Rapid weight loss can also be an indication that there may be an illness contributing to the weight loss. In these cases, seeing a doctor who understands weight loss and its effects can be very beneficial in diagnosing what needs to be done.
Rapid weight loss is considered to be losing more than 2 pounds a week over several weeks. Generally, to lose weight this quickly requires that you eat very few calories.
Rapid weight loss diets can be problematic. On the other hand, there are times that they may be necessary. Very low-calorie diets are the most common method of losing weight rapidly. People who are obese and need to lose weight quickly for a specific reason can benefit from this approach. A person with a body mass index above 30 who is needing to have surgery may benefit greatly from losing weight rapidly.
These programs should be doctor-supervised and should only be done for several weeks. When done in this fashion, the meals are nutritionally balanced and will keep the person more healthy than other options can. Very low-calorie diets can help people lose 15% to 25% of their body weight in as little as 12 weeks. The major problem with these diets is that most people will put the weight back on when they stop the diet.
Most people who try for rapid weight loss will do it on their own. They will do this so that they can look great for a special occasion or to look good at the beach.
