50 Ways To Lose 10 Pounds  of weight - daily and healthy weight loss guide

Losing weight doesn't have to be so hard. Here are 50 easy ways to reach your goal.

1. Water yourself

Research shows that dieters who guzzle plenty of H2O lose more weight than those who don't. Keep things interesting with these 25 slimming sassy water recipes

2. Halve at it

Divide your normal portion by two and save the rest for later. You're likely to feel full on less food than you think.

3. Go meatless

In general, vegetarians have lower body weights than their meat-eating peers. Follow their lead—at least until you drop a few pounds. (Check out these vegetarian dishes that blast belly fat to get started.)

4. Go vegan

Vegetarianism not helping you lose? Take it to the next level by swearing off eggs and dairy, too. Cheese can be a diet killer. (See why one foodie became a part-time vegan—and you can, too.)

5. Get fresh

Eliminate packaged foods and eat only fresh ingredients you've prepared. No bags, boxes, cans, or cartons allowed. (Want to go organic but not sure where to start? Download our Organic Fruits and Veggies Shopping Guide to learn which items you should always buy organic.)

6. Diet 2 days a week

If you can't stick to a program all the time, try slashing your calories to 650 a day just two days a week and eating normally the other days. One study suggests this offers protection from breast cancer as well as assistance with weight loss.

7. Not so sweet

Everyone knows sugar isn't healthy, but when you start reading labels, you find it in unexpected places, like pasta sauce and frozen entrées. Cutting the sugar out of your diet will mean healthier meals overall. (Check out these sneaky places hidden sugars lurk.)

8. Cut the flour

The short-term elimination of floury foods like white bread and pastries can efficiently kick-start your weight loss plan.

10. Walk 2 minutes out of every 30

Short walking breaks add up to weight loss. Plain and simple.

11. Fidget more
Studies show that fidgety types burn significantly more calories than their stationary peers. So go ahead: Tap that foot, drum those fingers, and totally shake those knee.

12. Sleep it off

Research shows that those who don't get enough shut-eye eat more and reach for more fattening grub than people who get plenty of rest. (Trouble snoozing? Here's how to get you best night's sleep—ever.)

13. Get it on

Thirty minutes of s*x burns at least 60 calories for a 150-pound woman. Keep things fresh with these 11 new s*x positions.

14. Eat at home

Meals eaten away from home have 134 more calories, on average. Try these 5 simple recipes made with clean, wholesome ingredients.

15. Start a blog

The weight loss blog is practically a literary genre. Start one, and you aren't just losing for yourself. Your public needs you.

16. Tweet your weight

Some call it the #humiliation diet, but many credit the accountability for their weight loss success. Use the hashtag #tweetyourweight. Tell us about your weight loss and use @PreventionMag!

Eating one grapefruit daily helped 58% of subjects to lose weight, according to research.
