Lose 10 Lbs in 2 Weeks -- 5 Fast Fat Loss Tips

Looking for more of the best ways to lose 10 lbs in just 2 weeks? The tips below can help you boost your metabolism, burn fat faster, be less hungry, and lose those 10 pounds in the next 10 to 14 days...


Cutting carbs simply works. In fact it may be the single best diet tip for losing pounds quickly. Scientific research proves it, including one recent study that found men who got only 8% of their daily calories from carbs were able to lose 7 pounds of pure body fat while also gaining 2 pounds of lean muscle tissue in just six weeks! No matter what, cut out all refined sugars and flour. It's all about "good" carbs when you're trying to drop weight as fast as possible.


High-fiber "bulky" foods should make up a good percentage of your diet. Fiber-rich foods make you feel fuller and reduce hunger/food cravings. Plus they have added health benefits. The best options are vegetables and beans.


Protein is the ultimate "fat burning food" because it requires a lot of energy (calories and, hopefully, stored body fat) just to digest and process (equal to about a quarter of the calories in the protein food itself). Plus protein provides the building-blocks for new metabolism-boosting lean muscle tissue. Besides meats, eggs, fish, etc. you should also include whey protein in your diet because of its many beneficial fat loss and muscle-sparing effects.


Always do your cardio training after you've finished your strength training. You'll be stronger and fresher for your lifts and your cardio will have a much greater benefit because you'll already be "pre-fatigued" from the weight work.


The body adapts quickly to any workout routine, so for fastest results you need to be mixing up your exercise as much as possible. There are billions of combinations of effective strength training exercises and cardio/aerobic exercise options. Don't make the mistake of doing the same workout every week. Be creative and keep things interesting to help avoid burnout and lose those pounds even faster!
