My husband needs to lose alot of weight. He wants to join the airforce and for his height he needs to be at a maximum of 180 pounds well he is close to 240. Thats 60 pounds over the maximum. He is dieting and exercising but he is not really loosing the weight. He only has 2 more years left to join. I know that seems like a lot but its really not when you think about the amount of weight and the amount of time. Any advise on what I can do for him? He started dieting and so far has lost 7 pounds but I know he is frustrated that he allowed himself to get that big knowing he wanted to join the air force.Answer Question

That is such bs, michiganmom116. He needs protein so "no meat" is out. Fish is best. Colorful veggies and fruit are vital to good health. I agree with no soda, coffee or juices. Weight training is important bc muscles burn up fat and cardio is for CARDIO NOT WEIGHT LOSS. People who lose weight without building muscle mass is pulling weight from muscle as well as fat, which isn't healthy. Eating more but smaller meals is a good idea. Tell him to eat items low on the glycemic index and drink lots of water.
