/fit/ be honest with me...
I've been a fat shit all my life, and my dad is finally kicking me out of the house. I'm 18, 6'0 and weigh 272 pounds. My only hope now is the military. to make something out of myself. And my dad is giving me 3 months to get out of the house.
So is it achievable? is it possible to lose enough weight to join? I think the maximum weight for someone of my height is 210.
If possible, could someone tell me exactly what I need to do to achieve that? I'm willing to do whatever it takes at this point.
You fucking dumb shit, if you want life advice don't come on here.
But to answer your question, of course it is. But it'll take you at least a year to do, and you're going to get a shitload of loose skin out of it.
To lose that weight over 3 months you would have to have a 2400 cal deficit a day. Now, someone your weight can survive off nothing but water and vitamin supplements so yes it is possible to drop the weight in that time I don't recommend doing that though as usually it is done with medical professionals checking you for deficiencies every so often and I doubt you can afford that. I'd say 9 months is realistic for getting there without fasting.
I'd try and bargain with him that as long as you can document your weight loss and physical training and money accumulation he extends it to at least 6 months and you work on earning enough money to support yourself the last 3 months of the time it will take.
same anon back again, don't take the chance m8. You can find odd jobs to make some cash, find a friend who you can crash with for a month or two. Upping it from 3 to 5 months would change the max cals you could have from 150 a day (requires medical supervision to be safe) to 900 or so (vitamins + veggies + lean meat + lots of water, is doable without health complications).
Your dad wants you to succeed, this is tough love. If you show progress you can get an extension. Have a written plan with goals and deadlines to show him.
You realize the military won't take you if you're over a certain body fat, I think it was 22% for dudes and 33% for chicks. So uh no, the military won't help you in three months. They'll tell you to lose the weight and come back. If you're able to drop fucking 70 pounds to get to the maximum allowed weight in three months, spoiler alert, you didn't need the military.
