How to lose 10 pounds fast

Want to Lose 10 Pounds? 34 Health & Fitness Experts Share Their Best Secrets

Little by little the pounds seem to just creep on...

Maybe your busy schedule makes healthy eating and regular exercise a challenge?

Did you gain a little weight after having kids and now that weight won’t budge?

Or have you noticed your metabolism slow down as each year passes by? Doing what you used to do just isn’t working anymore?

Dave Smith

Over the past 15 years I have worked with hundreds of clients who have faced this seemingly uphill battle. Perhaps the most common question I hear goes something like this,

“Dave, I need to get in shape. What can I do to lose 10 pounds fast?”

First off, I just want to say that if you ever hear someone declare that they have "THE solution" for everyone's weight-loss problems, run away (quickly!) because there is no "one size fits all" solution.

The fact is, you are unique and your body will gain weight and lose pounds differently from anyone else.

But this isn't reason to become overwhelmed and throw in the towel. There IS a solution that will work for you, and that's why I've recruited 34 top health & wellness professionals to offer their best advice to help you get started and get the results you're looking for.

Food & Nutrition

"Start by eating clean, whole foods. That's what your body can recognize and how your body and metabolism will work best.

What's in an apple? An apple. What's in an avocado? An avocado.

Focus on one-ingredient foods to round out your meals and snacks. Slowly start to move away from processed, inflammatory foods and add in more whole foods that are anti-inflammatory such as fruits, veggies, walnuts and ground flaxseeds."

Glenn Johnson

Glenn Johnson

Glenn is a college and university instructor in health, fitness and nutrition. He has received personal training certifications from ISSA and ACE.

"My one piece of advice I give to people who are looking to lose “weight” (or rather body fat) is to abstain from eating starches and added sugars. Period.

This will include all baked goods, grains, potatoes (except sweet potatoes), beer, cereal etc. Abstaining from baked goods will help keep the sugar out of their diet, as this is a common type of food to add sugar to (cookies, muffins, cereal, bread). Avoiding sweets is obvious, but they should also abstain from drinking fruit juices since they are excessively high in sugar, much more than would be found in the whole fruit.

I would also strongly encourage them to limit alcohol to one or two drinks per week, at most.

Carbohydrates, sugar, and alcohol all contribute to fat storage and blunt the ability of the body to break down and burn fat."

Carla Birnberg

Gregory Gomez

Gregory specializes in helping people make lifestyle changes that stick. He is an educator, a writer, and a health blogger.

"When it comes to daily nutrition, one of the most crucial aspects that will determine if a person gains, maintains or loses weight is portion size.

To get a good handle on this often overlooked issue, use smaller plates, serve yourself one appropriate portion of food, take your time while eating, and be sure to drink 2-3 glasses of water throughout the meal.

If you stick with these tips, you'll find yourself getting full on much less food than you're used to eating which essentially means you'll be taking in less calories."

"You can't burn off a bad diet in the gym. Research consistently shows that although you can lose some weight through exercise, much bigger weight-loss results come from nutrition changes.

The trick with weight loss from a nutrition perspective is acknowledging there is not one way to eat well. Understanding your "food personality" is critical for success.

For some, this means a higher protein, moderate carbohydrate diet, for others this means the opposite (a vegetarian diet, high in carbohydrate and low in protein).

Anyone can lose weight, but can you sustain it?

Rather than beginning a weight loss diet with making a list of foods you can never eat again, build a plan backwards. You can eat anything, just not everything. Begin with building in your favourite non-negotiable sweet or savoury foods chosen for fun and enjoyment and then wrap healthy foods around them.

As the "chocoholic nutritionist", I live by the approach that eating fully = healthfully + soulfully. This means I am happy to eat my veggies and balanced meals BUT I will always find room for chocolate and sipping wine with my hubby."

Andrea Holwegner

Andrea Holwegner

Andrea is the founder of Health Stand Nutrition Consulting. Since 2000, she has counseled hundreds of individuals, including Olympic athletes, CEOs and families, on the benefits of healthy eating.

"Try removing another cupped handful of carbohydrates and/or a thumb-sized portion of fats from your daily intake.

Increase the consistency with which your are following your plan. For example, follow it 90% of the time instead of 80%."

Brian St Pierre

Brian St. Pierre

Brian is a ​certified sports nutritionist and a certified strength and conditioning specialist. He is also one of the coaches at Precision Nutrition.

