Alright, good that you didn't say "no one answer saying to diet or exercise, because I'm not into that" because that WILL be necessary for real and healthy weight loss. Look, there's no "quick and easy" way otherwise there wouldn't be so many overweight people in the world. I'm sorry, it's just the truth. The only real way to lose weight is to burn more calories than you consume. That's it. At a weight of 209, you should be able to lose 3 to 4 pounds a week for the first few weeks, but as you get skinnier, you lose weight more slowly to a steady 1 to 2 pounds. I'd say if you work hard and dedicate yourself, you can drop to 195 in a month. However, you'll NEED to eat healthier to lose weight the quickest. While it is possible to lose weight with junk food, healthy food has less calories for the same amount, and eating crap will make you feel like crap and in turn affect your exercise. I'm not talking about super strict dieting, but rather choose one day out of the week where you can eat one meal that's sort of cheating. Don't overdue it though. Anyways, you need to count calories and do cardio. Your body burns calories daily just doing its daily functions--I'm estimating at your weight, you burn 2000 calories a day just being alive. Therefore, you should consume 200-500 calories less than that. If you eat too little, it will backfire and your body will go into "starvation mode" and you'll gain all of the weight you lose back fast, trust me. If you want to be more precise, look up the amount of calories you would burn online. So, try to avoid too many pastas and carbs, especially if it's at the end of the day. It's okay to eat some, as they will provide you with energy for exercise, but if your carbs are unused they turn into fat. Exercise should consist of mainly cardio and toning workouts--running, jump rope, swimming, biking, walking and pushups, pullups, leg lifts and situps if you want to tone a bit (you won't gain much muscle like that though you should slim down a bit before you try and bulk up some). I lost 20 pounds over the course of 3 months, I ran for 20 mins 4 times a week and ate a planned out diet, so imagine if I ran 5 times a week for 30 minutes? The rate at which you lose is entirely up to you, but you need to realize it isn't quick and easy. I'm guessing it would take you 5 months if you did what I did, but don't let the end game discourage you. You can do it in 3 if you work super hard. No thinking, "just one more" or "i'll start eating healthy after this" NO. Alright, best of luck.
