Shedding 60 pounds in 5 months is a highly challenging goal but it is doable for people who follow a proper diet and exercise plan. For this you will have to consider your present fitness level and work out a physical activity and diet plan. However, you will have to make a lot of changes to your current lifestyle to achieve this goal.
To lose weight you need to eat less and move more. When you do this, it creates a calorie deficit and you turn up to fat storage for energy which leads to weight loss. Experts say that making calorie deficit from 500 to 1000 calories per day is safe and recommended. At this rate you will be able to lose from 1 to 2 lbs per week which leads to 4 or 8 pounds of weight loss per month. This takes you closer to your weight loss goal though not the exact amount of weight you have to lose. Weight loss planners like Nutrisystem and Medifast provide weight loss from 1 to 2lbs per week through their well planned diet meals. To follow Nutrisysterm, you do not need any doctor’s recommendation and it is very convenient to follow. However, Medifast requires doctor’s recommendation as their diet meals are relatively low in calories which the dieters have to cope up with.

Reducing 1250 calories from your diet on a daily basis is not possible. Women have to consume minimum of 1200 calories per day and men around 1500 calories. If you have to go lower than these limits then you will have to follow a medically supervised diet plan. You can cut back on calories and simultaneously expend calories through exercise to create the calorie deficit of 1250 and reach your goal.
