Is it Healthy to Lose Weight Quickly?
What should be the correct amount of weight to lose over time to avoid complications later.
The recommend weight loss is 1 to 2 pound per week. If you lose weight faster, it's best to do so under medical supervision. A fast weight loss may imply that you're losing water content and muscle tissue rather than fat tissue. It puts you at risk from suffering blood sugar imbalance, which may cause tiredness and mood swings. Also you're at risk from suffering from hair loss and gall stones.
No more than 2 pounds per week should be lost if you want to avoid a rebound effect or malnutrition. There are many negative effects on the body by losing weight too quickly, including but not limited to: Metabolism, Diabetes, Hair Loss, Loose Skin...etc.
If you lose weight too quickly, your body may perceive that it is being starved, and slow the speed of your metabolism. This in turn may make it more difficult for you to lose weight in the long run. Other negative side effects of a state of starvation include feeling tired, irritable and low on energy. Dizziness and fainting are relatively more likely if you are starving and losing weight too fast.
The Medline Plus medical encyclopedia indicates that crash dieting, starvation or sudden weight loss may cause hair loss. ...and losing more than 2lbs per week will do just that; make your body believe it is being starved.
Losing weight too quickly can lead to diabetes mellitus and the development of diabetes in people who have participated in studies was believed to be an increase in stress hormones, as a result of crash dieting.
Losing more than 1-2 pounds of actual body fat per week is not only unhealthy, but just plain dangerous. Great question that many should know the answer to!

The correct amount of weight to lose over time all depends on your body stats (i.e., weight, height, bone structure, body fat, body mass, etc.). Two pounds for a 130 pound person will obviously be a bigger percentage than for someone who is 230 pounds. Therefore, keep advice on poundage in perspective due to your body stats. For some who are obese and have health complications, losing weight quicker can be an advantage. However, losing weight (particularly body fat) should be done in a healthy manner with proper diet and exercise - not with gimmicky diets, nor magic pills or potions. The gimmicky diets and products can actually jeopardize your health more. Make sure you're eating a healthy, natural diet balanced with lean proteins, fibrous carbohydrates (mostly veggies), limited starchy carbohydrates for after a workout, and essential dietary fats. Eat at regular intervals (every 2-4 hours) and only until 80 percent full. Make sure you get at least 3-5 days of exercise (30 minutes daily) per week. This will afford you the quickest and healthiest weight loss.
