She reveals the methods that get her celebrity clients in shape ultra-fast so that you too can achieve rapid results such as a pound a day.

Jackie Warner is also the author of This is Why You’re Fat.

10 Pounds in 10 Days Basics

The program consists of three 10-day phases.

It is designed to help you lose ten pounds fast and then continue losing weight over thirty days.

Phase 1

The first phase involves the use of a 900-calorie diet to quickly stimulate weight loss. You will emphasize foods like whole grains and vegetables that are high in fiber and nutrients.

This helps to reduce carbohydrate cravings by keeping your blood sugar levels in balance.

By the end of phase one, you can expect to have lost up to ten pounds.

Phase 2

10-pounds-10-daysThis stage allows a 1200 calorie intake daily and introduces you to ten superstar foods. These foods have specific benefits that enhance your weight loss efforts.

For example, asparagus helps the liver eliminate toxins and has a strong anti-inflammatory effect. Brown rice provides manganese, which enhances the synthesis of fatty acids which is important for weight loss.

You will also eat cellulite-busting foods such as broccoli, kale, and parsley. (Although the research supporting this is nonexistent.)

Phase 3

The last phase increases your calorie allowance to 1500. You are advised to eat two eggs every day because they are high in protein and fat-burning lecithin.

Also Includes Maintenance Guidelines

Warner also offers advice for maintaining your weight loss. This basically entails following the phase 3 diet but with up to two treat meals on the weekend.

This is designed to help dieters eat more normally and enjoy social functions like going out to eat and parties.

Quick Weight Loss Extreme Low-Calorie!

Most people will lose weight very quickly on this program because it combines extreme calorie restriction with increased physical activity.

However, calorie intake on this diet is well below the generally acceptable levels for healthy weight loss. This can increase the risk of nutrient deficiencies, chronic health problems and slow metabolism that could potentially trigger rebound weight gain.

    “This can increase the risk of nutrient deficiencies, chronic health problems and slow metabolism that could potentially trigger rebound weight gain.”

    Expertly worded “increase the risk” meaning if you group people together – those who have only done this for a short while with those that have done it for a very long time, then you’ve arbitrarily created a group that you can describe as increased risk. Sure, but meaningless. None of those things will happen in 10 days. You’d have to do it for significantly longer, many months. You lose water when you cut carbs, you gain water when you increase carbs – it’s neither a fat loss nor a rebound fat gain, it’s just something that impacts the scale weight to be aware of.

    In the long run, 10 days plans can give you a huge appearance of weight loss (water weight), but only a real fat loss of a couple pounds, and unless you are only needing to lose 2 lbs, you otherwise really will need to think longer term. But it is a useful tool to go on a 10 day plan, for many of us. It’s way too boring to constantly slog it out on slow motion plans, and multi-year lifestyle goals are not in the least bit motivating to me. I’ve lost 60 lbs over 3 years, but if I had to think about it that way from the start, I’d have just quit. Those promoting lifestyle changes need to be aware of how devastating their concepts are to some people – everyone is different.

    I thrive on shorter term goals – and then ultimately have to repeat them a lot, and thanks to healthy yo-yo dieting, small weight gains never stay on – and in the long run I lose weight.

    Everyone is different, for some this plan may not work, and be counter productive. For me, it is a good one. I will only lose 2 to 3 real pounds, but that’s a successful 10 days. If I taper it into a period of staying relatively the same, and then go on another 10 day a few weeks from now, that’s a great way to have a good month.

    As a vegetarian, I find the obsession with protein to be way over stated as well. I will try to eat a bit more protein, with yogurt, a few almonds, occasional lentil, and even I will eat an egg every once in a while. But still, I never hit the protein targets and with no ill effects. As long as you are exercising, your body is going to repair your muscles and you will gain strength.

    I’m not arguing that your body will use protein if you eat it, but I’m telling you it isn’t nearly so important as people believe – I gain strength, not lose it, as long as I “exercise” – it’s about physical activity far more so than it’s about what you are eating.

    It’s a real thing that you can starve your body of energy and harm your health, but we aren’t in that group lacking energy stores – we have this energy store called “tons of extra fat” and we are going to make our body use it, simple as that.

    You should not only be dependent fully on a specific diet plan,there is also a need to workout to balance your weight loss program.

    I’m sorry but the only protein I see here is chicken for dinner, besides the 8 almonds and 1 walnut. I believe we need much more protein than that in our daily intake of food. Also, what about people who are gluten intolerant and cannot eat bread or oatmeal? What are the alternatives?

    Be honest with yourself, you cannot lose weight by counting calories and micro-nutrients unless you’re honest. That’s first and foremost. I’ve gone from 188 pounds to 138 pounds in 4 months. The only weight loss trick you need to know is two things. First, if your goal is mainly to lose weight, then all you need is an caloric deifict. Second, everything about nutrition you need to know can be online on the bodybuilding main webpage. For me, I’ve been successful with weight loss just tracking calories alone. So successful, I managed to lose 50 pounds doing it. This is the program I used. My best advice would be to stop pushing your weight loss goals and start losing weight now! One day lost is one more day of not reaching your goals!
