How to Lose 7-10 Lbs in a Week


Losing a significant amount of weight in such a short time span of one week is nearly impossible. But to achieve this goal you can undertake a strict diet and exercise routine for the week that shall help you as much as possible to lose. Losing weight as soon as possible is no joke and one cannot do it without an overwhelming amount of motivation by his side.

The one week diet is split into two phases over the week. The first couple of days are where you follow the specified meal plan for all your meals. No snacks are allowed between those meals. Total calorie intake during these one weeks is around 1100-1400 calories a day which is much lower than that of an average adult’s daily intake. On the remaining 4 days, you can eat according to your liking but the foods must be healthy so that your calorie intake remains low.

Tell Your Friends About Your Plan:

When it is about losing weight, being answerable to someone can be one of the biggest motivations you can get. By telling your friends you will always have this in the back of your mind that if you don’t succeed you’ll have to answer to them about it. Nobody wants to be a failure in front of their friends. But don’t let them go far with their jokes on your weight. Even if that’s the case, you need to be motivated to shut them up.

Exercise Ball Challenge:

An exercise ball  unarguably challenges the core strength and balance of a human body. It can be used for learning on how to perform moves in a more controlled way. A large swiss ball and set of dumbbells is enough for this routine.

  • Lie with your upper back placed firmly on the Swiss ball to do:
    Dumbbell chest press: 12-15 reps
    Dumbbell fly: 12-15
  • Lie face up on the floor and place your lower legs and heels on the Swiss ball to do:
    Hip raise: 12-15 reps
    Leg curl: 12-15 reps
  • Get into pushup position and place your feet on the Swiss ball to do:
    Pushup: 10 reps
    Jackknife: 10 reps

Quick Cardio Runs:

In this routine, intense sprints are used to fuel fat burning and production of human growth hormone. Try this cardio routine and perform it 4 times in total.

  • Sprint for 1 minute.
  • Walk/jog for 1 minute.
  • Sprint on an incline for 1 minute.
  • Walk/jog for 1 minute.


You only drink a fat loss soup for 5 days this week. The only alternate for the soup is water. If you can do this you’ll surely lose the required amount of weight in a week’s time. Otherwise, there is simply no chance. The full recipe to the soup is present in my previous article. The method of preparation is pretty simple and similar to our regular routine soup preparation. Put coconut oil and sauté the vegetables, except the tomato and cabbage. Put the tomatoes and cabbage in some pot and pour them with water until they are covered. Allow the mixture to boil and then lower the heat and simmer until the vegetables become tender. Add fresh or dried herbs and season to taste.
