Skip the salty aisle

“I reached my goal weight after I stopped routinely buying snacks at the grocery store. If I wanted a bag of chips or a candy bar, I had to walk to the store to get it. That inconvenience usually made me ignore my cravings.” —Heather Del Baso, Worcester, MA

Swap your go-to order

“I used to eat out at restaurants up to nine times a week! By cutting back to just once a week and ordering a grilled chicken salad instead of a large bowl of pasta, I’ve lost 20 pounds in one month.” —Kerri Butler, Joplin, MO

Tweak your lifestyle

It’s a familiar story: You pledge to honor a daily elliptical routine and count every last calorie. But soon, you’re eating cupcakes at the office and grabbing happy hour mojitos, thinking, Oops, diet over.

There is a better way: Swap the all-or-nothing approach for one or two healthy switch-ups in your daily routine. “Doing this can lead to more weight loss than you ever imagined,” says Marissa Lippert, RD, author of The Cheater’s Diet.

Do You want to lose 10 pounds in a week? Try this simple and effective diet!

There is one thing everyone wants from a diet. To lose pounds, but not starve themselves out.

Well, what if I tell you there is a way to do just that?

Now, I’ve tried my fair share of diets, and some work, some do not work.

It is worth noting that some diets are just not cut for everyone, as we are all different people, different metabolism, blood type and so on.

However, I can certainly say that this diet is one that can help you lose 10 pounds, in just one week. And the best part is, you do not need to starve yourself to get the results you want.

Let’s start with the breakfast, which is the most important meal of the day.

Before you even start thinking about breakfast, I recommend squeezing one fresh lemon into a glass of cold water. Drink it on an empty stomach to purify and detox your body from toxins and also kickstart your metabolism.

Now, half an hour after you’ve drunk the glass of water, it is time to think about breakfast.

What you want are fruits. Now everyone who tells you can eat fruits through the whole day is not being honest with you.

The truth is, the best time to eat fruits is in the morning when the sugars from fruits are distributed nicely through our body.

You can take two oranges, two apples, a large grapefruit, two pears, or anything similar. Add a handful of hazelnuts, almonds or nuts to your breakfast.

This way, you are getting sugars to give you energy for the day, but also proteins and healthy nutrients that will satisfy your need for hunger.

For your lunch, you can get a slice of meat, be it cooked veal or cooked chicken.

The trick is to avoid bread during your lunch and get two cups of sour milk or yogurt with your lunch.

Limit your side dish, and avoid creamy salads during lunch. You can get few veggies as a side dish for your slice of meat.

Few hours after your lunch, it is time for a snack. But instead of going all chips and chocolate for your snack, make a fresh season salad, add just a pinch of salt and some olive oil and you are set.

Dinner is your last meal. The important notice here is that you want to consume your dinner before 6 pm.

Your dinner menu is two hard boiled eggs, green salad or cucumber salad with olive oil.

Now, the hard part is how to survive after 6 pm until you go to bed. This is where your determination comes in place.

However, since your menu before 6 pm consists of proteins and healthy nutrients, you should be fine.

Prepare green tea, one liter of water with 4 bags of green tea, and drink it before bedtime. Now, you do not want to drink the whole liter before bedtime. Instead, dose your tea between 6 pm and your bedtime.

How long will you stick to the diet is completely your choice.

However, I must note that it is recommended to practice the diet for 10 days the most.

One week is ideal, and you should lose approximately 10 pounds during that timeframe.
