    Is it possible in 5 months to lose 100 lbs and get visible abs?

    say if your starting weight is 268 and worked hard and ate right every day is this possible?

    Nope. You didn't get to be 100 pounds overweight in 5 months, so don't expect to lose it in that time, and even if you did, you would probably look horrible and malnourished.

    40 pounds in 5 months is more realistic. Shoot for that. It'll be good for you.

    You could probably lose 100lbs in that timeframe, however, the visible part probably not.

    At that rate, it would likely harder to control lbm losses, and you may already be overestimating the amount of lbm that you do have right now.

    Maybe the top two abs.... then you'd probably have this huge bag of skin hanging around the rest.

    1-2 pounds per week.... You could do it right in about 18 months and look great.
    A diet isn't punishment. A diet is a way to reward your body with the wholesome, nutritious food that it needs. Your body composition is a direct reflection of what you put in your mouth.

    Jay, I know that if you have at least 4 hours per day to spend lifting and cardio, hire a trainer and a nutritionist, and work your ass off--you can definitely lose the weight. However, visible abs, yes, but not like you would see on the cover of Flex or M&F. That will take more time as your skin re-elasticizes and you tone up after your loss. Talk to your trainer and make sure before you hire one, you interview several for the position. This is a HUGE goal and if you don't pick someone who will motivate you and hold you accountable, it will be a total waste of time and money. Good Luck! I'm going to add you to my friends so I can follow your journey and try to help motivate you.

    no its impossible. if you lose 100 pounds you are gonna have loose skin. and losing 100 pounds in 5 months, and being lean, thats not gonna happen. i'd say no less than 8 months

    What you dont see on the show is these folks are worked day and night with only enough calories per day to perform. On top of that the medical staff is monitoring the participants 24/7..

    That and winning money is one hell of a motivator.

    Their daily caloric deficit is 8,000-16,000 in order for them to lose that much weight. That is a serious workload.

    I am on a 300-500 calorie deficit, and it is hard enough~

    What if your protein intake was high and worked out almost daily? Would loose skin still occur? and if it did would it still be bad? also dont genetics play some sort of a role in loose skin like that?

    if you lose weight that rapidly, your skin will be loose, no matter what you do. Working out and eating protein will remedy that a tiny bit, but losing 20 pounds per month is going to have you looking your best, it'll be a longer process than that.

    I'm coming up on 120lbs lost, in a little over 7 months, and I consider what I did extreme, as in borderline insane. As in a 350+ lb guy with a lot of muscle mass eating 1000 cals a day and then burning it all doing cardio and weightlifting, and even going to the gym twice a day many times. (Still do sometimes) It was what I thought of when I went to sleep, what I thought of while sleeping, and what I thought of first thing when I woke up. I had everything planned days in advance. First 4 months or so, it was all I thought of and did. Not a drop of alchohol or soda to date.

    When I decided to change, something switched inside of me, and I was disgusted. I felt like the real me was trapped in my body, and I did what it took to get rid of the fat ASAP. I didn't care about nothing else, and nothing would stop me. Not even the horrid shin splints I worked through in the beginning or having to work 12 hour days, and then to go to the gym afterwards.

    I walked during my lunch at work. I went to the bathroom at the office that is 300+ feet away, instead of the one 10 feet away. I ran and walked at home. I even bought a 40lb training vest that I now use when I run or go for long walks.

    Have I lost muscle? Probably...but..all of my lifts improved significantly. Most notably my dumbell bench press jumped from 55lb dumbells to now doing 95's for reps, and barbell bench press from about 185 for a few reps to now 225lbs for 8 reps (my personal record). My physique is starting to really sculpt. My bicep is visibly seperating, and I'm getting some awesome vascularity on my forearms. (I'm now under 20% body fat)

    I wore XXXL shirts, now large shirts are loose. I wore 46 waist jeans, now 36 jeans are loose. My mile time has went from 12+ minutes, to almost under 7 minutes and I can run miles at a time.

