To lose 60 pounds in four months, only consume 1,050 to 1,200 calories each day, improve your eating habits, go on a diet, and exercise for at least one hour daily. These lifestyle changes should result in 3 to 5 pounds lost each week.
- Monitor your calorie intake
Keep track of the number of calories you consume each day, and try to keep it under 1,200 but over 1050. Writing down everything you eat in a food journal helps with accountability and progress tracking.
- Improve your eating habits
Avoid snacking when you are bored. Remove any tempting unhealthy foods from the home. Eat three meals each day, and keep snacking to a minimum. Drink plenty of water, and try to fill up on fresh vegetables when possible.
- Change your diet
Avoid eating foods with fat from meat or dairy products. Try to cut starches and added sugars from your diet. Some healthy food choices are fruits, vegetables, skinless poultry breasts, seafood and lean meats.
- Exercise each day
Do cardiovascular and strength training exercises for at least one hour daily. Cardiovascular exercises burn calories quickest. Do a workout routine that keeps you sweating the entire time. Always warm up first, and build intensity at a moderate pace. Consult a doctor if you are obese or have not been active for an extended period.
