How to Lose the Last 10 Pounds
I talked to fitness experts Shannon Barbadian and Lori Kenyon Farley to collect a roundup of tips that will help you lose that last bit of super stubborn fat. If you’re determined and motivated to tackle your goal and follow all the way through, well then more power to you. Follow these eight tips and you’ll say sayonara to those final few pounds in no time at all.
Cut Out Liquid Calories
“Beware hidden calories in soda, lattes, blended coffee drinks and alcohol,” says Farley. She advises that you completely cut out any calorie-dense drinks that you consume on a regular basis during the week and replace them with water. “Save those for a weekend treat.”
“Indoor cycling is a great way to get that heart rate into the perfect fat-burning zone, and when done efficiently with no gimmicks, can be one of the most efficient calorie and fat burners,” says Barbadian. “Try taking class in the evening after work, when your body normally wants to rest. This will help increase your metabolic rate.” Farley also advised that you add more cardio workouts to your routine. She suggests a minimum of 45 minutes, five times a week. If spinning isn’t your thing, try something like running stairs or rowing.
Revisit Your Diet
“Are you eating any processed food? Carb heavy meals? Be sure to cut out artificial and sugar laden foods and replace them with real foods,” says Farley. “For instance, rather than sugary cereal, a bagel or pastry for breakfast, have an egg white scramble with wheat toast, or oatmeal with nuts and berries.”
