I'm looking to lose about 200 kilos by next summer for a few reasons. Background being, I recently broke my ACL and had surgery on it in the summer. I haven't been able to get back into sports or any significant cardio since and have put a lot of weight on as a result, going from 90 kilos to 110 in a year. I never noticed the weight increase until recently when some of my clothes started getting a bit tighter and some don't even fit me any more sadly. I know losing it is a lot harder then gaining and was wondering whether any one had ideas or tips that could help me get back to my regular weight by next June/July time. My plan is:
. Start on the 5:2 diet and restrict myself to below 2,000 calories for the other 5 days.
. Go gym 3 times a week. I recently started going and usually do around 20 odd minutes of walking on the treadmill and the same on the bike, and then some time on the weight machines.
I'm not sure what else there is I can do until I can start running again which is still 3-4 months off. Are there any other supplements or diets I can go on that would help me? And is my goal even realistic? I have read a few articles on here of people also doing the same but they aren't very in depth with detail.
