    Unhappy Need to lose 55 lbs. as quickly and safely as possible...

    I need a lot of help. I am currently 280 lbs. I need to drop about 55 lbs. in order to have a 35% BMI so I can meet my companies expectations to be a contract firefighter in Iraq. I have no set diet (just cutting down my portions, calories, and fat) and I am taking whey, Lipo 6, and a multi-vitamin. I need to start a cardio workout. I have to experience with fat-loss so any advice will be accepted. Not only do I want to lose weight for a job, I want to better myself and I want to get into shape. Please help!!!!

    As soon as I drop my weight, I go to the doc and have him sign off that my BMI is at least 35. But, I thought I was already going so I took my leave of absense from work and now I'm F____d. So the sooner, the better.

    Lots of cardio bro! I've never liked just running on a treadmill, maybe try basketball, or swimming.

    Also try super-setting alternate body parts (for example chest and legs) with light weights, high reps, and very little rest inbetween sets. That should get your heart rate up.
    Height = 6'3"
    Weight = 215

    Max
    Bench = 335
    Squat = 365
    Dead = 425

    well, if you are JUST interested in losing WEIGHT, then cut your cals significantly (biggest loser style 1500-1800) and do cardio for hours a day. You'll lose the 55 lbs quickly---you'll look and feel like crap, but you will lose WEIGHT (muscle and fat).

    If you want to look good after, eat a good amount of cals (2500-3000), lift full bodies 3x a week heavy, and do cardio 3-4 times a week. You'll lose it slower, but you won't look or feel like crap when you are done.

    Is there any way you can avoid that LoA? 55 pounds is a lot of weight to drop, not something you can do with water manipulation.

    A simple plan would be:


    Cardio for 30-40 minutes, increase intensity when you are able to. Do your cardio early in the morning, just have some whey before you do it.

    Eat no more than 3000 kcals per day, preferably 2800 or so, split up between 5-6 meals. A shake counts as a meal too.

    Choose lower carb foods. In fact, limit your carb intake to early during the day (center it around your workouts- especially post-workout).

    Main foods to eat are:

    steamed veggies
    eggs
    egg whites
    some fruits
    cottage cheese
    low-fat yogurt
    chicken breast
    fish

    Water intake should be high- minimum 3 litres per day.

    As far as supplements go, just stick to whey protein, a multivitamin, and since you're pressed for time, cycle between stimulant and non-stimulant fat loss supplements (2 weeks at a time).

    Be prepared to be a little hungry at times, the hunger pains will go away after a few days. DO NOT starve yourself though, just eat small meals consisting of the foods outlined above frequently -but keep track of calories-.

    not to sound like an idiot, but what's the difference between stimulant and non-stimulant?

    Some fat-loss supplements contain stimulants such as caffeine or ephedrine, some do not. Your body builds tolerance to stimulants, thus they need to be cycled. The non-stimulant ones don't usually work as well, but they help a little. Its important to cycle them.

    It goes without saying that some weight-training should be included as well, 3 times per week is suffice. Cardio I would do 5-6 times per week. And no matter how tempting, no junk food

    If BMI is the only indicator that's holding you back from this job, you can keep an eye on yours using this website. When you get close, get your doc to sign you off.

    http://elitemrp.net/cgi-bin/bmi/index.cgi

    You might want to avoid lifting weights as the BMI really isn't a good test for muscular people. Stick to cardio and a low carb diet and the weight will just shed off.

    Well at first, it made me nauseated. After a few days that went a way. Still had jitters. I believe its working. Ha ha the nausea helped me not to feel hungry and eat. I ran out of pills and do not have the money to buy some more but I will definitely buy more.

    Is it THAT bad to lose water weight? If not, how do you do that besides taking a diuretic as in Lasix (furosemide)?

    You can lose at least 55 lbs in Iraq, it's called your lower torso.

I have to experience with fat-loss so any advice will be accepted. Not only do I want to lose weight for a job, I want to better myself and I want to get into shape. Please help!!!!
    I did it, so can you. Don't use drugs, you don't need them. Vitamins are ok.
    I did low fat, low cal, high protiend switch. I cut mayo, french frys, soda.. all the obviously bad stuff that fat people love to eat.

    How much money will you make in Iraq? Not sure if it's worth it to ya, but maybe liposuction is an alternative? LOL j/k... well maybe not :P

    Heh, I just advised someone to get liposuction on bodybuilding.com...
    In the pasture of life, don't be a cowpie.
