Question by i?music: how much weight can i lose if i follow this diet and exercise plan?
okay so for diet, i’m thinking one day a week of a liquid detox diet where i only drink freshly juiced fruits and veggies (carrot/apple juice, grapefruit/orange/lemon juice, etc) and i’ll have 1 serving of an organic protein shake made with soymilk. then for the other 6 days, i’ll follow the South Beach Diet Phase 1 (cut out all carbs, have only protein and veggies). and i’ll drink a whole bunch of water and take a multivitamin each day.
for exercise, i’ll do a warm-up of about 10 minutes of jogging and 5 minutes of stretching. then i’ll do a 20-minute workout on the “lateral thigh trainer” machine, which is basically a stair master, 15 minutes on the elliptical, 15 minutes doing weight training and toning exercises (using both a bowflex machine and free weights, and doing things with no weights like push ups and crunches). and then a cool down of a 10 minute 4.5mph uphill walk on treadmill and then some more stretching.
how much weight will i lose if i stick to this diet and exercise plan? how long will it take me to lose 20-25 pounds? how can i make the weight come off faster?
if it helps, right now i’m 17 years old, 5’2” and 145 pounds. i’d like to get down to around 115-120 pounds as soon as possible.

Each person is different, so there is really no way to tell how fast you will lose it. Try it for a week, see how much you lose. Ask your doctor if that is a safe amount to lose in a week. From there, try limiting your portions just a bit. Only so much that you stay in a safe weight loss per week. Be sure to get enough liquids, mostly water. I would cut out any sugary and carbonated beverages.
