Yes in theory but that's a lot to lose in such a short time.

Yes, depending on your weight already. Obviously the bigger you are the easier it is to lose.

A good and regular exercise routine and a clean diet will certainly help you lose weight.

That 20lbs in 15 days. It's recommended that weight loss shouldn't exceed 1-2lbs fat or upto 1% of your total body weight in 7 days. To attempt the kind of weight loss you want to achieve in such a short period of time would be dangerous.

Cease eating and drinking and the weigh will fly off, you'll also die, but at least you'll be skinny

Don't focus on weight, focus on what you look like in the mirror.

With your approach, you'll lose a bunch of weight to begin with but a lot of that will be water and muscular glycogen. Honestly, losing weight at such a ridiculous pace is likely to lead to a lot of muscle catabolism (unless you're very fat right now) and so you'll lose weight but probably still look soft and flabby.

Do some resistance activity to maintain muscle and cut calories moderately.

20lbs in six weeks is possible - a stone could be a more sensible target.

If you want to kill your metabolism then go for it. Basically you'll end up being able to maintain your body weight eating like 1000 calories a day if you cut them too fast. No harm in taking time with it.

That would require you to lose 0.4 lbs per day, which would require you to be in a calorie deficit of just under 1700 a day (which means you need to eat 1700 calories under your TDEE). So basically, no this is highly unlikely.

http://www.fitnessfrog.com/calculato...alculator.html

If you want to lose weight you need to start by having some realistic goals, because honestly you're going to crash, burn and give up with a plan like this.

If you want to lose weight then use the link above to calculate your TDEE, then eat approx 500 calories less than that a day on average to lose approx 1lb per week (as 1lb is approx 3500 calories, so by eating 500 calories less by the end of the week you will have been in a deficit of 3500 = 1lb lost, approx). It really is that simple, that is literally all you have to do.

To count calories I recommend myfitnesspal. good luck and don't be silly and try to starve yourself to reach your goals. You'll just end up giving up and not losing any weight at all, slow and steady mate.
