What is the lowest amount of calories I can intake without harming myself?

I am 5’11 and weigh 240lbs. I want to lose roughly 60lbs in 6 months. Also will I have loose skin after weight loss?

    1200cals and not a penny over.
    MAYBE a little but nothing to fret over.

    You might not get the results you want but if your strict your get pretty close.

      >60lbs in 6 months
      Yeah, a kg a week can be done. eat 1200-1500 like said. try:
      >70g oats(uncooked) --Breakie
      >325g 0% greek yogurt -- lunch
      >90g rice(uncooked) --- Dinner
      >200g meat-- chicken, beef, pork w/e
      >protein shake, pref w/ water, but skim milk is fine if you must 250g. -- before bed or post workout
      Eat that every day, add spinach, or brussel sprouts or bok choy. to the rice and meat.. this is around 1500 cals, you could add maybe a little raspberries or blueberries to the yogurt. Skip the protein shake, or cut the oats for breakfast if you want to drop it down to 1200ish.
      >T.Cut from 160->150 in Dec with this exact diet.

    fat fucks are retarded
    just do a basic calorie restriction of -500 kcal and you will be fine. rapid weight lose will cause loose skin.

      if you're a fatass (you are) you do not want to lose fat as quickly as humanly possible because you'll have loose skin

      do what they say

      Why do fats always want to lose weight as fast as they put it on. 60lbs will take you a year if you want to eat at a pace that you won't hate yourself
      -500 TDEE equates to 1lbs a week, 52 lbs a year. 52lbs
      Any more than that you're entering intermediate dieting numbers and I doubt someone who had to make this thread has that kind of willpower.

      and you will look fucking huge next year. AND you'll still be down 30lb in June so you'll look pretty good at 5'11 210.

      of course you're a resolutionfag so you will give up, fail, and be fat forever.

        I’m doing this because I want to join the military. I’m not getting any younger and at my current spot in life I’m going nowhere. This happening after New Years is pure coincidence.

          I'm just telling you that you will fail if you crash diet. 100%, you won't make it. You will absolutely fail and have nothing to show for it.

          Do what I said if you want to lose the weight, otherwise enjoy weighing 280 in 2024.

          Military is for dumb fags too btw. Have fun fighting for the rich garden gnomes in washington that have zero qualm about sending you to your death so that they can live in penthouses and drive bentleys.

      this. i'm 5'8 and 225 and i've been yo-yoing for years from trying to lose the weight fast. at this point i'm happy to be overweight instead of obese. my goal for the end of the year is 165 and i'm eating between 1750-1800 kcal. after maintaining that weight for a while i might try to go down to 135.

        135? do you like, not work out at all?

        from 465 > 225 I was fine at 5'8 (yeah yeah I was fat as shit, child abuse)

        The second I hit 205, I literally felt like death, there's no fucking way I'd ever hit less than 165 ever in my life, I'm simply to massive, unironically.

        Technically speaking you can lose 30calories per Fat mass without losing muscle assuming you eat 2.2-2.8g/kg lbm, so if you have 50 pounds of fat you can do 1500 cals a day in a deficit. With that being said, 500cals is sustainable, 750 kinda sucks, 1000 is pretty shit, and anything about that is really shit. Someone like you, asking this question, would do maximum 750.

        I was on 1500 for like 6 months and that's when I felt like death at 205, I'd do it again, but the second I hit 205 it's a diet break, then 2000cals.

        I say again because yeah I gained 20, it "was" crash diet related, but it was mostly the fuckiness of 205, I was waking up in the middle of the night in tears from the cramps, I was hungry all day and I had to force feed cause I was repulsed by food, I spent 45 fucking hours in my calorie counting app. Fun times. I was medically forced to stop, I passed out driving. And then when I went to maintence, the flood gates opened. I will never force myself again like that, to hard for to long.

          This was done on untrained individuals overweight individuals, iirc. While OP is the demographic, It's less relevant to lean, ISTbros. just a heads up courtesy of Lyle, and his PSMF book

            What would the rapid fat loss Protocol be then? Do we still not really know? Ik lyles book but in reality you are still at like a max 1300 deficit unless you are a sasquatch no? Ik MARTIN mcdonald has a calculator, how accurate is that?

    I did 1000 calories a day for 5 months and lost 95 pounds. Crashed a few times on busy days but no problems other than that. Went from 255 to 160.

    I am 5'11 and 170lbs with probably 22-25lbs of fat on me.

    You will have loose skin almost 100%. However do not despair. Our frame probably supports up to 225lbs natural. Lift and keep lifting. You can probably fill most of the skin up

    The other anons are correct.
    -500 kcal / day is sustainable and also avoids excess muscle loss.
    make sure to eat enough protein and work out too, otherwise you will lose the muscles you built carrying around 240lbs daily for years which is basically free gainz at this point

    I have done something similar, went from 200 to 150.
    >breakfast: 2 eggs, scrambled
    >lunch: can of v8
    >dinner: 1 serving greek yogurt
    Mind over matter, the hardest part about it will be staving off the hunger. Drink a lot of water, helps with the hunger a bit too.

    zero calories
    you won't start metabolizing your organs until after 3-5 days
    personally I think intermittent fasting is the best
    you'll metabolize body fat after your glycogen stores are depleted and you can still exercise and eat for recovery
    eat clean too
