I would say, only drink water,orange juice, apple juice,etc. Don't drink any pop or sugary drinks. Don't have any fried foods, or fast food of any kind.Exercise 3 times a week. Nothing crazy. A healthy diet you should lose about 20lbs in 2 months. But it will have to be somewhat strict. I mean yes maybe you could have one cheat night a week, but if you really want this to happen, if you want to have that hot bod you are dreaming of, then definately work as hard as you can. Good Luck!

.. umm?? weight watches is a very awsome diet its not strickt and u get to eat what chu want?? god its hard to stick to it but after about 4 days ur stomic srinks and u sont get as hungry coz u get full easier.. ive been on it for like 5 weeks an dive lost 5kg. i wasnt big to start wif but i was a full size 14 but i hav a figure.!! stick to the strictness ov it for teh 3 days and ull feel 100 % better about it after wards.. hope that helps.. xox

Join LA weight loss and exercise it really works.


No, probably not at all, even with a strict diet.

Let's say you have about 4 months to loose weight. You can loose about 2 lbs. a week in a healthy way with eliminating sugar and processed flour products and upping your lean protein, fresh veg & some fruit and getting at least 45 min. of exercise a DAY.

So that means you could safely loose about 32 lbs before June 15. It's best to take it slow and have realistic goals to keep you motivated, positive and seeing long term results.

I think it would be practically impossible BUT just set out to loose as much as you can, don't set unbelievable targets as you will only disappoint yourself and then you ll go back to your old ways. Just eat healthy, very healthy, and exercise LOADS, making sure that you keep enjoying it. Its difficult but you've gotta believe it will all be worth it in the end. Buy a top or skirt that you want to be able to fit into and hang it on front of your wardrobe so you see it every morning when you wake up and use that as your motivation. REMEMBER believable targets. good luck friend, i know its hard. :-)

sport and less high calories food!
less fat, less sugar, less win, more water and regular sports!
more fresh vegetables!
more by mail!

I think you could lose 50 lbs before summer - I lost 21 lbs in 6 weeks with a diet from a1diet. I felt really healthy and didn't feel hungry. But you would have to get started straight away!!

It can be as easy or as hard as you want it to be !
A friend of mine lost 30 pounds last year simply by avoiding fatty, sugary food and drink and walking a couple of miles a day !
Walking is a cheap way to lose tons of weight ! If you can, just leave the car at home and walk , even if it's only to the corner shop !
I eat what I like, I never visit the gym , I've had two kids and I am in my late 30's ..and yet...I am a very toned size 10 ! Why ? Because I walk everywhere, honest !
Give it a go and see, it really does work ! Start off with short walks, and then as you get used to it, increase it gradually and just watch that weight drop off ! Yesterday I went for a 14 mile walk ( I am in training for something) but my point is that I had put on a lot of weight after the kids, drove everywhere and got lazy, until I decided enough was enough ! If i can do it, and my friend can do it...YOU can do it !
Just give it a go .


Try cutting out sugars and excess oils in ur diet. Avoid eating carbs and proteins together and eat little meals more regular instead of large ones 3 times a day. dont starve ur self it causes ur metabolism to slow down. Eat everything raw or steamed. DO regular exercise try swimming, Weights bulk u up so stick to cardio when u start and train with weights when u have lost most of ur weight. If all else fails try going vegan, avoiding starchy veg.

Unless you are doing methamphetamines, you probably aren't going to see that kind of weight loss. Your body just can't handle that kind of rapid weight loss in a healthy manner. If you are losing that much weight that quickly you have some sort of medical illness (like a hyperthyroid, anorexia/bullemia, etc) or are using drugs. Diet and exercise are generally the best options for most people. If this is really a priority, you should talk to a bariatric specialist or your general practicioner.

First off... Don't do fad diets... Most of them are complete BS

Secondly 50 lbs in 4 months is fairly risky. I wouldn't suggest targeting 50lbs unless you are 275+ lbs.

You should probably aim for no more than 2 lbs a week (assuming you are average height/build). So 35 lbs in 4 months is probably a much better goal. Too much weight can be damaging. Just keep working on it throughout the summer.

Eat a healthier diet, fruits/veggies/nuts are some of the best stuff.
Dark berries are great.

One great suggestion is drink water, avoid other drinks like soda (even diet soda, which is high in sodium) and fruit juices that contain corn syrup (avoid all high fructose corn syrup). Yeah drinking mostly water is a great way to cut down on calories.

When i go food shopping I like to avoid junk foods so I'm not tempted (and they cost so much!).

Add some exercise to your routine, doesnt have to be crazy grueling exercise. If your not big on exercise just shoot for 1 hour a week... so 20 minutes a day.

First of all, it's February. If you think you are going to lose 50-70 pounds in 3-4 months you're crazy! Not only is that impossible to accomplish in a healthy way, it is extremely unhealthy in a "crash diet" way. Stay away from diets. YoYo diets are more harmful for you in the long run. You need to just watch what you eat. Stay clear of white foods (sugars, starches, rice, pasta, flours) and eat lots of fiber, raw veggies, almonds, whole grains, and fruit such as blueberries. Eat lots of small meals throughout the day. Exercise often. Cardio and weight training. Cardio is great for burning calories fast, but when you are done your metabolism will slow again. So you need to incorporate weight lifting in your routine. That raises your metabolism so you continue to burn calories long after you stop working out, even when you are sleeping. Drink lots of water, approximatley 1/2 oz for every pound you weigh in a day. So if you weigh 200 pounds, you need to drink 100 oz of water each day. Don't drink soda, don't eat margerine or mayo. Buy high fiber and grain breads. They are moist and you will no need the mayo. Don't eat fried, fast, or processed foods. Shop on the outter part of the grocery store. Stay out of the aisle, as that is where all the "bad" foods are. Stay away from trans fats... It's not difficult, you just need to force yourself to do it the first few weeks. It becomes addictive and easy after that!

