In the last two weeks I have changed how I workout quite a bit. Between 1/19/14 and 2/1/14 I gained about 10 pounds in the last 6 days I lost 5.8 lbs. Every other time I've started working out I've always just lost a pound or two over a couple weeks. These results seem dramatic to me. Is this normal? Was I just doing it wrong before?
Well, my mom told one time that its healthy to lose 2 pounds a week. If u lose more than that, then it could possibly be dangerous. This is just what she told me. If i were u, i wouldn't try to overdue any thing. Let your body adjust..... i hope this was helpful.
I wouldn't worry to much some of the extra weight may of just been water racing my motorcycle in the desert heat I would lose5 lbs in a day have it back in a day or so. Make sure u getting enough liquids when working out.
I lost about 30 lbs last spring losing 3 lbs a week on 1800 calories low carb high protein 4 to 5 days a week 45 minutes lifting weights working construction was my cardio
When you first make dramatic changes, it's normal to lose several pounds the first couple of weeks. You'll probably see it start to slow to about 2lbs per week. It's very difficult (and without proper guidance, can be dangerous or counterproductive - such as losing muscle) to continue losing that amount week after week after week.
