Losing that amount of weight is incredibly unhealthy (and I would say impossible).
If that was all fat loss it would = 210,000 calories burned. There is no way. If that was water weight you would be dead. The only thing I can think of is a SERIOUS disease.
I would urge anyone who has dropped 10 + lbs. to go see a doctor IMMEDIATELY and with the symptoms you're claiming I would suggest going to the hospital.
You know what screw it, GO TO THE HOSPITAL

Not really sure why you made the decision to lose weight.See you lose weight really fast when you die,the goal in this lifetime is to keep the weight on,so that if you do get sick,your body has some fat reserves.Its the bodies survival mechanism.Dont get caught up in the paris hilton crackhead mentality.

Hello, kind of rare to read this type of questions in ATS. You have to know that we are supossed to have a diet that has certain amount of protein, carbs and fat and you have to pick the right choices for each. Like for example not fried oils.. but a teaspoon in the natural state on the salad for example. Fruits and Vegetables are a great source of vitamins and stuff but most vegetarians comit a great mistake. If you are going to go Vegetarian mode you have to make sure you have in your vegetarian food a good source of iron and the rest of aminoacids you are not getting from the meat and only specific vegetables have these properties and you must know how to comine these foods to get the 8 essential aminoacids your body cannot make for itself. These aminoacids come alltogether in meat (protein) but in vegetables and grains they come separate, so you have to know how to combine them or you will get anemia (cronic fatigue, lack of energy, white skin).
Also there are some fatty acids that you must also make sure you are getting and these mostly come from fish and flax. A lot of people run with this defficiency and health problems appear.
About grains.. grains have to be consumed in moderation.. and only the full grains. About the conspiracy.. yes there is a conspiracy in refined food, sugared and chemically altered food.. you have to avoid at all cost. White bread and white rice and coke are designed to make you pig out and put you in an obese state. This has to do on how a refined carbs go directly to the bloodstream in form of insulin and make some peaks up and down that increase your appetite (pig out).
btw 30 lbs in a weeks is impossible. But i can believe you lost a lot if you are really really obese and did only ingest fruits and vegetables.. because fruit and vegetables do not have many calories (and have high nutritional value) and without the salt water retention decreases. A lof of these weight you have lost comes from water, fat and muscle. When we lose weight we must focus on lose fat and not muscle. I do not recomment getting rid of grains completely, make it low and you should be fine. When people stop either eating carbs.. or stop eating only proteing or stop eating only fat.. health problems appear. Your brain works with glucose, and glucose comes from the carbs (if not you get these headache-dizzynes).. and vegetables are carbs but I dont think they are good enough like complex carbs like full grains. Erase the simple, engineer, refined, altered and chemically processed carbs and you will be fine. Sorry for my english it is not the best.edit on 25-9-2011 by Velenger because: (no reason given)edit on 25-9-2011 by Velenger because: (no reason given)