Diets do not work. 99% of people gain the weight back. No one teaches the animal what to eat and what not to eat. He knows instinctively what to eat. Humans also have the same instinct. The way it works is just eat whatever tastes good and that will be healthy for you and non-fattening. That is why a baby tastes everything. So again whatever tastes good, is good for you. This is why you will spit out spoiled milk.

But wait!!! Man has the technology to create rat poison. It tastes like healthy food (good taste) but kills the rat. So man has done that to you. Note-- any food unaltered by man (uncooked) that tastes good, is good for you. So if you are stranded in the woods, that is how you know what to eat (cooking changes that). So man has created fake fruit. It tastes like fruit that exists in nature but it is terrrible for health, addictive and fattening called sweets.

So it is natural to like real sweets called fruit, like a baby does, but they have fooled you just like the rat. But they do not want to kill you. They want you to become obese so you will buy lots of their foods. This is called GOOD BUSINESS. Learn how to nourish your body thin, instead of starving your body fat. See site below.

start by eating clean, meaning no fried, add veg anf fruit and try to cut sugars and processwed food. walk or do cardio everyday for an hour. and dont forget the wieghts.

Plenty of love making

walk , walk and walk some more

Be as strict as you can but don't deny yourself anything (as you're more likely to blow it and binge)
Try to reduce as many simple carbs as possible (Bread, potato, sugar etc)
LOTS and LOTS of exercise!! Get your heart rate up about 70% of your recommended maximum for over 40 mins 4-5 times per week
And remember - if you lose it quickly without being healthy you'll drop your metabolism and as SOON as you eat anything with high carbs your body will store it as fat - so keep it healthy
You can lose 3-4 lbs a week by being healthy and eating well as long as you do LOADS of exercise, but check with your doctor / physician first as you're looking to drop a LOT of weight there

Consult a physician first.

Then begin a sensible running program.
or Join a local Y with a weight watchers program on site.

go swimming twice a week and dancing once a week, do you wonders

quanity control and excercise are the key. Eating less and excersing more is the simplest answer but the trick is to do it sustainably, so, finind somethin in your like that ups the excersie and being able to eat just a little less will work. Walking 25 mins, briskly, pushing your self each time to be nearly out of breath is worth a pound a week!

Grow up and don't be stupid!! You know that the only way to lose weight is to correctly balance your diet and excercise regime.

Exercise and strict diet are the only way, if not, you will stay fat.

Hit the cardio room, thats the fastest and guaranteed.
Walk, jog, bike, stairclimber, move move move....

honestly, without a strict diet its not likely to happen. If you have a fast metabolism then it could be possible, however unlikely. but chances are that if you are 50-70 lbs. or more overweight you do not have a fast metabolism. If you don't wish to go on a very strict diet i suggest that you cut back on sugars, fat, sat. fat and also things with high calories, especially if they are from fat. i'm not saying that u should cut them out completely, just hold back on them a little. also run, run and run some more. actually any cardio is good, bike riding, stair master, jump rope, anything that gets your heart beating for a long period of time. all i can say is don't be dissappointed tho if you don't see the results you want, the harder you work, the more results u'll see, the better you eat, the more results you'll see. also don't eat more when u start working out, eat the same or less(depending on how much you eat now), don't eat right after working out or right before bed. if you do all that you will lose quite a bit of weight, probably not 50 or more lbs. but still it will be quite a jump. remember, you MUST eat, otherwise you will actually be hurting yourself instead of helping, just don't eat more just because you are working out, the way to lose weight is to burn off more calories than u take in. if you eat more calories because you worked out, then you are being counter productive because you are just replacing the calories you just burned with more calories.

Exercise, exercise, exercise! I'm talking like 2 or 3 hrs a day of intense cardio!
Eat only healthy foods! NO junk food or fattening foods!
Don't eat anything 3 hrs before going to bed!
Guzzle the water all day long!

That should do it, if you stick to it! Good luck!!

The Man In The Box
All those gimmick diets, such as Atkins, are a complete joke. The best diet is that silly little food pyramid you learned about in grade school. Just eat a bit of everything: meat, grain, fruit/vegetable, dairy, etc. Then make sure you are drinking plenty of water, exercising regularly, and getting enough sleep. Lastly, avoid food that is blatantly crap: Chips, candy, fast food, etc. Do these things, and you should be fine.


first of all its impossible to lose that much in like 4 months. that would take about 12 months. also, of course you need a very strict diet to lose that weight even in 12 months!!

you made yourself gain the weight, so you should have to suffer the consequences and go on a strict diet.

you can't. without killing yourself.

its going to be virtually impossible to lose that much weight without strict diet and hardcore exercise - so if you really want the easy way out, just embrace your fatness, and live with it
