Calorie counting may be boring, but it does pay off. By knowing exactly how many calories you need, and how many you are taking in, you can plan your adjustments to have the best effect. A pound of weight is equivalent to 3500 calories, so if you can either cut that many calories out of your diet, or exercise to remove that much, then you will be one pound of weight nearer to your goal.

Start to exercise. Doing the math will show you that you need to remove 35000 calories, either by exercising, or by cutting down on your food consumption, to lose the targeted 10 pounds. A typical human being of around 160 lbs will use 300+ calories by running gently for 30 minutes. A much heavier person will lose a lot more than that, but this illustrates how possible it is, with the right techniques and some determination, to get rid of a lot of excess weight.

Try no to cut foods out completely. Assuming your favorite food is chocolate cake, you know that you will need to moderate your intake of it, as it will be impossible to sustain weight loss unless you do. However, if you cut it out completely, you will probably find yourself missing it too much, and the task of sticking to your program will be that much harder. The best solution is to keep your favorite foods to give yourself a treat when you manage to achieve one of your targets – the only problem could occur if you give yourself too big a reward, and end up eating the whole cake…

Trying to lose 10 pounds in 2 weeks is being very ambitious, so if you don’t quite get there, don’t worry about it. The end result should be in sight, so just keep going until you achieve it.
