By then it's only possible to lose like 10 pounds of actual fat maybe 15, but what you can lose is alot of water weight. Depending on your current diet(Standard Junk Diet) you can easily make that weight by cutting out all processed foods and keeping your salt use to a minimum. If man made it stay away from it and you'll get down to that. Also don't take creatine or any supplement that makes you retain alot of water.

*cough* bull shit *cough* First off he can lose a lot more than 10 pounds of fat in that period. Secondly creatine will not be a determining factor for him in that period of time.

Coach, I need to know what you know. Are you saying it's possible to lose more than a pound of fat a week while sparing muscle?

With proper diet and programming you can stretch normal limits. Then again most can't do the two combined correctly without help.

I can measure my macronutrient intake to the gram if necessary. Hell, I already do. I'd be appreciative if you could share your methods/principles. Right now, for fat loss, I aim for a 3500 calorie deficit per week, following the carb cycling diet by Thibaudeau on T-Nation.com. I saw good results from it, spared/gained a lil muscle and lost fat, but I pushed it for too long and went catabolic.

A 3500 calorie deficit will yield a 1 pound weight loss. So you're gonna have to step up the diet a bit as far as calorie deficit. I'm not an expert but i have lost weight successfully in the past and i lost 52 pounds in 12 weeks. I went on a 1400-1800 calorie a day diet cut out all "bad" foods and worked out 5 days a week. I guess my point is if you can run a high deficit and keep enough in the tank to get through your workouts and keep the strenght up you can lose some big numbers weight wise. Good luck tou you and i hope you do well in your tourney

It's def. possible, but the amount of fat/muscle you lose is a matter of your research and ethic
