How to Lose 10 Pounds in 3 Weeks.

The most important rule for losing weight is  not to starve yourself. This temporal and exhausting form of weight loss can do quite a significant damage to your system. Instead, opt for a good weight loss program which involves a healthy diet and regular exercise regimen for a healthy and natural way to lose weight fast.


For losing weight in three weeks eat, eat and eat some more. No, it is not a joke. One of the best ways to lose weight fast is by eating the right foods. It is what kick starts the metabolism, which is so essential for losing weight. If your body senses you have not eaten anything for hours at the end, it will shut down. This is a measure that the body takes to protect you from the “famine” caused due to crash diets. Therefore, to keep your metabolism up, you must eat regularly, be it three main meals and two small snacks, or six small meals throughout the day. These regularly meals will keep your body happy, your metabolism alive, which in turn, keeps the calorie burning.

Say “no” to Junk Food: Keep away from the junk food like cookies, candies, soda and chips; and instead opt for a high fiber diet and devoid of those excess carbohydrates. You can cut down on the carbohydrates by removing rice, pastas and breads from your diet. Avoid oily and deep fried foods and say no to red meat.

Foods to Eat: Salads and green vegetables are the best option for those wanting to lose weight the natural way. Instead of red meat you can have eggs, chicken or a high protein fish.

Water: Drink lots of water a day, at least six to eight glasses. Cut down on soda drinks, the highly sugared juices ,tea and coffee. Drinking water will help flush out the toxins that build up in your system especially; your colon,liver and kidneys.

The Physical Strategy

Three weeks of aerobic and strength building exercises help to loose weight faster than any detox or fad diet. Including a regular exercise regime in your schedule can guarantee you the best results.

Cardiovascular exercises: Engaging in highly intensity cardiovascular exercises like running, swimming, brisk walking, cycling, squash, aerobic exercises are best ways to loose weight really fast. Include 4 to 5 workouts per week and include at least three sessions of cardiovascular exercises.

Strength Training:  I am not really asking you to  pull a Schwarzenegger, however, strength training exercises done 2 to 3 times a week, at home, with dumbbells or in a local gym can help shed the extra kilos. As your muscle mass increases, the metabolism gets a boost and you start burning calorie rapidly.

Remember, that with a bit of determination and will power you can achieve the target quite easily. Mentally prepare yourself to not get distracted by unwanted temptations, such as binging on fast food and remain consistent with your weight loss agenda.
