How Can I Lose Ten Pounds in a Week?


Quick Answer

Be aware that losing weight in such a short amount of time is not healthy. Only use this advice if it is absolutely necessary. A more healthy way of losing weight is to aim for losing two pounds per week instead of 10, eating unprocessed foods such as vegetables, fruits, and lean meats. However, if losing 10 pounds in a week is imperative, this should work. However, the desired weight loss is not a guarantee, as every body works differently and burns calories at different rates.

  1. Drink plenty of water

    Losing weight requires drinking more than the typical 64 ounces of water per day. Try to get to around 100 ounces, making sure that the first 16 ounces come within a few minutes after waking up. This will get the metabolism going. Also avoid coffee, soda, and sugary juices. Stick to water and green tea.

  2. Start the day with a walk

    After drinking two glasses of water, start the morning with a 15 to 30 minute walk. This will enhance the calorie burning process, meaning that by the time you eat something, your body will already be working it off.

  3. Eat six or more small meals per day

    Eating six smaller meals a day keeps the body revved up and the metabolism going. Make sure the six meals consist of mostly steamed or raw vegetables paired with a small portion (around 3 ounces) of lean meat, such as chicken or fish.

  4. Eliminate all carbohydrates

    The body has a hard time processing carbohydrates, so it is much harder to lose weight when eating carbohydrates.

  5. Get plenty of sleep

    The body needs more rest when it is working hard to burn calories quickly. This is because it is using more energy than it normally does. For this reason, eight to 10 hours of sleep is needed.
