There is no one correct way to lose weight. What helps one person shed pounds and fat may not work on another.
Because we’re all so different, from our food preferences to our body chemistry, the only successful way to reach and maintain a healthy weight is to find what works for you.
There probably are a million ways to gain 10 pounds, but here are 19 ways to lose them—whether it is the your first or last 10 pounds.
These tips have been proven to work especially for women who are just starting out to lose weight.
1. Keep hydrated at all times
Research shows that dieters who guzzle plenty of H2O lose more weight than those who don’t. There’s a reason why Tom Brady looks THAT good and is still playing in the NFL past the age of 40— in his recently released book “The TB12 Method”, his diet consists of drinking up to 2.5 gallons of water a day. And to break it down for you, that’s 36 glasses of water a day!
2. Go vegetarian
In general, vegetarians have lower body weights than their meat-eating peers. It won’t be a bad idea to follow their lead—at least until you drop a few pounds. But still, keep the cooking clean—no deep fried tempura vegetables.
3. Or better yet, go vegan
If you want to go a bit further (and also to be even kinder to animals), take it to the next level by swearing off eggs and dairy, too. Cheese can make you fat.
4. Eat fresh
Eliminate packaged foods and eat only fresh ingredients you’ve prepared. No bags, boxes, cans, or cartons allowed. Simple enough?
5. Diet hard for just 2 days a week
If you can’t stick to some changes all the time, try slashing your calories to 650 a day just two days a week and eating normally the other days. One study suggests this offers protection from breast cancer as well as assistance with weight loss.
6. Cut out sugar (or be less sweet)
Everyone knows sugar isn’t healthy, but when you start reading labels, you find it in unexpected places, like pasta sauce and frozen entrées. Cutting the sugar out of your diet will mean healthier meals overall.
7. Cut out the white flour
The short-term elimination of floury foods like white bread and pastries can efficiently kick-start your weight loss plan. Besides the great taste of white floured foods, it doesn’t have any nutritional benefits as all the vitamins and fiber have been “processed” out.
8. Sleep more
Research shows that those who don’t get enough shut-eye eat more and reach for more fattening grub than people who get plenty of rest. So, pull down all the blinds and get at least 8 hours of sleep a day.
9. Have more sex
As if you need more reasons to have sex—a thirty minute of sex burns at least 60 calories for a 150-pound woman.
10. Eat at home as often as possible
Meals eaten away from home have 134 more calories, on average.
11. Eat nuts
A recent study found that dieters who snacked on shelled pistachios shed more pounds than those who ate other snacks, even though they contained the same amount of calories.
12. Eat a grapefruit everyday
A study conducted by the University of Alberta found eating one grapefruit daily helped 58% of subjects to lose more weight than the other other group that didn’t get a grapefruit.
13. Cut out all sugary drinks, diet included
Large sodas have 500-plus calories, and juice isn’t much better. Be like Tom and drink water instead.
14. Eat soup for dinner
Soup’s high water content makes it a low-calorie and filling option. Just steer clear of the creamy kinds.
15. Spice up your meals
Chilli peppers really can rev your metabolism, according to research conducted by the University of Alberta.
16. Don’t skip breakfast
Those who enjoy a morning meal have been shown over and over to be slimmer than breakfast skippers.
17. Eat more Greek yogurt
A recent report revealed the foods most identified with maintaining a healthy weight, and Greek yogurt ranked among the best.
18. Stay away from potato chips
At the top of the list for foods that make you add pounds is potato chips—it does not matter whether they’re baked, broiled or fried—they’re all bad for you.
19. Follow this simple “bedtime routine” that burns up to 1 lb of belly fat a day
If you’re upset about your weight and want to lose a little more, get this…
Tara, a 40-year old overweight cop of 27 years with pre-diabetes has just SHOCKED the medical community by losing an unheard of 26 pounds in just 16 days.
She went on to burn off 50 pounds in the next 2 months without starving herself or exercising.

The amazing thing is, all she did was this super simple “bedtime routine” that tricked her body into reconditioning your 3 female weight-loss hormones to drastically accelerate fat-burning while you sleep.
And the best part is you still get to eat all the foods you love.
If you’re a woman over the age of 25 who wants to reclaim her life inside the body she DESERVES, you should check it out for yourself.
Just a heads up, it works best if you’re at least 15 lbs overweight so keep that in mind, ok.
