3 stone in 4 months boils down to 42 lb in 16 weeks which is >2.5lb a week. In short, not likely. (At least not of fat).
You want to hold onto the muscle and burn the fat. 2.5lb of fat is 8750kcal/week energy deficit. You would have to do something drastic to get that
thats 16 minimum. more likely to be atleast 21
yes, 2-3 lbs per week is a healthy amount of weight to loose.
The weight watchers diet is good for this, because it allows you to eat what you want as long as it counted in your 'points' range.
i think it's worth giving it a try, but it'll be really hard - there won't be any real room for treats i wouldn't have thought, given that you'll have to lose about 2.5lbs a week on average.
if he sees you're working really hard at trying to lose weight and by the end of the 4 months you're not that far away from losing the full weight he might give you the money anyway?
although if it were my dad he'd probably "forget" the arrangement and not give me a penny, even if i'd done what he wanted.
Honestly, over 2 lb/week is a bit much. Even 2lb a week is pushing it for most people.
1-1.5 is a much easier/more realistic target.
How overweight could you possibly be? What is your height/weight? If your BMI isn't that high it would be pretty difficult.
4 months seems pretty short, unless you were willing to lose a lot of muscle in the process. Is he going to weigh you at the end? It seems very strange.
yes it's possible...but hard work...
2.5 Ib a week is possible but it depends on how much you weigh to start with, very overweight people actually have high BMR's which means weight loss happens quicker than for someone at a healthy BMI.
Good luck but take care.
Prob not...although you'll start losing weight fast to begin with it will slow down after a few weeks to usually about a 1lb a week and some weeks you gain weight too due to water retention and hormones etc
Haha, your dad is not mean or a moron, if anything, he is a genius. He probably knows you have the slimmest of slim chances of doing it so is on to a winner.
It took me a year of healthy eating and exercise to lose 3st. Hell, I'd give you a grand if you managed to do it healthily in 4 months lmao.
You could easily do it if you were willing to drop carbs + start lifting
