Common Questions and Answers about Why is losing weight fast unhealthy

losing-weight

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 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 f tn If your eating healthy and at a caloric deficit then it will show in time. How long have you been dieting? What is your calorie intake? Do you also do cardio? Loosing weight "fast" doesn't usually coincide with healthy. The average weight loss at a low caloric deficit is 2 lbs. per week safely.
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 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 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.
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 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 -running or even fast walking (NO WALKING) for about 30min each day is really helpful (fast walking actually burns alot more calories than running and works you out more) With running or fast walking, make sure you move your arms alot. -50-100squats each day will definitely tone your legs and hips -Horizontal bicycle or situps workout your stomach (I personally find that horizontal bicycles work me out more than situps) Sooo yuup!!
Avatar f tn I'm only 6w1d, but over the past 7 days I have lost 3 lbs and it is NOT from morning sickness (I've only thrown up once so far). I'm not trying to lose weight, at all, and as much as I hate to admit it, I have fully embraced the eating habit of "eating for 2" already. I'm overweight, so it's not like I'm getting unhealthy thin or anything, but is it normal to lose weight like this without trying?
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 n tn Losing weight steadily with the healthy diet and workout is a nice way to shed extra pounds. I have lost 10lbs in 2 months with the help of appetite suppressant pills Regenon and healthy diet plan. You can try these meds for reducing weight fast.
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 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 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 ?
527657 tn?1214051850 Im not losing weight on the ten mgs but im not gaining as much either. Why can anyone tell me we gain weight on SRRI's???
Avatar f tn I am 15 weeks pregnant and my doctor tells me I need to watch my weight because I am actually losing a couple pounds every time I go to weigh in. Is anyone else experiencing that? I think I'm eating normal, even more than usual. I am drinking more water than ever tho so maybe that's why? ?
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 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 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.
