    If that is your photo in your sign-on my guess is that you have a high enough body fat percentage that you could make 215.

    It would be very important not to do that by diet alone. You would want to work out very hard because you don't want to lose strength as you lose body fat.

    I would suggest cardio type workouts and weight training that focused on lighter reps but more of them. Your trainer/coach can help give you the training tips you need to reach that weight.
    If we don't fight hard enough for the things we stand for, at some point we have to recognize that we don't really stand for them.

    It's not impossible.
    Personally I cut 40 pounds in about 5 weeks (From 245 to 205)
    Not, it's not easy,
    And it's probably not very healthy either..
    But it's possible.
    First things first though, do NOT starve yourself. Three square meals a day (Not octagonal, cut back majorly) is the way to go.
    You have to run, ALOT. I ran with the Cross Country team for and and I was running about 9 or 10 miles daily. It's NOT easy. But it will pay off in the end. Not just from the weight cut, but from the stamina. I went from my first year (Last year) of only placing twice in meets (Once sixth and once second) to never placing below third. It'll pay off man, trust me.
