    Do a lot of aerobic work. Kick boxing, sparring, pilates, whatever floats your boat. If you train hard enough your basal metabolic rate will increase as well as your consuming more calories. I don't know the present recommendations but you need to intake the minimum at least for carbs, protein and fat as well as take a multivitamin a day. When I was young enough to train I trained for at least two hours a day. I would avoid running and swim or bicycle if you don't do something like the above.

    I can't recommend anything but keeping your body in a little ketosis everyday will burn fat once your carbohydrates are exhausted which is fairly quickly (15ish minutes). One way to do this is eat just enough carbs to get by, the minimum of fat per day, and the rest protein. You can eat all the roughage your body can handle and rabbit food (lettuce yada) is good for snacks. I think some call that the Atkins diet and others would say Paleo in some form. More protein less fat less carbs.

    Done some math, the easiest way is low carb/keto. You'll lose a lot of water weight and only have to lose maybe 25lbs of fat/muscle.

    You are looking at a 1500 to 2150 calorie deficit per day.

    Try juicing in lieu of eating so much.

    Work out every day. I prefer running but something cardio. Weights are fine but I would do a much higher ratio of cardio to weightlifting

    Drink a lot of water. I get the mio enhancer sand drink 3-4 32 ounce bottle a day

    If you have a smartphone, download my fitness pal app. You can scan everything you eat and keep track of your calories. It is a pain at first but really shows you how certain snacks can really eat up a lot of calories.

    Limit the big binge snacks at the end of the night.

    Yeah, it is. That's not healthy weight loss.

    If someone is working out every day then they're eating too many fat calories and carbs.

    I hear that all the time from folks we've worked with... "Gosh I work out all the time." Then I ask, OK, so how many calories are you putting into your body every day?

    "I have no idea. I don't keep track. But I work out every day." In other words working out all the time is suppose to cure all weigh loss woes.

    And it doesn't work like that.

    Burn 500 calories more per day than what you consume and you'll burn 1lb of stored energy (fat) per week.

    I don't think an every day weigh in is a good idea, just because there's all sorts of things that can screw-up the number you get on the scale within a 24-hour period. It can be disheartening to see that you've not lost but gained 2lbs since yesterday!

    That does happen.

    I would consider a more spaced out weigh-in pattern.

    You can lift plenty of weights and cut, don't listen to the only cardio BS. Worry less about weight, and more about getting LEAN. Muscle weighs more than fat, so if you build some muscle while you get in shape then who really cares?

    Follow a diet plan like this

    Oh I completely agree. I don't recommend it and doing this is not worth any bet.

    No it's not.

    And even if you were able to lose it that quickly... I think the chances are pretty good that it's all going to come bounding back (on).

    It's not just the bet. . I've been eating the way I use to for awhile now. . I count my calories and been doing it the right way. However I didn't no how much I weighed . I let myself go a bit but make no mistake it's a life style change also

    Is there some amount of roughage your body can't handle? And, if so, what happens then? I bet it's not pretty.

    This is the worst thing you could do. You're far better off eating 5 small meals over one large one. Or just one of any size, for that matter. Your body needs the energy throughout the day. Start giving it only one meal a day, and it will be counter productive, actually storing fat for future energy.

    Agreed. I wasn't even saying a large meal, just a regular meal; you just numb out the hunger pains. It isn't healthy by any means but I always drop weight that way and seems to be a lot faster after breaking through those initial plateaus (this is also when I had a lot of unhealthy vices). Like you said, not healthy by any means but the weight would fly off so much faster than the "small meal healthy way." People kept telling me that (fat storage) but if you wait that out, the weight starts flying off much faster than the healthy way for some reason (after 2 weeks or so)? I know it isn't healthy though.

    I just re-read through the thread and the OP said it was also for a lifestyle change and respect that. I was just giving pointers to win that cash :)
