The Not-So Secret to Lose 10 Pounds

The Not-So Secret to Lose 10 Pounds 1
Who doesn’t want to become sexy? Who wouldn’t want to reap the benefits of being able to flaunt a jaw-dropping figure? You’ll be able to wear two-piece swimsuits, or that nice dress that is so elegant-looking. You won’t have any problem moving around because your weight will not hamper you. Most of all, you’ll feel beautiful, and of course, you’ll feel confident. The only problem with losing weight is it will take really, really long before you see any results. So women keep asking, “What is the quickest way to lose 10 pounds?”

The truth is, the quickest way to lose 10 pounds is to make your lifestyle a 24-hour habit. It won’t do you any good if half the day you’re trying to be fit, and the other half, you’re being complacent.

Now that it’s cleared, let’s look at these simple but very effective methods in losing weight:

Concentrate on your lower body

Whatever exercises you do, give a little more emphasis on your lower body. This is because it houses the three largest muscles (quads, hamstrings, and gluteus) that when worked out, produce tiny tears. These tears cause “after burn” effects that make losing weight happen faster.

Don’t spend too many hours in the gym

the quickest way to lose 10 pounds does not involve you being a gym-buddy; in fact, you shouldn’t think about it. Spending a lot of time (for hours) working out can only exhaust you, and when you’re exhausted, you crave food.

The best thing to do is incorporate short bursts of workouts. SBT only needs you to dedicate 15 minutes of daily exercise. Just make sure that the routines you have are intense– enough to have you catching your breath.

Eat as usual, just not too much

Remember what they say when a person diets; she only tends to get fatter. So, it is safe to say that dieting is not included in the list of quickest ways to lose 10 pounds.

What you’ll need to do instead is eat the foods that you regularly eat, but don’t eat too much. If you’re a rice person, what’s the point of foregoing it? If you want to be healthier, just switch to brown rice.

And when you are placing veggies and fruits on your plate, tell yourself that it’s not about losing weight; it’s about being healthy.

If you’ve got it, flaunt it!

The most common mistake a woman makes when losing weight is she tends to miss out on life. She always tells herself that she’ll just have fun when she loses weight.

If you keep waiting and waiting, it’ll really feel like a long time before you see results. Instead of holding out on the fun, why not start now? Believe me; it’s one of the “quickest” ways to lose 10 pounds.

And there you have it. The last secret to losing weight is to hone your skills in cooking. When you cook your own meals, you get picky with the ingredients, so you’re sure that they are healthy.

Another advantage of cooking is you’ll love to share it; sharing it means cutting your food consumption to just the healthy degree. More than that, cooking will make you feel good: another good talent you didn’t know you have. 

So, these are all the quickest ways to lose 10 pounds. As you can see, they are not secrets at all; we just tend to neglect remembering them.
