Lose Weight In 10 Days-5 Easy Steps To Lose Weight Naturally in 10 Days

Have a goal to lose weight in 10 days? Do you want to drop perhaps 2-5 pounds during this period? It can be done! I don't believe in fad and crash diets simply because once people come off those crazy diets, the weight usually comes back on plus a few extra pounds.

I do believe in losing weight by creating simple, yet effective habits and doing it gradually. So, if you want to lose weight in 10 days, here are 5 natural steps you can take.

5 Quick Tips to Lose Weight Fast Naturally in 10 Days!

So you are interested in getting a flat stomach and want to know how to lose weight fast naturally? Well, here are 5 quick tips for losing weight quickly and burning the fat that worked wonders for me! And you can get started right away.
1. More Fruits, More Veggies More Fat Loss Power!
Got a sweet tooth? Eat more fruit
Grab an apple,orange or a mango instead of reaching for a sugery snack.This will satisfy your urge for sweets and give you the essential vitamins and minerals you need to power through your day and help you lose weight fast. At meals fill up on raw or steamed vegetables. Remember think organic! (if you can afford it). Aside from being low calorie most veggies are a great natural source of fiber which will help you lose weight fast naturally by keeping you regular.
2. Forget about the super-sized Pepsi!
I know it tastes good and all but what your body really needs is water.
Aside from all the empty calories, alcoholic and soft drinks (with caffeine) will actually drain your body of the water it needs to function properly. Just drink plain water. Don't be fooled into thinking that just because a beverage contains 99% water, that it is just as good as water. It is not!
Plus, drinking ice water can actually help you to burn fat! Make sure you drink at least 2 liters a day this will flush your system of impurities. Tired of drinking just water? Try green tea! Green tea contains some powerful antioxidants which keep you healthy which is important if you want to lose weight fast, naturally,
3. More Whole Grains Less Processed Foods
Have you looked at the list of ingredients for most commercially prepared foods? You don't need all those preservatives, artificial colors and added sugar. Also the fat and sodium levels are usually off the chart!
To burn fat and lose weight successfully you need to have a steady supply of good carbohydrates like potatoes,brown rice and oats, to name a just a few.
4. There are Good Fats and There are Bad Fats
Saturated and trans-fats should be avoided as much as possible. You can boost your immune system by eating foods that contain omega fatty acids, things like olive oil and fresh fish ( You can boost your immune system by eating foods that contain omega fatty acids, things like olive oil and fresh fish (also good for hair and nails!).
Avoid the farmed fish if you can.
5. Pay Attention To Your Meals!
A recent study showed that roughly 73% of North Americans regularly eat their meals in front of the television. Have you done that recently? Have you ever been so absorbed in a TV program that you were surprised that your plate was already empty? Me,too!

If you are serious about losing weight:
  • Turn off the boob tube
  • Take your time and eat slowly. When your belly is full there is actually a delay of a few minutes before your brain gets the message. That's why many people over-indulge on the holidays and end up like bloated whales on the sofa gripping their swollen bellies!
  • Chew your food 32 times before swallowing (this gives your saliva time to do it's magic and properly prepare the food for speedy digestion)
So, if you reduce your portions,get plenty of fiber,fruits and vegetables and lean protein in addition to drinking plenty of water you will find the weight will be melting off you.
Of course, a proper diet is only half of the equation in losing weight quickly.A regular exercise regimen can help you lose weight fast naturally in the shortest amount of time. This is what helped me to lose 50 pounds and get a flat stomach.
But I also had a secret weapon!
Following a simple plan I was able to achieve my weight loss goals and the results were dramatic!

