To lose 10 pounds in a week is not an easy task, but at the same time, it is not entirely impossible.

In fact, Joe Frazier lost 11lbs in his fight with Ali, and Sugar Ray lost 13lbs in his fight with Hagler.

Both lost such amount of weight within an hour, therefore losing 10 pounds in a week is not impossible.

1. Water Flush (Not Drinking Water)

The major factor when trying to lose 10 pounds in a week, is the amount of water you will need to consume.

That said, you need to realize that the way you consume the water, will be the deciding factor if you are able to lose the said amount of weight in this short time frame.

For you to understand where I am going with this, you need to first understand this analogy.

Let’s say you take a big dump in the toilet, and try to flush it by pouring in little splashes of water.

Chances are that massive, round, robust dump, won’t flush down the toilet, right?

To flush it down, you need to pour in a lot of water into the toilet, rapidly.

In the same vein, when you sip water spread out across the day, the effect is not as much felt, as when you drink massive amounts of water rapidly in a set time daily.

To execute the water flush just follow the steps below.

  1. Get a 150 cl bottle. You can buy this from a store or use, the empty bottle of a 150 cl soda.
  2. Immediately after waking up (before you even brush your teeth). Fill the 150 cl bottle with water of room temperature. Make sure the water is room temperature.
  3. Drink the entire contents of the bottle within 5 minutes. Make sure 10 mins have not passed since you woke up and when you finished drinking the 150 cl bottle of room temperature water.
  4. At noon or when your urine starts becoming colored, fill the 150 cl bottle with water.
  5. Add 3 spoons of apple cider vinegar to the 150 cl of water.
  6. Drink 75cl of the apple cider vinegar water by noon.
  7. By 6 pm drink the remaining half (75 cl) of the bottle.

Note: Drinking water more than 2 liters in one sitting is strongly advised against, as it can cause death, due to water intoxication.

Also, water should preferably be at room temperature, but any water between 25°C (77°F) – 40 °C(104°F) is ok since the aim of this is not to stay hydrated but to flush your entire system like you flush your toilet.

2. Diet

As you try to lose 10 pounds in a week, your diet should contain lots of proteins and fewer carbohydrates and fats.

Many people recommend the cabbage soup diet, but personally after trying it, I feel, and believe I speak for everybody who has ever tried the cabbage soup, that it is disgusting.

Instead, you should try the stir fried cabbage diet.

During this rapid weight loss phase, you are strongly advised to avoid, poached or fried eggs.

Instead, you should eat hard boiled eggs.

Also, you should avoid, flesh or meat from pork, reptiles, like snakes etc. For some reason, it affect many people.

Fish and meat from ruminant animals is the best source of protein for you during your weight loss journey.

Also, crustaceans, such as lobsters, shrimps and crayfish, since they are the cockroaches of the sea, and generally, offer no added nutritional value, which cannot be provided by the allowed meat sources.

Most importantly, avoid eating unnecessary junk food. Learn how to eat clean, by cooking for yourself.

3. Exercise

I for one, love working smart, not hard. In other words, I like working like an ant, and eating like an elephant, and not working like an elephant and eating like an ant.

Working smart is what separated the winners, from the second bests.

There is no point working hard in the gym, just to impress people around you when there are better workout alternatives, that will maximize your weight loss results.

You must realize that the body and a house have one thing in common… they are both buildings.

Whereas a house is an inorganic building, a the body is an organic building.

As such, just as a house has a foundation, the body also has a foundation, which is the back. And, all buildings without a strong foundation, collapse and perish.

For this reason, it is imperative, to strengthen the foundation of your organic building (body), which is your back, that way, your whole body becomes firm and in place.

Only three workouts, fulfill this part, of training and strengthening the foundation of the human body.

  1. Squats
  2. Leg raises.
  3. Running

Engaging in only this three workouts regularly, will help you lose 10 pounds of fats in a week.

4. Garlic and Ginger

I know, I spoke about diet, but this deserved to stand alone as a topic, in itself.

The health benefits of garlic and ginger, are numerous, and well known.

In fact, one key benefit of ginger and garlic is it ability to aid in weight loss.

5. Tips

To lose 10 pounds in a week, you need some weight loss tips that will help you during this jorney.

  1. Drinks lots of water.
  2. Eat garlic and ginger
  3. Rest, by having an adequate amount of sleep.
  4. Avoid stressful environment.


When there is a will there is a way, If you can believe in something, then you can achieve it, when you don’t believe, then you can’t achieve.

For this reason, if you don’t believe that you can lose 10 pounds in a week, then you can’t achieve it.

But if you believe it, then you can achieve it.

That said, just believing doesn’t guarantee the success of your plan.

To make your weight loss plan, fool proof, you need to apply knowledge and wisdom to your endeavor, if not you will be heading towards the unavoidable path of doom, littered with injuries, failures and depression.

For this reason, you should be willing to be flexible and adaptable, just like water, and not stiff-neck, stubborn and unwilling to compromise.

If not, failure will be your final cup of tea.
