Question: I'm trying to lose a good 20-25 pounds over the next two months. I work out for 30 minutes a day and eat a 3 course meal with low calorie snacks in between. Is this reasonable? I'm 5'8 and I weight 150 pounds. I want to make sure I'm being healthy about this, because that's more important to me. Thanks in advance!

Along with healthy diet and REGULAR intense exercise, a reasonable weight loss regimen would healthily shed between 2-5 lbs a week, not counting plateaus or binges. To increase your loss, try eating six smaller meals per day. Drink water and gatorade regularly. 15-30 minutes of low-high intensity cardio 5 days a week (light jogs, metered sprints). Adding calisthenics is icing on the cake (push ups, sit ups, jumping jacks, etc). Start small--20 or so of each type before bed and first thing in the morning.

in the morning, i suggest cheerios. They are simple and fairly healthy. Lunch something like a salad will be good, a ham sandwich is also good, make sure to keep the sandwich fairly boring maybe some roast beef,lettuce and mustard. dinner i usually eat grilled chicken salad. im not a nutritionist but i want to help you so that's why food choice isn't my strong point. you cant give up, it will be very very hard to lose weight. Tai Chi is an old Chinese workout that is one of the most effective workouts you will ever do. it may seem simple and not feel like much but 3 hours will burn up to around 700 calories(for your weight). It will build up muscle and make you mentally and physically stronger, i highly highly HIGHLY recommend it. If you want to try it at home first, there is a beginners system that will teach you the basics of taichi, and it is very good. ill give you a link to it on amazon, but i know for fact target sells them. GOOD LUCK! http://www.amazon.com/Gaiam-Tai-Chi-Beginner-Kit/dp/B000BK7F48/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1325716528&sr=8-1 stay away from pastas, bread(sandwiches are ok), no sweets like ice cream, no pop will also help you lose weight, drink lots of water, no fast food what so ever, if you want things to snack on get baked chips, and fruits.

A normal weight loss is anywhere from 1 - 3 lbs. a week. This is so you keep the weight off & there's no yo yo dieting. So, in 2 months : 8 - 24 lbs. It can be done. ( At 5'8" a normal weight is 140 lbs)

20 lbs. However, you are now not going to lose that so much with that nutrition - it is NOT healthful. You will have to be getting no less than 1200 energy. I've additionally visible one thousand, however that is now not what I was once taught. however 999 energy and beneath is simply NOT ample power for you for the period of the day. It's going to reduce to rubble your metabolism. EDIT: &oohyeah, relating to weight reduction like this, you have to believe your reflect greater than the dimensions. It's viable you'll be able to come to be hanging muscle weight which DOES weigh greater than fats. &at your peak, you sound lovely thin ample. I do not feel you will have to lose greater than 10 lbs.

You don't have to actually exercise to lose weight, though you'll love yourself for it if you do because you won't have to worry about lose skin, poor muscle mass, the agonizing wait for weight loss, etc. Bottom line is a healthy diet will get you to a certain point. Your body burns about 1500 cal a day minimum just by existing (breathing, heart beating, speaking, walking from here to the fridge or the restroom, etc). So, if you eat a very vitamin rich diet (lots of vegetables, fruits, and lean protein) you can lose weight without exercising. If you do exercise, you'll add in muscle tone, more weight loss, and energy. So, when you stop exercising, if you eat more than your BMR (google it) then you will gain, otherwise, no, you won't gain it back. BUT, your body will shift the weight around and you won't have as much lean muscle mass nor will your weight be in the areas you want it to be at. Yea, that's right, its going for your hips and your butt and your stomach because that's where nature intends for it to be (if you are a girl?) because its the 'reserve areas' for child bearing.
