The Fastest Way to Lose 10 Pounds in a Month

This is definitely a "top 10" question we hear all the time: what's the fastest way to lose 10 pounds (or 15 pounds, or 20 pounds, etc.)? And the truth of the matter is that there probably is not a single "fastest" method for every single person in the world. There are, however, several rapid fat loss techniques that seem to work for most people most of the time. We may not all have the same genetics, body chemistry, living situation, etc. but there are a few "best of the best" ways to burn off body fat and lose a least 10 pounds within a month. (Actually, the majority of people could easily lose 20+ lbs in a month using the tips listed below!)

The Fastest Way to Lose 10-20 Pounds in 3 Simple Steps:

Step 1: Cut all refined sugars, grains, and "white" carbohydrates out of your diet.

This is the easiest and simplest way to cut down your calorie intake and get your blood sugar and insulin levels under control... all while stabilizing your energy levels (and making you feel great!). If you absolutely must eat grain foods then, at least, choose 100% whole grain options and keep them to one serving per day. Definitely avoid white breads, white pastas, white rice, and white potatoes for the time being.

Step 2: Eat a simple, clean diet based around lean protein, good fats, vegetables, beans, and fresh fruit.

Focus on eating mostly whole, natural, unprocessed foods. Try to eat a small, balanced, protein-based meal or snack about every 2-4 hours to avoid hunger/food cravings. Only eat enough at each sitting to feel slightly full. Avoid stuffing yourself. Go heavy on protein and fiber-rich veggies, beans, etc. Eat several servings per day of good fats in the form of nuts, seeds, oily fish, natural peanut butter, virgin olive oil, avocado, etc. Eat one or two servings of fresh, raw fruit every day as well.

Step 3: Do short, high-intensity workout often.

Try to do at least 20 minutes of higher-intensity exercise 4-6 days per week. Do both strength/muscle training and cardio training, in the same workout if possible. Keep the workouts short (under 30 minutes) and focus on quality/intensity over quantity/time.

There you have it: one of the best and fastest ways to burn fat and lose at least 10 pounds within the next month. Just cut out sugars and white "junk foods", eat a clean diet based around protein and good carbs, and do some fat-burning, high-intensity exercise several times per week. I guarantee your body will respond and you will burn calories, reduce fat, and lose 10+ pounds in 30 days... in one of the quickest (and safest) ways possible!
