How Do I Lose the Last 10 Pounds?

Beachbody's Autumn Calabrese Says Do These 5 Things to Lose Those Last 10 Pounds

By Jenny Sugar, POPSUGAR

If you've recently hit a frustrating weight-loss plateau and you're struggling to lose those last five pounds, extra 10 pounds, or stubborn body fat, it can be challenging. But it is not impossible! Beachbody supertrainer Autumn Calabrese shares her top five tips to lose those stubborn pounds for good.


Push Yourself

Autumn says the first thing to do is to make sure you're pushing as hard as you can in your workouts. "You should always be a little (or a lot) uncomfortable during your workout, meaning it should be challenging you, your heart rate should be up, your muscles should be burning, you should be sweating." If you're not, Autumn suggests increasing the amount of weight you're lifting and/or working out a little longer.


Mix Things Up!

Changing up the workout altogether is also key. Autumn says, "If you've always been a cardio junkie, try switching to weight training for a month or two. If you are doing the exact same workout every time you work out, you will hit a plateau." Try different workout classes and use different equipment. Mix up the order of the exercises you do, the body parts you focus on, the intensity, the reps, and the pace of your workouts.


Dial In Your Nutrition

"While it's fun to eat whatever you want, whenever you want, it's not likely to get you to your final results," Autumn warns. "Timed nutrition combined with portion control and balanced macronutrients is a great way to do this." For balanced macronutrients, Autumn likes a 40/30/30 split, meaning 40 percent healthy carbs, 30 percent lean protein, and 30 percent healthy fats. Timed nutrition refers to eating every two and a half to three hours, spread out throughout the day, with balanced macros at each meal.



Self-care also needs to be a priority when it comes to losing those last few pounds. Autumn says, "That might sound odd, but for all the hard work you are putting in, you also have to allow your body time to recover to see maximum results." Do some relaxing wall yoga, meditate, watch a sunset, read by a fire, sing, dance, or spend time laughing with friends — do something that makes you happy, that you enjoy, every single day, even if it's just for five minutes.


Rest and Recover

Don't forget that getting enough sleep (at least eight hours), drinking plenty of water, foam rolling or massage, Epsom salt baths, and rest days are all a necessity when it comes to caring for your hardworking body and seeing results.
