Question:
I'm about 100 lbs overweight, I was wondering what is the fastest way to lose weight?
Answer:
The fastest way to lose weight is to go into a state of ketosis. This means your carbohydrate intake in the course of the day is minimal, similar to the Adkins diet. The second way is to cut back back on your fats, your intake being moderate of carbs and protein. I like to call it the 60-40 diet. 60% carbs, 40% protein. The grams of fat ideally below 30 grams of fat per day. studies show that at the end of 12-18 months low fat or low carb diets end with the same results. But I have found in my years of experience with people, that the low fat approach is a more sustainable life style change.

Those of you that want to be 3 weight classes bigger than you are now the difficulty of this will be determined by your genetics. If you measure your wrist and it is 7" or lower you will be considered small boned, 7"-7 1/2" will be medium, anything above 7 1/2" large boned. In technical terms this would be considered ectomorph, mesomorph and endomorph. Nature is never in complete black and white which means that there can be an overlapping of characteristics of one body style into another. In 25 years of training people wrist size has been the greatest indicator of how to train that person than any other factor. Under 7" generally will be very slim, muscular, very low body fat. A very typical look would be 5'8" 140 lbs. This type person will never be very large but with sufficient calorie intake and heavy weight training can hope to be 175-190 lbs. depending on voracity. 7-7 1/2" wrist of which I happen to be typically can go for a large number of years without much variation in body weight. I've been between 208 and 211 lbs. for the last 25 years and I train both powerlifting and body building. Medium bone structure men like myself have a very hard time putting on tons of mass without the big belly. Training for this body style would consist of persistance meaning 4-5 days a week perferable to maintain a consistant body weight. Over 7 1/2" is your big boned boys that can put on mass by looking at weights. These are the ones that can gain 3 weight classes just by eating alot more calories and intense training. On the down side these are also the ones that can be fat schlubs if they don't train regular. So in closing try to understand the tools nature gave you and make the most of it.
