Absolutely.

But do it safely. Do 30 mins of cardio 4 times a week. Cut out snacks and sugar. Try to cut out some carbs, like white bread, rice, etc. You can DEFINATELY do it.

I def think its possible, you just need to be very strict with your junk food and exercise daily.

Try Nutri System

Look at the Nutri System thread in the diet and fitness forum

Nutri System is extremely expensive. With a little excercise and cutting out the sugars and bad carbs, you can lose the weight. It just takes some motivation and good cardio.

No its really not expensive at all, if you add up what you spend on food shopping weekly, your take out, going out to dinner, your lunches if you grab from deli, N/S is very cheap! 289 for a months worth of breakfast, lunch , dinner AND dessert is a bargain. I used to spend 135 on average a week on food shopping, 10 bucks for lunch in woodbury for a bagel, snapple and pirate bootys popcorn, then dinner going out easy 80- 100+.

I think it also depends on your current weight...

I cant see spending 289 just for myself a month on food. There are much more effective ways to lose weight. You have to be conscious of what you eat. I think if it works for you, great. But I know how to control my portions, get excercise, and cook meals that dont cost me a fortune. I cook for DH and I, and there is no way I spend more than 200 dollars a month on food. We do not order take out, and I always bring my own lunch to work, as does my husband. We only go out to dinner once a month, IF that.

Like I said, if it works for you, thats amazing. I just dont want ready made meals for breakfast lunch and dinner.

How do you NOt spend 200 or more a month on food and you cook- do you have a meat? on average meat cost about 4.00 and Im being generous x that by lets say 30 days is 120.00. Do you eat produce? bag of lettuce on average 2.89 = 86.70 that is not cheap either. Fruit? expensive too a lb. Cereal? on average 3-4 a box. Milk? Oj, butter, eggs, bread, it adds up real fast.
Can you post what you eat for a month that cost under 200? I would love to know, you may have a good budget control that we can benefit from.

Its not amazing to have lost weight on any diet, it really does work, you can go on that forum and read it. As for the ready made meals is not what you think- its the same as eating a WW entree, lean cuisine, etc.

the food taste good, for more insight go to the official nutrisystem thread on the diet and fitness forum, there is also a thread on LIW . there are some better than others just like preference on the frozen dinners. but overall it does really taste good, surprisingly!

Re: Is it possible to lose 30lbs in 5 months?

Hey, I am not putting it down. Like I said, if it works for you, then great. We do not eat cereal btw. Is the 289 a month just for you to be on Nutri System, or for you and DH? My husband and I eat a meat and a veggie every night, and sometimes another side.

Again, if it works for you, good for you. I like to cook my own meals, excercise, and I do not eat junk food.

I go food shopping once a month. I would say between food, and other things such as toiletries, laundry detergent, household cleaners, etc, I spend only about 400.00 a month.
