    unless you develop an eating disorder or get lipo, it won't (and shouldn't happen) that quickly. even fifteen pounds in three months is a fast pace.

    the biggest loser people are also morbidly obese and spend entire days working out in such strenuous environments that everything they do has to be medically monitored because what they're doing to their bodies is actually quite awful. they also starve and dehydrate themselves.

    I've heard many times that if you lose more than 2lbs a week, you'll probably end up losing a lot of muscle too. Minimize muscle loss by lifting weights and eating a lot of protein (about 1 gram per lb of body weight).

    To lose weight, just lower your net calories in a day. Net calories equals the total calories that you consume in a day, minus any activity you do. For example, if I eat 2500 calories today, but run 4 miles and burn 500 calories, then my net calories for the day is 2000. You burn calories by moving around. So, eat less and move more. How much less and how much more?

    You might want to start with a caloric needs calculator. It will estimate how many calories you need in a day based on your size and activity level. They will usually also tell you how many net calories you should get in a day to lose a certain number of pounds in a week. The calculation is based on knowing that 3500 calories = 1 pound. "Lose" 7000 calories in a week either by eating less or moving more (both is best) and you'll lose 2 lbs.

    For example, for my body size and activity level, I need about 2400 calories in a day just to maintain my current body weight. If I get 1400 net calories every day for a week (1000 calorie less than what I need to maintain, everyday), then I'll lose 2 lbs in a week.

    Remember, though, that it's difficult to lose weight and gain muscle at the same time. For that reason, most body builders will go through a "cutting" phase where they cut their weight down by reducing their calories and also workout to preserve muscle. Then, they will go into the "gaining" phase where they raise their calories and continue to lift weights so that they gain muscle. They are careful not to consume too many calories, because that will just be turned into fat. And, you certainly don't want to drop your calories too low, because not only will you lose muscle, but you'll get really tired and cranky and demotivated. Losing 2 lbs a week is pretty safe.

    If you are 6' 1" you do not need to lose 15 pounds.

    Just work on gaining muscle, if anything, and realize that gaining muscle will cause an initial weight gain until your metabolism steps up.

    Fast gains/losses are not a good idea.

    This is a great article that explains the whole process that I wrote above.

    Does it work? Yeah! I lost 15 lbs in the last 7 weeks, and definitely have kept my muscle.

    I'm also using the app called "Myfitnesspal" to track my calories. It's available online too. I love it.

    Drop any/all alcohol, white carbs (sugar, potatoes etc.) eat as much egg whites and fish for protein instead of red meat or even the usual antibiotic tainted chicken. Cardio 30+ minutes a day.

    Any weight you loose will be healthy.

    if you take a bunch of laxatives you should be able to drop 10 lbs in a day. Then just stop eating and the rest should waste away.

    I do it all the time It's a great way to lose pounds before a show.

    I would give this a try:
    Do 10-15 minutes of cardio in the morning, like a light jog, doing jump rope (which is actually pretty intense cardio), or elliptical or treadmill machine.
    Then do about 30 minutes of cardio in the evenings.

    Avoid the 3 fat-packer foods: 1. fatty foods, 2. refined flours, 3. refined sugars (which is hard to do on an american diet, because those foods are pretty much everything we're used to, and makes it hard to turn down).

    Avoid any foods with fat content more than 3 or so grams of fat per serving (just look on the label): which means stay away from cheeses.

    Increase your protein intake to the recommended amount of grams per your current body weight. The more muscle tissue you maintain, the more that muscle burns any excess fat cells.

    The Myfinesspal app and website www.myfitnesspal.com are great! I'm user "flyguyafga" on there. It's great because it gives you little pop-up messages at the end of the day that say "if every day were like today you'd be ___ lbs in 6 weeks" and you connect with your friends on there, too.

    15 pounds in a month is definitely doable and not unhealthy if you do it right. I speak from experience. My weight crept up a little higher than I liked and I dropped 31 pounds in two months.

    My method was to abstain from any alcohol, eat small portions of lean protein and vegetables, drink a protein shake every day, and run five miles a night.

    I went from 216 and 26% body fat to 185 and 15% body fat. It's not easy, but it is worth it.

    One mistake I made in my journey (besides not dramatically reducing my wheat intake) was assuming all running is the same for spare-tire issues. It isn't.

    Climbing up a hill at a 20minute/mile pace will amp your metabolism more than a 6 minute mile. That calorie display on the treadmill knows that.

    I believe the better computers are programmed to recognize a fast run will just burn carbs, not calories. If you want it to read 800 calories, crank the incline.

    You won't be able to avoid building muscle mass from the waist down (glutes, legs). But, what on earth could be wrong with that. icon_cool.gif

    Belemia. Running long distance in winter clothes.

    Honestly the only ways to lose that munch in a month are unhealthy (well... unless you're already in an unhealthy diet regime).

    Carbs are calories. 4 of them per gram to be exact.

    OP, 15 lbs in one month is not good or healthy, you'll eventually gain it all back.

    If you can spend a month doing nothing, just eat once a day, work out everyday, and sleep for at least 50% of the day. You'll lose like 20 lbs

    Easy...stop drinking milk and all forms of dairy for one month. You would be surprised at how much weight you will start to shed.

    Try some running and light gym work outs.
