It is a crash diet, and not good to do for any kind of long term, but google the “3 Day Military Diet”. It has a specific menu for 3 days that you are not supposed to substitute, that is supposed to allow you to lose up to 10 pounds in that time frame. 

 

They recommend that you do the diet for 3 days (it is about 1000 calories a day) and then eat sensibly for 4 days. Diet for 3 days, eat sensibly for 4 days, and continue until you feel you are at a comfortable weight.

@cantwait412:  If you want to try the “quick fix” route try HCG injections. My BFF lost tons of weight in 1 month but she barely ate anything lol

Some good news is if your obese and currently are not following a excersise plan you can  see big changes in your weight by making small changes in your life! I recently lost around 50 lb and when I started the weight came off very quickly. I followed a moderate excersise plan filled with stuff I actually like! I started with short hikes and built up to longer ones. I joined weight watchers, and found the accountability of a weekly weigh in really helped, not to mention the support of people with a common goal. I cut out a great deal of processed sugar, sweetened drinks and carbs. I never eliminate anything out of my diet completely,it just does not seem realistic to me! I splurge one day a week and stay accountable the rest. I know how hard it can be at first but eventually you will start making the right choices without thinking, and it won’t feel like your depriving yourself or compromising. Ignore any talk of fad diets, shakes,bars,and extream workout regimens. Put good healthy food into your body and move more than you have been and I promise the weight will disappear Smile

@cantwait412: I could definitely give you some advice if you’d like. I lost 110 lbs in about 10 months and I did it the healthy way. I could either give you advice here or if you’d like you can PM me 🙂

In 5 months you could easily lose 30-40  lbs if you take the right steps.

cut out pop & sugar drinks, drink only water and if you must tea or coffee without heavy cream or sweeteners.  Stick to whole, unprocessed foods – think fresh veggies & fruit, chicken & fish. Cut out red meat as much as you can.  I’m amazed at how full a good salad can make me, you just have to make sure to get your protein to keep you full.  I find having crunchy things to snack on helps too – cucumber, celery etc.  Don’t try and comletely deprive youself or you will fail, allow yourself SMALL rewards – a chocolate pudding for desert after dinner or some other treat that’s not super high calorie.

You have 5 months, if you’re actually as obese as you say you are you can still safely lose a significant amount of weight in that time.  Focus on training your upper body, your arms and shoulders and back, they’ll make you feel and look thinner in your dress (i’m assuming this is a concern).  No matter what you’ll look amazing because it’ll be the best day of your life 🙂

I’m 10 weeks away and have lost 40lbs so far and would love to lose another 20lb a couple lbs a week is ok. For me I’ve been very good with diet, not depriving myself but also allowing myself to actually get hungry! But the big thing is sweating & burning calories! I walk a couple of miles every day then kickbox 3 times a week- more if i can. The only thing that works for me is the moto ‘ just do it’! Simple! I can make every excuse in the world but i don’t want to hate how i look on my wedding day, so just do it! Go out after work, go out at lunch, walk and have real food but healthy food, the. Move!! And sweat!

@Laur12:  With a lot of help from my husband. He helped me eat healthy and exercise regularly. I started off by walking every day and eating healthy/cutting calories. Then I added in weights and then cardio cicrcuits. I drank a lot of water and worked out 5 times a week.

@adillon1:  Lean Cuisines are awesome (ummm pizza, yes please)! I love Smart Ones as well! 

I wouldn’t go overboard on them because they’re kinda high in sodium and additives, but if you could just replace one meal a day with them, it would help a lot.
