Question: I am on a 3-day fad diet which claims that a person is able to lose up to 10lbs in 3 days? I feel really tired, is it because of the diet? I'm eating hardly anything. Was I stupid to start it? I know it's not that healthy to lose weight quickly, but have you ever heard that it's possible to lose that much weight so fast? It says it's mostly a water diet? What does that mean? Thanks, needs help!!
Answer: Dear needs help, Diets that restrict your calories like that teach your body to survive on fewer calories, which is the opposite of what you should do. Most of the weight you lose is only water weight and you'll gain it back when you start eating regularly again. Two pounds per week is the most you can safely lose by dieting. You feel tired because your body and mind aren't getting enough energy supplied to them. The best way to lose weight is through healthy, low-fat eating and exercise.
