Losing weight is hard.
Unless you’re THAT guy or girl who was blessed with the talent of eating whatever and whenever you’d like and don’t know what your stomach would look like without a 6-pack…
One of the most important stages in shedding weight is early on – in the beginning. Nothing is more demoralizing than busting your butt for a month and not seeing the results you were hoping for… sound familiar?
Well, we decided to check in with 21 diet & nutrition experts to see what they would recommend doing in order to lose 10 pounds in a month.
These 21 tips for losing 10lbs in a month will help you create and sustain a lifestyle that will lead to HEALTHY weight loss. There really is no point in dropping a quick 10lbs in an unhealthy way really fast just to gain it all back just as fast because of some gimmick or crazy diet fad.
So here we go. Start taking notes. 🙂
Expert Tips – HOW TO LOSE 10 LBS IN A MONTH
Name: Anthony “Gainz” LaVigne
Tip: My best advice would be to increase cardio substantially, cut calories, and keep water intake high.
Name: Dani Lieberman
Tip: 30 minutes of activity a day, also making sure to hit 10,000 steps on top of that. Start drinking one 8oz glass of water before you eat each meal.
Name: Angelina Papanikolaou
Tip: Cut out all process foods.
Name: Clara Norfleet
Tip: Cut out all sugary beverages – soda, sweet tea, juices, Gatorade/Powerade, sugary coffee drinks, alcohol! Drink water in place of these drinks.
Name: Denisse Porras
Tip: Exercise, clean up your diet significantly, drink lots of water.
Name: Gabriel Misirian
Tip: Up your fibrous vegetable intake and lean proteins.
Name: Aline Stoddard
Tip: Low Carbo Diet, Intermittent Fasting, and exercise.
Name: Stephanie Worth
Tip: Unfortunately, there is no quick fix, but through consistent healthful eating and exercise you will likely see the weight loss.
Name: Stefanie Braun
Tip: The first thing I tell people is to cut out the “little things.” Drinks such as cola, juice, coffee beverages, etc. with added sugars can rack up in calories if you drink them quite frequently. I also tell them to be careful when buying processed foods. Fast food can rack up high in sodium and fat. It is important not only how to read a nutrition label, but to understand why these foods that we think are healthy choices sometimes might not be the best because of the unnecessary added calories from dressings, condiments, etc.
Name: Laura Grazioli
Tip: My best advice for weight loss is to stay away from restriction and fad diets. Slow, steady weight loss of 1-2 pounds per week, is the best way to lose weight and actually keep it off. If you try to lose weight too quickly, you’ll end up losing mostly water weight and muscle, and you’ll be more likely to gain that weight back. Instead, keep a well-balanced diet, watch your portions, and stay physically active!
Name: Kristina Todini, RDN
Tip: Simplify, simplify, simplify. My go-to advice for getting back on track: eat more veggies, drink more water, get moving. It really is that simple.
Name: Julianne Kanzaki
Tip: Eliminate refined sugars from your diet (mostly found in packaged/processed foods) and sweetened beverages.
Name: Leah Silberman
Tip: Combine a protein and a fiber at your meals. For example, an omelet with vegetables. You will get protein from the eggs, and fiber from the vegetables. This combination will help satiate you, and keep you fuller for longer, so you’re not constantly snacking throughout the day.
Name: Marissa Campanella
Tip: It’s not usually recommended to lose that much weight quickly. However if someone is drinking sweetened beverages, I suggest swapping those out for water first!
Name: Jamie MacDonald
Tip: I never advocate losing much more than 2-3lbs per week and 3 only if you have a lot of fat to lose. If I was slightly overweight I would decrease my daily calories by about 500 per day while ensuring that I keep my protein intake relatively high (between 0.8 and 1.2g per pound of body weight). With this approach I can ensure I’m losing fat and not muscle and that I’m not severely cutting calories that will lead to fat regain. Everyone should aim to retain as much lean muscle as possible as the more you have the stronger your metabolism will be.
Name: Olivia Nicole
Tip: Wake up each day with the intention you are going to work hard and are determined to reach your goals! Incorporate a minimum of 30 mins of physical activity every day. Prepare well-balanced meals with whole natural ingredients. Remove all processed and genetically modified foods from your meal prepping. Most importantly fall in love with the process and how your body feels!
Name: Stephanie Geyer
Tip: Keto diet.
Name: Brittany Bucey
Tip: I don’t like to give any advice on “quickly” losing weight. It’s not about how fast you can lose unhealthy weight. It’s really about how you can ease into a healthier lifestyle. The best way to “lost weight” I would say would be to start out with a 1-3 day juice cleanse and then just eating a well-balanced diet. 6 small meals, every 2-3 hours. 1/2 your plate with fresh vegetables. Cut out the refined carbs, fried foods, sodas, etc. Enjoy some fresh air/exercise and keep a positive mind!
Tip: Incorporate some cardio in your routine, take down your “treat” intake, and start logging your food!
Name: Anthony Miller
Tip: More water and exercise.
Name: Caitlin Rasmussen
Tip: Evaluate your lifestyle. Cut out all junk food and replace it with whole real food – fruits, veggies, lean meats, fish, whole grains.
These are some fantastic nuggets for dropping 10lbs in a month from experts in the diet and nutrition fields!
A few things to remember:
- Try to eliminate processed foods
- Stop drinking sugary drinks
- Drink more water!
- Plan your meals as much as possible
- Don’t buy junk!
- Increase that cardio
- Eat lean protein and veggies
