You’ll lose a lot of weight yes.

Problem is you have to realise that weight doesnt = fat.
Different things contribute to weight, like fat, muscle, water.

The idea of the best diets is that you want to get as close to 100% fat loss as possible taking up the weight you lose. Keep as much muscle as possible (This is what gives the body a “toned” impression) & lose a reasonable amount of water as thats unavoidable when you’re eating less.

Eating soup for a week you’ll lose an average amount of fat, quite a lot of muscle & a lot of water.

So you’ll lose a lot of weight as i say, but you’re appearance wont be anywhere near as good as it could be if you did things right. Its also very unhealthy as you’re not getting enough nutrition, you’ll feel weak…it will be very hard to stay disciplined as you’re body will be desperate for other foods & overall its a pretty disasterous idea.

Its good that you’re exercising already, you’re on the right track. Now just try eating healthier. Try eating 5-6 smaller meals a day….try and get a source of protein into every meal (very good on a diet, will keep you full and you’ll burn more calories eating it). Try drinking only water..When you want to snack have fruit of some kind. Only eat when you’re hungry….and finish eating when you’re full. Try jogging around to get places….

All of these kind of things are helpful. If you just google diet tips you’ll find lots.

But you have to have a sensible diet to lose fat properly. Your body has to be getting enough calories so that it doesnt start breaking down you’re muscle & burning that off for energy at a higher % than it does fat. Muscle loss is very bad on a diet, muscle is a big part of what determines the rate at which you burn calories….you’re metabolism. So lose muscle = lose fat slower…will have a negative effect on your bodys appearance also as i say. You get the idea, hope that helps.

Sandy asks…

Why did I lose weight fast in the last 2 weeks?

I started my diet about 2 or 3 months ago, at first I lost weight so fast but then I started losing weight so slowly (less than 1 pound a week), but in the last 2 weeks I lost 7 pounds and I’m wondering why I lost it so fast.I’m working out less than I used to, and I’m eating the same as I used to

weight loss cardiff answers:

If you are female, was the week that you lost weight slowly around your time of month? If so, you may have been retaining water that week that you lost quickly over the next two weeks—likely not all of that was water weight, but some of it may have been.

Otherwise, perhaps it was triggered by the change in your exercise habits. Your body may have noticed it was losing fat quickly and—concerned it wasn’t getting enough calories to sustain itself—slowed itself. When you stopped working out and consequently started using fewer calories, your body may have relaxed.
