May 25, 2019 / By Elyakim Question:
I'm 6'3", around 235 (I'll know for sure tomorrow at the gym). I'm not stuck on numbers, but I'm guessing I'll need to lose at least 75 lbs before I'm satisfied. My main goals are to lose my broad shoulders and chest. I know that some guys with they were bigger, but that means nothing to me. I really don't care what other people find attractive, and I'm not interested in any of the women who want some big strong man to protect them.
As my pic will demonstrate, I have a very long way to go. As far as diet is concerned, my plan is to stick to low-carb, low-fat, and not to eat until one hour after my stomach starts to rumble. I find a lot of times I eat just as an excuse - because I'm bored or because it's a certain time of day or because I feel like it - and I'm interested to see how much I would eat per day if I only ate when I was really, truly hungry.
I don't have some strict timeline to lose this much weight...I'm presuming it will take me till summer to lose it all. As for exercise, I'm going to stick to only cardio. I'm asking for new running shoes for Christmas since the cheap ones I bought give me blisters if I run too much, so until then, it will be 20 min on the treadmill, 20 on the Stairmaster, and 20 on the elliptical, seven days a week.
Yes, I want to be scrawny, not muscular like most guys do. I don't consider my height or build to be an asset....not that I'm implying I'm really muscular or in good shape now.
? - Thanks for your rude answer....calling someone or their ideas stupid in your first sentence is a great way to get them to listen to you.
If I were bragging about my broad shoulders and chest, why would I be trying to lose them? I don't think broad shoulders are a good thing....not everyone feels the same way.
I didn't mean "extreme weight loss" to mean "lose 30 lbs in two weeks" or anything so stupid.
I know I'm not hugely obese, but I want to lose as much size as I can. I don't like being big.
Just to make things clear: I have no time line on which to lose this weight. I know it will take awhile.
I don't want to build muscle. I want to get thin.

Your bones won't shrink, remember that. So the wide chest and shoulders might be less meaty/bulky, but you can't lose the large bone structure you have.
Other than that, cardio and eating only when hungry is an excellent idea. Just don't fall into the ultra low carb (get plenty of good carbs) and ultra low fat (get plenty of good fats) as these diets are detrimental to the brain and nervous system as well as the skin, hair and basic cellular functioning.
Also try to realize that a goal to drop 75 pounds in a few months will probably disappoint you. Losing more than a few pounds at a time isn't good for your body, and greatly increases the chances of the weight coming back. Move at a natural pace.

I am a femaile, I know a lot of diets. Do not eat an hour after your stomach starts rumbling that will start your body into survival mode. And it will store all the fats. You need to put your body on an intake schedule, all the water you can drink, if you need flavor there is crystal light, Never eat after you get hungry always eat before you get hungry, and do carido an hour before you eat, and non- cardio about an hour to two afterwards. You don't need to lose 75 lbs, my guess would be about 40 with good muscle tone. edit- when i say good muscle tone I don't mean bulky by anymeans, and my friend is 6 3 and weighs 190 and is very thin, so that should be good 2nd edit - directed towards XX you are ridiculous if you new anything about how your body works you wouldn't be giving such lame advise, when you eat after your stomach starts growling it causes you body to absorb everything especially any fats in the foods no matter how low they are and it stores them to be use later, and the more you do that the less likely your are to meet your goal, and remember when you start losing weight you lose it from head to toe, so your face will get thin first then neck then shoulders and arms and chest and stomach and butt and thighs and calves, you can only make your shoulders and chest as small as your frame is and unfortunately men tend ot have broad shoulders and chests because of their bone structure

I'd do a little research first on the best cardio exercises. I'm pretty sure that you should take a day off every so often...maybe once a week. I think 75 pounds is too much for your height. It depends a lot on your bone structure. Below is a weight table. You might only need to lose about 36 pounds or so!
I think some weight training would be in order, not so much to lose weight, but to tone the muscles so you don't look flabby after you lose weight.