"The first thing you should do when trying to lose 10 pounds is find out what you're eating now. Any kind of food tracking that works realistically for you does the trick - a paper notebook, an app on your phone, a spreadsheet, the back of an envelope - it doesn't matter what you use as long as you use it.

Track what you eat, when you eat and approximately how many calories you're eating. Weight loss is a numbers game - eat less than you burn. So first you need to know what you are eating to be able to start cleaning that up.

Once you have that information you can cut out unneeded calories or your least favourite extra calories in your day to day eating.

It's just like a budget - figure out what you are taking in and how much you 'spend' (via living and exercise) to get to your goal."
Monica Olivas

Monica Olivas

Monica is a writer and blogger from southern California. She blogs about diet, weight loss and healthy recipes. She has also completed dozens of marathons and successfully lost

20 lbs. ..and has kept it off!

"Eat breakfast. It doesn't need to be a traditional breakfast by any means, but try and make sure it has a bit of protein, fat and carbohydrate to get that metabolism going. My favourite breakfast is a slice of wholegrain sourdough bread, smeared with one-quarter of a ripe avocado and topped with chopped cherry tomatoes and parsley. With a poached egg.

Downsize your dishes. And while you are at it, your wine glasses. Many of us already eat pretty well, but it is portion control that stymies our efforts to be at a good weight.

Make it easier by eating an appropriate amount from smaller plates as the norm, and then if you want more it is a conscious decision.

Go out for your treats. Don't keep the things you tend to crave in the house. If you really want it/them, walk to the shop or drive if it is far. This extra step keeps what should be a treat actually a treat instead of any everyday occurrence.

Supersize your veggies. Get into the habit of adding one extra portion of non-starchy vegetable to any meal you make or buy. Extra fibre helps fill you up and keeps you healthy. And it is a great example for your family."

Steve Scott

Steve Scott

Steve is the face behind the 'The Develop Good Habits (DGH)' website. He is keenly interested in self-improvement and blogging to help others do the same. 

"I will go with what I believe is the most important and most effective: controlling portion sizes.

A healthy diet does not mean you need to starve yourself of calories...

but simply that you should be eating only the proper amount of all your food groups.

Many people have little idea of what really makes up a proper portion size. They may think they are eating their starch portion, with some fairly healthy whole grain rice, but may actually be consuming 2 or 3 portions.

But what can you do if you are unsure of what constitutes a proper portion size?

One answer is to simply buy smaller plates. 9 inch plates will hold 33% less food. This will not help balance your carbs, proteins, fruits and grains, but it is a great start.

The second thing would be to so a bit of research and see specifically what your portion sizes are supposed to be for different meals and take the time to weight and measure these portions until you have a good idea of exactly what constitutes the different portion sizes.

Finally you can use another quick method of measurement: Aportion control plate. These plates are designed to be placed over top of a standard 12 inch plate. They have inserts where you place the components of your meal, clearly showing when you are “overloading” on one of your food groups."

"Keep a food journal.

So often we think that we are on track, but when we actually see on paper what we are consuming, it is easier to tell where we might need to cut back."
Erin Turner

Erin Turner

Erin is a holistic health coach and a healthy living blogger, who focuses on all aspects of clean living including food, cleaning products, cosmetics, and more.

"1. Cook more often and eat communally. Home cooking has been shown to have enormous benefits.

People who cook frequently and eat with others live longer, have better ability to control the quality of food they eat, can reduce their carbon footprint, save money and even have healthier, happier children.

2. Skip dining out and start a dinner club instead. Get 5 friends together to start a dinner club with you. You cook once and then get invited to 5 dinner parties. You will eat better, save money and have a ton of fun.

3. Focus on adding more healthy foods to your diet. It turns out that adding more healthy foods to your diet is far more important than restricting unhealthy foods.

Adding healthy foods to your diet correlates with significantly longer longevity. Personally I find the more healthy foods I add to my diet the less room and interest I have for the unhealthy items. This is definitely a more fun, glass half-full approach to nutrition that has been proven to work."

"Go back to the basics.

Pullout the measuring cups and start measuring so you can see how much you’re really eating and adjust to correct portion sizes."
Lindsay

Steve Scott

Tim Powell

Tim is a 51-year-old blogger who lost 75 pounds in eight months. He writes blogs to "pay it forward" by giving a number of tips that helped him through the weight loss.

"Keep a food journal.

You can perform intense exercise every day, but if you aren't keeping your eating under control, you won't lose weight. Research finds that keeping a food journal can dramatically help with losing weight.

