Losing weight fast safely

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight fast safely


Avatar f tn Safely losing 25 pounds by December is impossible. I'm not sure how you've lost the 35, so far, but if you're stuck, try changing your routine. Increase/decrease your exercise and calorie intake. If you continually do the exact same thing, your body gets used to it and simply expects that. Changing your routine every few days will keep things more "upset", so your body won't have a chance to get used to it.
Avatar f tn If you're losing weight unintentionally, you need to see your doctor. There are some very serious medical issues that cause weight loss/inability to gain. One is hyperthyroidism (over active thyroid). You need to have some simple thyroid function tests done... those are Free T3, Free T4 and TSH. Another is diabetes. Blood sugar tests are needed to diagnose that. Both of these conditions can be present for a while before symptoms show up, so you should get tested asap...

Avatar f tn Losing weight isn't about silly ideas or having it fall off fast. You probably didn't gain it fast, so you can't expect to lose it fast either. 15 lbs is too much to expect to lose safely in one month, but you can get started and lose as much as possible. The 3 areas that are the most important for weight loss, seem to be the 3 areas in which you're the least flexible. Those are diet, exercise and sleep.
Avatar n tn I started trying to lose weight then SURPRISE. so i looked up how to safely lose weight and it said to know how much you need to gain... My question is how can you tell how much weight you are gaining if you are loosing weight?
Avatar f tn I am losing large amounts of weight very quickly I cant keep anything including most liquids down for over a month now. I was not big to begin with about 130 and currently almost down to 100.suffered for years with an eating disorder and it resurfaced recently worse than ever. was hospitalized with vomiting blood recently and after released I have no choice but to vomit after every little sip or bite of anything because even if I wamted to keep it down my body forces it out.
Avatar f tn Fasting will slow down you metabolism where as eating small amounts often will keep it working. So I agree religious reasons fine but for losing weight a very temporary fix that could cause gain later when you try eating normal again. But it also depends how long and how often when it comes to negative effects.
Avatar f tn I need to get off this medication ASAP because it has made me gain weight and I fear is preventing me from losing (it is imperative that I lose it for my well being). I am ok to discontinue, my mental health is stable and all is well, but how fast can I do so? I've cut down to 15mg for the past 3 days, but would like to stop totally within two or so weeks. Can I safely get away with another 4 days of 15mg then 4 days of 10mg, 3 days of 5mg, then nothing? Many thanks for support and advice!
594189 tn?1386916607 Well... the recommended amount of weight per week is 1-2 pounds. Just wanting to ask, do you exercise and follow a healthy meal plan?
Avatar n tn As the first comment correctly stated, losing weight fast doesn't last and leaves you weaker, which you don't want to be if you're getting ready for basic training. Why not wait to join the military until you're ready?
Avatar m tn My guess is that you’re losing weight too fast. 80 lbs lost in 4 months (20 lbs/month) is way too much. Safe weight loss is 1-2 lbs/week or 8-10 lbs/month. If you’re only eating 1 meal/day, but drinking an entire gallon of water, you’re not eating enough, especially, fiber. Your body needs a certain amount of calories each day in order to be healthy. If you aren’t eating enough and exercising, you’re breaking down muscle instead of only losing fat.
Avatar f tn I lost weight during my first pregnancy so I would say its normal :) dont worry.

Avatar f tn Hey yall, I've lost about 10 pounds in 2 days and I'm 5 weeks pregnant. I haven't been eating much because I'm so worried about what's good and bad for the baby. I have awful anxiety and depression so I over think and worry about everything . I haven't been taking my anxiety medicine due to risks of harming the baby and I think that's why I can't eat and am losing weight so fast. Is this dangerous or will it get better with time ?
