I have exactly 5 weeks until my wedding. I am completely out of shape and have a very painful lower back problem that I cannot afford to get looked at because I don't have insurance that will pay for it. I am 36 years old and sitting at about 250lbs when my ideal weight is between 185-200. I know I wont be able to drop 50 in 5 weeks but I'd like to try to crack off at least 20-30lbs if possible.
I am looking for advice on workouts, diet and possible supplements that would help me achieve this goal. Note: Because of heart issues, I cant handle the stimulants that make me jittery or nervous.
Starting today I am cutting my calories and dropping carbs (basically cutting out bread, pasta and rice and limiting to just veggies) and starting a cardio program of about 1-2 hours/day (split into 2 sessions). I'd like to use meal replacements if possible just so i dont have to worry about preparing foods, but whatever.
Of course I know this isnt teh right way to do this and I plan on getting onto a more normal plan after the wedding but I want to look good for my photos. I'm open to fasting, detox, or any other proven method. Any help and advice would be great.
