Dr. Travis Stork from the TV show "The Doctors" has a book out called "The Lean Belly Prescription", and it includes tips on how to lose weight in just ten seconds. Obviously, you won't actually get THINNER in ten seconds. They're just weight-loss STRATEGIES that take ten seconds or less. Here are the top four.
#1.) Ruin Your Appetite. Drinking two glasses of water before a meal makes you feel full, and it can reduce the number of calories you eat by up to 20%. You don't have to chug, but unless you're a horse, you probably won't drink two glasses in ten seconds. Actually, you can accomplish the same thing if you have just one glass of water, then start with a cup of broth-based soup, like miso, minestrone, or chicken noodle.
#2.) Sign Up for a 5K Race. According to a study at the University of Michigan, you're more likely to maintain an exercise program if you find more reasons to work out than just weight loss.
#3.) Eat Chile Peppers. Capsaicin is the stuff in chilies that makes them hot. And according to a recent study, it also increases your metabolism. If you eat just one tablespoon of chopped red or green chilies, it can boost your metabolism by up to 23%.
#4.) Eliminate Added Sugar. According to a survey done by the USDA, the average American eats about 20 teaspoons of added sugar a day, which translates to about 320 empty calories. Most of that sugar comes in the form of soda, baked goods, breakfast cereal, candy, and fruit drinks.
