Sorry for not jumping on the "you can do it" bandwagon, but the guy in his own posts has essentially admitted to terrible impulse control when it comes to eating/drinking. Apparently his FB friends don't think he'll do it either. And the reality is that it's very hard for people to modify their habits overnight, ESPECIALLY busy people like M@T. And the truth is that most diets fail. He may very well cut back on his food intake, but does he even know where he stands relative to his maintenance calories? Unless he creates a significant deficit, he's not gonna see jack for results in a two week time frame.

Don't you box, Matt? Wouldn't a month or two hitting the gym hard with a bit less food do the trick?

I curbstomp myself for fun. It's like dental floss.

Yeah, because before the advent of calorie tracking websites or Lyle McDonald's book, people had never lost weight in a rut.

Kyle is right on, btw.

haha, nice memory. She tells me she is on a diet now, so I guess I'm outweighing her again.

Basically, you would eat nothing but a 500-800 cals a day, depending on your current weight and current BF%. All the cals would be from protein. You can eat as many veggies as you want, as long as they are not starchy ones and not eaten with dips/sauces with carbs/fat. You supplement with fish oil and take a good multivitamin to make sure you don't go deficient in anything. You do moderate exercise because you're too short on cals to do anything too intense.

Everyone I know that's ever claimed they were gonna do the "diet" you just proposed has failed. Based on your OP, all it sounds like you're going to do is cut back from a major surplus of cals to maintenance cals at best. I don't think you'll burn enough cals from working out and unless you seriously modify your diet (much more than you've stated you will), you're not going to see much for results imo.

how many Ls in overkill?

You're right that there are different ways to go about creating the deficit, but if he wants noticeable results by the time he leaves, he's gonna have to get drastic. Of course, unless he changes his habits, he'll put the weight right back on not long after he stops.

heeey, what does that mean?

As for what kind of workout I do every day...see my second post in this thread...I'm thinking I'll do that 3 times a week, box twice, yoga once and swim on Sunday. Not bad, right? I also have a decent track record when it comes to kicking my own ass - this will be the third time it has been done times in the past nine years - once nine years ago (I got up to 83, heaviest I've ever been, took up kickboxing and was fighting competitively at 69 within a year), once about four years ago (got to 81, took up boxing, and have been in the 73-76 range basically ever since)...and now.

As for general lifestyle, I generally eat sorta OK and get enough exercise - notably through boxing as Metrostyles pointed out - however it is more a case of me going completely fucking overboard over the past couple of months between a particularly busy work period which included a lot of travel, and then capped off by the festive season and my own well document proclivity for festivity.

So now I think I need to go completely fucking underboard, and then resume my standard maintenance regime...kick my own ass for a third time.

So, ya, I am doing a 'crash' time, but I generally am at maintenance calories input/output as a general rule....and given that I have only really gotten out of hand 3 times in basically a decade, I am pretty good with maintaining when I get back to where I should be, and also really good at nipping it in the bud when it creeps back.

2.5 weeks? Thats rough. I would eat fish and healthy vegetable soups everyday and run everyday.

Im on my last 10 lbs phase (started @ 160 back in October)and since I stopped running my loss starting to drag to less then 1 lbs a week.im eating 1500-1800 calories (40,40,20), lifting 3 times, yoga 1 time, and plyo 1 time a week...its too cold to run so Im just gonna wait it out another few weeks and start running again. When Im running I can drop 2lbs a week easily....Im trying to get to 127, Im at 137 now.

oh I don't think I'll drop five kilo in two weeks, sorry if I gave that impression...but I am off to Japan on the 10th, and expect there to be a bit less of me by then. OK, lunchtime, going to Juice and eating a salad sandwich

That's not what I said. Fact is, probably 9/10 diets are total failures. Now that's a made up number, but i'd be willing to bet that a significant majority are. If people had a clue about this stuff, it wouldn't be such a huge industry and there wouldn't be a million books about it when it's actually pretty damned simple most of the time. M@t, I didn't mean anything particularly bad about what you bolded. If you're generally at maintenance and have a stable weight most of the time then maybe you'll do better than I thought. Based on your OP, I was assuming you were way over maintenance (you had to be to go from 73-80kg) and had shitty impulse control (hello "this is how we roll" thread and own comment about drinking and facebook). And mostly, I know you're a really busy guy. Busy guys usually can't spend the requisite amount of time in the gym to burn enough cals to offset a bad diet in a short period of time. People often overestimate the amount of cals they burn during exercise. I noticed that for myself when I got an iphone app that actually told me what I was burning based on weight lifted, etc. Diet really is the biggest factor for most people, most of the time. The only reason I linked that site was because you were saying you were 80kg and that you should be 73, and that you basically had 2 weeks to do it. 7 kilos is a shitload of weight to lose in that time period.

Matt, good luck.

here's another idea, now we are less than 20 kilos apart. put on 10 kilos in the time it takes me to loose another 10, and we can be at the same weight.


actually, I am hoping to be down to 80 before the summer. we'll see. but good luck

Jeez, how much weight have you lost? I've seen your pictures on FB, and honestly - no offense - but you look way bigger than me. Are you just extra light and fluffy or something? Do you have hollow bones like a bird? Are you five feet tall? I am pretty sure your calves are the size of my waist. Explain pls. You bastards are starting to make me feel self-conscious.

Fuuuuck.

Damn Christmas. Damn New Years. Damn Indonesia. Damn Cambodia. Damn beer. Damn marijuana-spiked-happy-pizza-induced munchies. Damn 24 hour minimart near my house. They have conspired against me. Bastards.

Damn.

I should be like 73. Weighed myself this morning...eightpointfuckingfour.

OK.

No drinking this week (ppl already disputing that on my Facebook status). I will attempt to not eat crap. I will abandon soda and drink only water. I will work out every day until Japan. I will beat this.

Two and a half weeks....
dude you are damned lol
good luck

Explain pls.

1. I'm 5 foot 5
2. I was 330 pounds at peak
3. I am down to under 220

so, yes, I was enormous, and now I am just fat, or maybe even just chubby.

I know how you feel. I do a pretty intense boxing workout myself 5 or 6 times a week but due to the holidays and travel, I'm playing catch up right now. I also have a bad habit with soda and the occasional junk food spree!

Congrats. I thought you were taller.