When you write down what you eat, you are more mindful of what you are eating, and are more inclined to stick with a healthy eating plan. Between-meal grazing is kept to a minimum, and for me it's the grazing that makes all the difference.

Food journaling also enables you to tweak your eating to get better results since you're able to see what you've eaten and measure the results.

How to do it...

I happen to use MyFitnessPal, and find it pretty easy to use for a tedious task (and it's free!). For any given day, it probably takes me about 10 minutes total to log my food.

The nice thing is, all I have to do is type in what I ate (like peanut butter), and a huge list of choices is presented - it has a really large food database.

So if I typed in "Kirkland Peanut Butter" it would limit it to the few kinds of peanut butter Costco sells. I do have to guess sometimes at quantities, but I figure as long as I'm within 10 or 20% I'm good. And it keeps track of ALL of the nutrition information, including carbs, protein and fat (fiber, sodium, etc.).

So I use it as a tool to not just track calories, but my macro-nutrient goals as well. There are others you can search for on the Internet, Apple or Android app stores."

Kris Gunnar

Kris Gunnars

Kris is a nutrition researcher with a Bachelor's degree in medicine. He has spent years reading books, blogs and scientific studies on nutrition.

"It's always a good idea to start measuring and tracking a bit to see where you are at.

For example, by weighing your food and calculating the calories and macros for a few days. Then you may get a better idea of some changes you need to make to get closer to your goals. There are many great free tools online that can help you accomplish this."

"Make one small change at a time. Do not cut out entire food groups ( i.e. fats, sugar, carbs, etc.), and exercise with intensity."

Allie Burdick

Allie Burdick

Allie is a distance runner who has competed on the national level. She is a coach, blogger, public speaker, and she still makes time to be a super mom to her twin boys!

Exercise & Fitness

"Focus on strength training. So many people focus on cardio when they are looking to lose weight, but that's a short-term mindset.

Cardio exercise burns calories only in the moment, whereas strength training will improve your metabolism to help you burn calories all day, every day.​"

Yuri Elkaim

Yuri Elkaim

Yuri is a NY Times best-selling author who has helped over 500,000 people improve their health and fitness.

"Instead of focusing on ‘how to lose 10 pounds’ make your goal to get stronger.

Aim to add more weight to the bar, perform more reps than last time, or progress to more challenging bodyweight exercises.

Improving your performance and eating well oftentimes is all you need."

Nia

Nia Shanks

Nia is a coach, health and fitness writer, and leader of the Lift Like a Girl revolution. She believes that every woman should strive to be the best, most awesome version of herself – authentically and unapologetically.

"The type of exercise is important. Implement a high-intensity interval training routine that keeps your body guessing and focuses on intensity rather than volume."

Ari Meisel

Ari Meisel

Ari is an achievement architect, author, speaker and teacher. His specialties include productivity, health and wellness, and biohacking human performance.

Healthy Mindset

"The best piece of advice I'd offer is to find your reason.

Why do you want to lose weight? Don't say to look good. Think about the core reason - to be healthy, to be able to keep up with your kids, to have more energy, to truly LIVE life.

Once you found that, find an activity that you truly enjoy. Experiment with better for you recipes. Look at portion sizes. Losing weight will happen!"

"JUST START.

Avoid paralysis by analysis. You can always adjust your course as you go, so just get started."
Deelle

Deelle Hines

Deelle is a wife, mom, a certifed personal trainer, a holistic nutrition consultant, a former national level long jumper, a body building athlete and fitness blogger.

"Start by looking in the mirror and saying, 'I love you.' 

Learn to love yourself and everything else will fall into place."

"Before you embarking on a weight-loss journey, grab a piece of paper and journal on why you want to lose weight and get healthy. As you're writing down your answers.

Keep asking yourself, 'Why do I want that?' and then again, 'Why do I want that?' Keep asking yourself until you can't go any deeper.

A lot of the times we say we want to lose weight so that we look good, but if you can tap into the deeper reason (like: I want to feel more confident or comfortable in my body), then you have a much better motivator to keep you going.

You can even go back and read your journal entry when you need a motivational boost! From there, pick healthy foods and activities you enjoy and be patient and loving with yourself -- life is too short to totally deprive yourself or do workouts you hate!

You deserve to be healthy -- and you deserve to live a life you love."

