How to Lose 20 Pounds in 10 Weeks

Finally, a Healthy Way to Shed Fat Fast That Really Works!

Their claims are outlandish.

I saw an ad today that advertised you can lose 30 pounds in just a couple weeks. While some people would be skeptical at a claim like this, I’m not. I know it can be done.

In fact, if you were to go on one of the many starvation diets that are out there today, you can lose much more than that. I’ve seen people on those melt away to almost nothing in a very short period of time. Only 20 pounds in 10 weeks?

Why does the title of my article, then, rave about losing 20 pounds in 10 weeks? Well, there are 2 other major points in my title I’d like to point out. First, I use the word, “healthy.”

Another term I use in the title is “Shed Fat Fast.” Notice I did not say “Shed Weight Fast.” Why? Let me explain.

If you just stop eating, like most of the starvation diets tell you to, you will lose gobs of weight. But most of that weight will not be fat. It will be muscle. And you certainly will not be healthy.

Aim for 1%

Almost all weight loss experts agree that a healthy weight loss goal to shoot for is about 1 per cent of your body weight per week. If you’re 200 pounds, that’s about 2 pounds per week.

What’s more, is that these same experts say that if you lose more than a couple pounds a week, you’re losing water weight or muscle, not the dreaded fat. This means your metabolism goes down, and your body fat percentage goes up.

If you want to lose weight in a healthy way, slow is the only way to go. Unfortunately, the fat just won’t disappear any faster. If you do lose weight faster, then it’s not fat.

You don’t lose the fat by starving yourself or cutting out your favorite foods. You don’t have to run 10 miles a day or live in a gym.

Ignore the Sensationalism

Most of all, you don’t have to believe all the hype that’s out there today. The weight loss industry is big business, and they don’t want you to lose weight permanently. If you did, they’d be out of business.

They want you to believe the hype. They want you to think the ideal is to lose as much weight in as short a time as possible. That way, when you fail using Product A (and you will), they have Product B to sell you, which has none of the failings of Product A.

Trust me when I tell you that losing 2 pounds every week is the ideal. If you do that, you can bank on the fact that you’re actually losing 2 pounds of fat – not muscle, not water.
