It Can Happen, it Does Happen, it Did Happen!
One of the things I write about in my book is that weight loss can happen quickly! One of the myths that keeps getting perpetuated is that you can't lose weight faster than you put it on....really? Well I think the opposite is true, in fact I know the opposite to be true!
How many times have you heard "Well, you know...you didn't put it on overnight, so you can't expect to take it off overnight!" You know what? Screw you! These are the same people that also tell you once they notice that you are in fact losing weight, "Now, don't lose too much weight. You don't want to do that...you don't want to get too skinny!" How dare anyone say that to anybody else.... I say lose all the weight you want, go ahead.
I know how much food, how many extra calories it takes to support an additional 100 lbs of body weight, I know because I did it. Once you stop eating like a 250lber you stop being a 250lber! The "250lber Fairy" didn't come tap you on the head! The reason why I promote a very low calorie diet is to create momentum. Losing 5 lbs in a week is practically overnight! And when we see results quickly it adds fuel to our fire.
It took me years, at the rate of 20lb per year until I my body weight reached over 250lbs, and 11 months to drop 100lbs. And I wasn't malnourished, in fact I was the healthiest person I knew. Eating highly nutritious vegetables in abundance, plenty of proteins, fats and carbs, during the week and ice cream and cookies on Saturday (if I wanted), I was hardly starving.
What about the myth that losing weight too fast isn't healthy.
Is being 250lbs healthy? Starving isn't healthy no matter how much weight you want to lose. "Starving" yourself is an unhealthy mind set as much as eating yourself to death is, it's the same destruction. Neither should be an option.
Feed yourself the right amounts of food to support the bodyweight you want to see and feel, and it can happen quickly. It can happen starting today, right now, you can do it!
