Whether it’s trying to slim down for an important event, to lose the last of the baby weight, or to finally just get in shape, it sure seems like most folks would like to lose 10 pounds – and fast.
Enter Jackie Warner, the no-nonsense fitness trainer from Bravo’s “Workout” and “Thintervention,” who has helped numerous celebrities get red carpet-ready in no time. In her latest book, “10 Pounds in 10 Days: The Secret Celebrity Program for Losing Weight Fast” (Grand Central Publishing, 2012), Warner shares three of her tried-and-true “10 x 10” workouts – follow one to get gorgeous before that wedding or high school reunion, or, if you’ve got more weight to waste, do all three for 30 days of fat burning and toning. Each routine comes with an eating plan starring nutrient-dense foods (think grapefruit’s naringin, plain oatmeal’s slow-digesting carbs and whole eggs’ powerhouse protein and lecithin) that Warner says are fantastic for weight-loss and balancing the important fitness hormones HGH, testosterone and progesterone, but won’t leave you feeling deprived.
Changing a person’s relationship with food is one of the key components of the program, says Warner. “The reality is, anyone can lose 10 pounds, but this plan is meant to help you keep it off.”
Want a taste of the accelerated action? Here, Warner shares six moves from her new book that require nothing more than your bodyweight or simple dumbbells. “They’re all basic movements that speed up your metabolism and have the most total impact on muscle tone,” Warner says. “Together they provide the perfect whole-body workout.”
