Will running 2 miles a day/eat healthy help me lose weight fast?

I decided to run 2 miles everyday/work out for at least an hour and eat yogurt for breakfast, tuna sandwich on multigrain bread, and lean meat (like boiled chicken breast for dinner)

My goal is 40lbs in 2 months? Can that be done with that style?

Currently 160lbs 5’5″ 🙁
I also take a multivitamin/fish oil

    yes
    for ipod download an app called lose it
    it keeps track of all calories burnt and consumed
    set your goal and how long and it will calculate all the stuff u need

    probably, diet and excersize is the key to losing weight. but you have to find a lifestyle you can maintain or you will put the weight back on

    YOU CAN DO IT! Just remember that even when you eat healthy you should still eat less too (only if you eat more than you should).

    To lose a pound of fat, you need to burn 3,500 more calories than you consume . . . Losing 40 pounds in two months would mean you would have to exercise for over an hour a day and eat literally nothing..

    You only want to burn 1-2 pounds a week, at most.. Otherwise it will start to become unhealthy, but yeah, a diet and exercise will help with weight loss.

    Healthy weight loss is no more than 2 lbs a week. I think you should add at least five servings of fruit/vegetables, which will help fill you up so you’re not starving, but they’re low calorie and they have fiber: this diet you’re suggesting has almost no fiber. Also, if you cut out all the flavor (like boiled chicken breast) you’re less likely to stick with the diet. At 160 a5’5″ you’re not all that bad: even ten pounds will make you feel and look different. You should try Weight Watchers so you learn more about food and exercise and not try to lose everything at once. Lifestyle changes will help you keep the weight off.

    BTW, a mile is 100 calories whether you walk or run it: just running takes less time.

    I weighed 160 lbs and Im also 5’5!
    I’ve lost 40 lbs but that took me literally a year to lost that and I did it the healthy way (cut out junk food, ate breakfast, more veggies and fruits). Losing that much in 2 months seem a little too much.
    Good luck though, however, I shed the first 20 lbs really quickly, like within the first 3 months but the last 20 lbs took me a while as I hit a plateau.

    If you can do it, it will help. But not necessarily because of the calories burned. You’ll only burn around as many calories as a tuna sandwich has. You will, though, retain muscle and have more energy. Those things will help you lose weight. The retained muscle will keep up your caloric metabolism. The increased energy will help you with anything that you want to accomplish, including weight loss.

    I don’t think 40 pounds in two months is a realistic goal or a healthy one. Strive for one pound a week. It seems like nothing, but imagine if you started just under a year ago. You’d already be at your desired weight.

    Hire a substitute teacher. Don’t reach for the brands you know and love immediately – or without thinking first. Eggs are “good” for you, but consider using egg substitutes instead (in fact, many restaurants will let you order lower calorie foods). There are countless “lower” alternatives for you to try. If something different doesn’t taste good, by all means – find a better substitute, or eat less of the original. In some cases, the substitute may be worse for you than the regular version of the product. The good news is, healthier choices are silently replacing their “normal” counterparts – and they taste just as nice.
