Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight fast unhealthy

Avatar n tn The way to lose weight and keep it off is to change your eating habits, not rely on a quick will power diet. That means you have to learn something about how your mind works, because eating too much of the wrong foods is a psychological decision that has many meanings...You can go to the library and find my book on the subject, Shrink Yourself...or go to the website of that name and read the free articles and use some of the free tools.
Avatar n tn Most people can improve the quality of the food they eat and lose weight. The first thing to do is switch from soft drinks to water. Soda should be a rare treat once or twice a month, not every day. Avoid fast food and eat home-cooked, well-balance meals focusing on a variety of vegetables as well as poultry, fish, and lean meats. Whole fruits are fine, and better than juices because they have more fiber you need. Don't fry food. Use healthier methods and healthy oils.
Avatar f tn and drinking only tea for breakfast is extremely unhealthy! Your body is super hungry after a whole night fast...n then when you give it tea (anything acidic) it feels you're starving and starts storing fat..fat is like cotton,more volume and less weight! so you might see weight loss,but not much inch loss.just have a healthy breakfast,a fruit as snack after about 2 hours,lunch and another snack after 2 hours and keep it light for dinner...and have an early dinner.i lost 15 kgs in 3 months.
Avatar f tn Here is the answer to this question. In order to lose weight, you have to subtract calories. Safe weight loss is 1-2 lbs/week, so in order to lose 1 lb/week, you'd have to drop 500 calories from your BMR each day (1 lb is equal to 3500 calories, so 500 calories X 7 days = 3500 calories or 1 lb). OR you can drop 250 calories from your diet and increase .....
Avatar f tn Yes it's normal to lose weight while pregnant. I lost weight the first trimester and my doctor didn't worry as long as baby is growing. Just eat healthy and stay active! !
Avatar n tn Your Thyroid could be not working properly. I was losing my hair & gaining weight rapidly & found out that my Thyroid was to blame. That is why I take a synthetic hormone for my thyroid now. I've stopped gaining the weight but before we had discovered what was causing all of my problems I went from a healthy 150lbs to an unhealthy 360lbs in about 6months time. Now that we have me on the synthyroid.
Avatar f tn "Some people fast as a way to lose weight. Others fast to try to detox their bodies, or for religious reasons. If you're fasting to lose weight, you may want to reconsider. The weight loss may not last after you finish fasting. If your goal is to detox your body, you should know that there's no proof that it works. Your body naturally detoxes itself. Fasting diets aren't all the same. Some allow only liquids like water, juice, or tea.
1458590 tn?1333403812 How can I loose weight at a very fast rate? I have been climbing "Stone Mountain"(up and down) and I have been walking five miles as well and I have lost some weight, but I want to loose like 40 pounds...Any suggestions???
Avatar f tn I've put on close to 15 lbs I the past 5-6 months and I'm extremely unhappy with this. Hoping this will help me maintain my goals & lose weight in a HEALTHY way. The weight gain was due to my unhealthy eating, so I'm trying to get back on the right track!!
Avatar n tn I way 153 punds. I know it is really unhealthy. That is why I am here I want ro lose this weight and maintain my weight.
Avatar f tn Its good you've set a goal and are looking to find out how to achieve it! However losing 15 pounds in a month is unrealistic and unhealthy. Did you know it takes about a year for your body to adjust to losing 10 pounds? It's important to remember weight loss is a marathon and not a sprint. In order to lose weight and keep it off, you shouldn't look at it as weight loss but a way to become healthier!
Avatar f tn Your body may soon think its in starvation mode and do the same thing that happen to me. Be excited about losing weight but be careful losing it so fast.
Avatar f tn I would suggest making an appointment with your family doctor to discuss a realistic weight loss and a possible new food plan to achieve this new realistic goal. Losing 15 lbs in 2 weeks is not realistic and can put your health in jeopardy, big time. I wish you well.
10366239 tn?1409616907 I am over weight because for the last few years I've had a "desk job" and I was not exercising at all because I was always wiped out because of my hours. I have a new job and I walk constantly. Today I walked 5 miles just at work. I'm not eating differently but I'm losing weight because of the activity. I know I'm supposed to be gaining weight. I don't know how this works. I can't not work and exercise is important anyway.
Avatar f tn I am a teenage girl who is overweight and I have lost 4lbs since I started this callory counting diet about 2 days ago. I am just wondering is it normal tp lose weight this fast.
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 n tn There is no shortcut to losing weight and you can lose a lot of weight by using common sense. Avoid junk food and eat fruits and vegetables. Try to eat lean meats, such as chicken and turkey to get the protein you need. Find an activity or sport that you enjoy. You are more likely to stick to it and make it part of your lifestyle that way. Try to get 30-60 minutes of exercise everyday by doing your favorite physical activities. Drink lots of water and avoid weight loss products.
20927283 tn?1678738881 I either eat too much or not enough. Currently, I'm fasting to lose more weight. It's like I'm addicted to losing weight. No one knows how down I am right now. I feel like I'll never be thin enough.
Avatar f tn It also helps to plan your meals ahead of time so that you know before hand how many calories your going to eat that day. You dont have to eat much of some foods to keep from losing weight. You can purchase the calorie counter book in a paper back at most any book store... Id also suggest that you try eating 1,500to 1,600 calories daily. Most males usually use or burn about 2400 calories daily.
Avatar f tn Every appointment ive lost 3 or 4 pounds. I am, however, over weight. I also know that I shouldnt be losing weight. Ive had no morning sickness or anything. My doctor doesnt seem bothered but this Im 15 weeks now. And its bothering me.
