Burn more calories than you consume = loss of weight.

And HIIT > Regular Cardio ANYDAY. But with right diet and regular weight training, you don't necessarily need any cardio unless you are looking out for your cardiovascular health.
QFT. Took the words right out of my mouth.

Don't be afraid of "bulking up" getting bigger. You have to eat big to grow big.

Train with weights, eat at a deficit, add in a few HIIT sessions a week and you'll look much better when you hit your goal than if you stuck with just dieting and 30+min of SS cardio.

2 months --> 8 weeks --> 16 pounds

So yes, your goal does seem achievable!!!
I agree, 2 pounds per week is healthy. Just remember that if you lose weight to fast, you would definitely gain it back. What you need is self- discipline, eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly.

I swim for half-hr first thing and before breakfast 5 days a week and drink green tea with my breakfast.
Appreciate swimming is not for everyone (as some people don't like/cannot swim), but it takes less strain on the bones, I can vary the intensity of each length bit like HIIT training in the water, and most of all it really builds a nice toned upper body all round.

I lost 20lbs in two months with just diet adjustment. No abnormal routines o excervises. I'm 6'2" was 220 and dropped to a trim 200.

Kept my caloric intake to 2200 they ought the day, and I didn't count my dinner, but it was a small, healthy lean meats and veggies.

Snacking on a bit every couple hours or so, and a gallon of water a day.

Easy peasy. After a while I didn't miss my "normal food" lol.

I went from 160 to 151 in 2 months, but it's hard for me to lose any more. Maybe about 3 more lbs of fat.

well i don't really care about weighing myself but this pic right here was back in early february. Before and after of a 3.5 week period. I did splurge once in a while but the key is a lot of water, just eat clean, and train like a f*cking beast.

Eat complete proteins such as avocado's and hemp seeds. Avoid processed foods, and buy organic if possible.
