It may be advisable to speak with your Doctor first, or consult a nutritionist or expert in the weight loss industry. A lot of you guys don't believe that it's possible to lose 10 pounds in a week. It is possible if you have the time and are willing to put in the effort that is necessary to get there. Whats more, here are the numbers that back it up. For instance, to burn a pound's worth of calories requires that you burn about 3500 calories a day. Therefore to lose 10 pounds in a week, you need to lose about 1.4 pounds or burn 4900 calories. You can accomplish this by cutting back on the amount of calories you eat a day and also increasing your cardio workout time.
As an example if you cut your daily calorie intake by 500 and worked out long enough to burn the other 4400, you could effectively lose 1.4 pounds a day. You don't want to cut back to much on your calories, since this will trigger your body to go in survival mode and cause you to store fat as oppose to burning it. To burn 4400 calories on say a tread mill, working out at a rate of 1 mile per 10 minutes would take you around 4 hours and 36 minutes to burn those calories. As you see this requires a lot of time. For this to be a realistic goal, you need to divide your workout into a least two or, if possible, more workout sessions. Of course, your work out times could decrease if you are in good enough shape to work out harder. Just be sure to stay in your fat burning zone.
Working out for this long period of time will also drain your body of the needed carbohydrate that helps to fuel the burning of fat. Because of this, it is advisable to sip on an energy drink such as Gatorade every 10 to 15 minutes. This is actually the only time that a high glycemic product should be taken when you're trying to lose weight.
