I am 80 kg 5’3″. I wanna lose 20 kg in 5 months with a goal to lose 4 kg in each month. Pleasssssse help me out. Mehreen. [via Ask Questions]
Your current weight is 176 pounds. You want to lose 20 kilograms in 5 months, and you want to lose weight at a rate of 4 kilograms a month. Can you lose 20 kilograms in less than 6 months? I think so. To lose 20 kilograms in 5 months, you need to lose 44 pounds or 8.8 pounds a month, which means that you need to lose 2.2 pounds a week.
The good news is that your weight-loss goal is realistic. It is reasonable to expect to lose about 2 pounds a week, assuming you follow a diet and exercise program that works for you, which brings me to my next point.
Since you have not provided any information about your current eating habits, I am not sure I can help you beyond giving you some general suggestions. So, if you do not know how to lose weight at all, you need to educate yourself a bit on this subject. Specifically, take a look at How Do I Lose Weight for Good? and How to Lose Weight in Days. In addition, you will probably find Healthy Breakfast Choices helpful, so read that as well.
Generally speaking, to lose about 2 pounds a week, you need to give your body what it needs to function properly. In other words, eat balanced meals that contain protein, complex carbohydrates and good fats. Do not eat simple crabs (also known as sugar), if you crave sugar, eat some fruit.
Exercise. If you can, go to the gym. If you cannot, do not worry about it, one of the best exercises for weight loss is walking. Start walking for at least 30 minutes 3 times a week. If you feel refreshed and energized after your walk, gradually start walking more, say, 45 minutes 3 times a week, or walk for 30 minutes 4-to-5 times a week.
