    I hardly doubt you'll be able to.

    Unless you're obese, I wouldn't aim for even 10lbs a month, but you can healthily cut some 6lbs, which is halfway there.

    Read the link on my signature and the stickies and you'll know everything you have to do to lose that weight.

    Is this a joke? 15lbs in 25 days is not possible. Maybe if you stopped eating altogether.

    You shouldn't aim for any more than 2lbs a week otherwise it's counter-intuitive. 1lb a week is your best bet. Cutting 500 calories from your diet a day adds up to 3500 a week which equates to 1lb of fat. You could up it to 1.5-2 like I said but losing fat is a slow and steady process.

    So yes, 4lbs is high and if you aim for that, your body's going to start preserving fat more and start breaking down muscle for energy instead which is not what you want.

    Why are you aiming for this in 25 days?

    Not impossible, but surely counter-productive, as you have explained.

    You are hardly going to look any different with 15 lbs gone, especially if you are just starting, you would lose 5 lbs of that right away as water weight which you cant see regardless. You say you tried losing weight, but what you havent tried is eating less calories than your body needs to sustain its weight.
    There is always someone less fortunate, with real hunger, with real adversity, who made something of themselves. What is your excuse?

    well of course anyone can notice it, i was a fatass myself but from going untrained to slightly skinnier isnt going to be much of an appeal especially with rapid weight loss unless the guy has a solid foundation of muscle.

    Calm your titties, brah. I thought you were 19 because you had 19 posts (didn't pay attention). Also, I'm 20 but I never had the "LOLZ ME NEEZ ABZ" mentality.

    Also, I would suggest you look at the 1st reply to your thread. I pointed you in the right directing and how to get around doing your cut healthily.

    Good luck.
    Also, negged. EDIT: can't . I'll try tomorrow if I remember.

    if you haven't been dieting at all yet, and are all bloated from current bad eating habits, you can lose quite a bit of weight in 25 days. your first week will be the biggest drop in weight.

    I would go on a hi brotein diet like you can find in Lyle Mcdonalds book Rapid Fat Loss.

    Simmer down, mang.

    Hopefully you're getting the gist of these responses, though. Barring dismembering a limb, 15lbs in 25lbs in near impossible, and by certainly no means healthy. Even if you did come close to that, a good portion of it would merely be water weight, which you would regain when returning to maintenance caloric levels. Another fair portion of such weight loss would be lean body mass, meaning you would lose some muscle, not just fat. Search the key terms "protein sparing modified fast" if you want quick results; however, recognize that it's a pretty painful experience, you probably still won't hit 15lbs, and you'll gain some of it back soon. "The Rapid Fat Loss Handbook" by Lyle MacDonald addresses just this.

    Best of luck.
    Diligence, patience, persistence.

    I am the same height as you and it took me 10 weeks to go from 196 to 185. Now that isn't a speedy cut because I have been cutting down all the way from 295 over the past 14 months and my motivation to stay super strict isn't what it was when I first started. If it were I could have lost another 5-6 pounds in that time frame. You also differ in that you are just starting out so there will be some water weight that you lose right away. That can be 5 pounds or more. Add that all up and you could lose as much as 20-25 pounds over the next 10 weeks. You won't be losing 15 pounds in 25 days though.

    As for the how, read the sticky threads. All it takes is proper diet. Eat less calories than your body needs to maintain and you will lose weight. Add some heavy resistance training and focus on getting enough protein in your diet and most of that weight will come from bodyfat. If you want to boost your activity level to burn even more calories adding some cardio is fine. Do as much as you can manage/want to do. Listen to your body though. If you feel like you need a break take a break. It is better to lose one day a break than to lose several weeks due to an injury.

    It will take your body 1 to 2 weks just to figure out what is goin on before you will start seeing any results besides water weight decreases. It's like fertilizing your lawn, you have to wait a little while to start seeing results.

    dont get me wrong guys. ive been working out riligously for the last 4 months and have lost some weight in the process but i havent been cutting calories as i have just been lifting and eating a lot to put on some musle. i have dropped about 12 pounds since i started working out in february and have packed on muscle throughout all this. im not looking to get a six pack at the end of the 25 days, i am just trying to slim down some of the pudginess that is my mid section, unfortunatelly.

    i know how to lose weight the unhealthy way. its called jaw surgery i had it
    i went from 235 to 185 in 5 weeks.
    thats why i came on here to get some pointers.
    but instead im getting a couple people that are constructive and everyone else being *******s in the process.
    instead of teaching me what proper goals i can set that ARE acheivable in the time needed. you are all just putting me down. how does that work for a community thats suppose to be inspirational and motivating???

    Good luck.

    If you lost weight while eating more, it means you were still eating at a caloric deficit. Your muscle gains were most likely newbie gains, which is good.

    If you haven't done so already (you know, being busy bashing me), I would recommend, again, reading the link in my signature and the stickies around the forum to learn how to make a healthy weight-loss program.

    Don't try to take things too fast right now. Until you understand how to control your caloric intake and how your body responds to certain diets compared to others, I would suggest taking it slowly.

    Slow and steady wins the game.

    Good luck.

    EDIT: You're right, I just can't be constructive I was too busy writting this little piece of info for you. Should have spent my time being constructive, though.

    The only way to do it is to diet too hard, do a **** ton of cardio, and employ various techniques to flush water at the end. Not worth it.

    Shoot for 10 pounds of quality (fat) loss. If you don't make it? You'll have lost some fat.

    10 lbs was where folks started to notice I was leaning out, that was 6 weeks in to my cut. It's a solid goal and good advice but not what I'd do under pressure to look good.

    If I were in your shoes, 25 days to look as good as possible, I'd lift as heavy as I could for those weeks, make sure my diet was absolutely solid on no more than a 750 cal/ day deficit while getting my protein / carb / fat ratio as good as possible and take what I could get. Basically 4 weeks at -750 should net you about 6 lbs of loss with as much as possible of that being fat. If you still have some newb gains left in you, you might net a minimal amount of muscle. Sorry man, 25 days is just not much time when you are talking about changing the way your body looks, most of us think in terms of months or years.

    Where the fat is going to come from is strictly based on genetics. If the genes say belly fat is going to come last, it's going to come last and there is not a lot you can do about it.

    Eat too much muscle away and you'll just wind up looking skinny fat, which IMO is worse than muscular with a bit of pudge.

    FYI: My advice may suck, if so, the next several posters are going to let you know
