Featured Book Review: How to Lose 10 Pounds in a Week
Jenny Perry (Author)
How to Lose 10 Pounds in a Week claims that by following this specialized diet, exercise and detox plan, one can quickly lose 10 pounds in a week. The author states that by alternating meals with soup, detox drinks, fruits and vegetables, incorporating daily exercise and drinking plenty of water, the body will rid itself of toxins and shock the system thus allowing for a significant weight loss in a very short amount of time.
Day 1: Here the reader is given a grocery list, directed to start a sleep log and provided with the rules, if you will, around allowed foods, which are fruits (any kind but bananas) and soup. (recipe provided)
Day 2: Detox begins. No fruits allowed on this day, but vegetables are added and of course soup.
Day 3: Exercise is introduced (30 minutes is recommended) and fruits may once again be consumed along with the vegetables and soup.
Day 4: Here the author explains that the goal of day four is to maintain what the reader has lost so far as well as addressing how he or she feels physically. This is also the last day for detoxing. Fruits, vegetables and exercise are eliminated today making soup and the detox concoction the dieters main staples.
Day 5: The halfway mark. Bananas and skim milk have been added, no vegetables or other fruits, and you guessed it, soup continues to be the main dish. The reader is encouraged to consume up to eight bananas on the premise that energy is going to be needed for the increased exercise today.
Day 6: Meat has been added to the menu, skinless chicken, and there is no limit to quantity. However, fruits are out. (vegetables are still allowed)
Day 7: Final day of the program and weigh in. Exercise remains constant today. Brown rice and bread are added and mental wellbeing is touched on.
Anyone looking to lose weight quickly, and ten pounds is nothing to shake a stick at, this program will do the trick. This is not an easy way to drop ten pounds and I would even go as far to say most who attempt it will fail.
But those who can stay true to the regimen will find the book is very easy to follow, directions are clear and recipes flavorful. The author has added helpful links and techniques as well as carefully stressing to his audience that this is not a long-term option, encouraging his readers to plan a maintenance diet. In short, How to Lose 10 Pounds in a Week works for those who can handle its restrictiveness and are disciplined enough to follow through the plan.
