Go on a juice fast. Pick one that's known to work such as the
lemonade diet or the hollywood diet, and follow the instructions
to the letter. You can't always just pick your favorite fruit or
vegetable, mix it up with some ice in the blender, then drink only
that every day. In many cases this might work, but in most it won't.
Often the fruits we love most are the highest in sugar content,
and if you're drinking that fruit as a juice you're probably drinking
almost pure sugar. And that won't help you lose weight. Following
a fast that's known to work is your best bet for weight loss success.
If a juice fast sounds too drastic or difficult for you, try dropping your
calorie intake dramatically instead. If, for instance, you know you need 1500
calories a day to maintain your current weight, you could try limiting yourself
to just 1000 or 1200 calories instead. This is also difficult to do, and you have
to be very careful about what you choose to eat (avoid junk foods, of course).
Doing this is not as drastic as a juice fast, but it's still a huge burden on
your body. Be sure to take a good multivitamin or, even better, a nutritious
super green food during this time. Once again, use your calories wisely. Eat
good healthy foods.
Hike cross-country. Or do something similar and equivalent in your local neighborhood.
Seriously, if you spent all day long walking, jogging, or doing other active exercising,
there's a very strong chance you'll lose the weight you want quickly. Now this
is not an overly reasonable or feasible option for most of us. If you have to
work 8 hours a day, you can't be out somewhere exercising your tail off. And if
you're not in great shape to begin with, you probably won't be able to last even
one hour doing intensive exercises.
Go on a low carb diet. Unlike the first two options above, this might be the
easiest and safest way for most of us to lose ten pounds in just ten days. Choose
a diet plan that really restricts your carb intake such as the infamous Atkins
diet, and stick with it. Most people lose 5-12 pounds just in the first 5-7 days
of being on this diet. That weight loss is usually water weight more so than fat,
but it's weight none the less.
