5 Tricks That Help You Lose 10 Pounds

By Rasalie R Smith

There is no real magical trick to losinfg 10 pounds. It's all just hard work and dedication. But let's just label them tricks just for the heck of it. Of course, by hard work, I don't mean working your butts off in the office while you're sitting down, it will only burn energy not fats. Moving on, there are quite a number of tricks to help you lose 10 pounds, but I'm just going to discuss 5 of them. That should be enough to motivate you without making you feel overwhelmed.

Tip number 1, ditch the old attitude. If you're used to just accepting the stones that people throw at you because of your fat-filled body, take a stand and show them you can change that. And maybe one day they'd drool over you when they see your Ryan Reynolds-inspired abs or Adriana Lima-inspired fit figure. For one to lose 10 pounds, one must really have the right attitude and perspective. To get there however, you have to change the way you see food. You should be able to say no to cake, soda and chips to name a few. What I'm trying to say is you have to avoid unhealthy food and stick to the healthy ones. And when you eat healthy - like vegetables, fruits - you have to convince yourself that you like it. Otherwise, you'd be back to eating junk in no time. In any case, here are some proven and effective tips to lose 10 pounds.

Tip number 2, be realistic. If you noticed I inserted the word "inspired" whilst citing an example back in tip 1, it is to point out that we all have different body types. Learn to love yourself - well, including your body type. Any kind of body type would look hot when it is fit. Don't believe all the crap on T.V. or the internet about the ideal body. You have a certain ideal body, now go and work for it.

Tip number 3, drink lots of water. Water is essential for excreting waste and distributing nutrients to your cells. Start your morning by drinking a glass of water before anything else. If you've heard, the 8 glasses of water a day thing is debunked. Experts now say that men need 3.7 liters a day while women need 2.7. Wondering how you can drink that much water in a day? Do a very convenient schedule by using a certain measured glass and divide the number glasses you have to drink by the 3 meals plus the one in the morning.

Tip number 4, eat. Eat?! Yes, eat! If you don't eat for a few days, chances of me finding you in bed are so high, I'd be rich from it. Seriously, you have to eat - healthy food that is. By this time, you should know which ones are good for you and which ones are not. A reminder though, does not skip breakfast. It helps with your metabolism and keeps you going through the day.

Tip number 5, exercise. I don't want you to go all Taylor Lautner on me and go through that "to be Jacob Black" regimen. You don't even have to go to the gym. You can stay at home or at work while making the things you do a little more challenging. Here are a few tips:

(1) if you're the boss, and you want something to be recopied, go to the machine and do it yourself.

(2) Park your car a little farther in the parking lot and walk to extra meters the door to your office.

(3) Take the stairs. But that's only if your office is only a few floors up.

That should help you lose 10 pounds. If that doesn't work - who am I kidding? It will work. So now, go and change your life, uture hottie.

Product Description

# 1 international bestselling diet book coming to North America

Devised by Dr. Pierre Dukan, a French medical doctor who has spent his career helping people to lose weight, the Dukan Diet rejects counting calories and promises permanent weight loss while allowing adherents to eat as much as they like.

Originally published in 2000, the Dukan Diet swept across France, championed by people who successfully lost weight following its unique four phase regime. The Dukan Diet has helped millions in France, where it has been number one for more than ten years and adopted in twenty countries, including the United Kingdom, Poland, Korea and Brazil. All together, The Dukan Diet has sold more than 3 million copies worldwide.

The Diet: 4 Easy Steps to Permanent Weight Loss

Phase one: Attack
Using Dr. Dukan's True Weight calculator, dieters determine a reasonable and healthy weight loss goal. Then they begin the Dukan Attack phase a two-to-seven-day period during which only unlimited lean protein and a daily Oat bran galette (or pancake) are consumed and dramatic weight loss is achieved.

Phase Two: Cruise
Dieters alternate days of unlimited lean protein with days of protein combined with healthful vegetables until they reach their True Weight.

Phase Three: Consolidation
Dieters stay on this phase for 5 days for every pound lost. At this point the diet allows unlimited protein and vegetables, and other foods (such as cheese and bread) are reintroduced. Dieters are also allowed two weekly celebration meals to stave off boredom.

