10 Pounds in 10 Days Basics

The program consists of three 10-day phases.

It is designed to help you lose ten pounds fast and then continue losing weight over thirty days.

Phase 1

Involves the use of a 900-calorie diet to quickly stimulate weight loss. You will emphasize foods like whole grains and vegetables that are high in fiber and nutrients.

This helps to reduce carbohydrate cravings by keeping your blood sugar levels in balance.

By the end of phase 1 you can expect to have lost up to ten pounds.

Phase 2

This stage allows a 1200 calorie intake daily and introduces you to ten superstar foods. These foods have specific benefits that enhance your weight loss efforts.

For example, asparagus helps the liver eliminate toxins and has a strong anti-inflammatory effect. Brown rice provides manganese, which enhances the synthesis of fatty acids, important for weight loss.

You will also eat cellulite-busting foods such as broccoli, kale and parsley.

Phase 3

The last phase increases your calorie allowance to 1500. You are advised to eat two eggs every day because they are high in protein and fat-burning lecithin.

Also Includes Maintenance Guidelines

Warner also offers advice for maintaining your weight loss. This basically entails following the phase 3 diet but with up to two treat meals on the weekend.

Quick Weight Loss Extreme Low-Calorie!

Most people will lose weight very quickly on this program because it combines extreme calorie restriction with increased physical activity.

However, calorie intake on this diet is well below the generally acceptable levels for healthy weight loss. This can increase the risk of nutrient deficiencies, chronic health problems and slow metabolism that could potentially trigger rebound weight gain.
