    I am currently at 275 pounds around 32 % BF

    The Max weight for my branch for my height is 202 pounds
    max BF is 24%

    I dont know if I should aim to lose the BF or the weight? Any ideas? Also what is a MINIMUM amount of calories I can take in a day and not die while spening 50 % of my day working out?

    Are there any cheap ( I am broke ) low fat low carb things I can buy? At this point taste isnt a option I dont care if it tastes like shit. I want to lose the weight in roughly 1 - 1.5 months time is it even possible?

    Or would 2.5 months at a weight lose goal of 1 pound a day be more realistic?

    wow, well, you will lose BF with weight. low carb low fat items probably arent as big of a deal as you think. start eating less.

    Ok I just read it and crunched some basic numbers

    How does this look for a start?


    Daily calories

    2250

    Protein intake

    275 grams

    Fat intake

    20 % = 450 calories

    Carbohydrates = rest of
    calories

    I should clarify that when I say 50 % of my day I mean roughly 5 hours

    I figure 1.5-2 hours at the gym

    2-3 hours walking/jogging

    Shut the fuck up and quit derailing the fucking thread.

    If you don't have anything to add then don't post, Christ.

    looks fine. my nutrition teacher said this the other day, losing weight is a matter of physics, calories burned minus calories taken in equals how many calories lost. in 1 pound of fat there is about 3500 calories. 75lbs you need to lose, 75 x 3500 = 262,500 calories. you want to lose this in 2 months. 262,500 / 60 days = 4375 calories.

    short version: you need a 4375 calorie deficit every day. GOOD LUCK.


    note, this was to burn 75lbs of FAT, im not including muscle loss.

    Ok so 2 months isnt going to happen looking at the numbers. And i thank you for the serious response. 3-4 months is going to be more realistic. Ah well i guess boot during summer wont be to bad.

    I figure when I start walking / jogging tomarrow in 2 weeks I should drop 30 pounds of water weight easy. But who knows. I am fat but I also have alot of muscle. I dunno its hard to explain. I got my BF % by some online thing useing estimates on measurements.

    I think I will hit 24% bf before I hit 200 pounds.

    you should be losing plenty of weight at that calorie intake. im not exactly sure how healthy it is, but at 275 and going around 2000 calories a day, you will get what you want.

    What branch did you join?? I tried to enlist in the Marines last year, but they wouldn't take me because of my tattoos. It was dumb.

    Tat's are not good for the Marines, they frown upon them. The more I think about it now, I'm kinda glad I didn't get in.
