Somebody was talking about a fat fast yesterday, you should try and look for that post. I think it was a short-term diet due to the low amount of calories consumed while on it.

Wow, that's a lot of change in 2 weeks. I don't think you can do it at that weight (maybe if you were 262lbs looking to drop to 250 lbs...).

Good luck and don't hurt yourself too much.

That is alot of weight for 2 weeks.
You could probably drop some water weight rather quickly.

12 pounds in 2 weeks is asking a bit much. I'd say more around a month or more if you want to stay healthy and retain some muscle.

Indeed,it is too much weight for such a small period. You ll end up looking flat.
Btw, how old are you? Your progress can be fast as long as you re a teen.

A 2000-calorie diet (no less) is what you should looking for.But you can't go there now. You have to follow a certain road.

Do you have a idea of how many calories you're consuming now ?

OK you make a good point chaos, we shouldn't be bashing your idea but instead helping you get as close to the goals as you can!

I'd say go high intensity cardio while keeping your diet under 2000 calories and above 1200 calories with a low fat intake (20% or so). Do a lot of cardio (5 days a week for as long as you can) and then do intense weight training about 3 days a week.

Do it based on fat loss, not on total body weight. Unless you don't care if the weight comes from muscle or fat. If you don't care where the weight comes from, don't do the weight training.

ive lost 95 lbs so far and have never counted calories
i basically just ate lower carb high protein type meals... 5 small meals a day...
it has been working great but now im sort of just stuck....

why not trying to do intervals?
it's the best thing you can do to lose fat while preserving your muscle mass. (along with weight training of course)

As far as diet is concerned, you now have to count calories if you want to make one more step forwards.. Start from 2000 calories, and based on the results after eating this amount of calories for a week, slightly increase or decrease it by 300 calories.
