Easy Ways to Lose 10 Lbs

Each pound of fat is made up of about 3,500 calories. Eating just 50 calories less than you need each day and you’ll lose 5lb in a year without really trying. And if you move just a little bit more each day (50 calories worth of exercise is not hard for anyone to fit in) another 5lbs will disappear.

Each of the following will save or use at least 50 calories (and often a lot more)! Of course if your weight is slowly creeping up with your current habits these changes may just stop the weight gain in its tracks – but they will still mean that you weigh 10lbs less than you would have done had you made no changes. Remember and check with your doctor before you start any diet or exercise program.
