Question about quick loss
 
I have experienced it, I have heard about it, but has there been any
explanation or anything written as to why from time to time, You can go a week
or so without appearing to lose, then BAM! a 9 lb loss overnight? I know I will
sometimes go awhile get depressed about not losing anything, but then I have a
bad day where I feel lousy and washed out. I get on the scale the next day and
have large loss in an one day period. I have seen a loss of almost 10 lbs. Why
is that?

Have a good One!
Mike

You don't give any basis to judge this on. A 120 lb woman? A 400 lb man?
If it's the latter, then maybe it can happen. For people who are 20 to 50
lbs over weight, I've never experienced it or heard of it happening.
You do lose quite a bit of weight as water loss during the first few
days of switching to low carb. So, if you're real heavy and did that,
you could have a big drop. But otherwise, assuming there isn't some
big change in your diet, I don't see 10 lbs in one day happening. It's not
unusual for people to get stuck at a certain weight for a week or longer
and then to have a couple pounds come off, but haven't heard of ten.

You tried to take it too literally and exact. My main point is why ( and it can
be proportionate, granted ) but still it is a lot more at some points than what
would be considered normal. Whether it be 2 lbs or 9 lbs proportionately. It is
not the normal weight loss on the diet. but sometimes it just hits like a bomb.
Just like a plateau can last for weeks. My question was just as to why
sometimes there is a disproportionate weight loss at various times. I would be
interested to know.

As I said, if you're just starting out LC, you can shed several pounds,
maybe even 10 lbs, if you weigh 300 lbs in the first few days. Most
of that is water loss. Women also have some weight fluctuation due to
their time of month. The rest of us can go up or down a couple pounds
from day to day, or get stuck at a particular weight for a week or longer,
then suddenly have a couple pounds come off one day. I've never seen
anyone drop 10 lbs in a day with that last scenario though. And whatever
the mechanism, AFAIK, I haven't seen anything that explains what happens.
