5'3 165lbs on the Special K diet, want to weigh 120 lbs. How many calories a day do I need to achieve this goal in about 2 months. Hardly excercise?

5'3 165lbs on the Special K diet, want to weigh 120 lbs. How many calories a day do I need to achieve this goal in about 2 months. Hardly excercise?

Not advised: Dropping 25% of your body weight in two months with diet alone is going to be next to impossible and even if with exercise quite a challenge. These fad diets are usually just that. You would be better off looking at starting to eat healthy and do regular exercise 2-3 days per week for one hour. This will result in weight loss that is permanent rather than caused by a quick weight loss diet. ...Read more

Does it a good strategy to lose five pounds in the first week of a weight management plan?

Does it a good strategy to lose five pounds in the first week of a weight management plan?

No: Healthy weight loss is generally considered to be weight lost at a rate of about 1 - 2 pounds/week. Weight is easier to keep off when lost at a slow and steady rate using a healthy diet and exercise regimen that can be sustained as a lifestyle, rather than a crash diet. The best diet is one that you can stay on and maintain for life. ...Read more

Will i lose weight with intermittent fasting while eating 1200cl a day? Want to loss at least 30lbs by summer 5'3 217lbs

Not a good plan: Intermittent fasting may not be a good plan, because every time you do that, you slow your metabolism. You want to increase muscle also -- not lose it as you can through fasting. Muscle burns more calories to maintain, than fat does. Working with a nutritionist and trainer (they could be the same person) can help you develop an individualized program to lose the weight. ...Read more

See Dr., and then...: Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (little/no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more

If im 141 lbs and want to lose around 20 lbs ,how can i lose visible amount of weight in a month?Running every day for 30 min?

Too much to lose: in the time you have stated. It is not a good idea to try to lose 20 pounds in a month. You may not lose that much even if you starved yourself. A better goal is about one pound in a week. You need to exercise and reduce your intake of food. It would be prudent to consult your doctor so that you do not become deficient in essential nutrients. ...Read more

8 lbs !: Congratulations. That is a very aggressive weight loss program. I do not know that I would try to lose weight any faster than that. 2 lbs of wt loss per week equates to a deficit of 7000 calories per week or 1000 calories per day. That's about 50% of your daily total caloric intake. ...Read more

You decide: This sounds like a great plan, though the goal you're setting is ambitious. Keep eating healthy stuff that's got enough protein, while trimming the grease, sugar and salt. A chat with your physician, dietician and/or a good nutrition book. Why not make this the beginning of a new lifestyle focused on aerobic fitness? It's good for you and you'll make the right friends.

Starvation: Too little calories- 600 a day, will send your body into starvation mode and may work against your ability to lose weight. You shouldnt have anything less than 1200 calories a day. If you exercise you should lose weight. You shouldnt use a diet pill either- it may have unwarranted side effects. ...Read more
