Could you please help me lose 10 pounds in 3 days? I’m getting married this week [...] I need to lose weight quickly. I’m desperate [...] please tell me how to lose 10 pounds in 3 days. Thanks, Sherri.- – via Ask Questions.
I would love to help you, and I wish I could tell you how to lose 10 pounds in 3 days – unfortunately, losing that much weight in such a short time is not realistic; nor it is healthy as it could lead to a bouquet of adverse health effects.
To put things into perspective, on average, people can expect to lose 1-2 pounds a week- to lose 10 pounds in 3 days you would need to drop 3.3 pounds a day. However, getting married is a very special occasion.
So I will give you some tips for a quick weight loss. Please keep in mind, I cannot tell you if you will lose 10 pounds in 3 days. I do not even know if you will lose any weight at all in 3 days.
For the next 3 days, do not eat any sugar. Eliminate all traditional sources of carbohydrates. Do no eat any pasta, bread of any kind, cookies, cakes, ice cream, soda, donuts, bagels, morning cereal, oatmeal, rice, French fries, pizza, candies, etc.
Get all your carbohydrates exclusively from vegetables. For example, broccoli, green leafy vegetables, bell peppers, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, asparagus, avocado, cauliflower and others are all good choices. Do not forget to eat breakfast.
If you eat big meals, 2-3 times a day, divide the amount of food you usually eat into 4 to 5 meals. In other words, eat smaller meals more often. Drink plenty of water and eat protein with every meal – chicken, lean cuts of beef, shrimp, lean pork, lamb, egg whites, as well as eggs and any fish.
You also need to exercise. Since you are short on time, the easiest way to get some cardio done is walking, rollerblading, bicycling, swimming, or any activity that will get you moving more than you usually do.
If you are interested in a permanent weight loss, your best bet is a balanced diet and exercise. Finding a diet and an exercise program with which you feel comfortable, will aid in your adherence to meeting your weight-loss goal.
These plans are not just some fad diets. They are, however, great programs. Why? Because they are easy to understand, anyone can follow them, and they teach excellent eating and exercise habits, which you will be able to use at your own pace.
You should consult with your doctor before making any drastic changes to your diet or starting an exercise program.
