getting married, need help
Hey guys, I'm 23 yr 6'2", 214 lb asian male.
I am getting married in 3 months, and need serious weight loss. I;m working in intel, and get no time to work out.
But now i am taking time off work and thinking of some serious weight loss routine. Wanted to get some input from experienced people here, that might help me achieve my goal.
I[m open to taking suppliments, so please help me. I'll invite you to my bachelor's party ... haha.

the title made me lol
but seriously, start up with some light weights and cardio if you havent already, steadily lower your caloric intake and if you want to use supplements I would start out by searching for RPN's and Designer Supplements .
Good luck man, and congrats on getting married.

if you are going down the supplement route, be careful. Most weightloss products are 'stimulants'. They could raise your bood pressure, give you insomnia, jitters.
It would be a bad time to have these side-effects when the wife is already giving you all these , haha.
Drink plain water in place of sodas, and eat more fibre (veges, oatmeal) as they make you feel full for a longer period of time.

you should though about this 6 months ago... in just 3 months there's little time to see any gains or losses in your case.. unless you go on the starvation diet

on a more serious note, you should plan to do some serious cardio to drop a few pounds, take some fat loss supplement as well but that alone will not help you to archive your goal.... run in the mornings before work make the sacrifice if you want to change your looks and good luck.

the bottom line is that there's no magic pill that will change your physic over night... or we all would be on it!
you need to have a clean diet, train hard, get some rest to recoup and then repeat

Change your priorities.
Diet / Exercise
I understand being busy and working your butt off... but get up 20 mins early and go running every morning for 20 minutes. Then do pushups and sit ups a few times during the day. There is always time. you just have to prioritize yourself.
Plus building some muscle will make you leaner/ stronger/ and give you a lot of self confidence. Youll feel much better standing on that alter in 3 months.

I'll help you lose 150lbs. Ditch your fiance.j/k. Other than that DIET AND EXERCISE!!!!. And in three months all your gonna lose is about 10-15lbs. If that. But if you do stick with it, this time next year you could be looking good. And remember you will be married the rest of your life so If she really loves you she will help you and support you while you take this journey.

If your body isn't ready to handle the load of things like running (especially on pavement), you're going to do much more damage than you are good. This is one of the main reasons that lifting light weight for a lot of reps has been suggested time and time again for people just starting to get into fitness.
At your weight you must avoid a treadmill or it will destroy your knees. If you do decide to run, have it be on grass. Otherwise, start a weight training plan that will give you light weight vs. increased reps and focus on getting your form proper before adding any extra weight.
Drink lots of water and tune your diet and you should be fine. When I was "big", in 3 months I lost over 30lbs.

Best advice I can give, RUN, change your name, "kill" yourself off and hide! j/k
Like all the other well informed posts above, your not going to change body form over night, and really its about priorities too.
i cant be a desk jocky myself.....

want a quick fix......keto(high protein/fat...nill carbs) take a good multivatamin with it. do 15-25 min of cardio 3-4 times a week. lift high reps 3-5 times a week and drink "plenny" of water and herbal tea. BTW..wheres the bachlor party at?..lol

One thing to remember is that the faster the weight comes off, the less likely it is to have lasting results. So even if you could magically drop your body fat percentage from whatever it is now down to single digits in a month, chances are it wouldn't stick for long. A pound a week is considered fine progress for anyone.
Also, the one thing worth spending money on above all else when it comes to buying things to get in shape is a gym membership. A weight loss related supplement will generally run you between $25-50 for a month's supply, and for that same amount of money you could get a gym membership that will empower you to change your body 10x as much as some over glorified caffeine pill.
Don't let the scale fool you! Remind yourself (and your wife, since she promises reward) that muscle weighs much more than fat, and if you're eating well and working hard, you'll be putting on muscle that you might not even see for months.
I encourage you to eat heartily every time you are hungry, as long as you don't stuff yourself full and the food is very nutritious. Nothing keeps the fat burning like packing on muscle, and muscle needs food. Going hungry will only make you irritable, lethargic, weaker, and after a time will only make you lose the fat slower because you can mislead your metabolism into thinking it's in danger of starving, so it tries it's best to hang on to fat and can even break down its own muscles to use as 'spare parts' to make more fuel.
At first you could have a dr. or a trainer do it for accuracy's sake, but familiarize yourself with calipers if you want to keep track of body fat instead of going by the often deceptive weight scale.
