What is a healthy work out schedule for someone to lose weight fast?

I am 280lbs and about 5’8 and am wanting to join the military and serve my country, but I am currently vertically challenged. I can use any and all help you could give. Also, any advice on healthy foods that do not taste terrible would be great.

    30-60 minutes of cardio like running 5 times a week
    30 minutes of strength building exercises like lunges, squats and push-ups.
    Think green first and lean fat meats.
    Fats does not necessarily make you fat but sugar sure does so have as little sure intake as possible.

    I know about what you’re looking for. I was 250 lbs, 5’7”. I’m now at 140 lbs, working towards 130.

    Joining the military is more than weight, so look up what the fitness requirements are for the branch you’d like to join. For example, when I was getting in shape my sister had just gotten out of the AF basic training. She said that one of the requirements was to run a mile and a half in 12 minutes- so that was one of my goals. Find out how many sit-ups and push-ups, etc and start practicing.

    If you can’t jog, start out walking, and do jogging intervals. I would (and still sometimes) do 4 minutes walking, 6 minutes running, 4 minutes walking, 6 minutes running. Or other times I walk 1/4 mile and run 3/4 mile. Eventually I worked my way up to the point where I could run 5 miles non-stop. Just start out with what you’re able to do and push yourself a little at a time.

    As for foods, it just depends on what you like, and learning to like healthy stuff. Some of my favorite foods include my protein shake (chocolate whey powder, skim milk, 1 raw egg), bananas, apples, baby carrots, peas, broccoli, and all manner of fruits and veggies, string cheese, plain low-fat yogurt, almonds, sardines in mustard, soup (Campbell’s Select Harvest), Lean Cuisine meals, eggs… and pretty much everything else.

    Basically when it comes to food you have to ask yourself “Is this something that will help me reach my goal?” Remember, nothing tastes as good as it feels to be fit.

    Do an experiment and limit your food intake for 30 days to the produce section from the grocery store — fruits and veggies only. Mix things of different colors red: beets, swiss chard, cranberries, orange: yams, carrots, squash and green: broccoli, cabbage, greens, cauliflower, etc.

    Stay away from meat, dairy, and anything that comes in a box. For complete proteins, eat only egg whites, and drink non-fat milk or non-fat cottage cheese.

    After a month your palate will change, and you will actually taste the sweetness in vegetables like carrots and sweet potatoes. If you eat fast foods you will be able to taste the chemicals, etc. It’s an eye-opener.
