How To Lose 10 Pounds Overnight

You can lose 10 pounds almost overnight. Most people retain 5-7 pounds of water due to high-sodium foods and beverages. The sodium, or salt, causes water to collect in the body. The average American diet also lacks dietary fiber, which promotes intestinal health.

How To Lose 10 Pounds Overnight

You can rid your body of excess buildup and water and lose 10 pounds overnight. By continuing these simple tips, you can keep the 10 pounds off and lose more.

Things You'll Need
Ground flaxseed
Measuring tablespoon

Consume 64 ounces of sodium-free liquid.
Most people don’t drink enough water. The rule of thumb is 64 ounces each day. Individual needs vary due to fitness or illness, so drink more if you need to. Water itself is a diuretic; the water you drink helps the body shed the water it stores.

"Water flushes toxins out of vital organs, carries nutrients to your cells, and provides a moist environment for ear, nose and throat tissues.”

Eat 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed.
Flax is an excellent form of soluble and insoluble fiber. The soluble fiber binds with fat, preventing absorption, and insoluble fiber moves bulk through the intestines. Ground flaxseed is simpler to eat than flaxseeds, and is more productive than flax oil. You can mix the daily amount of flax with honey. Spread it on toast, instead of butter. Or you can add it to a salad, soup or vegetables.

Walk for 20 minutes.
Take a short walk each day. Time walking from the parking lot to the store or office building counts. Walking increases blood flow and helps to speed up the digestive process.

Avoid fast food and soda.
During this time, don't eat anything that is difficult to digest and filled with fat and sodium. Your goal is to lose 10 pounds overnight.

Exercise for 20-30 minutes.
To increase the weight-loss process, add a simple exercise program to your daily routine. Make time for 20-30 minutes of aerobics, or toning movements, and use free weights.

The added exercise will help continue weight loss and give you more energy.
