Default 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!


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.
