I have 2 months to lose 10-15 pounds.

I'm a rower, solid muscle.14/5'4/147 pounds.The season starts in 2 months and i have to lose atleast 10 pounds. i am doing the special K diet to lose hopefuly 6 pounds while working out and running daily. i need your suggestions on working out and dieting. i'm used to working out hard but dieting is not my area. i need to loose fat but i don't wat to build much muscle because that wil only make me heavier. so really ... i need to tone up.. what do you do.??

Scarsdale Diet, 2 weeks on 2 weeks off. It's a medical diet for diabetics and is a low glycemic index diet. You drop weight fast but it is a VERY strict diet. I lost 10 pounds when I did it.

Dr.Fuhrman, "Eat to Live". First couple of weeks are hard, though.

Run Forest, Run!!!

If you cut your calories to 1200 a day and start running, you are going to lose weight. Do what you can at first. Running and walking until you can build up to running most of the time at least until you can get up to 30 minutes or more. This has worked for me every time. You will probably hate it at first, I know I did, but get an ipod and put in your most motivational music and "just do it". I know there are a lot of good books available, but the bottom line is always the same: discipline. How motivated are you to do what it takes to lose the weight? Write down your target weight(goals) and your game plan. Share it with others that will encourage you and even ride you when you're not following through. Set your goal date and start today.

Can you talk to your coach about this, or other rowers? The last thing you want to do is jeopardize your fitness for some weight - that won't help things!

I'd say stick to the food guide but at the lower end, and choose lower calorie/higher volume items. Like, the Canada food guide suggests 5-12 grains, 5-10 fruit and veggies, 2-3 proteins, and 3-4 milk products.

For grains, cereal is good but I'd go for one that has more fiber than Special K and is whole grain or has protein. (My cereal of choice is Kashi Go Lean but others are good too), whole wheat bread, pitas, etc. One serving is around 1 cup of cereal, half a pita, or 1 slice of bread.

For produce, eat more veggies than fruit but even fruit is not really ever THAT high calorie. But you can eat TONS of non-starchy vegetables for so few calories!

For protein, I'd stick with 3 servings but make them lower fat options, like beans, chicken breast (no skin!), and soy options.

For dairy, 3 is easily all you need and go for low-fat dairy instead of higher fat ones, and watch the sugar in yogurt too.

If you're doing cardio as well and stick to those amounts of servings, you will lose weight. Generally if you eat the minimum amounts, it works out to 1300-1600 calories and that's quite low for someone your size who is training, so I wouldn't advise going any lower. If you lose the weight super fast, you can add some more grains or fruit. Also, if you are exercising a lot, it might be better to eat 2000 calories and you could still probably lose weight.

I have diet plans from 1200-1800 calories. If you are interested, PM and I can give them to you. They are very strict diets from the makers of muscletech products.

Help me pay my bills, buy my stuff please!!

i would just clean up ur diet and cut out simple sugars. also maybe try to eat slower burning carbs and try to eat them earlier during the day. examples are whole grain products-breads/crackers-sweet potatoes, oatmeal, and brown rice. good luck!
