I want to lose around 25 -30 pounds in about 5 months, is this realistic?

So for my new years resolution, i'm going on a idiet. Cliche, i know. But It's my 18th brithday in june, and i've promised myself that i'm going to get fit by then. It's quite a bit of time so i think it's doable, but i've never actually seriously tried losing weight before, so i don't know if my goal is realistic or if maybe i could even lose more?



Also, if anyone can tell me which foods i should stay away from and which foods are really good, as well as which exercises work best, i'd be really greatful.



Thanks :)

yes this is realistic. but it depends on your previous physical activity, diet , and what type of diet you are going on.

like if you were previously none active throughout your days at all any type of exercise would make you lose a drastic amount of weight. but you must be aware that if you gain any muscle, muscle weighs more than fat so your weight can go up.

or if you previously ate a lot of junk food on a daily basis, if you cleaned that up you could also wind up losing a lot of weight. but remember also that you can only lose weight if you eat at least 200-400 calories less than you ate previously on a daily basis.

i gess its realistic depending on how dramatic your diet is going to be. i say lay off the junk food and sweets, and try eating more fruit and veggies. less calories, and less fat. but ive never done this either so idk...

If you plan to keep the weight off, it's healthiest to lose 1-2 lbs a week. So yes, you can do it. It's okay to lose a little bit more the for the first week or so BUT if you say, lose 6lbs a week for 3 weeks your body will go into starvation mode and it will be VERY difficult to shed the rest of that weight.
