How to lose weight in 10 days?
To lose weight in 10 days you may have to give up some of your favorite food and strictly follow this regimen.
Ginger on an empty stomach:
Ginger promotes digestion, stimulate metabolism, lowers cholesterol and blood sugar. It also helps relieve gastrointestinal (GI) irritation and prevent constipation. The first thing you need to do after waking up is to eat a small piece of raw ginger on an empty stomach.
Apple cider vinegar before every meal:
Drink 2 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar mixed with 250ml of water before every meal. It suppresses appetite and makes you eat less. Studies have found that apple cider vinegar increases fatty acid oxidation and prevents fat accumulation. It also decreases the gastric emptying rate resulting in increased satiety.
Raw cabbage juice in between meals:
Cabbage juice reduces fat storage, decrease bad cholesterol, and prevents constipation. It also boosts immunity and aids digestion. Use approximately half cabbage per serving. Try to consume 2 servings per day.
10 days diet plan to lose weight:
- Beans (all varieties)
- Green vegetables
- Lean meat
- Egg whites
These are the only food choices. This list may look small but, you can prepare hundreds of recipes with these ingredients. You will consume only home cooked food. Absolutely no dairy products, fruits, lentils (dal) or grains. You can use spices for flavors.
Green vegetables should be partially cooked. Try to combine 2 or more suggested food ingredients per meal. Eat 4 – 5 small size meals per day, this will force your body to work continuously. Your will work continuously to break down the larger food molecules for energy because of eating small portions more frequently.
Regular cardio on an empty stomach helps you lose weight faster. If you are worried about your body composition and muscle wastage because of doing cardio you can do circuit training or include more of complex exercises like man makers.
How this 10 days weight loss plan works:
By following this 10 days weight loss plan you will get into a calorie deficit (burn more calorie than you consume). The partially cooked green vegetables make you achieve satiety faster and makes you eat a lot lesser.
Dietary prebiotics and appetite suppressant:
Most of the food you consume are rich in fiber. The insoluble / non-digestible fiber found in food ingredients are prebiotics. Prebiotics increase PYY, a satiety hormone that decreases hunger and suppress ghrelin, the hunger hormone that increases appetite. It helps control appetite and lowers the rate of energy intake.
You can use any vinegar used for cooking as an appetite suppressant. Here we are using apple cider vinegar as it is the best choice. Consuming apple cider vinegar makes you feel full and makes you eat less.
Doing cardio or weight training on a calorie deficit amplifies the weight loss effect and the results will be more pronounced. By consuming more of lean meat, fish, eggs, beans, cabbage, and other food ingredients suggested you will get adequate amount of glutamine which may help you recover from muscle soreness induced by regular exercising.
Caution: Following this diet plan for longer duration may not be a healthy choice. Do not follow this diet plan if you have any health problems. The real trick is to stay alive as long as you can.
