I think it's pretty much impossible to do that healthily in such a short amount of time.

jog 3 x times a week in the morn
eat 5 small meals
sit ups

basically be sensible , dont eat chocolate lots and similarly dont just eat fruit and veg
stay off booze , keep water and fluids high, perhaps drink more coffee ? has caffeene that speeds up motabolism

thats basically a VERY simple outline

and 6 weeks for 3 stone is rediculous make it 12 weeks - thats still a hard-ish target

No.

If you lost that much that fast you'd just put it ALL back on again when you started eating normally again.

Eat less, take more exercise. It wil take a few months, but if you keep it up the weight should STAY off.

Set a more realistic goal like 1 stone in 6 weeks, then speak to your parents about giving you healthier meals, cut out any snacks and swap them with fruit/veg, and finally exercise more if you have the time.

3 meals a day, snack on nothing but fruit, 2 litres of water, exercise 4-5 times a week. Allow yourself to have treats every now and then and tell whoever makes your meals that you'd like to lose weight sensibly. DON'T STARVE YOURSELF.

have 1100-1300 calories a day (can be easily done by topping up with osmething light (200-250 calories) every other hour. This way you'll intake around 800-1000 calories less a day (depending on how much excersice you put in) plus it'll keep your metabolism high and more importantly, you won't feel hungry. I have sandwiches in the office.

Since 1 pound of fat=3500 calories, you will loose about a pound of fat every 4 days.

1 stone=14 pounds of fat= 49000 calories (thnks for correcting emma)

on this schedule you will loose one stone about every 54 days

(i realise this is very basic and based on lage estimates, but it works with me has worked with other people I tested it on)

Liposuction :yep:

There's no healthy way to lose that much weight that quickly. You'll either end up in hospital with some form of deficiency disease, or you'll have a weight rebound and gain it all back in a few weeks.

Better off going for a more gradual weight loss program.

Losing 3 pounds a fortnight is a realistic and healthy target, but if you work harder and err on the slightly 'less recommended' side of the dieting healthily spectrum you could lose more.

If you lose 2 pounds a week, it'd take around 20 weeks to lose that amount, or 5 months, not unrealistic, but there's no way you can do it in 6 weeks without being incredibly OTT and possibly endangering your health.

Judging by your profile picture though, and apologies if this seems a bit personal, but you look as if you started from a much lower weight than 14 stone if you've lost 2 stoneish, so that affects the time and 'doing it healthily' balance somewhat. Otherwise, well done.

My BMI was 30 - I was clinically obese. I weighed 11.7st.

That's a lot less than 14 Stone + though, isn't it? The more you've got, the quicker you lose it.

What's your point? Weight loss, no matter how big or small, takes time. I was simply illustrating this.

To aim for 3 stone in 6 weeks is as likely as the Titanic being pulled up from the bottom of the ocean.

Thats too hard, 2 months minimum is needed

Though you could try what Christian Bale did when losing weight to be in the Machinist, eat nothing but an apple and a can of tuna a day, or speed works too

Oh, I agree completely.

My point was that someone heavier would lose it quicker, and I don't mean that to belittle you or your loss at all.
