Not all weight loss results are equal. Though you may shed some pounds, there are many different ways in which these pounds may be dropped. You may lose 10 pounds in 2, 3 weeks but it is the nature of your weight loss that counts. If you dropped 5 pounds of water weights, 3 pounds of muscle mass, and 2 pounds of fat, it may not be too long until you gain all that weight back.
However, if you dropped 10 pounds of pure fat, then you will look much better, feel much better, and will find it much easier to maintain this new weight for many years to come. If you want to lose more fat than anything else, you need to pick the right weight loss method and it's probably not the easiest one there is.
For instance, one of the best ways to drop 10 lbs fast is to use a detox diet. Purifying your body from within does have its merits and it's certainly a way to achieve a lightning fast weight loss, but most of it will be water weight. You will need to work hard to keep that weight from coming back.
Starving yourself is also a way to shed some weight fast, but because you're not eating enough, you're most likely losing a lot of muscle mass. This slows down your metabolism and makes it ever harder for you to keep on losing weight or maintaining the weight that you've lost. What's the real way to lose 10 pounds of fat in 2, 3 weeks?
The answer is massive workouts. I'm talking about intensive cardio and weight training. There is no other way to do it. Working out burns a lot of calories which is one thing, but it also builds muscle mass. If you do this right, you can lose a lot of weight and nearly all of it will be fat, not water or muscle.
What you especially need to focus on are your strength workouts. You need to build muscle mass or at least maintain as much as you can of it during your weight loss process. I recommend the following things (check with your doctor or phyical trainer to make sure you're up for them):
1. Do 3 or 4 strength training sessions a week.
2. In each session work your entire body, from head to toe.
3. Focus primarily on big muscle groups like back, chest, and legs.
4. Do a lot of supersets, a combination of exercises for different body parts to make sure you're getting an intensive workout.
5. Do circuit training: doing small bursts of cardio in between strength sets. This will really push you hard.
6. Do a lot of free weight training and body weight workouts, not strength machines. Machines tend to be less effective.
7. Each day, do 30 minutes of walking regardless of the other kind of cardio you do.
Naturally, you will also have to feed yourself the right way to lose 10 lbs of fat and not muscle. Make sure your diet is filled with high protein foods, low on grains and starchs, rich in fruit and vegetables, and consume 10 glasses of water each day at the very least. Refrain from alcohol, cakes, fast food, and fried food, for the next 2, 3 weeks.
Also, each small meals rather than big ones and don't go more than 3 hours without eating anything (except your sleeping time, of course). I also recommend following a specific workout plan to make sure you're doing everything right. If you follow these tips, I believe you have chance of succeeding. Nothing is guaranteed as it is mostly up to you. However, you can get fantastic results.
