How To Easily Lose 22 Pounds In 10 Weeks

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Whoops. 210 pounds. OMG. Where did it all come from? From my eating habits, that’s where. I was always around the 185 pound mark since my early 20′s(I am 48 now) but the last 3-4 years has seen me gain 25 more.

I guess you are the same as me where you look in the mirror and declare that one day, just one day, I am going to lose this midriff. Don’t get me wrong here. I am not striving for a 6 pack. I simply need trimming down. I would like a dollar for every time I said it to myself. I could buy a donut store with the money.(kidding).

Anyway, 10 weeks ago I made the conscious decision that the weight was coming off. No more mucking around. Now, I am not one for shakes and pills and meetings so I devised my own plan to do this. It is very simple and does not have you eating lettuce and cabbage leaves.

TIP! Lift weights to make yourself a better runner. Many runners don’t even look to weights as an accompaniment to their sport, but they’d be wise to do so.

You do not have to go organic or Eastern or low fat, high carb mumbo jumbo. It is so seriously simple you will kick yourself after reading how I went about losing the weight. Actually, I think you will love this eating plan. I do. And I am going to tell you the only ingredient that you have to stop which I hope does not cause too much angst among you.

Here it is. Firstly, throw out your dinner plate. Well, put it away somewhere. Go to a store and buy a plate close to half the size of the one you are now using. Now when you serve up dinner instead of putting 3 roast potatoes on the plate only put 1.5, instead of 5 slices of roast beef only put 3. Instead of smothering it in gravy only put on a modest amount.

See the pattern? When you have apple pie for dessert only have half the portion you would usually have. And for that cup of coffee only put in half the sugar you normally would have. Has the penny dropped yet? We are still eating exactly what we have before but we are eating less of it.

TIP! For a better workout, make sure to keep your wrists bent when you to bicep exercises. Extend your wrists backwards and do your bicep exercise as you normally would.

Now be serious here. Do you really need to have the amount you are having now? Do you absolutely have to eat every morsel of food that is dished up? Of course not. Limit the amount that goes in and the pounds will fall off. I averaged 2 pounds a week for 10 weeks.

I still eat my favorite chocolate biscuits but I only have 2 instead of the 5 or 6 I used to have. I eat exactly what I ate before only in smaller portions. Sure you may still be hungry doing this method but that will only last a week or two until your stomach adjusts to what it being fed. We can top up with water if we feel empty anyway.

I alluded previously to the one ingredient we must delete from our regime. What is it? Simply put it is alcohol. Yep. Give up the grog. I was fond of a drink 10 weeks ago but realised that this was contributing to the weight gain. be honest, do we really need it? I don’t, so giving up was a cinch for me.

TIP! Focus on your flexibility, which is an important facet that can be overlooked. It is essential that you have a good amount of stretching in your workout so that your muscles stay loose.

There you have it. The plan that made me lose 22 pounds in 10 weeks. I feel better, my stamina has improved and I can see body parts I could not before. Put in simple terms, only eat 60-50% of what you are eating now to help with your weight loss plan.

I have put together the definitive guide for building muscle. Titled 10 Tips For Building Muscles, it will put you on the path to health and wellness.
