You lose mostly water during the first days of a diet.

Not all weight loss is good weight loss, and unfortunately, the faster you drop weight, the more muscle you lose.

The longer one is on a diet that severely restricts calories, the harder it is to keep losing weight. As the body loses more muscle mass, the body’s overall metabolic rate decreases, since a resting muscle cell burns almost eight times more energy per day than a fat cell.

Find time for exercise, no weight-loss plan is complete without: nutrition, rest and proper training.

In the process, you will become preoccupied with calories, especially on the low cal plans. Keep track of calories and exercise.
