No, not at all. If Rudals recently put on the weight (he has), I guarantee I could get it off him in a week....in a healthy way. None of that miracle diet BS. He might not like the food and he will hate the workouts, but I would bet on the success. I needed to get down to a good football (soccer) weight about 6 months ago and dropped 15 in a week. It is still off. Is everyone disciplined and motivated enough to do it...no, but it is more than doable. I would say 10-15 is more reasonable than stating a solid 15.

^ How exactly would that work? My understanding is that one pound of weight is equivalent to 3,500 calories, suggesting 10 pounds would be equivalent to 35,000 calories. I don't see any possible way one could run that sort of cumulative calorie deficit in one week. I believe that you lost the weight, but it boggles my mind.

I believe it's one pound of body fat that's roughly equivalent to 3500 calories.  A lot of initial weight loss is water, which is why people who get the flu can lose so much weight so quickly.

Yep, if you lose 15 in a week most of that will be water weight.

I don't think someone who weighs about 180 has 15 pounds of water weight to lose in one week.

5-7 pounds sounds much more reasonable.

I've seen losses of 10-15lbs in the initial week of a low carb diet with men over 300lbs, but that is almost entirely glycogen/water loss.

I understand your doubt. If the weight was water weight, it would have came back. I don't get into the science of it, I just know what my body has and can do. I am actually at the gym typing this:


I ran a 5k on the treadmill in 20:12 and now I will keep up this RPM on the bike at increased level every 3 min for 20min. Core stuff, push-ups, pull-ups...done. I'll eat some black beans a good spinach salad and probably have a good stout to wash it down. I don't know guys, it works for me...always has and I'm in my mid 30s. That said, I probably don't the calorie intake (don't track) I should, but eat at least every 2-3 hours and on no specific diet, although I don't eat red meat.

What I should have said is I can do it and I believe I could get the same results with Rudals. I could fail miserably because results vary depending on the person...but I think he could and don't doubt any of you could do it if you tried/wanted to.

I was 195 (6'3"). I am right around 178 these days. The initial drop took a hard and dedicated week...believe it or not. You guys don't know me personally so feel free to doubt away. I understand.

That's what I meant. I should have been more specific. I guess I figure the water weight doesn't stay off permanently. Reminds me of stuff guys on my high school wrestling team would do to get under a certain weight.

I have to force myself to do cardio since I hate it and am trying to combine cardio with pushups / pullups / planks / other exercises.

No problem and good luck. I love cardio and hate weights. Push-ups and pull-ups are about it for me, other than core strengthening.

I once lost about 15 lbs in about a month. I did it the dumbest way. I ate only breakfast and skipped the rest and walked from one end of dc to the other into Virginia. Starvation caused my body to dip into my muscle cells so I ended up with droopy face and skinny legs with no muscle.

I tend to do the above mentioned exercise routine while eating every meal.

Noodles while you are waiting for the Formosas and since you are itching to buy a suit so bad. Why not diversify your wardrobe a bit with suit supply? This is a DB with wide lapels and you should try the 40L or 42L

This one is cut long so a 40R/42R should work for you and we've seen that it sits beautifully on your shoulders

The human body cannot metabolise more than about 0.5-1kg of fat per week. Any further weight loss is either from dehydration or from burning muscle (which the body can also do, and quite quickly).

 

Anyone who has credible evidence to the contrary should immediately submit it to a major scientific journal, as fame, professorships, Nobel prizes and bevies of nubile undergrad groupies would certainly be in the offing.

 

The other very rapid way to lose weight is to amputate a body part.

Coxsackie dropping the knowledge bombs! :slayer:

Bombs? More like farts. They stink the place out for a while, then are quickly forgotten.
