10 Pounds in 10 Days is a weight loss program created by television personality and fitness trainer, Jackie Warner.
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.
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.
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.
This 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.)
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.
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.
Chicken breast, low-fat cottage cheese, oatmeal, sprouted grain bread, protein bars, spinach, alfalfa sprouts, celery, tomato, broccoli, potatoes, avocado, apples, almonds, walnuts, mustard, extra-virgin olive oil, stevia, green tea, herb tea, coffee.
1 cup green tea
2 slices whole-grain bread
Craving Control Bar
Pan-grilled chicken breast prepared with ½ teaspoon garlic, ½ tablespoon olive oil, salt and pepper
1 bag decaf green tea with 1 bag herbal tea
Dieters are provided with Warner’s “10×10 Training Program”, which includes detailed illustrated daily workouts. The fitness regime is organized into three 10-day plans that correlate with the three phases of the diet.
The workouts highlight quick bursts of cardio activity alternating with muscle-toning exercises. Warner claims this approach is the quickest way to burn fat and adjust your set point towards your ideal weight.
10 Pounds in 10 Days: The Secret Celebrity Program for Losing Weight Fast retails at $18.
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.
