What's the best way to lose around 10 pounds in a couple of months? (Male, Measurements included)?
I'm about 147 - 148 lbs and 5'7 inches tall. i'm a male, 18 years old with a waist of about 30 inches measured. I've been gradually decreasing about 6 pounds over 2 months for the past 4 months or so but i really need to get down to about 135 - 138 LBS range by May 22nd. (special event). What's the best way to do so? Right now I lift for about an hour and play basketball for cardio for about 2 - 3 more hours so a grand total of a 4 hour workout EVERYDAY. I drink water, and never ever ever ever eat out. Just microwavable vegetables. Although I do eat a lot of cereal.

The first thing you should know : DO NOT GO ON A DIET
It does not work! It'll only make you gain more weight. Trust me, it's proven all over the world
Number two: BE CAREFUL OF WHAT YOU EAT
Foods that are high in sugar or fats should not be taken at all!
examples: fast food, chips, sweets, canned drinks.
take a look at this pyramid:
Take food which only belong to the Bread, Cereal group, Vegetable group, and Fruits group
Meat eggs and milk yoghurt group can be taken, but not all the time. Probably 4 times a week.
DO NOT TAKE OIL SWEET GROUP! NO WAY!
Number three: EAT LESS, EAT MORE TIMES
you can eat up to 5-6 meals a day, BUT each meal is a small amount.
Eat less in quantity, more in frequency. This is very very effective.
Number five: TAKE FOOD WHICH HELPS LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE & CHOLESTEROL
a good food that helps you lower your BP is GRREN APPLE JUICE
but remember, do not take in large amounts on a regular basis, it can cause dizziness.
take about 3 times a week, a cup full will do.
Number five: DO NOT EAT 3 HOURS BEFORE YOU SLEEP
this is a BIG NO NO. your body is not capable of processing your food properly while you are asleep. they will turn into fats.
Number six: EXERCISE
exercise at least 4 times a week, at least 60 minutes per time
Number seven: BE DETERMINED
BE DETERMINED! do not cave into temptation when you see fast food, chips, cookies, sweets, etc etc. Do not touch them! Always persevere to the end!
Number eight: SUPPORT FROM FAMILIES & FRIENDS
Psychology plays a big part too. You'll be more efficient with moral support from friends or families. You'll be motivated to do better :)
Number nine: NO MICROWAVE FOOD, PLEASE
microwaved food contains radiation which can cause cancer to the body.
