    What are the dangers of losing too much weight too quickly?

    Is it unhealthy for someone to lose too much weight too quickly? Are there other issues of concern?

    if you eat so little that you lose more weight than 2# per week, you are probably setting yourself up for nutritional deficiencies. in some circumstances (close medical monitoring), rapid weight loss works. supposedly, it's easier to keep off weight that you've lost slowly.

    Yes, it is unhealthy.  One of the dangers is gall bladder trouble.  Many people (mostly women) end up having gall bladder surgery after a weight loss.  Also losing too much weight too fast depletes the body of necessary nutrients and your body will crave any and every food in an attempt to get those elements back in balance.
