We've been doing a biggest loser contest at work, and next Tuesday is the final weigh in. I've been leading the entire contest (started in January at 323 lbs - down to 282 lbs). But since we're doing it by percentage lost and not actual poundage, a little scrawny dude is threatening to snatch my victory from me.
How can I lose a whole bunch of weight between now and our Tuesday morning weigh-in?
I'm 30 years old and 6'3", so I'm not incredibly worried about health effects over this short burst. I plan to resume my new healthy lifestyle after the weigh in, but looking to get crazy this last 6 days or so.
No illegal drugs. No dipping tobacco (that's what wrestlers in high school did to shed a few pounds to make weight, and my wife forbids it). To date I've been doing cardio for 30 minutes a day, and limiting myself to 1500 calories. Thought about cutting off all intake of solids or liquids for 24 hours before weigh in, but I've been told if your body goes into 'starvation mode', it stops burning as many calories.
So, lay it on me - what should I be doing? There's a grand on the line here.
