  3. 3. Most doctors and nutritionists would say that losing 5pounds a week is excessive and that losing 1 to 2 pounds per week is a healthier goal. With rapid weight loss comes several unhealthy side effects such as: -Calorie deprivation : In order to lose 4 lbs in one week, one must have a daily deficit of 2,000 calories. -gaining the weight back much quicker: With yo-yo dieting, a person tends to gain back more weight at a quicker pace while losing less weight at a slower pace. -Loss of daily necessary nutrients: When cutting calories, you are providing your body with less of thenecessary nutrients it needs to function on a daily basis. /http://www.flickr.com/photos/reduce84098/5139598047
  4. 4. Need another reason why it is not reasonable or beneficial to lose 5 pounds in a week?? Both exercise and the recovery phase of exercise require energy (calories). Without the energy to supply the recovery phase, your muscles will begin to shrink and weaken. This will make it even more difficult to exercise which in turn will not be very helpful with any weight loss goal.http://www.flickr.com/photos/windsordi/4399697384/