Easy Diet Plans To Lose Weight Fast By 

Choosing the right diet plan for you can take a bit of research on your part. Each day, millions of people choose to lose unwanted pounds by following diet plans to lose weight fast. No matter why you want to lose those pounds, the first step is to pick a good diet that you can stick to. Here are a few tips to help you lose unwanted inches.
Not all diet and exercise programs are safe for all people. Check with your physician first to be sure you are healthy enough for the program you choose. This is especially true if you have any health related condition or an eating disorder.
These programs need to be simple to follow and still allow you to eat enough to feel full. Without these two key points, your program may be destined to fail before you even begin. In these cases, you may lose a little weight and then gain it right back and maybe even more.
Success may depend on your ability to be patient. There is no way to simply drop pounds overnight. The human body needs time to adjust to the changes and begin to drop the weight. Know what is normal for you and judge your success by that. Losing weight takes commitment and no plan will work unless you stay with it.
Drinking water and getting enough exercise can help you shed pounds and keep them off, keep you hydrated during exercise, helps you to curb your appetite, and flushes chemicals and fat from the body. Exercise tones muscles, which helps you look thinner, and boosts metabolism which is how we burn fat and calories.
Don't cut calories by too much. This is a common mistake that can doom a diet to fail before you even start. Your body needs energy from food to keep you going and aide in the weight loss process. Keep it simple but keep it healthy as well.
Choosing the right foods can make a huge difference in your daily diet. Foods should be low in calories but high in nutrition and essential vitamins. This helps to meet your body's daily needs while still eating enough to feel full and cut calories enough to shed unwanted pounds safely.
Find a diet plan to lose weight fast and start on your journey to a healthier you. You can look better and feel great with a few simple steps designed with you in mind. Check out what is available today.
You can lose weight fast and still keep nutritional quality in your diet. Healthy eating can allow you to lose weight fast while still enjoying some of your favorite foods.

15 Common Myths About Weight Loss, Nutrition, And Diet

Part 3 of 3 - How Much Do You Really Know About Weight Loss And Nutrition?

By , Guide
Updated November 18, 2006

Myth #13: Eating red meat is bad for your health and makes it harder to lose weight.

Fact: Eating lean meat in small amounts can be part of a healthy weight-loss plan. Red meat, pork, chicken, and fish contain some cholesterol and saturated fat (the least healthy kind of fat). They also contain healthy nutrients like protein, iron, and zinc.
Tip: Choose cuts of meat that are lower in fat and trim all visible fat. Lower fat meats include:
  • pork tenderloin
  • beef round steak
  • tenderloin
  • sirloin tip
  • flank steak
  • extra lean ground beef
Also, pay attention to portion size. One serving is 2 to 3 ounces of cooked meat—about the size of a deck of cards.

Myth #14: Dairy products are fattening and unhealthy.

Fact: Low-fat and nonfat milk, yogurt, and cheese are just as nutritious as whole milk dairy products, but they are lower in fat and calories. Dairy products have many nutrients your body needs. They offer protein to build muscles and help organs work properly, and calcium to strengthen bones. Most milks and some yogurts are fortified with vitamin D to help your body use calcium.
Tip: The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend that people aged 9 to 18 and over age 50 have three servings of milk, yogurt, and cheese a day. Adults aged 19 to 49 need two servings a day, even when trying to lose weight. A serving is equal to 1 cup of milk or yogurt, 1½ ounces of natural cheese such as cheddar, or 2 ounces of processed cheese such as American. Choose low-fat or nonfat dairy products including:
  • milk
  • yogurt
  • cheese
  • ice cream
If you cannot digest lactose (the sugar found in dairy products), choose low-lactose or lactose-free dairy products, or other foods and beverages that offer calcium and vitamin D (listed below).

  • Calcium: fortified fruit juice, soy-based beverage, or tofu made with calcium sulfate; canned salmon; dark leafy greens like collards or kale

  • Vitamin D: fortified fruit juice, soy-based beverage, or cereal (getting some sunlight on your skin also gives you a small amount of vitamin D

  • Myth #15: "Going vegetarian" means you are sure to lose weight and be healthier.

    Fact: Research shows that people who follow a vegetarian eating plan, on average, eat fewer calories and less fat than non-vegetarians. They also tend to have lower body weights relative to their heights than non-vegetarians. Choosing a vegetarian eating plan with a low fat content may be helpful for weight loss. But vegetarians—like non-vegetarians—can make food choices that contribute to weight gain, like eating large amounts of high-fat, high-calorie foods or foods with little or no nutritional value.
    Vegetarian diets should be as carefully planned as non-vegetarian diets to make sure they are balanced. Nutrients that non-vegetarians normally get from animal products, but that are not always found in a vegetarian eating plan, are:
    • iron
    • calcium
    • vitamin D
    • vitamin B12
    • zinc
    • protein

  • Vegetarianism

  • Tip: Choose a vegetarian eating plan that is low in fat and that provides all of the nutrients your body needs. Food and beverage sources of nutrients that may be lacking in a vegetarian diet are listed below.

