How to Lose 10 Lbs Quickly and Fast - 4 Tips to Help You Lose 10 Lbs Quickly and Fast

Follow these simple tips to get ideas on how to lose 10 lbs quickly and fast:

1. Set Several Short Term Weight Loss Goals Instead of One Long Term Goal

Lots of people set themselves an "impossible" goal for how much weight they want to lose in how short a time. You can lose 10 lbs quickly and fast, but setting a big goal with a short time frame can actually make it harder to reach the goal because you always seem to be trying hard and never getting there.

So what you need to do is to break down your goal (the "impossible" one) into smaller short term goals, so for example instead of losing 50 lbs in a month, you might go for 5 lbs a week until you have lost 50 lbs. This will give you a sense of achievement whenever you reach one of your smaller goals, and makes it easier for you to get to your "impossible" goal.

2. Change Processed Foods For Raw Foods

Get rid of processed white foods such as pasta, rice, and bread. Then replace them with delicious raw foods like fruit, vegetables, pulses and nuts.

Now your first thought may be "What am I going to eat?" Don't worry about it - just make a list of all the raw foods you can think of, and start coming up with ideas on how you can put them together to make a filling (and healthy) meal.

You can start by introducing foods such as fruit and nuts as your snacks instead of cakes, donuts, bread, or whatever you currently eat, and make sure to include a good sized portion of salad as a healthy side to your meals.

3. Drink Plenty of Water

Try adding some lemon juice to your water. It will help to detoxify your liver, and a cleaner liver will help you to shift some of that weight off of your body.

Drinking water is important for your overall health as well as for your weight. You should drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. To find out how much water you actually need to drink though, do this simple calculation. Divide your body weight by two, the result is how many ounces of water you should drink in a day, e.g. you weigh 200 lbs, so 200 divided by 2 is 100, that means you should drink 100 ounces of water in a day.

4. Change Inactivity and Junk Food Snacking for Activity

Do you have a habit of snacking on junk food when you don't have anything else to do? This is called eating out of boredom. If so, you need to get busy with some physical activity. That way you won't get bored and you won't snack on junk foods.

As an added bonus, when you are busy with something physical, like a sport, or jogging, or trampolining, or even mowing the lawn or chopping wood, you also burn off extra calories. It's a win-win situation (except for the guys who make money out of selling you junk food snacks).
