60lbs is a lot of weight, and crash-diets are dangerous. I honestly don't think you can safely lose that amount of weight before summer, unfortunately. However, that doesn't mean you have to give up completely.
Diet And Weight-Loss
If you're eating less and don't feel full, then it sounds as if you're eating the wrong types of food. You can actually eat more food and lose weight — you just need to eat the right things. If you feel full, you're less likely to binge later on in the day, and so you should be able to lose weight easily.
The following foods are great for eating in large quantities, as they're so low in calories. You can eat them, feel full for ages, and watch your waist-line shrink!
- Salad. There are usually about 40 calories in an entire bag of salad. Instead of having salad with your meal, try having it as the base, with low-fat protein like grilled chicken or fish. I do this when I'm on a diet, and it's very filling, very nutritious and tastes pretty good, too.
- Vegetables. I know it doesn't sound particularly appetising, but vegetables as a snack (or even as a meal) can be really nice. I quite often eat a bowl of green veg (broccoli, asparagus, sugar-snap peas, etc.) with a little parmesan grated on top. Add black pepper as well, and you've got a delicious, filling snack for under 100 calories.
- Protein. Fish, chicken and egg-whites are all pretty low in calories and very high in protein. They'll fill you up far longer than a muffin or a slice of toast will.
- Water. Whenever you feel hungry, drink a glass of water. Your body will often confuse thirst and hunger, so you may be eating when you don't need to. Even if you're not, moderate dehydration can still cause you to carry water-weight around with you. Drink enough, and you'll shed this in days.
Getting A Beach Body
Unfortunately, dieting alone won't do the trick. If you want to wear crop-tops, you'll need to exercise. My BMI (body mass index) says I'm either underweight or borderline-underweight, but unless I exercise, I still won't have a stomach that I'd want to expose to the world in a crop-top!
There's a really good app for both Apple and Android platforms (I've got it on my Mac, and my mother has it on her Android phone) called Daily Ab Workout. It's free, and if you use that daily, you'll definitely notice your stomach becoming more toned. If you're out of practise, it's agonising, but you notice the improvement really quickly!
The best way to lose weight in a safe, healthy manner is to eat healthily and exercise more. You need to be consuming less calories than you burn up, so make sure you're not wasting calories on things you don't need. Make everything you eat count — if it won't fill you up, don't eat it!
Of course, you can still treat yourself on occasion, but try eating less than you usually would when it comes to chocolate, candy and snacks.
