How To Lose The Last 10 Pounds Of Fat


how to lose 10 poundsTo get the final 10 pounds off, first make sure that you are actually eating the amount of food you think you are. You will likely benefit from weighing and measuring your food when possible, as estimating portion sizes can be inaccurate. I am not saying you should bring your food scale on a date, but if you are preparing meals at home it does not take much extra time to ensure your portions are correct. If you are only using this as a fast way to lose weight, then you’ll only want to indulge in one cheat day during your two-week period. However, I now give myself every Saturday as a cheat day. I believe that this cheat day is important for a number of reasons. Personally, I find the cheat day important because it gives you something to look forward to.

how to lose 10 poundsThis diet is a huge change from most Westerners’ lifestyles. With the diet comes a lot of cravings, especially in the beginning. I would make a little note of anything that I was craving and made sure I went out and bought it Saturday morning. Supper (and evening snack) - 1/2 large poutine, a few garlic fingers and 7 slices of a 16″ large pizza from Alexandras Pizza. I'm sure there's science behind this, but here's what I know: I'm always less hungry and therefore eat less when I have four or five almonds 15 minutes before a meal. Plus a little healthy fat is good for you. 4. Drink a glass of water just before every meal.

Drink it on an empty stomach to purify and detox your body from toxins and also kickstart your metabolism. Now, half an hour after you’ve drunk the glass of water, it is time to think about breakfast. What you want are fruits. Now everyone who tells you can eat fruits through the whole day is not being honest with you.

12. Keep a food journal.

If you're new to exercise, trying to exert yourself for an hour or more per day may not be realistic; your weight-loss goal will most likely have to be modified. Weight training helps you maintain muscle mass as you lose weight. When you lose muscle, your metabolism diminishes, which makes weight loss harder. Go for at least two sessions per week on non-consecutive days. 12. Keep a food journal. The Hawthorne effect works. When we are being observed we change our behaviors … just in this case, you'll be the one doing the observing. Plus writing down everything you eat will keep you from any "mindless" eating and will keep you from underestimating--because we all underestimate--what you actually consume. So write everything down. Then total up your calories at the end of the day. Ideally, you'll eat 400 to 500 fewer calories than you did before you started, and at the end of the month that will be worth 4 pounds or so. And that's it. Simple. Effective. Worked for me.
