Can You Really Lose 10 Pounds In a Week?
This diet became popular because it claims you can lose 10 pounds (4.5 kg) in a week.
Theoretically, this rate of weight loss is possible for overweight people who severely restrict calories. However, most of the weight loss will be due to loss of water, not fat.
Water weight drops rapidly as the body’s glycogen stores decline, which happens when you restrict carbs and calories
This looks good on the scales, but that weight will be regained when you begin eating normally again.
BOTTOM LINE:It is possible to lose 10 pounds in a week. However, most of this will be water weight, which is regained when you start eating normally.
