Maybe people underestimate the calories they are eating.

Anyways water weight fluctuates and is normal.
Fat loss is more consistent and takes time. maybe try some weight/body weight training 2x/ week

I lost about 4 pounds in a week from just drinking Diet Coke and mostly water and eating a bag of sunflower seeds. But I also obsessively exercise and had no motivation to do literally anything else.

Generally speaking by not eating.

Also by varying my intake every day.

I never eat the same daily limit. 

Fast as often as you can tolerate.

Changing my calorie intake throughout the week between 500 and 800 calories. I also have an exercise app that gives me exercises that lose between 350 and 450 calories every day. Each exercise is about 15 minutes long. This made me lose 4 pounds in four days.

When I first started I was eating pretty much 300 cals a day. What i would do was aim for 500 (some days I would go a bit over) but usually be at like 300. I was eating frozen dinners for dinner gum all day diet coke and coffee all the time. from the end of april to mid june I think I went from around 152 I think to 135. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND I couldn't exercise let alone think. I could never sleep and ALWAYS had an icepick headache until I ate something it was terrible. i couldn't stand in the shower I couldn't think, I stood up and I was SO dizzy and and it went black and I would almost fall over. I mean when I stand it goes black now but not that bad. Keep in mind I was at a healthy weight at this time. My bmi was 24.7 JUST at the healthy range so that puts it into a big perspective :/

Oh god I'm up to 140 from 120 :/

Not to be that person but around how many cals did you have 145 to 99 on average? 99 is my freaking ugw!!

 

Also maybe you could try calorie cycling. Like for example you could have a goal of 4010 cals a week, which divided by 7 would be like having 572 calories a day except you'd be spreading it out. Note I think 2 fast days after the highest calorie spike day helps speed the weight/metabolism a tiiiny bit, you know like how 2468 works when there's a 200 cal day after the 800 day. But it's optional.

 

So

 

mon: 600

tues:1300 

wed: 5 cal fast

thurs:5 cal fast

fri: 900 

sat: 900

sun: 300

 

You can change all these numbers of course! Long as you have a weekly calorie goal. It's not the end of the world if you go a little over or under some days but don't be too sneaky cos its crazy how things add up.

 

I also find what helps is having meals already pre-prepped in the freezer so I don't have to stress about making food and calculating everything for the day.

 

Another tip; it helps me when I write down in my food journal - fill in 3 days in advance everything I plan to eat at scheduled times and if I continue to follow that routine ,, it helps me stay on track better.

I once lost 15 pounds in a week by fasting and drinking two gallons of water a day, pretty painful once you hit the second gallon but worth it, it was a quick fix type thing and now I'm at my lowest weight (165)

This is kinda weird but when I was 10 I had mono and really bad ocd(I couldnt eat because it was dirty). Literally all I drank for 2 months was chocolate milk, I lost like 20-30ish lbs and I wasn't even overweight, I also grew like 3 inches. Also I basically slept like 23 hrs a day.

Eat one meal a day.
Purge that meal.
20000 + steps.
Intermittent fast (22 hours between meals).

My life has no meaning or joy. Feel like I’m a walking, talking eating disorder. Sure I’m losing weight pretty fast but I wouldn’t recommend this. I’m tired and I black out a lot. It seems like the smell of vomit follows me everywhere. My electrolytes are crap. I have a dodgy heart. Dodgy blood pressure. A laxative addiction ...

Sorry for the rant 😖

Well I didn't weigh myself but when my parents went away for 2+ weeks I only ate some kind of rice dish for breakfast like biryani or pulao then just Diet Coke or milk tea for rest of day and when they came back they were really angry and worried

in 2016 I lost about 5 pounds a week for 3 months. I didn't eat most days and when I did I didn't eat much. It was hard, but I am trying to do it again
