20 pounds in 10 weeks Curt? Is that even possible without losing lbm?
How you planning to go about it? Standard calories deficit or low carb/refeed?
I'll be 48 in August and dropped that same amount at age 45 using an Ellington Darden crash diet. lol
Designed for two weeks, I followed it for that little bit over two months. Lost two pounds ever week for ten weeks.
Yes, I lost lbm, but I don't have much to begin with, so it's almost a non-factor.
I jumped big time from the end of the starvation cut to a few weeks after ending the diet.
At the end of the cut:
October 31, 2007 @ 149 lbs., 6'1"
January 5, 2008 @ 186.5 lbs.
I was doing a full-body workout three times per week plus daily cardio. Near the end I was doing double cardio sessions of varying intensity. I'd spend 45 minutes to an hour on the treadmill, ten minutes at 3.0 speed, 3 minutes at 6.0, 5 minutes at 4.0, 2 minutes at 6.5, and so on.
Blogged it on BodySpace. My account is curt_james on that site, fwiw.
