In brief: May be lean...

If your percent body fat is very low, you will have to go low calorie and/or expend more.
If you have fat to lose, go without carbs for the next two weeks. Even then, 10 lbs in two weeks...It will be very hard or impossible. Please do not let yourself use diuretics to dehydrate yourself, or use purgatives to lose weight. Some coaches will encourage this. My coach in college did!@!
