    Depends on how much you weigh now. My honest advice would be to follow portion control and aim for 15lbs by then.

    I typically drink water BEFORE food, warm beverage AFTER food. no cold beverages with/before/after food. coffee works as a great digestion assistant so two cups a day after your biggest meals will do. running is a great way to lose weight quickly. 20 minutes a day 4-5 days a week. throw in light weight training with high repetitions on your off days from running and you will be golden by Jan.1. also check out bodybuilding.com great advice on proper work out routines

    ps no sugars, or fats, no soda/pop. avoid at all costs! eat veggies and protein and leave 2 days a week for carb cycling (bread/pasta/rice/potato) with small portions and more on veggies and fruits and yogurt smoothies.

    pps: target your weight training on your biggest areas first to get faster results. for example, if stomach is your first target, do more core weight training exercises. good indicator your work out is on track is if you sweat A LOT. meaning high repetitions! and schedule your week accordingly. commit to it and you will do wonders

    What's your target weight? Why not join one of those support groups/diet clubs either a commercial one or in your community at a local hospital,etc?

    What is your incentive for this particular amount on that particular day?

    How tall are you? Do you have a good amount of muscle?

    Agent's going off the wisdom of generally not wanting to exceed 1 - 1.5 pounds lost per week. You can get away with a bit more if you've got an exceptionally high body fat percentage, which is is why I ask the questions above.

    But, speaking to the general person at 210 and wanting to hit 170 in less than three months? 40 pounds is perhaps "doable," but you'll likely destroy pretty much any lean body mass your body can afford to give up and, in the end, you'll most likely look less attractive than you would if you carried the extra weight. Not to mention, you'll be employing methods that aren't sustainable in the long-term and it's highly probable you'll put the weight right back on.
