To loose 16 pounds in 60 days, you'll have to consume 933 calories per day via exercise and diet (each pound represents about 3500 calories). If you're young and healthy, you can do it. Aim for 300 calories from exerecise and 633 from diet. Don't go on diets that cause you to lose lots of weight in a short time.

You need to set up a life-style that you can continue for the rest of your life.
