    To lose 10 pounds is doable, but you really should be more concerned about body fat. Cardio is a good way to remove the weight, however, remember the principle, "energy in, energy out." Whatever you eat that day you must burn off those calories. My advice is to moderate or remove sweets from you diet. Eat smaller portions, half meals, about 4-5 times a day. Drink lots of water. Take a brisk walk 30 minutes every day. This should help.

    1) Create a food diary - write down everything you eat with calories. You need to track your intake accurately. Don't bother lying to yourself.
    2) Increase your exercise. If this is a short term thing, cardio will be best as ChuckG says as it burns calories quicker. If it's more long term, then weights are essential as they build more muscle than carido and increase ongoing metabolic rate.
    3) Find out your basic calorie requirements for a day - google that phrase and there are plenty of calculators out there.
    4) Create a calorie deficit. That is, burn more calories than you consume so that your body has to use your fat stores. A pound of fat is roughly 3,500 (K)calories, so you need to be eating roughly 8,700 less calories in a week than you are burning to lose 2.5 pounds a week.

    It is possible, but it's a very high target (unless it's your first 10 pounds you want to lose, which do come off easier).

    Don't crash diet - ie eat less than 1,200 calories a day if you are woman.

    It's medically foolish, and it won't work. Your body will not just take energy from fat, it will take it from your muscles, which it finds easier to convert to energy, and so you will actually be doing more harm than good.

    WOW! Great question and you're getting really excellent answers here.

    Personally, this is what worked for me:

    - Cardio exercise for 20-30 minutes a day.
    - Protein shakes.
    - No sweets and no salt.
    - Lots and lots of veggies and fruits.
    - Deep breathing and meditation.

    When I lost 10 pounds, I tried to go into muscle toning but I was so lazy sad Would recommend toning after losing weight.

    Cardio and protein. try to make sure you consume more protein than carbs, a trick i learned from a victorias secret model during an interview.. and when you have a craving at night for something to eat, drink a protein shake with water..not milk. its nasty yes, but it works like a charm!! The reason is protein doesnt turn into ft, in fact it helps replenish the muscles and helps them build back up after you tear them down during a workout. So workouts plus protein equals faster muscle building which equals quicker fat loss!!!!  Make sure you eat small portions too. I substituded all of my "meals" for either a cup of greek yogurt (excellent source of protein), a protein shake, or turkey. Try to only drink water, if you cant like me, drink diet green tea or make your own green tea and sweeten it with splenda, also make your tea with splenda as well. You can buy diet cranberry juice or grapefruit juice that literally sheds water weight overnight. well these are all ,y secrets, i hope they work for you.
