Yeah, that exercise, better eating, and cutting down on drinking is the way to an early grave!

you [only] have to do 3 things to lose weight:

rev. up your metabolism (walking/ jogging)
give up alcohol (slows down your metabolism)
use common sense when eating (portion control, food choices)

Yup. I would really like to have the bet be for more money but that's all the action he would give me. I know the more I bet the more of a favorite I am. However, as I get older and mature more, I am finding myself much more motivated anyways to get healthy and look better. I think I would have started this soon without the bet anyways.

Precisely! Even if I barely lose the bet, I'll be better off for it anyways!

It'd be hard to do but I could lose thirty pounds if I stopped working out and starved myself for months. I gotta cut after bulking but losing fat would not be the problem but the muscle that would be the trouble. Couldn't pay me to lose 30 pounds muscle as hard as I work for gains. Whats the point unless you're fat?

You should definitely be lifting weights because you lose muscle when you run. Also unless you are fat fat like ~20%, losing more than 2 pounds of week isn't healthy at all.

man some of the responses in this thread are exactly why weight loss and gain prop bets are sooo juicy. Do you guys realize how much he can lose in water weight alone before a weight in? Its ALOT. It would be stupidely easy to lose 20 pounds over 3 months with just diet and exercise alone, and dropping 10 pounds of "extra" weight before a weigh in is so funny its not even worth arguing about.

Which is why if you are going to bet people on a weight loss bet, you should make it % body fat loss, not poundage.
