The "Lose 10 Pounds Fast" Checklist

Here's an "action" checklist for anyone who want to lose 10 pounds in a fast and healthy way...

-- Review your goal statement each morning and each night (e.g. "Lose 10 pounds by June 1 by doing intense workouts and following a healthy diet plan.")

-- Spend a few minutes each morning visualizing success.

-- Drink at least 60 ounces of pure water per day, including a large glass first thing upon waking.

-- Do 10-20 minutes of brisk exercise first thing in the morning every day, before your first meal.

-- Eat a diet based around lean protein, good carbs, and healthy fats.

-- Avoid all refined sugars, processed carbohydrates, and bad fats. Also limit starchy carb intake.

-- Do a 20-30 minute circuit training resistance workout and/or a 10 minute HIIT cardio workout. (Note: Have at least one rest day per week where you do little-to-no exercise)

-- Take a whey protein shake, omega 3 fats, and a good multivitamin supplement.

-- Get at least 7-8 hours of quality sleep per night.

There you go: a checklist of "action items" to perform each day in order to lose 10 pounds fast and in a safe, healthy, and efficient way. Print it out and get to work!
