IMPOSSIBLE. The body can't lose this fast.

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

OK, who is messing with my bathroom scale? I've lost yet another 2.2 pounds since Monday - just two days ago. And I lost 4 pounds the week before that. (And 3 pounds the two weeks prior to that as I started slowly.) The body cannot lose weight that fast. Females can burn 2.2 pounds a week (2.5 with, what do they call it again, oh yeah, exercise.) One of three things: (1) my scale is incorrect, (2) I'm still losing water weight, or (3) grazing all day long on raw foods has raised my metabolism incredibly. Crazy. I'm drinking fruit/veggie blends all day long, nuts probably once a day, maybe a small piece of meat, and maybe 4 bottles of water. This can't possibly keep up like this. BTW, I feel normal, not over-peppy or fatigued or anything, just normal. Que pasa?

    It is possible in the beginning. Especially with what you are eating. The body can lose as much weight as it wants, however, more than two pounds isn't recommended because then you are losing more muscle than fat. With a typical two pound weight loss, you lose 80% fat, 20% muscle. Losing 4 or 5 pounds a week will alter that ratio greatly.

    I think your scale is correct. It seems that at least 1 week each week I lose between 4.5 to 5 pounds in one week...weird I know but it is true. Keep up the good work. :-)

  I should try this and see if it gives me the same results! SP just made me up my daily calories but if I ate mostly fruit and veggies who knows what would happen. I will try to follow your suit and see what happens. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! emoticon

    For me in the beginning I had a massive weight loss then it got hard because my muscles were slowly producing. I just went with the emoticon emoticon emoticon
