Can You Lose 10 Pounds In A Month?

This question is asked frequently in terms of weight loss – can you lose 10 pounds in a month?  The answer is plain and simple – yes, but you must be willing to work at it.  There is no magic pill for losing weight.  The trick to shedding unwanted fat is good old-fashioned hard work and discipline.  You must be willing to change your lifestyle and incorporate healthy food choices and exercise.

Experts recommend that people lose no more than 2-3 pounds per week.  Doctors have favored losing no more than 1-2 pounds per week in order to keep the weight off over the long term.  To lose 10 pounds in a month, you must be willing to burn more calories than you take in and lose about 2.45 pounds per week.  When you break the numbers down, they become more reasonable to achieve in your mind.  If you focus on the end result rather than the everyday battle, you are more likely to give up.

Successful physical trainers report that getting their clients to focus on conquering each day, rather than the goal they are shooting for creates a pattern of behavior that is favorable for weight loss.  Ten pounds is not Mount Everest, but it does require hard work and a willingness to fight through each day.  Healthy eating habits and plenty of exercise, accompanied with will power and determination will help you achieve your goal.