    Like I said, what I did was borderline insane. I worked HARD. But I am now bearing the fruits of my labor, and boy oh boy they are sweet and delicious fruits! My life is a complete 180 from what it was 7 months ago. I can't even put into words how I feel now. Today I am wearing an athletic fitted all black thermal, with really nice brooklyn jeans, and my staple cologne, and I feel like I have been molested by a bunch of women staring me down. I'm not exaggerating. In fact yesterday someone in the office whom I don't even know ran up to me and stopped me to let me know to keep doing what I am doing because I am looking great. It's moments like that where you feel like you are high on life...if you've never felt the high of life, I highly recommend it, nothing else like it.


    I took the time to write all that out for you because I hope it will inspire you. Don't listen to people here who say you can't do it. You can do what ever you want to do, it just depends on how bad you want to do it. I was the worst of the worst. EVERY meal used to be fast food, and my job involves sitting on my ass all day. A horrible combination, that would surely lead to a young death if I did not change.

    Depends what your body fat is. You can lose 100lbs in 5 months if you diet hardcore and workout steadily but visible abs is a different story.

    I'm coming up on 120lbs lost, in a little over 7 months, and I consider what I did extreme, as in borderline insane. As in a 350+ lb guy with a lot of muscle mass eating 1000 cals a day and then burning it all doing cardio and weightlifting, and even going to the gym twice a day many times. (Still do sometimes) It was what I thought of when I went to sleep, what I thought of while sleeping, and what I thought of first thing when I woke up. I had everything planned days in advance. First 4 months or so, it was all I thought of and did. Not a drop of alchohol or soda to date.

    When I decided to change, something switched inside of me, and I was disgusted. I felt like the real me was trapped in my body, and I did what it took to get rid of the fat ASAP. I didn't care about nothing else, and nothing would stop me. Not even the horrid shin splints I worked through in the beginning or having to work 12 hour days, and then to go to the gym afterwards.

    I walked during my lunch at work. I went to the bathroom at the office that is 300+ feet away, instead of the one 10 feet away. I ran and walked at home. I even bought a 40lb training vest that I now use when I run or go for long walks.

    Have I lost muscle? Probably...but..all of my lifts improved significantly. Most notably my dumbell bench press jumped from 55lb dumbells to now doing 95's for reps, and barbell bench press from about 185 for a few reps to now 225lbs for 8 reps (my personal record). My physique is starting to really sculpt. My bicep is visibly seperating, and I'm getting some awesome vascularity on my forearms. (I'm now under 20% body fat)

    I wore XXXL shirts, now large shirts are loose. I wore 46 waist jeans, now 36 jeans are loose. My mile time has went from 12+ minutes, to almost under 7 minutes and I can run miles at a time.

    Like I said, what I did was borderline insane. I worked HARD. But I am now bearing the fruits of my labor, and boy oh boy they are sweet and delicious fruits! My life is a complete 180 from what it was 7 months ago. I can't even put into words how I feel now. Today I am wearing an athletic fitted all black thermal, with really nice brooklyn jeans, and my staple cologne, and I feel like I have been molested by a bunch of women staring me down. I'm not exaggerating. In fact yesterday someone in the office whom I don't even know ran up to me and stopped me to let me know to keep doing what I am doing because I am looking great. It's moments like that where you feel like you are high on life...if you've never felt the high of life, I highly recommend it, nothing else like it.


    I took the time to write all that out for you because I hope it will inspire you. Don't listen to people here who say you can't do it. You can do what ever you want to do, it just depends on how bad you want to do it. I was the worst of the worst. EVERY meal used to be fast food, and my job involves sitting on my ass all day. A horrible combination, that would surely lead to a young death if I did not change.
    wow man thats extremely inspirational, thank you. I read every bit of it and its a huge motivator.

    Pretty much impossible. I lost 85 lbs total from 270-185 currently (35%ish bf to 13.9% from hydrostatic testing). 50 of which was in a 5 month period. My skin is still pretty loose and Abs aren't really visible. Don't let that discourage you though. You'll still love the improvement regardless of whether or not you have visible abs.