Jennipher

Jennipher Walters

Jennipher is one of the authors of "The Fit Bottomed Girls Anti-Diet" book. She is a blogger who focuses on health improvement through physical activity and healthy eating, minus the deprivation.

"When faced with the opportunity to indulge, ask yourself: ‘Is this really worth it or what I want right now?’

Often we indulge in treats just because they are there, rather than because we really want them.
Take a mindful pause and check in to see if having that treat will greatly enhance the experience of whatever you’re doing or not."
Anne

Anne has a Masters of Public Health in Nutrition. She is a registered dietitian, marathoner, yogi, cross-fitter, and lover of the outdoors. She seeks adventure, travel, and inspirations for new healthy recipe creations.

"Get in touch with the body. Deep inside, there is a hunger cue (which is NOT a mental thought) and a satiation cue.

Finding these two cues and honouring them honestly is the most important thing you will ever do for your health and weight."

Kimberley Brown

Kimberly Brown

Kimberly holds a Master of Science in Counseling and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Long Island University. She calls herself a whole life strategist – she helps people create a dynamic and executable plan for a better life, career and relationships.

"The number one piece of advice I have for someone looking to lose weight is for the person to...

Really take a few minutes to determine why they want to embark upon this journey.

Whether it's 5lbs or 100lbs - knowing your reason why, will keep you motivated on the days when going to the gym doesn't feel so appealing.

I also love creating a vision board around the reason so I can view (and remember why) everyday in my home."

"I believe that the first thing someone who wants to lose weight should do, is to dig deep for their 'BIG WHY.'

A reason so personal and powerful for them that will motivate them to not only start their weight-loss journey but also help them stick to it on days they feel like giving up.

They need to ask themselves: 'Why do I want to lose weight?' If the first answer to that question is something like, 'I just want to look good,' then the following question should be 'Well, why do I want to look good?'

And so on, they should keep asking this question until they discover their 'Big Why.'

Doing so and being honest with themselves will help them find a deeper meaning and purpose in their weight loss journey, resulting in much better chances of succeeding."

Jo Dominguez

Johana Dominguez

Johana is a hollistic health coach and a fitness competitor who was born in Colombia. After moving to North America as a teenager she adopted a junk food diet and gained weight. That motivated her to study healthy eating and exercise and now she teaches others to do the same.

"To build a new habit, you need two types of motivation: aspiration and confidence.

Aspiration is that big dream you have — you know, the one in which you are a more sparkling and alluring version of yourself. Initially focusing on this will get you going

To keep going, you need to build confidence. Switch your focus to bite-size goals that lead to your aspiration. It helps to track your progress in a simple, satisfying way. Definitely notice how each bite-size achievement makes you feel. Proud? Encouraged? Exhilarated? This builds the confidence that maintains momentum.

You now have permission to brag a little."

Renee is the author of "Serenity of the Mind: The Process of Self Mastery." She has over 20 years of applied study in the area of health and wellness, and certification training as a Holistic Nutritionist and Health Coach.

"Mindset is one factor to successfully reaching a weight loss goal. Start with daily affirmations using “I Am” such as “I Am in control of my weight” or “I Am healthy” and start to believe it even if you don’t.

Journal your thoughts, emotions and behaviors during the process of breaking old habits or starting new ones, and replace negative self-dialogue with positive affirmations.

Visualize yourself at your desired goal or what the end result will look like. The most powerful combination to break a habit or make a positive change is to practice daily verbal affirmations, journaling through written word, and visualizing attaining your goal.

Remember to be gentle on yourself and find gratitude in your smallest breakthroughs."

Lifestyle Changes

Ali McWilliams

Ali McWilliams

Ali has 20 years experience as a personal trainer, life coach, public speaker, and writer!

"I can't give just one piece of advice, so how about seven little tips you can choose from...

1. Never skip breakfast and eat a balanced breakfast (protein and carb).

2. Stop eating fast food.

3. Move more. Any little bit helps. No more elevators. 10 minute walk at lunch, etc.

4. Treat your body like it belongs to someone you love :)

5. Stop skipping meals.

6. Eat a protein and carb at every meal. Pick your protein first.

7. Drink a minimum of 6 glasses of water a day."

"Don't try to change your entire lifestyle and diet all at once. Try setting one simple, realistic, but specific goal (see my examples below).

The key is to pick something you can see yourself doing, and to make it simple enough that you don't feel overwhelmed.

As you build your wins and slowly develop good habits, you can lose weight and keep it off without feeling stressed!

