low carbs, low fats (gotta know what fats are good and bad), increase your fiber and protein, Do Cardio and lift.
LOL seems healthy What are you going to suggest next, the HCG diet?

Make a life style change and it will come to you. Cardio is better in the morning, your metabolism will be higher while you are active for the rest of the day. Cardio, you need to do HIIT and just follow the rule of calories in and calories out. Get a tracking app for your phone.

Hi Ragingpanda,
Yes losing 10-15 lbs in 2 months is realistic goal and losing 8 lbs in a month is safe weight to lose. Break your meals in 5/6 small meals and add fruits and vegetables more in your daliy meals. Drink more water than routine and avoid beverages, soda and even diet soda. Avoid eating late and have enough sleep of 7/8 hours a day.

of course your body will be craving for sugar and food after your work out but you have to be disciplined and avoid too much fat food & sugar .
don't starve yourself neither in the first days as the day you'll be reeating normally your body will jump on all the food you give it and will stock it as a prevention in case you starve it again in the future .

losing 15 lbs in 2 months is possible but requires discipline . key is regular cardio work out ( doesn't have to be heavy load , gentle cardio is also fine ) and balanced diet ( avoid fat , sugar , none total elimination but reasonable amount ) and you'll be fine in 2 months
Good advise

You can do 2-3 lbs a week if you eat healthy, count calories and be below 1800 for a guy and do cardio+resistance training 5 times a week. In 2 months you'll look a lot better!

Once a diet doctor told me use this formula to find the required daily calorie which will lead to loosing 2-3 lb a week:

[30*(your weight in lb)/2.2]-(1000 to 1200)
so for example your weight is 220 lb:
(30*220/2.2)-(1000 to 1200)= 1800 to 2000 cal/day

Plus have a cheat day every 10-12 days. That results in more fat loss as your body don't get used to low calorie diet and will have its regular metabolism.

Thanks for all the advice guys, really appreciate it. I did manage to lose 15lbs in 2 months by doing cardio first thing in the morning on a empty stomach 5 times a week, and eating smaller proportioned meals and avoiding the unnecessary stuff throughout the day. It wasn't hard, but it took dedication to 'start' the regime. There is definitely some excellent advice here for anyone who has a quick goal of losing some weight in a matter of months.

Yes cardio is the best for the weight loss purposes.
You should continue your cardio workout, you will get your ideal weight very soon if you do your cardio workouts regularly for the proper time period.

When i'm in a cutting phase, I eat my metabolic rate in calories (around 1800 calories) and just work out. Long periods of Low intensity Cardio in the morning, lift at night. Fat comes right off and the slow cardio minimalizes the muscle loss.

The worst part is actually doing slow cardio. Theres nothing worse than 1-1.5 hours and only going like 4-6 miles. But the fat comes out. Lifting will give you a metabolic boost while you're recovering that'll burn calories/fat passively, provided you worked hard enough and went to failure. Lifting helps you lose weight very well, contrary to a lot of popular misconceptions.

Carb starving yourself is never in the cards for me. I dropped 52 lbs in a year and after two years I've kept it off, while putting on lean mass and lowering my body fat % to single digits. All this without cutting out complex carbs (granted i don't eat a ton of it, everything in moderation).

Others swear by the Keto Diet (google it, it definitely works). I've tried it, and it definitely gets you shredded up (much like paleo), but I can't give up carbs haha. If you really must do it (I had to try it, since it nets serious results), let yourself off of it lightly and you'll still maintain shape.

