Is there such a thing as losing weight too fast and does losing too much weight too fast have negative consequences? Most people believe yes when you lose weight too fast you wind up with a bunch of excess skin and you increase the chances of gaining all the weight you lost back. But is this actually true? Today we’ll look at how losing weight fast effects the amount of excess skin you end up with at the end of the process, but let’s start first by figuring out if losing weight too fast negatively effects the amount of weight regain you regain. I mean is slow and steady weight loss actually better than losing weight at a faster pace when it comes to hitting your goals and maintaining your results for the long run. The most common held belief is that you should lose about 1 or 2 pounds per week. This maximum weight loss of 2 pounds per week is recommended by doctors, trainers, and dietitians, and anyone that goes outside of this standard recommendation of 1 or two pounds per week is looked down on because that kind of advice is believed to be ignorant and its believed to endanger the health and the long term success of the person looking to lose the weight. One of the most common concerns with fast weight loss is that it usually takes a huge amount of effort both with diet and exercise to lose weight fast which leads people to resort to unhealthy methods. Some people that try to lose weight as fast as possible attempt dangerous methods like crash diets, or they starve themselves, or they go from 0 to 100 with exercise and all of these approaches can be very unhealthy. Also you probably can’t maintain and keep up with these excessive approaches to weight loss as permanent lifestyle changes. You can stick to a crash diet for a week, maybe two, maybe even a month, but by month 4 chances are high that you’ve long since quit. Most experts believe that when you lose weight slowly you do it through ways that allow you develop healthy eating behaviors that you can continue applying long term to keep the weight off. On the other hand we’re told that most diets that promote rapid weight loss are often very low in calories and nutrients, which may put you at risk of many health problems, like muscle loss, nutritional deficiencies and gallstones, especially if you follow a rapid weight loss diet for a long time. Many people on a crash diet will also experience hunger, fatigue, muscle cramps, dizziness, and they might feel cold throughout the day. On top of that it’s also believed that when you lose weight too quickly chances are very high that you’re not losing fat mass, but you’re instead losing water weight or worse yet muscle tissue. You can’t be losing body fat in a healthy way consistently week after week at a rate higher than 2 pounds per week. Can you? Or is that just a myth that we’re constantly told. Before we get into what the studies have to say on this topic, I’d like to say that as a personal trainer that has worked with thousands of clients I can tell you that some people lose weight really fast and others lose weight really slow, but based on my experience whether they lose the weight fast or slow doesn’t seem to have that much of an impact on maintaining that weight. In fact from what I’ve seen some people especially people that are really heavy, if they don’t see results fast they’ll get demotivated and quit. Let me give you a simple example, if you’re looking to lose 10 pounds and you’re losing the average of 2 pounds per week, then every week you’re 20 percent closer to your goal. You know it’ll take you about a month of maintaining a clean diet with consistent exercise to get to your goal weight. However, what happens when you’re looking to lose 60 pounds to get to your goal weight. At the rate of 2 pounds per week, it’s gonna

Just reduce carbs < 40 grams a day & weight falls off. Now, Iโ€™m not as hungry and only need to eat 2x a day: lunch @ noon & dinner @ 6 – thatโ€™s it. Lots of veggies & healthy meat/fish. Look/feel amazing.

  3. i lost 47kg in 5 month with a ketogenic diet. yes, i built muscle in that proccess too, not lost it. have a bit of loose skin but its getting better slowly.

  4. I've lost about 20 pounds in 2 months, and still steadily losing!

    The info below is a very detailed explanation of what I've been doing, I consider it could be interesting for some people, if you have the spare time to read.

    Seeing all these videos really fill me up with confidence, 9 weeks ago I started both dieting and exercising more often, the exercise is Next Workout's 30 day plank challenge. After 9 weeks today I reached 15 reps of that exercise in a row, starting at only 5 in a row at first. This shows 2 things, one is that I am much weaker than I thought, and two, that I've been gradually improving my strength. In this 9 weeks I went from around 93 kg (205 pounds) to about 83 kg (183 pounds), with this I would need to take into account that I've gained muscle, so in reality is a bit more than 10 kg (22 pounds) of fat loss in 9 weeks, which means I'm over than 1-2 weekly pounds thing, but according to the video it's fine as long as you're not killing your muscles, which I'm certainly not doing.

  5. Depend on genetic. I blessed to have a good gene i lose weight fast but no access skin. Pls guys eat more vitamin b13 fiboflavin and niacin this vitamin helps to tighten ur skin if not but at least as much as possible

  6. I'm 6'1 and at my heaviest I was 275lbs. my goal was to get down to 215lbs. I managed to lose 40lbs in 1.5 years but have struggled to get under 230 (currently fluctuate between 231-236 for the last 6 months). I see changes in the mirror but the scale never drops below 230lbs. I agree slow n steady is best but With the amount of weight training and muay thai I do I expect better for myself. I just have 17lbs left to go-to reach my goal weight but its taking forever to lose that last little bit. I'm glad I came across this video. gives me hope and more motivation to keep going.

  7. This is the smart way to do it–from a physical therapist and now self help guy on YT. I tell my followers and subs that when doing an "Assessment of Self" you have to analyze if you are really at a rock bottom. Once you are then design the plan climb out and sounds like you are. Losing a lot of weight is NOT like those silly shows like The Biggest Loser where they are losing entirely too much weight too fast at way higher of a target heart rate than safe. You should be at a training target heart rate as long as cleared by the MD with no other medical issues. Then you build to a program of 45 -60 minutes of it an hour. By target heart rate I mean pulse rate. You exercise at that pulse rate. Here is the formula to find that called the Karvonen formula: 1) first find maximum heart rate 220-age. For me 220-53= 167 beat per minute (pulse rate). Then find your pulse at your wrist. For me it's 70 beats a minute. I take my Max HR and resting HR (heart rate) plug into this equation for this equation for 60% target heart rate which is a good median.
    .6(max HR-resting HR) + (resting HR)
    .6 (167-70) +97= 128 beats a minute
    128 on your pulse rate is your training rate. You exercise for 10 minutes and check and see where you are at. If you are lower then pick up the pace and if you are higher you can slow it down a little. But you stay there and build to 45 minutes a day. Do that and watch the diet as you said and set up a diet (like richard simmons deal a meal is good) that is healthy and you will lose 1-2 pounds a week —-and two years later you are a whole new you. And enjoy the process. Hope that helps—-Charles