Examples of Super Simple Goals:

- Drinking a glass of water first thing in the morning

- Eat one salad or serving of vegetables per week

- Do 3 minutes per day of stretching, walking or moving

- Once a week, swap a soda for water or coconut water"

Corrina Rachel

Corrina Rachel

Corrina is a Certified Holistic Health Coach who emphasizes the importance of having a healthy psychological approach to fitness and losing weight.

"One important habit you should develop to help improve your weight loss results is to take the process in small 7-day increments.

By focusing on just the upcoming week, you can set short-term goals you want to achieve during this time-frame. For instance, for the next week maybe you want to cut out all sugary drinks, prepare meals at home, and exercise at least 3 times.

Then on a Sunday afternoon or evening, review what went well over the past week and what may need improvement. By doing this you will be able to identify specifically what may need more focus and attention. Revise your agenda for the next seven days and hopefully you'll stick with your healthy plan to lose weight week after week."

Robb Wolf

Robb Wolf

Robb is a former powerlifting champion  who coaches athletes at the highest levels of competition and consults with Olympians and world champions in MMA, motocross, rowing and triathlon.

"Sleep more!"

"Put it in your agenda, and mark it as 'Busy'

This is not something you'll do "when you have time”, or “when you feel like it”. This is something you’ll do every day, at 4:30 PM, for 45 minutes (you set these parameters).

Be precise, set it in stone and start organizing your life around that important event, and not the other way around.

Then, tell people about it.

Build your own peer-pressure, and use it to your advantage. If people around you know that you’re supposed to be active at 4:30PM everyday, you’ll have added pressure not to let them…or yourself down."

David Gill

David Gill

David is the founder of Total Coaching, an online platform and mobile app that allows fitness professionals connect daily with their clients who are looking to get in better shape.

"Start small!

Ever hear the question, 'how do you eat an elephant?'

The answer is "one bite at a time," and it can make your health and fitness journey so much more manageable.

Don't go all gung-ho in the beginning or you're going to burn out the first time you go off plan. Trust me--I have failed so, so many times in the past!

When you're first starting out, pick one aspect of your life you want to change. Drink soda all the time? Switch to water. Eating tons of white pasta and bread? Switch to whole grains. Get used to ordering side salads with fast food combos instead of French fries.

Making healthy habits is a lot easier than trying to overhaul your entire life. Once you've mastered one habit, implement another one. This will also help prevent you from hitting that plateau later on."

Jessica Bowman

Anna Cope

Anna Cope

Anna is a wellness coach and an independent consultant. She helps people ditch their diets and fitness fads, and exchange them for more lasting approaches to healthy living.

"A healthy lifestyle is formed by a number of healthier choices done daily.

No diet or fitness fad will give you a long-lasting lifestyle change. Learn, get inspired and motivate yourself to becoming a new YOU.

I use what's called a 'Pick and Mix' success plan for a permanent lifestyle change. It works because you choose what is appropriate for your life and for your circumstances: Choose 5 areas, 5 tips, 5 minutes.

You choose which area to start with, and will find that one step leads to the next. For instance, you could choose exercise as your target area. Then commit to some brisk walking, even for 5 minutes, every morning. This will rev up your metabolism, encourage you to eat healthier, and get a smile of your face.

One small change provokes the next."

"If you ask 10 people how to lose 10 pounds fast, you'll get 10 different answers. And, they could all be 'right'.

What's important is to find what's 'right' for you. Approach weight loss with curiosity, and the desire to love and honour your body. Give yourself the space and the grace to slip up, and learn from mistakes. To get started, look at the big picture:

1. Ask yourself, how do you want to feel? And what does success look like? Think action steps: what to fit/ healthy/ strong people do everyday?​

2. From your vision of what success looks like/ what healthy and fit people do everyday, pick 1 or 2 things that you can implement into your life. Make those action steps the goal, rather than focusing on weight loss alone.

Possible action steps may be to walk on your lunch break, to make some swaps to whole, real food, to get 7-8 hours of sleep each night or to manage your stress and workload.

Don't get too overwhelmed with which habit to start with, just do something. Ask yourself if you can maintain those habits for the long term. The goal isn't just to lose 10 pounds quickly, is to also be 10 pounds lighter 1, 3, 10 years from now.

3. Get support. Whether you're a newbie when it comes to fitness and health, or have been on and off for your entire adulthood, invest time and energy, and possibly money, into getting support. Consider a coach, a close friend, or a community of like-minded people to help you reach your goals.