Phase Four: Stabilization
This is the maintenance portion of the plan, in which followers are allowed to eat whatever they like without regaining weight – provided that they follow 3 unbreakable rules including eating only unlimited lean protein one set day per week.

For each phase, The Dukan Diet offers clear simple guidelines for long term success. The Dukan Diet is the perfect diet for people who want fast weight loss, that can be maintained without counting calories or weighing portions.

By Glenda Evans "Bibliofile" (Citizen of the World)
I am 5'9" tall. When I started the diet I forgot to weigh myself, so I am not sure exactly how much I weighed or how much I have lost, but I can tell you this. I went from a size 14 clothes to a size 8. I started the diet on April 15, 2010 after reading an excerpt in the London Daily Mail. I even pre-ordered my book from Absolutely everyone has notice the difference. One thing that I do because I work five days a week is I cook my food all on one day and place in containers in the refrigerator. This way I always have something to eat. One of the quickiest ways to fall off a diet is when you have none of your available food ready, this is one way to avoid this issue. I have had no issues with the diet and it really works. I recommend this diet to anyone. So far two friends and three relatives have also started the diet with great success. I wanted to come back and add that today is 2/2/2011 and I am still a size 8 still working the diet. I did succumb to some parties during the holidays and gain 6 lbs, but went back to the beginning of the diet and some all protein days and I am back. I wish I could post pictures for all to see.

Review: Now Eat This! Diet: Lose Up to 10 Pounds in Just 2 Weeks Eating 6 Meals a Day!

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A follow-up to the author's popular Now Eat This! cookbook, this volume offers an uncomplicated plan for cutting calories and losing weight, in two sections. The first explains how the diet works and how it's possible to eat tasty foods made from healthier ingredients, offers basic advice about exercise, and delineates a "14 Day Fast Track Plan" for kick-starting weight loss by eating 1,400 calories per day (1,200 for women). The second section delivers 75 recipes designed to fit into that low-cal meal plan. They're color-coded by calorie counts so it's easy to pick recipes to fit into a day's overall total. Breakfast choices include a sunrise sandwich with eggs-egg substitute, actually-and Canadian bacon on a whole-wheat English muffin for 279 calories. Bacon appears again in DiSpiritio's version of the BLT, a bacon, lettuce, and tomato roll with 245 calories, thanks to the use of fat-free mayo and a touch of crumbled bacon instead of several bacon strips per sandwich. Spicy-sweet linguine alla vodka gets its creaminess from 2% Greek yogurt and clocks in at 307 calories per serving. There are desserts, too, like red velvet chocolate squares in which beets lend moisture, and agave nectar instead of sugar serves as sweetener. The recipes are mostly super (more like assembling ingredients than cooking) and the prose is straightforward (if a little choppy and repetitive)-meaning just about anyone who wants to should be able to follow this plan and lighten up mealtimes.

Recipes and information galore for healthy eating

By Julia Park

This review is from: Now Eat This! Diet: Lose Up to 10 Pounds in Just 2 Weeks Eating 6 Meals a Day! (Paperback)
Received my copy yesterday and dived right in to make the "No-Boil Mushroom Lasagna." Not only was it quick to make, I was surprised to see that a single serving was a yummy 388 calories versus who knows how scary the actual caloric number is. Was able to thumb through the actual text of the book and I must say that I'm looking forward to cooking these meals. I think it's important to note that you shouldn't get fooled by the word "diet" in the title - if anything, this book is all about teaching you how to eat/cook healthier for your well-being.

Awesome Healthy Dieting and Eating Cookbook!

By Sarah

I am so happy I purchased this book. I've been really looking for a plan to get healthy not just by going to the gym every day, but eating better and Now Eat This Diet offers 2 plans, lots of good health tips, and good recipes. I've only tried a few so far, but so far they have all been delicious and I dont feel as guilty eating some of my favorite foods. The book also works off a color-coded calorie counting system which is cool. I can really follow it and set my meals for the day. Thanksss Rocco!
