Alright i know many of you have read tons of articles on how to lose weight and become very strong or what not and they will probally be better then mine but it worked for me and it could work for you i lost 42lbs in 1 month for wrestling going from 210 to 168.


Mornings - If you really want and determined to lose weight fast get some powerbars and eat a half for breakfast(i did this for about a week and a half) and then you can start eating a full powerbar or eating 2 eggs in the morning.

I would snack on the other half of the powerbar during the day till lunch time just to keep my self going.

Lunch - I flip flopped around on this going from another powerbar or some protein.

After weights/practice Dinner - I would come home and eat 2 skinless chickens for all that awesome protein and a full bowl of fat free sugarfree jello(Jello to me is the key to lose weight its another way to get down water with a better taste) and if it was a hard practice and i was still hungry i would have a bowl of cereal.

btw if your overweight and want to do something about it i know a few people who have done this they just joined their highschool wrestling team just to get in shape and lose the weight that you lose in wrestling practices you probally wont be a varsity wrestler in less you put a lot of effort and leave everything you have on the mats.

You also need to cut out all pop out of your diet i would occasionaly drink a diet pop if i had stayed on my diet and not broke it at all at the end of the week and all candy has to be cut.

I lost 42lbs in 1 month for wrestling going from 210 to 168.

How many lbs of muscle did you lose?

Did you have your bodyfat tested?

When i was at 185 i got a bodyfat testing i was 25%(i had no abs) when i was at 168( i was @ 19%) now im at 180 again and im at 17%.

I only do abs when im forced to during practices ive done maybe 3-4 ab work outs outside of school/afterschool practice so my abs arent really defined at all.

[Edit] At practice we could truthfully get rid of 4-5lbs a practice of waterweight from sweat and if you dont eat that night or drink you will lose a few pounds.

At 185 @25% you had LBM of 139lbs
At 168 @19% you had LBM of 136lbs
You lose 17lbs total; 4lbs of which was LBM.
That's not a bad effort at all!

180 @ 17% you have a LBM of 149lbs.
You gained 12lbs (168 to 180), 13lbs of which was lbm (136 to 149).
(I forgot, you lost 1lb of fat too)

Highly impressive... gained 12lbs LBM and lost 1lb fat.

I'm not trying to discredit you at all.. if those numbers are correct then you've had some impressive results.

Losing 42 lbs. in a month is near impossible at your weight, but I've seen stranger things happen.

Yeah, that too.

I think he just lost a bunch of odd ends. Maybe an ear, some toes, fingers, etc.

If you guys dont think its possible go talk to some highschool/college wrestlers and they will tell you how much weight you can lose going to practice and working your ass off and eating better.

Well, like I said, it's amazing progress. Gaining 12lbs of solid muscle WHILE losing fat is pretty incredible. That's probably what people find hard to believe.

Also it seems unrealistic to lose 42lbs in a month and not LOSE a sh*tload of LBM.

Good for you if you managed it though :)

And high school/college wrestlers are the last people I'd turn to for weight loss advice. There are simply healthier alternatives to what they do to lose weight. And there's a difference between "weight" loss and "fat" loss.