  • Iron: cashews, spinach, lentils, garbanzo beans, fortified bread or cereal

  • Calcium: dairy products, fortified soy-based beverages or fruit juices, tofu made with calcium sulfate, collard greens, kale, broccoli

  • Vitamin D: fortified foods and beverages including milk, soy-based beverages, fruit juices, or cereal

  • Vitamin B12: eggs, dairy products, fortified cereal or soy-based beverages, tempeh, miso (tempeh and miso are foods made from soybeans)

  • Zinc: whole grains (especially the germ and bran of the grain), nuts, tofu, leafy vegetables (spinach, cabbage, lettuce) Protein: eggs, dairy products, beans, peas, nuts, seeds, tofu, tempeh, soy-based burgers.

    15 Common Myths About Weight Loss, Nutrition, And Diet

    Part 2 of 3 - How Much Do You Really Know About Weight Loss And Nutrition?

    Myth #6: "I can lose weight while eating whatever I want."

    Fact: To lose weight, you need to use more calories than you eat. It is possible to eat any kind of food you want and lose weight. You need to limit the number of calories you eat every day and/or increase your daily physical activity. Portion control is the key. Try eating smaller amounts of food and choosing foods that are low in calories.

  • How To Recognize And Control Food Portions

  • Tip: When trying to lose weight, you can still eat your favorite foods, as long as you pay attention to the total number of calories that you eat.

    Myth #7: Low-fat or nonfat means no calories.

    Fact: A low-fat or nonfat food is often lower in calories than the same size portion of the full-fat product. But many processed low-fat or nonfat foods have just as many calories as the full-fat version of the same food or even more calories. They may contain added sugar, flour, or starch thickeners to improve flavor and texture after fat is removed. These ingredients add calories.
    Tip: Read the Nutrition Facts Label on a food package to find out how many calories are in a serving. Check the serving size too it may be less than you are used to eating.

  • Energize Yourself and Your Family

  • Myth #8: Fast foods are always an unhealthy choice and you should not eat them when dieting.

    Fact: Fast foods can be part of a healthy weight loss program with a little bit of know-how.
    Tip: Avoid supersize combo meals, or split one with a friend. Sip on water or nonfat milk instead of soda. Choose salads and grilled foods, like a grilled chicken breast sandwich or small hamburger. Try a "fresco" taco (with salsa instead of cheese or sauce) at taco stands. Fried foods, like French fries and fried chicken, are high in fat and calories, so order them only once in a while, order a small portion, or split an order with a friend. Also, use only small amounts of high-fat, high-calorie toppings, like:
    • regular mayonnaise
    • salad dressings
    • bacon
    • cheese

    Myth #9: Skipping meals is a good way to lose weight.

    Fact: Studies show that people who skip breakfast and eat fewer times during the day tend to be heavier than people who eat a healthy breakfast and eat four or five times a day. This may be because people who skip meals tend to feel hungrier later on, and eat more than they normally would. It may also be that eating many small meals throughout the day helps people control their appetites.
    Tip: Eat small meals throughout the day that include a variety of healthy, low-fat, low-calorie foods.

  • Healthy Eating and Physical Activity Across Your Lifespan: Tips for Adults

  • Myth #10: Eating after 8 p.m. causes weight gain.

    Fact: It does not matter what time of day you eat. It is what and how much you eat and how much physical activity you do during the whole day that determines whether you gain, lose, or maintain your weight. No matter when you eat, your body will store extra calories as fat.
    Tip: If you want to have a snack before bedtime, think first about how many calories you have eaten that day. And try to avoid snacking in front of the TV at night it may be easier to overeat when you are distracted by the television.

    Myth #11: Lifting weights is not good to do if you want to lose weight, because it will make you "bulk up."

    Fact: Lifting weights or doing strengthening activities like push-ups and crunches on a regular basis can actually help you maintain or lose weight. These activities can help you build muscle, and muscle burns more calories than body fat. So if you have more muscle, you burn more calories—even sitting still. Doing strengthening activities 2 or 3 days a week will not "bulk you up." Only intense strength training, combined with a certain genetic background, can build very large muscles.
    Tip: In addition to doing at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity (like walking 2 miles in 30 minutes) on most days of the week, try to do strengthening activities 2 to 3 days a week. You can:
    • lift weights
    • use large rubber bands (resistance bands)
    • do push-ups or sit-ups
    • do household or garden tasks that make you lift or dig

    Myth #12: Nuts are fattening and you should not eat them if you want to lose weight.

    Fact: In small amounts, nuts can be part of a healthy weight loss program. Nuts are high in calories and fat. However, most nuts contain healthy fats that do not clog arteries. Nuts are also good sources of protein, dietary fiber, and minerals including magnesium and copper.
    Tip: Enjoy small portions of nuts. One-third cup of mixed nuts has about 270 calories.
