Fire. Or long steady state cardio, but fire is definitely quicker.
A calorie expenditure greater than one's calorie intake. It's that simple.
Reiterating @Chelonian here. Drop calories to 1900-2000 a day and keep exercising. Your body fat will drop quickly. Not necessarily a long term plan though as you’ll need calories and carbs to exercise regularly and effectively for RT
Normally I would say don't worry about stuff like BMI. However the first 9 weeks of Phys is very intense and all bodyweight orientated. Any extra weight you will know about it on rope climbs , camp circuits and the beam etc. Being lean and having a low body fat is the best way to be to start RT
However the double edge sword is that the leaner/lighter lads struggled in phase 2 with load carries and yomps, unfortunately a fair few ended up in hunter with lower limb issues.
So in my opinion having a bit of a spare tyre won't hurt you in phase 2 ...aka the nod bod. In phase 2 when you have longer exercises with heavier Bergen's and longer yomps your body will use the excess fat as energy and fuel when you are working at exhaustion with no sleep.
@H_557 As referenced above by @Jaykay2343 the BMI only gives a very rough indication of what might be considered to be a 'healthy' height to body weight. But it can be useful along as one understands its limitations.
It’s an absolute joke the Forces has ever even taken on board the BMI rubbish. It’s a horrendous system and terrible.
They also incorporate waist circumference for heavier/muscular lads which can then take BMI upto 32 I believe if you have a waist circumference of 94cms or less
