How To Realistically Lose 10 Pounds In 10 Days
4. Working Out
This is the most effective and recommended way to cut down calories. Working out on a daily basis is not only going to help you shed off those 10 pounds, but it also gonna increase your stamina, balance, and strength.
And instead of losing muscle mass you can even increase it if a high protein diet is followed (as we discussed previously).
So how much should you workout every day to realistically lose 10 pounds in 10 days? If you’d continue eating unhealthy, you’d have to:
- Lift weights for 12 hours daily.
- Jog 10 hours straight every day.
- Run 7 hours straight every day for 10 days.
- Squat continuously for 4 hours a day.
As you can see, none of these options are realistically doable. That’s why working out alone can’t help you lose 10 pounds in such a small amount of time.
But if you create a calorie deficit by eating less and healthy, then adding a workout to your plan will definitely speed up the weight loss process.
So I’ve already showed you how you can cut up to half pound of fat a day just by eating right. Now it’s time to show you how to cut a quarter pound of fat by exercise:
- Run one hour per day.
- Swim at least an hour each day.
- Walk 2 hours daily.
- Do a 700-calorie workout.
- If you’re not a beginner to working out, do this 1000-calorie workout every day.
- Or follow the instructions on the below video:
There are lots of ways to burn some calories, just pick your favourite exercise/sport and do it continuously for an hour.
Remember, daily exercise isn’t just a way to burn calories, but rather a form of loving your body and taking care of it.
5. Sleeping Enough
From person to person, sleeping time and duration differs pretty much. We all have different body types and working schedules, so what works for me might not work for you or vice versa.
But there’s one thing valid to all of us: an 8-hour sleeping period is enough for our body to recharge. And the best part is that during this recharging period our bodies continue to burn calories.
What I’m trying to say is that you burn calories while you sleep. And when I say calories, I mean a significant number: about 500 calories per 8 hours of sleep. Awesome, right?!
Keep in mind that sleeping enough means having a RESTFUL 8-hour sleep.
