Is it possible to lose 30 lbs in 100 days?

Is it possible to lose 30 lbs in 100 days?

Wouldn't advise it: Even if it's possible, I wdn't advise it. Better to lose 1-1.5 lbs/wk (mod wt loss) by changing habits & diet. That's ~15-20 lbs in 14 weeks (98 days). To lose more wt, often u have 2 crash diet or exercise madly. Crash diets ultimately result in MORE wt in the long-run that's harder to lose. Extreme exercise can b dangerous & injurious when unsupervised. If morbidly obese, seek surgical advice. ...Read more

Is it possible to lose 40-50 lbs safely in 3-4 months?

Not really: A good goal for weight loss is 1 pound/ wk which equals cutting out 500 calories from your diet each day. You would lose 16 pounds in 4 months. Daily exercise burns 250-500 calories and you can lose an extra pound a week = 32 pounds in 4 months. More than that would not be healthy and is hard to sustain unless it is through bariatric surgery which can lead to dramatic and rapid weight loss. ...Read more

Is it bad that a 11 year old, 5 ft and 6 in, be 195 lbs, if so how can lose weight? And goal is 100 lbs if not 120 the maximum.(a girl)

195 lbs is too big: For anybody 5' 6", being 195 lbs is much too big. The solution is to stop eating more food (calories) than is needed to live. That usually means eating small amounts at set meal times and set snack times, avoiding sugars and simple starches, and avoiding sugary drinks like sodas or juices. One can aim for dropping 1 pound a week, for 1 year... Getting to 150 lbs, and then deciding what to do next. ...Read more

Lose Slowly: Mostly like no. It is not safe to lose large amount of weight too quickly. Most of the "weight" lost would not be fat but water, which could lead to dehydration.

Crash diets may seem to work in the short term, but can have negative effects on your body in the long term. ...Read more
