Default Is It Possible

I am just starting a low carb diet and i just had a question to ask. I am not badly overweight or anything im currently 215 lbs. and have already lost weight over the past 6 months by just watching what i eat and excercising, but i have decided i would like to loose it quicker and more effectively, so i started watching my carbs. I work with free weights and sit-ups, crunches, push-ups, etc. for usually about 30-45 minutes a night, and run about 2 miles on the tredmill 2 or 3 times a week. I dont work out religiously (on a schedule or anything) but that is as close to a typical week as i can come up with.

Does anyone think it is realistic to loose at least 35 pounds by march 24th, (13 weeks or 92 days). I dont know what to expect from low carbing but i hope this goal is reachable.

FYI. my first day didn't go as well as i hoped, i ate pasta house Chicken Parmigano thinking it wouldn't have many carbs but one website i saw said that would be about 27 carbs (does that sound like too much to anyone else), but kept to no/low carb foods the rest of the day.

well first i will welcome you to the site and low carbing. the actual weight loss that you will incurr will probably not be equal to what you want as you being 35 in 13 weeks it is not impossible but it will be tough.

there are a few things i would reccomend first given that you di exercise intensively make aure that your carb intake is ot under the 30 as you do burn much more than the average person (being last year i did weights for about 60 min daily! I know the bodys requirement is higher) and make sure that your protein intake is above 100 as you will be building muscle. knowing that first you must know that your body will start to sift and build muscle faster taking in enough protein which is good first you will shape up faster (not so much on the scale but in the clothes size) and that will lead to faster and higher metabolism.

I found that with lower carb and high protein i was able to shape up much faster. just be sure that you take your supps!!!
