How to Lose 10 Pounds in 30 Days

1. Start with a fast day.

I'm normally not a fast/cleanse kinda guy, but only drinking clear liquids for 24 hours is a great way to hit the reset button on your normal habits.

2. Exercise first thing every morning.

But not long--20 minutes of moderate cardio is enough.

3. Eat four or five almonds 15 minutes before every meal.

I'm sure there's science behind this, but here's what I know: I'm always less hungry and therefore eat less when I have four or five almonds 15 minutes before a meal.

4. Drink a glass of water just before every meal.

One, drinking more water is good for you. Two, you'll partly fill your stomach and will feel full faster.

5. Always stop eating when you start to feel full.

Always. In a few days your stomach will adapt to the new reality, any hunger pangs you feel early on will fade, and you'll reset your perception of "full."

6. Don't eat anything white.

White flours and white sugars are the enemy. That means foods like white breads, cookies, white pasta, white rice, and white potatoes are out.

7. Make sure every meal is healthy.

Easily done. Just include a serving of lean protein (fish, poultry, egg whites, etc.) with two servings of vegetables or one serving of vegetables and one serving of fruit.
