Arrow Diet is working!

I just started a couple of days ago and I am down 5 lbs.!. (see diet posted below) I couldn't even eat all the food per day. Its a lot of weight to lose in 2 days but I am drinking 5+ glasses of water each day so I don't really understand why so much came off. How could it be water weight?

I want to lose 80 lbs total and hoping to do this in 3-4 months. I will keep up on my progress by posting how much I have lost. I started on June 6, so I will post my results on July 6 then August 6th then September 6th.The only exercise I am planning is short 5 min increments of walking and or weight lifting with a 3 lb weight. WOULD ANYONE LIKE TO DO THIS WITH ME ?? AS A WEIGHT LOSS CHALLENGE?? I THINK THAT COULD BE FUN!


Diet in short:
Chicken (200 calories, split up into 2 or 3 servings) (large Costco canned chicken breast is 200 calories for entire can) or whatever you like

4 eggs (split up into 2 or 3 servings)
1 cup spinach
1 cup mushrooms
1 cup cabbage
6 cups spring mix /boxed type
6-10 radishes
1 oz. sesame seeds
1 oz. raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup broccoli.
Note: I am planning to use some of the greens and the sesame and sunflowers seeds emulsified in a blender to create a salad dressing for spring mix salads on the diet.

Breakfast: 2 eggs with spinach and mushrooms or just 2 hardboiled.
Lunch: Salad greens with cabbage and spinach radish and one serving of the chicken and 1 egg and
.05 oz sunflower and .05 oz sesame seeds
Dinner: 1 serving of chicken, small salad, broccoli
Snacks: serving of chicken or an egg or radish or salad or combination of these

The total fat per day for the diet is 53.83 grams The fat breaks down like this:
Mono fat - 17.07
Poly fat - 19.64
Saturated fat - 10.78
So yes there is fat in the eggs, but I have changed my mind about fat content (especially monounsaturated).
One egg has about 4.2 grams of fat (so 4 would be about 16 grams ) most of the fat in the egg (3 grams) is monounsaturated a healthy fat that provides nutritional protection for the brain. whereas, low fat diets have been sited in patients who develop Alzheimer's, dementia and Parkinson's disease.
Eggs, however, do have lots of cholesterol but current studies show eating cholesterol has nothing to do with your cholesterol level and in fact the more you eat the less your body will produce cholesterol and it also helps you liver to synthesize vitamin D.

Also I chose the ketogenic diet because it has a natural hunger curbing effect. In a study published in the Lancet, they found that people eating low fat diets and higher quantities of carbs had 30% higher risk of dying during the study than people eating a low-carb diet. And people eating HIGH-FAT diets had a 23% LOWER chance of dying during the study’s seven years after. Also people who continued ketogenic diets (high fat low carb) had a 44% decrease in alzheimers, whereas people choosing a low fat high carb diets actually increased their alzheimers risk by 90% !!! Also mental function and overall satiation and weight loss was found to be higher for ketogenic dieters.
