Diet pills and cleanses are not very effective long-term and they can have dangerous side effects. Their safety and effectiveness are not well-researched, so therefore I would not recommend any diet pills or cleanses. Ten pounds in one month may not be feasible, especially to keep it off long-term, but you can make some changes to your eating and activity habits and be well on your way to that ten pounds.

The best way to safely lose weight and keep it off long-term is by making changes to your eating and physical activity. If you can make small changes in your lifestyle habits, you will lose weight and keep it off long-term. You will also enjoy better health and wellness.

To learn your personal recommended amount of calories, you can visit the Supertracker website at https://www.supertracker.usda.gov/ which is part of the United States Dept of Agriculture and links from the MyPlate website. Here, you can enter your current weight, activity level, and goal weight. Supertracker will give you information on how many calories you need daily, plus how much physical activity. There is also weight management information on the website. You can also track what you are eating and your physical activity on the Supertracker website. An app, like MyFitnessPal, is also a good way to track your calories and activity after you know your recommended amount of calories.

Other helpful tips to lose weight include: cutting back on your portions, filling up on fruits and vegetables, drinking plenty of water, cutting back or eliminating sugary drinks, getting physical activity daily, cutting back on fast food, or eating slowly.

Thanks for your question!
