Really depends on your current weight and state of fitness as to whether it's achievable, the more healthy and obese you are the easier it will be to lose the weight through exercise and sensible diet. I'd imagine 1 stone in the time would be far more achievable for the average overweight person.

do your groceries in the head shop

seriously though, 28 pounds in 21 days - dont even try, you will most likely destroy your metabolism and worsen your bodycomposition immediately after you stop dieting.

I would be shocked to see two stone gone in three weeks.

Bit of a hypothetical though; they say that when you stop the diet your body will end up putting more weight back on that you originally had. Would this also be the case with someone who is very overweight/obese?


Is two stone actually plausible for three weeks? Surely you'd need to be spending a lot of time doing interval cardio efforts every day along with a diet with a huge calorie deficit?

I'd imagine that prior to your three week effort, you'd need to have been doing very little physically, and taking in a lot more calories than necessary? If you were already exercising regularly and eating (even partly) properly... You surely wouldn't see such a huge weight loss so quickly?!

2 stone is 28 pounds, so you're talking about losing roughly 9 pounds a week. That isn't possible unless you starve yourself. Trying to lose this much weight in such a short period of time will destroy your metabolism. With so little food, your body will go into 'starvation mode' (not sure of the official name) but basically any food you eat will be stored as fat, therefore once you stop dieting you will pile on the weight, and be even fatter than you started out as.

Only realistic way to do it is with one of these.



Loosing that much weight in 3 weeks is not healthy and shouldn't even be considered.

Trying to lose that much weight in the space of time is neither possible or advisable! Why 3 weeks???? Have you not been trying to lose the weight before now?

You'd need to create a calorie deficit of about 4,600kcals per day in order to lose two stone in 21 days. If I recall correctly, that would involve jogging for about 5-6 hours a day. Sounds mad.

Why do you need to lose 2 stone in three weeks? There are times when it might be necessary to do things which are not necessarily the healthy option to meet a certain weight, but if so, you have to accept that the weight will go back on as soon as you stop.

You definitely can't lose two stone of fat in three weeks.

PS. I know someone who has to be a certain weight by a certain date in order to be allowed to legally adopt her foster child. For something like that, you might take a few dirty short cuts.

not that im recommending you do this nor guaranteeing it would even accomplish the quite unrealistic goal your trying to achieve nevertheless if my life depended on it i would live on clean protein sources chicken,tuna,egg whites, whey protein small servings 6 times a day,minimum fat/carbs(ie none) i'd also supplement with a good vitamin/mineral,fiber and also caffeine to try get through some workouts which would be absolutely gruelling caffeine also speeds the metabolism,in my opinion this would make for the most rapid fatloss but as stated once you start eating properly again(ie.carbs/fats) it would come back faily fast...y 3 stone and why 2 weeks?? surely you would be happy with a 1..1 and a half stone in 3 weeks??

There are too many can't do answers here.
The most reasonable suggestion would be to buy a Delorean, go back in time by about 15 weeks and follow a controlled diet with exercise and aim to lose around 1.5lbs a week in a safe fashion.
