I want to lose six inches off my waist and I wonder if I can lose one inch a week for six weeks? What things would I need to do?
Lots of cardio? losts of weight lifting? very strict diet? if I follow these is it humanly possible to lose an inch a week?

The simple answer: No.
I suppose you could go on the crack diet.
IF it were possible you'd end up with loose skin any how.
Goin_Big thanks for your reply. You say that if you lose the fat too quick your skin can be lose? So It's better to go slow. If you go slow your skin won't be lose?

LMAO your skin will be loose. I lost over 40 pounds in about 3-4 months & I didnt have any loose skin. Everybody told me I lost the weight in a fast period of time. Now, I've heard of loose skin after liposuckion(spell??). I could be wrong, & y'all correct me if I am, but I dont really think you'll have to worry bout loose skin.
But I'm with goin big - NO. you would have to have a perfect diet & extremly lots of cardio. That would mean you would go from a 38" waist to a 32" (just an example of size) waist in just over a months time. Like my old science teacher used to say, "Anything's possible so I wont say it can't be done - but it's very unlikely"

Big J if you were to lose fat as fast as he wants to, you would end up with lose skin. Yes, you lost weight fast, but not super fast. Also, the younger you are, the more elasticity you have in your skin, so you have less of a chance to get loose skin.
I'm not saying you'll get loose skin from fast fat loss, but at the rate he wants to, yes you would.
why the rush? How long did it take to put all that weight on? Why does it need to come off in 6 weeks?
If you can't lose 6 inches in 6 weeks are you not going to bother trying?
All you can do is follow a sound diet and train regularly. If it happens then that's great. If you only lose 3 or 4 inches are you going to be disappointed? Quit worrying about 6 weeks from now and just start eating right and working hard. 6 weeks isn't very much time considering you have the rest of your life to help yourself look and feel better. Why not just start and see how things go?

Once you start seeing the inches fall off, you won't care if it's 4 or 6. Just watching the progress will keep you going. Lose it too fast and you may not like the results. Just my $0.02 worth from my experience.

I have been going thru this same thing. At best I lost 3/4 per week for two weeks straight. Lots of cardio and about 1200 calories per day. Felt like crap. I can lose about 1/2 per week and still feel like a normal person. I know where you are coming from and it can be discouraging but time flies. Just keep at it.
jds22, What do you weigh? Please tell me it's 90lbs, because unless you do, that's far too little calories, especially with lots of exercise.

TryingToBeBig, sorry if I didn't clear things up in my post. I lost 3/4 while doing about 1200cals and felt like crap. So I upped my cals to about 1700-2000 and feel fine with about 1/2 inch per week loss. I am 5'10" and currently 159lbs and will be in a fat loss program until Sept 1. I then will start a building phase over the winter. Not to get mushy or anything, but thanks for the concern.
You've got to consider that the heavier you are, the faster the weight will come off...for a while at least. If you're extremely overweight, you should see more results in the first several weeks, in terms of fat loss, than someone who is in better shape. I started out about 40lbs over weight and I lost 25lbs of that in probably about 8 weeks, but the rest of the fat is still there. It'll take time.
