I lost 105 pounds in 3 mo

Never attempt this, or will I ever do it again. I was 17 years old and before my 18th Birth-Day I accomplished the impossible. Yes I went from 295 pounds to 195 pounds in 90 days. My High-School Foot-Ball Coach was disappointed to say the least. As lineman/defensive back 6'2" @295lbs made me a prime candidate for collage / pro. But at a early age and after 7 plus years I hung up my gear. Today I can walk, run on occasion but live each day without pain. Most Athletic people suffer from some irritation from an old avenging wound. My advice from an old jock to another, find a soft sport to partake in. Live well.

Our group is new, we hope to share incite and open mind. We wish everyone good health and peace.

From the Earth's Care Group, have a good day!

100 pounds in 90 days? I find this hard to believe. How did you do it and hows your health after losing that much weight so fast? Personally I think your full of crap. Men can lose weight fast but even that is totally extreme and virtually impossible. I will have to ask my PT just for shits and giggles.

Please enlighten us....

Naw, he was young and those things rarely happen to such young people and plus he doesn't mention anything about being sick. I got the feeling that he did it over the summer from what he says. I agree I think he's full of bs.

A defensive back/prime candidate for college/pro ball is going to be 295 pounds of muscle- where is 100 pounds even going to come from?

i like the line "find a soft sport to partake in" at the end. i was a swimmer - a "soft" sport. however, i destroyed both shoulders and a knee by swimming too hard for too long. my advice? practice your sport softly.

When I was 17 I lost 90 lbs in 3 months.
I didn't eat. Maybe a couple hundred calories a day.
However at the end of the three months I was very sickly, though still overweight and had to go to the dr. He said if I was 30 years old I would be dead. A persons body just can't take it.
And I kept the majority of it off for 4 years.
Even to this day I can lose weight very quickly when I watch what I eat. Some people are just like that.

I don't recommend anyone losing that much weight too fast because for one its not healthy, and another thing you'll be worrying about after you do get that weight that fast is the extra skin. Generally a healthy weight loss should be 1 pound a week. Also by eating that amount of calories your losing muscle much you need, so its not all fat. So by the time you eat normally again you'll probobly gain all the weight back since you've lost precious muscle mass needed to boost your metabolism. People need to lose body fat not weight. So I absolutely don't recommend it at all.

Ok PP exactly HOW did you lose 11 lbs in 4 days?! I am trying my best to stick to a low carb diet and have lost only an average of 1-2 lbs a week! I know I need to step up the exercise but with working full time, going to college online, and five kids it is very very difficult to work in anything else than what I am doing now... Please share your secret...

From reading the original post, it appears the OP is saying, don't do this. Sounds like he is working on finding ways to live that may involve longevity. The headlines do catch your attention though...but the message is the whisper of sanity. Find ways to live that promote life.

Holy moley!
I do believe him- as a young teenager and as a guy, that amount of loss is believeable. And him being at a higher weight also contributed. It seems like he mimicked a gastric bypass patient's caloric restriction without the surgery.
But as he said, it's not safe. The GB people are under doc's care!

When I was sixteen, I was overweight ('5"2 and 165 pounds) and ended up losing thirty pounds in five weeks. I WAS sick, however, with mono and complications following the illness. I think younger bodies respond quickly and intensely to starvation, which is what I assume the OP is implying that he did to himself.

When I was 27, I lost 80lbs in 3 months, and I NEVER starved myself. BUT - it takes a lot of discipline, and a 24/7 commitment.

Because you can't, doesn't mean it can't be done

I can vouch that it's senior year of hs I lost a pound a day for 3 months after starting at just over 300 lbs. it was not easy and required 1.5+ hrs of cardio and weight training in conjunction with cutting calories, but at least for the young, it is possible. I later put some back on, but the the new lifestyle mastered by a change like this allowed my to relose the weight and keep it off for 3 yrs, still a lil overhang but that's about it. Results: 3 years, -120 lbs
