I lost 2 1/2 stone in a couple of months by eating less and moving more. I've kept it off too. No fad diets
Genuinely - using a calories deficit model where 3500 calories is a lb lost, you're 35*3500 calories down in 9 weeks = 13500 cals per week. That's on average a deficit of nearly 2000/day which I guess you could achieve by eating a lot less and moving a lot more, but sustainably? I've done the same in 5 months starting with calories control to 1500/ day and then on the 5:2, and I suspect I've got a 'diet' that I can adjust to maintain the weight better than you can adapt yours - are you going to start moving less, or eating more, cos you can't keep going losing 4lbs a week.