Granted, i still drink heavily and eat badly on weekends, but I pay for it on monday and tuesday when my diet is ultra strict and i have to put in extra time on treadmills and at the gym. Worth it for the good times though =)

To lose fat:

1) Cardio (around 30 minutes a day)
2) Eat less than usual
3) Move more
4) Avoid sugars and microwavable foods (probably the hardest for most people including myself)
5) Drink only water but REGULAR coffee is still fine (not the crappachino shit from Starbucks)
6) Go to the gym and lift weights but don't exert yourself as you probably aren't a bodybuilder (this will get you toned as being skinny is almost as ugly as being obese)

It's going to be hard for the first two weeks but after that this regimen becomes a habit and you'll look forward to it, especially after seeing the initial fat loss.

ragingpanda, I agree to the suggestions of borabora which is submitted here.With all of its you must walk daily half an hour in the morning and half an hour in evening which would be helpful to loose your weight and also for your body fitness. But walking should be fast.

as everyone has said...yes it is possible.

is it going to be fun? HELL NO. it really will test the strength of your patience, it will drive you mad and toy with your anger emotions.

i lost 20lbs in about 3 months....an additional 5lbs a month later. took a lot of dedication. eating correctly, working out.

drink lots of water. eat a few times a day (small portions)....this will jump start your metabolism. be weary of your caloric intake. avoid alcohol!

load up your phone with lots of tv shows and movies for your cardio workouts...you're going to be spending lots of time on those machines.

Old ass thread, but it's funny to see someone say eat ZERO carbs, then add baked sweet potatoes into their diet. WTF do you think a sweet potato is, all protein?

Losing 10-15 pounds in 2 months is not unreasonable.
Just on detoxicng alone, I lost 5lbs over 7 days. (Just sucks as that detox stuff makes you run to the washroom all the time :P )

Your 6ft and 195??? Why would you want to lose weight, you are not close to fat, unless you are really flabby and have little muscle tone?

Try:
cardio
PGCL
Clenbuterol
get you body into ketosis and eat lots of protein

I think that 1500 calories / day is the starvation diet . a 180 lbs man burns 2000 calories a day without effort...
During the summer I went from 215 to 201 in 10 days eating nothing but the things that came in the Nutrisystem trial. 5 days worth of meals costs $45 at Wal-Mart and I bought two packs of them and did the diet. I was super strict about following it but it was only giving me around 900 calories/day. I was losing about 3000 calories/day so obviously I was in deep caloric deficit. It worked really quickly though and I've never gone above 203 lbs even though I stopped the diet after 10 days. It completely changed me and I eat whatever I want now.

Tomorrow I'm starting a low-carb diet as part of my cutting phase and I'm hoping to drop down to 14% body fat and 180 lbs by December. I'm 5'11 and hit the gym pretty often doing dead-lifts, squats and all those good ones that constantly tear down my muscle fibers. Getting aesthetic is hard work!

Lol. It's really hard to eat 0 carbs but it is possible to eat <10 grams/day. I'd eat: lean chicken, fish, tuna, asparagus, celery, broccoli for a meal portion and nuts and string cheese for snacks. If you eat only these foods for a month you'll get very lean. Of course I'd exercise and take whey protein to get the muscle mass as well.

Its actually real simple. All you have to do is eat the way humans did 10,000 years ago. Our bodies haven't changed since then but the food and amount of times we eat sure have. Our bodies are built to suck the most amount of calories out of any food. Therefore if you eat like modern human beings, you will never loose weight. Don't listen to the government food pyramid schemes and 6 small meals a day crap. You have to fast regularly to naturally keep the digestive system clean and healthy.

I'm currently consuming 1300 cal/day, low carb at that and it's not that bad actually. I'm eating 5 times a day just small portions. Tomorrow marks one week on this plan and I'm already down 5lbs without exercising at all.

So far greater results. Can't wait until I begin to add daily workout in there too. My overall goal is to get to 150lbs. I'm 193 now!

Burn more calories than you consume = loss of weight.

And HIIT > Regular Cardio ANYDAY. But with right diet and regular weight training, you don't necessarily need any cardio unless you are looking out for your cardiovascular health.


Simply put, that's all it takes to lose weight. Keeping a healthy nutriment intake is essential trough out a weight loss routine as well.

I went hardcore a few years ago and lost 24 lb. in 4 weeks. Wasn't depriving myself from food, just eating very healthy on a tight, practically carb free schedule and working out on a daily basis.

After that first "cleansing" phase I went on to lose a total of 55 lb. over 12 weeks.
