how could i lose 10 pounds in a month!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?

I don't know how old you are or the sort of food you eat. I also don't know how active you are or HOW overweight you really are....but.... when I was young (in my teens/early twenties) I could lose 15 pounds in two weeks by consuming about 600-800 healthy calories a day. I do NOT recommend this for long-term....first of all....when I try to do this now....my body goes into "starvation" mode and I not only DON'T lose a lot....but, when I go off this "diet" I put more weight on. But...if you want to try it, here's an example of what I would eat.

Breakfast: 1 hard boiled egg

1 peach or nectarine (or some similar fruit--this time

of year peaches and nectarines are scarce!)

OR

1 slice wheat or whole grain toast

OR 1 Thomas' Light Multi-grain English muffin

1 slice cheese (cheddar, swiss or muenster) melted

LUNCH: 1/2 cantaloupe

1 scoop cottage cheese (maybe 1/2 - 2/3 cup)

OR

1 burger patty (NO BUN)

lettuce, tomato (no salad dressing)

DINNER skinless, boneless chicken breast - grilled or baked

(not fried)

green vegetable of your choice with NO butter or

margarine (broccoli, green beans, zucchini)

salad (lettuce, tomato, cucumber, green pepper, onion)

make your own dressing: 2 TBS olive oil

2 TBS lemon juice

2 TBS red wine vinegar

1 clove garlic minced

1 tsp honey

OR

substitute broiled or baked fish or 1 lean pork chop

for chicken....rest is the same. (You can put

a tsp olive oil on or spray PAM in skillet to cook

and you could marinate any of the above --

chicken, fish or pork -- in the salad dressing or

a no-cal (or VERY LOW CALORIE) marinade to

give flavor and moisture--also, use any seasonings

you like--I use garlic and minced onion or Mrs.

Dash.)

If you have to have a snack at night, have an apple or an orange. If you need a mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack, eat a banana or just 8 almonds or walnuts.

Drink a LOT of water between meals. Do NOT drink diet soda!! You can drink coffee or tea or iced coffee or iced tea...but water is IMPORTANT in addition to or instead of coffee or tea.

If you don't exercise now, just walk for 30 minutes a day most days.

These are my suggestions. The food is healthy...but it's minimal calories. Good luck..and DON'T MAKE YOURSELF SICK!!

Breakfast: Cook 9-grain cereal (from health food store) in water with rolled oats and wheat bran. Make a big pot of it on weekends and nuke 1/2 cup each morning. Add low fat milk or yogurt, banana, walnuts and berries. Drink hot Ovaltine. Breakfast should be your largest meal of the day to raise blood sugar level which falls during the night.

Lunch: Egg, tuna or turkey ½ sandwich on whole grain bread with bean or alfalfa sprouts, yogurt, fresh fruit. If you had meat loaf for dinner, bring a meat loaf sandwich on whole grain bread (NO mayo). On cold days, a squatty thermos of hot chili, split peas with ham, or beef stew.

Snacks: Fresh (not canned) fruit: banana, orange, apple, kiwi, grapes, peach, nectarine, cherries, pineapple. No chips and nothing ever from a vending machine.

Dinner: salad with white meat chicken and fresh (not canned) veggies: tomatoes, 2 kinds of lettuce, 2 kinds of shredded cabbage, shredded or sliced carrots, alfalfa or bean sprouts, zucchini, green or red peppers, hard boiled eggs, brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, tofu, cottage cheese...Instead of dressing, squeeze 1/4 tomato over it.

Or homemade bean/vegetable soups; great way to recycle leftovers.

Or grilled fish with steamed veggies.

Or omelet: In blender, whip together eggs, tofu, cottage cheese, onions, garlic powder. Cook with mushrooms, chopped tomatoes and green or red peppers.

Foods to avoid: junk food, fast foods, pastries, desserts, sugar, salty foods, syrup (even canned fruit in syrup), peanut butter, fat/grease (pork, wieners, chops, bacon, salami, pizza, chips, fries), pasta, potatoes, white bread, rice, canned veggies, ice cream, soda, chips. And of course no tobacco or alcohol in any form. Both of those add wrinkles and destroy your brain. No oil except olive and mac nut. Coffee also rots your brain.

To keep your skin clear, drink water. Veg. juice is good too. But not canned juice (too much sugar.)

Join a gym; they have all the equipment and staff to show you how to use it to get the look you want to achieve. Much cheaper than buying your own equipment. Go hiking, biking, jogging, bowling, swimming, rowing, jump rope, play tennis, badminton, volleyball, soccer, jumping jacks, lift weights, trampoline? To tone your tummy, do sit ups, push ups, pull ups, leg lifts, butt raises and crunches.

If you lack energy, take Super B complex. Try appetite suppressants.

=How much is a stone? 10 lbs? If so, no, that's too short a time. A normal weight loss is about

10 lbs per month. You need a good combination of diet and exercise. A good plan would be:

Breakfast: low fat milk on cooked 9-grain cereal (from health food store), mixed with cooked oatmeal and wheat bran. Add some nuts and berries. Drink hot Ovaltine.

Lunch: Egg, tuna or turkey sandwich on whole grain bread with bean or alfalfa sprouts and yogurt w/fruit. If you had meat loaf for dinner, bring a meat loaf sandwich (NO mayo). On cold days, a squatty thermos of hot chili, split peas with ham or beef stew.

Snacks: Fresh (not canned) fruit: banana, orange, apple, kiwi, grapes, peach, nectarine, cherries, pineapple. No chips and nothing ever from a vending machine.

Dinner: salad with white meat chicken and fresh (not canned) veggies: tomatoes, 2 kinds of lettuce, 2 kinds of shredded cabbage, shredded or sliced carrots, alfalfa or bean sprouts, zucchini, hard boiled eggs, brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, tofu, cottage cheese...
