    OP you either believe saddoolt or everyone else.
    The standard safe healthy rates of weight loss are 1-2lb a week,, which would put your traget between 6-12lbs. You may get a boost from the beginning by losing some water weight but that will tail out and often comes back. I think its too much but good luck with it. You talk about healthier and lifestyle change, but it doesnt sounds like it. You are going to have to create over a 1500 cal deficit a day. See how you get on though.

    any weight comes back if you go back to poor eating habits....that's why you should lose weight with something you can stick to

    Your diet consists of popcorn chicken, bbq sauce and ice cream. Tell me again how you know what you're talking about.

    Sounds like she eats some bangin' food.

    @SadDolt - I support your food choices. 100%. You can do it!

    But she has no peeps. How can she eat her ice cream if she has no peeps?

    Sadly, the The 10 Day Master Peep Cleanse(TM) is no more. It has been made abundantly clear that posts and subsequent discussion regarding the The 10 Day Master Peep Cleanse(TM) are a violation of the MFP Terms of Service. The founders of the The 10 Day Master Peep Cleanse(TM) appreciate your long-standing support, but no further details regarding the The 10 Day Master Peep Cleanse(TM) will be posted in the MFP forums. For further information, please buy my final book, The 10 Day Master Peep Cleanse(TM): No Peeps For You! The Rise And Fall Of A Satiric Response To Pervasive Pseudoscience.

    Meh. I'm going to wait for the movie. I hear Kevin Spacey is playing the lead.

    That's what I heard too. :)

    OP, remember slow and steady wins the race. Set some reasonable goals and you will lose weight. You can do this in a healthy manner, I know you can. :)

    You could do intermittent fasting or ADF to accomplish that.

    Intermittent fasting is not magic. Under any situation, and on any diet, you absolutely must eat less calories than you burn to lose weight. It's science.

    I was an ace at dropping weight at this sort of rate when I was 19 - there are ways to sustain your energy at the gym as well and to flatten your stomach at the last minute. I knew and practiced them all. I won a couple of bikini competitions as a result back in the day. I am, however, infertile (yeah, still, it didn't ever come right), after years of skipped periods as well as other health issues.

    I did however, look FANTASTIC in my twenties.

    So.. theres that.
