Losing weight! Diet/workout plan for the next 6 weeks

So I was at 145 lbs while eating comfortably and training every now and then (I was busy with school for the time being), but I have until the end of September to put all of my time in training and taking care of injuries and whatnot. Coach wants me to be under 135 lbs by then.

I've been changing my diet so that I eat smaller portions throughout the day. I usually eat some fruits and maybe a whole wheat toast for breakfast. Then a few hours later, I might have a couple fruits again. For lunch, I usually have a salad with red leaf lettuce, broccoli, cucumbers, celery, grilled chicken (or honey ham or salmon flakes), with a dabble of dressing of some sort. As the day goes on, I have some more fruits (whatever I bought or is in the fridge. Bananas, apples, peaches, oranges, the simple fruits that require no cutting). For dinner, I usually have brown rice and put curry sauce on it, or perhaps use the brown rice and make fried rice out of it.

So that's what my diet is like in a nutshell...

As for training...
*Boxing gym days*
9-10AM 30 minute jog in the morning
10AM~ Stretch/roll out legs to prevent shin splints
7PM Head to boxing gym
7:15-9PM Warm up, ropes, shadowbox, spar, bags, the typical boxing gym stuff
9-12AM Possibly icing down shins or wrists
12AM-1AM Zzz

*When I don't go to the boxing gym*
9-10AM 30 minute jog in the morning
10AM~ Stretch/roll out legs to prevent shin splints
whenever~ Bike over to a track and do half mile sprints. My goal is to do 5 sets under 3 minutes each. Right now I'm slightly out of shape and getting 3 sets in.

So that's what my boxing conditioning plan is like. I never knew how hard it would be to lose so much weight.

Thoughts/comments/feedback would be appreciated.

You are eating too much fruit, but not enough protein, healthy fat, and vegetables. You should add in some strength training a couple of days per week. If you do not want to lift weights, you could at least do bodyweight exercises.

I do sets of push ups after my runs. So far I'm at 3 sets of 20, but I can do more than that. I just need to build back up to it again. Crunches are something I do in the gym, but I should start doing them at home as well...

My weight fluctuates from 141 lbs to 143.5 lbs throughout the day. My guess is about 1 to 1.5 lbs of water mass.

you can carry up and around ten pounds of water mass at any given time.

that's why they make sauna suits

That is not enough to build strength. You should try also doing bodyweight squats, pull ups/chin ups, and bodyweight rows. Check out bodyweight strength routines online. Ross Enamait is a good place to start the search.

My coach told me to drink a gallon of water a day, so I have a feeling he doesn't want me losing weight from the water mass.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I do pull ups at the end of my workout at the boxing gym. Bodyweight squats would be a good one, since I can't afford a membership at 24hr Fitness anymore on top of my boxing gym membership.

Have you guys ever heard of Paleolithic diet? I've been recommended it by a friend of mine who does crossfit training, and he guarantees great results. I'm just wondering if anyone else can vouch for its effectiveness or have ever heard of it.

I believe the purpose of this is to loss the water mass actually. When you keep drinking a lot of water you body eventually realizes its getting a constant intake, thus making it realize there is no need to retain water in your body.

Interesting. Didn't know the human body does that.
