Hi my name is Courtney and I want to lose 30 pounds in 1 month. Can I lose 30 pounds in 1 month? Is it possible? Can you tell me how to lose 30 pounds in 1 month? ALSO I go to the gym like 3 times a week. Can u tell me what should I do at the gym and also what should I eat? If I can’t lose 30 pounds I will just try to lose 20 pounds in 2 months or something close to that. My weight is 160 pounds and I really want to LOSE my FAT. [via Ask Questions]
The short answer is no, you cannot lose 30 pounds in 1 month? You should be able to lose 30 pounds in 3 months, however, which is a much better weight-loss goal to have in mind. What is wrong with trying to lose 30 pounds in 1 month? To do so, you will need to lose 7.5 pounds a week, which is almost as unrealistic as trying to lose 10 pounds in a few days. Yes, some people claim it is possible to lose 10 pounds in 3 days, but they probably also think that drinking tomato juice burns fat.
What should you eat to lose weight? I think it is more important to focus on what you should not eat. I do not know anything about your current diet or why you have gained weight in the first place, but since a typical Western diet is high in sugar and overly processed foods, you probably need to reduce your consumption of simple carbohydrates and fast food.
While I think that most diet detoxes are completely useless and even dangerous, sugar detox is an exception. Try it. In short, here is what you need to do in my opinion: Reduce your consumption of sugar and other simple carbohydrates, try not to eat fast food and other processed foods. What can you eat? Steamed vegetables, salads, fruit, lean proteins, whole grains, and healthy fats.
