eating at all in order to lose weight, which is simply unhealthy. The best plan for weight loss over any period of time is getting control of the type and amount of foods that are eaten. According to WebMD.com, Dr. Michael Dansinger, the MD for NBC's Biggest Loser show says, "There is nothing is wrong with losing weight rapidly -- as long you do it the right way."
Seven Day Diet that Promises Quick Weight LossDay one starts with a cleansing detox drink made from one cup of water, one cup of lemon juice, honey, and slices of ginger. Make enough for the whole day and drink this when feeling hungry. Day two is eating lots of fruits and plants with small meals including lean fish or chicken, no beef. Day three adds two pieces of apple and a cup of black beans to each meal. This adds fiber and jump starts weight loss. Day four begins with a big breakfast consisting of cereals and grains such as a whole grain cereal with skim milk, whole wheat toast or bagel.
On day five, take note of calorie intake over each of the past four days and now spread that daily average caloric intake throughout the day, eating five or six small meals. Day six is maintenance of the progress made in previous days. Continue cutting more sugar and fat from the diet. For example, eat yogurt rather than ice cream. Day seven adds fresh juice from a juicer (no bottled, canned, or frozen juices) and green tea to the diet.
The Need for ExerciseAccording to WebMD, cardiovascular exercise is essential to weight loss. There is no need to spend a wad of cash on an expensive gym membership or buy some fancy piece of equipment. Cardiovascular exercise is the sort of exercise that gets the heart racing and includes walking, jogging, running, elliptical training, jumping jacks, etc. Cardiovascular exercises should be done in the morning to jump start the metabolism and help burn more calories throughout the entire day. Get up 20 minutes earlier every day, get out there and get that heart pumping.
Pilates is a type of exercise that tones and flexes the muscles and connective tissues. These exercise concentrate the effort and effect on specific areas of the body including buttocks, thighs, legs, and abdominal muscles. Pilates will not only help to lose that 10 pounds, but also distribute the weight evenly while toning the best, more shapely parts of a body. Pilates is also low impact and can be done anywhere, even at home. Unlike cardiovascular exercises, Pilates does not increase the heart rate as much so it can be performed in the evening just before bedtime.
If there is a program or method out there promising to lose ten pounds in a week without exercise, it's probably not the healthiest or safest process. Simply put, exercise increases the energy level and metabolism which makes your body able to burn more calories and lose weight. The most healthy combination to lose 10 pounds in a week is lots of exercise along with a very specific diet plan.
Sugar, saturated fats, sodas, fruit juices, cookies, ice cream, etc. will have to be eliminated totally from the diet. It's also important is drinking six to eight glasses of water every day
