I am running 2-3 marathons a year, but I couldn't lose any weight, until I cut down considerably on carbs!!
I am overweight(5'10" 220)
I have excluded all bread, potatoes, sweets, etc.
Just sereal on some mornings. Everything else - proteins and veggies.
I have got from 240 to 210 in 5 months
Another good tip - avoid caffeine and try to get at least, 7 hours of sleep.
Sleep deprived people tend to eat more...

Brown is good white is bad... whole wheat, brown rice, NO PROCESSED FOODS.

NO SUGAR, NO CANDY, only FRUIT, fresh NOT CANNED.

SMALL PORTIONS AND INCREASE THE PHYSICAL ACTIVITY.

There are no shortcuts... I know because I've tried that route. Doesn't work. There is no easy way. If you (original poster) REALLY REALLY want it you will do the hard work and get it. Ass cream and plastic wrap will land you in the hospital just as overweight as you are now. Don't do it and I would suggest you find a different recruiter, one who is more interested in helping you instead of this asshat you have now who is just trying to hit his number for the month at the expense of your health.

Right on, bulldogg, any kind of chemical solution for weight loss should be taken with the whole damned salt shaker. Run, jog, swim, do some kind of aerobic exercise to lose weight (running is probably the best, next to swimming). Fresh fruits and vegetables, cut back the meat. If you want a middle ground on wheat bread, that honey-wheat stuff is pretty darn good. Dirty or brown rice is good with a stew or gumbo. Cut back to three meals of small portions and restrict the carbohydrate intake as much as possible.

As for the exercise, go with boris's advice and get a lot of rest- your body probably isn't used to that kind of physical activity, and inadequate rest or improper exercise _will_ damage your body. It is not a fun experience to have a sports injury, be strung out from lack of sleep, and still try to function and get a workout.

Also, watch your electrolyte intake and make sure your diet is good for your exercise type. I can attest that an electrolyte or salt imbalance is NOT fun for swimming or running any distance.

listen to those guys sas3489.

I lost 20 pounds in a week. I was sick though. I did not exercise, but I never did eat a lot at that week. I ate about 3 meals a day. My breakfast was nothing more than tea and a few biscuits. My lunch was just tea again, or just soda, like sprite, and an apple. My dinner was mashed potatoes or just cooked ones. Drink was the same. Oh and I ate yogurt with each meal.
But after all, I lost 20 pounds in one week, just eating that. I did get hungry, but I lived.

Good luck

Yeah, Mighty. I lost ten in two days, just from having the flu and hunting in weather than went from 14 to 60 in a day. Crazy, man. It is not a healthy thing to do.

It may not be healthy, but it works...the not eating thing

I wasn't sick of anything, I just don't eat sometimes

hahaha that's funny.
Cutting down on carbs is a HUGE contributor to weight loss. That's what I cut down on when I gained some weight after my knee injury and it worked a beauty.
