Why Some People Can Lose 25 Pounds In 6 Weeks

On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m answering the question, can you lose 25 pounds in 6 weeks?

Well, the quick answer is yes.

I’ll share how certain types of people can lose 25 pounds in just 6 weeks, as well as 1 weight loss tip that may help you do this.

However, before I get into this, I’m sure you’ve heard of the short-term fad diets that celebrities use to lose a lot of fat quickly.

These quick fix fad diets help celebrities lose weight faster than the conventional fat loss “safe zone” of 1-2 pounds per week.

For instance, a few weeks ago Jessica and I ran into 50 cent at the gym.

Selfie With 50 cent

We got into a pretty lengthy conversation with him about how he lost 54 pounds for his role in the movie, All Things Fall Apart.

50 Cent told me he lost all this weight by going on a liquid diet, and cardio’ing himself to death.

Yikes.

Should You Follow These Short-Term Hollywood Fad Diets?

Would I recommend that you follow a similar approach as this Hollywood short-term crash diet?

Definitely not.

Here’s why you should not follow short-term fad diets:

a) They are not healthy for your body.

b) It is not sustainable over the long-term.

c) It is not creating new healthy lifestyle habits.

Changing your behaviors to incorporate sustainable healthy lifestyle habits is what our Live Lean TV YouTube channel is all about.

5 New Rules of Live Lean Eating

Can You Lose 25 Pounds In 6 Weeks?

So the question now is, can you lose 25 pounds in 6 weeks, via a more healthy approach?

My answer, like most answers to health and fitness questions is, it depends.

It depends on where you currently are.

For instance, let’s compare Robert and Joe.

Meet Robert

Robert is 5’9, 400 pounds, and is classified as being obese.

He eats nothing but fast food and never exercises.

Based on Robert’s current starting situation, it is possible, and much easier for him, to lose 25 pounds in 6 weeks, then it would be for someone who is in better shape, like Joe.

Meet Joe

Joe who is 5’9, 200 pounds, and is classified as being overweight.

He eats a typical standard American diet and exercises occasionally.

Based on Joe’s current situation, it would be much harder for him to lose 25 pounds in 6 weeks, then it would be for Robert.

Why Some People Can Lose 25 Pounds in 6 Weeks

The reason is simple.

The initial weight loss results, from working out and eating healthy, are much faster and more rapid for someone like Robert, who is obese, versus someone like Joe, who is just overweight.

This is why fat loss results on TV shows like the Biggest Loser are so staggering.

Why The Biggest Loser Contestants Gain All Their Weight Back

The people they use on the show are transitioning from a life of poor eating and never moving their body, to a complete 180 degree turn, of eating low calorie healthy foods, and exercising.

This substantial shock to the body causes rapid weight loss in the form of body fat, water, and possibly muscle.

Once Robert gets closer to Joe’s size, he’ll have a much harder time maintaining that weight loss rate of losing 25 pounds in 6 weeks.

Bottom Line: Can You Lose 25 Pounds In 6 Weeks

Here’s the bottom line Live Lean Nation.

The rate of fat loss is not an apples to apples comparison.

The speed and amount of weight you lose depends on many factors, including your starting point.

Obese people can lose more weight, at a faster rate, than individuals who have less overall weight to lose.

However for most people, the leaner you get, the fat loss process becomes slower.

Simple Live Lean Tip For Overweight People To Lose Weight Faster

If I could give you one sustainable lifestyle and dietary tip that has been proven to help many overweight people lose weight faster, sometimes losing 25 pounds in 6 weeks, it would be this.

Replace all liquids that have calories, with zero calorie drinks in the form of:

You’d be shocked at the change you can make in your body from just cutting out:

These liquid calories quickly add up, and in many cases, create even more hunger in your body.

Thus, you eat more food.

  1. Brad..Im 52 years old and life weight routinely 4-6 times per week. I weigh
    227 pounds and want to weigh 185 lbs. My job is essential light or
    sedentary and i would say does not contribute to any type of weight loss. I
    like all food period. My most difficult thing to achieve is preparing the
    right foods on a daily basis. I am 5’10 227 pounds and according to my
    fitbit scale im am 36% body-fat or BMI. This seems high but could be
    true…not sure. I do know that my gut is 41” and thats literally where all
    my excess weight lies. Can you please provide suggestions on better habits
    in the food category and maybe some suggestions on adding aerbics. How many
    times per week? & days is not realistic, but is it necessary to do that
    much. I love lifting weights and its obvious I am a weight lifter, but i
    would rather be cut up more than pudgy…please help.

    quite a bit of ur workouts and following ur recipes (sweet potato Bolognese
    is def my favourite). With the lifestyle change I’ve managed to get myself

    Thanks for providing the support and I look forward to more videos.

  18. Hey Brad, I’m 40 yrs old 6’2″ 205lbs, I’m eating 2600-2700 calories a day.
    I’m trying to build muscle and burn off some fat, basically trying to body
    recomp. Ideally I would like to get under 200lbs, but no matter what I try
    my body doesn’t want to give up the last few pound of fat!! oh I do 3 Full
    body workouts a week + 1 35min kickbocking/Hiit workouts per week and 1
    light cardio day.. 2 days are rest days. FYI I lost 75lbs in the past year
    and a half.

    stubborn belly fat and the handles sort of. What can I do ?

  20. Hey Brad, great video! My goal is to lose weight (25 pounds) I’m 5’9 175
    pounds.I want to maintain my strength for a powerlifting competition. Can I
    maintain my strength while losing 2 pounds per week?

  21. Great tips man. The key is establishing good habits. It is so much easier
    living lean when you have good habits. Creating those habits can take
    time, but man do they pay off when you do. He is so right, it is a daily
    progress. Watch, study and learn from these two are great steps in
    creating those habits. Thanks for the vid.

  22. Great video, Brad. My current fitness goal is to put on more muscle. I’m
    doing a clean bulk. What is your current fitness goal? You’re already
    shredded, are you just maintaining?
