Dehydration is one of the main reasons of several diseases and also weight gain because it slows down your metabolism. I think, having 4-5 liters of water is too much for most of us, but have at least 2.5-3 liters.

2. Drink Green Tea
Green tea is a powerful herb that holds a lot of useful components that lower the risk of various diseases. Also, it increases your metabolism and contains no calories.
3. Hot Water with Lemon And Honey
Have this nutritious drink for the empty stomach in the morning to boost your metabolism and cleanse your body.
4. Reduce the Amount of Bad Carbs You Consume
If you like eating foods that are packed with tons of sugar and other bad carbs, get rid of them since they are just empty calories. Instead, have complex carbs that can be found in whole grains.
5. Eat More Protein
Protein is the building nutrient of the muscles, but also increases the metabolic rate of your body. Also, protein rich foods fill your tummy faster and make satisfied longer so that you will eat less.
6. Eat More Dietary Fiber
Most of us do not have enough fiber daily. However, the right level of fiber intake daily drastically reduces the risk of several diseases. Also, fiber-rich foods, such as fruits and veggies, fill you quickly, making you satisfied longer so that you will do not eat so much.

7. No Junk Food
I think I do not tell you secret with that. Junk foods like chips, pizza, etc. have no nutritional value. They are just packed with unhealthy ingredients, fat, and sugar.
Just by following the dieting tips above, without exercise, you will lose weight in 10 days for sure. But if you want to get even better results, exercise! Even 30-45 minutes walking can help you a lot to burn some extra calories.
9. Avoid Rice, Sugar, And Salt
10. Have Smaller Portions
You can lose weight if your body burns more calories than it gets (calorie deficit). By consuming less food with each meal, you can take in fewer calories. So, have smaller portions. A useful trick for that is to use smaller plates.
11. Don’t Skip Your Meals
If you have ever skipped your meals, you know because of the hunger, we usually eat far more on the next. That is bad because we are more willing to take in a lot of calories at once, and that slows the metabolic rate as well.
12. Have More Fruits & Vegetables
Veggies and fruits are packed with a lot of beneficial nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, fiber, and water. Usually, they are low in calories, especially greens. So, for the next 10 days have them 2-3 times a day.

13. Law Calorie Snacking
Between the main meals, you can have snacks but just a small portion of healthy foods like an apple, little nuts, etc.,
14. Have 3 Meals a Day
“Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar.” For me, this old advice has been working really well. Your last meal should be 2-3 hours before going to bed. Have a dinner that is packed with protein and veggies, but be careful with the portion.
15. Control Your Food Craving
It is hard, I know, but you must be tough if you want to lose weight in 10 days.
16. Sleep Enough
Being tired because of little sleep is one of the main reasons why we crave for something. The body wants to compensate itself somehow, and the easiest way is to eat something.

17. Get Prepared for Your Diet Plan
Make a shopping list to buy the healthy foods you eat and cook from. When you go shopping, only buy those things that you will need, and no junk.
18. Be in the Sun
Being outside in the sun is an easy and natural way to reduce stress. The less stressful you are, the lower your cortisol level, and the less you want to eat.
19. Check Your Weight
It does not work for me, but may be for you. If you see you have already dropped 1-2 pounds that may help to keep going on.
20. Keep Going On
Determine yourself and do not give up. Imagine yourself looking better after 10 days.
Why we typically fail?
- Lack of self-control
- Slow metabolism
- Unhealthy foods
- No exercising
So, if you are searching for the questions how to lose weight in 10 days without dieting, these tips are not for you. Your nutrition is the key factor for weight loss, but you should not forget about exercising as well. They go hand in hand.
