10 Ways to Lose 10 Pounds the Fast, Easy, and Healthy Way

Looking to lose 10 pounds in a fast and easy way? Why not go for "healthy" as well? The average person can lose several pounds -- mostly body fat -- within just a few weeks or even days... and they can do it in a relatively easy, safe, and healthy way. You really just need to know what you're doing and let your body use its natural fat-burning power to shed those ugly and unnecessary pounds as fast as possible.

Use the 10 healthy weight loss tips below on a consistent basis and you could easily lose ten lbs fast...

1. Stay focused. Focus your thoughts, energy, and actions on your goal of losing 10 pounds and you'll do it much faster.

2. Build momentum. Build unstoppable fat loss momentum by setting "mini goals" for each day and doing your best to complete them all.

3. Boost energy. Boost your energy naturally and you'll have an easier time losing weight quickly. Some simple energy boosting tips: get plenty of sleep, drink lots of water, eat some virgin coconut oil every day, drink green tea, take a good multivitamin.

4. Do juice and lemon water fasts. Every week or two do a simple raw juice fast or lemon water fast. This will cleanse your body, boost your metabolism, and help you lose a few pounds easily.

5. Eat a paleo-style diet. Eat only natural foods, mainly lean meats, eggs, fish, vegetables, nuts and seeds. Eat small amounts of fresh fruit and starchy carbs. Avoid processed grains and other processed carbs, at least until you've lost the first 5 pounds.

6. Avoid white carbs. White carbohydrates -- mainly refined sugars and flours -- spike your blood sugar and insulin levels and make you fat. You can "get out of your own way" and lose weight much more easily by cutting them from your diet.

7. Fill up before meals. Eat some high-fiber, low-calorie foods -- such as raw veggies, fresh fruit, or some vegetable soup -- before meals and you'll eat less, making it easier to cut calories.

8. Do full-body strength training. One of the easiest, and healthiest ways to lose 10 pounds fast is to do full-body strength training "circuit" workouts at least 3-4 times a week. This not only burns fat and calories, it will cause your body to produce powerful steroid-like hormones that boost the metabolism 24-hours a day. Also, toned muscle looks great!

9. Do interval-based cardio. At least twice a week get outside and do some high-intensity interval training (HIIT), a proven fat burner.

10. Take healthy supplements. Whey protein powder, omega 3 fats (such as fish oil or krill oil), and a quality multivitamin are all good investments for safe and healthy weight loss.

There you are: 10 of the best tips for losing 10 pounds fast and in a safe, healthy way. Give them a try and you could lose your belly fat, tone your muscles, boost your energy, and look and feel great in a matter of weeks!
