When the body is acutely stressed it looses weight fast. But unfortunately, most of this weight is muscle and or water, not fat. Surgery, illness, trauma will all do the same thing. When I had pancreatisis I went down 15 lbs in 4 days. Then I slowly gained it all back. The trick is to keep your food intake up to a certain level to convince your body it is not dying, and then to slowly take it off- but all you probably already know this, so I will shut up.
