Lose 10 Lbs in 3 Days?

Can you really lose 10 pounds in 3 days? Here's the truth: it's very unlikely. You may be able to lose around 5 pounds in three days but, for most people, 10 lbs is really pushing it. Still, many people are going to give it a go, despite the low odds of success. If you fall into this category, please keep these tips in mind...

1. Most of the weight will be "water weight"... especially if you cut down on your carbohydrate intake.

2. You should not try to starve yourself by cutting calorie intake too much, mainly because you'll slow your metabolism and possible cause serious damage to your body.

3. No matter what anyone tells you, you're not going to lose 10 pounds just by taking a pill, using a "body wrap," or purchasing some kind of gimmicky exercise/fat loss gadget. You're also probably not going to lose 10 pounds by following one of those "3 day" diets that have become so popular.

If you want to lose weight quickly and in a healthy way, you'll need to eat a very strict diet based around lean protein and veggies, while also doing some form of effective exercise most days of the week. Here's a simple diet to lose 10 pounds fast (though not necessarily in only 3 days!):

Eat no processed foods whatsoever. Basically, if it was made by man, don't eat it. This includes anything made with flour (even the "whole grain" variety), refined sugars, or processed fats.

Avoid starchy carbs, including grain foods, potatoes, rice, etc.

Eat mainly lean proteins, fish (especially salmon and sardines), raw or lightly cooked vegetables (especially the green leafy kinds), nuts, and seeds.

Eat 2 or 3 pieces of fresh, raw fruit every day, but not bananas (due to their high glycemic index count).

Eat a couple servings of healthy fat each day, including virgin olive oil, coconut oil, natural nut and seed butters, avocado, fatty fish, etc.

Note: You should also try to do some form of high-intensity exercise every morning, especially if your goal is to lose 10 pounds in 3 days!

How to Get Really Fit, Really Fast

Want to lose weight, reduce body fat and get really fit... really fast? Then do these things:

Eat lots of lean protein, healthy fish, raw or lightly cooked vegetables, nuts, and seeds.

Eat some raw fruit and healthy fat every day.

Rotate/cycle your intake of starchy carbs.

Eat no refined sugars, flours, or fats.

Do both strength training and cardio exercise on a regular basis.

Focus on "big" exercises that work multiple muscle groups: pushups, pullups, dips, squats, lunges, situps, etc.

Do high-intensity interval training (HIIT) 2-4 times per week.

Find an enjoyable sport that you makes you sweat, and play it at least once a week.

Constantly change up your workouts to keep your body from adapting.

Keep workouts short, intense, and effective.

Once you develop a foundation of conditioning, begin doing harder, but more effective exercises: jumping rope, rope climbing, rowing, kettlebell training, etc.

Set specific goals and build momentum by getting small "victories" quickly!

As you can see, it takes quite a bit of effort to get fit fast. But the benefits are definitely worth it. The key is to get super focused, stay motivated, plan ahead, and do whatever it takes to "stick with it" until you've reached your fitness and weight loss goals!

Diet Tips to Lose Fat Fast and Feel Better at the Same Time

Want to lose fat fast, boost your energy a ton, and feel better... all at the same time? Follow these simple diet tips:

1. Stop eating toxic foods. Anything made with refined sugar, processed flours, trans fats, or artificial preservatives is toxic to your body and more than likely very fattening as well. The same goes for alcohol. If you want to lose fat and feel A LOT better too, cut these foods from your diet.

2. Watch the grains and dairy. Many health experts believe that humans aren't meant to eat large amounts of grains and dairy products, mainly because we've only been consuming them for a few thousand years. Since it took us millions of years to develop the digestive system we have, it makes sense. If you're goal is fast, healthy weight loss you may want to cut grains and dairy from your diet, at least for a few weeks.

3. Eat more of the good foods. Humans thrive on fresh, natural, whole foods: lean meats, fish and seafood, nuts, seeds, vegetables, raw fruits, beans, legumes, etc. Eat these all the time -- or at least most of the time -- and you'll definitely lose weight in a quick but healthy manner while also greatly improving the way you feel.

The same goes for water. We're meant to consume lots of pure water so try to get at least a gallon a day. You'll have way more energy and a stronger metabolism!

4. Eat superfoods and super supplements. Certain foods and supplements are extremely healthy and you may want to include them in your diet. Some good "superfoods" are green tea, fresh berries, avocado, leafy green vegetables, and flax seeds. The best supplements for losing weight quickly and feeling good as well are: whey protein, multivitamins, probiotics, vitamin C (especially "natural" forms), and omega 3 fatty acid supplements.

How to Lose Weight Fast for Free

Want to lose weight for free? Want to burn fat fast without spending any money? The truth is you don't need to buy expensive pieces of exercise equipment, big home gyms, gimmicky fitness gadgets, specially-formulated "diet" foods, or high-priced "fat burning" diet pills/appetite suppressants/etc. You don't even need to purchase a membership to a fancy gym.

Really, if you're on a budget, you should only spend your dollars on high-quality food. And even that can be found cheap, if you know what to look for. Here are 3 tips to help you lose weight fast and for free...

1. Use your bodyweight.

Your own bodyweight provides you with all the resistance you need to burn fat, build muscle, and create a fit body fast. Some of the world's best exercises are bodyweight exercises. Pushups, pullups, inverted rows, squats, lunges, hanging leg raises, crunches, and burpees are just a few examples of the thousands of effective bodyweight movements that not only burn fat and build muscle, but also develop the functional strength that will help you in everyday life.

2. Sprint and jump.

Sprinting and jumping rope are two of the most-effective forms of fat-burning cardio around. In fact, one of the most effective forms of high intensity interval training (HIIT) is short wind sprints with 30-60 second active rest periods. Jumping rope burns more calories than almost all other forms of aerobic exercise while also developing speed, agility, balance, and coordination. If you don't already have a jump rope, you can buy a quality "speed" rope for around $5 at almost any sporting goods store.

3. Eat quality calories.

If you want to know which is the best diet for losing weight fast, here it is: eat lots of lean protein and vegetables, some healthy fats, and small amounts of fruit and starchy carbs. Forget about the latest fad diet... this is what really works. The best part is that many quality "weight loss" foods can also be bought cheaply. Eggs, nuts, seeds, apples, and oatmeal are just a few examples of high-quality, nutrient-dense, healthy foods that are cheap but delicious.

So now you know how to lose weight fast and for free... or at least for a very small amount of money. The next time someone tells you that you need to spend a bunch of money on some weight loss program or exercise machine, tell them the truth: they're full of it!
