Today, I am happy to report I lost another 2 pounds. I was hungry most of the day. Crazy hungry a couple of times. Today, I began to focus on eating a healthier diet, which consisted of:

  • 26 different vitamins and nutraceutical supplements. Tomorrow, I will detail what supplements I am taking each day.
  • Two protein drinks, each with 25 grams of protein in 16 ounces of almond milk. I really enjoy these. The almond milk tastes good, has fewer calories, and is less expensive than organic milk.
  • 1/2 banana, 1/2 apple, and one Nature Valley Sweet & Salty Peanut Bar
  • 2 cups of spinach, 1 pear, 2 tbsp of organic yogurt, 1/2 avocado, 1/2 cup of almond milk, 1 tbsp of chia seeds, and about 10 ice cubes liquified with a high-speed blender. This 16 oz drink is very nutritional and tastes good. I don’t like spinach, but I’ve discovered that using a blender to liquify some of those awful-tasting veggies and mixing in some other things can convert them into very tasty smoothies. My blender has become my secret weight loss weapon!
  • 1/4 cup of raw oatmeal, 1/4 cup of almonds, 1/4 cup of apricots, and 1/4 cup of raspberries. I boiled the oatmeal and sprinkled the fruit & nuts on top.
  • My crazy splurge of the day… 1 – 12 oz can of Diet Pepsi and a six-pack of Oreo cookies, which tasted heavenly.

OK, that’s not a lot of food to eat, but it was enough. I didn’t die, my energy level was good, and I wasn’t THAT hungry. Remember, I am not suggesting you follow my approach. My reason in sharing how I’m going to lose 10 pounds in 10 days is to hopefully inspire you to realize it can be done successfully. You might want to create your own way of doing it. I am not a role model. I’m just a middle-aged guy who’s eaten a few too many Big Macs sitting at my desk. While I have made a lot of long-term progress in my weight-loss goals, I felt I needed something to shock my system into losing a quick 10 pounds. Evidently, many of you feel the same way. I have been very surprised at how many emails I have received from my friends and followers who have said they’re going to try to lose 10 pounds, too.


Someone asked me if my rapid weight-loss plan had a name. Hmmm… I hadn’t thought of that, so I’ve decided to call it the “Get Mad at The Fat” rapid weight-loss plan. Sometimes, when you have a difficult ‘problem’ you’re facing that is tough to overcome, it helps to get mad. The Bible calls that kind of anger “righteous indignation,” and it can give you the energy and determination to push forward positively. So when I feel those hunger pains causing my stomach to growl loudly, I blame it on my fat. I get mad at my fat and say to myself: “Fat…I’m sick and tired of you slowing me down and costing me money. Get lost!!”

So… if you’re going to get mad today, make it a righteous anger, and why not try getting mad at your fat?
