    Hey, I was just wondering one thing... My friend is trying to lose ten pounds in one month... Strictly cardio... Is this possible? I read somewhere that you can only lose realistically one pound per week... Am I wrong? I just want some clarification, thanks.

    Its not wrong, bue he/she will lose lots of muscle in the process.

    I wouldnt recomend losing so much weight so quickly.

    Yeah... Thats what I said, but he is not worrying about muscle mass at all, just main goal to lose weight and get in shape for soccer. So it is possible then? I guess i was wrong, then.

    strictly cardio would be about 2 hours a day. Not extremely difficult in any sense
