    Default lose bodyweight fast? like in 3-4 monthes

    Hey..I need to meet a height/weight requirement for a possible job...

    I've always focused on lifting heavy to get muscular and I'm in decent shape but I'm about 40-45 pounds off the target weight...need to drop it down in about 3-4 months.

    Other then doing cardio, instead of lifting heavy..does anyone have any ideas?

    I've looked into the crossfit/gymjones but I don't really have the money to pay for a program..

    40 or 50 pounds off target? Yeah, no.

    I was once told of this crazy trick where you burn more calories a day than you consume but it never seen plausible. Have you requested a weight test on the moon? If you're in 'decent shape' you should know that. Do Crossfit. It's fun. Gym jones would chew you up.

    Google "The Four Hour Body" by Tim Ferris. I bought the book and did the diet plan, stopped lifting heavy, mixed in more circuit and cardio workouts and managed to drop a little over 10 pounds a month.

    After seeing the results, a few friends have borrowed my book and tried it out for themselves.

    Cut out all carbs and increase protein. No flour, pasta, bread etc.
