You should try cutting out foods like breads, cheese, anything fried, milk other than 1%, sour cream. If you eat bread it needs to be whole wheat and not after 6pm. Make sure you eat portion sizes which aren't  big and eat 3 hours before you go to sleep. NO MIDNIGHT SNACKING and exercise 3 times week for at least 30 minutes. I recommend the elliptical, it does wonders! Oh and 5 -6 meals a day is ideal. 3 square meals and 2 snacks like fruits or veggies. Every meal should include a meat and a veggie! Oh and about 80oz of water a day will also help!!

To lose 40 lbs in 60 days, you're looking at 1.5 lbs lost per day, which is A LOT.

The only way you're going to achieve that is if you are at the moment in the 'obese' category, as its not easy to create such a massive calorie deficit to create that kind of weight loss in any healthy way if you're just a bit overweight.

If you want to play it safe, eat no less than 1,200 calories as a woman or 1,500 calories as a guy each day.

Further, do 1 hour of cardio every day to burn an additional 500 calories.

Whatever weight loss you achieve with this is going to be your optimal rate, I would not push your body past this....

Ideally you should be looking for 2lbs of weight loss each week. 

You can expect more loss if you weigh more though...
