One of the first questions I’m always asked is:
“Is not losing weight this fast dangerous?”
Well, I’m not sure where the idea that losing weight quickly is dangerous. In my opinion, it’s just the opposite. The longer you’re walking around with excess fat on your body, the harder it is for your body to function. Your heart needs to work harder and harder to move your body, which puts a deadly strain on one of your most vital organs. And research has shown that the longer you’re walking around with excess weight, the more susceptible you are to a host of diseases and medical problems.
Because of all the health problems associated with excess weight, doesn’t it makeperfect sense to get rid of that weight as fast as possible?
I think so.
I’m not really sure where the idea came from that says losing weight at a rate of just 1-2 pounds per week is the “safest” or “best” way to lose weight. In reality, there is little medical safety data out there with regards to how fast we can safely lose weight. Most weight loss “safety data” deals with how the weight is lost—rather than the rate at which it is lost. Yes, there are ways to lose weight quickly that are extremely dangerous. And this is an important point because losing weight on The 3 Week Diet is about losing weight quickly and safely without depriving your body of the nutrients it needs.
Dr. Michael Dansinger, the doctor who consults with the producers of the NBC hit show “The Biggest Loser”, states that people can lose 20 pounds of weight in a week — if they do it right.
